I was tagged by Kerrie for the 8 Random Things blog.

I'm not quite sure how much more random or unknown things I can pull out my ass for you fine (but obviously not quite chatty) readers.

And, long time readers know how I feel about rules.

Here they are:

1. Each blogger starts with 8 random facts/habits about themselves.

2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog post about their 8 things and post these rules.

3. At the end of your blog post, you need to choose 8 people to get tagged and list their names.

4. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged and to read your blog.

5. For the recipients, leave a comment for the person who tagged you, so they can go and read your answers.

Let's get this party started:

1.There are days I question my decision to be a wife and mother, but generally speaking, I think I chose well.

2. I LOVE BBQ chips.

3. And I love caramel.

4. I think body art, and body modification is beautiful.

5. I hate morning sex, but I enjoy flying solo in the mornings.

6. I have serious anxiety issues.

7. My husband is the most attractive and the sexiest man I have ever known.

8. I handle all the finances here and in some ways, I wish I didn't.

That is ocho, my gringos.


  1. Okay, more than I wanted to ever know about you on #5! Ditto #1 and #8.

  2. A little more of #5 can help you with #6. So I hear.

  3. I am with you on the anxiety. Sometimes I find that if I drink too much wine at night, I can wake up really fidgety and bug eyed. I think I have a sulfite allergy. I need a new poison. Hmmphh.

  4. Following Dave, a little more #3 can help you with I hear

  5. I handle all of the finances too and in fact am doing our taxes! I love it though. I like being in control!

    I like flying solo in the mornings as well! :)

    Hugs - Tiff

  6. Hmm...seems like #5 is a big hit ;)

  7. Heck I didn't even know you had a pilots liscense! Congrats!

  8. Chris - Sorry. Sometimes I throw in a little TMI.

    Loni - at this point, thinking up even one thing I haven't already mentioned is tough.

    Dave - I've tried that, but only medication seems to really work.

    MsPulp - I drink Chardonnay, I think it's only red wine with sulfites? Health food places sell wine w/o sulfites.

    Warren - LOL.

    Tiff - Sometimes, the finance issues add to my anxiety. I think I overthink it sometimes. :-)

    Efen - Even a bigger hit if I used my webcam, huh? LOL

    Ron - I know! I can't believe I learned all that.

  9. I love the list! I, too, am finance manager of our house. Sometimes the responsibility irritates me. But I am certainly more organized about it than Wally is!
    I love #5 and wholly agree!

  10. I agree with 5 but I am not even interested in flying solo in the morning. I prefer to stay grounded until evening.

  11. Well, I for one applaud number five and practice it as often as indecency allows :)

  12. PS for Dave, More of #5 might help with #6, but there is no such thing as enough #5 to get rid of #6 entirely. If it were, my fingers would be worn to bare bumps at the ends of my palms.

    Somehow I sense that may be an overshare.

  13. Anxiety yes, think my husband is the sexiest, nope.....And how could you not like morning sex !!! After a cup of coffee its the next best thing on a Saturday morning.

  14. How does eating BBQ chips and caramel while flying solo in the morning sound --- all at the same time, while having you body modified, while staring at a picture of your husband, who is currently balancing your checkbook?

  15. "I enjoy flying solo in the mornings."

    You're a pilot?!? Cool!

    Wait, what?

  16. Wait a HAVE a webcam???? (searching around for my old one ;)

  17. Trisha - I'm much more organized too, hence I have the job.

    BB - Thanks for having my back, girl!

    The Girl - Now if it's after the shower in the morning, that's different - but also difficult when small kids are always around - being pesky!

    LBB - I think that might just do me in.

    RZ - I prefer that term to the other, so, um, yeah....

    Efen - LOL.

  18. I lourve morning sex, although it's been a while since I've had any. :( After the brushing of teeth, though, of course.

  19. Hmmm. None of those 8 resonated with me. Maybe we'll have more overlap on the next meme.

  20. Nothing wrong with a little #5 (either way)...or a lot (either way)

  21. You're so funny. And much more honest than I could ever be!

  22. #1 before #5 makes for an interesting morning. Kinda like working at the salsa factory would.

    Caramel is just about my favorite flavor in the world. Better than chocolate.

    I'm with ya on #6...SIGH

    #7...not so much

    #5 has you turning Japanese, but your salutation has you turning Spanish, so now I'm confused

  23. I used to handle the finances until panic attacks almost sidelined me. Chachi took over about 5 years ago. I now have no idea how much we have in the bank, and I like it that way.

  24. well according to #5...number 7 isn't true in the mornings!
