I'm It

A meme's making it's way through the my blogger pals' sites--ack! So I've been tagged by Sharon Hinck and Deena Peterson.

Never was very good at the whole tag thing. I was a swimmer in high school, a runner after that--no team sports in my past. Hopefully I can get it in gear long enough for this.

So. My eight random facts:

1. When I was 12, I took commercial acting lessons (and yes, the camera does add 10 pounds).

2. After one said lesson, I chased Robby Benson down in a Bob's Big Boy parking lot and asked for an autograph (such a cutie).

3. Again when 12, attended a taping of the Donny and Marie Show--and got Donny, Marie and Jay Osmond's autograph (see the pattern here?).

4. I used to be a secret shopper for Taco Bell (Yo quiero...).

5. Used to drive a '66 mustang (yeah, baby!)

6. Spent a week kickin' it up in London with a gal pal about a month before my wedding (cheerio and all thot rot).

7. Found out I was pregnant with baby #1 the day after a 20 mile training run for the LA Marathon (oops).

8. My husband calls me "Jewel" (yeah, say it, say it: Ahhhh...)

Okay, I'm tagging these gals: Vader's Mom, Dawn Kinsler, (who probably won't respond since I forgot to answer her tag a few months back), Pastor Mac, Tickled Pink, Damselfly, and an open invitation to three more out there...if you take the challenge, let us know!

Btw, these are the 'rules':
1. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
3. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
4. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged, and to read your blog.

Oh, the life of a Cali girl. The only autographs I've ever gotten are of the munchkins of Wizard of OZ fame.

Deena said...

Ha! You're so much fun to play with!!! And I'm not SO jealous about Robby Benson AND Donny Osmond...I'm not, I'm not, I'm not...if I say it enough, maybe it'll be true:0)

Damselfly said...

You're so funny and, dare I say, cute? Thanks for tagging me. Come take a look!

Dawn said...

Ha! Surprised you!
I did respond. :)

Enjoyed your list. Very fun!
Just finished posting mine.

20 miles?!?!? Did I read that right? And pregnant to boot. That's funny! What I'd give to be able to run 20 miles! (Oh wait, that would require exercise!)

Julie Carobini said...

Hey Gals--Thanks for playing along. Now quit tagging me, lol! And Georgina, yeah I was pregnant, but didn't know it (although the sluggish running shoulda tipped me off.) And that baby's nearly 16 years old now--mama mia!

Cherrye said...

Hi! I found your blog through Pastermac's. Congrats on your novel - I entered for a chance to win...we will see!

Unfortunately, I live in Italy so, purchasing that book (at least for now) is out of the question! :-)

Happy Mother's Day.

If I knew you when we were 12 I would have been sooooo jealous! Donny & Robby... ;O0

I just did my 8 random things too, I was also tagged by Deena.

Sorry I missed the Friday Foto Beach Scene. We have a beautiful beach here in Michigan!

Julie Carobini said...

Didn't know there were so many Donny and Robby B fans out there, lol. And hi, Cherrye! I sooo want to go to Italy! Maybe you'll win and at least my book will go-ha!
