who knew i was psychic?

so i have been tagged by tina. being tagged means i am supposed to write 7 things that people don't know about me. i find this a titch difficult seeing that the only people who really read my blog are my friends and family but... i will do my best!

oh yeah, and by being tagged, i now have to tag 7 other people... not sure i have 7 other people to tag but i'll try!

so, first i will tag heather from dooce... i know this is a long shot but, what the heck! she is quite possibly THE funniest person i have ever read in my life! but, she's kind of a blog-guru so i'm not sure she will have the time for this crap... read her blog though... she's HYSTERICAL!!!

then i will tag misty from ourhouse... she made me the super cool pink elefant box of goodies that i won.

next i will tag picklesanddimes... this is a new blog i have discovered that is also really damn hilarious.

then i will tag my little monkey... she won my pay it forward... by the way, i will be sending your gift asap i PROMISE!!!

then there is my cousin kelly at irish aria.

my sewing teacher vicki at hollyhocks... she's ready to birth twins any day now, but maybe she'd like a little something to keep her busy!

last, i will tag the new girl... another blog that makes me laugh.

so i actually have 7... who knew it?

anyhoo... my 7 little known facts...

1. i have a really weird memory linking songs to occasions... for example, every time i hear that "angel" song by shaggy i think of an incident that happened (QUITE a few years ago) with my sister in law and a friend at a local bar... i won't get into it, but let's just say that we were kicked out and some fists were thrown. this brings me to my second little know fact...

2. i am not tough. at all. BUT if you heard my mouth when i get going, you would think i was mike tyson under this blonde hair! i really am such a weinie that it's kind of pathetic. if i stub my toe or get a paper cut, you would think that the world was ending! but oh boy can i talk the talk! i have actually had grown men admit that they are scared of me!

3. i have absolutely NO money management skills. for real. any suggestions??? i'm open to any advice!

4. my girl tina who tagged me originally scarred me for life from playing sports. way back in the day i was on an opposing t-ball team... i was playing short stop and she hit a line drive that blasted me in the ankle. ever since then i have been afraid to play any sports.

5. i have ripped on tina about that story forever!!! she doesn't remember it... so she says! honestly, as i said in #2 my ankle was fine... i'm just a baby! BUT believe it or not, i was actually a fairly good gymnast in my day... from age 4 until 14 or so i did gymnastics. the people at my gym wanted me to start competing, but my friend that i went with wasn't good enough to compete and i didn't want to do it alone so i stopped doing gymnastics. what a tool i was!

6. until i hit junior high i was FRIGHTENINGLY shy! yeah, i'm serious! everyone called me "velcro child" because i never left my mom's side.

7. i have videos from 8th or 9th grade where i profess my love for my now husband. i am obnoxious and giggling, with my big glasses and braces saying "i love gerry stead. some day i will marry him. i LOVE gerry stead. some day i will be mrs. gerry stead." also, at my mom's house, there are probably 47,000 places that say "i heart gerry" written on the walls of closets, written on desks, written on basement walls, etc.

who knew it? maybe #8 should be that i just realized that i was psychic in 8th grade! :)

Thanks for tagging me...I already had my seven interesting things up--and since I can't come up with anymore (I know, I am pathetic) I will link you back to that!

That was too cute! I love that I knew you when you were shy and attached to your moms hip!
Thanks for the tag, now I'll have to actually do something on that damn blog.

I don't believe that you were ever shy...all lies.
