7 Things

Hi Y'all!

One of my
bloggy pals just tagged me for my very first meme. I'm so proud, I'd like to thank my family, the meme writers association...hold on, getting a tad carried away now :)

And here are the rules if you decide to play along:
1) Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog
2) Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3) Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4) Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

1. hubby & I met on the internet - yes we were nuts but God had His hand in it & everything turned out ok. Although my sister was sure I'd be killed by a vicious ax murder...HA!

2. My name is Welsh in origin. (we have welsh ancestors on both sides of the family) I hated my name when I was a kid until my mom told me about the one I might have had. My Dad came up with it, based on where our home was. We lived near Puget Sound & on Rose Hill, thus my name would be Pugeatia Rose. My mom put her foot down about that one...a narrow escape for me!! He was also full of names for my cousins family has the last name of Boring & another Wood. I'm sure you can imagine some of the endless possibilities that earned groans from the rest of the family.

3. I am finally getting a neighbor after 8 months of living next to a vacant house. And she's nice, yippee!!

4. I have a treadmill in my family room that, surprise surprise, I never use. (even though I desperately need to be using it.) It's on the wall opposite my desk - I just looked over my shoulder at it, and it looked back at me reproachfully, poor rejected thing. At least I got it for free!

5. My crazy kids came up with a game they call 'fish slapping.' The idea came from the movie Jonah (by Veggie Tales.) They take the skinny arm-rest cushions from the couch and 'slap' each other over and over, laughing hysterically. And with the boys, it's even funnier if you get knocked down in the process. Boys!!

6. When I was in High School, my BFF & I were obsessed with Duran Duran. We called ourselves Duranimals. She was going to marry Simon LeBon & John Taylor was to be my man. (and they are still cute!) We were going to live next door to each other in loft apartments in New York. She would be a famous fashion designer & me, a celebrated Psychologist who sang in a little jazz combo on the weekends.
Ummm, yeah.

7. I just finished doing homework with Sam. My blood pressure is through the roof & my right eye is twitching. It's that much fun.

Ok annoying er, tagging my bloggy friends.

If you don't like meme's, poo-poo on you, I mean, don't do it. If you are a reader of mine (all 3 of you) and didn't get tagged, go ahead & steal it if you like.

I love the Duranimals name - you are a unique one! Fun list!

Megan (FriedOkra) said...

Dear Pugetia - Why I oughtta fish slap you! Get on that treadmill, you Duranimal, so you'll be ready for the jazz combo gig tonight. And stay off the internet, for Pete's sake. You're married.

Love, Friedokra

Rebekah said...

Those were good. I loved Duran Duran too, but didn't have plans for marriage.
...her name is Rio and she dances on the sand...

eally said...

That was very interesting! LOL
Met hubby on the internet huh? Would love to "read" about how that happened sometime....

Joanne said...

Duranimals...too cute. It gave me a flashback of the matching outfits, "Garanamals" that my mother used to buy me. Remember those? You would match the tiger tagged shirt with the tiger tagged pants?

Oh, and I thought that my treadmill was a clothes hanger?
