7 Random Things About Me Meme

I've been tagged to do this meme and since I never usually do this stuff I thought I would give this one a try. Seems simple enough, right? :)

1. I am a library addict. Seriously, I go to the library probably once a week and currently have a RIDICULOUS number of books checked out. I'll never get to them all and I don't care...I just like that they are there. Add that to the fact that if I didn't have two little ones I would probably spend hours there just browsing through the books.

2. As well as a book lover, I'm a huge Scooby Doo fan. My son loves this cartoon as well and one of my favorite things to do to relax is sit with him and watch a few Scooby episodes. If only we had the time to do this more often...

3. I'm a lousy cook. And handling raw meat grosses me out. But I am still learning and working on getting better. I think that I need to try and sign up for one of those free recipe to my email type things. I AM good at cooking spaghetti though.

4. I only take showers. I do take a bath once in awhile to relax but then I have to turn the shower on to rinse off and wash my hair. This is going to sound weird but baths make me feel like I'm sitting in dirty water...even though it isn't like I was playing in the mud and then decided to get in the tub. LOL! Like I said, weird, I know.

5. I had never seen the movie A Christmas Story until I met my fiance. Now it is one of my all-time favorite movies and I have to watch it each Christmas when it is on for 24 hours straight. Drives my family crazy since I could watch it over and over.

6. I love when it rains. And rainy days put me in a good mood. I love a good thunderstorm and like to listen to the rain while I am curled up with a good book.

7. And finally, I love to waterski. Seriously, I'm not very good at it but when I'm out on the boat it is one of my favorite things to do. And such a good workout for my arms. I usually can only make it over the wake once or twice without falling but I can get up on the 1st try. Such fun and my son thinks it is funny when I fall.

So there you go, 7 things you probably didn't know about me. I'm supposed to tag a few others so I'll tag Jackie at Literary Escapism, Kara at A World According To Books, and Lisa at Books, Lists, Life. Plus, anyone else who hasn't done this one yet. And I'll be posting a review of Charley's Webb soon. Happy Tuesday!


  1. This is a lovely list. That's funny about waterskiing. It's really is like nothing else, isn't it?

  2. I can't stand A Christmas Story! I'm sorry, but it just makes me CRAZY.

  3. Carolyn Jean- I must agree. I wish I was a bit better at it but hey what can you do.

    Lisa- I can't help but laugh as I think that is how my Mom feels as well. Something about that movie and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation puts me in a festive mood :)

  4. I signed up for one of those recipe things, but I hardly ever read them... I don't like baths either. I was adamant about finding a house with a garden tub since our last house just had a shower, but I've never used it in the 14 months we've lived here. I HAVE to clean the tub before I can get in it (don't like sitting in dirty water either), so it just seems like more work than it is worth.

  5. Trish- OMG! And here I thought I was the only one who felt this way. Yay for you! Have you done this meme yet? If not I would love to see your answers :)

  6. Sam - I've been tagged for this one a few times and just haven't gotten around to it yet. I have done a couple memes similar to this--six random things about me...not sure how it got bumped up to 7 along the way. :P

  7. I completely understand what you mean about the bath thing. I do the exact same thing because of the exact same mind set. lol!

  8. Christmas Story is a classic!! But Christmas Vacation is probably my all-time favorite. It's a Christmas Eve Tradition at our house!

  9. It's been ages since I've thought of Scooby Doo. I used to love that cartoon when I was growing up.

    I'm not a bath person either. And I'm the same way when it comes to rainy days. I love 'em!

  10. Strlady- I'm glad that I'm not the only one. LOL!

    Stephanie- I love Christmas Vacation. Makes me laugh every time :)

    Literary Feline- Scooy Doo is/was a great cartoon. My son and I just checked out the 1st and 2nd season dvd from the library. Love it and it brings back such good memories.

  11. I agree with you on #4 ...lol
    A Christmas Story is one of my fav holiday movies...I love it!


  12. Naida- Glad that you enjoy A Christmas Story too. Such a fun movie :)
