I've Been Tagged

It's a couple of weeks late but I finally got around to doing the Tag that my friend Lu challenged me with. Though random should be easy, these things are always difficult to me because I want to make sure I use this opportunity wisely. I know, so much thought makes things un-random... So here we go...

Six random things you may not know about me

1. I am a sheet snob. If you know me at all you know that I hardly buy anything new. I'm thrifty, frugal, cheap, however you define it. If you want to be friends with me, I'll be friends with you. I don't care how much money you have or what you look like. I'm more interested in loyalty, compassion, encouragement.. that sort of thing when it comes to friendship. I think it would be very difficult to call me a snob. Except when it comes to sheets. Over 400 thread count 100% Egyptian cotton. The only way to go...

2. I have the same birthday as my husband

3. I was the Alabama state champion in high jump my senior year in high school.

4. I usually have anxiety when I go into a crowd.

5. I used to have this thing for Kenny Rogers. But now he's tried to reinvent himself which I'm pretty sure involved some plastic surgery and I know involved a leather jacket. An old man trying to act like a young one... Totally unappealing. Dennis Quaid.. He's my new old hot guy. If you're the same age as Dennis Quaid, focus more on the hot part and less on the old part.

6. I always choose an older celebrity that I think is attractive. It's always one that is either graying or is gray. Adam is undoubtedly heading there but that way instead of feeling like he's geting old, he can feel like he's grown into my idea of hot. And it's true. I find gray haired men dignified and attractive. Maybe it's because my dad is gray. I mean I wouldn't call my dad hot but he's most definitely a handsome man.

Okay, there you have it. I would have to say that those were pretty random.

Now, the six people I tag..

1. Julie

2. Ashley

3. Stephanie

4. Becky

5. Sandi

6. Anna

I agree with the sheets and Dennis Quaid. I can't stand for my sheets for feel rough or stiff or bumpy. I've also bought some of those clips that wrap around the corners to hold your sheets on the bed, Thad always managed to pull his side off. As for Dennis Quaid, have you seen the Rookie? Such a good movie, he's so hot for an older man, that smile -wow!

Anna said...

well i know number one first hand and i'm thankful you are that because the bed i slept in at your house was just wonderful. :) the kenny rogers thing is weird, even if it was a past thing. same with the old celebrities. though according to my mom i'm going to marry an older man, so maybe it's not totally out there.

and tagging me? thanks. i'm sure i'm random enough to come up with 6 thing about me. i just found five dollars.

i love you.

Wow! I'm friends with a state champ! I feel special. My mother-in-law buys me yet another set of new expensive sheets EVERY YEAR for Christmas. And I take them back EVERY SINGLE YEAR and use the nearly $100 tp off-set what we spent on Christmas gifts. Which has left us with only one set of sheets our entire marriage for our bed. I wash them and put them back on the same day. So I win... I'm officially cheaper than you. j/k!

Thanks for playing! That is kinda cool that you and Adam have the same bday!

Julie said...

I like the new layout! I'm so glad that that picture turned out. I wish that my bunch wasn't such a mess that day - guess you'll just have to come to TX to take our picture now! hee, hee - just joking! It was really nice to get to spend some time with you guys. It was probably the most enjoyable afternoon of the whole trip. Thanks for being such gracious hosts. Can't wait to come back by and visit again.

Anna said...

i am shocked by #1, but i think that's the perfect place not to compromise! awesome sheets absolutely sleep WAY better than low count ones!
