Like a virgin, tagged for the very first time

My first meme, "7 Things About Me." Thanks Treadmillista for the tap on my virtual shoulder. Essentially I'm supposed to tell you 7 things you don't know about me. Since this is a babyblog, you don't know too much about me yet anyway, so this is an easy one.

1.) I hate clutter but love saving. My closets are packed full of things I have shoved in them in an attempt to declutter my rooms. The rooms are now fine and I am working on making it possible to open my closet doors without stuff tumbling down like some bad sitcom.

2.) I like to think of myself as an extrovert but the plain fact is that I refuel myself by being ALONE.

3.) As a pre-teen in New York, I used to sit for hours at a time in my mom's Vega and listen to Robert Klein on am radio while chatting on her CB with other teens. That was my seventies version of MySpace.

4.) An anagram of my maiden name is I became a thin rich actress. Still waiting.

5.) I can easily pass up sweets of most any kind, but put a lump of French Onion Chip Dip in front of me and I will eat it with a spoon.

6.) I vote pretty much the same way now as I did in college...socially liberal, fiscally conservative.

7.) In my twenties three friends and I used to call ourselves the Fearsome Foursome...we traveled together, partied together, lived together intermittently, moved across the country (or out of the country at times) from each other but still called one another in the middle of the night when heartbroken or just too drunk; we even took a death-defying helicopter ride together in the Caribbean with a daredevil pilot. Now in our forties, I'm not in touch with them like I wish I were, but I know that if I needed to I could call them in the middle of the night and they'd forgive me for waking their spouses and kids. I love and miss you guys.

Hmmm...who to tag? Miss M and PDX Mama and YOU, the lurker who wants to be asked. That's right, I mean you.


  1. Will do, will do. Thanks for the tag!

    I'm the same about clutter. I would so love to be clutter free but it's really hard with all this crap around me!

  2. I accept your challenge! My seven things are up and ready to go!

    Thanks for the tag!

  3. Mmmmmmm french onion dip *wipes drool off of chin* I'll confess that "Top The Tater" is my favorite dip when paired with chips though.

    Thanks for playing!

  4. Seconding the onion dip. Good think it's lunch time I'm off to find some...


Brilliant observations:
