Seven Things About Me

My sweet friend over at Baby Love Slings has tagged me to write seven things about myself. Sounds fun. I will try to skip the obvious, because if you read this blog you already know I love the South, Appalachia, sweet tea, and college football. While I'm at it, I'll put in a plug for my friend's beautiful baby slings. I am a big babywearing fan for purely practical reasons, and her slings are great.

So, my seven things:

1. My all-time favorite movie is "The Breakfast Club." I think I watched it once a week in college.
2. I subscribe to Sports Illustrated, and my husband has no interest whatsoever in stealing it from me.
3. I hate being tickled more than just about anything else a person could do to me. (Needless to say, I was surprised to find that Hobbes begs for "mo" when he gets tickled. I never knew anyone could be like that.)
4. I spent the summer after I graduated from college backpacking in Europe.
5. I spent the two years after college living in a Christian commune. I'm all about the hippie lifestyle!
6. None of my top 10 songs were recorded after 1974. (hippie lifestyle)
7. I hope to one day get my PhD in comparative literature, probably after all these little people who keep appearing around me grow up and move out.

And now I get to tag some people. So the two people who read my blog who haven't been tagged:

Making Room For More
Beloved Beginner

and YOU, whoever you are...

Well, do I get any points for already knowing #1,2,4,&5 ? :-) I always think of you when I see "The Breakfast Club" which is on TV here surprisingly often!

Thanks for the "tag". I'll have to think on this for a bit and come up with something interesting.

I love that you are the SI reader AND that you want your PhD in comparative literature. What a equal opportunity reader you are! :) I didn't know that you hate to be tickled. See, we do learn new things about our friends... :)

P.S.~ Thanks for the sweet plug for my slings. What a good friend.

i didn't know about the tickling thing either! after all that giggling you did while we were in college you would think it included some tickling, but not so much.

thx for tagging... on to think about myself!

Elizabeth, four out of seven is pretty good. I'll take you out for a beer next time you are in the country!

Farrah, I only read the good stuff, SI has the best writing of any magazine out there, hands down.

Rach, looking forward to reading your seven things.
