Another Day, another Meme

Thanks for the comments on yesterday's post - my little guy does indeed have an ear infection. That stuff happens when you are too busy to BLOW YOUR NOSE; when you suck it all back it has to go somewhere right? Yuck! A nasty lesson for him; the good news is that the antibiotics are working already.

I got out of bed this morning and looked in the mirror, and the hair of Jon Bon Jovi stared right back at me. Which, if I were a guy in my 40s wouldn’t be such a bad thing. But I'm not, not even a guy. So I need a haircut. I don’t know what it is about my hair that ends up looking like male celebrity – the last likeness I had was Keith Urban.

Seven Weird/random things about Me, Myself and Moi:

So on that note, what other things do you just have to know about me? I’ve done the 8 random things memes once; twice,THREE times now, so you know I'm a lady. So seven's got to be easier right? I was tagged by my new blog buddy Sandy at momisodes and there is some even more trivial stuff that you just NEED to know...

1. I can’t stand seeing holes in socks. Especially at the toe. Makes me shudder.

2. I’m very finicky about my bedsheets. If they aren’t tucked in the proper way, or the blanket is flipped upside-down, I get freaky. I’ve been known to wake up my husband if he’s already nestled in, fast asleep. Terrible, I know. I can’t sleep unless the sheets are just so. Sort of like Monica on Friends. Except she’s a fictional character.

3. I have very eclectic musical taste. I just bought Rihanna’s new album and am really enjoying Kanye West’s new single “Stronger”. But my collection ranges from Glenn Gould’s Goldberg Variations, Debussy; to the jazz of Sarah Vaughan, Oscar Peterson, Diana Krall, Norah Jones; to the grunge of Soundgarden, Pearl Jam and Nirvana; rock classics like Rush, David Bowie and Iggy Pop, U2, REM, , Lenny Kravitz; ambient music such as Air; British invasion from the Beatles, Duran Duran, the Cure, the Cranberries, Suede, Verve, Coldplay; pseudo punk Green Day ; country rock of Blue Rodeo, Jim Cuddy; pop such as John Mayer, Beck, modern indie acts like Emily Haines of Metric, Feist. I haven’t even touched on Raffi yet. Gawd, I like music. With the exception of really explicit hip hop and pure country, it’s a free for all.

4. I love, love, love junk food as in potato chips and ice cream. But I think most of you already knew that from my foodie posts.

5. I love to write. I actually represented my school in a regional creative writing contest when I was in Grade 6. Unfortunately it was all downhill after that. I also learned in business school that you should keep your sentences short. Ten words is the ideal length. Hah, good luck keeping me to that rule! But thanks for being here to indulge my writing hobby.

6. I am a very impatient driver. I used to tailgate all the time. Bad me. I've gotten a lot better with that now especially since I had kids (always at least two car lengths in between... breathe...). But unfortunately my kids have learned a few choice words from the backseat of the van. Bad mommy.

7. I love coffee. A bit too much. But I have to have a couple cups in the morning, and at least one in the afternoon. And my latest guilty pleasure to go with it… Hazelnut flavoured Coffee Mate Creamer. I just bought a 1 litre bottle of the stuff – that’s right, a whole milk carton’s worth!

And that’s it! Tagging is tough, I think this one's been around a while too. But I’ll start with the following new blog buddies, as I'm so, so nosy… Badness Jones; Melissa; Gina , Anna, Rimarama, Jocelyn, GMcountrymama. And anyone else who wants to play. If you've already done it no worries. But it's great blogging filler for NaBloMe.

Be sure to let me know as I love to know more about y’all too!

Both your comments came through :) I'm a coffee-holic too. Though this time of year I'm addicted to the eggnog and pumpkin spice flavored creamers. For the record...I like your Bon Jovi Hair.

I've been known to wake Bob so that I could fix the sheets too. I hate messed up sheets.

Oooo, good post! My turn, huh, alright, I'l see what I can pull out of my hat:)

Curiosity.Killer said...

Hope the little guy recovers soon.

Girl! We should hang out when I'm in the same city in the future - we'll listen to Glenn Gould to Feist, and eat ice-cream and gorge on potato chips.

Then we'll go and work out like maniacs the next day. LOL

Badness Jones said...

so I'm doing the 7 things meme 2 days in a row? Well, it is NaBloPoHo (great term btw) and I'm running out of things to say...ok, I'll see what I can do...

Princess Extraordinaire said...

So cool to learn more about you!

Rimarama said...

I am totally with you on the bed sheets. I also cannot go to sleep in an unmade bed; I'll make it at 10:59 and go to bed at 11:00 pm, if necessary.

Thanks for the tag! I did this one kind of recently, so I might save it for a rainy day ;)

Too funny! I love your eclectic musical taste. :) Also a big fan of the junk food, sadly.

I knew I liked you, "Hazelnut flavoured Coffee Mate Creamer" - I too love this stuff!!!! I can't drink my coffee anymore without it - and I like a lot of the other flavors as well. The one they have out right now for Thanksgiving (pumpkin something) - is really good. Fun list of things about you - take care and see you soon. Kellan

Thanks so much for playing!!! I loved reading more about you :)

#1- ditto...even if it's just the beginning of a hole forming

#3- I'm with you,.."A.B.C"- anything but country.

#4- Those 2 were my diet for many years. Sometimes together.

#7- yummmm, caffeine...must have it.

Jocelyn said...

Okay, your affection for Rush cements it: I like you lots, my dear Tom Sawyer.

Oh, and many of us peaked in 6th grade. I'm still getting over it.

I'll see if I can't muster up a response to your tag...although I notoriously can take months...

slouching mom said...

Numbers six and seven...I SO hear you. :)

I love HAZELNUT Coffee Mate! I don't drink coffee much anymore, but back when I did, I always had the Hazelnut Coffee Mate in the fridge at work, with my name on it, in BIG letters. MINE! STAY BACK! IT's MINE!
