I’ve been tagged!!

Holy smokes, I love being tagged.

And a while back, Wandering Nana (a private blogger) tagged me to write “6 unimportant things about me.”

Hm, that’s an interesting meme.

But since I’m feeling a bit on the dramatic side today, I’m actually going to write “6 crazy things about me” and do my absolute darndest to surprise y’all with at least one of them.  (Because even last time, I still didn’t surprise enough people…..)

So, here we go!!


1. When I was a teenager, I almost got killed by a herd of zebras.  (Okay, so “almost got killed” is a little strong, but I was definitely in danger of almost getting killed.  And that’s the truth!)


2. I was the only person ever known to use the chemistry room’s Emergency Eye Wash at my high school and was this close to going blind.


3.  When I was a kid, I rode to school one morning with a dead, bloated goat in the back of our van.


4. While I was growing up, I had a crush on all of my sisters’ boyfriends.  And all of my brothers’ friends.  (And with a family my size, that’s a lot of crushes!!)


5. In second grade, my class went on a field trip to Lake Tahoe and we were attacked by a swarm of yellow jackets.  The little buggers left me with 16 stings, a class record and an acquired allergy.


6. When I was a young teenager, I almost got run over by the Tahoe Queen dinner cruise boat.


So, there you have it!

(Please tell me you were at least a little surprised…..).


Okay, now it’s time for me to tag seven people:

Bye, bye book

Mommy threw away my book today.

She said she had to do.

That books are for reading, not for bathing in the toilet.

And that y’all thought it was the right thing to do.

So we said goodbye.

It made us sad, because Mommy and Daddy gave me that book for my birthday.

But Mommy said it’ll be okay.

Bye, bye book.


The Bubbers King

p.s. It was pretty funny to watch you sink.

p.p.s. I’ll always remember you.  Sorry it had to end this way.

The First Casualty

Behold the book.

The poor book that Bubbers happened to be reading one morning while I was taking a shower.

The same poor book that Bubbers was still clutching in his adorably chubby little grasp when he suddenly stood up and swung his cute Wooga belly around the corner of the bathroom out of my sight and headed towards the toilet…..

The same toilet that he discovered was not latched properly like I thought it was.

Then stealthily and swiftly, without an ounce of fanfare or even a splash…..

He drowned the poor book.

And it died.

A sad page-stiffening edge-opening death.

So now, my dear readers, I implore you for help.

And ask you the question that plagues my mind…..



Thank you.

Thank you from the bottom of my toilet.



Sorry about that title everyone.

I’ve never done this before and it’s a lot harder than it looks…..

And I’m trying to go fast, because my Mom doesn’t know I’m up here.

(She’s taking out the trash and I just know she’s getting suspicious and wondering why I’m being so quiet, so I’m making this real quick before she gets back—)

Hi, Mom!

Isn’t this neat?

I didn’t know I could climb up here–did you???

Hee, hee, hee….. Okay, I’m getting down now.

Bye, everyone!
