Yikes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not Again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dr. Stu Savory aka Eunoia aka Old Phat Stu has tagged me with a meme -- like my life is sooo interesting that inquiring minds want to know. So here it is after 1 AM in Ohio and, fortunately, I've had a couple pints with old friends so I'm crazy enough to attempt it and see how much trouble can get myself in by answering.

Here are the rules:
  • Link to the person who tagged you;

  • Post the rules on your blog;

  • Tag six people at the end of the post;

  • Let each person know they've been tagged;

  • Link to the tagees , when their entries are up; . . . so here goes. . .

Six Random Things About Moi:

  1. I call myself a renegade Catholic, i.e., I do it my way. If I ever tell a priest how I really feel, there's a damned good chance I'll be excommunicated. Then again, a priest I like told me they don't do that much anymore. My deathbed confession should be a hoot.
  2. I became a liberated woman at the age of eight when I came home from school hollering because Sister wouldn't let me have a sign-up sheet for Little League. My dad explained that girls don't play baseball and I cried and through my tears, I said, "That's not fair! I play better than most of the boys on the block." (Side note: At that moment little Gloria Steinem was growing up a few miles away from me. I think it was the water in Toledo in the 50s.)
  3. The Great American Novel is languishing on my hard drive. Some day I might even finish it.
  4. I am neither a Republican nor a Democrat. I don't trust politicians or bureaucrats of any stripe as a general rule. Mark Twain said: "No man's life, liberty, or property is safe while the legislature is in session." Old Mark was probably right except he failed to include the Oval Office in that statement. Just my take.
  5. Unlike that liar Bill Clinton, I inhaled. Not often because I wasn't too impressed with the effects but I did inhale.
  6. The best word to describe me is "survivor". It doesn't matter what happens to me, I survive -- so far. LOL

Now I am tagging the following: Cowtown Pattie, Rain, M.E., Joared, Betty, Claudia.

Have fun!!!!!

Happy Blogging!!!!!



  1. Thanks for joining in the fun, Kay.

    Liked your 8-year-old story :-)
    As an 8-year-old male, I wanted to learn cooking, but was scolded "that's only for girls!" :-(
    Can barely cook well to this day :(

    I did the 'Great Motorcycling Novel' back in 1990 - "Howl of the Mountain King" - a terrible flop. Guess there are things which SHOULD slumber on our hard drives ;-)

    Looking forward to your tagees :-)

  2. GOOD reading, Kay! I will look forward to your taggee's answers.

  3. You are too funny, and we must meet one day! I, too, am somewhat of a renegade, but pretty faithful Catholic (and a convert). I never inhaled, but I never tried either. I'm one of the only people of my generation who can honestly say I never smoked pot ... ever. Have a great day!

    BTW, what were those pints you were drinking?

  4. A renegade Catholic...I like that. Btw, I'd love to hear your deathbed confession NOW. :)

    Mark Twain had some memorable lines. I like the one about how you can live for two months on a good compliment.

    It's good to know that no matter what happens to us, we'll survive.

    Btw, you write very well after 1 am in Ohio. :)

  5. I too was a Little Leaguer wanna-be so I definitely feel your pain. To this day I'm sure I would have been the best player on the local team.

  6. Stu: My ex husband liked to cook. He joked that he was the short order cook and I did the gourmet stuff. He did a mean omelet for Sunday morning brunch.

    Judy: So will I. I chose people who I don't usually tag.

    Amy: Pot had no great thrill for me. My drug of choice was beer -- still is but not in the quantity it once was. I was the one who would raise her hand and say, "Sister, that doesn't make sense." They blamed it on my having a Protestant father so I didn't get wacked on the knuckles with rosary beads for that.

    Scarlet: I'm usually at my best at 1 am. As to that confession, it's gonna have to wait. I'd spend the rest of my life looking over my shoulder!!! LOL And yeah, Mark Twain is awesome.

    Ms. F.: I wouldn't have been a superstar either but it would have been a hell of a lot more fun than the damned ballet lessons. Actually at that point, I was better at hockey. I swung a mean stick.

    Sister (when I appeared at school with a black eye): What happened to you?

    Kay: Took a stick in the face playing hockey.

    Sister: You're no lady!

    Kay: Yes, Sister. (I wanted to ask -- and your point is?)

    Being a lady was a case of no apparent interest for me.

  7. I'm sending you an e-mail about tagging, Kay. I'm still rather new at this blogging so I don't know what this is all about.

    Get that novel out and write a chapter, or even a page, a day. You write with humor and I'll be it's a best seller in the making.

  8. As far as the baseball field goes, I am Charlie Brown, way out in the backfield *praying* that they never hit a ball to me, because I KNOW I couldn't catch it.
    Amy, count me as the other one who never tried it. But my sis and I used to stand there and watch them in the park. hee hee. It was quite entertaining as they played their music and all got high.
    And I agree with Darlene and your writing. You GO GIRL!

  9. I don't usually do MEMEs and have previously written about that on my blog, but I'll see.....will let you know if and when I do.
