Tag You're It - The "It's An Honor To Be Nominated" Edition

Cynthia over at the LOVELY Finding Great Joy tagged me in a fun little meme.

First I must thank the Academy Cynthia for tagging me because mine is the little unknown, unread, unloved blog.  I love to take part in the reindeer games though!!

Such fun!  It is all about the randomness that is Jamie!  I am nothing if not random!

So without further ado.....

  1.  The first rule is to post these rules.
  2. Post a photo of yourself then write 11 things about you/your life.
  3. Answer the questions for you set in the original post.
  4. Create 11 new questions and tag people to answer them.
  5. Go to their blog/twitter to tell them you have tagged them.
I think finding a photo of me was the hardest part! I am the camera holder and snapper! Rare that I am in the picture!

1. I dream about CHOP just about every night these days.  Last night my neighbors growing up were working at the hospital AND I misplaced Anna on some level of the hospital you couldn't get to from where I was (interpret that however you like but the fact of the matter is if you have ever been to CHOP you know that this is a legit fear.....that place is a labyrinth!
2.  Growing up I used to hide my Cabbage Patch Kid under the cover of my bed for fear that someone would peak in my window, see the doll, and try to steal her!
3.  Now I sleep with a mushroom...much less concern about abduction!
4. My mother's maiden name is Fagot...I don't think any witty commentary is required.
5. I don't like the Beatles
6.  I also don't like Elvis
7. I have a degree in music education and used to play the flute quite well (I can also play the clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, euphonium, tuba, and can fake it at piano and french horn)
8.  When I was little I used to practice Candy Land to improve my skills at the game.
9.  All of my kids were born on Tuesdays
10. Ben was born on Super Tuesday AND Fat Tuesday
11. I once told one of my professors in college that my mom said she was the devil.  I can no longer remember if my mom actually did say that or if I made it up.

Ok, now the questions Cynthia came up with for me:

  1. Mini-van or other?  Yes mini van
  2. Favorite clothing item?  Oh my gosh.  I am a fashion moron so I have no idea.  My jeans, or my slippers, or my Crocs...depending on mood/season
  3. Best friend in the whole wide world? Why? Can I pick two??  Of course I can this is my blog!  First Linda who has been my friend since 5th grade.  She is the least judgmental most devoted and encouraging friend.  I feel like she is always the same while I go through all sorts of crazy phases of life...she is a rock. And my #2 is my friend Sharyn who lives in Australia now.  We spent a summer together as co-counselors and she has been my soul mate of friends ever since.  Obviously, we see each other rarely.
  4. Favorite movie?  Hmm, I love the Anne of Green Gables movies.
  5. Your favorite trait about yourself? Sense of Humor?
  6. Best concert you've ever been to?  Bare Naked Ladies
  7. Most difficult decision you've ever had to make? Oh man, where do I start?? I guess to convert to Catholicism
  8. What did you want to be when you were little? A mom and a teacher
  9. Favorite quote? How can it be a large career to tell other people's children about the Rule of Three, and a small career to tell one's own children about the universe? How can it be broad to be the same thing to everyone, and narrow to be everything to someone? No; a woman's function is laborious, but because it is gigantic, not not because it is minute. I will pity Mrs. Jones for the for the hugeness of her task; I will never pity her for its smallness -- GK Chesterton
  10. Most expensive item [at the grocery store] that you have ever purchased??  I bought my Keurig at Shop there ya go.
  11. Best television series you have ever watched?  Cla and I are really enjoying Larkrise to Candleford right now
And last but not least...the tagging!

Oh my, I loved reading these! Such a fun way to get to know you! First of all...I understand the "no pictures thing." The very few I have of me were taken on one day by a friend/photographer for our family. Needless to say, I don't have many current ones. I do love that picture of you and your sweet baby.

AND, I have to tell you how incredibly in love I was/am with the Anne of Green Gables series! I would beg my parents for the series each and every Christmas until I wore 'em down ;) That reminds me...I haven't seen the very, very last one. Have you?

Thanks for joining in on the fun!

Cynthia you have no idea of the true extent of my Anne of Green Gables obsession. It is my all time favorite books and my favorite movies. I read the entire series just about every two-three years. I want to be Anne when I grow up. My email address (driadzbubl) is Anne related. It was a dream come true when my Anna was born and it became clear her hair would be red...and then it also became curly!! She is my Anne ;) LOL

And yes I have the last movie....I don't recommend it. It is pretty lame and is a total departure from the books. Well I should say don't bother if you are expecting anything remotely Anne like. If you want a fairly diverting historical fiction type movie then go for it LOL
