Six Random Things about meme.

I received a Google alert about Taylor Hicks from Kallen at Kitchen Window Birder: Six Random Things about meme.. Taylor was mentioned in her 6 Random Things About Me blog. It seems this is a craze that has hit the blog-o-sphere. It seems a fun thing to participate in so here goes.

1) I have 3 kids that mean the world to me. My oldest is from my first marriage. His father and I divorced when he was 3. But his step Father has always treated him and loved him as his own. My son tells everyone that his step Dad is his Real Dad.

2) I am very shy. You might not know that by chatting to me online but when you meet me in person it is very easy to tell.

3) I hate my hair lol. Well I do, it is naturally curly and I have to fight with it like crazy. My husband always teases me says he knows if it is raining or going to rain because when I get up in the morning my hair has lost a couple inches from the curls tightening up.

4) I have notebooks scattered all through my house with notes about things I want to write about, beginnings to that #1 novel that have never been finished and poems or bits of poems that come to mind all of the seldom to soon be forgotten.

5) Elvis Presley was my first IDOL. He died when I was 10 years old and as a teen in the 80’s it wasn’t the in thing to love Elvis but that didn’t stop me. I gushed about how gorgeous he was and how talented. I still feel that way.

6) Another IDOL as taken center stage over Elvis. He hasn’t taken his place just put him on the back burner for the moment. That person as all of you who read here already know is Taylor Hicks. I saw him when he first auditioned for American Idol and started rooting for him from that moment on. I am way more involved in the Taylor Hicks craze than I was in Elvis. I thought I was nuts over Elvis, my family thought I was obsessed, however now I see as do they how much more involved I have become in Taylor. I never joined Elvis fan boards, fan sites or ran a blog about Elvis. Of course I never attended a Elvis concert. I would have if I could have though. But for now since 2006 Taylor Hicks has become my musical obsession so to speak. I can’t wait for the new album of Taylor Hicks’ to come out Feb 10th the album is called The Distance.

On to the next stage. As required, here are the rules. (copied and pasted in its entirety from the Kallen’s site), including this blurb.

The rules for Six Random Facts are pretty straightforward:

1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write six random things about yourself.
4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let each person know they've been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

As you can see, just like Kallen, I am not tagging anyone. I am leaving it open to those who want to join in on the fun. If you want to participate please do so. I have been reading others meme's and it's a lot of fun to find out things about them that you didn't know before.
