Meme Monday 5/5/08

My Weekend Recap will be up later in the afternoon. I'm sick so I'm moving slowly today.

Storyteller over at Small Reflections, passed this sweet award out to her readers this week in honor of her 200th post. Congrats on the 200th post Storyteller and thank you so much for the award.

Now onto a tag. Tanja over at Three Moody Cuties tagged me for the 3 Random Things about myself meme.

Here are the rules:
1. Post three random things about yourself.
2. In your post, link to the person who tagged you.
3. Tag at least five other bloggers. Let them know you've tagged them by commenting on their blog with an invite to participate.

1) I don't remember the last time I made my bed. I think I'll make it tomorrow(tonight being Thursday 5/1/08) I got in this habit of not making my bed because someone was always in my bed and I couldn't get in there to make it. I really do enjoy a nicely made bed.. Love everything about it.. BUT When DH works nights and sleeps in it all day, and then when he wakes up about dinner time I figured what is the point I'll be climbing into it soon enough. Though the last 3 weeks he has been working days so I have no reason why I haven't made my bed.. I guess the thought just never crossed my mind.. I'm never in my room to think about it except when I'm sleeping. So tomorrow my bed will be made.

2) I have a craving for strawberry pretzel crust dessert.. I'm trying to lose weight yet I can't seem to get this desert out of my head and taste buds..

3) While growing up my sister and I use to fight over cloths.. While I may be the oldest by 2 years she was bigger then me and I'm sure could have kicked my butt. Our bedroom were upstairs at my parents house.. and one night while we were in high school I took one of her shirts to wear that night in which she had demanded I give it back.. to which I said no.. LOL.. I don't remember all that went on.. but it ended with her holding me by my ankles upside down over the stairs.. If I recall.. I took the shirt off and gave it to her after that.

There ya go.. 3 very random things about me.

Now for the tag part.. I'll tag Jen @ Fox Family Fun The Miss Elaine-ous Life

Found this over at Our Happy Happenings and thought I would see if I was obsessive.. guess not LOL.

You Are 0% Obsessive

You're less prone to obsessive thoughts than the rest of the world...

While you do get hung up from time to time, you're excellent at clearing your mind.

Found this one at Melanie's blog also.

Your Five Factor Personality Profile


You have medium extroversion.

You're not the life of the party, but you do show up for the party.

Sometimes you are full of energy and open to new social experiences.

But you also need to hibernate and enjoy your "down time."


You have medium conscientiousness.

You're generally good at balancing work and play.

When you need to buckle down, you can usually get tasks done.

But you've been known to goof off when you know you can get away with it.


You have medium agreeableness.

You're generally a friendly and trusting person.

But you also have a healthy dose of cynicism.

You get along well with others, as long as they play fair.


You have low neuroticism.

You are very emotionally stable and mentally together.

Only the greatest setbacks upset you, and you bounce back quickly.

Overall, you are typically calm and relaxed - making others feel secure.

Openness to experience:

Your openness to new experiences is low.

You're a pretty conservative person, and you favor what's socially acceptable.

You think that change for novelty's sake is a very bad idea.

While some may see this as boring, many see you as dependable and wise.

Great randomness! Only... now I'm craving that dessert, too. And I am also trying to lose a few more pounds before our beach vacation. Have a great day!

Courtney said...

I hope you are feeling better soon. I took the obsessive quiz and I am 44% obsessive. I don't know how you are 0%. I admire you for that.

Phyl said...

I love that desert, too:). About making the bed...I LOVE a made up bed to crawl into and had stopped making mine for the same reasons as you. Now I do it as a gift to myself cos it makes me smile. Even if I am just gonna crawl right into it. Somehow, its more comfy when I mess it up for

I love strawberry pretzel dessert! YUM!

Kristi said...

I never made my bed growing up and I still don't. My husband is a little bugged because I don't make the boys make theirs either. I figure if the toys are picked up and the room looks neat, the bed is just over the top.

Elaine A. said...

Thanks for the tag! I will do it one day this week.

You are 0% obssesive?? That's awesome! I took the quiz and only checked 2 of the boxes and it said I was 8% obssesive. Some of the things listed on there are a little crazy!!

I like the personality thing too, I will have to check that one out later.

Melanie said...

Loved your random facts. I never did have to fight over clothes, since I had 2 younger brothers ;)

And 0% obssesive? WOW!!

Have a grrrreat week my blogger buddy!!

Heather said...

I have pretty much been missing in bloggy land, but I will get working on this!

The 3 random things about you are so funny. I can relate with the sister-wardrobe brouhaha... I have 2 sisters and there are just times...

I am guilty too. And there are times they are the ones sneaking clothings, too.

Lisa said...

The dessert sounds so yummy :)
I agree with your comment on staying up late--it is great 'alone' time :)
Off to check out those quizes!

My MIL calls it pretzel salad. I had never had it until after I got married - very yummy!

Well, I am 12% obsessive and completely neurotic! Thanks a lot for making me face the truth. ;)
