I got tagged!

I don't ever get tagged so since Rel decided to tag me with a meme, I thought what the heck, I'll do it.

  1. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
  2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
  3. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
  4. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged, and to read your blog.

8 random facts/habits about me ...

1. I am absolutely terrified of Ronald McDonald. I don't have a fear about other clowns but Ronald scares me to death. I had a dream when I was five that the whole world had turned into Ronald McDonalds and it was only me and my sister that was safe. We were running and hid behind a car and then I remember turning to talk to her and she had red hair. To this day, if I see a Ronald McDonald, I quickly walk away. The irony of this is my boyfriend has red hair....

2. I am a HUGE Star Wars fan. I've seen all the movie millions of times and I still cry at the end of Return of the Jedi. The irony of this is that I only got into Star Wars in 1999 AFTER Phantom Menace was released. I didn't even know Harrison Ford had been in the original trilogy. Someone loaned us the VHS of the OT and after that we were hooked. I plan on playing the Throne Room March as my wedding recessional :)

3. I am a NASCAR fan which people find odd because I am Asian. The truth is, the real reason why I got into NASCAR is because I thought Dale Earnhardt Jr was cute. And now Kasey Kahne is really cute too. I still watch the races even though you never see their actual faces for the whole race.

4. I got to meet Dale Earnhardt Jr when he came to Norfolk a few years ago. I walked up to the table and intended on telling him he should come to VT (where I was at the time) and party with us. Instead what came out was, "You're hotter in person than you are on TV". He kinda of smiled and said "Um, Thanks." I felt embarrassed.

5. I broke my leg roller skating when I was 18. The break was so bad that while my knee was turned completely left, my foot was still completely vertical. I have a metal plate and pins (no I don't set off security gates) and it hurts when it's really cold.

6. I have flown around the world! My mother is from Malaysia so we have visited back there twice as a family. In 1991 we flew the Pacific way, and in 1997 we flew the Atlantic way. It's a beautiful country btw.

7. Right before I started this blog in August, I had about 210 Christian fiction and chick lit books. Since then my library has grown to over 600 books. That's over 400 books in 9 months! My boyfriend jokes that I'll have 5000 by the time we get married.

8. The first Christian fiction adult book I read was Janette Oke's Love Come Softly when I was 8 years old. I enjoyed the story, but I couldn't understand the "prairie way" of talking the characters used. I didn't finish the rest of the series because of that. I didn't pick up the series again until 5 years later, reread the book, loved it, and have since collected every single Janette Oke title.

Well, I'm tagging whoever wants to be tagged!


  1. Ha ha ha! Great facts, Deb!

  2. A friend of mine is deathly afraid of cotton. You know, like a cotton ball sitting on the counter, or the cotton stuffed inside an med bottle. She will not touch it or even go near it. It gives her the willies.

    But Ronald McDonald? That's a first!

    : )

  3. Mmmm...I am not great at maths but I am thinking you need to get purchasing! At the current rate your wedding will be in 9.3 years time - LOL!!!!!

    Hey Donna :)

  4. Rel is too much. I'm groggy but now not grouchy. *smile*

    You have how many books!!!
