I've been tagged...

Oh, I'm so slow. Melissa at Twincredible Twosome tagged me like FOREVER ago, but with the birthday party, and then all the illnesses, I never did what I was supposed to do! So now I'm going to do it!

Here are the rules:
1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Well, here we go ... 7 facts about me.

1. I am an atheist. I was raised Roman Catholic, was baptised, made my communion, my confirmation, was married in a Catholic Church and even baptised my kids Catholic (this was more for my mom than anything else). All that being said, I do NOT planning on raising my kids Roman Catholic. I do not believe in God, or in any type of organized religion. That being said, to each his own. I have no issue with anyone being religious or having a strong faith, as long as it's not imposed on me.

2. I LOVE to sing karaoke. Seriously, it's like my favorite thing to do. And I haven't done it in a REALLY long time. For my 30th birthday we rented out a room at a karaoke bar in NYC, where we had our own room, and our own karaoke machine and it was just the funnest thing ever. I was a bit of a singing hog, I didn't want to let anyone else have a turn, but hey, I was my birthday! Eric even bought me my own karaoke machine for christmas one year. Yes, I do sing in the house when I'm by myself. I love to sing, I was in musicals all through high school. I would LOVE to do community theater ... maybe when the kids get older.

3. I had gastric bypass surgery in June, 2001. I have lost a total of 185 lbs, and haven't gained a pound back. I'm pretty proud of that!

4. I have been watching Days of our Lives since I was in elementary school. When I was that young, I would watch it during the summers only. Once I got into high school, I started recording it. And I still watch it every single day. Our DVR is full of them as we speak. I LOVE it. I feel like I know all the characters so well since I have been watching them for YEARS!

5. I had fake hair on my wedding day. I have always dreamed of having long luxurious hair. I even brought the woman who was doing my hair a picture of Vanessa Marcil when she was on General Hospital (another soap I watch!) getting married to Jax and said "This is what I want my hair to look like!". She took one look at my hair and was like "Yeah, um, this isn't going to happen!". BUT she told me that we could buy extensions, and match my hair color, and they would clip in, not be sewn in, so I could take them out that night. But they would be real human hair, so that you could style and curl it and what not. It was $400 to buy the hair I needed, but I LOVED the outcome! (See wedding pic).

6. I am obsessed with Charles Manson. Not in a "wow, he's cool way" but in a "He's SUCH a psycho way!". I have read Helter Skelter a million times and I'm just so interested in the story. I have read tons of books on the crazy family members, and I just find the whole topic super interesting. I heard they were making a movie about the Manson Girls starring Lindsay Lohan. I don't know how I feel about that. On a side note, I also watched Another World (the soap) until it went off the air. Lindsay Lohan was on it as a young girl. She was cute then. Now she's crazy.

7. I like to write. Not for anyone else, but just for me. I used to write plays a lot when I was a kid. I'm not kidding. My sister still makes fun of me for it to this day. She said when she was out partying as a teenager, I was staying home reading books and writing plays. Which is not exactly true! But, I did write a few plays. The last one I started was in like 1998 and was almost 70 pages when I just stopped writing it.

Alright. That's it. Now I have to tag 7 people.
I'm tagging Gemini Girl, Topcat, My June Bug Babe,The Mama Wannabe,Sean and Mary's Family,
Edit Claire and Ella Grace, and It Only Take One Egg.

Enjoy,
Erica

Thanks for your comment on my blog!

Jen said...

I've done this twice so I will either skip it or make up seven new random facts...

Melissa said...

Yeah! I was wondering when (if!) you would find time to write your seven things! I know we "twin mamas" are always pressed for time!! First of all, from someone who has struggled with weight issues my entire life, I am MOST impressed with your weight loss, and even more so with your keeping it off so long! WOW! Secondly, I am so totally with you on reading "Helter Skelter" a zillion times! He's so creepy, but so interesting (from an abnormal psych perspective) at the same time.
Great post!
