shotgun, bang!

Follow along it's gonna be a bullet ride!

  • I am finally getting to my tags. I know some people hate being tagged, others love the "meme's" (what a funny name) and then there are those like moi: I don't really hate them, but when I am tagged, I have to do it. I can't explain it: I guess that is one I can list as a quirky thing about me?
So here we go, (for Chris, Rebecca, Anla, Delenn, and Luna) I think you all know the rules by now-post weird/strange/funky things about yourself so other people can feel more normal. That's about the gist of it. I'm sort of combining the one that C, D, A & L tagged me for:

1) See bullet above. When tagged, I must do it, or I feel like the message will self destruct in 30 seconds. Clearly, that did not happen since I've sat on the tags for a good month now.

2) Can anyone guess what the title of my post is from? It may be from a few things, but what I think of is the song "Shoop" by Salt-n-Peppa. I know every word to that song/rap. I get into my groove when that song comes on-I get doooooown. I dare anyone to challenge my Shoop skills.

3) Mel Gibson made me get a tattoo. Well, he didn't come over to my house and drag me to the parlor, but after seeing Passion of the Christ, I wanted a daily reminder of my faith. While I wasn't a mega-fan of the movie, it touched a chord with me-and I love my cross tat!

4) I am a chicken salad connoisseur. I love me some chicken salad--but only a certain way. I request a sample of it before I order it anywhere, because I become seriously upset if it does not please my pallet.

5) Wire hangers are not allowed within 100 yards of my house.

6) I was the last girlfriend my third grade boyfriend ever had. We still keep in touch--he's an amazing Broadway actor, and he still teases me about our love affair on stage being better than one we would have ever had in real life.

7) My dream car is a 1942 Ford pick up truck.

8) I read magazines starting at the back. (Mook does too!)

Next tag is from Rebecca:

The rules are simple. Look up from the computer, look around the room where you’re sitting and pick up the closest book. Open the book, turn to page 123, count down to the fifth sentence on that page, and then post the next three sentences.

"Define that." ~Will Hunting, Good Will Hunting.

The closest book to me is my "Movie Book of Answers" but I love using it help me get funny answers to daily issues.

Onto more bullets....

  • Emily sent me an email last week letting me know about a great opportunity! This is for Big Cat Rescue--they need donations of "Unused 3cc syringes with 18-22 gauge needles for the cats shots" It's a tax deduction too--we can all use some tax $! Their contact info is on the bottom of the web page. Thanks Emily for the great idea!

  • I am so happy to be a part of the BlogHer network: yay!

  • Keep checking the Infertility Diaries widget on the left hand side for new posts=) Thanks for coming over to give some feedback!

  • The BlgrsUnite of NC are meeting on March 15th-I can't wait to see all the NC gals!

  • Momo (one of many nick names for Mosley) is adjusting well! We are so glad he's a part of our family-thanks for his warm, warm welcome-Ill be sure to post some pictures soon!
  • I'm done now. Thanks for making it through the bullet's! I tag Jen, Cathleen and Amy


  1. What's up with that thang? I wanna know how does it hang, straight up, wait up, hold up Mr. Lover.

    Oh the memories of being in the front row to a Salt n Pepa/R. Kelly concert in high school! No laughing allowed. :)

    Hee. And I'll have to come up with some more things to keep this tag going...

  2. Should I start calling you JoJo AKA Joan Crawford, instead of JJ? :)

    Gotta admit... I hate wire hangers myself.

  3. Oh how Shoop brings me right back to around 8th grade..I loved me some Salt N Pepa. I could have been in high school come to think of idea.

    I did hear about those crazy IVF identical triplets! How cool is that!?! What I'd love to know is if they only transferred one embryo b/c they only had one or if they didn't want to risk having multiples. That wasn't indicated on the segment I just said they'd transferred one but didn't give any explanation.

  4. Now I want to know where your tattoo is!

  5. This is great information about you! Can you puhleezz post a video of your shooping? I think you owe us that. :)

    *I'm so glad to hear that your new little family member is settling in well.

  6. Asking for a sample of the chicken salad is a great idea. I never thought of that. I just avoid chicken salad at places I've never had it before. Makes me wonder how I first tried it at the places I do order it-I can't remember.

  7. I start magazines at the back too. I always have! but I never read the end of a book before I should.

  8. What's up with that thang? I wanna know, how does it flow? Straight up, wait up, hold up, Mr. lover. Like Prince said, you're a sexy mother...

    I LOVE shoop!

  9. I am formally requesting a picture of the tattoo.

  10. Have you watched the Salt N Pepa show on VH1? I was gonna throw in a quote, but LJ beat me to it!!!!!

    I'm with you on the wire hangers! I hate picking my stuff up from the cleaners.

    And, I also read mags from front to back.

  11. Me and my loser band nerd friends in high school used to think it was funny to ask the drive thru at McDonald's to "give me some fries with that shake shake booty."
    They never got it.
    We were so sad.
    Want to see that tattoo!! I have been contemplating getting something faith based inked on me as well.
    Thanks for sharing and ps-though I never comment on your Redbook column I read it religiously and LOVE IT. You are an excellent writer.

  12. I have just started reading your blog and we have so many things in common. Im with you on the chicken salad, hangers, I say Ya'll (a lot)... I could go on and on about similarities in IF treatment.
    Enjoy your perspective and humor so much.

  13. That's so funny because my husband makes fun of me for the Ford trucks from the 40's being my favorite as well. Great minds think alike!

  14. My grandfather used to read his newspapers and magazines from back to front!

  15. I too request photo's of that tattoo!

  16. I love reading other people's "tags." So thanks for posting them! I add my request to the growing list for pics of the tattoo!


  18. btw, like many others, I read this title and, before I read anyting else, said out loud, "what's up with that thang?!" I love s-n-p, I can't lie. :-)

  19. Sure loved all of the tidbits of info, thanks for sharing!


There is nothing like a good pair of jeans; they shape us, support us and make us look our best. I'd love for you to share your jeans with me!
