I’ve been tagged . . .

So since I can’t work out, and I chickened out of walking because its CHILLY, I decided I would fulfill my TAG duties!

Sharon at http://owntheory.net/sharon/ tagged me over the weekend and Maggie at  http://www.thesaladgirl.com/ tagged me today!  This is what it is all about:

  • Link 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.
  • Let each person know that they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

So here goes!

  1. I love Tabasco!  Well, that and all things hot.  I think I currently have no less than 10 bottles of hot sauce in my fridge as we speak!  The best story though?  My loving Tony once bought me jalapeno microwave popcorn.  It was too hot, even for me!  Well, a certain person I worked with at the time would always help themselves to my popcorn without ever asking!  He would smell the popcorn and just get a Styrofoam cup and scoop away.  So I decided to bring the hot stuff to work. I had to pop it on a different floor so he couldn’t smell the heat, and then came back upstairs and microwaved a regular bag.  Right on cue, he gets his cup, but what he doesn’t know is I have only left out the spicy popcorn!  So off he goes and I count 1. . . 2. . . 3 and I hear “Holy Sh*t!”  He comes running out of his office and says: “why didn’t you tell me it was hot!” to which I replied “why didn’t you ask?”  He never took popcorn again after that!
  2. I have a twin sister.  Our senior year of high school she was not doing too well in math.  In fact, she needed to ace her final in order to meet graduation requirements!  I had a study hall when she had math, so I ended up taking the test for her.  When I handed the test in I said “my sister totally explained everything to me and I just got it!”  For years later my parents would say “Jennifer you can do anything if you put your mind to it – remember like that math final.”  I think we finally told them, but maybe not – so maybe my mom will find out 24 years after the fact!
  3. I am a magazine whore.  Mostly cooking/food related, but I think People magazine is a guilty pleasure of mine.  Sadly, I continue to make the same things over and over again even with all the magazines I get!
  4. My brother is Charlie of www.backtothefridge.com.  He has a cool diet book out that is really funny.  I was able to give a couple away to fellow bloggers at our Roni lunch yesterday!
  5. I met my husband Tony online!  Yep.  I found him on www.exoticdancers.com!  Just kidding – it was a precursor to match.com and we were so lucky to find each other because our paths in real life would never have crossed in a zillion years.  We’ll be married 8 years in December!   I love you Tony!
  6. I love my step-son Joe!  He was so cute when I first met him (and has turned into a handsome young man!).  He had this buzzed fuzzy hair and I remember one weekend he was on the computer and ran into the living room and shouted “I just won a million dollars on the computer!”  It turned out to just be a pop-up ad but it was cute!  And he played the saxaphone.  He also played football from 6th grade on.  I went to I think all of his Friday night games (may have missed one or two along the way) and was thankful this past Friday when it was 30 degrees that we weren’t sitting in the stands – some of those games got cold!
  7. So proud of my Hannah!  She just got her grades for the first semester of her junior year and made high honors – GPA 3.79!  Way to go Hannah!

So now I guess I have to tag 7 more people!

Whew!  Okay, lunch break is over.  See you at dinner!

  1. You aced a math test? Huh!

  2. Yep! It was VERY basic though – hence, why I was able to ace it!

  3. I love your blog! I’m so glad you commented and I found your blog! When I was diagnosed with Celiac my doctor told me that my pancreas had a very “limited shelf life”. So with my new gluten free diet I’m trying to be more conscious of sugar and balancing the highs and lows. Boy, it’s hard!!

  4. I love all of you facts! 🙂

  5. Yay Hannah!

    I love all of your facts 🙂

  6. confession: i am a magazine whore too.

  7. Thanks for helping me pick…although I still haven’t yet and am having him rework them because I just don’t want to send a black wedding thank you….I love spicy food too and that Jalapeno Popcorn sounds yum!

  8. I had to give up on magazines. They collect too quickly and I find so many great recipes online that I never get to the magazines. Thanks for the tag.

  9. Fabulous!! I’m like you with #3 😀

  10. Magazine Whore eh? Yes, me, too. Cooking and food ‘zines are never in short supply at my house. Chile Pepper (http://www.chilepepper.com/html/) might be a new one for you (since you like hot sauce). I have gotten a lot of good ideas out of that one and they don’t go over the top with ads either.

    Have you ever tried tearing out all the full page ads in Food & Wine? About a third of the magazine winds up on the floor.

  11. I loved your fun facts! I love magazines, too, but I read them at Barnes and Noble!

    I knew your brother was Charlie and Juliet is your sister, right?

  12. Great facts! And that is so neat how your met your husband online! ❤
