Tag, I'm It

OK, Lori finally cornered me and tagged me with this blog thing going around.

1. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
3. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight 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.

Here goes:

8. When I went to Florida as a child I was in an elevator with Jan and Dean. My first brush with greatness.
7. When I eat multicolored food (m&ms, for example) I have to have an equal amount of all colors. I then eat one of each color until they're all gone. Did I mention there's a lot of OCD in my family?
6. My biggest guilty pleasure is The Monkees, both the show and the music. Mike Nesmith is by far my favorite Monkee.
5. I almost always sneeze in threes. I've been told that's a sign of luck. I call it seasonal allergies.
4. The most surreal two minutes of my life occurred when I lived in Boston. I walked out of my apartment and literally bumped into Peter Wolf; as I walked away I proceeded to pass a little person, then two transvestites. By the time I reached the end of the blog I wondered if someone had slipped something in my drink.
3. I had a serious dream of becoming a musician. I attended Berklee College of Music for one year and realized my real talents were in my writing, so I transferred.
2. As a child I had two imaginary friends, Patrick and Patricia.
1. Since we were little kids my best friend and I have always had a bizarre psychic connection. If either one of us thought of the other, the phone would suddenly ring and it would be one of us. One time I was traveling through her town and tried to arrange a get-together, but our schedules weren't working. I stopped at a department store there before leaving, and in the parking lot I saw a car drive by with her in it! We managed to hang out for 10 minutes as she bought a birthday card for the party she was going to. The oddest thing of all: I invited her to my 15th class reunion (she went to school with me from grades 3-7). At the reunion she hooked up with one of the guys in our class, and three months later she arranged for me to meet his brother. We both married the brothers, and now we're sisters-in-law!

And now, I’m tagging Beula, Debra, Helen, Lynette, Jen S., Michele, Tree Lover, Ty
If any of you have already done this, my apologies.

Crap, Lori got you first. I am still counting you as one of the people I tagged... hope that doesn't mess up my blog Karma too much.

The first time I was tagged, it was 5 things. You can see that post on 2/14 on my blog.

Thanks so much for all your supportive comments. It's so good to know that others have been/are there. I really appreciate it!

these are always great fun when other people do them :-)

i really enjoy getting to know more about the folks i read regularly. thanks for sharing yourself here.

i was tagged by Eric at Secrets of the Red Seven, so I threw my 10 things out there and then thought better of it and made it go away ;-)

I may give it some thought and revise a little. Felt a bit exposed, though I don't know what else I could tell folks that I haven't already. It just felt sort of like going naked into the world.

Hey, guess what? I actually lost a couple of pounds. I am profoundly grateful and absolutely astonished.
