7 random things about me

I was tagged by the "Diva of Quilts" to disclose 7 random things about myself. Since I don't have anything quilty to show, here goes....

1. I can cross my eyes. I have been able to do it since I was a kid and it always creeped out my sister.

2. I have a tattoo. I went through a mid life crisis and got a tattoo on my right shoulder. It's the Irish Claddaugh with shamrock tendrils.

3. I was the lead in my Kindergarten play. At least I was supposed to be... We did the Wizard of Oz and I was Dorothy. That is, until I threw up all over my little brother, Mike, at his Christening party (poor baby!!, he was never quite right after that) and ended up in the hospital having my appendix removed. I was replaced by the teacher's daughter, who I am told was not half as good as I was! LOL

4. My husband and I are huge Rock n Roll fans. We are basically spending my son's inheritance on concert tickets and we don't like the cheap seats. LOL~~Neither of us could afford to go to concerts when we were younger, so we are reliving a part of our past. We have seen Bruce Springsteen at least 6 times, Tom Petty about 7 times, Aerosmith, Neil Young, ZZ Top, Fleetwood Mac, Simon and Garfunkel, The Rolling Stones.. This summer we are going to see The Police and ZZ Top. If someone we like is in the area, we are there!

5. I have a sweet tooth. If given a choice, I would have dessert for dinner.

6. I'm afraid of heights. I would be a terrible candidate for the Amazing Race because even a 4 foot step ladder is scary. However if I am enclosed, I'm usually ok like on planes, helicopters and ferris wheels but on the edge of a cliff not so good.

7. My favorite Disney movie is The Little Mermaid. I love that movie! I guess I am Ariel at heart, a rebel, an adventurer.

Well, that's it. I'm a cross-eyed, tattooed, rock and roller who loves sweets, can sing all the words to "Somewhere over the Rainbow"and all the tunes to the Little Mermaid but not on a ladder.!

Too cute!!! Dorothy, cross-eyed with a tatoo doing Springsteen----who'd a thought?!?!?!

OH NO...NOT the ferris wheel!

I'm not afraid of heights per se, but the ferris wheel is just too much for me. I have to be REALLY closed in, the plane is absolutely fine, lol.

I hate ladders too (particularly coming DOWN!!) but I can't do ferris wheels. Too slow! I can do roller coasters because they are fast, and I think screaming and laughing at the same time is very cathartic.

Re Disney Movies, I'm more of a "Belle" from Beauty and the Beast gal.

Hello Annie,

Thank you so much for participating in my silly comment games and never-ending questions.

Your list made me smile. Much like pantergirl I adore roller coasters, although I also like ferris wheels. Height has never been an issue for me. I almost wrote "I like being high." But, somehow that just sounds so wrong.

I nod my head in agreement with your dessert for dinner remark. In fact, in my opinion, a good mean IS judged on the dessert.

Again, thanks for stopping by my blog and have a glorious day!

well darn, because I really needed to get ahold of someone who could sing the Little Mermaid songs while up a ladder... :0 Great facts, thanks for sharing!

My mid-life crisis tatoo is on my ankle . . . the one area that was saggin' or with stretch marks *s* It's a sweet pea, my favorite flower for multiple reasons.
We are rock fans, too. I'm more than a touch envious that you have seen Tom Petty so many times. He's pretty high on my wish list *s*

We have #4 and 5 in common. I could eat dessert all day if I was allowed. :)

I'm also a Belle, but The Little Mermaid was wonderful too!

Hi, Annie. I wasn't supposed to visit you, but since you whined nicely, I decided I'd let Michele send me to your site as well as to another one. Enjoyed your 7 things. I, too, would make a terrible contestant on Amazing Race! (Possibly because I'd rather have dessert than dinner too)
