Random Things Meme [Feb. 29th, 2008|11:33 am]
Lanette
Here's how you play: once you have been tagged, you have to write a blog with 16 weird, random things, facts, habits or goals about yourself. At the end, choose 8 people to be tagged, and list their names. Don't forget to leave them a comment and tell them to read your blog. You can't tag the person who tagged you. Since you can't tag me back, let me know when you've posted your blog so I can see your answers.

Random Things

1. I have very curly nails. It sounds strange, but they are shaped like a little crescent moon. Manicurists find them annoying no doubt. For that reason I have only 8 toenails. I had to get 2 of them removed due to being totally ingrown for so long when I was a teenager.

2. I have teeny tiny hands. My ring finger is only size 5. I look bigger in photos than I actually am in person.

3. I think a variety of men are sexy. I love strong arms and shoulders, but both shorter and tall, six pack abs and a soft belly, and dark or light hair or skin are attractive to me. Overall though, a nice face and good heart are the most attractive features a man can have.

4. I know how to weld. I also can replace a deadbolt, assemble furniture, and fix a broken toilet. I can easily change my own tire.

5. I love to be a follower if inspired. Being a part of something bigger than myself makes me happy. Because of this, the manager and leadership I have at work makes all of the difference in my morale and productivity. I've gone from 1 (with 0 being you quit) to 10 in the last few months due to improvement in this area.

6. Wearing thigh highs and mary janes to work makes me feel powerful and like a rebel. I miss doing that, but in trying to have a more 'professional' image, I can't anymore.

7. I won't tolerate being yelled at. I put up with too much of it as a child and I simply refuse. I'm glad to discuss a disagreement, but if you yell and throw out personal insults, I will kick you out of my life. I've had my fill of verbal abuse.

8. I honestly enjoy being of service to other women if they really need the help and support. It makes me feel loved.

9. Three things cause me to lose rational thought about money: 1. Makeup. 2. Corsets. 3. Gifts that I think will be memorable to someone.

10. It is my goal to retire by age 55 and I have a plan in place to do it. I've been saving 15-20% of my income since I started working at my current job 8 years ago. I've only tapped into that money to buy my condo, my house, and for needed surgery bills. I'll never touch it for anything that isn't critical, because I know I don't have good health yet.

11. I don't have time for people who don't appreciate me for what is special about my personality. If you only see me for what you can get from me or what I look like, I'm bored with you.

12. I've always been introspective, but I've made more progress with it this year in the areas of honesty and hope. I have more hope for what I could be than I have for a long time.

13. I'm very ambitious and driven to accomplish at work, but I'm not competitive. I'm one of those people who loves to win as part of a team, and even if I don't win, I was glad I played. When I don't win, I'm always thinking about how I can next time. Future opportunity is worth more to me than security or sure victory.

14. When I dance, I don't care what other people think of it. It's beautiful in it's own way because it is unplanned and without set moves. I don't bellydance right now, mostly because I can't think about my belly until I fix the extra skin. My caved in bellybutton depresses me.

15. I'm a social person. If I don't go out at least a few times per week, I get depressed and feel caged up and antsy.

16. I love being a redhead. I don't think I'll ever change my hair color unless it's a wig for a costume.

I tag Amanda, Kristen, Bel, Angie, Angela, Shannon, Tiffany, Steph, and Dez

Dude, I'm totally right there with you. And the sad part about the makeup is that I hardly ever wear it!
Substitute shoes for corsets, and the last one...yeah...that's me, too.

I have the same feelings about a lot on your list. On 3, 5, 7, 8, 11, 13 and I'm becoming 15 and hoping for more of 12.

I did mine. Thanks for the tag :)

I love these kinds of meme's because I think it puts more of us out there to see each other on the inside better. Or am I being Capt. Obvious here?
