Hi. It's Just Me.

A Game Of Tag

Courtney over at The Everything Soap Blog tagged me for a round of 11 Random Things About Me. I haven't done anything like this since I first started Mercantile Muse back in June of last year, so here we go.

First, the rules I must abide by:
  • Post these rules
  • Post 11 random things about yourself
  • Answer 11 questions that the tagger has created for you in their tag post
  • Create 11 new questions for the people you tag
  • Pick 11 people to tag and go to each person's blog that you chose to let them know they've been tagged
  • No spamming people - just let them know they've been tagged
Now, here's what you've all been wanting to know about me. (Maybe not, but you'll know it regardless if you keep reading this post.)

Before I can tag my 11, I'm supposed to also answer these questions from Courtney.

  1. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be? Back to Italy.
  2. What was your first kiss like? OK, we're talking a long, long time ago people. Not too impressive, a neighborhood boy chased me down and robbed a smooch.
  3. What is your all-time favorite food? Half and half plate of Scallops & Clams. Fried. With tartar sauce. French fries on the side. Oh, and cheese. Oh, and pasta. Oh, and Dad's clam sauce. Oh, and Mom's Tuna Noodle Casserole. OK, that's it. Seriously Courtney, was I only supposed to pick one? Impossible!
  4. What is the funniest sneaky thing you've ever done? In high school we stole a traffic/construction horse, put it in the car, drove it to MacDonald's and put it in the drive thru. Also, we are known to hide the family mascot Maxie Dog in anyplace we can think of, including my parents bed and the fireplace.
  5. What do you hate doing more than anything else? Bookwork or confronting people. 
  6. Who do you like talking to the most? The gar man.
  7. What is your biggest regret? I'm not really a believer in regrets, they get you nowhere.
  8. What joke do you remember off the top of your head? What's the difference between a 'lady of the evening', a mistress and a wife? The lady of the evening says 'was it worth your money?', the mistress says 'was it as good for you as it was for me', and the wife says 'beige. I think I'll paint the ceiling beige.'
  9. What's the scariest story you've ever heard? Hhhhhhmmmm, I don't know about story, but I had a hard time watching the program Gar had on last night about the man who walked a tightrope between the World Trade Center towers and also had a hard time watching the 60 minutes special on the guy who climbs up cliffs free form, completely unattached. Kind of freaks me out. I watched both, but my stomach does serious flips considering what these people are doing. However, I don't have a problem going up to the top of the Empire State.
  10. Who makes you mad more often than anyone else? Probably myself.
  11. If you had a million dollars, what's the first thing you would buy? First thing I would 'do' is pay off the debt of everyone I love. After that I'd throw one helluva party to remember. Complete with dancing and singing of course.
Here's my 11. Play along if you'd like. If not, no worries. It's just for fun.

And here's my questions for those who play along:

1. What's the name of your first pet, if you had one?
2. What's your favorite place that you have lived?
3. Comedy or Drama?
4. What's your favorite childhood memory?
5. Rollercoasters? Yes or no?
6. What size shoe do you wear?
7. What's your favorite word?
8. Did you participate in any activity in school?
9. What was your favorite subject in school?
10. What are your top three movies of all time?
11. What's the most recent book you read that you couldn't put down?

Feel free to post a random thing about yourself in the comments! Just a fun way to get to know each other better.

Freeform Friday

It's another crazy, warm day here. I will get over to the field with the dog for sure at the end of the day. Seriously, it's high 40s!!!

Here's a something to get your feet moving. Gar and I always hit the dance floor to this one. We saw the Mavericks yearsago  and they were a ton of fun....2,3,4.  Click here if you're reading by email.

Any plans for the weekend? We're supposed to get a little snow in the morning (I know, that's New England for you), so probably a 'little' shoveling. I'd also love to get to the Winter Farmer's Market tomorrow, but will have to see how the day shakes out.  Whatever you do, enjoy.
