The Meme Response

Judy tagged me with having to participate in this phenomenon. Although I don't have others to tag (at the moment), I will not be the weak link, by not responding.

So, there you have it - now for the rules:

1: Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
2: People who are tagged, write a blog post about their own eight random things, and post these rules.
3: At the end of your post you need to tag eight people and include their names.
4: Don't forget to leave them a comment and tell them they're tagged, and to read your blog.

Here are my eight random things:

1. I have been accused of not being black because I don't eat Macaroni and Cheese.
2. I was so tiny that during my first year in college I was asked to give blood, and I was afraid to because I was at the cusp of 110 lbs, LOL.
3. I have more female friends than male friends.
4. My bite is abnormally small. I have difficulties opening my mouth at the dentist office wide enough and biting down on a snorkel mouthpiece.
5. I am a kick-ass Spades player (slightly obsessed).
6. I was forced to take modern dance class in high school (the torture that they imposed on freshman boys). Bonus I had no rhythm until a little before the class.
7. I barbecued for the first time last year in Blue Hills, Maine. It looked good on the outside and required for me to go back outside in the pitch dark with the june bugs keeping me company.
8. I eat half the amount of fast food as I used to at the beginning of the year.

Okay these were about as random as I could get.

does my affinity for mac and cheese make me black?? LOL What about my affinity for you? and Barack Obama?? LOL stopping now to cackle.....

Al said...

PS I love your meme! A bit I didn't know, too!

Ha, ha, it's funny when they learn that we don't eat soul food, at home, on a regular basis, or fry chicken either.

The last time I fried chicken was at your house, what a year and a half ago?

I tried to really bring out some random things. My family used to make fun of me, because they said I couldn't dance, LOL. I was just stiff and rhythm and I weren't necessarily on the same page.

Had to smile at the image of you and the June bugs dancing in Blue Hill... Good times, good times...

You and Al need to come to Belfast. If it's in the winter, I can promise a water view... Just squint hard and find the two birch trees to look between...

Sigh... It ain't Blue Hill, but it is a sweet little town I'm coming to call home.

the thought of you having no rhythm.
hmmm....anyway all i remember is cafe wha. you did fine there putting on quite the show....lol
I think i may be black like al. I love mac n cheese.

These comments really made me laugh. I always thought june bugs and fireflies were the same thing until I saw them up close and personal, big difference, big difference. Yeah we'll have to come up for a visit Judy.

T1 I think I've been making up for lost time since I did get some rhythm, LOL.

You should see my family when I make Thanksgiving dinner, they always go no Mac and Cheese, LOL. I guess to them it's a staple item, to me--Mr. Lactose Intolerant--not so much.
