Another Me Me For You You TOO TOO

I have been untagged to do this meme. I am suppose to link to the person(s) that untagged me, which was Coffeypot. Thank you, sweet cranky funny man! I guess.

Post the rules on your blog.

Share 7 NEW random and/or weird facts about yourself on your blog, tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

1. There's nothing new about me.  I'm old.  But I am always shocked at HOW old I am when I see pictures of myself.  In the mirror, I hold my head just so, and I look younger.  And besides, my eyesight isn't that good.  I like that fish in the mirror poem, it's exactly how I feel.  If I can find it, I'll link to it.  Meanwhile, one weird thing about me is that I used to be able to fold both thumbs back over the back of my hands and it always freaked people out, but now I can't do it any more.

2. I am wearing a Grateful Dead T-shirt right now.  I got it at a Grateful Dead concert--but it was new Dead after Jerry Garcia died.  Biker Buddy came too.  We stood up and danced in our seats.  I would have danced in the aisles but the rent-a-cops wouldn't let us.  Maybe that's not weird.  I'm so weird that I can't tell what's weird and what's not.  NOTE: if you are wearing a Dead shirt right now, tell me. 

3.  I love listening to my son practice.  I know a lot of parents don't, but I do.

4.  I don't like watermelon.  I don't like hotdogs.  When I was a kid, I didn't like anything people fed to kids.  But I did like liver and onions and spinach and the crusts on bread.  Really.  Not to be perverse, but just because that's what I like.  I always preferred whole wheat or rye to white bread, even as a child, and never liked soft white bread that kids usually like.

5.  I like science.  I liked science when none of my girl friends did.  I was the only girl in most of my science classes in college.  I got ragged on and mistreated by some of my professors.  I still liked science anyway.  That's prolly not so weird now, but it was then.

6.  I never file my nails.  Biker Buddy files his though.

7.  I like going barefooted.  I climb mountains in my bare feet.

7b.  I can't remember which things I've said in prior memes.

OK, I tag:  Nadine, Berrybird, jo(e), Blue Rose, and you if you are reading this.  If you did it before and can think of 7 NEW things, go for it.  I think these memes come around more than once, like forwards.

#1, I’m a little shocked when I see my reflection. My mental image of me is still with brown hair, no glasses and no wrinkles. When I get up in the morning I have to slowly sneak up on the mirror, or I might have a heart attack.

#2, I don’t own any shirts with music groups on them. I have some with bears, eagles, and stuff like that, but no groups.

#3, I would love to hear J-Man practice his trumpet. Marni says it’s sweet.

#4, I love all that stuff. In fact, when I work up a sweat in the summer time, I had rather have a slice of watermelon than water or beer. And hotdogs and hamburgers are my staple. I have one or the other EVERYDAY.

#5, I like science though I didn’t have it in college. Other than to experiment with herbs and… well, that’s for another time.

#6, I bite mine off. No frilly nail file for me. I’m too macho for that. I don’t even shave. I get a hammer and drive the whiskers back into my cheek and bight them off.

#7, I grew up barefooted. Both of my big toes had scabs on them all summer long from stomping my toes. I was a bit clumsey. But now, I hate being barefooted. I even wear swimming shoes when I go to the lake or the beach. I’m pussy-fide now, except for my nails and shaving.

You crack me UP!!!

I hope you posted this under your other.

I have some bears and eagles, and stuff like that too, several wolves.

But I also some other music ones.

I need one with a picture of MOZART!

My favorite t-shirt is my tie-dye Almond Brothers t-shirt. I've always hated hotdogs, I still like going barefooted, and I'm fascinated by biochemestry. My love for science goes way back. When I was 9 or 10, I wanted to be an astronaut, but then my dad told me I would need to make good grades to do that, so then I decided on an artist instead. I never made it past the a's in career choices.

I'm going to try to work on my list of seven now, but I might get interupted, so bare with me.

Blue Rose, we seem to have a lot in common!! Cool! I'll be looking forward to seeing your SEVEN.
