Meme, Cute (erm, gross) Kid Story  
 I was tagged by dieloreley.  *hugs*

1. List seven habits/quirks/facts about yourself.
2. Tag seven people to do the same.
3. Do not tag the person who tagged you or say that you tag whoever wants to do it.

My Facts

1.  I listen to National Public Radio every morning and get consistently pissed off by it's blantant, unrepentant liberalism, but continue to tune in anyway as I have sort of a masochistic tendency and this way I don't get really hurt.

2.  I crack my knuckles constantly (I know).

3.  I cannot go to sleep without putting chapstick on my lips.  Right now it's Mentha Lip Shine from Bath & Body Works.

4.  I've acted in over 40 plays and directed 23.

5.  I have a compulsion to buy blank journals.  I bet I have 10 right now that are halfway filled up with one thing or another.

6.  I cannot stand to be yelled at from the opposite end of the house.  By anyone.  If you want to talk to me, come into the room I'm in.

7.  I was attacked (molested, really) by a dolphin on my honeymoon.  I really must post about that one day....

8.  I'm a rebel maverick no-good-nik and I'm not tagging anyone.  So there.  But I'd be interested in yours, should you want to list your quirks.  Even in the comments!

Cute Kid Story...

Today I was Super!Mom and got up early enough to make homemade blueberry muffins for my family's breakfast.  I set the plates down in front of my boys and noticed that Ethan came in the kitchen and got a napkin.  Aaron didn't.  So...

Carrie.  (calls from the kitchen- only five feet away) Aaron?  Do you need a napkin?

Aaron.  (from dining room, mouth full of muffin) No, Ma'am.

Carrie.  (still not looking directly at boy, calls) Don't talk with your mouth full, son.  Why don't you need a napkin?

Aaron.  (with joy) Because Katie is my napkin.

And I turn to look  in the dining room just in time to see Aaron holding out his blueberry muffined hands out for Katie the Black Lab to lick.  Blergh. I suppose I should be grateful it wasn't his face.

    ......and I'm done with the podcast.  Once I listen to it and post it, it'll be up.  Tomorrow, the latest.

I feel:: busybusy

UGH-I can so totally relate. This is one of my biggest pet peeves.

It's only polite, right? I don't do it to them, so I ask that they not do it to me.

Exactly. :)

I've heard about randy dolphins getting frisky with tourists. Do tell this one.

I put Rosebud Salve on my lips every night before bed.

And I love your kids.

I will. I need to scan that picture, though... It's indecent.

*hugs back* You have much more interesting quirks than I do. You know, upon reading about your lip balm, I remembered that I have a body lotion from Bath and Body Works. So I went to check what fragrance it is -- White Cherry Blossom. And then I thought I'd put it on and squirted waaaay too much onto my hand, so now it's all over my legs and arms. And it reminds me of last year because my American friend from high school brought it back for me for my birthday last year. Ahhhh memories...

YUM... blueberry muffins. Go Super!Mom!

Love the Aaron story. He is practicing green living, saving paper.

NPR?! Liberal?!!!
When I listen I just hear them report the news!!

Give an example of unrepantant liberalism, please if you accuse.

Your M

I CAN spell unrepentant.
