Tag, I'm It!

I was tagged by my friend, oH mY wORD!, last week to share 7 Random Things about me. This is a hard one for me, because I feel like I share randomly about me every time I post. Classic Mama morphed her tag into her 7 Favorite Movies, which has caught on like bloggity wildfire to several other gals (okay, one other gal that I know of!). In the interest of keeping everyone around me happy and glowing, and further enforcing my desire to make everyone that I know like me more, I am going to combine both memes and see what I come up with. (grin, giggle, snicker here!)

My Random Meme About Me:
1. I hate feet. I think they are icky, and I go to ridiculous lengths to make sure that somehow mine look cute from about April till October. This includes, but is not limited to, great nail polish, toe rings, and nail decals. Kickin' summer shoes are a must. Heels preferred.

2. My favorite date movie is Shining Through. If you have not seen this with your significant other, you really must. If you find it on DVD, please send it to me. I will pay you back. My VHS copy is getting worn and ragged.

3. I love The Boss's cologne. It's the same cologne he's worn since college, and it is getting very hard to find. It's inexpensive, drug store type cologne. But after 21 + years together, it still gives me a tickle in the pit of my tummy and makes me shiver when I smell it.

4. The funniest movies I have ever seen are tied: Twins, with Danny DeVito and Ahnold, and Wild Hogs, with John Travolta and ensemble. I mostly love Twins because it made my Dad laugh harder than I've ever seen him laugh over a comedy and I got a huge kick out of seeing him lose it, multiple times in one movie. Wild Hogs was just outrageous and silly and I needed that that day.

5. Shaggy's hair makes me jealous. It's rich, thick, wavy and incredibly healthy. It makes me wish I hadn't kept going shorter with every baby I birthed. Every where we go, he gets comments on his gorgeous hair. And I confess, I actually love it longer. He recently got it cut which makes The Boss happy, but I miss the golden locks.

6. My favorite classic Disney movie is Mary Poppins. It's a true classic and I hope and pray they never, ever remake it. I'm completely convinced that absolutely no one can ever improve upon Julie Andrews' and Dick van Dyke's interpretations of the characters. Ever. Has anyone ever seen this on DVD? Our VHS version is getting worn and ragged. :)

7. I have been a subscriber of Good Housekeeping magazine since the year we got married. No other magazine even comes close to the quality of this publication, although I do occasionally subscribe to others. The recipes, the human interest stories, the fiction, I love it all. And I love that it's so family friendly to leave on the coffee table - MOSTLY! One thing I do dislike? The rotation of celebrities lately has seemed trite and repetitive. I much prefer when they feature real women or women who have done amazing things in our culture. Please, no more Katie Couric on the cover of GH!

There you have it. My version of the "Tag, You're It" game. If you are looking for something interesting to blog about and are coming up dry, consider yourself tagged :)

Mary Poppins DVD

I knew it existed because we've gotten it from our library a couple of times.

Anytime you're looking, just go to and do a search on the movie title and DVD.

:)When I visit you (or you visit me hint, hint) I'll make sure to wear socks at all times.

Thanks for the ideas about the splash of cranberry. I am going to have to try that. Mr. Clean's tests results have to go before the review board and then we will find out. So, I'm thinking a couple of weeks! Thanks for asking.

Wild Hogs was hilarious!!! I was so surprised that I even agreed to watch it and so glad that I did!

I'm not a big fan of feet either...I'm even grossed out when someone gives me a pedicure...I can't help but think what is wrong with someone when they want to make a living by touching other people's feet??? It's right up there with funeral director!!

I love Mary Poppins. I also love the Sound of Music. I guess I am a Mary Poppins fan.

Mary Poppins....just was talking about her the other day. Loved that movie!

CampHillGirl said...

Yep, we have Mary Poppins on DVD and video--it used to be the only movie our kids could see for a couple years, until we then saw Toy Story 2 and then Aristocats and then it was downhill from there. Abby loves Julie Andrews' books, too--one was something like The Last of the Really Great Whangdoodles.

I haven't heard of any of the other movies, not that that entirely means I haven't seen them--I'll ask Dave.

I forgot to comment!! ACK!! Sheesh. Sorry. I got a chuckle out of your handle for your son. "Shaggy". It's brilliant and he's cute.

Mary Poppins is one of my favorites, too. I'm not sure what my second best would be. *L*

My first official magazine subscription was to GH. My dad said, "I don't think I've ever met an actual person that subscribed to that magazine." Made me laugh.

It's a great list!!!
