Ugh...I've been tagged

Okay. I hate the tagging thing, I have to say. I'm not going to follow the rules at all. I'll list five random things but I'm not tagging anyone else. I'm just NOT that organized.

1. I am a HUGE procrastinator. You have no idea how much fabric I have in my attic just WAITING to be transformed into beautiful projects. I've learned recently that this is a fine problem if you're a worker bee/follower but if you're in a leadership position the procrastination thang just doesn't work AT ALL. I'm workin on it. This is also why I hated being a student. I was a good student...always got good grades...but hated school. HATED IT.

2. I'm an etiquette snob. It's kind of stupid and useless and a total waste of time but I really am. I can't STAND people who chew with their mouths open. Now I've discovered that BabyGirl has the same issue. She refuses to go to any of her girlfriend's birthday parties if she deems them "one who chews with their mouth open". I try to RSVP (this has become more difficult with kids...WAY too many social obligations). I always try to write a thank you note. Even if it's late...atleast I made the effort.

3. I like to stay out late. I've never been a "party girl" per say, but if I'm going out, by God, I'm gonna do it right. If you're in a cocktail club and folks are leaving at 10:30pm then you MUST go out somewhere for drinks afterwards. I mean, seriously. What better do you have to do? You can sleep when you're dead.

4. I have a prerequisite for girlfriends. If you can't throw an F-bomb every now and again then you just can't be in my circle. I'm sorry. A real lady says F*CK. They just do. Maybe it's a southern thing. Maybe it's not. I don't know. I just have a real problem with someone who is so tight that they can't let loose and talk some trash once in a while.

5. And speaking of talkin some trash. Everyone who knows me that's reading this will laugh. I have issues with secrets. I just can't keep them very well. I've actually gotten much better, though. I have a circle of about five people that I'm willing to gossip with and that's it. But really....what fun is life if you can't throw down and talk some really good gossip? Isn't that what life's all about? My mother used to always say..."I don't repeat gossip...so you'd best listen carefully the first time." I maintain my belief that she was a genius in her own right.

Awesome job - sorry about the tagging thingy but I love your comments! And I am with you ... F**k is a fabulous word, especially when you add in the english accent. It makes it almost divine! Hee, hee!

I agree with you about the F-bomb--totally agree. And I hate it when people think it's not lady like--it's 2008 people and if we can't say f#ck then WTF??? :)

I am totally with you on #3, 4 and 5.
I think that the lady like F-Bomb is a Southern thing.
