8 Random Things

I have been tagged by Kristen to do the 8 Random Facts Meme. The rules as I understand them are:

~I have to post these rules before I give you the facts.

~I share eight random facts about myself.

~At the end of the post, I tag eight more bloggers (Man, that's a lot!)

~I then leave a comment for my taggees, telling them they're tagged.

~And I'll go ahead and try to make these Random Facts here things that you may not already know about me.

So here I go with the randomness.

1. I am moderately germophobic. This is mostly in relation to public restrooms, restaurants, and my kids' pee.

2. I have anxiety issues when meeting new people or going into unknown or new situations.

3. I am a very big Elvis fan, but I don't have tons of memorabilia or anything. I just love his music, and yes, even his movies. Viva Las Vegas is my favorite Elvis movie, and An American Trilogy is my favorite Elvis song.

4. Big Daddy and I lost our first little house (duplex) in a fire. It was scary and traumatic.

5. I would love to get a tattoo, but I'm afraid of the pain, and even more afraid that the artist would do a bad job and I'd be stuck with it.

6. I am completely in love with Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper. Or addicted. Whatever.

7. I hope that one day they actually create a virtual reality machine like in the sci fi books. And that I can afford it. I have two VR wishes: To sit at my grandmother's table and talk to her while she makes banana pudding. And to go see Elvis Presley at the Las Vegas International in the early 70's. With Big Daddy.

8. I can't stand for anything sticky to be on me, especially on my hands/fingers. Drives me crazy.

Okay, so there you have it. Eight random, and somewhat weird things about me. So who do I tag? Gah! How about anyone who reads this and needs some blog fodder.

And will you do me a favor, and leave me a comment if you identify with any of my randomness? So I don't feel quite so bizarre?

Oh I DETEST sticky. UGH.

Sorry to hear about the fire. That would be terrifying. Did you lose everything?

I always wanted a small shamrock tatoo but never lived out my fantasy.
Also, I love diet cherry vanilla DP. So, I guess we are both are weird together. LOL!

I am addicted to Diet Dr Pepper. I can't go one day without it. I go nuts. I freak out.

Thanks for playing!

I'm a big enough Dr. Pepper fan I've avoided their Cherry Vanilla just because I know I'd never be able to stop drinking it. I like pop but only in moderation.
