Tagged Again

I had to edit this post and change the size of the pictures because the space for the entries is 500 px wide and my photos have the same width so their right sides were getting cut off. If you want to see a larger version of any of the pictures, click on them.

I was tagged by both Sally and Diane to share seven random or weird facts about myself. I've done this one before and always try to come up with new facts.

1. My full name is Patricia but I've always been called Patty. My mom spelled it as Patti from day one but in elementary school, I changed the I to a Y. (What a rebel.)

2. I don't wear necklaces but always have three silver bracelets on my left arm. I used to wear a charm bracelet too but the horse fell off and I haven't put it back on yet.

3. The last song I downloaded was Hollaback Girl.

4. I have a thing for patron saints and collect saints medals . . .

. . . and holy cards. These are the good cards because they're laminated and you get a medal with it. From left toright: St.Martin de Porres (the patron saint of hair stylists and television), St. Francis of Assisi (needleworkers!), and St. Peregrine (against cancer).

5. When I watch those decorating shows on HGTV, it drives me insane when they don't use painter's tape to mark off the edge, like where the wall meets the ceiling.

6. There's a little calendar page for September taped to my monitor. The 30th is circled and Target is written below it. I have no idea what that means. The other word is needlework and that was marked to remind me when The Needlework Show was starting.

7. I think posts are better with photos.

I'm not going to tag anyone this time but if you want to list your own seven weird or random facts on your blog, please do. Let me know if you do it so I can go read your facts.

I never wear necklaces, too!

I love charm bracelets. Why not put all those Saints on a bracelet too?

The not using masking tape thing makes me crazy too. How can they paint like that? They always make it look like they paint a whole room in an hour, instead of the days it takes normal people.

When I was younger, my mom used to spell my name with a y (Jenny), and I did the rebel thing too and changed it to a ie (Jennie). *grin* She never said a thing about it, and I ended up going back to the y.

#5 cracked me up because I *once* tried painting near the ceiling without tape. I discovered my hand wasn't as steady as I thought it was. :D

Thanks for playing along and coming up with more interesting truths. I LOVE that you have no idea why you wrote Target on your calendar. (I think I'll go write Walmart and Costco on October 19 and 27th right now.) HGTV drives me nuts because they use the word "whimsical" waaaay too much. You're right, posts ARE better with pix!

I also have a lot of patron saint medals! I hope to make a charm bracelet with the one day.

My mom is a Patricia who also goes by Patty. My best friend is Patricia but she goes by Trish. Just thought I'd add that last part in there.

The thing that bugs me on HGTV is when they talk about something "popping"! I also hate it when people use the phrase "Step up" and the word "kudos". Again, just throwing in some extra random thoughts. ;)
