I guess I'm gonna stay "it"

I received this comment from Embee in yesterday's post:
You've been tagged! Check out this blog to find out what that means:

Have fun ... and don't forget to let me know when you've completed your 8!
Curious, I followed the link and read her explanation and the "rules" of the game. It seems to me to be the blog equivalent of chain letters and chain emails, but I decided to comply . . . to a certain extent. Because it saves me from having to come up with a topic for today's post (I promise, I'll think of something good for Monday), I'm going to list my eight "facts" . . . but I'm going to break the rules by not specifically tagging others. The instructions for participating can be found at the bottom of this post--if you want to participate, by all means consider yourself tagged!

Eight Facts About Me
  1. One of my hobbies is making jewelry.
  2. My ideal fast food meal would consist of a Wendy's cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato and mustard, McDonald's fries and a Jamocha shake from Arby's.
  3. My best friends and I spoke a "secret" language all through junior high and high school.
  4. I have almost 50 pairs of shoes.
  5. My favorite movie of all time is Planes, Trains and Automobiles.
  6. My husband calls me "The Badger" because I'm small and cute, but can be mean as hell when provoked.
  7. I could spend hours in The Container Store.
  8. I don't forward chain emails, even when they promise special animations or money from Bill Gates, or threaten years of bad luck if I don't send them to a specific number of friends--which is why I'm breaking the rules in this game of tag, too (sorry Embee)!
The tag rules are as follows:
  • Each player starts with eight random fact/habits about themselves.
  • People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules. At the end of your blog post, you need to tag eight people and list their names.
  • Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’ve been tagged and to read your blog.

LOL! I have only 40 pairs - I need to catch up!

LOVE that movie! Isn't it hilarious?

My top 8 right here (I break rules, too):

1. Oreos and a glass of milk - my favorite snack.

2. I still cry when I hear Skin by Rascal Flatts. And it's a sappy song.

3. I change the oil in my car.

4. I'm a huge fan of Ghost Hunters.

5. I once owned a cow named Andrew Malcolm who was struck by lightning (sadly, he didn't make it).

6. I'm tolerant of both religious and political stands unless you're shoving your opinions down my throat - then I'm simply bored with you.

7. I plug in the iPod and dance almost every night while making dinner - country line dancing, the electric slide, or just shaking my butt.

8. I think Eddie Izzard is the most quotable, hilarious comedian on the planet. You either love him or you go "huh?"

Hi - Sorry if I offended by tagging you. I got tagged and thought it was a fun way to get to know the people behind the blogs! (I enjoy yours, btw)

Lori - I LOVE Eddie Izzard. He is quoted often around our house!

Lori--cake or death?

Embee--I wasn't at all offended, and it was fun to read your list (and Lori's above) and come up with my own. I just wasn't comfortable specifically tagging others.

Cake, please. ;)) Thank you for flying Church of England...
