mandarin and seven

There are days when I wish I could just down my sorrows with several dozen of my favorite drinks - Mandarin and Seven. Mandarin because it's Asian. Or maybe because it's fruity. And Seven because it's bubbly. And I can literally drink seven of 'em.

This is one of those days.

But then Dad2Amara or a family member or a friend, like Laurie comes around and reminds you of what's truly important in life. You know. Like meme's.

Seriously though, Laurie tagged me in what I have since learned was her first meme. I'm honored! But now I feel obliged to come up with some spectacular, showstopping list so not to let her down.

The meme: 7 random facts about me

The rules:

  1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.

  2. Share 7 facts about yourself: some random, some weird.

  3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them).

  4. Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment at their blogs.

Laurie added one more rule for me. I could not repeat anything already listed here.

So here goes nothing!

1. I once had a nose ring. And while getting it pierced, I became restless. And my eyes wanted to see all the action. So I opened my eyes and found the largest needle sticking diagonally though my nose. It was one of the scariest things I had ever witnessed.

2. But that was not to be outdone by the time my dentist was pulling out my wisdom teeth and the anesthesia had worn off. I awoke in the middle of the procedure to the soothing hum of my dentist's drill. I. Freaked. Out.

3. In college, I took it with herbal X. And mixed it with alcohol. A lot of alcohol. I was too chicken to use anything illegal (because obviously underage drinking was OK) so I stayed "natural."

4. Ironic I bought any substance considering now I will not even take Tylenol unless I'm on my death bed. I try to stay away from OTC drugs as much as possible.

5. I attended a taping of Jerry Springer that was so raunchy, so risque that it never made air. To this day, I have no idea what the show's topic was. I just remember lesbians and jealous lovers.

6. I'm a bitch. And my personal trainer is too nice. I don't know if this will be a good combination.

7. I hate wearing jeans. My child rearing hips make it nearly impossible to find a pair that fits properly. And denim always feels so heavy on my legs. Hence my love for skirts and black pants. Lots of black pants.

Random enough?

I now tag --
Fog City Mommy because this girl just rocks.
Karmela because no matter how random, she never ceases to amaze.
Hazel because I don't think we've seen her do a meme yet.
Makita because she always has great stories to share.
Todd because a little information wouldn't hurt.
Leslie because maybe this will inspire her to freaking blog again.
Dana because I didn't get to meet her at BlogHer and want to learn as much as I can about her.


  1. I will definitely play! I love meme's. Just don't tell anyone, or I'll get tagged for EVERYTHING. Hehehehe. I'm going to post mine for Wednesday. :)

    You rock girl. I love ya!

  2. #1 and #2 are SO AWESOME.

    I am so excited to get my first ever meme tag!!!!

  3. You rose to the challenge beautifully. I would freak, too if the anesthetic wore off at the dentists. And I own lots of black pants, too.
    Thanks for playing!
