I've been tagged by Kathy M!
Kathy is such a sweetie, and we share a lot of similarities, gosh I hope she doesn't share these below.

Only for you Kathy!

Yes, this is 5 things about me you don't already know.

I did one of these along time ago and I think it was 7 things.
So if you are in the mood to know more, you will have to search way back on this blog.

Okay here goes

1. I eat breakfast at the computer almost every morning. (except this past week and a half I was away on vacation)

Yes, that is when I do my reading of emails, blog posts and forums. Even when hubby is home I still usually run off to the computer. It's my morning time, so please try to have your posts done early otherwise I miss it till the next morning. :) (kidding)

2. I have a peeve about internet grammar.

Some day I am going to do a whole blog topic on this subject. If it is anything more than LOL or ATC I haven't got a clue what you have written, please spell it out. It takes way longer for the person (like me) reading to figure out what you mean.
Also make sure you know when to use: their/they're/there or whether/weather misuse of these words can throw me right over the edge.
There is also the Canadian vs US versions of words like centre/center or colour/color or fibre/fiber or cheque/check
Far too many Canadians spell the words incorrectly because they use American spell check, so Canadians, no cheating..... use the Canadian versions because I know who you are! Oh and it is absolutely acceptable if Americans spell it their way, because they are American.

3. The sight of blood will make me faint.
I can not do a band-aid to save my life. Oh and what is worse, my hubby is a paramedic.

4. I have a parallel parking phobia.
I just can't do it without the fear of taking out someone's fender or hopping on the curb. I will drive around the block 5 times till I find a spot that I can just drive into, or I will park 3 blocks away and walk. I am the annoying person that leaves half a car length space in front of my car so I can get out if you boxed me in from behind.

5. I love butter tarts but I cannot make them. Oh I can make an artsy replica of a butter tart out of clay or something but you can't eat it. I can bake a fabulous pie, make cookies, make anything chocolate, I can preserve, and I can cook up a storm but no butter tarts.

There you have it! Five tidbits of information about myself that you didn't know before.

Now I am supposed to tag others to do the same. But, if I had to write 6 things about myself, the 6th would be that it is very hard for me to do this and then tag others to do it.

So all of you that are reading through this with one eye closed in hopes that you don't see your name on my tag list, don't worry I didn't tag you. (oh and you owe me for that, and I will gladly accept all lovely gifts of art and supplies in return for not tagging you)

If this isn't enough, I'll gladly answer your weird questions or at least give you the weird and extremely winded detailed answers when you ask ordinary questions.

That's it that's all!

You did it! You didn't have too...I know some people hate them. Well funny but we do share two things. The parking, ok will not, can not and do not p.park! Thank goodness I didn't have to do it for my drivers test, or I STILL wouldn't be driving. And I eat at the computer too. Every morning, even my dogs know, they go to p, I feed them, and up the steps we go!
Your sweet for playing!
