Let's Play Tag!

I have been tagged three times lately by three different people, so I am going to try to catch up on these today. So, Kay, BP, and Liz here are my answers for the tag games.

Kay of Loop de Loops in La La Land tagged me for the first one -- I'm am supposed to list six quirky things about myself. One reason it has taken me so long to do this is because I've been trying to figure out what these six things will be. Here are the rules:
1) Link to the person who tagged me.
2) Mention the rules.
3) Tell six quirky yet boring, unspectacular details about myself.
4) Tag six other blogger´s by linking to them.
5) Go to each person’s blog and leave a comment that lets them know they’ve been tagged.

Six quirky things about me:
1. When my husband and I go for our walk, I have to have him on my left side. I can't stand for him to get on my right side.
2. On my bathroom counter I have a basket thingy for my makeup and another small plastic tray thing for my hot roller clips. While the counter can be a total mess and the makeup is just thrown into the makeup basket with no order whatsoever, I have to have every single roller clip in the other tray completely and perfectly lined up. I don't know why, but they have to be in perfect order.
3. I don't like tomatoes but I love salsa.
4. Every night when I go to bed I have to put an extra blanket on my side of the bed. But, it has to be turned the right direction -- the white side has to be down and the colored side up, and the end with the tag on it has to go toward my feet and not toward my face.
5. When I play the piano, I don't like for someone to turn pages for me -- I like to turn my own pages because no one else can turn them at exactly the right time for me.
6. Strongly scented candles or perfumes give me headaches.


BP of Raindrops & Rainbows Tagged me for this one:
It’s a random tag, and here are the rules!
1.) Link to the person who ‘tagged’ you!
2.) Post the rules on your blog!
3.) List 6 random facts about yourself!
4.) Tag 6 people at the end of your post!
5.) Let each person know they have been tagged by commenting on their blog!
6.) Let the tagger know the entry is posted on your blog!

Six Random Facts About Me:
1. I love Mexican food -- could eat it every day.
2. I'm turning 50 on my next birthday.
3. I got to see Elvis Presley (the real one) in concert one time.
4. My middle name is Jo. My nickname given by hubby when we were dating is K-Jo and some family members still call me that.
5. I am the second of four daughters born to my parents.
6. Not proud of this but it did happen.....I had a little wild streak during my teenage years and was grounded most of tenth grade because of coming home late one night and I had been drinking beer. At that time I had not even turned 15 yet. Thank God for parents who wouldn't let something like that go unnoticed!
*One more I just thought of in honor of USA's Olympic swimming gold medalist -- when I was a teenager, I had a life-size poster of Mark Spitz wearing his red, white and blue swim suit and his 7 gold medals -- it was hanging on the back of my bedroom door.
Now, for the last one, Liz of Kentucky Bound tagged me to do the 7 song tag. This is probably the easiest one for me since I love music.

The rules:
List 7 songs you are into right now. No matter what genre, whether they have words, or even if they are not any good, but they must be songs you are really into right now, shaping your summer. Post these instructions in your blog along with your 7 songs.Then tag 7 other people to see what they're listening to. (You don't have to do this, but if I can find the songs on You Tube I am going to add a link so you can listen to them if you'd like.)
1. You Are Everything - Matthew West
2. Only Hope - Switchfoot
3. Find You Waiting - Decemberadio
4. Open Arms - Journey
5. Hanging by a Moment - Lifehouse
6. Here Without You - Three Doors Down
7. Remembering - by KJo
I know I'm supposed to tag people, but it's taken me so long just to get this done I don't have time left to do the tagging. So, if you haven't done one of these games, please consider yourself tagged!

Hi Kathy! What fun to learn more about you! BTW you said you had a "little wild steak" in your teenage years... it gave me a laugh... because I think I had a taste of that myself! I was so upset one time that I told my step-father "You're not my father!" It was so disrespectful in conjunction to the whole situation that my driving privileges were taken away for months!

I bet this did take you a long time but I really enjoyed getting to know you better by this tag.

Wild streak? Whodathunkit? I hope you and the band had some good Mexican food while you were in Barbourville! We're still looking for a good Italian restaurant . . . actually we're still looking for any Italian restaurant!

Blessings from The Creek!

Hey Kathy,
We have quirks in common!
1. I also prefer my husband to be on my left side when walking or sitting in church.
2. I can also overlook several messy things surrounding the one thing that has to be perfectly arranged.
3. I ALSO have a blanket that has to be fixed just right at night....only on my side of the bed (because my husband gets too hot), folded down so that only my feet are covered, but with one corner of it within reach so I can pull it up during the night.
The design doesn't have a top and bottom but if it did, it would totally matter which way it faced! :)
