Tag

I've been tagged by Madras and Martinis and All Things Fluffy, Fashionable and Famous to post seven random or weird facts about myself.  Here are the rules:
Okay, here comes some totally random randomness!
  1. I am the youngest of six children.  I am the youngest by six years.  Hmmm...I wonder if that means that I wasn't planned??

  2. I have situs inversus:   an uncommon condition in which the heart and other organs of the body are transposed through the sagittal plane to lie on the opposite (left or right) side from the usual.  Therefore, my heart is on the right side instead of the left, as well as the appendix, gallbladder, spleen, etc...  I have no side affects from this and usually forget that I have it.  X-ray technicians freak out when I forget to tell them this.

  3. I do not drink coffee.  Blech!  It doesn't taste good.  I'd much prefer green iced tea or a Coke, please!

  4. I do not drink alcohol.  Well, okay--I rarely drink alcohol.  I just don't like it better than a Coke or iced tea and it makes me too tired!  On special occasions I may have a drink and if so I prefer champagne or Pinot Grigio.  Sometimes I go a little wild and order a Margarita.  Have you ever had a Pomegranate Margarita?  

  5. I was a very serious student at an all-girls high school and went to college on scholarship.  It took me one year of having a little too much fun to lose said scholarship.  I then wrote the University a letter explaining that my low grades were due to the fact that I had contracted Mononucleosis that year which had affected my studies.  This was kinda true, but not entirely true.  They extended my scholarship another year.

  6. I  had so much fun in college that it took me six years to graduate with my bachelor's degree.  I drank lots of alcohol in college and really enjoyed it and it didn't make me tired at all. 
I'm going to tag (If you feel like playing along, that is!):

Ok I will do this but not tonight 'cause hubs asked I watch the debate with him- EW. I don't want to. ANd I may not- may do my nails.

Thanks for tagging me. Fun!

I haven't had the Pomegranate Margarita but I've had the Pomegranate Martini. It was really good. I'm guessing the margarita is just as delightful. :)

Thanks Girlie, I just finished it. I hope you don't think I'm too "WEIRD" now!!

Darrin said...

BTW... you're now on my blog roll. (Sorry... Thought I added you long ago)
Cheers!

That's crazy about your reverse organs - I've never heard of that!

Caffeine Court said...

A pomegranate margarita?! Yummy. Probably a million calories, but it sounds totally worth it!

Darrin said...

Okay.... now you're OFFICALLY one of my peeps!! My blog needed a touch of class, and you're IT!!

Your organs are reversed! That's so cool!

The Mrs. said...

Six children and reversed ograns! Amazing! I hate coffee too. Iced tea for me!

Mrs.D said...

Yes, I think reversed organs are cool, too. I know it really doesn't matter, but it's neat! And pomegranate margarita? Yum, I will have to try one.

Mrs. K said...

i loved your list (the political one you may be editing - ;)-) after you post it can i borrow it?

Another thing in common...I rarely drink alcohol. I don't like wine and I don't like beer. I enjoy a mixed drink now and then when we have dinner out, but other than the occasional glass of port, I don't imagine I have a drink at home five times a year.

I am the youngest of 5 children (and the only girl). And I am the youngest by 12 years. Granted all of my brothers are "half brothers" but still... wow-pretty sure I was a great surprise :)

Madeline said...

WOW...proof we are related! (See #3 and #4) And now I know who my kids take after!!!! (See #5 and 6!) I thought I was the only one who still didn't drink coffee. And alcohol...blech! Nothing since college, when all my friends had as their goal to find something that I would drink.

Petunia said...

LOL! Yes--never thought of that, but I guess they get it from their Aunt Petunia!!

Thanks for tagging me--it was fun! Regarding your #1 and lyndsau's comment--as you saw on my list, my oldest sibling is 18 years older than me; the next youngest is 10 years older than me. My poor parents. heh heh!
