Tag; You're It!!!

Copy and paste, and answer the questions! You have been tagged!!! I got this from Because I Said So.

Favorite person (outside family)?
Outside family?!? There are others out there?!? OMG who knew??? LOL Okay that's a hard one to answer. There are actually several: Christine, Bud, Tracey, Linda, Marie.

Favorite food?
Ribeye steak, lobster, chocolate, ice cream, M&Ms. (Yes, that IS too food . . . )

Quirks about you?
I don't do puke (mine or anyone else's); I hate the way cotton feels when you pull it apart (it squeaks; didn't you know?!?); If I could I'd wear flip flops every day of my life (when I wasn't going barefoot); I hate shoes (but I love to buy them!!!); I have enough bath/shower products to open my own Bath & Body Works; it drives me crazy to see grammatical errors on things (like signs in stores, labels, painted on cars, marquees, etc.); I like to walk on new or freshly vacuumed carpet; I hate the smell of tires (when I go into a tire store I get instantly nauseous); I have to have at least a sheet covering me when I lie in bed even if its 100 outside otherwise I feel exposed, somehow; I love to watch shows on TV where people win things or get things free (like Extreme Home Makeover or Deserving Design) because it makes me feel really happy for them; and I have to cover all the clocks, cable boxes, and anything with an LED at night because I can't sleep unless it's totally dark. I know; I've crossed right on over from "quirky" right into "weird." LOL

If you could be a fly on the wall, where?
I'd rather be an electronic monitoring device, but I guess that would have to be . . . hmmm. Probably wherever Osama bin Laden is hiding out, so I could tell the CIA and they could find him and destroy his organization. You know . . . world peace!

Four words: Dansko shoes (I know; I said I hate shoes, but you HAVE to wear them now and again, and these are some of the BEST I've ever had on my feet!!!) and Spa Day. Massage, mani, pedi, facial . . . the works!! Ahhhhhhhh . . .

Do you agree or disagree with the recent article that reported that blogs are authored by narcissists?
Other people write blogs???

Why do you blog?
Because I'm a narcissist. Aren't you paying attention?!?

Who are you tagging?
I'm tagging no one because there are people out there who do not like to play tag. Sooo, anyone who wants to copy and paste this and answer the questions, knock yourself out. If you don't want to, then don't. I don't care, because it's all about me, anyway.
