I sleep with Santa Claus


First, I was tagged by Only A Movie (one of my favorite hangouts for reading - I love her insight and calmness) for a meme and I am to list seven things about me. And since this has been the meeting week from hell (I have fanny fatigue, I tell ya), I decided to play along. Plus, I'm just a rule follower at heart.

Mr. Strong is Santa Claus

1 - I really do sleep with Santa Claus. My Jewish husband has been Santa Claus for over 30 years. I actually sat on his lap as a kid (me as the kid, him as the Santa). Kind of sick, huh?

2 - I was almost 40 before I really learned to eat strawberries. I always loved the taste but had to learn to get past the seedy texture. And the chocolate helped.

3 - I only taught for three years before moving into administration. You know what they say. Screw up, move up.

4 - I miss teaching and I dream of moving back to the classroom. I was a special education teacher and I'd love to be right back in the middle of a class of Emotional Behavior Disorder filled students. Those are my kind of people.

5 - My favorite word is sequester and my favorite math fact is 7x8. What? You don't have a favorite math fact? You should try it.

6 - My closet is organized by clothes type. And color. I can get dressed in the dark (which is handy during hurricane season) and still match.

7 - I get attached to cars. All of the cars in my life have had names. And they have all been girls. My first car was Agnes (as in Agnes of God) and we were together for 13 years. I was truly brokenhearted when Agnes left her earthly home for that place in the sky.


I was also tagged by Michel at Facts are Strictly Optional for a different type of meme. If you haven't read her, she is funny!

The first rule of this Meme (you decide, is it Me Me or Meme as in theme) is that you put Your Name in a Google search and post your results.

Well, Beth came up with the Kiss song, Beth. Which totally rocks. Cuz they can hear me callin'. Which is probably more than I can say about my own ears.

And as for the tagging of others, do we have any volunteers? Anyone? Any one? Bueller?

You go girl! Hope you get everything you want...you MUST be a good girl to sleep with Santa!

It took me a minute to get past number one. I had to reread it ; -)

I'm guessing #'s 3 and 6 are connected somehow, and since my closet is anything but organized (unless you count clothes type mostly in the same area)I will probably not be going into admin anytime soon.

I typed my name into Google and #1 came up "Angela Music Catalog" and #2 a movie called Angela directed by Rebecca Miller in 1995-wierd!

that whole closet by color thing would never last in my world b/c it would never get there in the first place. Cars? I just like it when I can call mine " new "

♥ Braja said...

I'm still on #1. I think one of us needs therapy. I'm just not sure who...

Sarah's Blogtastic Adventures said...

I am totally jealous you get to sleep with santa clause. will you tell him i want a pink barbie house for christmas next year? : )

Threeboys1mommy said...

You and Santa are a hot mess... uhm yeah, I couldn't get passed #1 ;-)

Sunny said...

Well, I got the Wiki link to jazz standart song "sunny". Link no2 was to "Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention and Visitors Bureau".

Michel said...

Now you've gone and ruined my love of Lifetime Christmas Movies... Fa La La La Lifetime just sounds dirty now!

7x8 is my arch nemesis because I can never remember what it is (and now I'm questioning my answer...) Kinda like how I can never remember how to spell forty (??)- Is there a damn "u" in that!?

only a movie said...

A favorite math fact? Of course. I'm totally asking my students today to tell me their favorites.

I've always thought Santa was sorta hot.

Deb said...

you must have had quite some list when you sat on his lap oh so long ago...

i think i am going to have to go with 4x4. neat, easy.

Gaston Studio said...

OK, I totally flashed on Billy Bob Thornton in "Bad Santa" on No 1. I love the 'google your name' idea; I came up with my page on Indie, but what I loved was the Great American Artworks by 'me' and Women of the American Revolution with 'me.'

Jan said...

Actually, the fact you've sat on Santa's lap as a little girl is rather...well...kinky.

I like it!

Sprite's Keeper said...

4 x 4. I love the number and the resulting 16. Ever since I was a kid. Thought I was weird. Glad for the company!

Smart Mouth Broad said...

I love that you married Santa Claus. And a Jewish Santa Claus at that. I was tagged by Erin too. I have to get on that. Oh and I drive my cars til they die a long slow death too.

nikkicrumpet said...

Favorite math fact??? Okay you are officially a freak lol...but I still love you.

HeatherPride said...

Your husband is the Jewish Santa? Wow, who knew!!

Also, I have no idea what 7x8 is or what it equals. Whenever I see that I have to mentally turn it around to 8x7 and I know instantly that it's 56! (It is 56, right?) (Is that weird?)

Jane said...

You can so have #4. I seriously don't know how you people (being teachers) can do this. I thought I was going to be a teacher once, and then I visited some schools as an assistant. I decided I would kill somebody. If not a kid, then definitely - definitely - a parent. Or a dozen.

#1....hmmmm. LOL.

Crazy Charm said...

My favorite math fact is also 7x8!

I wish there was a list to tell you what your favorite fact says about your personality.
