8 Random Things About Me Meme

Tom in Vegas tagged me an 8 Random Things about Me Meme.

1) I am Cranky and Catty most of the time. Ask anyone, except, Terry! LOL!
2) I despise people who say some wackadoo piece of insane baloney but when you ask them for a reference OR justification OR a coherent explanation they are unable to deliver.
3) I used to be the person in #2 so you can see I'm long on judgemental, short on mercy at times.
4) I am as outspoken and inappropriate in person as I can be on this blog. Actually, I'm worse in person.
5) I am NOT a recovering alcoholic (Terry!). I do enjoy a drink once and a while.
6) I am an occasional smoker. BUT, not cigarettes-cigars. Though, there have been times I have smoked cigarettes.
7) I am a stickler for appropriate apparel at Mass. I know I have that reputation in blogdom. Believe it. It's all true. I usually look WAY overdressed at Holy Mass compared to almost everyone else and I don't care that I do-so there. BUT, I don't attack people at the door and make them change clothes. Oh, to have that power though...Tee-hee.
8) I was a member of St. Joan of Arc in Minneapolis for about 20 years. Not only that, I was a pretty prominent member (very involved, well known). Now, I'm about as popular in that part of town as the HIV virus.

I tag: YOU!

I really enjoyed this post and your funny answers. Especially the part about being about as welcome as the HIV virus! :)

Hon - I never said you were recovering, did I. But anyway - I'm just teasing you - I think drunks are funny. I don't know what I mean anymore.

If I knew you smoked, I never would have quit.

Redneck - I have a crush on Tina Fey too!

Cath - 20 years at St. Joan's? And active participation? Wow! You know much more than I do then. Would you ever name names? No, of course you wouldn't.

Cute answers, Cathy.
With all the talk lately about folks appointing themselves as arbiters of this and that...can I appoint you as the Pastoral Minister in Charge of Dress at the nearby parish? I could give you a name tag and a stick, but would have to take up a collection for your wages ;}

You smoke cigars? Cool! I've been wanting to try one! You'll have to recommend one for me :)

sanctus belle: Thanks. Good to see you-esp. right before the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. I always associate you with Our Lady. :-)

ignorant redneck: Hey, wait a minute! You can't come on here and upstage my answers!!!! j/k. Sounds like you have some stories, friend.

Ter: Tee-hee. My work is done. You are SO easy to guilt out. Ha-ha!

swissmiss: I could do that, but, then who would be left for Holy Mass? Really, *sigh*

Christine: I shouldn't encourage vice. Gosh, I'll probably be sued by the state of Minnesota since it's practically illegal in this state to even talk about smoking.

Are you really outspoken? Gee, I never would have guessed! LOL!

Number 2 is very true. People who make affirmations about this and that but can't substantiate their claims are full of hot air. Unfortunately, I can't prove this:0)

Thanks for participating!!



I, too, am a strong admirer of Tinay Fey. But I saw her first, so back off!! LOL!

Nice Job! Have you read Caryll Houselander?---she was outspoken, too, as was Alice Thomas Ellis----

I think you'd like them.....
Blessings to you on this Holy Vigil.
