I've Been Tagged Again

A couple of weeks ago, Clover tagged me with the "8 Things About Me" meme, and though I already played once, I figured what the heck. I'll play again. So here, for your Monday viewing pleasure, are 8 new things you might not know about me:

1. I started taking piano lessons when I was 8 years old.

2. So...when hubby and I moved into our new home last year, the first thing we bought for the living room (before any of the furniture, even) was a baby grand piano. It sat there amid the scaffolding and paint supplies for a month before we finished the rest of the room!

3. I do not have a green thumb. In fact, I really don't enjoy gardening. I've tried to do some planting and landscaping this spring but it's more of a hassle, with all the upkeep, than anything else.

4. My favorite color is red, though most of my work clothes are black (hey, it's easier to match in the morning!).

5. At 5'7", I am the shortest person in my immediate family.

6. I have traveled to 41 of the 50 states.

7. My husband and I own lake property in upstate NY and have already started planning our retirement home there even though neither one of us can retire for another 20+ years.

8. I still have a scar on my left knee from when I was in 8th grade, running the hurdles on a cinder track, and I wiped out BIG TIME. Took off so much skin there was nothing to stitch together.

I'm opting not to tag anyone since I think this meme has been around cyber-world for awhile. but if you want to play, let me know! And thanks for the tag, Clover ~ it's always fun to play!!

OMG... one of the prime places DH wanted lake property was in upstate New York. He is going to be SO jealous when I tell him!

LOL on being short at 5'7"!

Want me to swing by and do your gardening? :-)

Happy Monday.

You're right about the 5 or 8 Things list. I made a preemptive strike and posted 100 Things. Try it, it's fun.

Hey Allie!

Sorry to use your blog for this, but I'm trying to send you your next round of edits on One Night in Boston, and getting the message that your mailbox is full.

If you could let me know if there's another address to try, that'd be great.

You can send that to my samhainpublishing address. Thanks!

*Ouch* the running accident sounds like it was terribly painful.

Ugh, I don't think I can like you anymore, Allie... I get jealous of women taller than me, LOL... Seriously, when my baby brother started getting taller I wanted to squash him :))

Completely off topic but I got my RWR today and looked for your name. How cool!

Anyway, have to agree with the other Ali. I'll never see over 5 feet unless I'm in heels, but I can kick the heck out of some ankles. :}
