So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Me me me meme

I was tagged and it was really good. Oh wait, that is a different kind of tagged. This guy wouldn't tag me like that ... I'm not his type. *wink* Even though my blatant flirting has got to be getting old over there.

The Meme Rules:-- Post the rules, then list 8 things about yourself.--
At the end of the post, tag and link to 8 other people.--
Leave a comment at those sites, letting them know they’ve been tagged, and asking them to come read the post so they know what to do. Ok, just so you know, North Dallas Thirty, you are seriously fired.

Here is my list:
1. I own CDs by Eminem, Brad Paisley, Godsmack, Big T and the Bada-Bings, Nine Inch Nails, Johnny Cash, Will Smith and Justin Timberlake. I listen to all of them, too.

2. I hate to floss my teeth.

3. I have nightmares that my children are in danger, but they are always out of my grasp to protect them. One version always involves my children washing away from me in rushing water; the other involves the children running from me and into harm's way and I can never catch up with them.

4. I played competitive fast-pitch softball. One year, my team placed fourth in state.

5. I was in the top 10 of the Miss Fort Worth Teen Pageant when I was 15.

6. I was kicked off the JV cheerleading squad. Instead of being a social outcast, it actually boosted my street creds a small amount. I still managed to keep my Goody Two Shoes reputation, though.

7. I like reality TV. My favorites are Beauty and the Geek, Project Runway, Top Chef, Age of Love, Biggest Loser, Joe Schmoe, etc.

8. I'm 7.5 years older than my husband.

I don't think I have eight people to tag with this, so if you WANT to do it, please do it and let me know that you did and I'll come laugh and point, er, I'll come read your blog.

    LOL....I knew you would come through in the clutch -- or with a clutch, or whatever.

    And no, your flirting never grows tiresome....for some reason, I have always been endlessly fascinating to straight women -- and utterly clueless of when they're coming on to me. At least you give warning. :)

    But I am curious to know....for what, exactly, did you get kicked off the cheerleading squad?

    It is a very long explanation, but when I was heading into the ninth grade, we were at cheerleader camp at SMU. It was about 10 p.m. and there were boys serenading girls outside the dorm building. They were cute and funny. They told us that their girlfriends were on the second floor (we were on the fifth) and asked if we would let them in to surprise the girls. We were 14 and stupid and let them in.

    The camp organizers freaked out. And, now that I'm an adult, I see why. We didn't know the boys, we didn't know if their intentions were just to say hi or if they planned to come in and kill everyone. But, we were 14 and there was no ill intent in our actions. Had the cheerleader sponsor or the organizers known me, they would know that I was just a very naive girl who wouldn't do anything like that. Anyway. So, they kicked us out of camp and the sponsor kicked us (me and one other girl) off the squad. I actually got a letter from the sponsor at the end of that next school year after she had me in English all year - (I was just going in the 9th grade, so she didn't know me at all when the camp occurred). She apologized for booting me off the squad and said had she known what a nice girl I was, she would have realized I was telling the truth that it never dawned on me that what I was doing was dangerous and that I didn't mean any harm. *shrug*
