Eight Random Facts, 29 Days Later

"Bad Friend has promptness issues looking for more tolerant friends to join crew of managing details of my life."

-is what my personal ad would read if i had one. (the platonic one, of course.)

So sorry I missed this way back, Jen - I think I was in The Holy City.

HERE’S THE RULES…- We have to post these rules before we give you the facts.- Players start with 8 random facts/habits about themselves.- People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.- At the end of your blog post, you need to choose eight people who get tagged and list their names- Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they are tagged.

Rules, shmools, drools.

  1. Best job I've ever had is the one I started in 2001 - (absolutely shameless mamablogger gushiness alert): The Mama.
  2. I can't stand sesame oil. Makes me gag. Sesame seeds? No problem.
  3. I am a triple virgo. Scared you, didn't I? (it's true)
  4. I think I may never fully move beyond the residual anger that is part of my lifelong bereavement process. Losing your child=Biggest fucking rip-off you can imagine life tossing your way.
  5. I think I would have five four children one more child if dh wasn't so terrified of chaos. And being outnumbered. And the lack of money. (I think my cervix just cried out "TRAITOR" in protest and anger )
  6. My father chose my daughter's name. He had died three months before. He came to me in a dream and told me to name her after a song he used to play for me on the piano. I did. Which is why she is known 'round these parts as 'Fugue in D minor'.
  7. Both dh's father, and my own father died on our mothers' respective birthdays, and both within the same calendar year. I don't think this was very nice.
  8. I was a vegetarian for 17 years and now I love cheeseburgers.
  9. I don't like to follow rules.

I can't be the only thinking...what the heck is her name? I always assumed it really was Supergirl ;-)

Fugue in D minor? Love it. If she were a twin, the other could be Toccata or Prelude.
I'll let you know when my meme is up!

1.My "special" vit. E lip balm allows me to sleep through the night. All other products will simply not do. Don't even talk to me about Chapstick...

2.I l-o-v-e beer. But only bitter beer.

3.After a year and a half of low dose chemo treatment, my new hair is like the hair "down there"

4.I have three dads, three brothers and three sons. Not that this has done much in the way of me really understanding what in the hell is going on inside their heads.

5.I wish I lived in Mexico, but I still like Seattle.

6.I love middle-school aged children even though they won't let you cuddle them on your lap.

7.I secretly call my 12 year old's new private bedroom the Masterbatorium.

8.My favorite part of yoga is when you breath in a certain way until you feel high.

Triple Virgo? As an astrologer (and Virgo rising), I'm extremely impressed! I've only met two triples in person--Gemini and Leo. (Leo had the COOLEST hair.)
