I'll stop itching (and bitching) for a couple minutes, since I was tagged by Lora, who has a lovely little blog called Sketch Shak with some great sketches for scrapbook pages--and incidentally, she's running a RAK challenge over there right now, so go check it out. Thanks, Lora! This one's been making the rounds of the blogs, I think...

Seven Random Facts about Me:

-I love old (pre-1965) movies. Some of my faves: Casablanca, The Manchurian Candidate, Laura, To Be or Not To Be, Rear Window, Strangers on a Train, Shadow of a Doubt, and The Day the Earth Stood Still.

-I can't curl my tongue.

-Spelling and grammar mistakes drive me nuts, especially in published books or magazine articles.

-I have the same middle name as my mother and my grandmother, and I asked my brother to pass it along to his daughter when she was born, to keep it going.

-I love to sing, absolutely love it. I still have those fantasies where I stand and sing into a mixing spoon and pretend it's a microphone and I'm on stage in front of an adoring crowd!

-Part of me secretly wants a really old fifties car to tool around in, a convertible with big fins.

-I am dying for the next Harry Potter book to come out, yet I don't want to read it and have the whole thing be over with.

I won't tag anyone else, but if you haven't done this one yet, do it!

Two words for your singing fantasy - AMERICAN IDOL. ;) Oh, wait... I think they have an age limit. Nevermind.

Does your middle name start with an "M"? I was sitting here trying to remember what your middle name is.

I can curl my tongue... I can twist it sideways, too. And yet, I'm still single. ;)

Ooh, I couldn't take that mean old Simon, anyway!

My middle name is Mae. :)

beverly d said...

whew! I remembered the middle name, then. I thought what a horrible friend I'd be if I couldn't remember your middle name.

Janelle said...

Believe me, that would NOT make you a horrible friend, Beverly Jean. ;)

OH! How cool...I'd love to have a classic car, too. I love the Fairlane and the Impala. Dh and I are working on getting us a "project car" to restore for car shows.

Don't check my posts for grammar errors.. was/were are my biggest hurdle... HA!!
