Stepping Out

MOM-NOS has tagged me for a meme. Here are the rules:

1) Link to the person who tagged you, and post the rules on your blog.
2) Share 7 facts about yourself.
3) Tag 7 random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs.
4) Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

First, it really is hard to think of seven salient facts about yourself — especially ones that you think others might find interesting, so I apologize in advance for those of you I am about to tag. Here we go:

1. I am a reality TV junkie (though I like to think discriminating). I love Survivor, Amazing Race, Top Chef, Dancing with the Stars. I hate The Bachelor, Top Loser, Fear Factor and all MTV shows. I am fortunate that my husband is also a hopeless junkie. Together, we watch way too much of this stuff.

2. I love to sew. I love anything and everything crafty, but not the Martha Stewart kind of crafty — she’s too much. Really. Even though I just finished reading the latest Living.

3. I have not picked up a pool cue in nearly four years and it’s doubtful I will in the next four, but there was a time in my life that I played pool (or billiards) every single day. Not only did I captain my pool team to a regional championship title, I used to be pretty good. The first time I met my husband was in a 9-ball tournament.

4. I can’t cook. I mean I can cook, but I hate it. I am uninspired. “What will I make tonight?” “Does it involve meat?” “All the meat is frozen.” “Let’s order a pizza.”

5. Aside from my very rewarding (though tiring) job of being a mom, my dream job is to be a floral designer.

6. I am not the only person in my family who has twins. My brother has identical twin girls — they are 13. What’s cool about this is that identical twins do not “run in families.” According to Wikipedia, “… [identical twins] is not considered to be a hereditary trait, but rather an anomaly that occurs in birthing at a rate of about 3 in every 1000 deliveries worldwide.”

7. Though I went to school in northern New England, I have never skied.

Okay, phew. Done! I’m tagging the following seven people. Play only if you’d like and only if you’ll have fun!

  • I did this one awhile back. I tried to reinvent it by doing “Seven Random Things About the Pie” – but I only came up with two (hence my “Two Pieces of Pie” post). It’s hard, isn’t it?

    I’ll admit one random thing, though – I’m now three episodes behind on Survivor. Two are on tape, the third I’ll have to download – but I really don’t know how I’ll watch all three before Thursday night. Sigh. I really AM too busy.

  • I’ll definitely give this a go. It may take me a little while, but I’ll get to it, I promise!

    Your not cooking item? That’s me almost every night. We eat more frozen pizza than I care to admit to.

  • Aha. After a few meme’s and the linking nightmare, it gets easier. Well done you!

    My mum went on a flower design course millions of years ago. She was very keen for a while and had quite an eye for it. I wonder how her life would have turned out if she hadn’t had us three to contend with?


  • I second the love of reality shows and the reluctance to cook! I’m very good with frozen ravioli.

    Unfortunately we never get to see our reality shows anymore…I feel as if we are living in one sometimes, though.

  • Thank you for the tag. I started this meme after getting tagged by a few others but just haven’t been inspired enough to finish it. I will try …

    I like the IDEA of cooking (reading cookbooks, planning menus); it’s just the actual chopping/processing/cleaning up part that I could do without.
