Chain mail, shamain mail, I'm going in

I got tagged for a meme yesterday. A meme is equivalent to a chain letter for bloggers. I was secretly thrilled…. it made me feel like I had finally been accepted by the huge, and I mean HUGE, blogging community.

I also, in the spirit of full disclosure, have to say that when I get chain e-mail, I typically read it, without opening attachments, and then promptly delete it.

We got a nasty virus from one once, totally fried our PC. Since then, chain letters scare the bejezzus out of me. We have a Mac now and are practically immune (No, I’m Lloyd, that’s the moon - inside joke for WK and JM - MST3K rules!) from viruses so I don’t really need to worry about opening these messages. Old habits die hard.

To all my friends who have sent me a chain letter but never got it back, I do love you, I am a patriot, I love Jesus and it’s not you, it’s me. I’ll try to be better about responding in the future.

Back to the meme… Renée at Empty Nest Mom tagged me. She sent her only daughter off to college this year too. Here are the rules:

1) Link to the person that tagged you, and post the rules on your blog. 2) Share 7 facts about yourself.
3) Tag 7 random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs.
4) Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
5) Then tag 7 innocent bloggers.

Seven things about me…

1. Sometimes I will tell people that I am slightly older than I really am just to hear them say “No way you’re that old. You look great!” Vanity thy name is Tara.

2. When I read a book it’s to be entertained. I want to escape into another place, another time or another reality. I don’t want to be intellectually enriched. Authors I have been escaping with lately: Neil Gaiman, Christopher Moore, Frank and Brian Herbert, Ray Bradbury, Patricia McKillip, Anne McCaffrey, and China Miéville.

3. I am a tea drinker, never really learned to like coffee. I buy almost as many different kinds of tea as I do books. My favorites for the moment are: Dessert Moose Munch from Harry and David, Good Hope Vanilla a rooibos blend from The Republic of Tea, and Tazo Chai.

4. I have actually laughed out loud during a funeral. Shortly before my grandmother passed away I had a serious chat with her about my reluctance to attend church. I let her know that organized religion had not worked well for me, but that I did believe in God and had been baptized. She was greatly relieved that I was not going to Hell. At her funeral, her pastor made an altar call during the eulogy. For those who were raised in the Baptist Church, you know what that is. It was so like her to reach out to people, even from her grave, to invite them to Christ. It reminded me why I loved her. I just had to laugh. I miss you Grandma Jessie!
5. I love my blue tooth! Sometimes I wear it just so I can talk to myself and not look completely weird.

6. For the past 8+ years I have been a student of taekwondo. I have attained the rank of third degree black belt and am a certified instructor. It is something that I am very proud to have accomplished. It is also very empowering to know that I can literally kick someone’s butt if I have to defend myself.

7. I can eat almost anything if I can put salsa on it. Forget chocolate, I love hot and spicy.
