Simply Seven

Both Tami and Bev tagged me for this "7 Things About Me" meme and since I can't sleep for some reason, (okay and when I was, I was dreaming about my plants - like what I was going to name them!) it seems like the perfect time to do this one. So here goes . . .

  1. It doesn't really matter how cold it is outside, I cannot sleep with socks on. I try going to bed with them on sometimes, but end up frantically peeling them off in the middle of the night.
  2. I have very dexterous toes, of which I am quite proud! I can pinch pretty hard with them, and they come in handy for picking things up off the floor or removing socks in the middle of the night!
  3. I have this penchant for exhausting subjects, be they books or topics or movies. I watch almost every part of a DVD, including the special features. I read mostly every part of a book, including the table of contents and bibliography. But that's not enough. I usually have to go on the Internet and read more about the author and see if they have a website and check out their other books. If it's a movie I really enjoyed, I might check to see what else the actors starred in. Etc., etc., etc.
  4. My sister and I both started dating our husbands in September, got engaged in February and got married in October (two years apart). And our initials went from DCK (me) and DAK (her) to DCP and DAP. Weird, huh?
  5. I never eat the last bite of a sandwich. Dunno why. It's driven my mom crazy all these years though!
  6. I am not really afraid of spiders or most bugs. I don't love 'em, it's just that I grew up out in the country and you kind of get used to grasshoppers flying in your face and spiders in your bedroom. I am the resident bug killer at our house.
  7. I am going to become an aunt again this fall, for the seventh time. Cool, huh?
Good thing this was just seven things. And here's my seven tags: Christina, Stacy, Tammy, Susanne, Becky, Gail and Katrina, if they so desire to reveal seven things about themselves. No obligation though!

I can NOT sleep with socks on either! And can pick up things with my toes, Don thinks it's very weird but I don't!
Have done this one a couple of times in the past and got tagged last week for it so did it then. It's here:

Fun to read yours Dianne! Neat to learn little tidbits about everyone.

I totally agree with the sock thing. If I'm freezing to death and wear socks to bed, you can be sure they're on the floor when I wake up the next morning.

I do the same thing with books, too. Before I even start the book, I read every single other part of it and look it up on the web. THEN I'm ready to read the book.

I'm the resident bug killer, too. I don't like it, but I am. Blech.

I'd already been tagged with "8 Random Things" and was in the process of tagging you! I figure we've already fulfilled our duties.

Susanne said...

Hee! I just posted this from being tagged by 2 others so if you come over I've got it up.

I'm definitely not a toe person. I can't even crosse my big toe over the one next to it. I hate socks in bed too!

Funny about the reading and movies.

I really like reading memes like these, and reading yours was no exception - I liked getting some more insight into you! I'm an exhaustive-type person too, but I'm also a sock sleeper in the winter. :)

Thanks for the tag, I'll be doing this one soon.
