TAGGED!

I have been tagged to share eight random facts about myself. This particular tag comes from my brother, Evan. I am then to tag 8 others to do the same. I read Evan’s list and got to #8---I have NO IDEA what it means, so my random facts will be on the less intelligent side.

Here are the rules:

1. Players start with 8 random facts about themselves.
2. Those who are tagged should post these rules and their eight random facts.
3. Players should tag eight other people and notify them they have been tagged.

Here are the random facts:

  1. I am a TV junkie—I love it all, reality shows, mysteries, detective stories even a Lifetime movie or two (not a great fact for a teacher ‘cause I don’t like Discovery or any of those learnin’ channels).
  2. I speed—too much. I don’t condone it for anyone else, but it is confession time.
  3. I have a crush on James Spader (of Boston Legal – not sure why – he’s smart and witty I guess).
  4. I despise “No Child Left Behind”. It has created an educational community more concerned with testing than with children. Someday soon we will all realize how ridiculous it is to believe EVERYONE learns EVERYTHING the exact same way in the exact same time frame. Wonder if the President will “get it” then?
  5. I force myself to eat anything green because I know I should.
  6. I have the attention span of a mite. I know this is a well known fact, but the game said “random” so….I included it.
  7. I hate the outside of my house, but LOVE the inside.
  8. I went on the Adkins Diet in high school with a friend of mine. We ate pork rinds by the bagful—seems soooo---yucky now.

So for my tag---I tag the following:

Trish, Andrea, Tanja, Pentha, Shelly, Chad, Joy and Fred

I'm from Texas....and my son is entering the third grade and about to have to endure the TAKS test....he'll do fine but they will spend the entire year teaching the kids how to take it....

Pork rinds....eeewwahh...yuck...can't even imagine...

reality shows...I like Survivor and the Bachelor...which goes against everything I believe about love and marriage...but it is so interesting to watch...

Well, I have an exception with 2 (so called) facts on this list!

#5 - "I force myself..." Whatever! You have never eaten anything green when I have been around.

#6 - Ah, no! A mite is a stubborn little insect that knaws on one particular section until it is swatted. No, you have the attention span of a gnat. Buzzing around endlessly and for some reason, you can never swat 'em.

Your brother, Marc

Marsha,

Tonight I'm catching up with reading my friends' blogs and I suddenly see I'm tagged to play this game!
Sorry for not doing this sooner, it will take me a day to come up with answers!

Thanks,
Tanja

Ok, I replied to being tagged. It's on my blog!

Consider it a late birthday present from the world's worst friend. ;-)

It took a while, but I've finally done my duty.
