Eight things about me

Jennie C. tagged me last week while I was away and I just found out.

First, the rules: For this meme, each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed. 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.

1. I am a news junkie. I prefer to start the day (after reading from a devotional and plugging in the coffee percolator) by reading a newspaper. Or two. Or more. If I can't get them in the morning, I'm content to read the papers later in the day. While we were in Virginia last week I had several blissful days in which I was able to procure 5 newspapers to read each day: The Washington Times, The Washington Post, The Free Lance-Star, The Wall Street Journal, and USA Today.

2. I prefer vanilla over chocolate.

3. I really like rules, directions, and maps.

4. Until I married Steve, I slept in a full-size bed with books covering all but a narrow space on the edge for my body. Now the books are stacked beside the bed and at the foot of the bed.

5. I enjoy going to the lake, but I rarely get in the water.

6. My "default mode" is sit-around-reading, so I'm thankful to have friends who invite me to do things with them.

7. I think of colors like numbers: cool colors (like blue or green) are odd-numbered; warm colors (like yellow or red) are even-numbered.

8. Being a Marine wife was one of the best things that God used to shape and refine me, and I would have loved for Steve to have stayed in longer. I miss it.

Hmmm... tagging others for this meme: Jeannine, Dy (I think Jennie tagged her, too), Marla , Meg , Tammy , Tracy , Jan , and Donna .

No, Beth - that's really strange! I just sent you an email. Please let me know if you don't receive it.

I know you're not mad; just kidding! *Ü* I did receive your email, but it immediately bounced back. Here is what the message says:
This Message was undeliverable due to the following reason:
Your message was not delivered because the return address was refused.

You know, Terry isn't receiving my emails at work, either. Can you ask Steve what he thinks??? And you can email me...I just can't seem to email you!

He's not here at the moment (work, and all that peskiness!), but I'm thinking he'll say you should check your settings. Still, I'll ask him tonight and try to find an answer for you. (How horrible to be silenced in cyber-space!)

Thanks Laura! I haven't been tagged in a long time. If you don't mind, I'll do this when I get home from vacation this weekend. :-)

Thanks for playing, Laura! I think I shall someday miss Army life, too, and you definitely find out what you're made of, but right now, I'd be happy to settle down for a while.
