The Random 7 (not related to the Oceanic 6)...

I've been tagged by Tonni (who, btw, makes the cutest bows in the world...just ordered some for Maddie today!). The rules are as follows:

  1. List 7 random things about yourself that people may not know.
  2. Link the person who sent this to you, and leave a comment on their blog so that their readers can visit yours.
  3. Post the rules on your blog.
  4. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post, linking their blog. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

The difficulty for me was seven random things that people may not know. I tend to be a pretty open book so I have a feeling that some of these things may not be surprises for many. But here goes anyway:

  1. I can say the alphabet backwards in less than 5 seconds (accurately!). This is my one and only party trick. Once I've executed this feat, I'm done... I will suddenly drift to the corner of the room and start drinking myself into a stupor.
  2. I have eaten Häagen-Dazs out of crystal dishes in Billy Graham's living room with his wife and daughter. One of the greatest experiences of my life...thanks to Lamb's Players Theatre and Bob Smyth. We had performed the night before at a tribute to Ruth. I have treasured pictures with Billy and Ruth in the green room after the performance as well as pictures at their home and at dinner with Ruth. I will never ever forget this adventure.
  3. I have sung with Amy Grant. On the radio. On Jeff n' Jer...San Diego's big morning show. We sang "Big Yellow Taxi"...she played guitar and sang back up... BTW...she is the skinniest person I have ever seen...bony little lady!
  4. I am a voracious reader. Most of you probably know this. I recently finished "Enduring Love" by McEwan and "The Bonesetter's Daughter" by Amy Tan. I am currently reading "Almost Moon" by Alice Sebold. I absolutely have to read before I fall asleep otherwise my brain is going and going like the Energizer bunny and I will never fall asleep.
  5. I am "reformed" in theology and an amillenialist.
  6. I am on a journey to lose weight. I've lost 15 lbs since January 1st.
  7. One of my biggest dreams is to record a cd.

Now...for my dear tagging victims... I am tagging Red Letter Girl, A Day at the Zoo, This Pile, Picture This, Jess Strantz, Julie Spiller and Treasured Possessions!

OK...my 7 are complete! It was kinda fun! Thanks for including me.

The BEE tattoo...it's really important to "date" the tattoo artist cuz then he'll draw them all for you - freehand - and then convert it to body art. It kinda looks a little Mary Englebreitish...only not as animated. The crown is my most favorite part & the writing is in cursive...Capital Q...capital B...

You would love it! I can't believe you only have one - only because they are so addicting.

When/Why did you go to China? I also ate Pig Brain there too - same meal. A gastrological nightmare...but fun!!
