Tagged

And not with spray paint:

PSoTD gives me the rules:
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.

Eight random facts?.... hmmm....

1. After mocking squirrels snarkily in my blog a squirrel just today has finally made it from the park to my apricot tree and thrown my almost ripe fruit about. I am thinking violent thoughts involving the high pressure nozzle on the hose....

2. I learned how to swear really well after I got married to my husband who knew all the words...

3. I anthropomorphize the oddest things.

4. I have a hard time putting a period to sentences, the ... is kind of a written wave of the hand...

5. Because I talk with my hands a great deal...

6. I've taken both French and Italian and really can't speak either anymore.

7. I've had cats, dogs, and hamsters as pets but now all we have are fish. You can't pat stupid fish. I've tried.

8. I'm an artist but I'd rather blog right now. I'm too mad to draw or paint.

Ok, I get to pick on other people, right?

Now I get to go tell these guys I've tagged them....

Damned squirrels.

ellroon, I'm honored, but there's something you need to know. I'll occasionally do a meme for a friend, but I never, ever pass them on to anyone else. With that condition, do you still want me to do the meme, or would you like to tag someone else more oriented toward finding the limits of the size of the left blogosphere? :)

ellroon said...

Steve, I totally understand. I never pass on idiot chain letters etc, and this could qualify.

Please play with the meme if you like it, otherwise ignore it. You obviously don't have to send it on.

I will keep your name up if you don't mind. Consider it free advertising.

What am I, chopped liver? :)

/has fit, tears hair, feels guilty...

I'll send you a baked squirrel pie, Mustang Bobby! Would that make things better?

Steve Bates said...

Just be sure you get Bobby's address right; I don't want that baked squirrel pie showing up on MY doorstep...

My eight facts/habits are up on the YDD. Unlike yours, they contain no real surprises. Who knew, ellroon, that you can cuss like a sailor. :)

Get koi, they'll let you pet them when you feed them. They do like a tank that's 4-foot deep and prefer company, but you can pet them.

Oh, yes, the good ones tend to be expensive, but you can pet them...well, most of them...okay, some of them.

ellroon said...

Koi? Those are the really pretty multicolored carp, right?

Are they good to eat, too?

Tagged, you say? I always liked playing tag, so go read my blog.

Really, the squirrel meat should be used as it traditionally has been used, in Hot Pockets...

ellroon said...

That stupid squirrel keeps knocking off unripe apricots and I'll make a large hot pocket pie just for his furry little butt...
