Tag! You're it!

Erin tagged me!
Da Rulez:
1.Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.3. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

Eight things about 'Moi'!

1. I'm a Leo - that says it all.

2. I'm also the Chinese sign of the Rat. Talk about a shock to the Leo, lol. The rat part of me keeps my feet on the ground. The Leo part of me snobs the rat. They always bicker.

3. Leo likes loud music and parties, rat hates noise and fuss. Luckily Leo sits on rat when we go out, and we usually have a great time. Rat sulks.

4. The Leo in me insists that the house be clean at all times. The Leo also insists I get a maid. The rat in me just passed out. Thrift is the rat's middle name.

5. I clean my own house. The Leo in me wails 'At least wear gloves so you don't ruin your manicure!' The rat snears.

6. The Leo in me loves jewelry. The rat in me hocks it whenever we need rent money. I bought two pearl neckaces for 15$ each. The Leo in me was horrified. Only 15$? They must be fakes. I hocked them for 60$. The rat in me sang all the way home. Leo sulked.

7. One of my cashmere sweaters got a hole in it. "Throw it out!" cried Leo. "Wear it to gym," said the rat. I wear it to my gym class. Leo is secretly thrilled.

8. Leos and rats both like good food. They seem to agree that chocolate is next to Nirvana. At least they got Something right!

I tag:
Wyn, Doug, Kate R., John Nez, Bernita, December, Lyn Cash, & Seeley!


Bernita said...

What did I ever do to you, Sam?

December Quinn said...

I'm a Leo too, but I'm year of the Ox. try living that one down with your Leo side. It's horrifying.

Jennifer said...

Bernita! I tagged you because I love torturing my friends! LOL
And December, I'm still laughing here. Yes, I can see where the leo would be horrified. Almost as bad as a rat. I kept looking, hoping the date would change and it would be tiger or something cool.

Fun meme! =)

John Nez said...

That's very funny! Leo & the Rat sound like great characters for a children's book.


Sam said...

Thanks Erica!
John - as in like the Odd Couple? LOL

Doug said...

The challenge on something like this is coming up with 8 things I haven't already told people. That, and finding 8 people to tag who won't hate me forever. Thanks a lot ;)

Sam said...

I'm sure there are lots of things we don't know about Doug...
Well, I suppose you can untag yourself. It's not like this is a chain letter with a 'You will get hit by a cement truck if you don't forward this in five seconds...'

and then again.

Daisy Dexter Dobbs said...

Oh, what a fun meme, Sam! I love what you did with Leo and the rat. Maybe like Samantha and Jennifer, hmm? ;-)

bookem, danny said...

try being an aries/rat I don't know if Im coming or going sometimes, someone once told me Im bi-polar .....I believe its just in my stars! Liked your post, it must have taken alot of clever thought.

Doug said...

mine's up!

Jennifer said...

Thanks Daisy, Danny, and Doug - yes, 'Schizo 'R-us', I suppose, lol!
(I'm sure Leo and rat fight over the pen name...)

Wynn Bexton said...

Is that kind of a play off the old Aesop fable about the Lion and the mouse? hahaha.
OK consider me tagged, but I can't reply tonight, my eyes are too gritty and I'm exhausted. Check back later for the response.
