Tag! (not that noxious body spray)

9 dpiui — I’ve been feeling pretty awful.  For some reason the prometrium/hcg combo has given me quite the whollop with migrane, some dicey sleep, tummy troubles, doubling-over cramps, tears and rage.  I’m in a bad way girls.  Home from work.  I’ve worked on this blog for 10 minutes at a time for the last 2 days.  Ugh.  I hope there is a baby on the other side of this. 

The wonderful and AMAZING TABI tagged me.  Awesome!  Did you know that she’s been declared E for EXCELLENT?  I’ve known that she is excellent since I first started reading her, but then I saw her positive pee stick pillow.  (BTW, Can I have one?) I’ve got oatmeal brain, so tag guidelines help…and I tried to make half of it multimedia because I’m just that geeky, but I couldn’t get it to work and I’m not up for trouble shooting.

1) Link to the person who tagged you. (done!)
2) Post the rules.
3) Share six non-important things / habits / quirks about yourself.
4) Tag at least three people.
5) Make sure the people you tagged KNOW you tagged them by commenting what you did.

  1. When I was a kid, one of my little pleasures in winter was dipping buttered white toast into hot chocolate.  The combination of chocolate, bread and slightly salty butter was a gourmet delight.  Kind of a midwestern version of pain au chocolat.  I crave it to this day, even though I can’t remember the last time I actually bought a loaf of white bread.   
  2. I am a slightly cynical, snarky, relatively hip person, but I love going to Disney World.  For me it is a very easy vacation — easy to research, easy to do what you want when you want, good food if you know where to go.  It is impossible for me not to smile when I’m there.  It sucks that it hurts too much to go right now. 
  3. My favorite perfume ever was made by a company called “Smell This” — It smelled like lemon iced tea.  There is something about that smell that is bottled sunshine for me.  Bath and Body works had similar smelling lotions and potions before Christmas and I had trouble resisting them.
  4. I love The Thin Man movies.  William Powell and Myrna Loy are the coolest.  Their banter and interaction is so believable, I don’t know that there is a better on screen couple in any day and age. 
  5. My latest music obsession is Regina Spektor’s song “On the Radio”  I love the boppiness of it.  And this is the cutest video ever.  I can’t wait to track down a live show I can make it to.
  6. The writer’s strike is over and I’m super happy about it!!  I may have to wait a bit for Pushing Daisies to come back, but I have many episodes recorded.  Oh, and there is this super cute song done by the fantastic Kristin Chenowith.  She’s so adorable! I kinda wanna be her.

ooh.  Who to tag, who to tag….

WELL, I’m gonna tag my new friend Momlissa (make her feel welcome in blogland!), Emily at emilythehopeless (because she’s going through the start of a cycle and is recovering from a car accident and needs some love), and giantspeedbump (because she is alwaysalwaysalways there for me with insight and compassion.  blove.)


  1. awww you poor thing.. i hope it’s all from your little bean!! thanks for tagging me! life is a bit out of control lately. i did kind of a weak version of this tag recently. i hope that code just worked. if not i look like a loser. i may just have to think of 6 more things.. if i’m not creating some other health crisis. hehe.

  2. oh man i am a huge loser.. let’s try that again.. Text how about now

  3. Yeah, I thought I remembered you doing one recently….so feel free to skip.

    PS–I clean my dog and cat’s eye gorp too. I’m crazy obsessive about it.
