I'll play along.

Jeanette tagged my ass. Per her orders, I need to list 8 random things about myself. I'll do it, too, since I'm about half skeered of her!

1. I love lime. The color, the taste, the smell, even how limes look.
2. I caused someone I used to post with on a message board to have a mental breakdown once. Literally. I didn't mean to cause *that, but I was still sort of proud.
3. I have a tendency to buy and hoard certain, odd items: fabric softeners, scatter rugs, silk flowers, soft drinks, air/fabric fresheners, new toothbrushes and mops.
4. I carry a folded up dollar bill in my wallet. It's signed "Love, Daddy. 1972" When he gave it to me, he told me that as long as I kept it, I'd never be broke.
5. My car tags expired last month and I keep forgetting to get my new sticker.
6. Blue Christmas lights are my favorite.
7. I am a gun owner and an excellent shot. For years I had a concealed weapon permit and carried a Ruger .357 Magnum. I still carry it occasionally, but not legally.
8. I support the legalization of all drugs.

Okay, I have no idea who has been tagged and who hasn't, so if you read this and haven't been, please do it and let me know so I can go read!

I want the breakdown story too. I can't tell you how many times you have made me burst out laughing the past few weeks at OHiH. And after reading #7 I will be very cautious about how I respond to you!

lol...my inspection sticker expired and I still haven't gotten them renewed!

I too would love to hear the mental breakdown story.

As far as Grandma Tuna, well she was a larger lady and she loved the water, she would sit in her tube and someone (can't remember who) stated she looked like a tuna boat and so she was always fondly called grandma tuna. As a child the other things related to tuna don't come to play.

Thanks for your list of randomness!

Haha! I am stalking your old posts and came across this one and had to laugh. Thanks for cheering me up, I needed it. Also, I'm still jealous of your air freshener collection and if you ever decide to get rid of it, I'll send you my address.
