Post the rules on your blog.
Write six random things about yourself.

Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
Let the tagger know your entry is up.

1. I am obsessively in love with llamas! They are my favorite animal and I hope to own a few someday. I feel like I have a llama personality...but I don't spit.

2. I'm a pescatarian (I don't eat meat other than fish), because I'm allergic to meat (it gives me migraines), not because I feel any moral obligation to avoid eating animals.

3. I play Dungeons and Dragons every week with my friends. (Yup, I'm a dork)

4. I am a hardcore bibliophile; when I was little my parents would punish me by taking away my books because I wouldn't sleep, I'd just stay up all night reading. I always had all the flashlights in the house hidden in my room (with dead bulbs and batteries of course) and my parents used to take the bulb out of my overhead light at night to keep me from turning it on to read. I now have hundreds of books and my addiction will never be slaked.

5. My paternal Grandmother was the most important person in my life growing up and I spent more time with her than at home sometimes. I spent Sunday's with her from the time I was 11 until I left home for college and I practically lived with her during the summer. She taught me to sew, cook, garden, quilt, and so much more!! She was my friend, my confidant, my counselor, my teacher and a surrogate Mother to me when I was having difficult times with my own Mother while I was growing up. She passed on March 7th and I feel her with me every day.

6. Umm...hmm....something else random...oh, I hate butter because it freaks me out. It looks disgusting and I don't look at it, eat it or touch it unless I absolutely have to (like when I'm making sugar cookies). For some reason it gives my the heebie jeebies. It doesn't bother me if it's melted or once it's mixed in with something though. One year I went to the state fair, and my friend didn't warn me that we were in the building with the butter sculpture even though she knew I have this weird phobia :::shudder::: traumatic!!! (I'm not really afraid of it, but the sight of it gives me the heebies in the same way that some people get the heebies when they see spiders or something, so my friends like to pick on me and tell me I'm afraid of's just squicky!!) Blech, I've got the skin crawlies just talking about it!

I've tagged Rachel (I didn't tag anyone else cause I don't like to bug people, well...other than Rach...and even though I'm not bugged by being tagged I feel bad and I don't know that many bloggers very well so I thought that might be weird and yeah).


  1. I feel your loss and hope with each day the pain soften.
    Just tag anyone and if they don't want to do it they won't. I learn so much about people with these tags. I just don't care for the really long ones.
