7 Random Things About Me

Jen at http://jenshumbleopinion2.blogspot.com/ tagged me for this meme.

Here are the rules:
Link to the person that tagged you, and post the rules on your blog.
Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself.
Tag 7 random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs.
Let each person know that they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.


1. I love words, and I love to make up my own words. This particular meme is right up my alley because I decided a few weeks ago that "randoming" is my new word. When people are saying random things that have nothing to do with the conversation, or they change the topic abruptly, I say that they are "randoming." Two other phrases I like to use are "soon ago" (versus "long ago," which people always say) and "ever-the-more" when anyone says "nevertheless"). Weird? Strange? Maybe. That's me!

2. Another random fact about me is that I love to take pictures and videos, if I only had more time! I can sit at the computer for hours working with my pictures, making slideshows, adding music to a video I've made, or anything along those lines.

3. I am supposed to be on my way to a martini party right now. It started 45 minutes ago, but we want to be "fashionably late." It's only 2 houses down! And the funny thing is... I don't even like martinis!

4. I have a brown belt in tae-kwon-do. When I remarried and moved 2 and a half years ago, I quit, but I wanted to quit anyway because I'm not getting any younger, and my friend broke her ankle breaking boards, so I figured it was time. Now I am not in shape, though, so I miss that.

5. I have 11 year old twins, a boy and a girl. Both my grandmother and my ex-husband's grandmother were twins. And now I have twin step-grandsons who are about a month old and still in the hospital. Lots of twins in the family.

6. Only two more to go! I have quite a large collection of Dreamsicles which I posted about in Sunday Scribblings http://www.sundayscribblings.blogspot.com/ a couple of weeks ago. They are so sweet and pretty. I have gotten tired of getting them, though, because I have no place to put them anymore, and because I don't want a Dreamsicle for the sake of having a Dreamsicle, only if it is special to me in some way such as signifying the birth of my babies or something of that nature.

7. Last one! What shall I put? This is the first MEME I have been tagged for! It's fun! And now, it's your turn. Who shall I tag?

First I'd like to say I can't find your sunday scribbling, it's not listed under forgetfulone? Or I'm too tired to see it right now...hehe
I love how you make up words, they are good ones too! Can I use randoming? I can think of a few people I could say that too or about...
Good meme!

Hi!
Better late than never, thanks for the tag. I enjoyed reading your randomness. :)
