Pass The Goodies Please

A few days ago I was honored to receive an award from  Laura at  A Simple Happy Life.

I'm supposed to tell you 7 random facts about myself, tag people and pass the award on to 5 other bloggers.  7 facts.  hmmmmm  It took me a while to come up with 7 things.

1.  Five companies I have worked for have gone bankrupt and one Doctor died.  (I am the kiss of death to businesses... no pun intended Dr. Chris. Knowing him, he would laugh too.)

2.  I had a Girlfriend's weekend in Chicago with 2 friends where we attended an Oprah Show.

3.  I have managed 2 Weight Loss Clinics and  still struggle with weight.

4.  I love the turquoise water of the Caribbean and the Island of St. John.

5.  On my Bucket List is to go to Britain and tour the area where legend says King Arthur and Camelot  stood. (Tintagal Castle in North Cornwall)  I made a list when I was 30 before it was called a "Bucket List.   I think I can scratch off :  Wear a Bob Mackie" gown.  That's not gonna happen.

6.  I have not left the house without makeup since I was 14 years old.  Maybe younger.

7.  I have seen "The Phantom of the Opera"    on stage 5 times.  I'm always mesmerized by the music.

Now I will pass on this honor to 5 other bloggers.

It took me longer than it should have to think of 7 things.  Now I thinking of all kinds of quirky things that I'm sure most of you have too.  Things like:

Do you always sleep on the same side of the bed?  Not just at home, but in hotels, when you rearrange furniture,etc.

Can the food on your plate touch?   One of my daughter's can't.

I've gotta have Diet Coke, not Pepsi.

Do you shut the bathroom door when no one is home?  I do

OK,  over sharing. Now it's your turn.

Awwww...shuffles feet...Thanks!!

So what's your take on the new coke, and coke zero? :)

P.s., I have seen Phantom three times... once on Broadway in NYC. I love that opening montage/theme.

P.s.s., Someday I want to make it to Cornwall too... just to sit on the beach and look towards America and think, "What's over there?"

Isn't it the hardest to come up with those seven things?
I do always have to sleep on the same side of the bed. I won't be able to sleep all night if I'm not.
I'm not quite so picky about my food, but my husband likes to always start with his potatoes. And whether they're boiled, baked, or mashed, he will mash them up, spread them on his plate and butter and salt them. Then he eats the meat, then the vegetables. It works for him!
I prefer coke, but really don't drink much else than water or tea (except my morning coffee).
I always close the bathrooom door and it's usually locked too, even if no one else is home. Habit.

Perfect timing! I was just saying I need to update my blog today and now I have something to talk about. Thanks for thinking of me and I'm going to go visit each of my fellow honorees. So glad I am in your circle of friends.

Food should not touch..I have separate compartments in my stomach. Sometimes I use an extra bowl or two..sick I know.
Nope if I am home alone I never shut that bathroom door.
You have a great list..I enjoyed reading it!
I would like to go to the UK too and to where the water is torquoise blue:):)

Hi Missy. I popped over from Iggy's blog to check you out. What an interesting list. UK is on mine too, as well as MANY other places!

Kathy said...

Thank you very much for the award! I am honored. I'll pick it up and post my 7 things, shortly--along with the answers to your questions!

I'll start working on the post, but forgive me if there is a delay in posting, I'm on my way out of town (beach trip) for a bit, and will be away from my computer.

Thanks for following my daughter's blog, too. We're still trying to figure out the comment problem.

I've enjoyed all your lists. You were all faster than me in getting them out. It took awhile for me to come up with 7 things.

Deanna-thanks for stopping by. All are welcome. I can never have too many blog friends.
