TagNation - 7 Random Things

The fabulous Mr. Eaton over at Country Don't Mean Dumb tagged me to write 7 Randon Things About Myself. These are the rules:

1. Link to the person’s blog who tagged you.

2. Post these rules on your blog.

3. List seven random and/or weird facts about yourself.

4. Tag seven random [?] people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.

5. Let each person know that they have been tagged by posting a comment on their blog.

And so, without further ado, here are my seven random things:

1. In 1991, I won a trip to Rio de Janeiro. I took my first cousin, Carla, who is the same age as me. While there, I had an affair with a hot Italian guy who couldn't speak a word of English. It was perfect.

2. I would find it difficult to live without my morning coffee and cigarette "meditation." Organic African coffee, one sugar and real 1/2 and 1/2. American Spirit menthol.

3. I won an award from the Optimist Club when I was in 7th Grade for writing an essay titled "Why I Love America" or something dorky like that. In it, I blasted Mr. Nixon.

4. I am a cynical romantic.

5. I think cats are the coolest critters on the planet.

6. I am a Scorpio sun, Capricorn moon, Libra rising mumble-jumble of contradictions, paradoxes, inconsistencies, and abnormalities that add up to one crazy-ass, but mostly fun woman.

7. I'm doing "undercover" work for Eric Frances at Planet Waves.

I feel it only fair to admit that I perjured the term "TagNation" from Mr. Eaton. Here are my seven taggees (that one's mine):

1. Olivia

2. Sherri

3. Bruce

4. Kickin Tina

5. Kelly

6. Carla

7. And saving the best for last - Miss Annie

Very cool, Angela.

We nod to the west and toss you some nicotiana rustica and a new coffee grinder. :)

Angela said...

Love you turtlegirl. :)

John, we nod back and send you loads of love from Montana.

thank you for the tag. i will share the love. and kudos for sharing your journey, too. my own experience tells me that blogville is journal in 3D. my online homegroup gives me as much, if not more sustenance, as the room in which i found hope.

Bruce said...

“Listening is a magnetic and strange thing, a creative force. The friends who listen to us are the ones we move toward. When we are listened to, it creates us, makes us unfold and expand.”

This quote reminded me of you Angela.

What a great welcome home to get me back into blogging juice. I'll be musing it as I unpack, and be back atya over at my house later! Now I gotta go back and read your 7 randoms.

Angela said...


Yeah, well, I am listening, baby.


Looking forward to your 7.


I have that essay somewhere. My mom had it laminated and gave it to me. Can you believe it? What a very cool mom.
