Damn. I'm it.


Yep. I've done been got. So here goes nothing...

Step #1 - Link to the person who tagged you.

Easy. It’s one of my fave peeps, Miss Perpstu.

Check.

Step #2 - Write Five Fun/Interesting Facts about yourself. This gives fellow bloggers (and your readership) a chance to actually get to know you better.

Hmmm. OK.

1. I hate snakes. Snakes are the debil -- just read Genesis and the story of Adam and Eve in case you had any doubts. Can’t even stand to see them on TV, much less in person. Needless to say, I don’t watch a lot of Animal Planet. At the park where I work out with my trainer, there's a nature exhibit right next to the ladies room, featuring not one, not two but THREE snakes that are common to the area. I close my eyes and literally run into the potty when I'm there -- and always have to shudder when I leave. It's awful... they are the debil, I'm telling you.

2. I’d not a big fan of chocolate. I don’t dislike it, but I also don’t go out of my way to find it -- no chocoholic tendencies here. Now, caramel and/or pralines are a complete other story... a praline is a little bit of heaven as far as I’m concerned. There are few things I won't do for one of these...mmmmmmm...

3. I can’t drive a stick shift. I have a recurring nightmare in which there’s some sort of emergency and I’m the only one who can drive to safety and the only vehicle available is a stick. I also have a recurring nightmare about trying to drop a class in college before the drop period ends and not being able to find the administration building. Thank goodness the two scenarios have never collided into one Super Nightmare. Yet. Paging Dr. Freud, Dr. Sigmund Freud...

4. I would rather speak in front of a group of 100 people than go to a cocktail party where I know only one or two folks. Public speaking = love. Small talk = eeek.

I really am a shy girl at heart...

5. My happy place is my kitchen, small and overcrowded as it might be. I love to cook and read about cooking and think about cooking. Food porn = hot, hot hot. My home library has well over 100 cookbooks. However, I would NEVER want to be a professional chef or caterer, though. I’m content being a fairly proficient home cook, thank you very much. Although I do wish my knife skills and grilling technique were better...

Check.

Step #3 - Tag Six Other People and link to their blogs. Then let them know you’ve tagged them by twittering them or leaving a comment on their blog.

You know what -- I’m in a free-wheeling kinda mood today. No tagging. Wheee! Y’all are on your own.

How’s that for living on the edge...

#2 makes it official. You are indeed a communist.

But you're my communist.

Now let's go shopping for some evening-vear. We've got ourselves a ball to attend in January.

LOL, mrs bronsont has the same fears, snakes and stick shifts. Tried to convince her Vicky (the black snake living around our house) was good and kept rats and poisonous snakes at bay, but alas, she had the yard guy catch and haul Vicky off!

Hmmm, so you and I share #1, and #5, I also cannot stand snakes but I can cook and then some! I have a goodly sum of cookbooks as well, I am afeared to count 'em. I might need an intervention if I did!!
