Pleeeze...who cares?

I have been tagged by this brat to name 6 UNimportant things about myself. Hhhhmmm..."Isn't everything about me important?" I asked my dear husband. "Yes honey, of course it is." (smart man) I asked my kids to name a few and they came up with the first 3. I was expecting something like...you take too long to get my underwear washed or you make peanut butter and jelly for lunch too often. They surprised me and came up with these...and they are all true.

1. My family does not allow me to eat cherries (don't even ask why).

2. I walk...alot.

3. If there is chocolate in the house I can't concentrate on anything else until I have eaten it. For years I started my day with a Diet Coke and a 3 Musketeers. I have since traded in the candy bar for a protein bar but stand firm with my Diet Coke. And yes...I do believe that is the breakfast of champions. And you all were wondering where my big hiney came from!

4. I met my husband on a blind date and knew by the end of the night...he was it. (oh wait...that is important...but we will count it anyway)

5. When I was little my mother made me wear a Pixie hair cut. People used to ask me if I was a boy or a girl.

6. I love all those television shows where someone dies in the first 5 minutes and the next 55 minutes is spent trying to figure out who~dun~it.

So there you have it. You can now see what an exciting person I am.

The rules:

1. Link back to the person that tagged you.

2. Post these rules on your blog.

3.Share six unimportant things about yourself.

4.Tag six people at the end of your entry.

So TAG...YOU'RE IT

Sandy Wood...Sam I Am

Gina Gabriell ...Eleven Morning

Joyce Stahl...Enchanted Productions

Iva Wilcox...Iva's Creations (who was already tagged by the bum but I thought if she was tagged two times...she might actually do it)

Yes, Ms Smarty Pants, I was tagged twice, thanks to you!! And now I am mulling over some mundane facts about myself to include on my blog for the world to see. After reading yours, we share your #5. But you forgot one...about cows making goat cheese...does that ring a bell? Thanks for thinking of me. ;-)

I just saw you in the ZNE blog! I can relate to your list. Wanted to marry my husband from meeting him, would do it again now 25 years later! Diet coke for breakfast? Doesn't everyone start and end the day that way?! I also had the pixie cut, we must be from the same era! Mary

Okay so as your sister...I must know about the cherries. And the pixie haircut, ahhhh I remember it well. But it was so cute, I never remember anyone wondering if you were a boy or a girl. It was the Dorothy Hamill haircut. HAHAHA!!
