TAG! .... I'M IT


Suz over at, Day by Day..My Life as a Busy Bee, tagged me when I wasn't looking. Silly Suz! I'm not sure there are seven things about me that you don't already know, or that I haven't already confessed to in another meme, or moomoo. I'm gonna dig deep in my psyche, but forgive me if I'm redundant....or boring.
1. Since retiring, I try to stay up to watch the sunrise so I can watch Red Eye at 2 a.m.

2. When I was in seventh grade, I wanted a bra in the worst way. Now that I'm retired, I hate bras....period, but I still wear one....sometimes.

3. I would rather have eggs for dinner than breakfast.

4. I would rather have pizza for breakfast than for dinner.

5. I was shocked to see that, in a recent poll on my blog, that the dance my readers wanted to see the most on Dancing With The Stars was the Hokie Pokie.

6. I have a huge carbon footprint, but I'm gonna buy some of these bags at Walmart even if it puts me in the poor house. The price of the bags won't break me, but maybe the trash can liners I'll have to buy will. Just saying.

7. I intend on doing all my Christmas shopping this year with Billy Mays.

The rules:

1. Link to your tagger and list these rules on your blog.

2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog - some random,
some weird.

3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their
names as well as links to their blog.

4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment
on their blog.

5. If you don't have 7 blog friends, or if someone else
already took dibs, then tag some unsuspecting strangers.

Here are the bloggers I'm tagging

1. Cortney at: The Cortney Chronicles
2. Big Hair Envy
3. Marey at: Elemento-P
4. Cooper at: Cooper Griffin Scott
5. Hank at: Hula Hank
6. Caroline at: The Zen in You
7. Chesapeake Bay Woman at: Life in Mathews

Whew! I don't know who has or hasn't been tagged before...if you have, then please pass it on, or just pass......


Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

Thank you, Grandma J. I'll try to do this before my trip to the dentist tomorrow to get my tooth out, but in case I don't I'll get to it later this week assuming he doesn't kill me. Or I don't kill him. Or something like that.

There are just SO many interesting things about you! I didn't want the post to ever end! I can not wait to hear about the fantastic Christmas presents you get from Billy Mays this year. I know your family is going to be delighted about them : ). You are such a giver!

Suz said...

Very cute. Just so you know, I can't watch Billy Mays now and NOT think of you!!!!
I hate bra's too, but there is such a thing as public decency. :) Actually, it may be a law.
Go get your bags at walmart...stop whining about it. :)
But, now you have to buy the biodegradable garbage bags for your trash cans.
I know, it never ends with me!!!!Have a good day!!!

Kristin said...

Is Billy Mays that Oxi-Clean dude who is always yelling?

Is there Orange Glo in someone's future?

& I kind of get the eggs thing... eggs too early in the day can be terrifying.

Out of the kindness of our heart, my family would like to donate our Christmas Gifts to those less fortunate, so....just send our Billy Mays gifts directly to the Salvation Army, or some other worthy organization.

We have been so blessed by you in the past, still enjoying the William Hung CD, Talking George Bush Doll, Mounted Bass Fish that sings....and oh, so much more! So, this year, go ahead and send our amazing gifts to others.

your grateful daughter

Caroline said...

Oh geez...I will get my answers up later...this should be interesting...

Grandma J said...

HSH, you forgot to mention the Bedazzler and Clapper.

Grandma J said...

Kristin, yep, that's the same Billy Mays...Orange Glo, Kaboom, Hercules Hooks, now health insurance.

Big Hair Envy said...

OMG! The Bedazzler! My sister and I were trying to think of the name of that thing this weekend. We were at a Flea Market, and some woman was walking around with studs all over her jeans! I'll have to email her....I'm sure she's been up at night trying to think of it...

My tag post is up!

heartshapedhedges said...

I will never forget, the day I came home from the 3rd grade, and instead of ironing, or watching Watergate, my mother had spent her morning bedazzling my favorite jeans. I cried so hard I thought my eyes would pop out of my head.

She thought they looked cool with studs going up and down the sides. I never wore them again.

Billy Mays gives me the hives.

It's the gift that keeps on giving.

Fishin' Mama said...

I'm with you on the bra....it used to be the first thing that came off when I got home (when I used to work).
These days....sometimes I wear it, sometimes I don't!!
It's my perogative!

CGS said...

You should get the bags from HEB. They are big, have a reinforced bottom, and hold a ton. I have 8 and people always want to know where I got them from. I try not to look at them like they're idiots as I point to the shape of Texas on the side.

A Billy Mays commerical came on yesterday and I mentioned your name.

We'll get Coop's tag up as soon as possible.

Biddy said...

haha i know what you mean about eggs for supper and pizza for breakfast!! i also like cold fried chicken for breakfast. i know, i'm weird.

oh! the shoes? target baby, only $19.99!

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

Howdy, Ms. G. J. - I can't get to your meme/moomoo until later this week. I promise I'll do it. And as always I appreciate you thinking of me.

The second career in comedy is really something you ought to consider. Wait, maybe you already DO perform. At the compound, on the cruise, in California....NOW I get it. Those men are your posse. Your fan club.

I just ask for front-row tickets to the next performance, where hopefully there's a small section of the speech that talks about technology, laptops and hand-held blogging devices and what-not.

Where "what-not" equals "CBW has no idea what is current technology and what is the next step up from climbing a telephone pole to make a phone call."
Thanks again.

M, Ms. R, Mom, Auntie M, Marey said...

...and I will eat pizza with you for breakfast :)

Just posted...I will have to think of some good ones about me for tomorrow!

Hula Hank said...

LOL You know I have never recalled Billy Mayes until I came back over for my US road trip!!!!

The one I do remember is that ditzy blonde chick who did all those infomercials for Ronco!!!!

PS what I meant to say all along was that Billy Mayes reminds me of that guy from This Old House!

hollywood said...

Have you bought the Mini Gliders or Mini Sliders?? Everytime I see Billy Mays pitching that I think of you making lots of tiny hamburgers for your grandkids and JJ. And the easy cleanup is fab, no dishsoap, just a tiny wipe w/ a papertowel. That is true efficiency. (or later food poisoning)
