Seven for Saturday

I've been tagged by (new mom with a cute squishy baby) GreenEggsNHam.

The rules are:
  1. Link to the person who tagged you.
  2. Share 7 random and/or weird facts about you.
  3. Tag 7 random people at the end, and include links to their blogs.
#1 - I made dinner tonight from an cookbook of westernized African recipes my mother-in-law gave me for Christmas. Last Christmas, while we were waiting on Firefly, she gave me a soul food cookbook. Cooking is a primary vehicle for love and tradition for my MIL. I think it's neat that she is affirming our new family identity in her own way.

#2 - At one point in my life, I had four earring holes, two in each year. Now I have one--just one total--in my left ear. I went for a long, long time without wearing earrings and apparently my ears decided to heal themselves right up. I'd really like to be able to wear earrings again, but I'm too chicken to get my one ear re-pierced. Which makes me less courageous than most elementary school girls.

#3 - My birthday is in 21 days.

#4 - That makes me an Aquarius. But I don't know what that means. Except that I'm supposed to be logical? I think?

#5 - I voted for Stirrup Queens at the Weblog Awards today. And yesterday (only on the internet is "vote early, vote often" actually an acceptable directive). Did you? What Mel has done to create an online hub for the nebulous infertile-ish community is so impressive. It would be awesome to see that recognized.

#6 - I am terrible at guessing people's ages. From kids to adults. I think I'm missing the brain cell that helps you do that.

#7 - I am drinking a cup of peppermint tea right now and hoping that if I wish hard enough a cookie will appear. Preferably something cinniamony. Like a snickerdoodle or a palmier. No chocolate. Oh lordy, I've been reduced to blogging about imaginary snacks. Someone save me.

I'm tagging the last seven bloggers to comment here: Vintage Mommy, Luna, Lori, Tammy, DrSpouse, Spring and Susan. (Hopefully that won't discourage anyone from commenting!) I won't be offended if you don't choose to take it up, but if you need some blog fodder, go for it!

Had 10 holes at one time. Actually make that 11.

I was a hairdresser, and in beauty school we learned to use the piercing gun. On each other. There was a time I had five holes in each ear, and then one in the top of the left ear.

I have only one hole in each ear now. I either wear my grandma's small diamonds or the silver hoops my mom gave me for my bday.

It's funny at one time I was all about the earrings, but now, not so much. Too much trouble to think about changing them.

Re: #6 ... in that case, I'm 25. Surely you'll believe that if you can't tell anyway. :)

@Lisa V - You PRACTICED on each other?!? Beauty school is way more hardcore than I would have thought. I'm cringing.

Heather said...

@Megan - I'm not kidding, I'd totally believe you. Well, maybe 27. :)

Heather, there's a typo in your link to Susan's blog (blogpsot) which has very strange consequences.

Heather said...

Yikes--thanks abebech.

Tag noted--and imaginary snacks are my fave (easy on my hips) :)

Lori said...

Oh no, commenting has come back to bite me. I've never followed through on a tag but I'll give this one some thought. First, I need to find some free time to blog!

I have the same missing brain cell when it comes to guessing people's ages. And heights for that matter. I would make a terrible carnie because I'd probably be just as bad at weights. Another possible career path foiled.
