I've Been TAGGED!

It's summer... who is up for a game of tag?? Dayna already let me have it. So jump in!

Here are the rules:

A. Each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves.
B. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed.
C. At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

8 Fun Facts to Know and Tell About Moi:

1. I talk to dogs, dead people, and myself.
2. My eyes are a freaky shade of green and have a bright yellow ring around the pupil that frequently causes arguments. I have actually invited people to touch my eyeball to prove there was no contact lens on it. When I was little my mother told me it was "the devil coming out of me." (Working that out in therapy.)
3. I wrote a book with another person that was a collection of emails exchanged on "life in general" in the 90s. It still has a perfect score on Amazon.com. (You can even still buy it... Here). It was long before blogs, when the internet was something "new and exciting."
4. I used to be the "Movie Muffin," voice of Reel Reviews. I did a weekly radio show on movies with reviews and light commentary.
6. I own over 700 cameos, some rare antiques... some just goofy, like the nail clipper with a cameo on it.
7. I've lost over 125 pounds in 3 years but it happened so slowly and I'm still so chubby I have had to save my old license to prove it. People see the two headshots side by side and freak... very often they are people who see me every day and barely noticed.
8. Ahmed and his family almost never call me by my given name. They all call me "Badjia," or "Ahmed's Badjia," or "the Badjia." Badjia is a very old word used in parts of Kurdistan. There is no direct translation; it means something beautiful because it is rare. I blush whenever anyone asks me about it, but I secretly treasure this little endearment.

K... off to tag the following peeps:

Diana,
RG,
Tawny,
Amanda,
Cassidy,
Ciar,
Loribelle, and
Wendy.

YAY!! You did the taggy thing! Thank you!

I still want to see photos of the cameo collection...collect vicariously and all that :)

And I love 'Badjia'. That's beautiful. I love pet names, which sort of seems a silly thing to admit.

And I love love love the new look. The purple is gorgeous,and I totally want those shoes! Thanks for playing, Chrissy!
