tag'd, bag'd and ungag'd

Sueeeus and Joke tagged me. And I was ready to come out of bloggy hibernation, anyway.


1. What do you hope to accomplish with your blog?
Not much, obviously. It's a private blog.

2. Are you a spiritual person?
I'm not religious. At All. I am spiritual.

3. If you were stranded on a deserted island, what three things would you want to have with you?
A shitload of potable water, a ton of seeds and a machete.

4. What’s your favorite childhood memory?
A magical summer at our Minnesota lake house in 1967.

5. Are these your first (tagging) memes?

Here are the rules according to whomever likes to make up rules: • Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about him/herself. • People who are tagged need to write in their own blog about their eight things and post these rules. • At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names. • Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

1. I totally don't understand why people get off on porn. Maybe I haven't seen the right stuff?

2. I dropped out of high school and went on to earn six figures by the time I was 38. I also have been so broke at other times, I lived on ramen noodles and developed a love for dandelion greens until my garden came in.

3. I have never hitch-hiked, even when I was car-less for 3 years.

4. I once dated 3 men at the same time. Two of them accidently met at my house while waiting for me to get home (from a trip with the 3rd fellow) and they became life partners (years later, but still...!) I was essentially dumped by all 3 within the same 48 hours.

5. I know if you want something badly enough, and put some energy into positive thought about it, you will get it.

6. The only foods I hate are organ meats and rutabegas. Fry it or cover it with chocolate, and I'll eat it.

7. I only taste on the exhale. Inhale and taste? Not happening for me.

8. I have not had a drink since 1990. I will take a congratulatory sip of champagne at family weddings, but that's it.

I tag anyone who eventually reads this. Please let me know if you decide to participate. Thanks!

#4 is another of the summer of 1977 stories. Before AIDS, before things got So Scary. I'm glad I got to live during that time. #2 is due to selling a business and starting in real estate when all my friends decided to do their move-up purchases. I even sold a house I was going to list for sale to a stranger on a flight to Chicago! He still owns the house - it was truly perfect for him. The home was owned by a friend who went on to purchase 4 more homes after that - sadly, the last 2 in their divorce :o(
I stopped active involvement in real estate in 2000. But I went through 3 boom and bust cycles with my clients.
