Dreary Friday & Tag, you're it!

It's cold, overcast, damp, and dreary here today, which is Friday, even if the date says Wednesday. Blech. So, here's a cup of tea/cocoa/coffee to brighten your day.

Stamps are justjohanna. The patterned paper has been in my stash forever and I kept it when I paper purged last spring. I'm glad I did because it does work well with that stamp.

Now here's the "Tag, you're it!" part of the post. My friend, Donna, tagged me, but I don't know enough bloggers that would actually answer the questions, so if you're reading this, "Tag, you're it!" Post back to let me know that you ran with it. *grin*

Here are the rules!
1) Link to your tagger, and also post these rules on your blog; 2) Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird; 3) Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs; and 4) Let them know they are TAGGED by leaving a comment on their blog.

Here are my facts.
1. Sometimes I crave chocolate candy. I know, that's not weird at all.

Here's the odd part. Just buying the candy satisfies that craving. When I was working, I'd buy a candy bar, stick it in my drawer, and discover it months later after it had "bloomed". Now I just buy it and give it to my dh. That works since he's a thin guy and can use some calories.

2. I used to play the violin and wasn't too bad. I quit after I told the high school orchestra leader what I thought of him. In very plain terms.

He still remembered me six years later when he encountered my sister.

3. I'm a night owl and am usually up til 3:00 a.m.

4. Lost is my favorite show ever and not just because Sawyer is serious eye candy. I would most definitely not put him in a drawer for later. *guffaw*

5. I still haven't read the last Harry Potter book because I don't want for the series to end. So for me, it hasn't. This drives my dd to distraction because she wants to talk about it with me.

6. I have the car of my dreams. I dream small. Petey, my burgundy PT Cruiser, is great, though he goes too fast. It's the turbo's fault. Not mine. Now why didn't my own personal police officer believe that? (He's mine because he gave me a warning and then ticketed me twice within a year - *sigh*)

7. This is a secret. I get a huge kick out of the teenager. She's fun to spend time with, when she's not being totally annoying, procrastinating, or being a slob.

8. Here's a freebie. I love taking surveys because I'm ever so opinionated. And I'm usually right too. *snort*

I don't understand why political campaign people never call me for to complete a survey or for my opinion!

So, tag you're it!

Aren't you glad you visited today?



  1. The soft color really bright me up! Glad to see more things about you!

    PS. Playing the violin is so cool...

  2. That paper works perfectly with that image! Great card!

  3. You? Drive too fast? Never!!! Once again, you've made me smile.
