How random can I get?

I've been tagged for a fun meme by MIP at Perfectly Imperfect! I promise to do a better time passing on the love this time.Seven random facts:

  1. I LOVE McDonald's Hot Mustard sauce. If they sold this stuff in bottles at Wal-Mart, I would buy it for full price with no coupon!

  2. I also love fun socks. I like Steve Madden ones the best, but any thin cotton socks with cute prints will do. Currently I'm wearing gray socks with a white and bright green argyle print.

  3. Speaking of socks, I'm very particular about where the seam is. If it's on the outside of my pinky toe or on the bottom of my foot, I have to take my shoe off and adjust immediately.

  4. I spent several years convinced that my grandmother sang on the Lawrence Welk Show. She told me this -- obviously in jest -- and I believed her. I told people. They didn't know who Lawrence Welk was, though.

  5. My nickname in college was Pottymouth. It's tied more into my maiden name, but I did (and sometimes still do) have a tendency to talk worse than a sailor. The name was given to me, because I kept nagging people about what my nickname was. The girls who gave it to me, thought it was ironic. Those that knew me, thought it was ironic that others thought it was ironic. Confused?

  6. I am addicted to Coca-Cola. It was Diet Coke before Little Elvis was born, but I was worried about NutraSweet. Once I stopped nursing, I attempted to go back to DC and it was NOT the same. The good news is, it was a 3-can-a-day habit with the unleaded nectar. With the fully loaded stuff, it's one can. Tried cutting it out yesterday and spent the entire day with the worst headache ever!

  7. I am a huge car singer. I will belt out just about whatever is on the radio. I probably look like someone trying out for American Idol while I'm at a stoplight. But Little Elvis seems to be fine with my singing... for the moment anyway.

I'd like to know more about these folks:

Thanks! I love the seven random things tag. I have done it before but that will just make it more challenging this time around.

Your socks are very cute. I remember when argyle socks were all the rage in elementary school and they are still in style.

I was once addicted to Pepsi but can say I cut the habit cold turkey. The first week was hell. I had headaches, the jitters and was in a foul mood. The second week I just drooled wanting the stuff. By the third I was noticing I felt way better than when I was drinking it. Now, I am totally soda free for over ten weeks. I do miss it when we go out to eat but I am glad to lose those extra calories. Maybe give it a week and then see how it goes. Just expect to feel like crap for a week and then you will feel better off of the stuff.

Thanks for the tag and I will bet to it...but probably not until Sunday or Monday.

As for your random items...let's see.

1) I am so with you on the Micky D's Hot Mustard Sauce. I also order it for my fries!

2) Living in Sunny, FL...I usually don't wear socks, but when I worked outside the house, I had crazy socks that I kept in my desk. I would wear them around the office instead of my high heels. All my co-workers loved it and would buy me crazy pairs to add to my collection!

3) The seams from socks doesn't bother me as much as the seams from panty hose! Those drive me up the wall!!

4) My grandmother still watches Lawrence Welk reruns every day, along with MASH and 7th Heaven.

5) I do have a tendency to have a potty mouth too...but I have been trying really hard to use "Mommy Safe" words "Oh Shoot!" or "Darn It All!". I've even been known to let a "Fluff Bomb" slip out too!

6) I am a COKE lover too! Have been since I was a little kid. If there is only Pepsi then I will drink water! And it was so hard during both pregnancies. The unleaded stuff just isn't the same

7) I love to sing in the car and the shower. My girls love it. Kyla sings along with me, while Bryleigh giggles and squeals. Won't be too long before she joins the "singing" group!

Have a great weekend and thanks again for the tag! I might post well as some more zany things about myself. Try to contain yourself from the excitement!
