I have been tagged...Enjoy at my expense!!

I was tagged by my friend Ericka to give 8 random facts/habits about myself.The Rules:1. I have to post these rules before I give you the facts.2. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.3. People who are tagged need to write their own blog (about their eight things) and post these rules. (**if you’re a non-blogger, you can email them!)4. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.5. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog. Unless everyone on your list has already been tagged, then you just feel very exposed as you reveal some of your innermost habits or random facts.....Enjoy. Random Fact #1.................. I am socially retarded....I am not good with meeting people for the first time or even worse in a large room with alot of people. I am o.k. with an introduction but I guess because I know that I am not going to remember them in 3 minutes, I flake out. I have been absolutely alone in a room literally filled with people, many, many times. If I am ever surrounded by people and I am the life of the party , it is all a tiring act that I have gotten really good at. It is incredibly frustrating. Random Fact #2 ........... In the fall, right before the first cold front comes in, I, as if possessed by the spirit of a hibernating bear, begin putting plastic and duct tape around all windows inside my house. I fill all gaps with expanding foam. I clean and dust off all heaters in preparation for the big chill. I go to the store and buy extra blankets and lots of meat to fill the freezer. I am not sure why I buy the meat. I just threw away bags and bags of meat some with a sell by date of 2oo1.... I kind of quietly freak out about the weather in the winter. I actually still have a window duct taped and plastisized, just too lazy to take it down for summer. Random Fact #3...........I have a rational fear of becoming hairy and moley. My grandmother was a moley woman and my Dermatologist said it was possible because of genetics, already very hairy, I just fear the day when I can't wax, shave or tweeze.... Random Fact # 4........... I often question my sanity...They say it is the artist in me...I don't know, I just question....Random Fact #5............. I would put a few habits on here but I have recently come to the realization that I don't really have any habits. I used to smoke but was able to break that habit, I can drink coffee or not doesn't matter, I don't really have any habits....I find that weird. If I don't put my watch out where I can see it, I won't put it on that day. I don't even have the habit to look at my empty wrist a 100 times on the days I didn't wear it. I look at it once and forget about it. I don't put a necklace on everyday, I just leave it on. Same with earrings. It is really wierd, to me anyway. If you can think of a habit that I may have let me know, it would be helpful. Random Fact # 6............. I have three dogs two of which are Huge ( over 150lbs) all of which stay inside the house and I have been told by many people that I NEVER smell like dog. Huge Huge ....huge. I have a secret...I just don't touch them after I get out of the shower or before I leave the house. Once my clothes are on, I am out the touch the mama...Random Fact #7............. I collect things to put things in, containers, I typically don't put anything in them I just keep them in case I needed to. This is one of those time when I use Random Fact # 4. Random Fact #8................ I usually wait until I get the RED letter to pay my water bill, not really sure why, I pay all other bills on time but I have waited until disconnection day to pay it. It is kind of a control thing, I don't know, again Random Fact # 4....... I am looking forward to reading yours.L.

2) If it storms..she'll likely step on or over you to get back to her house.
3) She kills 350 mosquito's a day.
4) If your on the phone with her longer than'll likely hear "STETSON, I'm gonna beat your A** if you don't move away"
5) Her eyeliner and lip liner is tatooed.
6) Her dogs drink out of her toilet bowl
7) She has a purse and sunglasses addiction.
8) She secretly wished she could play virus infested video games on her new computer.
Ok....just thought I'd add a few for your entertainment as only the SISTER knows her best! Love you with habits and facts and ALL OF combined sister!

Jonathan, Andrea and Luke said...

Ohh, one more thing: 6) she calls me "Poo, Poo" when I call her. Not sure why? But it's very high pitched and very affectionate.
ONE MORE: 7) She's on high alert when it comes to your hair. Trust me...ain't nothing you can get past this girl.

Love how you prepare yourself for the big chill! stocking up on meat and taping all the windows- and caulking! That's great!

ericka said...

LOL Lisa!! SO true, you NEVER smell like the pooches! That is amazing.

Ok so why is everyone calling ME the freak... with Andrea's nose picking and you with your plastic and duct tape and expanding foam and container obsessions.... and I'M the freak???

So fun to read your facts... I have one to add.

Whenever you want to introduce Lisa to a friend of yours that has good hair, you can bet that Lisa will say something like "Nice to meet you, I like your highlights". I tested this once with my friend Patricia. I said I want you to meet someone, and I bet she'll comment on your highlights. We love the Lisa :)
