Eight Random Facts Meme

So while I was in New York (do you see how I like to drop the fact that I actually left the lovely state of Georgia for a change into every possible post) Greenblogger tagged me for the Eight Random Facts Meme. I didn't happen to notice the tag until a couple days ago, but in light of my current lack of blogging inspiration, I am grateful for a jumping point..Lets just hope it's not off a cliff.

It's also the first time I have been tagged for a meme, so I feel a bit like I have been invited to sit at the cool kids table.

Let's see...I'm supposed to post the rules:
A. Each player lists eight facts/habits about themselves
B. The rules are posted at the beginning of the game before those facts/habits are listed.
C. At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

Check.

Now I have to come up with eight interesting facts. Eight. Interesting. Hmmm...
In case some of you haven't noticed a reoccurring theme on my blog lately, I am feeling a bit insecure about my ability to actually be interesting. I guess this will either help me with this issue, or put a big fat nail in the proverbial coffin. Anyone taking bets?
  1. I share joint custody of my two cats with my old roommate (whom I love dearly). When we each got married she moved with them to Michigan. Then when they got on her husbands nerves too badly she couldn't bare to keep them from me any longer she drove them 15 hours to come back and live with me. She now has visitation rights and comes to see them almost never regularly.
  2. I bite my nails down to the quick. It's a neurotic habit. Yuck
  3. I believe the Bible is true.
  4. It used to be my dream to sing on Broadway and I am addicted to show tunes. It's now my daughter's dream to sing on Broadway and she is also addicted to show tunes. Sharing and obnoxious passion with your offspring: Divine.
  5. One of my biggest regrets is that I only have a high school level education. When Clara starts school I will finally get to start college. That will be one year after Brandon starts college.
  6. My name is Joy and I am an awful driver. I have wrecked every car I have ever owned (with the exception of my current vehicle), at least once. Usually several times. I was once in two car accidents in one day. I wrecked my car and the company vehicle within hours of each other. It's currently been three years since my last accident.
  7. I have a driving anxiety (see #6) and really wish I could find a way to function in this world without ever having to drive.
  8. I love to watch movies but rarely ever like the movie. I simply can't find a way to like reality TV.
Now I am supposed to tag 8 people to do this Meme but since it's been making it's rounds for quite a while now, I am only tagging three.

  1. A Happier Girl
  2. From Glory to Glory
  3. Losses and Gains

Great to read more about you! thanks for participating. I also have the driving anxiety--and a bit of road rage that I am not proud of. :)

I wish I had a bit more driving anxiety. I'm a speeder. An impatient sort, and like thirtysomething, I've got a bad case of road rage.

PS Will your daughter make it to Broadway, y'think?

I love what you wrote about the cats! That was a good laugh! Are they gaining any weight? As a defense to Steve, although he was totally annoyed with them, I was the one who made the decision b/c I felt the Lord pressing on me that it wasn't the time to have cats. At this point I don't know why, considering I want to get one again, but there must have been some reason b/c I loved those boys. Maybe it was Steve's lack of enthusiasm w/ them. That being said, he was the one who was more upset- not me- when we left them at your house. :)

With you completely on reality TV. Blecht! And I also don't like most movies. Give me a good miniseries or a PBS special and that works out well. :)


Peace,

Hey, thanks for sharing! Don't you find it interesting how we who blog dearly love all things trivial about one another?

I'm a terrible driver too. My last accident was a couple of months ago when I plowed into the side of a truck. In front of my son's school. During drop off. When everybody and anybody is out, casting sympathetic looks your way. Stuff of memories, I tell you!
