7 for all BLOGKIND

The Mercury Seven

The charming and witty Erin from Only a Movie has tagged me with the Seven meme. Before we get started with that, would someone please tell me how to pronounce the word "meme"? Is it Me Me? Is it mem sounding like gem? Or is it meme sounding like theme? This is a question I must have answered. Please don't leave me hanging.

We will now continue with our regularly scheduled programming:

According to Erin, I am to list seven random facts about myself and then tag others to do the same. After seven months of blogging and over one hundred posts, you might think that I've already told you every interesting, blog-worthy fact about myself. The thing is……………..Erin said random facts, she didn't necessarily say they had to be interesting. Ladies and gentlemen, prepare to take a nap as I walk you thru the snooze-fest that is: Random facts about me

  1. I once performed (as an adult) in a local production of The Nutcracker.
  2. MHS and I were arrested (together) for being out after curfew in our home town at the ages of 14 and 13 respectively. (We were not married yet if you're wondering.)
  3. I became a great-aunt before I became a mother.
  4. I was voted "Girl with the prettiest eyes" my senior year in high school. My friends got all the good awards like best figure, prettiest girl (Beauty) and best smile (The Saint).
  5. There was a period of my life when I was so fit that you could call me at a moment's notice to do a 10k run and I would do it just for fun.
  6. If time and money were not a problem, I would go back to school to get a degree in American History. I have no idea what I would do with said degree but just having the time to study this subject would make me really happy. (I think.)
  7. When using a pepper grinder, I always turn the device in multiples of eleven. (Don't ask. I have no idea.)

It's hard to know who might want to do this sort of thing and who already has the next 365 posts already planned so I am going to take this random thing one step further and randomly tag YOU if you are so inclined. If not, to heck with you I completely understand.

I'll think about the assignment. In the meantime, my dictionary says "meme" is a long "e'. Like meem.

Most interesting randomness - balleria, juvenile delinquent, prettiest eyes, super fit, a lover of American History and a twisted pepper grinder fetish.

Sounds like random fun to me.

And you write really late at night!

LOL on the pepper grinder ritual! Not sure I want to consider the meme assignment, just wanted to comment about number 7.

MLJH-It was in the dictionary. Who knew? Well, YOU, I guess. I thought it was just a bloggy word. Thank you for solving my word crisis.
"Twisted pepper grinder fetish". Geez, that sounds weird, now doesn't it?

Gaston-Just a little OCD, I guess.

Fabulous job with the randomness. And the interesting-ness. Happy Saturday!

Are you and MHS in the witless protection program from your life of crime?

very interesting random facts. I'll think about this assignment but since I wasn't tagged directly, at least I won't feel guilty if I forget to do it.

Smart Mouth Broad said...

Di-I'm talking about the whole dish, not an individual serving but I can get carried away sometimes.

Erin-Happy Saturday to you too!

MLS-Yes, definitely the WITLESS protection program. OK, so now I'm tagging you directly. HA

Tres interesting random list. You have many talents SMB. But the pepper grinder thing? That's just weird. ; -)

I say May may in my head for meme. It may be the influence of Hawaiian vowel pronunciaition... let me know how the vote turns out.

Jan said...

I'm kinda disappointed in the whole "meme" pronunciation thing. Given it's nature, I always thought it was pronounced, "Me! ME!!"

Fragrant Liar said...

Meeeeeeememememe. Didn't they used to do that before they sang a song? Back in the 50s or something? I mean, I heard that's what they did.

I'm thinking about going back to school myself. Psychology, linguistics, NLP, brain function. I will if you will.

One Slick Chick said...

I don't care what the dictionary says, it must be me me because it's all about "me". duh.

tera said...

Oh, I love this. I am so going to my blog to do this right now! ;)
Who knows, maybe it will get me a new reader or two!?

Camille said...

That's funny, about your "11 turns of the pepper grinder." Mine is 7. Always seven.

Anonymous said...

You know eleven turns of the pepper grinder is A LOT of pepper! How do you handle that? I think the prettiest eyes award is a good one!!! You didn't say what part you played in the Nutcracker!!

Midlife, menopause, mistakes and random stuff... said...

I feel ya girl..........I can't use the microwave with the instructed minutes. It it says 30 seconds I have to do 36 seconds and so forth.
I too have no clue as to my unreasonable fear of microwave setting heating instructions. Maybe it's because I keep doing it after several bloody mary's??

You can come back to school and learn about American history with me... or I can just tell you what I'm learning. :)

Smart Mouth Broad said...

Psuedo-I think MeMe is getting the most votes going against the dictionary. I am weird and now ya'll have proof positive.

Jan-That's what I think too.

Liar-One of these days.............

Slick Chick-You're back! Just when I unsubscribed to you. Does this mean you'll be posting soon?

Tera-Yay! I found a taker. Have fun with it.

Camille-Ahhh, another weirdo! LOL

BV-I add my pepper when I'm cooking and seldom at the table. So the multiples of eleven are into the entire dish and not an individual serving. They eyes, I guess I should thank my parents but they are small and disappear when I laugh so I've never thought they were all that great. I was a guest at the party in the beginning of the ballet. My stage-husband and I danced party dances and acted conversation. There was a lot of "funny stuff" in the real conversation.

MMMRS-And another weirdo confesses. I love it.

Anonymous-I guess you'll just have to teach me what you've learned because going back to school isn't an option right now.

Beth said...

The next time I use the pepper grinder, I'm going to count how many turns I use. This will please my husband as I usually act like the annoying characters from the old Saturday Night Live who were obnoxious about grinding pepper.

Blue Eyes has a degree in History. Me...I barely know my own personal history!
