Dirty Laundry

I probably won't be on until late tomorrow, we have a busy morning and day ahead, so here is a meme to keep you busy!

I am going to do the 8 Random Things About Me meme again!

1.     My childhood dog was named Pepper, and her mom was named Salty.  I always thought that the name thing was pretty clever on my parents part.  We got her when I was 6 months old, so I was not involved in the name choosing.

2.     I once changed clothes in the passenger seat of a car while on the NJ Parkway en route to the shore.

3.     Although I have fished, I have never baited my hook with a worm.  Yes, I know, very girlyish of me.  <shrug>  It isn't because I don't like the worms, it is because I don't want to inflict the hurt on the worm.

4.     I used to love doing what we called 'chinese firedrills' at red lights.  At the red light, everyone jumps out of the car, runs around the car yelling and waving your arms, and then jumps back in the car.  Silly, I know, it was high school aged thing.  The looks on the faces of the cars behind you made it worthwhile!

5.     I have never seen 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show' in a theatre.  Sad really, I know. 

6.     I never changed a diaper before my own child's. (but never thought twice about doing that)

7.     Although I never wear a traditional perfume anymore, my favorites are Shalimar and Chanel No. 5.  I stick with a very light coconut or vanilla body spray now.

8.     I loved gymnastics and could do a cartwheel on the balance beam and tumblesaults, forward and back.  I could also do cartwheels, roundoffs, front handsprings, walkovers, splits, etc. 

Okie dokie... that is it for me!  You are on your own!  Go have some 4th of July fun!

I will fill you all in tomorrow on the parade and the day at the movies!

be well,
Dawn

YOU are the perfect person to take to a theater to see Rocky Horror!!!  The crowd would adore you AND.... you are a "virgin"!  That's what the audience would call someone who's never done RH before.  Memories....I need to go see it again.

That's so funny about the dogs name cause I always wanted two labs.  One white or golden and one brown or black.  I wanted to name them salt and pepper! LOL
Have a great 4th of July.

Enjoy your day! I don't recall ever changing any diaper but my own son's either. And I was almost 40 years old when I had him. --Cin

My son Raymond loved gymnastics.  He was a student for years and then taught it for years. I thought the balance beam was the scariest equipment ever.  Those little gals who do all those somersaults and hard routines on that keep me holding my breath.  I have watched a lot of gymnastic meets on TV.  At thirty Raymond formed a theater company but all that training helped him to become a superb actor and director, body aware.  You learn a lot about people from their memes!  I just can't do them, but I like to read them   Gerry

Have a wonderful 4th with your family, Dawn!   Love your tag at the bottom.  Big Hugs, Chris

Had two dogs named Butch, don't know why.  I've changed clothes in a car as well, but I wasn't driving, were you?  I hate fishing, everything about it, not just the worm.  I used to do chinese fire drills as well, must be a right of teenagehood.  I've seen the Rocky Horror Picture Show IN a theatre too many times, maybe I'm the sadder case.  Used to change my sister's diapers (they are 10 and 13 years younger than me).  I too love Chanel No. 5, but am currently wearing some version of j.lo.  I was only moderately good a gymnastics.  Okie dokie!  De ;)

I can't fish because I feel too bad for the fish. I love to lay on the front of the boat in the sun,though.
I have changed clothes in a car almost as much as in my bedroom.
I used to do Chinese Fire drills with my Girl Scout troop!
Love
Marti

Wow we have chinese fire drills in common and I would have loved to have had more gymnastics lessons as I could do cartwheels and some other stuff.  This came in handy when I was doing coaching for cheerleading the past two years.  My mom loves loves chanel no 5.  I know I have changed clothes in the car a few times too... it's kinda tricky.  LOL.  I don't put the bait on either.  Hope you have a great day!
Hugs,
Lisa

Loved your 8 random things meme.  Where did it come from?  I have never seen it before.
I remember Chinese firedrills.  Ok, you are showing your age, LOL!
When I was little I had a cat named Nickel, and a cat named Penny.
