More weird things about me??

I have been tagged again to tell you 7 weird or random things about me! This time by Betty at Betty's This and That. I think this is about the third time I've done this meme but I just keep coming up with more weirdness, not to mention random-ness!! Lots of that going on with me. Anyway, ya gotta have rules in every game...right? Unless, of course, you make up your own game with no rules! I've been know to do that too! But, since this wasn't my game, I'm going to play nice. So here's the rules:

1. Once you are tagged, link back to the person who tagged you.
2. Post THE RULES on your blog.
3. Post 7 weird or random facts about yourself on your blog.
4. Tag 7 people and link to them.
5. Comment on their blog to let them know they have been tagged.


Ok, I did cheat a little..I copied Betty's rules from her page! :o) Here again is some of my weirdness:

1. I have always had strong nails and could grow them easily but I never liked long nails!


2. I always peel my apples when I eat them. I can't stand to bite into an apple peel. It makes me shiver and get chills. Sorta like the fingernails scraping on a chalkboard, which by the way never bothered me at all!

3. I am the youngest of 6 children. My next youngest sister is 6 years older than me. I grew up with my nieces and nephews who felt more like my siblings.


4. I love to eat cake batter. I always loved to "sop the bowl" when my mother made a cake but I could never get enough of the batter. Dave and I once made a chocolate cake batter and ate almost all of it. We were sick!

5. I like for people to look me in the eye when they talk to me. I don't trust people who don't! I feel they have something to hide!


6. I can write backwards about as well as I can write forward. I don't know what this skill will profit me but I have it! I do it to entertain the grandkids. I write something and tell them it's a secret code. They have to have a mirror to read it! I guess I do use this skill...to entertain!!

7. Now that I'm older, I hate getting dressed up to go out. If I could I'd wear my PJ's 24-7. I'm all about comfort!


Ok, that's it! Everything else about me gets even stranger so you better not ask for more! I'm just kiddin'. If ya'll really want to know I'll tell ya!

Now for the fun part...I get to tag 7 people. I'll tag some of my new bloggy friends, but if any of you have been tagged before you don't have to play. But, hey, I know I can't be the only one that can list 21 weird things about themselves and still think of more, can I??

I tag:

Lisa at A Place to Land

Jo at Bits and Pieces

Lynne at Lynne's Little Corner of the World

Claudia at Mockingbird Hill Cottage

Ruth at Whispering Oaks Cottage

Mike at Rambling Stuff

Adrienne at With A Grateful Heart

Most all of these new but already dear friends showed up on my blog when my little Josie was sick to tell me they were praying for her. I had never met them before but they were praying for my baby. How that touched my heart! Claudia is a new blogger in our community and such a sweet person. I just met Jo who lives on a mountain..I like that about her! :o) Please go over and visit each one of them...oh, and don't forget to tell them Hope sent you!

Most of you already know my sweet southern belle friend, Betty, but if you haven't met her you don't know what you're missing. Thank you, Betty for asking me to participate.

Aren't you a weird one? *giggle* I am jealous of your nails. Mine are pathetic and always have been. Have a great week - Jen

Adrienne said...

Thanks for tagging me, Hope. How did you know that there are lots of weird or random things about me that you don't know? I'll get my list together and posted soon. I enjoyed your list. It's always fun to learn more about you. ~Adrienne~

You may be weird, but oh, so adorable:) BTW, I did the same thing with cake batter once, or maybe twice! LOL.

Happy Monday!

Hey Hope:
Thanks for your comment. I have a first cousin who’s wife name Hope, I think her grandmother went through the depression and had basically the same reason for the name,. … “Hope for the future”
Anyway, what did you think of Jo’s blog? I just wish I had her ‘gift –of-gab’, and her word arranging abilities.
Here’s hoping you and yours have a great day….
I really enjoyed your visit, come back anytime…. JD
PS- I love your "Old House"

Brenda said...

Nice things to know about you. We can't bake together... we would fight over the bowl lol.
I am the same way about being talking with me.Good to see you up and going early this morning!

Mike Golch said...

Hope I have yet to figure how to tag someone.There is still i have a lot to learn on how to do things.I know by my comments and mj own blog that I do come across as knowing what I'm doing,well Im still learning.

Peggy said...

I like having weird friends.... just kidding,love your list though.

Mike Golch said...

Hope I tried and susceeded in playing tag.I tagged 7 people on my site,learned hoe to do it by trial and error.as I have learned just about every thing that I know.Blkessings.

Tammy said...

I for one think this meme should be renamed to 7 unique things about you...because different does not have to be weird...
*smile*

Hope you are having an awesome day!

Holly (Nickname) said...

Thanks for tagging me, Hope...I am not sure how to do this, so if you could explain it to this pathetic, un-experienced blogging newbie, I would really appreciate it...it looks like so much fun! :)

bj said...

Ha ha...I loved reading your 7 facts...especially the writing backwards. That's amazing....
You asked about the red of my hutch...it is from Lowe's Home Improvement...I am not sure of the name of the paint....but it is COLONIAL RED. I used the spray paint on my hutch but it also comes in the wall paint in a can. I hope you have a Lowe's Home Improvement store there. If not, bet you can google it and order....
Hope this helps.
I painted my lower kitchen cabinets in just about the same red but it is Olympic brand in ROYAL RED. It is the Biltmore Estate Collection..wooo woo!! :)
hugs, bj

jennifer said...

Glad you came by today...you are a bright spot in my day!! Jennifer

Betty said...

Okay, here I go, Hope.

For starters, I have weak nails and would love to have long, strong nails. I'm jealous of your strong nails.

I, too, am the youngest of 6 children. The next to the youngest is my sister, Rachel, who is 7 years older than me. I have a niece who is only 6 years younger than me, and she seems like a sister.

I would gladly look you in the eye when we talk if only I could meet you in person. I'm like you in that I don't trust anyone who can't look me in the eye.

Just another thing or two we have in common. Are you sure we're not kin? LOL

Guess you saw I never got around to posting today. Just been gone most of the day and now I'm tired and don't feel like doing it.

Hi Hope, I have the wii back from the grandkids and Kelly hooked me up to the key board! I am out visiting my friends!! I am so ready to have the laptop back!!!!! I have a new post so come on over and see what a wild weekend I have had for sure! Every thing is fine now!! Love and Hugs Grams

Karla said...

Love the randomness... and yes, even the weirdness. You know, I just had to see if I could write backwards! I can... but it's not easy. Guess that's just not one of my talents.

Lisa said...

Hope
Thanks for tagging me. I enjoyed ready your meme.I think it is neat that you write backwards. I posted the meme on my blog.Take Care. Lisa

Karen H. said...

Good Morning Hope,
You have any coffee ready for us? I am feeling some better this morning and I put up a new post and am out trying to catch up with my visiting once again. I enjoyed reading your Meme. Your not weird, and I'm like Tammy, it should be renamed to Unique. I used to bite my nails and I let them grow out now. They are soft when they start growing out and I usually end up clipping them off. I used to go and have my nails done with the Porcelain type nails about a year ago. I loved them. I can't afford it now tho. That is so cool you can write backwards. You will have to show us sometime on one of your post's. I bet the Grandkids really enjoy it. I, too, think when people don't look me in the eye while talking have something to hide. Now, if I don't feel good, I may not look someone in the eye like I would normally do. I hate getting dressed up as well. Once in a great while if me and my DH go out together someplace special, I will dress up a bit. I don't have anything fancy to wear really. I'm just a plain Jane type of person and I have to be comfy when I do dress up. It has to have elastic in the waste or I won't wear it. LOL. Gotta have room to breathe and expand. LOL. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

Hi Hope,

I enjoyed your "weird" list. Not weird at all. Writing backwards is a talent! I can't do it.

I slapped one guy, not hard, and told him that I was down here,,,lol I can't write backwords but I have put the bowl on my head and stuck my tongue out and spin the bowl.... Hey, I'm one for comfort too.........
You have a great day...
