I have been tagged by Kim. This is what the weekend is for.

The Rules Of The Meme:


  • Each player makes a list of eight random facts/habits about themselves.
  • At the end of your list, choose eight people to to tag and list their names.
  • Leave them a comment on each of their websites to let them know that they have been tagged.
  • The people tagged will write a post on their own website about their eight things, post these rules, and tag eight others.
  • etc etc blah blah blah…

1. I hate shopping. Really, I don’t go out much at all, except to visit with friends.

2. I used to be a clean freak, but I’m feeling much better now.

3. I graduated with honours from a database program. Nobody wants a geezer on their IT team it seems.

4. I have the conviction about these things about me that nobody really wants to know them, or cares to read them. My friends are much more interesting than I am.

5. I have sworn that I will not attend another funeral. My mother’s funeral was so traumatic that I will have none of it, ever again. I have told my Grammie this, and she is okay with it, because I come to see her every chance I get.

6. I wish I had a secret Santa to buy me a kickarse digital camera. And I’m totally sick of filling my own darned stocking.

7. You can always tell the days I don’t feel like cooking supper. Those are the days I reward myself for shopping in the first place and bring home a frozen pizza. The pizza I make at home is killer.

8. I can’t wait until the snow is right to make a big, fat snowperson. I will dress it up with scarves and hats, and hope that the kiddies in the neighbourhood will play with me.

I’m not tagging anybody, because I don’t want anyone to feel obligated.

Wow. O.o; I don’t know a single person who doesn’t like to shop. Except me.

I hate coming out with loads of bags and loitering in one aisle trying to figure out what is best to buy. But the feeling of going into a store is awesome for me. (._.)

It’s nice to visit Grammie. Less lonely.

When I was in IT I would have LOVED to work with a psychic, geezer co-worker. I wonder if being psychic would have saved countless hours trouble-shooting, you could get down to business and save all that time.

i despise shopping as well! (i figured i’d mention the shopping since everyone else did. LOL.) me and are best friends :D hehe.

do you know you are very self-deprecating? LOL!!!! (duh, of course you do…you’re the epitome of the rest of us but you dont fluff it over like we do!) WE RUV YOU!!! xoxoxo and we wanna know all about your geeky, psychic, geezer self ;)

not to be depressing, but your #5 struck a chord with me. i have gone to so many funerals in the last few years. all family members. where i come from, the “viewing” the day before the funeral is a big deal. everyone gathers around the body and touches it, talks about how good they look, and all that stuff. i am not trying to be insensitive here…but i am getting to the point where i cant take it anymore. i want to remember the person how they were when they were alive–talking to me, smiling, vibrant. i hate that the first thing i think of about some of my deceased relatives is the strange, tight-lipped, faux-blushed look of their face while they are lying in the casket. it makes me so sad. :(

okay…i just had to get that out…i hope you dont mind!!! (edit it if you want! LOL.)
