I'VE BEEN TAGGED ...

I don't normally do this ... feel like it's a kind of chain-letter thingy BUT am going to since my sweetest friend, Sophs, tagged me ...

7 Random Facts about me ... sigh ... can't think of anything very interesting - may take me all day to complete this post ... sigh ... ok, get a grip, Tracy ...

1.
I love walking in the rain - has to be a soft rain with no wind and I must not have had my hair blow-dried straight - yes, I know I am fussy but we do get these gloriously soft rainy days and I love them (FYI - my hair is curly to the point of out of control and I have it blow-dried straight 3-4 times a month. I keep it under control for the rest of the month with mousse or some other inspired anti-frizz, miracle-worker product) - my luck, those gorgeous days come on the same day as my salon appointments ... grrr ...
2.
I am obsessed (ok, not quite obsessed but certainly weirdly fascinated) by serial killers and the reasons why they are so warped - I will read any book or watch any movie or documentary about serial killers - sick, sick, sick ....
3.
I have a thing about dirt - I cannot bear a grubby floor, especially since I walk around my home barefoot most of the time, and crumbs or dirt on the kitchen and bathroom floors will drive me mental ... I don't like dirty homes - I feel icky and disgruntled ... (just so you know ... tee hee ...). Picture this ... we are building a granny flat out back for my mom and with the nasty winds we have had recently it has been impossible to keep sandy gritty floors clean - I am losing the battle and with it, my mind .... no jokes here, girls ...
4.
I HATE (very seldom use this word) lies and deceit and manipulation - cannot bear being lied to and feel immensely guilty for weeks if I tell a lie - I usually confess my lies almost immediately. I will not be manipulated ...
5.
I am a list-maker ... I even make a list of what I am going to clean when I clean my house - there's no accounting for sanity ... (I often lose my lists and then make lists to find other lists and ... I am very tired ...)
6.
I looooove to laugh - and when I laugh I laugh out loud ... (even at inopportune moments ...)
7.
(whew - last one) I love intensely (esp my boys and my family) - there is no in between for me ...

So, now you know a little bit about me and I guess I have to pass this on by tagging others ...

Link to your Tagger and list these rules on your blog.

Share 7 facts about yourself - some random, some weird.

Tag 7 people at the end of your post and link their blogs.

Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs.

Sorry, girls (and I say sorry because I know we are all busy but I do this in the spirit of fun so maybe you will too - hint ... hint ... jerk your rubber arm ...) ...

Greg gets his new bakkie today - enjoy, hon ... and Bryce has gone to White Mountain today - see you on Friday, babe ... Be good and I love you more ....

Have a fab day everyone - I am off to have a paraffin wax pedi - Thanks for spoiling me, Annie ...

Love,
