blog tag!

14 March 2012

Kristen and Erica tagged me in this chainpost that is currently flitting around the blogiverse. And I'm never one to break any sort of chain anything -- not willing to risk seventy years of misfortune and bad blog karma. Not me. 

There are rules, facts, questions, photos, and people that shall be tagged.
Wild ride, folks ... hang on tight ... here vee go.

1. The first rule is to post these rules.
2. Post a photo of yourself and 11 things about yourself/your life .

5. Go to their blog/twitter and tell them that you've tagged them.
I love detailed directions. Thank you, numbered and specific directions.

2. When I was little I had a mushroom cut, wore flannel nightgowns in picturesque fields and was very well behaved. 
3. When I was in high school I worked at Hot Dog on a Stick and let my little brothers wear my important hat whenever they pleased. 
4. When I first got my braces on, the first colors I requested were black and neon green -- both colors on each tooth -- which matched beautifully with my pink floral dress and white bangs. 
5. My mom was a cuter preg than I can ever hope to be. 
6. When Facebook first came out I always referred to it as "The Facebook".
7.  At my first jobbity job on big bad Capitol Hill answering phones and sorting facsimiles on one of my first few days I answered a call from Newt Gingrich ... and when taking down his name ... asked, "how do I spell that?" -- I'm still as embarrassed as I should be, don't worry.
