Tag, I'm It

A fellow New England Mama, who blogs at Life As I Know It, tagged me for this 7 Things Meme. I feel like I've done this one a time or two before....oh yeah. Here. And here. Oh wait, here's another. Oh, and one more. Has the boredom drool hit your keyboard yet? Because it's smeared across mine.

But because I'm tired not one to shy away from a tag, here goes:

1. I feel like an imposter at work. Getting all dressed up in big-girl clothes, riding the commuter rail, going to meetings. Because at the end of the day, I get home and am down on the floor, changing poopy diapers, giving baths, reading stories. Still in my work clothes. I don't think working full-time will ever become second nature to me, nor do I want it to.

2. I hate lawn ornaments. Especially the tacky inflatable behemouths (ie., Christmas Winnie the Pooh, Santa on a motorcycle, purple spiders on Halloween). I mean, does someone stand in their front yard, scratching their head with perplexity and summarize, "All we need is a blow-up Grinch and some light up reindeer to make this yard PERFECT!" Seriously. What is the thought process? Please enlighten me.

3. I am a choco-holic. But I hate white chocolate. And I won't eat chocolate if it has coconut in it.

4. Since my profound discovery, I had one of these at least 3 times a week now. I tried the caramel, but still prefer the vanilla. Hey, do they make chocolate chai?

5. I've tried to watch this movie twice now, but have fallen asleep both times. I give up.

6. I'm currently reading this.

7. I think Chantal is going to win America's Next Top Model; that Amanda will win Survivor; and that Neil will win The Biggest Loser. (Doesn't trainer Bob look a little bit like David Beckham?)

#2...could not agree more. Biggest waste of money!
#5...you are not missing anything.
#6...love Jodi Picoult
#7...he does look like David Beckham. I wish I could have him as a trainer, I would have a hard time saying no to him. My trainer...I need to take her pulse every once in awhile to see if she is still alive...she is SOOOO boring!

I'm so bummed you've not seen the movie all the way through. I guess my being wedded to a Brit makes all Brit movies perfect for me. And I was never a Jude Law fan, until I saw that.

Nothing would make my daughter happier than having a blow up Homer Simpson in our yard for Christmas. It ain't happenin'!

Meme-tastic.

I love number one and choco holic doesn't even begin to describe me. I don't even think they make a word for what I am ;)

I'm with you on number one. Being at work for 40 hours a week ends up making me feel like I'm an imposter at work and at home! I'm hoping to drop to part-time hours with baby 2!

I still adore these memes. I love America's Next Top Model, although I find I'm always eating something terribly fattening while watching these super-skinnies sashaying all over the place.

I agree on the lawn ornaments but I do have the spiral trees with white lights. Is that ok?

I don't watch the other two shows, but Neil is gonzo and I could not be happier. I want Julie to win. She just seems like such a sweet girl.

Oh and Bob? He so needs to come flying out of the closet with a big pink boa around him, no?

Haha! I'm catching up on your blog as I have not read it in a while and was giggling at your predictions for the reality show winners... because I had the same ones. And I went on and on about how RIGHT I was to my husband, and one by one they all were proven false... yeah, he's still laughing at me. :)

Love your blog. Good writing!
