Shit I'm it

I had just figured out what “tagged” meant when it happened to me. Stella of Paint Floats tagged me on Friday, which requires me (by law!) to reveal seven random and personal things about myself and then to pass it onto others.

1. My feet have very high arches.

2. I’ve been to Carnivale in Rio, but I can’t samba. I can, however, drink caprinias.

3. My poor gecko is dying of old age. We've debated the ethics of gecko euthanasia but probably won't do anything as long as he's able to eat. His name is Gilda (named before we figured out how to sex a gecko).

4. I thought I would like gardening, and when I look at my crappy yard I wish I did, but I don’t.

5. I live by railroad tracks. It's annoying and cool.

6. My basement is full of old computers that my son said he was going to sell on ebay, but he hasn’t.

7. In my book group the other night, four of us didn’t like Away by Amy Bloom, and three of us did. Only one of us didn’t like the wine.

And now is the time on Sprockets when we dance. I tag Anna Cox at purtygirldesigns, missfire, cheerup cherup, and Karessa and Gene at thescenicroute.

Thanks for the morning laugh!

I used to have a basement full of old computers, too... but they stayed in the basement when we moved, thankfully!

Mmmm, caprinias :)

Send my love to your little gecko!

How exactly DO you sex a gecko? Sounds complicated. I had Giant Millipedes once, named Crockett and Tubbs. No idea what their genders were. Thankfully I didn't end up with 100's more.

Thanks for the laugh this morning, and the Tag. Check me out!!

Sexing a gecko has something to do with bumps on the underside or something like that--nothing internal anyway.

Thanks everyone for visiting.

Oh, railroad tracks would make me want to find a rope!

I got tagged today too! And now it's fun reading other people's tag comments!

Love it! Dude, from now on you are my favorite taggee (?). Don't worry, I don't get tagged very often (read: practically never).

Very fun reading your list. Give that sweet gecko a juicy kiss (on the lips) from me (after drinking caprinias, of course)!


Callooh Callay said...

Thanks, everyone.

Stella, thanks again (I think). It was fun, but don't think you need to tag me again soon!

Loved the comment about your book group! So fun to have "discussions" when somebody or somebodies didn't like the book!

Callooh Callay said...

Julia, yes, it was much more fun than complete agreement (as long as the book is still worthy of discussion, which this one was).
