I'm it!


I'm it!
Apparently, I have been tagged by the writer of this blog which I think is really great. I really admire Amanda Beth's ambition and commitment to style. Spend some time perusing!

I think being tagged means that I share random facts about myself and tag other people so they, too, can share. Here are the actual rules:

The Rules:
Link to your tagger and list the rules.
List 7 random facts about yourself.
Tag 7 people (and make sure you check back and see what they say).
If you're tagged, play along and pass it on!

1) Even though I can't sing, I once landed the lead in the musical "South Pacific." I lived in a very small town at the time so I think I got the part due to demographic default: I was the only one around who might possibly look like Nellie Forbush. After my brief career on stage, I retired permanently from musical theater.

2) By marriage, I am related to David Miller, star of "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes." (He is my cousin's husband.)

3) The colon (:) and semicolon (;) are my favorite punctuation marks; they are definately underrated.

4) I think Danny Elfman is underrated.

5) I considered dropping out of college to see if I could get hired to work on the set of "Wishbone." (I guess it's a good thing I stayed in school.)

6) I'm not a big fan of modern day celebrities. I prefer James Stewart, James Dean, Katharine Hepburn, Audrey Hepburn, Cary Grant, and Grace Kelly.

7) I prefer the old, curmudgeonly Martha Stewart to the post-prison kinder, gentler, friend-to-the-stars she has become.

I tag the following people:
Miriam
Melissa
Kori
Ben
Chris
Laura
OK, peeps. Inspire us!

Danny Elfman is indeed terribly underrated. When my dad dies, I get all his Oingo Boingo records.

I prefer the word "curmudgeonly" to the person called "Martha Stewart."

ps. I gladly accept your tag, but it may be some time before I act like it.

Don't know how I missed your post. I will have to think about this one. I'm worried that I am too predictable to come up with anything worth while. I will have to ask Dan to help me out. Actually his would be pretty entertaining. We missed you for the party weekend. Heard about the trip ... All I can type is WOW!

I'm glad right now to have no blog:)

haha! I love it! And I definitely agree about semicolons although I probably OVER use them! ;)

And gotta adore Jimmy Stewart and the others! :)
