Howdy. We've moved from Cayce, but St. Elizabeth of South Rose Hill or Lizette de Waccamaw de Sud just don't do it for me.

8-Things Meme

So, Gashwin tagged me and Izzy and a few other folks - leaving me nearly no one to tag. That's OK, I've not yet opted to ask Izzy his five questions, either.

Here the background:

The rules are simple…Each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed. At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.
Here goes (I assume, as I try and decide what to write, that lots of this will be familiar territory)

1. Izzy and I have been friends during five presidential administrations, sweethearts-then-spouses during four. Yes, some of our stories go back to the Carter administration!

2. I really enjoy music. I love singing on Sunday AM, and I even enjoy rehearsals. Any chance to do harmony, and I'm there!

3. I write music (err, create songs, I don't play an instrument, so lots of it isn't written down in musical notation.) Mostly it's been heard by family. I'm working to finish a folky-type song for this weekend's wedding.

4. My middle name should have been "Volunteer."

Update: Before reading #5: Please note that items separated by semi-colons are separate and distinct and not possible related to adjacent items. Not hardly...

5. Short list of stuff everybody knows: I'm Catholic; I'm a convert; I'm an aunt; I'm really involved with my family; I have diabetes; we have a neurotic cat; I have a mostly new wardrobe; I love jewelry; I'm allergic to everything that smells nice, it seems, plus a few things that don't smell so nice; like Gashwin, I'm left-handed and extroverted; I work in Epidemiology; I'm a nurse practitioner; I have pretty good presentation and document layout skills; and did I mention the volunteering?

6. I've always loved photography and I'm excited to learn better how to use my new camera.

7. (Inspired by a news story I'm watching) I'm a regular blood donor. I have several gallon pins from the Red Cross, and I think I'm on their every-8-week speed dial.

8. (See #1) I'm incredibly lucky to have Izzy for a husband. He's creative, funny, brilliant, sincere, caring, godly, devout, loving, romantic, adventurous, considerate, and TAKEN. (Sorry gals!) We've been told we make a great team - I'm so glad we've had each other all these years.


That's it. I think Waldie and Baldman did this a ways back, so we'll read other tagees and let anyone who wants to consider themselves tagged.

"I'm allergic to everything that smells nice, it seems, plus a few things that don't smell so nice; like Gashwin"

You know, I missed that semi-colon the first time I read that! :-D

UltraCrepidarian said...

Yeah, I wondered that too. Was she saying Gashwin doesn't smell very nice? :-) Or just that she's allergic to him?

Congrats to you and Izzy. It does a heart good to see a couple married a good long while and still speaking to each other! :-)


St. Izzy said...

"Speaking to each other"? The reason I got into the blogosphere was so that I could read her blog and find out what's going on. Did she mention the volunteering?

Seriously, I don't know what I'd do without her. We DO make a good team. We don't always see eye-to-eye, but she can always make me laugh, and may be the only person who can.

Heather said...

I missed the semicolon too, thought it was hilarious, and then went back because I was sure you were too sweet for that.

St. Elizabeth of Cayce said...

OMG! Should have bulleted the list. I'd say "my bad", but it sounds like I made a few folks laugh this AM. I'll add a semi-colon caveat...
