Meme Tagged Again...and Loving It

Well, the fabulous SIL has Facebook tagged me to play the Random Share Meme. Of course, she thought enough of me to ask me to participate, which "requires" I do. I love it. (See number 15)

So here goes...

1. I love to daydream. Anywhere, anytime. Some call it a lack of focus, but that’s because I am not usually focusing where they think I should be.
2. I am sometimes considered a bit snobby. That’s probably because I am daydreaming or focusing on something else. Or sitting in the corner, observing.
3. I am afraid of falling. Not heights, but falling. I will climb up really high places, like my horse, the roof of my barn, the edge of a cliff. But don’t ask me to get down, without much deep breathing and mental games.
4. I like to learn new things, just wish I grasped them quicker.
5. It takes a lot of crap for you to get on my $hit list, but once you are there, kiss our relationship goodbye.
6. I am grateful that I have surrounded myself with others who are not so intolerant.
7. I try to live with this in mind: “NEVER throw the first punch; but ALWAYS throw the last one.
8. I hate discussing money.
9. I am learning to become “comfortable with being uncomfortable.”
10. I have the ability to listen to several conversations in a room or down the hall, or to tune them all out. Helps when the radio, television, internet, cd player and the dvd are all playing while I am typing or reading.
11. There are times, when I think something is so simple, I don’t get why no one else gets it. Conversely, there are some things that others find so simple that a two-year-old gets it and I can’t fathom how it works.
12. I do not stop at either of the stop signs near my house. (If you have ever seen them, you would not stop either.)
13. I LOVE football. College, professional, high school, Pop Warner. Doesn’t matter. But I can’t get into Fantasy football, because they don’t like defense. I love defense. KILL the quarterback. That’s my motto.
14. I love to travel. I could get in a motorhome tomorrow and never look back. (That is of course if there was someway to pay for food and fuel for said motorhome).
15. I procrastinate too much. Sometimes, it even pays off.
16. I cannot sing in tune with anyone. Keeping a beat is right behind that. Not even myself. The dogs howl whenever I start singing along with the cd player or radio.

Six Word Meme

As promised on Wednesday when I was tagged by the beautiful Bonnie, here is my six word meme.

Look up. Grab mane. Squeeze. FLY!!!!!!!

Photo will follow tomorrow.

Now, I am supposed to tag six additional blogs. Herein lies my dilemma. I don't know six other people who blog, besides those already tagged.

So, I am modifying the "rules": I am tagging a few regular closet readers (Hey there are some) to try it.

Ready, Set, Go:

Ron, Muriel, Loree, Lyn, Lynette and Manda.
