8 Random Things

I have been tagged by 1-4 Grace to do this -- so here goes
Okay, first the rules:
1. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
2. People who are tagged write their own blog about their eight things, with these rules.
3.At the end, choose eight people to tag and list their names.
4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

8 Random things about me:
  1. I am not sporty. Everyone else in my family enjoys playing sports and is athletic. Not me. To those who think athleticism is a requirement for people who work with youth: ppllllttthhhh.......
  2. Mashed potatoes are my favorite food.
  3. My cats are almost never called by their given names. Ollie is usually referred to as "meow meow" and Andrew is often called "buddy."
  4. I hate unloading the dishwasher. I don't mind loading it, but putting dishes away--blah.
  5. I have driven almost the entire length of I-90. I only lack a little bit of the part between Boston and Lake Michigan.
  6. With only a few exceptions, I do not like chocolate ice cream. But ice cream with chocolate sauce is good.
  7. I have never read anything by Virginia Woolf, though two of her books are currently in my possession AND I have an agreement with a friend to get started on that.
  8. I really miss Scotland and am having severe Scotland cravings.
umm, I'm not even sure I know 8 people...so, if you read this: you're it!!


  1. Aw, dang, and I was going to tag you for it!

  2. I agree about chocolate icecream. The chocolate is too diffuse.

    Don't go to your grave without reading Virginia Woolf and Edith Wharton.

  3. I love mashed potatoes as well. I esp. like how my dad fixes them with butter, sour cream, salt, pepper. Yum.
    I also do not call my cat by his name. He is Bud, Bubba (I live in the South), Bub-bub, or Da Baby! I say the later in a high pitch voice with emphais on last syllable.
    Thanks for playing!!

  4. Re: Virginia Woolf, may I suggest "Flush" as a fun summer read. It is told from the point of view of Elizabeth Barrett Browning's dog.

    It's delightful and based on real life. He even gets dognapped!

  5. Oh, and do you like plain Jane mashed potatoes, or do you accept variations? R makes a version with smoked gouda and dried mustard, Oh My Lord. And another version topped with port caramelized onions. [tummy growling]

  6. These were fun and YUM mashed potatoes.
