Tagged *7 Things*

Yep, I was tagged by a good pal of mine, Tina of Life in The Lapadula House. So, y'all get to learn more about me - whether you want to or not!

Here are the RULES, because you know these tags always have rules . . .
1. Link your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Seven facts... hmmmmm... guess what - I said I'd do this tag on this blog AND Misty's Words, so y'all have to listen to FOURTEEN things about me! I know, I know, you are running and hiding and hoping I can't find you.

OK - seven things for this blog...
1. Some of my favorite people ever are fictional characters - Yep, movie characters and book characters... I feel like they are my friends. Forrest Gump - yep, he's one of the coolest people EVER!

2. I have a serious issue with people rubbing or scratching their socks within my hearing distance. Doesn't matter if it's Dansko footwear or what. I can't explain it - when rough skin or fingernails catch the fabric of the socks, it's like fingers on a chalkboard to me. Hmmmm, maybe it has something to do with my own hatred for socks. I dunno.

OK, I just enlisted Hubs and Bear's help, and they both quickly (rather too quickly) jumped on the task and started listing things. Hmmmm, two of the most important guys in my life (next to Daddy of course) have NO problem helping me come up with 14 weird or random things about myself. I'm wondering if this should bother me... anyway... Here's some that Hubs volunteered...

3. I have backwards elbows. I think it has to do with my being underweight, but if I put my hands flat on a surface and straighten my arms, they almost bend backwards a.k.a. the wrong way.

4. According to Hubs, I have ESP. I asked him why he said this, and he replied, "Well, duh! You're Radar!" He's referring to the fact that my lawyer-boss calls me "Radar" (in reference to Radar from M.A.S.H.). He started calling me that because I would predict what he was going to say or ask and beat him to it. I think my lawyer-boss calls me "Radar" more than he calls me "Misty". I also have such a strong connection with my dad and Bear (and Tammy too a lot of the time), it's uncanny. It's like we read each other's minds. I could go on and on giving you examples, but I'll spare you.

5. I have an extra (PAINFUL) rib. Actually, this is the whole reason I was finally diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I was trying to figure out what was wrong with this rib, which sticks out under my skin and is very, very painful. It also swells up, and then it REALLY sticks out and I can't even stand clothing touching it. They never did figure out what was wrong with the rib, by the way.

6. I have NO sense of direction (yes, these are still coming from Hubs). I've been told I couldn't find my way out of a paper bag. It's true - I won't deny it. YES, I know where the sun comes up (East) an were it sets (West) (thanks Daddy), but I still don't know where the hell I'm going! I just know where to look for the sun. I learn a way to get from place to place. If I have to change that route, I'm in a complete panic. I just can NOT 'picture' directions and routes in my mind - my mind doesn't work like that, I guess.

7. I'm a MAJOR sap. Not only do I cry at happy or sad stories and shows, but I also get tears in my eyes if a commercial (YES, I said commercial) touches me emotionally in some way. It is for this same reason that you can see me sitting in front of my laptop, reading blogs, and laughing my behind off or having tears streaming down my face. It's just how I am.

OK, now I'm supposed to tag seven people... but, since I'm doing this on TWO blogs, I'm just going to tag the two people I mentioned in this post and then tell the next five people who read this post and the first seven people who read the one on Misty's Words - that YOU'RE IT!
So -
You've been tagged, cuz, well, that's just how I am... hahahaha - you love me and you can't help it!
Everyone else! I'm watching you! You better do the tag!
