Songs that make me happy and 8 things.

I was half way through creating this post when I was tagged by Denise to reveal 8 random things about me. So I am going to use the songs I was linking to as one of my things.
  • We have to post these rules before we give you the facts.
  • Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
  • People who are tagged write their own blog post about their eight things and include these rules.
  • At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged and they should read your blog.

1. I am crazy about collecting music - but I am very selective. I only want it if I love it. (Any suggestions for people I should listen to?) Here are the songs I was going to share with you today anyway:

This one makes me happy!

This one makes me dance!

This one makes me wriggle!

This one makes me laugh!

This one was sent to me by a friend!

This one makes me smile!

and this one is just plain wonderful!

2. I am scared of mushrooms. Seriously. Someone told me once that they don't need sunshine to grow and I have been suspicious of them ever since. I can only eat them if I can't SEE them. I am also scared of the dark but that comes from working at camp. I won't elaborate.

3. I'm weird about eating things in twos. If you offer me something to eat that is small like an M&M, I will always ask if I can have two - one for each side of my mouth.

4. I moved to England in October of 1998 with a bag, £300, and three nights in a hotel in London (thanks to my Mom!) I had no idea what was next. I ended up moving to the tiniest village in the world and meeting the man who I am now engaged to. Crazy old world.

5. I think I have told you this before, but I once made an apple pie dressed in a full pioneer costume on Breakfast Television.

6. I can flip my tongue over and I can wink one eye without scrunching it up - like a doll. People are usually a little freaked out by it.

7. I am very messy. I ALWAYS need to clean off my desk before I can get to work. The result of this is that I do most of my writing while sitting on the couch surrounded by my notes. My dream is to have a big office just for me with a drafting table, desk, supply cupboard and lots of inspiration all over the walls.

8. I LOVE beautiful things. When I was younger people used to come into my room just to sit and look at all of the things I had on my walls. I love ribbon and cards with quotes on them and pictures of flowers and glitter and... well... just everything that makes me smile and sigh. Now I have just one bulletin board and my desk that I can make chaotic with colour and beauty. But when we move - look OUT!!

Okay - so 8 people. The problem is that so many people have already had this. If I tag you and you have already done this, please forgive me! Please - no pressure!! XO I tag Jamie, Claudia, Jessie, Tori, Frida, Maddie, Bee, & Jen.

I love the image you've painted of your dream writing room...ahhh, a big ol' drafting table? perfect! :) And I love the image of your friends coming to sit in your room just to look at the pretty things on your walls. I think those walls were a natural extension of what is inside of you too.

I will work on my own 8 very soon. Thanks for the tag! :)

32 Flavours baby!!!!

Umm... i think you may need to give us more info about no. 5, missy... and i can do the winking thing too.. we can do it together when you're next here ;-) x

Frida said...

I love that version on Over the Rainbow! Thanks for the music.

Megg...words almost escape me, but here goes...clearly I have been hiding, as you will see from the fact that I have not blogged in three weeks. I am working to get out of a dark place right now, and trying very.hard. So, I see your lovely note and come over to visit, and read this very fun post...but here is the thing that got me the most...your link to Ani's 32 Flavors. I sat and listened to it with tears streaming down my cheeks. This song means so much to me and it is what based my new business concept around.

I guess that my point is that I believe that the universe sends us little signs, and for me, you reaching out and tagging me, coming over to visit and then me being reminded of all that is good by being sent a link to this wonderful song...a good sign and something that I very much needed right a big warm thank you!!!!

I remember no. 5 and I think that I was up early to watch you make that apple pie in your blue pioneer dress on BT. Thanks for reminding me of that.
Love, Susan xoxo

Michelle (a.k.a. la vie en rose) said...

oh girl...i do the same thing with eating...i won't say i always do it but i do like to have one for each side...i don't know just seems lopsided if both sides aren't chewing and enjoying the yumminess...

and speaking of music...thank you for my cds. i got them late last week but i failed to e-mail you and tell you thanks. i'm leaving town next week and i can't wait to take them with me and fully enjoy them while i'm on the road.

I can also do the wink thing and I can alternate between my eyes. Freaks my sister out every time.

Oh love....I have so enjoyed the cd-I could tell music means alot just by listening to it:)

I too was wondering how many people tried the winking thing:)

You are so damn sweet and amazing....loved the list baby

Denise said...

hi megg,

i love this list, especially the music and 3&4.
i think you've already read mine...#9 would read:
i have the best of intentions and i always follow through...but i'm absolutely terrible at guestimating how long it will take to translate my ideas into reality :-)
one sunny, summer care package FINALLY on it's way...i just hope it's still summer when it finds you.
