 Em has tagged me!  Yay!  I’m somebody!  You like me; you really, really like me!  Now that my Sally Field moment is over (how do I get this damned nun’s habit off? What do you mean they can’t see me writing this, M.?), I bet you’re wondering what sort of meme this is.  It’s pretty simple.  It’s like this: 

The rules are as follows:
# Link to the person who tagged you
# Post the rules on your blog.
# Share seven random and/or weird facts about yourself on your blog.
# Tag seven random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs.
# Leave a comment on their blogs so that they know they have been tagged.

Sounds easy enough on the surface, right?  But narrowing it down to only seven things was rough.  There’s a lot of odd in me just dying to get out and prance (it would break dance but I can’t find my beat-box).  So here goes:  

~~I have gotten a new mole in an undisclosed location every six years like clockwork (and NO, I won’t tell you where, you pervert!) 

~~I’m experienced at castrating hogs (enough said really…right? lol)   

~~I have eaten various forms of roadkill cuisine including squirrel, raccoon, and opossum (though not actually off the road…as far as I know anyhow…and I’ve learned one thing…squirrel gumbo was GOOD…though I could never eat meat again…much less raccoon) 

~~On my first date with my ex-love J., we started talking about genealogy.  I quickly discovered that his surname was my mother’s maiden surname.  That’s right I was dating my cousin (hey, a VERY DISTANT cousin…like 10th cousin or somethin’…I got the lowdown before we started making out…sure I’ll date my cousin but I’m not a slut!) 

~~I wrote a scifi/fantasy novel and while writing it I realized one of the characters was subconsciously based on my ex-love J.  The anti-J. hero was a dark haired ex-soldier.  This happened 3 months before I met M. who is now an ex-soldier with dark hair (neenu neenu…neenu neenu) 

~~I enjoy showering outdoors.  At my second place, I personally installed an outdoor shower with hot & cold running water.  You never feel cleaner than when showering in the open air…or dirtier for that matter.  lol 

~~And random weirdness #7…We had a goat that also enjoyed me showering outdoors.  It didn’t really bother me at first until I realized that he didn’t show his…uh…appreciation…to anyone else but me.  (I learned to fear the goat ::crazy eyes::)  

Ohhhh…Jeff Foxworthy…you write it and I live it.  ::sigh::  Did I mention that my parents are hillbillies?  Explain much?   

And now that I’ve set the bar nice and high, we need the random people (I can only assume that they come from random sex).  I decided to delurk and tag some people who I thought could make this interesting and some to whom I thought this might be a challenge and some whose secret weirdness I just really wanted to know (up to them to figure out which one they are  ::evil grin::).  lol  So here’s the skinny on the randoms:
