Six Things...

I was tagged for a meme (by the way, how is this word pronounced?) by Eva over at Sveedish.

This is the second one I have participated in. I’ve seen people do these numerous times in the blogosphere; and though I enjoy reading most of them, some just remind me of emails I’ve seen time and again. Anyhoo, I decided to do this one because it’s random (uh, read my header). And its filler; after being almost non-existent here for about two months I’m still trying to get back in the swing of things and I need me some filler.

The rules for this one are as follows: list six random or weird facts about yourself, and then tag six others.

1. I do not like mushrooms. They are fungus and should stay in the damp, dark ground where they belong.

2. My drapes do not match the carpeting. In other words I dye my hair.

3. I have had three last names. All of them have two syllables and they all end in the letter ‘S’.

4. My middle name is Jo.

5. Though I smoke I can not stand the smell of cigars. Because an old neighbor used to smoke vanilla cigars, I now can not stand the smell of vanilla.

6. My husband and I went au natural on a nudist beach on our honeymoon. Though the beach area was hidden by palm trees and such, once you go into the ocean everyone can see you; including the kids on the pier at the neighboring family friendly resort.

I’m not going to tag anyone. Instead leave a comment telling me something random or weird about yourself.

P.S. Don’t forget I have a contest going on this Friday. The prize is valued at $50.00. Here’s a hint: It will require the use of a camera.

I am a huge mushroom person. I love them. But I am wary of picking them in the woods just in case they are the dreaded 'magic' mushrooms.

I have never gone nude in public, but I sometimes walk nude around the house - does that count?

Fun to learn more about you.

Hi L,

Those were some really interesting factoids. I like mushrooms, but am too pale and burn easily in the sun, so not much nudism in my immediate future.

Best wishes,

Here is a fun fact about me: I AM DYING TO KNOW WHAT THIS CONTEST IS.

Even more cool stuff about you. Nice. And let's see ... I own three guitars and I still can't play guitar worth a shit.

Oh, and BTW, it's been too long since we had coffee. Time to do it again.

I have only eaten a few bites of eggs in my ENTIRE life. I am not sure why they just creep me out. Although I know how to make an amazing egg sandwich, I will never eat it.

[looking forward to the giveaway]

So funny about the honeymoon.

I'm not a fan of the meme either, unless they are different. I think I have six sitting in my saved folder.

I love mushrooms, the smell of cigars and nudists!

I hate swimming suits. There's no real point in wearing them except that you're supposed to be embarrassed that you have a reproductive system and they feel like hell after you get out of the water. Wet clothing always does. The problem around here is that everyone is so fucking lame there's nowhere I can go to swim naked. Just ask Selma - I'm about ready to move to Australia, where I understand they're a little more forgiving about the whole thing.

I love graph paper.

Fun post. I have number 3 in common with you. BUT not the last part. There's no real connection with the three last names.
BUT the first time I changed my name when FFO and I got 'married', we chose our last name and both changed it to the same thing. That's random...right?
Oh and I hate any spicy food. I am a spice wimp.
