7 Random Things...

Barb from May December Home has tagged me to tell 7 random things about myself! So here goes!

1. My monogram spells out an embarrassingly “frisky” word so I do not own anything monogrammed (it’s true!!)

2. I am terrible with managing money! When I was in high school I was the treasurer of my sorority (yep, we still had them in the 80s!). What were they thinking? I believe I still owe them at least $20.00. Phi Delta Sigma, I am sorry.

3. I absolutely love bananas but hate ANYTHING banana flavored. I cannot figure this out and it bothers me.

4. I have a desire to work at Home Depot at Customer Service because I very badly want to use the store microphone and say, “Price and sku needed at register 9”. When I’m there I have to resist grabbing the mike from the rep’s hand. It’s madness.

5. I am married to a forensic scientist who is a Crime Scene Investigator. The real CSI!

6. When I was 6 my brother threw worms at me and it wasn’t until my Mom combed out my hair that evening that they all came out. I had no idea they were in my hair all day and can’t stand worms til this very day!

7. I am badly in need of progressive lenses but am not giving in (now who is the loser here??)

This was really fun!

Glad to know more about you. I hate the flavoring thing too. Strawberry and banana flavoring are disgusting. They taste so very Fake! YUCK!!

Hmmmm...interesting bunch of stuff here! I spent some time being the manager for a Crime Scene Clean-Up company. I am somewhat addicted to the whole crime, forensic, medical examiner thing, so I am incredibly envious of your husband's job!!

And the progressive lenses? Kinda tough to get used to, but worked out well for me ;)

That's funny. I love banana flavored things more than I like bananas!

How good to get to know more about you. Hubby and I are addicted to Miami CSI even though some of the corniness of the show cracks us up. And, my former Marine husband just got NCIS (4 seasons) for his birthday! You know what we'll be watching.

Go ahead get the progressive'll be so glad you did!

Have the Best of Weeks......Rosie
