Randoms And Tags

There are some "About Me" posts making their way through blog world, and I was tagged I few times for them! I love these things. Thanks to Katie, Julie, Amanda, Natalie, Dove Of Snow, and Chloe for tagging me!

I was also given a few awards in the last couple of months, and I never passed them on. So I'm going to do that now as well! Thank you to Nicole for the Blog On Fire Award, thank you to Jamie for the Versatile Blogger award, and thank you to MSDeyle for the Tell Me about Yourself blog award! I really do feel honored when I get these, even if I am terrible at passing them on.

So the awards all require telling random things about myself, as does the "About Me" tag, so I'm just going to combine the two. And everyone I tag at the end - I'm tagging you for the "About Me" post and giving you an award, so just pick your favorite of the three awards listed! I'll include the awards at the bottom, so just click on the award you choose and you should be able to save it to your computer.

Okay, here we go.

1. I have naturally curly hair. I think alot of you may not realize that because I usually end up straightening it. It's just easier to blow dry and straighten it most days, as opposed to waiting for it to dry and then fixing all the wayward curls (and there are alot of them). I used to hate my curly hair when I was a teenager, but somewhere along the way I just decided to go with it, and I did for a long time.

2. I really love hymns. Hymns have such rich lyrics. I like it when new artists record old hymns, as long as they don't change them too much.

3. I need to have trees. I really don't think I could be happy living anywhere where there aren't trees. Trees just make me feel safer.

4. I have a recurring nightmare where my teeth fall out of my mouth, and I quickly rush to my dentist while trying to put them back in their sockets. And I actually have a weird feeling of pain in my dream too - I always wake up and touch my teeth to make sure they are still there.

5. I'd much prefer a family comedy movie over a depressing chick flick any day. But there are also such things as chick flick comedies, and I love those (like You Again - I like that movie).

6. I've always liked tropical fruit flavors better than regular fruit flavors. Example: tropical flavored Skittles. But it's so hard to find those anymore.

7. I love the peppermint Hershey's kisses that come out at Christmas time. And I'm slightly depressed that my last bag of them is finally empty. Now I have to wait another ten months before I can have them again.

8. I love Valentine's Day. I suppose I can understand why some people hate it, but I think they are focusing on the wrong kind of love if they can't find any love to be happy about on Valentine's Day. The love of your family, friends, and God's love for us are most definitely worth celebrating.

9. When I was little, I used to be fascinated with rocks. I would spend my money on the polished rocks at gift stores, and stop and pick up pretty rocks from the ground. I even had a little rock handbook that taught about different kinds of rocks.

10. Somewhere along the way my interest switched from geology to biology. I would love to be a microbiologist.

11. When I was in grade school, my brother and sister and I used to wake up early so we could watch Alvin and the Chipmunks before we started our schoolwork. Whatever happened to those good old cartoons? I think alot of the cartoons today are dumb and inappropriate, and the animation stinks.

Okay, those are my random things! For the "About Me" tag I'm also supposed to answer the eleven questions that the tagger posed to me, but since I was tagged five six times that would make this post far too long, so I'm going to answer the questions in separate posts over the next few weeks. And yes, I really am going to answer 66 questions, so if you don't feel like you know enough about me, just stick around.

And here are my questions for the "tagg-ees".

1. If you could only listen to one album for the rest of your life, what would it be?
2. If you were a teacher, what subject would you teach?
3. What is your favorite verse and/or quote?
4. Why did you start blogging?
5. What is one book you think everyone should read (besides the Bible, because that's a given)?
6. Favorite drink to get at Starbucks?
7. Would you rather it snow or rain?
8. Advice that your mom gave you that you never forgot?
9. Most read website or blog (besides mine, of course . . . *wink, wink*)?
10. One thing you would tell your 13 year old self (got this idea from Jessica)?
11. What do you hope people will say about you after you die?

And I tag. . . alot of people, since I was tagged a few times. Trying to tag some of my newer followers, some people who haven't already been tagged, and some people who I *think* will play along! Let me know if you do, because I'd love to read your answers to my questions.

So exciting! I loved reading your random facts - I have never see the movie You Again, but it looks funny! I will have to give your questions some thought - I have been thinking about doing a "more about me" post, but just have not gotten it together. Now I have extra motivation :) Thanks for tagging me!

Fun facts! I love those peppermint Hershey kisses too! I'd be embarrassed to admit how fast I ate a bag :)

Melissa said...

I loved reading this! I want to see the curly hair! Mine is naturally wavy. And by wavy, i mean what i call "fluffy". Not that cute. HA!

Do you like Crystal Lewis' version of hymns? Look her up. Crystal Lewis It Is Well. Oh my goodness. I love her. She does change them up but not in a bad way!

I love trees. :)
