So apparently I've been "meme'd" per Michelle. Have no idea what "meme" means, BUT - here are the rules:

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Now, where do I start on all the utterly fascinating things about myself??? :) :)

1. I am sort of a fruit-aholic. If I am planning a trip somewhere where I don't know for sure about the availability of fresh fruit, I can develop a mild/moderate panic. I often bring fruit along with me when I travel, or buy it during the trip.

2. I used to want to have 12 children. This was after reading "Cheaper By the Dozen" approximately 4 billion times. I have since changed my mind. :)

3. I ADORE reading. It is another "-aholic" in my life. Mostly fiction. I don't mind library fines, either. I sort of happily think of the new books they will buy. This is particularly brainless of me, I know, but I can't help it.

4. When I was little, I LONGED to be able to have both glasses AND braces one day. The cry of my heart was heard and I had both. What a weirdo was I. And now I cannot even EXPRESS the JOY and DELIGHT of having to mess with contacts/glasses or pad around blindly, and the extreme, traumatic, brain jarring pain caused by trying to reinsert my old retainers over teeth that have moved. I was such a smart child.

My name could have been Melinda Joy.

I HATE volleyball. It hurts my spindly little wuss arms so much. Plus I am SUPER bad at it. I am a very happy sideline watcher person.

7. I can stare at a football game on TV for several extended hours at a time, and at the end of that time not be able to tell you what the score is, what teams are playing, or even what colors they are wearing. I will likely, however, be able to tell you something about the commercials.

I had another "tag" like this over a year ago. Here are other weird things about me if you are so inclined.

And now I tag...Candice, Joycie, Elvida, Melissa, and Isaiah (if he still reads my blog.) And anyone else who feels so inclined. :)

It was so nice to actually meet you at conference! I've had such fun looking through your recent posts. I'm sure you'll be hearing more from me. :)
