Random and wacky facts--Tidbits

I'm snitching this blog idea from Shell, a blogger I ran into yesterday while blogging over at the MMC. Shell posted some 'random and wacky' tidbits about herself.

1.) I'm addicted to tea. Not just any tea, mind you, but Celestial Seasonings' Morning Thunder. I bring it everywhere I go. I brought it to the hospital after I had my hysterectomy. I even brought it with me to BookExpo when I stayed in the swanky hotel with my agent.

2.) Ages ago, when I was single, I used to wait tables and occasionally act as a female bouncer at the local bar (read: meat market). If girls got into it, if they passed out in the loo, it was my job to get them sorted out. I guess bitchiness has it's benefits. Snort.

3.) I once tanned the ta-tas on the French Riviera. That's right. I went to France in the summer of 1987, and "when in Rome, do as the Romans." So... I went topless on the beaches of Cannes, France. Let me tell you, sunburns THERE sting like hell!

4.) Stuffies. Plushies. Stuffed Animals. Dust collectors. Call 'em what you want. I'm a closet stuffed animal lover. The Build-a-Bear Workshop is one of my favorite haunts. (Go ahead. Giggle. I would, too.) I'll even deepen my shame by telling you, I sleep with a stuffed animal. Currently, it's a Stitch.

5.) I am, at this moment, playing Christmas music. *gasp* Yes, I know. It's not even Thanksgiving. But, 'tis the season, for me. I LOVE Christmas--the lights, the decorations, the FOOD, the pretty music and family gatherings. Don't get me wrong, I bitch profusely while sewing gifts, and trudging through the snow, but I still love this time of year.

Yes I too am addicted to the Celestial teas! My fav is the night time w/honey to sweeten it.

I'm addicted to Celestial Seasonings Green Tea, and LOVE big dust collectors! *cough* I mean stuffed animals / soft sculptured dolls and critters.

And btw, bring on Xmas! ^_^ We're short on cash this year, but I don't care. I've been looking forward to it since September.

Fun list!

I have lemon zinger, cranberry apple and peppermint Celestial Seasonings tea in my cupboard at the moment. Can't get through a day without them.

Pssst...we have a Christmas CD in the car already. *g* You aren't alone.

I've long had a love affair with Sleepytime tea! My other Celestial favorite is their seasonal Nutcracker Sweet. OMG it's the best!!

Hi, honey! I hope you're feeling better. I'm glad I'm not the only adult stuffy mauler :-) I was on the sofa last night, miserable with the RA flare-up, clinging to my Stitch.

I'm currently doing the pre-Christmas cleaning, Cora, and we're tight this year too. I wonder if there's something cosmic going on with us Christmas lovers starting up early?

Hi, NJ!

Isn't their Peppermint tea the best? I've tried other brands of mint tea, and none compare for me.

Y'know what's sad, NJ? I listen to The Soldier's Silent Night and cry every time. *sigh* I'm such a sap.

I love your list!! A bouncer and tanning the "girls" in French Riveria. Awesome. I'm going to try out the Morning Thunder.
