Just another RANDOM Monday....

Another tag….

Wow I guess I do have a few friends in this world…

So Buildermama tagged me to tell you 7 random things about me:

  • I used to do temp work…I have worked at two different temp agencies and have worked for among other companies - HUD, Circuit City, Capitol One and EDS. My most interesting one was working as a receptionist for an “age-restricted” apartment community, where I could be assured if an ambulance entered the front of the complex within 10 minutes I would field at least 2 dozen calls from residents wanting to know who died and if a ground floor apartment had become available.

  • Twins do run in my family and I did warn Third Child of this fact before we got married…so he was warned. In my generation of women 3 of us have children…2 of us have sets of twins…you do the math – I can’t wait for my sister to have her set of twins

  • I am addicted to Coconut Snows…don’t know what snows are? It is basically finely shaved ice with flavoring…I count down the days when our local “Snow Shack” opens…and then trick my children into thinking they are getting a treat when we stop by the Snow Shack – when in fact we stop because I jones for a damn Coconut snow. Oh and Chai Tea – I love Chai Tea….ummmmm

  • My engagement ring is a simple blue topaz…TC told me he couldn’t ask me to marry him until he could afford a diamond…well if that were the case I would still be waiting…so I told him not to worry that there were plenty of diamonds in my family and I didn’t need a diamond…hence the blue topaz. However my grandmother didn’t like that and gave TC a wedding set my grandfather had specially made for her after she lost her original engagement ring – one with 20 diamonds set in platinum with a matching wedding band with 12 diamonds…I get loads of compliments on it…

  • I weigh less now then I did my junior year of high school - not a whole lot less...but less nonetheless - However I weigh about 25 lbs more than I did when I entered (and left) college.

  • My first real “make-out” session was with the boy next door…


  • I love quotes….seriously love quotes – I hear something and have to write it down – I have small scraps of paper all over the place with quotes written on them…in a box at home…tacked to my bulletin board at work....shoved in the bottom of my purse

So now I am tagging other people – hummmm – many of my PIM’s that blog have already been tagged so I’ll just tag one for now….but if anyone else would like to play along by all means go for it…

So Jimmi - tag you are it :)

Ok, I lied. One more comment.

I work at a funeral home and I swear that the same 2 dozen people who call you about the apartment are turning around and immediately calling me to find out when the arrangements are.

I am still laughing about that one.
