8 Things Meme

I was tagged by Lady G at A Glance Into My World to do the 8 Things About Me meme. I do memes in my own way.

I recently did one of 7 things, but here goes.

Here how this works:
1-Each player starts with 8 random facts/habits about themselves.

2- People who are tagged, write a blog spot about their own 8 random things, and post these rules.

3- At the end of your post you need to tag 8 people and include their names.

4- Don't forget to leave a comment and tell them they're tagged, and to read your blog.

Remember how I said I do memes in my own way? Well, I don't tag people. If you want to do this one, consider yourself tagged and have at it, OK?

1. I think pineapple on pizza is an abomination.

2. I hate it when I answer the phone, and a computer tells me I'm on hold because all of their telemarketers are busy. OK, moron, YOU called ME. Yeah, like I'm gonna hang on hold for that. I hate talking on the phone anyway.

3. I try to always chew with my mouth shut. If alone, I sometimes break this rule. I then punish myself with something difficult like taking a nap, or…

4. I still like to open the car door for my wife, IF she doesn't beat me to it. (She's quicker than me.)

5. I make it a point to leave the toilet seat down when I'm through. I'm not perfect about this, but darn close. But I've always wondered, what's the big deal? One flick of your finger and gravity will do it for you if you happen to find a toilet seat up. How hard is that? And it only takes about 3/4 of a second.

6. When I was young, I liked to draw, and could copy things really well, but couldn't make the leap to, say, drawing a real person's face.

7. I have to use Sensodyne toothpaste for my cold/hot sensitive teeth. Even though the other brands supposedly have the same active ingredient, Sensodyne is the ONLY one that works for me. Every time I've tried other brands, my sensitivity comes back within two weeks. Grrr.

8. My paternal grandmother, whom we called Mamaw Eunice, loved to eat calf brains in eggs, and also ate squirrel brains. Hence, I NEVER, EVER, EVER ate eggs at her house.

If you want to do this, then you're tagged. Blame me. I'm used to it.

Very well done. The reason I tagged you was because I only visit 8 bloggers and you're one of them. :o)

When it comes to pizza, I'm a like a child. I only like cheese, pepperoni (when I'm in the mood) and light sauce.

My Knight also opens the car door for me. I don't try to beat him to it. I like that gesture. He is also thoughtful about the toilet seat. The last time he left the seat up was when we were newlyweds.

My Still Waters is an artist. I use to be able to draw, but never pursued it. Now, I can only draw stick people.

As for eating brains... I agree with you. EWE GROSS!!! My grandma loved to eat tongue and liver. My mom does too. YUCK!

I enjoyed what you had to share. Thanks for participating, even though you don't like doing memes. :o)

I have the same issues with being put on hold by some moron who called me.

Also brains. Some of the older farmers around here like gravy made from pig brains.

Those have got to be the most creative list yet--NO?! Squirrel brains? Holy Bullwinkle and Rocky Batman, that's not good.

Though the pizza thing is the only item of disagreement. :)

And I'm going to try Sensodyne, my teeth get so sensitive to touch it kills me to brush. Kills! But rest assured I still do it.

Seriously "Oh. MY. GOSH." I would definately never eat at Mamaw's house!
I do have a great idea for tongue, though, in my archives, the Most Powerful Weapon on Earth.

Dining on odd things seems to be generational...those old folks always ate weird stuff.

I wonder when my kids will say that about me!
