It's All About MEEEEEE.......

Okay, taking up some space for some "me" time. First, I was tagged by Ill Mami from Hopelessly Sarcastic, who forgot one of the cardinal rules of the tag.....let them know they've been tagged--haha. I found out by stopping by her blog. I live under the cloak of invisibility, but I guess I can give out a few random and weird facts without revealing my super identity :-)

1) I can read palms and tarot cards, and am very, very good at it. I started on a fluke by reading a few books that a roommate had years ago. I stopped doing it cause all of my friends were calling me every day for the most minute details, like I was Madame Cleo or something.

2) I've had more than a few careers, one of the first being a flight attendant for about 4 months (as Men on Film would say "hated it!") to being a stylist for music videos (interesting but tiresome).

3) Until I was about 14 I wanted to be a nun. When I was very young I was brought up Catholic, and typical of the guilt associated with it, I thought it would be the only way for me to get into heaven. Needless to say that thought is long gone.

4) I am kind of a nerd--the only TV shows that I go out of my way to watch are adult cartoons, and I watch them compulsively; South Park, The Simpsons, Family Guy, Adult Swim (like Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Frisky Dingo), etc. I know, I have a problem. I also loathe reality shows and never, ever watch the news. I do get news from reading the blogs, tho!

5) I am a purse/handbag addict, and cannot resist buying when I see something beautiful, even when funds are low. You know you're an addict when you have about 50 purses and use the same getting-raggedy one every single day.

6) I love alt-rock, especially from the 90's; Stone Temple Pilots, Porno For Pyros, Velvet Revolver, Nirvana, etc.--I totally love them--more than a bit baffling to boyfriends, haha. I also used to be the biggest rap/hip-hop queen on the planet, which was also baffling for some cause you would never tell by looking at me. I even drank 40s with some of the rappers. Guys used to be shocked, and tell their friends "Yo-she knows rap like a ni__a!" This was when it was still PC to say that word of course. I guess they were too used to groupies.

7) I smoked off and on for years...I was a closet smoker, really hiding it, and generally did it when I had some cocktails. Now I can't even stand to smell them.

Anyway, enough about me. The people that I want to tag are:

Just Judith from Viva Voce

Coco LaRue aka Coco LaWall from Thursday Nite Fever (them bitches is ash and i'm lotion!)

Purple Zoe from Ultraviolet Underground

David from Undercover Black Man (tho he may be too highbrow for these types of shenanigans)

Ms. Hott Sauce of That's Not Hott!

Sincere from Sincere Thoughts

The rules are this:

A) Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.

B) Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself.

C) Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.

D) Let each person know that they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Speaking of Ms. Hott Sauce, she and I are starting a blog book club called "Hog Head Cheese". Yes, that's the name. We are taking turns picking one book per month, and she is first, and she chose the book "Wifey". We officially start on the 15th, and I would love, love, love for you guys to join us. I'll post the link to our new site this weekend.

the picture at the very top was in google images under 'playing tag'...don't ask me what the powder faced woman and her kool-aid drinking baby are up to...

I knew you was da' bomb girl! I HATE reality shows; all my purses are keeping each other company since that denim Louis came out, I can't put it down and it's going down slow, HA!

justjudith said...

MrsGrapevine said...

I'm a sucker for 90's alterntaive, too. It must be the prep school in me. To your list I will have to add Cranberries and Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Undercover Black Man said...

Thanks, IW... I guess. ;^D

What happens if I don't play? Hair falls out? Testicles shrivel up? General bad mojo?

Like justjudith, I'll have to wait till the weekend.

Ill Mami said...

Sorry for not tagging you, but very interesting facts I might add. I loooove STP (Stone Temple Pilots) too!!! I always used to think that Scott Weiland was kind of cute, until the heroin thing got in the way ;-)

ambboogie said...

We have a lot in common!

I am an Adult Swim addict as well

and I used to LOVE STP as well!

Erika-Nicole said...

you are an interesting woman. i can relate to wanting to have been a nun.

Invisible Woman said...

Good to know I'm not alone in my alt-rock love (and adult swim) can you not like STP? @MGV: I love both of those groups too; zombie and that wrapped around your finger song are the answer, and i still play californication at least 3x a week. I just couldn't list everybody...@jj and ubm-I can wait until the weekend, and david, i promise not to put "roots" on you!

@erika nicole: well that makes one of you :-) @shelia: I knew you were a woman of substance

MsMarvalus said...

Wow...interesting...I am still the closet smoker, enjoying the nicotine with my cocktails and when I blog (I don't know why, I just do; weird; I don't smoke any other time) I also am a purse AND shoe diva...I'm mainly addicted to Coach and them damn LVs...I'm still the rap/hip-hop queen, although I'm getting kinda tired of defending these Negroes making these irresponsible decisions...

MsMarvalus said...

BTW, the book club? I wanna play! Good idea!

PurpleZoe said...

I can very much relate 1 and 6. I think the runes can be more accurate when it comes to the energies surrounding a lifepath. I usually pull them out upon request if folks want more than my intuition on a subject.

Sorry it took forever to post the link. It's been a very weird week as far as oppressive energy goes...It's just been heavy in the air 'round these parts.

Hope all is beauteous on your end Queen.

Invisible Woman said...

PZ...tried the runes, but can't really relate to them yet...alt rockers unite! haha Ms. M: I would be honored to have you join us!

HotSauce!! said...

Hey i'm going to do this for real tomorrow
