Tagged.....8 random things about me

I've been tagged! Thanks Cynthia! Just you will be coming your way!

Once tagged, you must link to the person who tagged you. Then post the rules before your list, and list 8 random things about yourself. At the end of the post, you must tag and link to 8 other people, visit their sites, and leave a comment letting them know they’ve been tagged.

I can not grow long fingernails.......theystart to grow and then wham! Splittling, peeling, cracking, chipping, bending, all happens! Even fake nails seem to get torn off quickly so I've given up.

I go through phases of Coke addiciton (as in Coca-Cola....I'm not that naughty)...and its not the caffeine, its jut the bubbly taste that I crave. When I've had enough of it I'll walk away and not look back until the craving starts again a few months later.

I thrive in organized chaos.....disorder is my middle name and while to you its disorder and clutter and piles of crap, to me its strategically hidden gold mines of wonderfully hoarded stuff.

Shoes....I have an addiction to them, and probably over 100 pairs by now.....but at the same time I hate to spend more than 75 on a pair unless I REALLY love them.....i.e. my Stuart Wiseman's that I bought in Chicago, or my Pumas and Birkenstocks......I love German shoes. my family well knows, I have a fascination with them.

Do you know how hard it is to think of 8 random facts that I've not already shared somewhere? Anyhow, continuing on with items 6,7 and 8

I have a fear of mice loose in the house.....but put them behind glass and its awwww....they are soo cute!

I love marker boards and the smell of the white board markers

And last, but not least......

Magnents......I love them.....I'll sit and play with them for hours. I have 8 small wall magnents stacked up on my computer stand that i play with while on telephone conference calls etc.

Now..........who to tag.......who to tag...... well it says 8, but I know many of your have already done lets tag...... Anita, Marvie, Jenny, Stacey, Yasmin, Mimi ..... and whoever else has not been tagged, consider yourself tagged....sheesh......finding 8 people is hard when you begin to think, okay, who might possibly play along, who has not been tagged already......blah balh blah....thats it, I need a drink.......of Coke!

Typical Leo traits! My son could very well be described the same way from no.3 to 8 ;)
Oh, and thanks for tagging me Kimberly...I will try, but I have never completed any meme, for lack of interesting things to say about me :p

Crap, you tagged me as punishment for not blogging much lately, didn't you? ;)

Hey, I used to have that same problem with my nails. For years and years, ok, more like decades. It all changed though when I started drinking more milk (yeah, how many times have you heard that! but it's true) My doc said calcium (somehow) helps with cramps, so I started drinking milk a lot. Anything to help with that! About the same time, I stopped fussing with fake nails. Next thing I knew, they were starting to grow. So I kept 'em filed nicely (you know, only going from outside in etc.) and let them sort of pick their own natural shape. I do use a clear strengthening sort of polish on them when they're short, but now other than filing weekly and slapping the clear stuff on 'em, I just let 'em do their thing. And now they grow! I've had them as long as they used to be with tips on =) Just be careful, I expected them to break like they used to (peeling, tearing, etc.) but now that they are strong, they break just like acrylics lol. And they are strong!

So the keys to nice nails, drink more milk, eat lots of veggies (I forgot about that above) and keep them filed so they don't snag on stuff. Before you know it, they'll be growing for you too =)
