Love/Hate relationship with the Memes

Love. I see folks getting tagged to do them all the time and think, "why don't they tag me? I wanna play!" So I just enjoy reading everyone elses and move on.
Hate. Seems like big fun until I actually have to come up with answers! ha ha. I also hate putting pressure on anyone else to play along. SO.... I will tag people but don't do it if you don't wanna!

Jennifer, a Charleston area Homeschool mom tagged me with the Seven Random Things About Me Meme.
So here are the rules:

Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself.
Tag 7 random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs.
Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

  • I like to knit but I have an issue with knitter's ADD. I get bored with projects and don't finish them. I have an entire drawer full of WIPs (works in progress)
  • I'm practically deaf in one ear. It's a genetic thing. The cilia in my ears are dying. Fun stuff!
  • I haven't flown since I was a baby coming home from Germany. Dad was in the Army. I just have never had the occasion to fly. My dad actually has his pilots license and I haven't gone up with him either!
  • I've been married for 15ish years, and I don't have any intention of not being married for the rest of my years! I'm married to my high school sweetheart.
  • I'm a little (ha!) loud, a little boarish and I don't seem to have an "off position" on my mouth. I tried working on it for a long time but the older I get the more I've decided that I like it that way!
  • I love the color pink, no.... bright blue.... well.... light green is really nice... uhmm, I love colors! I love fall because it's colorful, I love spring because of the flowers. I love crayons but not paint. Paint always ends up like mud. Mud is depressing!
  • I'm like a raccoon. I love anything that's shiney and sparkly. Jewelry fake and real, although I don't wear much. Sparkly gifs on the net. Sparkly yarn. Fireworks. Sequins. Metallic fabric. You name it, I love it!

Now, seven random people.

I couldn't get the link to take you there - but I found this for autoplay on the fine tune site - let's see if blogger will let me do it!!!

To enable autoplay, you must add the parameter &autoplay=true to the URL, after your pinst ID#. Thus, the first part of the code for embedding your playlist should look like this:

< embed src="
pinst=ECFC9EB0CC5B406BABED5575E13D2410&autoplay=true" quality="high"

*Make sure to use the unique pinst ID associated with your playlist. The above code is just an example.

I do try! hee hee
I also found out that you love Norah Jones and Jewel - and I totally hadn't added them to my playlist - so you helped me too! ha ha

Anyway - it does that. FineTune is put together by the people that were formerly Napster and a couple others of those who got in trouble for the "file sharing" networks - and they way they can do this legally is if you can only load 3 songs from any particular CD onto a playlist, and they have to play them randomly like a radio station - so you can't skip around for only your favorite songs - they have to play at some point.
Interesting huh?
We learned something today - us homeschool moms. Write it down!

1. I'm partially deaf in my left ear too, not for the same reason thou.
2.I've been married almost 13 years to MY high school sweetheart, we've been together 16 years in February!
3. I like colors too, especially on the walls in my house.
4. I'm a jewelry fanatic, I love fireworks too!!

NOW I've got to figure out how to get my music to auto play on MY blog!!!!! I'm jealous!
