Ok, I've been tagged again (I love it - makes me feel important) by Liseysmom (I know, long time ago, but I've been lazy, I mean busy.)

Here it is - "I quickly write 8 random facts/habits about myself, and then tag 8 people. If I tag you, you had better play".

1. I can't exercise with dirty teeth, so I always brush before I go for a walk, run, bike ride, etc. I also enjoy my food more if my teeth are clean. I guess because my mind is so focused on the grit that I can't focus on the chocolate?

2. I have a small scar on my forehead from my second case of chicken pox - I didn't have it bad enough the first time so I got it again. I used to notice the scar a lot more when I was younger (maybe I just had a lot more time to look at my face before I got married and had kids), but I hardly ever think about it any more.

3. I have quit the habit of popping my knuckles three times over the last 20 years. I actually went 5 years w/o popping them again the first time, about 2-3 years the second time, and only a couple of months the third time. My knuckles were really sore and it hurt to do anything, especially mow the lawn, so I started popping them again. Ugh.

4. My hair used to be straight when I was younger so I would get perms every so often to get some body and wave. The last perm I got was my sophomore year in high school and my hair never lost all of the wave. It's slightly wavy on the bottom and straight on the top.

5. I have dry eye syndrome, which I found out about on my mission. My tears dry up in about 2-3 seconds instead of the normal 15ish. I guess I'll have to wear glasses until I die as contacts are out and so is Lasik (for now anway, maybe they'll come up with something in a few years and I'll have it done when I'm 50 and it's no longer experimental)

6. I used to love to daydream ALL THE TIME! I didn't mind going on long car trips because I would spend the whole time daydreaming. I loved doing boring, mindless jobs at work because I could fantasize that some cute famous actor would see me walking down the street and be mesmerized by my inner and outer beauty. Pfft, ha, anyway.

7. I love to make spreadsheets and piles. Organized piles (I call them organized, to others they are just piles). Gluby says that explains how I can love playing Solitaire so much, I'm just making more organized piles.

8. I listened to Pink Floyd's "The Wall" for the whole summer before my Senior year of High School and didn't get that it was a story and not just a whole mix of songs like you normally hear on an album, er cassette (so now you all know I am over 25 - at least I didn't say 8 track; that would have been Neil Diamond's "Coming to America" ).

I'm going to tag Bishop Rick, JOOM, FFG, Supernova, Gluby (love ya , babe!), Degenerate Elite, T. Wanker (miss you!), and JulieAnn. Sorry if you've already been tagged and I missed it. That means I need you to do it again so I can read it and get caught up! :)

Thanks! I needed something to put on my blog.

Loralee Choate said...

My hubby has dry eyes and when he got Lasik, the plugged his tearducts to prevent it. Worked like a charm. Is that not a possibility for you?

Lemon Blossom said...

FFG - Glad I could help!

Loralee - Hm, I don't know. I'll have to ask my eye dr. if that might work with my eyes. Thanks for the suggestion.

Bishop Rick said...

This is the first time I have ever been least that I know of. If someone else has tagged me and didn't respond, its because I'm lame...otherwise I'm cool.

Lemon Blossom said...

BR - Ha! "it's because I'm lame....otherwise I'm cool." I loved that.

I can't wait to read it.

Cele said...

LB I have popped my knuckles, my neck, back, feet, knees, elbows, wrist, and ankles for years. The only one that is hard to do now is my back.

I got busted by my Chiropractor once for getting my back and neck adjusted and walking out and popping my neck immediately. He was, err, not happy with me at all. But it was a really good, relieving pop.

Bishop Rick said...

Lemon, my responsibilities of being tagged have been fulfilled.

Sister Mary Lisa said...

I know I've tagged BR before. I just don't remember when.

Lemon Blossom said...

Cele - I only do the knuckles on my hands and feet, and my left ankle (I sprained it when I was 18 and have been able to pop it ever since), but don't do my back or neck on purpose anymore. It makes me too sore. I used to go to a chiropractor too, but I don't think I ever popped my neck in his office afterward. :)

BR - Yay! Nice list. :)

SML - Uh-oh, BR's gonna get in trouble!

Bishop Rick said...


Uh Hm, are you sure it was BR that you tagged? Not that we need to discuss that here.

Sister Mary Lisa said...

Well, BR, technically I DID tag you here, but I can see where you may not think that counts.

But I wrote an entire blog post just for you, which is much better than a mere TAG. I wonder if you remember that?

Bishop Rick said...

That is the lamest tag I have ever seen. I think I get a pass on that one...and yes, I do remember the post, but that was just to get me to reply to venture a second guess after being the only one to guess correctly on your tag response. That doesn't count either.

Just have to say that my word verification is wcoHOLY. Wonder what that means...

Sister Mary Lisa said...

As if that's the blog post I was referring to.

I love your list!

Thanks for tagging me, LB! I'll do it soon! :-)
