More About Us! (Cause We Know You're Fascinated)

Michelle tagged us. 5 Things You Don't Know About Me.

Do you how hard that was, since I've blathered on about practically everything to you people?

Here's Missie's list:

1. I wear perfume, body spray, or scented lotion every single day, no matter what. Except when camping.
2. I am a terrible cook but a terrific baker.
3. The name Alison had never popped up on my baby name radar--ever---until one day in my sixth month when my husband mentioned he liked that name.
4. I have been on Weight Watchers since June 27 and have lost 16.8 lbs so far.
4.a. Today is my 47th consective day exercising. I have never done anything in my life for 47 consecutive days, other than complaining.
5. Other than a brief stint working in a daycare in my teens, I have only worked in the medical field for my entire career.

Mine is stranger but not as impressive:

1. I hate it when my food touches each other on the plate.
2. I took ballroom dancing in college and can still do a pretty good tango.
3. Right out of high school, I was in a community production of South Pacific. The woman playing Bloody Mary got sick after opening weekend, and I was handed the part with no rehearsal- with 12 performances to go. (I was marvelous, dahling.)
4. I have not lost any weight and intend to gain a bit over the holidays. Life is too short to skip pumpkin pie.
5. I was almost lynched once by a group of angry drag queens in a gay bar in Dallas, Texas.

Quirkychild and starvingwritenow, you're it!

Okay, you're on!

And I agree that life is too short to skip pumpkin pie. Any pie, for that matter.

Um, do I even want to know about the lynching and the drag queens from Texas?

Maybe not.

Wow! That's impressive, stepping into the role of Bloody Mary on the spot like that!

And you're so right about pumpkin pie. There's only one store that makes it taste homemade, and I gotta get some. (Too lazy to make it this year!) Yummy, yummy ... that and the sweet potatoes cooked in butter and brown sugar!

I so suck at this. Could I have picked any more boring stuff about myself? Why didn't I just put something about my flossing habits? Sheesh.

Here's Robyn all tango-ey, and almost getting assaulted by guys who were probably prettier than both of us, and I list lotion. Ugh. How bout if I tell you about the time that I almost got high and didn't know it?

So what are your flossing habits? (grin)

And hey, there's nothing wrong with using lotion every day. Better than not using it and having Godzilla skin!

So Missie, is that like "if you're happy and don't know why, clap your hands?"

Ha ha, Missie! I'm a fantastic cook but can't make pastry or anything that requires yeast to save my life.

Thank you, Anne. I fully intend to look for your building when I watch the parade tomorrow!

Aah! I've been tagged! I'll get on it right away!

47 days *applause*

South Pacific! I just love fun. I'm sure you were mahhhvelous.

And of course the lynching by drag queens. Pretty wild. Were they going to string you up with feather boas? Death by magenta marabou?
