I'm It

lvsnm27 tagged me so here it goes

1) Each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves.

2) The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed.

3) At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

1) I almost married someone who wasn't Jewish and was willing to convert for me. I said no because my mother was able to listen to me talk about it without judging and without telling me not to. She never said what she was thinking that not only wasn't he the right guy for me because he wasn't Jewish, but also because he just wasn't the right one for me.

2) I've held a madagascar cockroach. I never saw myself doing this, but DB's a boy and I don't want him to be scared to do boy things.... so I have to show him there's nothing to be scared of.... which is why I can also bait hooks with night crawlers. My dad's jaw almost hit the bottom of the lake when he saw me do that one.

3) I love romantic movies that make me cry like Jane Eyre, The Lake House, Cinema Paradiso, Casablanca.

4) I've broken almost all my fingers (no, not at the same time) most from basketball, some from skiing, and one from punching someone. I'm not violent. I was just proving to a guy that I knew how to throw a punch. He threw a punch at the same time and our fists connected with a loud crack.

5) It's easier for me to clean someone else's house than my own. I hate my apt. and it doesn't matter how much I clean or straighten because I'm always pulling out more papers and I have boxes of legal documents stacked in my living room. It constantly reminds me of the predicament I'm in. My home is my office and that includes my bedroom.

6) I love when people introduce me to new music, any kinds. So if you enjoy something let me know.

7) I would really love to be a lawyer (part-time, see #8)and I know I'm good at it because I basically wrote the brief and reply brief for my appeal and won it unanimously. BUT I am soooooo sick of the system and that the lower court judges feel they can get away with not following case law because most people can't afford to appeal and have their decisions overturned.

8) I love being a mom soooo much, would like to have at least three more kids, and be able to stay home and take care of them until they go to school. I'm scared that as I get older it looks less possible for this to take place. DB is desperate for a sibling so much so that he doesn't care if it's a girl or a boy, "But Mommy I really do want a baby brother. I can teach him how to play basketball and I will pick up all my Legos so he won't choke on them."

Nice one thanks for not tagging me since I was tagged twice already, interesting stuff, we can always learn more and more about eachother :)

David_on_the_Lake said...

gosh you're a feisty one..

I'd never hold a a madagascar cockroach..I do hook live bait though..

Was The Lake House good? I have it sitting on my dresser for a month now...

I relate to the new music thing..I love discovering new sounds...(I'm going through an Idian phase now)

Hey Jake,
Didn't realize you already got tagged. I was also the second one who tagged Shoshana, and I was trying not to do that.

Hey Chaverah,
Looking forward to seeing your eight.

Hey SW,
At least I was able to see that you had been tagged before. btw - GO TO THE DOCTOR!!! I want to play ball with you... even if I haven't been practicing that much.

Hey David,
Nice to meet ya. Never say never... do you think I ever imagined holding that big hissing bug???

I really did enjoy The Lake House and that kind of surprised me. It's because Keanu Reeves didn't act as much like Keanu Reeves in it. I was also dating Bud/Charm at the time and the relocation thing was a sensitive issue. Plus I really enjoy the book Persuasion and Victorian authors.

I can't believe that you wrote about new music you're into and didn't let me know who or the titles!!

Jacob Da Jew said...

Jack's Shack said...

Good list. Casablanca is one of my favorite movies- love it.

come running said...

Day and Jake,
From the way you two wrote it sounds like I want to see this movie.

Hey Jack,
I can't believe I forgot to put that one up. Thanks for the reminder. You must be a real romantic.
