I was tagged by the Free Slave. I’ve never been tagged before. So, this is my first time. Honestly, I don’t usually get into chain letters and/or tag situations. But because he asked, I did. So here goes…

1. We have to post these rules before we give you the facts.
2. Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
3. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
4. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
5. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

My Eight

1. I’ve had 17 surgeries. Oh yes… Your girl has gone under the knife that many times. And all 17 were pretty much unavoidable. But the next three that I plan to have are absolutely elected procedures. But they are must haves for me. I’ll leave it right there.
2. God talks to me, and I can hear his voice. No, not an audible voice. But it might as well be. That’s how clear His voice is for me at times.
3. I was a heavy drinker in college. But I never once in my life have done illegal drugs. I believed them when they said, “This is your brain on drugs.” Maybe I should have seen a commercial that said, “This is your liver on liquor.” I’m sure if I had seen that, I wouldn’t have ever been passed out on one of the sidewalks at my university.
4. I hate, hate, hate, hate bugs! One day, without realizing it, I picked up a living cricket that was in my bathroom sink. I was trying to figure out what it was. When I felt his legs moving, I freaked completely out. I threw the bug down and basically had a panic attack. I cried like a baby. And after I stopped crying, I realized that I’m really crazier than what I thought.
5. I really do wish that my parents could live as long as I live. I don’t want to go one day without them.
6. It takes a lot for me to decide to love someone. But when I do love you, I love you a lot. Maybe too much.
7. I don’t know how to swim. As a result, I am frightened of deep water. The fear of drowning freaks me the heck out.
8. People that know me EXTREMELY well are able to see straight through the wall that I purposely have up around me. However, there are some things about myself, that even my closest friends, Miko and Alicia, do not know about me. Will they ever know? Probably not. Will anyone know? If I meet my soul mate: yes. I’ll tell him everything of anything there is to know about me, the way I think, what I am thinking, what I’ve once thought, and so on.

There goes my 8. Who am I tagging next?

Faith in Action, The Thinking Black Man, Renea, Asa, Miko, Lola, Byg, and Tae’

Will they respond? Let’s see.

Asabagna said...

DAGG!!! Aulelia had tagged me too and I was going to tag you.... BUT you beat me to it! Thanks for the tag... I'll comply asap!

Angie said...

Yep, I've actually had 15 eye surgeries, 1 intestinal surgery, and 1 surgery on both of my breast. Because that 1 surgery was on 2 breast, does that count for 2? LOL I had biopsies done on both breast. Praise God for no cancer!

Maxjulian said...

We are more alike than different. Swimming, drinking. What the hell else do we have in common?

Angie said...

Maxjulian: Funny... I guess we shall see.

Angie said...

Asa, thank you for complying. So sweet!

Heber Brown, III said...

Angie! I can't believe you tagged me! It is so unlike me to participate in these types of things. It almost feels like one of those terrible "Forward this if you love Jesus" emails...ok - maybe not that bad. For you, my sister, I will comply. Give me a sec though. I've got to figure out how I can quickly bury it in my pages. (smile) - and can I not tag other people please!

Lola Gets said...

Ok, I finished my meme! Go take a look.

Renea said...

I'll do it and post it on both and www.myspace/sbrenea.

Asabagna said...

Angie! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! I hope you had a fun and blessed day!


Angie said...

Asa, my friend: Thank you so much! So sweet of you to remember.

Yes, I had a happy and blessed day. A few challenges here and there. But God is still so wonderful and loving to us. And that's the best gift a girl could have. I'm thankful that I have God in my life. His love is a WONDERFUL GIFT.

Again, thank you for remembering my day.

Peace and love,


Angie said...

Heber and Renea, thanks for going along with my little tag. Y'all are great pals.

Tae' said...

Hey Angie,

I reposted once but lost it trying to do a little bit of cleaning up on my blog. So, I redid it - again.
