Tag you're it!

Alright I can take a hint: I've been tagged twice for this. Thanks Bonnie! :0) and Thanks for the reminder Maggie! The first time I jotted down a few things on pen and paper (then I promptly procrastinated and lost it!) So, here goes a spontaneous random/weird factoid about moi :

I cannot bring myself to blog posts sans photographs. I don't know why, I just can't do it! (Hence this 2nd picture of tulips.)

I don't send out Christmas cards. Wait let me explain!!! (I think I might be outlawed from the stamping community for that one!) I celebrate Christmas with my family, I just like to send cards as surprises (or give blank cards as gifts) throughout the year.

I catch weird phobias-slash-irritations from people. I caught from my amazing aunt Melinda the fact that I can't stand the sound, or feel, of rubbing Styrofoam or cotton balls. It makes my teeth tingle and I shiver. (You asked for random/weird!) ;0)

I am best friends with my family members (paternal & maternal.) And I'm not just being cheesy. I really genuinely like who they are A LOT. Lucky, huh?

I recently decided to go into publishing (and creative endeavours--to finance a scrap booking store and line of stamps) instead of teaching high school. I think I'm too emotional to teach high school. I'd take too much "stuff" home with me and take it too personally if one of my students didn't love English, lol.

I had to kiss a lot of frogs to meet my prince. (No offense Frogs. You just weren't Charles Charming!) I always felt miffed that romantic movies portrayed a lie: no romance could be as romantic as them. Now, I watch them and think: "Well, at least they have part of it figured out, but no fiction could ever capture this feeling!" (And it gets stronger every day--though we do have our "days," LOL.)

I can't imagine not blogging. I used to keep a diary; I have 30 or so volumes with hilarious (and heartfelt) material in them. I couldn't go back to mere journaling. (Though one day I will start an anonymous blog, so I can write without self-censoring, Muhahahaha!) I love the idea of connecting on the net and adore all of the blogs I read that are SO real. I actually have dreams at night about stamping and blogging! lol.

Alright, just two to tag: I nominate Kim ('cause she's crazy busy, but if she doesn't blog soon I shall surely perish!?!) and Ruth 'cause she's such a fun, interesting writer. :0)

Here are The Rules Ladies:
1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself: some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post & list their names (linking to them).
4. Let them know they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs
