We've been double-tagged!

First, Diane tagged The Typist, then Molly tagged me. So, we're going to play together. Here are the rules:

1. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves. 2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.

There were 2 more rules about tagging other bloggers, but lots of people and dogs we know have already played. So, if you want to tag yourself, feel free, and let us know in the comments if you play!

The Typist's turn:

1. I've felt less than stellar all day today. Didn't even want to blog over coffee this morning. No fever or anything, though, so I think I'm just worn out from the week's gallivanting.
2. My Second Knitting Project Ever is at 96.5% completion. Pictures forthcoming.
3. I like snacking on uncooked pasta. Saw my mom do it once while she was cooking macaroni, asked for some myself, and have been hooked for at least 25 years now.
4. The summer before 5th grade I took a two-week cake decorating class, partly because I was pretty sure it meant I got to eat frosting. And I was right.
5. I bought a used piano recently. Needs tuning. Also, I haven't played in oh, 24 years.
6. I'm left-handed, but pretty much only for writing and percussion. Oh, and batting, which I don't do very often.
7. On Wednesday, my college roommate left me voice mail saying she just saw someone who looked very much like me boarding a plane at Home State's Capital City Airport. I called her back to tell her it wasn't very much like me, it was me, but by the time I landed and got the message, her plane was in the air. We finally caught each other and had a good laugh about it a couple of hours later.
8. On Tuesday, I was working a hallway display table at a conference and discovered that the person at the table next to me was also a RevGalBlogPal! Unintentional Meetup! Here we are Against A Brick Wall:

Cub's turn:
1. When I first got my family, I looked like this:

2. When The Boy first got our family, I wouldn't let him up on my couch. I got over it, though.

3. I have a wavy bit of fur on my hindquarters. It wasn't wavy until it grew back in, after those crazy people at the special vet shaved it off.

4. Today we got to go for a walk down the block to the building with the Treat Window. That's where The Alpha and The Typist hand over a slip of paper, say my name, and get a white paper bag. The Boy and I get really big Milk Bones and we eat them right there under the Treat Window. Then we look up again to see if we might get more.

5. When thumb-havers sing "Happy Birfday" into the phone, I like to bark along.

6. I like a freshly-mown yard. It's better for doing business. I have been known to put my business on hold if the grass is too tall.

7. I can sometimes be a bit of a priss.

8. I don't fall for the offer to lick the lid from the Frosty Paws anymore. I know the thumb-havers are hiding the whole cup behind their backs. The lid isn't worth my time -- make with the Frosty Paws already!

I am so jealous of your meet-up!!!

Molly said...

Dear Cub,
I am prissy, too. All nice girls are a little prissy. I don't care to do my business on wet grass. This can be inconvenient, but we must maintain our standards.
I wish I could visit your Treat Window.
Your friend,

Great picture Typist! I hope that you are feeling better!

And Cub you were so tiny!!

There must be some sort of reunion/meet-up vibe in the air at that airport. The last time I flew through there, I bumped into a former coworker I had not seen since 1982.

Songbird, I think I've now met 8 RGBP ring members, and talked to another one on the phone!

Molly, you're so cute! And what high standards, too.

Yes, Mindy, Cub was teeny tiny. I used to carry her under my arm like a football...

Zorra, I think you might've been talking Austin, but I meant Original Home State -- college roommate is preparing to move back there from Houston. But yes, some airports do have that vibe!

Linda said...

Hey! It was great to meet you. Glad you posted the pick. I deleted it off my phone, and apparently deleted the e-mail I sent to myself with the picture on it. I'm going to do something about the meet up tomorrow.

zorra said...

No, I meant your Original Home State--neighbor to my Original Home State.I've never had anything interesting happen to me in the Austin airport--just in Austin itself!

DogBlogger said...

Ha! Too funny, Zorra!

Diane said...

Dear Cub -- I would like to learn about Frosty Paws! My Thumb-havers are pretty clueless. I hardly ever get anything interesting like that! Though (and I hate to brag) I do occasionally get a piece of liver or a chicken heart.

Diane said...

Oh -- Scout forgot to sign her name...I would also like to say that I am not quite done with a knitting project... and have fun with the piano!

I have a wavy bit of fur on my hindquarters. It wasn't wavy until it grew back in, after those crazy people at the special vet shaved it off.

I have backside-fur, too. Packlady cuts it now and then, even though I want to keep it.

Love your list(s)! I'm also way jealous of your meetup. Great photo!
