I hate it when someone has to remind me twice about something. Especially when it appears that I'm ignoring their generosity.

Like when Karen Deborah from Fresh Fixins awarded me with the Kreatv Blogger Award...

So I want to apologize PUBLICLY to Karen Deborah for dragging my feet. I did another Kreatv Blogger 7 x 7 meme back in August. It's similar, but a tad let me see if I can dust off some more stuff that you guys don't know about me.

Just so you know, I will not delve into boring stuff like colon cleansing or sleep apnea. Those topics deserved their own post...and I did them already....

Let's get started, shall we?

Seven Things I Did Before:
1. Before age 16 I sucked my two middle fingers. wait....I still do!
2. I had a paper route in 7th grade. I inherited it from the boy next door.
3. I got busted ditching school in the second grade. The milkman found me and took me to Sister Annunciata Marie
4. In 7th grade I got busted shoplifting a tube of Tangee lipstick at Woolworth's. My friends got away with theirs.
5. Seriously? I used to hang glide
6. Skiing the Canadian Rockies
7. Twirl a baton. and I was pretty good with a yo yo too.

Seven Things I Do Now
1. Go to the movies once a week. Before retirement it was once a year...maybe!
2. Blog, blog, blog. unless I'm blogging
3. Shop at Walmart. Almost only game in town.
4. Take pictures everywhere I go. Which alerts security in Walmart
5. Eat and sleep at ridiculous hours.
6. Plan more travel adventures.
7. Still give blood every 12 weeks. It's called cholesterol cleansing.

Seven Things I Would Like To Do
1. Travel more
2 Win the lottery....all of them
3. Celebrate Christmas with all four of my kids and their families....the same year!
4. Lose some weight.
5. Take a few classes
6. Convince the powers that be to heat the pool in the winter.
7. Visit some countries in South America

Seven Things That Attract Me To My Husband
1-7 It was all good

Seven Favorite Foods
1. BBQ....anything
2. Coffee
3. Baby back ribs...and other pork stuff
4. See's butterscotch can have the rest of the box.
5. Bread.....good stuff like rye, sourdough, pumpernickel
6. Ice Cream

7. Water...I drink tons of Aqua Fina

Seven Things I Say Most Often
1. Ok
2. Huh?
3. Yes
4. No
5. Hi
6. Good Bye
7. Thank you

Now, I'm supposed to pass this award on. I only read Kreatv blogs, so I'm leaving it up to you....if you do this Meme please let me know, and don't forget your Award!

PSSST! I really don't suck my fingers...

Travel is good. Let's go some where, like a caravan.
I can't be sure but I think I've seen you suck your fingers before.

Ooooo, I like this one! I'm stealing it (I say that about all your memes, but they're good.)

Pumpkin Delight said...

Oops! My last comment posted before I was done. I'm glad you clarified the finger sucking. That's only fun if someone else does it...wait, did I say that outloud?

Grandma J, I learn something new about you all the time. You can twirl a baton? You used to hang glide? I think you're really a superhero disguised as a retiree living in a compound.

Thank you for making me laugh at 5:30 in the morning BEFORE coffee! The one that cracked me up was the taking pictures in Wal-Mutant. Security alerted. Too funny.

The sucking your fingers part scared me a bit.
I bet if you start a letter writing campaign you can get that heat turned on.....get the crazy neighbor on board, they are probably scared of her. :)

Cool Breeze said...

I too am a big Aqua Fina fan, and barbeque and coffee and ...

The Incredible Woody said...

I'm always up for a trip. Where shall we go???

CGS said...

to Virginia!

Caroline said...

mmmmmmmm....BBQ and coffee! Now we're talkin! When is dinner?

Big Hair Envy said...

When you come to VA, I will make sure you have everything on your food list:) The catch is, you have to twirl a baton first. Heehee!!!

Life with Kaishon said...

I didn't know you could hand glide. You are DEFINITELY a super hero! Definitely, positively! I got this same award from Karen Deborah. Isn't she nice. I don't know how to add the award thing to my blog. I just wish I was smarter at this stuff like you : ). I tried to do the other thing you told me about and every day it tells me I got 0 visitors. It makes me laugh : ). I think I need you to move in with me for a while. I promise to be SO nice, make all of your favorite foods, take some classes with you and let you teach me how to discipline Kaish!

PS You are definitely optimistic!
