A Poem, A Meme and Some Folks

There once was a woman named MamaLee, she was so nice and tagged lil ole me.
Following along came Dorky Dad, and he tagged me the same, but I didn't get mad.
A meme you see really makes me HAWT.
It gives me something to write when I haven't a thought.
Read on if you wish.
It's 10 things about me.
Cause I'm so damned interesting as I'm sure you will see.
And when you do, will you please figure out a a way to convince me?

It's called the Chinese Freeze Tag, though as my man Dorky Dad said "I don't think it's Chinese and I'm pretty sure there's nothing frozen about it". I am to write 10 things about myself, and then tag 10 people to do the same.

1. I love the sound of driving over gravel. It reminds me of so many good times...driving through the parking lot at the fireman's carnival, going to a baseball game, to an outdoor concert, catching a fireworks show.

2. Fireworks make me so happy. I get so excited whenever I see firework shows. I greet them with childlike wonder and consider them terribly romantic. I can't help but clap when they're over.

3. Despite the fact that he's short, I've had a thing for Matt Damon for a long time...until I saw The Departed. Now? Oh I'm all about Leo.

4. The beach is my favorite place in the world. Doesn't matter the season, doesn't really matter which one. I feel so free at the beach.

5. Bookstores make me feel hopeful. When I see all those books I know that if there is nothing else I still have all of them to read.

6. I used to just want a different nose and straighter fingers, then I realized that my neck was too short. I'd love to have perfect feet. I'd also like a bit higher forehead and now...I'd love it if my boobs were fuller and perkier. Since most of this cannot be corrected with surgery I guess I just have to accept what I look like.

7. Some days I feel like I'm in a holding pattern waiting for something to change. I know I need to be the one to make a change, but man I'm tired.

8. For the longest time penises sort of scared me. I didn't grow up around too many. Now I'm surrounded by them. I sort of think sex would be different for a girl if she grew up with brothers. Penises are a lot less intimidating when the first ones you see are so small.

9. I love the fact that I grew up in a house where we learned to talk about our bodies matter of factly. I was never afraid to go to my mom with questions. That also says a lot about what an incredible woman she is.

10. I want to learn how to surf and to swim with dolphins someday.

There you go. Ten facts about me. Crap I think I even bored myself. Shoot I need to get the blogging bug back. Any suggestions?

So who's going to get tagged? Let's go with Crouton Boy, Canape, Mitch McDad, Karrie, the Queen of Mayhem, QueenieB, Southern Fried Mom, Kelly, Lawyer Mama and MommaK.

3. Leo's definitely gotten better with age, but something still bugs me about him.

8. I've never thought about it but because I blushed and giggled when I read the word penises, I'm probably with you too. Or maybe I have an arrested maturity problem. hmmmmmm

QueenieB said...

I have not forgotten you Mamma! Just a busy week. So much to post, so little time....

karrie said...

There was a really odd, horny dolphin at a Club Med I visited in Turks & Caicos. He kind of combines the whole penis fear and swimming with dolphins thing for you.

karrie said...

To clarify, this dolphin hung out at the resort, and tried to get frisky with the laideez.

Lawyer Mama said...

Gah. You got me! Love hearing about the gravel though. That's definitely one I haven't heard before.

Mrs. Chicky just tagged me with this one too, so I'm going to cheat & modify it for Mother's Day!

Oh, The Joys said...

The day I went out to swim with the dolphins they weren't in the mood. :(

Gunfighter said...

"Penises are a lot less intimidating when the first ones you see are so small."

(cue Captain Kirk voice): Must. Resist. Penis. Jokes!

We live just a couple blocks from a promenade overlooking Manhattan and the East River. On July 4 we can walk down the street and get an unobstructed view of the big New York fireworks show. Better yet, they often test the fireworks there, so we sometimes get them on random nights. It's AWESOME.

And how much do I suck for just now realizing you tagged me?
