7 Random Facts About Me

I am taking up Chocolate and Marmalade Tea’s open Tag invitation. Here are seven random facts about myself. This was actually harder then I thought it would be, I mean, trying to think of things that are interesting and not stuff that people wouldn't give to figs about but here goes:

1. I used to tell my sister she was adopted when in fact she and my older brother had blonde hair and I had brown. It was really mean of me. She was only about 5 or 6 and I was about 12 and knew better but I didn‘t like being different. God decided to pay me back for my wickedness as my children are Blonde, Redhead and Brunette. One time I went shopping with the blonde and the redhead kept reaching out to men and saying “ daddy”? I had to say, “yes, they have the same dad.”

2. I am 12 years younger than my husband. I met my husband in Dec of 83, was engaged by Feb 84 and married Dec 84. In a few weeks we will be married 24 years! We are entering the empty nester stage and totally enjoying it!

3. I absolutely hate most vegetables. Especially Brussels Sprouts. I saw Invasion of the Body Snatchers as a child and ever since I compare the pods to Brussels Sprouts!


4. My favorite all time movie is Night of the Living Dead. There is a scene in the movie that looks like the Evening News and I thought it was sooo real, I freaked out, I was only about 7 but ever since I have been a lover of Horror Movies. I used to turn down dates if a good movie was on Creature Feature!

5. My Step-Father is a descendant of one of Jessie James’s Gang members, who’s real last name was Shepherd but was changed to Willis when he “retired” the gang and became legit you’d say. Lol. My Father-in-Law’s Aunt was the cousin of Ma Barker and her famous boys. My Father is buried in the plot right next to Myrna Lee Opsahl, the victim of the Symbionese Liberation Army and Patty Hearst bank robbery.

6. I recently donated my long hair I had for many years to Locks of Love. Gosh, the money I am saving on hair dye and shampoo is amazing! With all the gray hair my kids gave me I should have bought stock in Clairol, I’d probably be rich right now.

7. My book collection consists of two kinds of books, romance novels or true crime. It’s either or nothing in between. Well, I do have a small pile of Tea Time books in the middle. :)

Well here you go, a few facts about me! Hope I didn't bore you too much. Like Michelle, I am leaving this Tag open for any and all who wish to list 7 interesting fact about themselves.

Hey Melody...those are pretty interesting facts. I got a kick out of reading the first one especially. And #5 is pretty cool too.
I like romance novels also. I used to read Danielle Steel all the time, now I am into Debbie Macomber. Oh shoot, I'll read most anything. lol.

You sent me into stitches all the way reading the 7 points... I am really amused...can't stop smiling until now as I am writing this.. LOL! Could you now imagine how I am laughing...alone in my bedroom???

Janeen said...

Well big sister... hmmm, okay... enuff said! ha ha

Did you enjoy the movie? Are you sick from all that chocolate? lol

Michelle said...

Wow Melody, you are so much more interesting than me! I love the first one where you told your sister she was adopted. Thank God my older sister never told me that. Ha! How long was your hair? My hair goes down to the middle of my back but I am thinking of cutting it shorter...as I get older I just don't want to deal. Lol!

Have a happy Sunday!!

Tea Time With Melody said...

Janeen, OMGosh the movie, (An Affair to Remember)I cried and cried, I watched the ending over about 3 times and cried some more. Maybe I just needed to cry. lol

Tea Time With Melody said...

Michelle, check out my older post in October, "Long Hair No More" and it has pics of how long my hair was. I have gone from short short hair to long hair twice this was the last time...:) I even dyed it myself!

Hi Melody!
Oh how I enjoyed this post! What we do to our siblings.... the reason my email address is Carolinamoon is because of a song my brother would sing to tease me and bring me to tears.....

Hi Melody,
I enjoyed this post. It's so wonderful how you can take everyday life events and make them so very humourous. It's a real talent.
I must have missed a lot by not having any siblings! (Maybe that's a *good* thing? ha ha)
Have a Happy Thanksgiving gal!
♥ ∞

A really intersting list Melody, as a child, I was very mean to my younger sister too, hopefully I have made up for it now!

Rosie said...

A great list, Melody, I enjoyed reading it:) I love brussels sprouts, perhaps I would change my mind if I saw that film:)

Steph said...

Very fun! My DH (dear hubby) is older than I am, as well. I like the music you have playing here. Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy, happy Thanksgiving!! I hope you have a wonderful and thankful one. I'm so glad I met you. :)

Joanna said...

i think it is so funny you told your sister she was adopted!!! i used to tell everyone that i had an older sister, but i really only have one younger sister. i don't know why i did that haha

Joanna said...

thanks for you comment on my blog!! i'm glad you thought it was fun to read. i think it would be so cool to have my own cooking show. i was just in a cooking video for a project for school and i made blondies. it turned out really well- thank heavens!

hope you had a nice thanksgiving!

Hi, I was working on the road with an aviation company. Gone 10 mo. out year. I did a lot of silk and had the motor home full. Made the inviations myself and came home deco weddings, took it down and left that night back to whatever state we were working in! So you can do it!

Terrie's Lil' Piece of Serenity said...

It was fun to learn more about you. I use to tell my sister that she was adopted. I agree it wasn't very nice.
