Seven Things Meme

Joyce at tallgrassworship has tagged me for a meme. At least this one doesn't expect me to make something. I'm much too chicken to sign up for those.

Here are the rules:

Link to your tagger and list these rules on your blog.

Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog - some random, some weird.

Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blog

Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Here goes:
1. My first career was as an archaeologist. It was great fun: I traveled all around the state, sleeping in crummy motels, eating bad food but having the opportunity to work with wonderful people and be outside all day playing in the dirt- and get paid for it!

2. I HATE malted milk balls. I never thought I would say that about anything that is covered with chocolate, but there it is. I think it's a texture thing. It's like eating chocolate covered chalk. The only other things I don't eat are hot dogs or bologna. Again, a texture thing- they're too slimy. Other than those 3 things- I'm game for just about anything.

3. My college roommate introduced my husband and I. But first, she warned me about what a horrible person he was.

4. I have been to 49 out of 50 states. Somehow, I have always managed to miss Louisiana. I'm going to have to make a point of going there sometime.

5. I  got lost in the woods with the pastor's son when we were 7 or 8.  We were out hunting mushrooms and got separated from the adults.  We eventually found our way back to civilization by following the sound of cows mooing.  I knew that one our our neighbors had cows and it would lead us close to home. 

6. I have 3 out of 4 of my wisdom teeth (the other was missing). See, I knew I had a big mouth!!

7. Ok, I mentioned this one on Joyce's site. But, I sort and eat my M&M's (and anything else small and colorful) by color before I eat them. And I always eat the colors in the same order. Yellow is always first and red or purple (depending on the candy) is last. I've done this since I was little.

And now, on to the tags.  I realize that not everyone likes participating in memes.  If you don't want to play along, I'm not offended. So now, in no particular order, I tag
Hickchick at A Small Life
LisaZ at The Zahn Zone


  1. Okay, Judy. I'll play along! And now I have some new links to check from your list. Thanks.

  2. I'll play along. I have to think on this!

  3. That's pretty funny that you were"warned" and still went out with him! Were you drawn to the "bad boy"?

  4. We have the first kind of in common: I have a degree in anthropology.

    I also have my wisdom teeth (and have never had any problems with them!)

    I finished mine tonight!

  5. Thanks Judy. I promise I will do this. It seems like fun!
    PS: I eat my M&M's the same way only first is the blue, then red, brown, orange, yellow & green. I leave my favorite for last!

  6. I'm in, thanks for the tag - it'll be fun to share. Being an archeologist, wow. One of those careers I never thought that I'd never know someone really in :-) Too funny about the cow story!

  7. Thanks for playing along. No, Joyce, it wasn't the bad boy (much). V has a slightly warped sense of humor and a way with words. My old roomy was one of those people who fed him straight lines he couldn't resist and it frustrated her to no end.
    And I'm glad to know that I'm not the only M&M sorter out there.


Glad you stopped in. I would love to hear from you.
