tagged ~*~ 8 random things
















The Fabulous Denise tagged me and here are
8 random goofy things that you may not know about me.

*We have to post these rules before we give you the facts.
*Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
*People who are tagged write their own blog post about their eight things and include these rules.
*At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged and they should read your blog.


1~*~ I came across my cheerleaders uniform and tried it on when no one was home. (it was really depressing, but I had a good laugh.)

2~*~ I once wore a black playboy bunny costume, fishnet stockings, stilettos and was slowly unpeeled, as I danced out of a huge fake banana skin..! (if you can believe this...it was my High School's production of "Those Damn Yankee's" and I played the lead role of Lola, my sophomore year.)

3~*~ I shrunk down to 82 pounds when I was 16 because my appendix ruptured and I stayed in the hospital for 2 weeks. (my boyfriend came to see me, took one look at me, ran away and the nurse apologized for him, while she put his flowers in a vase:(

4~*~ I play the guitar and have written so many songs, I can't even tell you the number. (they are all recorded on some cassette tapes, with me playing and singing. Someday my kids will find them and Know that their mom was a Real hippie at heart :)

5~*~ I often wash my hair in the sink and then go take a shower. (I know this makes no sense...blame my mom, she does it too ;)

6~*~ I am extremely claustrophobic...I HATE elevators, dressing rooms, being in a car without the air blasting and people standing too close, breathing my air. (except my family :)

7~*~ Chicken skin and fat, give me the willies. (if I come in contact with it, I can't eat the chicken.)

8~*~ I spent some time in New York one summer and modeled makeup for Coty cosmetics. My cousin said they used it in a magazine, but I never got to see it. (I was paid $100...hey, that was a lot of money in 1978!) ;)

The eight people I am tagging are Angela, Silvia, Annie, Wanda, Brian, Jack, Mary and Shaz

Ha! Ha! Darlene,

I'm the same with chicken skin and or fat. It just makes me shudder. I think it was because I had to kill and process 200 chickens in about a week when we left the farm--by myself. Until the last 10 years I couldn't even eat chicken.
