Weight Loss Mama tagged me for The Versatile Blogger Award!

What does this mean? It means I get to name 7 random things about me and then tag 15 of you to do the same. Here goes:

1. I only like under-ripe bananas; they have to be green.

2. I have had a terrible habit of chewing my nails ever since I was a kid. I finally willed myself to stop a couple months ago and they are growing out beautifully! I think I should treat myself to a manicure soon.

3. I have worked at my current job as an Executive Assistant for more than eight years.

4. I have a very strong distaste for seafood. I want to like it, but I just can't. Blech.

5. Hubs and I bought our current townhouse in 2008. We would love to upgrade in the next few years, and we hope to move into a "forever very long term home".

6. After all the hype, I recently acquired a taste for green monsters. For weeks I have been enjoying almost-daily fruit & (greek) yogurt smoothies with a big ol' handful of the green stuff. Yum!

7. Three of my favorite TV shows are ending this year (24, Lost, Flash Forward). What am I going to do with myself? (Run more...)

Tag! You're it:


Have a great weekend!

I used to like only very ripe bananas with freckles. Now I like them with a little green on the stem. Maybe someday I'll be like you :-)

Jocelyn said...

High five back to you!! I hate fish too, although I have no desire to try to like them. I don't like bananas but maybe I would enjoy under ripe ones? Hmmm...
Thanks for the tag! :)

Jill said...

I can't stomach a yellow banana either...ick! But I do save them if they're in the yellow stage til they're in the brown stage and make banana bread. Yum! Thanks for the award, will work on my 7 this weekend! Have a great weekend!!

ah, sorry I'm late but THANK YOU for the high five!! That's a cute concept :) I'm a fan!

I'm also going to send you all the green bananas - I think you're one of a small group that likes them ;) heh (kidding..sort of...)

On that green note, I have to admit I haven't enjoyed the GREEN monsters yet. Maybe I'll have to give them another try...
