7 + 3 = A Perfect 10...??


I've been tagged for two different memes and I thought I'd give you all double the fun and do a two-in-one.

First, Karolee at My Montana Moments tagged me for 7 Random Things about Me. I did something similar awhile back, but let me just say I could easily list 70...'cause I'm just a random kind of girl.

#1. I never sneeze more than one time. I like sneezing, especially when I have those nasty colds. A good 'ole sneeze makes me feel better...kinda tingly or something. I envy serial sneezers.

#2. I've never had the chicken pox. The younger of my two brothers got them at age 25. He was deathly ill.

#3. I cannot drive a stick shift. My boss has a cute red stick-shift BMW and I can always cop out of any chore having to do with her car because...well... I can't drive it.

#4. The least flattering color for me when it comes to clothing is peach. The best? Benjamin Moore #1420 - Softened Violet. Not that I wear paint colors, but if I did, that would be the one I would choose.

#5. I won first place in the State of Iowa poetry contest when I was in 6th grade (1978), for a poem I wrote 5 minutes before lunch entitled The Future. The last line was, The future is like a closed door, waiting to be opened. I was nothing if not cliche back then.

#6. I got glasses in 4th grade and contacts in 7th. I'm legally blind in my right eye. But you'd never know it by looking at me.

#7. I really kinda like loading the dishwasher, especially glasses and plates. Forks and all the baby bottle paraphernalia, not so much. And I don't have a baby anymore, but he still drinks bottles. It's my issue, not his.

Next, An Iowa Mom tagged me for this 3 Things Meme:

Three jobs I have had in my life:
1. Lifeguard (but Carolyn the Pool Lady does not care. Not one single bit.)
2. Human Resources Director - I got burned out on people's sense of entitlement during the dot.com boom
3. Executive Assistant - oh, the fun I had!

Three places I have lived (I'm not very out there when it comes to moving. I've only lived in Iowa and Georiga. So, I'll list three cities I've called home here in Georgia)
1. Duluth - known for some great golfing
2. the Buckhead area of Atlanta - known for some great eating
3. Marietta - known for the Big Chicken

Three TV shows I like to watch (not that I have the TV on 24/7 or anything like that)
1. Little People, Big World (TLC)
2. Inside the Actor's Studio (Bravo)
3. Almost anything on the Food Network

Three of my favorite movies:
1. The Silence of the Lambs - oh! The psychological thrillness of it all!
2. Grease - I often listen to the soundtrack and I am not afraid to admit it.
3. The Shipping News - Kind of a sleeper...but darn good acting

Three places I have been on vacation:1. Seaside/Seagrove, Florida - (aka Paradise) Hi, Kat!2. Cancun, Mexico - yes, I did get sick upon return
3. Seattle - I think I drank 2,578 Starbucks cafe mochas

Three of my favorite foods (not that I think about food 24/7 or anything)
1. Masman Curry with Tofu
2. Coconut Cream pie
3. Green Salad with grilled salmon, balsamic vinegar and cherry tomatoes

Three of my favorite animals (but I wouldn't want them in my house)
1. Great White Shark
2. Stingray
3. Wild Mustang


Annie :

I had a stick shift once, I broke 2nd gear (the first time I drove it)...
and I love that little people/big world show. I don't know what it is, I just really enjoy watching it. Silence of the Lambs scares me.
Great random list Jill!

Knit-Wit :

Fun. I might consider killing in order to drive a BMW - stick shift and all - it's my dream car. :)

Just watched Grease last night. I wonder if they'll do a remake someday. They've remade "Hair". Yeesh!

Praise and Coffee :

I sneeze in threes! My husband even waits to "bless me."

I can't wear peach either- I look ill if I do!

Nice blog!

Lauren@Baseballs&Bows :

The Grease soundtrack makes everything more fun! I like to clean to it!

Dianne :

You're funny...your comment about Benjamin Moore # 1420 made me laugh out loud. Too funny...and great list(s)!

Shawna :

I did the same meme, but it had me list 4 things. I like Little People Big World, too. TLC has a lot of neat stuff!!

Lyndy :

Great post. So fun to learn more about you.

Have a blessed weekend.


justabeachkat :

I love reading memes since we get to learn more about everyone. Love your list. We have alot in common.

BTW...hope you'll be vacationing here again soon.


Susan :

Enjoyed your perfect 10.

Vader's Mom :

Little People Big World is a good show. And the stick shift...I can't do that either.

Sonya :

Interesting...my MIL is named after Marietta except her mom spelled it wrong on her birth certificate! Her name is Maretta Georgia. I like it because it's unique!

I learned to drive on a stick shift and almost stressed myself out! I was ready to give up driving and walk everywhere. I'm glad I learned on it though cause now I can drive anything!

Sue :

I've heard chicken pox as an adult can be scary. Great excuse to get out of errands. :)
