7-Things Meme

***Updated to add... there's nothing new here, folks... If you should see a gazillion "new posts" on whatever blogline-type of software you use... just know that I'm still tinkering with my template and making a few minor adjustments. That's all.***

Now, back to our regularly scheduled program...

Beth at Life With Two Little Vikings tagged me with the "7 Things" meme... which was pretty hard to do, because I've already done similar memes, if not the same meme a time or two, in which I wrote a full expose of my life each and every time. Coming up with new things that you don't know about me already was tough! (after all, my life is an open book on this here blog!)

Here are the rules:

1. Link your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Here are my 7 Things:

1. I hate horror movies, movies with too much suspense, and especially, movies with a dark spiritual undertone. They leave me feeling unsettled in my spirit. Let's not even talk about the bad dreams afterwards!

2. I love beef. I could live off of beef for the rest of my life and be quite happy. I craved it when I was pregnant, and now Hunter loves beef too. He calls it "meat" -- which it is -- but so are other things, and if you give him something other than beef, he usually won't eat it.

3. I adore Italian food -- adore it -- but I am a simple girl, and could eat spaghetti and meatballs each and every time I went to an Italian restaurant. So in essence, I'm a cheap date.

4. When I was little, I used to love peanut butter and dill pickle sandwiches. Now that I'm all growed up ... I still love them.

5. I am obsessed with details... for example, I once found a dent on my husband's truck. It was in an odd location, and I was stressed about telling him about it. So, I called my sister-in-law and was explaining the dent to her, and trying to tell her how long it was. I actually took my ruler out to measure the span between my fingers so I could get the measurement exact. I'm sure it annoys other people, but it makes total sense to me.

6. I hate change. Hate it, and will buck it. Until the change happens, at which time I usually love it and embrace it. Which leads me to...

7. I will argue passionately and tirelessly about something I am certain is right but know nothing about... politics, music, religion, art, movies, etc. And when I'm proven wrong by the exasperated receiver of my argument, I simply shrug it off and say something like, "oh, okay" which exasperates them even more. For example, I'll argue passionately about the fact that a particular song on the radio is sung by Mercy Me, and I will insist and insist and insist as though I am completely convinced of the fact. My husband, who is actually very good about knowing the sound of people's voices, will argue back that it isn't. And when the radio announcer says that it is Jeremy Camp and not Mercy Me, I'll just shrug and say, "Oh, okay" which totally deflates the disagreement and leaves him feeling even more frustrated.

So there are 7 things about me. How in the world will I find 7 people who haven't done this yet??? Let's just put it this way... if you haven't done this Meme yet, or if you need a post that doesn't require a lot of thought, consider yourself tagged. Leave me a comment if you're posting this Meme!!!
