Eeeep!! I've Been Tagged!

Ok, I've been putting it off for awhile. I'm really a pretty boring person. Honestly I am. But someone (the fabulous Christopher and Tia to be exact) "tagged me" thus pushing me to blog and divulge 7 random facts about myself to the members of blogland.

I'm not sure that there are 7 random facts about myself that are even worth sharing! But I was tagged, so I'll give it a shot.
1. I HATE the movie ET. Seriously, that little alien thing looks like something that came out of my butt after binging on Chinese food. I just cant watch that movie, seriously all I see is a little turd walking around saying "phone home". I just never saw the facination and hype.

2. I have a sort of obsession with cotton swabs. I am constantly cleaning out my ears, and I'm talking really cleaning, I shove that little q-tip in as far as it will go! I think it feels good and I'm pretty sure I have the cleanest ears in Pennsylvania.

3. My family and I have been going camping since I was in diapers. Once, as a baby, I even rolled out the back of a camper. My parents still go every year, and we usually go and spend a day with them chilling in the middle of the woods, but Mike and I and the boys have never went full on, sleeping in a tent, camping. Somehow as an adult it just doesnt have the appeal that it did when I was a kid. When I look back at my childhood, though, I recall those summer trips to Shawnee as some of the happiest times of being young and I'm determined to let Brayden and Gage experience that. So this year we went out and bought everything that you could possibly imagine needing for camping and in 2 weeks, for Fathers day weekend, we will all be sitting our butts in the woods with the mesquitos. Mike even bought a fancy-schmancy Jeep (had to be a Jeep!) tent. But rest assure, we wont be roughing it, I'll be bringing the laptop and a pile of dvds.

4. I'm pretty sure my kids watch too much tv. Last easter Brayden asked the mall Easter Bunny for Debbie Meyer Green Bags. Its funny acctually because the only tv I watch is the Food Network from like 11pm to 3am. Love me some Alton Brown and Ace of Cakes. But I can quote every single episode of Spongebob ever made. Seriously.

5. I HATE HATE HATE the feeling of anything on my feet. I attribute that to growing up in Va Beach. I honestly and truely wear flipflops for like 7 months out of the year here. I dont even own a pair of tennis shoes, I have like 2 pairs of dress shoes but I'm pretty sure I havent worn them in the last 3 or 4 years. I wear boots when it snows, and as soon as I'm able I take them off. In fact, I've even been known to wear my flipflops out in the snow to go out and get the mail or run errands. And if I go to bed for the night wearing socks I'll wake up with a fever the next day.... I used to do that alot when I was in school to get out of tests.

6. Things that can usually be found in my purse include: my wallet and ID, a Tide to Go pen, random crayons from random resturants I've snatched for the boys for the off chance that we are at a resturant without those wonderfully entertaining color me menus and placemats, a bag of Fruity Cheerios and/or Teddy Grahams, at least 4 Hot Wheels, at least 2 diapers and some wipes. Yup, so my purse, in my fancy Amy Butler Geisha Fans fabric I had custom made for me on etsy has pretty much turned into a glorified diaper bag. But it sure does beat carring around that hospital issue thing.

7. I think that flowers are prettier dead than alive. I have a collection of gorgeously dried flowers, in sweet little vases and bowls, on top of my TV stand in my living room. I've dried just about every flower that I've been given, I even have my wedding boquet from 6 years ago dried and preserved. Dead flowers rock!!

Ok, there you have it. 7 totally random and weird facts about yours truely. Oh and I'm going to cop out and not tag anyone :-) Why? Because this is my blog and I can! Now you can all see me for the nut job I really am!!

Very interesting stuff!! And I always wondered if people really carried those Tide To Go pens. What do you think? I always slop stuff on me. And of course, my kids stain clothes within seconds of putting them on.

I love flip flops and camping. And the Food Network, except we don't have cable so I'm very deprived.

I've got the same problem with stains: every morning I get at least a little bit of toothpaste on me. I don't know why or how it happens, but does.

I am totally with you on the ear cleaning thing! I have even cleaned them so much that I make the skin in there bleed. Eek!

Also, I can't stand wearing shoes/socks either. Yuck.

As a kid, I really like ET. As an adult, he scares the crap out of me.
