Meme from Megg

Megg just tagged me for a meme. It's especially fun to participate because Megg is one of the very first friends I made out here in Blogland. She is a real treasure - a generous, warm and gifted person who is a treat to know.

The 8 Random Things Meme

  • Players post these rules before we give you the facts.
  • Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
  • People who are tagged write their own blog post about their eight things and include these rules.
  • At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged.
  1. My Venus is in Scorpio which means I have very intense feelings, form deep bonds and have a jealous streak a mile wide. (Who me?)
  2. My fear of deep water is so intense that watching water scenes in action movies can elevate my heart rate and increase my breathing rate.
  3. When we went on our honeymoon to the Dominican Republic and I saw passionfruit for the first time, I thought it looked, well, revolting, all goopy and lumpy. (If you haven't seen it, this is what it looks like) But then I tasted it and had it at every meal and still miss it! Delish!
  4. I have a list of movies that I won't watch because they're too nightmare-inducing.
  5. When I was in university I scheduled all my classes between 11:00 and 3:00. That's still a good schedule for me.
  6. When I was a little girl, I loved to bake. My mom said that I could bake anything I wanted as long as I left the kitchen exactly as it was when I began. I felt so privileged to be able to use the kitchen and took the clean up seriously.
  7. I'm a straight arrow. When we were little we had a rule - if you find a present, you don't get it. I accidently found a game that I was going to get for my birthday. I didn't say anything but when I opened the present on my birthday I burst into tears. My conscience couldn't bear it.
  8. I once tried to break up a fight on a streetcar. I didn't even think about it. I just walked towards the guys and tried to snap them out of it.

I tag: Suzie, Shannon, Jenn, Carmen, Vedrana, Star, Melba, Sunny

And to all you wonderful ladies, participate if it makes you smile or catch the wave next time if that feels better. Hugs to you all!

I don't like Horror movies. they make me feel bad inside and make me think bad things will happen to me.
You know I have been working with the Law of like attracts like. I read something recently that I had never thought about everything we give our focus to from what we watch, read, see or hear...then we think about...and then we are attracting that into our lives.
It is all making sense to me now.

Love your picture!
I will play next post!

hey - thank you so much for the sweet words!!!

I loved your list! I wonder if you and I compared our movies lists if they would be similar - I am scared to watch pretty much anything nowadays!!

The other things say so so much about you - the more I read what you write and who you are and what you reveal, the more wonderful I think you are!!

I think that I may have found you thru wishcasting a while back, but maybe not.

I'm curious. What is your scary movie list? You have me wondering...
