Ollie Ollie Oxen Free!!!

Alright... it took me enough time but I've been tagged by the lovely Talei of Musings of an Aspiring Scribe and I have not yet passed it on. BUT! I have the perfect excuse!!!! I've been on blog vacation (just look at the beautiful pictures I've been posting for the past few weeks and see what you've been missing by not tagging along!) and (in the real world) I've been working the last nine days with one day off (does that make sense? I worked 5 days- had one day off and then worked 4 more days) and I could only just bring myself to do a little writing that day. Nothing has gotten done- dishes are piled high, house needs vacuumed and the laundry is done but needs hung up so I haven't had time to play tag. BUT! having made my excuses I am adding a caveat to the game that appplies to the rest of the players (which I am glad Talei didn't do to me or I would have been doing this) so you better read to the end to see what happens to the loser... 

 1.  Do you think you're hot?
I am ze locksmith of love, no? (Who did I steal that quote from and you win... something)
2.  Upload a picture or wallpaper you're using at the moment.
I am (illegally- did I say that???) using a picture of a talented artist named  Marth de Poo.  The picture is called 'Francis Street'.

3.  When was the last time you ate chicken meat?
Sunday- Quesadillas! 

4.  The songs you listened to recently.
I wake up with a "theme song" each morning that I must have running through my head during the night. Sometimes it sticks with me all day- sometimes not. Here are a few that I often wake up with: 

Aimee Mann: Red Vines
Bird York: Wicked Little High
Melissa Ethridge: Fearless Love
Dido: Don't Believe in Love

5.  What were you thinking as you were doing this?
That I have waited way toooooo long to get this done!

6.  Do you have nicknames?  What are they?
Just a few: as a kid my cousin called me Donut, m
y brothers called me Nette, friends have called me "D" a few dared to called me Danny- about once. And some real morons called me Damn-it. LONG STORY but it's what happens to kids in really restricted private Christian school environments. 

7.   Tag eight blogger friends.
Ann Best
Donea Lee
Lisa M Potts

Who's listed as No.1?   Ann Best! She's been tagged recently but I'm going to tag her again with the hopes that you will all go visit her and wish her the best as she gets her book underway. Congratulations Ann!!!! 
Say Something about No.5.  Trish, it was a pleasure finding a kindred spirit! 
How did you know No.3? I met Alberta in the Crusader Challenge- we were in the same group together. It has been interesting to learn about her disability and how she has adapted in order to write. 
How about No. 4?  Patrick  was also in the Crusader Challenge. I have found him to be a witty and thoughtful blogger.
Leave a message for No.6. Can't wait for the Running of the Roses next year, Lisa!   
Leave a lovey-dovey message for No.2.  "come wiz me to ze Casbah - we shall make beautiful musicks togezzer!" Did I mention Pepe Le Pew was my hero? (Hope you can sing Donea- 'cause I can! And that's it-- there will be no real lovey dovey stuff.    
Do No.7 and No.8  have any similarities? As most of my blogging friends- they love to write I met them early on in a blogfest but perhaps more importantly they enjoy life and having a good laugh! Such Fun!!! 

Now here's the rub: In the real game of tag the last one caught was IT! Well you've all been tagged so the last one to post your list gets to include either an embarrassing picture of yourself or your most embarrassing moment - you get to choose. 
*shew, now I can head back to the beach*


  1. You got me you sneaky devil....

    Ooooo you pics are gorgeous. I miss Key West so much. I haven't been there in years. I go to Florida at least once a year but I never seem to go that far south.

    My next trip I've got to do Miami and Key West.

    Hemingway's house is SO stunning. It looks like you had a great time!

    I was tagged last week.... twice in one day. I guess I'm slowing down. LOL. But I'll get to it soon.


  2. Arrgh I've been tagggged! Hehe. This is the first time for me, so I'm quite excited :P I'll get around to doing this asap!

  3. Woke up to your tag, without coffee I might say. Can you say shock?
    Am working on the loser thing since I''m so far behind last is confused with first! :0)

    Have a great weekend!

  4. Haha! Great answers. That's a very pretty wallpaper, dear friend. And, I love Dido and I recall playing Melissa Ethridge's first album, over and over! Fab ladies.

    Hope you're enjoying le beach! *clink* :) x

  5. It's amazing the nicknames kids can come up with! BTW, I love Dido and Melissa Etheridge too.

    Have a great weekend!

  6. These meme's are wonderful tools to get to know each other more with a fun twist. I enjoyed reading your answers.

  7. I'm it!! I'm finally getting around to this today ~ :) And I can actually carry a!

    And I was a "Donut", too. I had an 8th grade PE teacher who could NEVER get my name right, so she called me Donut. Sadly, the nickname stuck for awhile... :)

  8. Ah - love that shot of the beach.

  9. Wonderful pics!

    Thanks for the tag. Yours was the first but I've also gotten one from one of your tag-ees. Guess I need to get moving. My post should be up next week. Have a great weekend!
