It's all Sam's Fault! ~ da meme

Da Rulez:

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.

Eight things about 'Moi'! (Sam is sorta French, and I love the way this sounds so am keeping moi.)

1. I'm a Scorpio, and all that is written about the Scorp being over-sexed, vicious, vindictive, jealous, deceptive, and blunt is a fucking lie. If you don't believe me, ask my former lovers and husbands - if you can find them. (A few of the bodies have already been found.)

2. One of my closest friends is an ordained minister who writes erotic romance. No, I'm not ratting them out. (Yet another Scorpio trait = loyalty.)

3. I've had a hole in my skull since birth, I've swam with the pink dolphins in Peru, and I've worked with the FBI - and only one of those is a lie, so even though you may not know which one, you just got two for the price of one on what IS real. (Uh, that part about being deceptive *might* be true to an extent if you count lying by ommission.)

4. I have never had a professional manicure or pedicure *sigh*, and I've never yanked off bodily hair with hot wax. I prefer to inflict my own pain rather than pay someone else to hurt me. (Okay, so we're a smidgen sadistic.)

5. My maternal grandmothers for over a century were Medicine Women for the Creek Nation. (And I'll admit to being a tad secretive.)

6. The person who demands something of me generally gets tossed aside. If they put me in a "choose THEM or ME situation, in other words, it's always "Okay - them - bye." (Don't tell me that's a Scorpio trait - I won't believe it.)

7. I believe there was more than one shooter on The Grassy Knoll, that Oswald did not act alone, and that the government was somehow involved - Johnson's family Bible had never left his house until that day...why that one particular day, I ask? How is it that he is sworn in as our President using that particular Bible unless he had warning? (We Scorps enjoy mysteries and conspiracy theories - hell, we probably started half of 'em.)

8. 7 is my favorite #, followed closely by the # 4. (I don't have an astrological comparison for that one, sorry - you'll just have to suppose it's a Scorpio thang.)

I tag:Rinda, Liz Wolfe, CJ, Lex, Ann Wesley Hardin, Sarah, Kelly, and Jess.


and here is my favorite Mother's Day story to date...sent by friend Liz M:

A Great Mother's Day Story

So, we had this great 10 year old cat named Jack who just recently died. Jack was a great cat and the kids would carry him around and sit on him and nothing ever bothered him. He used to hang out and nap all day long on this mat in our bathroom.

Well, we have 3 kids and at the time of this story they were 4 years old, 3 years old and 1 year old. The middle one is Eli. Eli really loves chapstick. LOVES IT. He kept asking to use my chapstick and then losing it. So finally one day I showed him where in the bathroom I keep my chapstick and how he could use it whenever he wanted to but he needed to put it right back in the drawer when he was done.

Last year on Mother's Day, we were having the typical rush around and trying to get ready for Church with everyone crying and carrying on. My two boys are fighting over the toy in the cereal box. I am trying to nurse my little one at the same time I am putting on my make-up. Everything is a mess and everyone has long forgotten that this is a wonderful day to honor me and the amazing job that is motherhood.

We finally have the older one and the baby loaded in the car and I am looking for Eli. I have searched everywhere and I finally round the corner to go into the bathroom. And there was Eli. He was applying my chapstick very carefully to Jack's . . . rear end. Eli looked right into my eyes and said "chapped."

Now if you have a cat, you know that he is right--their little butts do look pretty chapped. And, frankly, Jack didn't seem to mind. And the only question to really ask at that point was whether it was the FIRST time Eli had done that to the cat's behind or the hundredth.

And THAT is my favorite Mother's Day moment ever because it reminds us that no matter how hard we try to civilize these gloriouslittle creatures, there will always be that day when you realize they'vebeen using your chapstick on the cat's butt.

Oh, it sounds like you're a Scorpio!
LOL! *ducking*
Would you believe I'm Scorpio rising? I think you're dead on about the secrets and the hating to be pushed around.

I love, love, love that mother's day story. It is hysterical. And SO true.

Now you'll think I'm making this up - I'm Scorpio with LEO rising - ROFLMAO!

Okay, I played. (g)

I still remember when you did my hubby's chart and said he was certainly more Scorpio than Sagittarius.
