Eight Random Things About Me MeMe

I've been tagged by e-mom of C H R Y S A L I S to share eight random facts about myself.

Finally e-mom, here are eight stuffs about me! Bear with me everyone - since I don't really live a very exciting life... at least I try very hard not to.

ONE: I grew up with nine siblings, four brothers and five sisters.
TWO: I have two awful looking scars on my right leg, which became so much a part of my anatomy that I was surprised that others didn't have them too (when I was youngER).
THREE: I do ---- have a hole in my head! (Covered with a titanium plate.)
FOUR: I have twin daughters.
FIVE: I struggled in public with shyness so much that when I was in high school I quit rather than take speech class! Then I studied a big book, had a week of testing and got my GED instead.
SIX: I have a natural ability for drawing and painting, but I don't do it very often.
SEVEN: I've designed and beaded a guitar strap for my husband's bass guitar.
EIGHT: I've been to London to "bizit" the Queen, but she was not at home at the time.

I copied and pasted the rules to play this meme and here they are:

1. All right, here are the rules.
2. We have to post these rules before we give you the facts.
3. Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
4. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
5. 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, and to read your blog.

Here is the list of eight I am tagging. NOTE to those I'm tagging - you don't have to do this if you don't want to, or if you don't have time to, or if you have done it already, or if you can't think of eight things that we might enjoy knowing about you, or any other reason which you don't have to explain. I think this is supposed to be fun. ha

Connie Marie said...

BBF! Three comments and I was saying - Surprise, surprise, surprise!

I hope you have the bestest vacation! I will miss you.

Constance said...

You're up early! Or is it late?


I learned a lot more about you today. I am glad you did the mememe.

I want to find out sometime why you have a hole in your head. That sounds scary. You need to do more painting and drawing, I would sure like to see some. You are so talented.

I will do my best to do the me me me thing, I certainly donot life an exciting life but like you, it is the way I want

See you later,connie from Texas

Mom... you make me smile. A lot. I love you!

Connie Marie said...

BBF - I was up LATE! ha! I got home, got on my computer and had to do something... so I did my MeMe and it took me so long to figure out just those eight things!

It was fun doing the MeMe 'Thoughtful Connie,' I am glad that you will do it too.

Marie! I love you too!

e-Mom said...

Thanks for playing along with this Me Meme (Clever!)

It sounds like you had an accident of some sort when you were youngER. It's all so mysterious... your two leg scars, your metal plate. :~)

I love the sketch at the top of your post. Yours? Do more! {{{Hugs}}}

Hi e-mom, thanks for tagging me! Now I can be The Mysteriously Scarred Bloggin' Lady ---my new blogger identity, ha!

I did do the sketch of a sea otter, they are such cute little critters riding the ocean waves. These little guys were a big part of the Alutiiq heritage before Christianity made a stronghold in our villages (Through the Russian Orthodoxy's missionary efforts). I am glad Christianity came and told my ancestors about the Creator, so that they are not still just worshipping the created beings.

See you at your blog!
