Six Random Facts About Me

A new bloggy friend, Happy Mommy, tagged me for this one.

Here are the rules:
1. Link to the person who tagged you (i.e. me)
2. Post the rules on your blog
3. Write 6 random things about yourself
4. Tag 6 people at the end of your post and link to them
5. Let each person you have tagged know by leaving a comment on their blog
6. Let the tagger (me) know when your entry is posted

Six Random Facts About Me:
1. I used to wear contacts. My old friends in TN remember this and have had to adjust to seeing me in glasses; my new GA friends don't know me any other way. After 17 years of contact lenses invading my corneal space, my eyes rebelled!
2. I'm addicted to chap stick. Must have access to it at all times. There's a tube in the "key bowl" on my kitchen counter; a tube in the car; one in my purse; and one on my bedside table.
3. I hate wet paper. Wait. Let me rephrase that: I'm deathly afraid of wet paper. No clue. Weird, I know. I hate the beverage napkins they put under your water glass at restaurants. Soggy tissues from the laundry make me gag. That trick where you crinkle a straw wrapper and watch it expand with a drop of water - horrifying!
4. Not much on sandwich wraps either. Think it has something to do with fact #3 above - the "fillings" get the wrap all icky.
5. I love snakes. Wish I could have one as a pet, but My Sweetie says no way Bummer. Afraid of wet paper. Enchanted by snakes. Told ya I was weird.
6. I was voted "Most Likely to Make My Kids Eat Broccoli" at my high school banquet. No comment.

So, St. Theophan Academy, Confessing Me, Reluc Tant, Tate School, Mostly I'm Tired, and Heritage Academy... you're IT!

You're on, homey (except I won't have access to my blog again until Sunday night, so you'll have to wait - but I'll get some time to think about it!)

Funny about the paper! It bugs me too - but I don't think quite that much!
I had a pet snake (or should I say snakes, since I didn't do a great job of keeping them alive for long) in middle school. I had asked for either a skateboard or a snake for Christmas. I think my parents made the wise choice (even though my mom had to endure a couple of "snake escapes"!). LOL! I love reptiles but am still more found of snakes

Wanna do the tag but might not get to it til next weekend. Thanks!

Love your list! Snakes--WOW! You'll have to write a post and tell us more about that!

Me? A bit more "normal"...hate snakes; never gave wet paper a second thought...LOL. Wonder where on earth that comes from.

I love that straw paper trick. If we ever eat a meal in a restaurant together again, I promise not to do it!
