I've Been Tagged

I've been tagged by the wonderfully talented Jann from A Vintage Heart and my dear and artistic friend Mary Beth from My Journey into Art.

The Rules of the Tag Game: 1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog. 2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird. 3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs. 4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog

Hmmm....random and weird.....

1. There is a radio and television commercial that airs where I live urging people to visit Michigan. Just the introduction to the commercial makes me well up! If I listen further (i.e. my husband doesn't tell me to cover my ears), I am in full-blown cry mode before I know it.

2. I am crazy about handmade soap and haven't used a bar of soap purchased from a store for years!

3. I have always loved birds and consider myself very blessed to live with three of them, a parrotlet and two cockatiels.

4. When I was young I couldn't pronounce my own name so called myself "Heddi Moppu". Some relatives still call me this!

5. I have a violent dislike for cooked celery...raw is okay!

6. My favourite books as a child were poetry books.

7. I don't like to pump gas and will go out of my way to find a Full Serve station...thus wasting gas (which is not advisable these days). I think I'm going to have to mend my evil ways!

I always have trouble just choosing a few people to tag in return so if anyone on my favourites list would like to do a little "sharing", please consider yourself "tagged".

Heddi Moppu?!?!? That's wild!!! My sister couldn't say my name and called me She She..but Heddi Moppu?!? It's precious!!!

As for the gas, I used to hate pumping my own too and went out of my way to be served..BUT...there are almost NO full serve stations left in this area!!!!

These are fun!! I love handmade soap. We had two cockatiels for years-Koko and Taylor. We loved them!

Hi Heather...oh what fun! I love reading some random info on you...the gas one had me on the floor....I am so bad that way too...I just send my husband to get gas...I don't think I have pumped gas in over a year...oh wow...pretty bad!

Heather, I love those crazy facts but my favorite (because I never noticed this before) is that you are a librarian! I love it! What an awesome job. We are library addicts around here. My 4 year old thinks we live there.
Hope you had a super weekend!! Oh, also I wanted to make sure you received your ATC. We had a little confusion at the post office.

This was great to read Heather, I laughed at Heddi Moppu!!! I'm still twittering while typing this!!!
Celery is a definite Uuugh for me raw or cooked!!
