I've been tagged!

I've been tagged by Sarah at "A Baby for Carter"! What fun, what an honor. I've been loving her blog lately because we're going to be starting IVF at the same time. Also, I can click between "A Baby for Carter" and "Carter Time" to look at all of the adorable pictures of her son. Go ahead, I dare you to look at those pictures and tell me you've ever seen a more handsome little guy.

So the rules as I understand them are as follows:
Link back to the person who tagged you. Done. Tag 10 other blogs and tell 'em why you love 'em. List 10 honest things about yourself.
It appears that most people on my blogroll have already been tagged, so I'm not sure I can come up with 10 blogs. I'm trying not to double tag anyone.
First I'd like to tag Lisa at "And Baby Makes 3" She has been giving me helpful, supportive comments from the beginning. I never knew I could feel so grateful for a person I've never even met. And I am so excited by her recent BFP!
Next, I'd like to tag Jersey from "Woes of a Barren Lesbo" She makes me laugh. And she's from New Jersey. What other reasons do I need?
Third, I'm tagging Keely over at "Schroedinger's Womb" because any coffee addict is a friend of mine.
Tag number 4 goes to "Mommies in the Making", because they seem very sweet, and they're on a small break, so they need something fun to post about.
Number 5 goes to "Figboiler". I love how open and honest and raw your emotions are on your blog. You have a way of articulating what so many people are feeling but can't put into words. Yeah, I know you're been tagged already. But there are TWO of you. So this is my way of making sure that Justine and Boo each give us 10 things. No splitting the list!
Sixth, I'd like to tag "Journey towards our Baby" Because I feel like I could have written a lot of their posts, and because they're hopping on the IVF train too. I thought I saw somewhere that they'd already been tagged, but now I can't find where. So, just to be safe I'm tagging you too.
Number 7 goes to Rachel at Single Mom Insanity. I've just started following your blog, but I already think you're cool. Plus, I was raised by a single mom, so I've got a great deal of admiration for all the single moms out there.
And finally, I tag anyone who happens to be reading this! If you're on my blogroll and I didn't tag you, it's because I saw (or thought I saw) you on another list and not because I don't love you. Any lurkers, or people who have not yet commented are invited too! This is fun.

10 Honest things about me

1) I don't think I'd feel any great loss if I never spoke to my father again.

2) My first celebrity crush was on Whitney Houston when I was 6 years old. Remember when music clubs (C0lumbia House, etc) would send you little stamps with pictures of all the albums you could chose from? I used to tear out the Whitney Houston stamps and save them. Oh, and Jennifer Beals too. After I saw Flashdance I stretched out the collars on all of my T-shirts and sweatshirts so they would hang off of my shoulder. My mother was PISSED!

3) I usually have a meltdown when I go clothes shopping because I hate my body. Therefore, I don't go clothes shopping very often. And then I get cranky because I have nothing to wear. I just can't win.

4) I have a thing for artificial watermelon flavor.

5) When I was 5 years old, I was in a Su.baru commercial. I think it's what made me gay.

6) My biggest pet peeve is people who have no sense of the world around them. People who talk very loudly on cell phones on public transportation, line cutters, people who walk 3 or 4 abreast on narrow sidewalks and don't move for people walking in the opposite direction- they all make me nuts.

7) The ASPCA commercials make me cry.

8) I wish that I had taken time off between high school and college, because I didn't get as much out of the experience academically as I would have liked. But I did meet the love of my life at school, so I suppose it was worth it. :)

9) I subscribe to 3 foodie magazines and I have a shelf full of cookbooks, but I rarely use recipes when I cook.

10) I am SO EXCITED to be starting IVF soon.

bork bork bork! I love the swedish chef! I'm gonna have to go re-read your post cause I'm just fixated on that right now lol

Keely said...

Wow, my very first tag :) Thanks! And thanks for the great list. I'll start making mine soon. There's more than coffee that we have in common... no clothes, foodie obsessions, aspca/animal weakness, do-you-think-you're-the-only-one-here peeves... I gotta do some thinking to come up with originials.

That is probably my biggest pet peeve too! I hate most of the general public on a regular basis. How about stopping at the bottom of an escalator so no one behind you can get off!?! That makes me want to punch them in the face every time.

I haven't spoken to my father since 1997 and I have never regreted it. Not once. He's a real dick though.

We (Cat) have a stupid amount of cooking mags and books at our house too. I'm trying to encourage some kind of system for filing them and parting with the ones she doesn't use but it's not really working so far.

Oh also, I'm excited for you to start IVF too!

justine said...

i love your list and many are so eye opening. can we see the subaru commercial?!!? and on the watermelon, i am with you. yum!

Lisa said...

Ooohhhh, I'll have to do my part when I get home. Thanks for tagging me. You were in a commercial? Can you youtube it? Do you have it?

I wish I knew where the commercial was. It's probably somewhere at my mother's house. It's also on a really poor quality VHS tape. Maybe next time I visit my mom I'll see if I can dig it up.
