Something You Might Not Know About Me...


It's been ages since I've been tagged...and you know what?

1) I sort of like being tagged. It makes me feel like I'm loved.

2) The theme of this tag is to disclose seven random things about yourself. I find the theme and of talking about myself makes me a little nervous at this moment.

3) I was tagged by One Gals Musings who I just "met" online last week or so...since Thursday Thirteen...and I thought her blog was one of the coolest set of posts and really felt interested in linking her blog and following her posts.

4) A lot of people might not know that I love Peek Fream Fruit Creme Cookies. I used to always have at least one package around the house or studio. I haven't seen them in stores for ages. In Toronto in the summer I bought some knock offs. They were okay but not as crispy textured.

5) My name is Candy and I am a chocoholic. Actually I have a massive sweet tooth that I just barely ever encourage. I hardly
ever eat chocolate...I just won't stop.

6) My right hand is named Keanu Reeves and my left hand is named Brad Pitt. One Gals Musings said in her "7 random unknown things" about herself...that she dreamt of someone famous: Tom Selleck. I've had many dreams with famous people, Jim Carrey, Bono, Martin Short, Keanu Reeves, Drew Barrymore,Angelina Jolie...some of them sexual but most of them not. I have always understood dreams with celebrities to be dreams about "gods/goddess" because famous people are omnipresent. I find dreams with famous people in them absolutely hilarious...even though some of these very dreams have been intensely spiritual for me.

7) I watch...Real House Wives of Orange County faithfully.

Since most people I seem to know online do not like getting tagged...I'm supposed to tag 7 folks for this meme...but I can't do that to you. If you feel like posting in response to this activity...let me know. Leave me a comment either way and I'll link your blog right here:

1) Fond of Snape 2) One Gal's Musings 3) Nichtszusagen 4) Midnight Moon Cafe 5) From A Lofty Perch 6) Betty The Geek

oooh, I remember Peek Freans! Haven't thought about those in years. I once had a dream about Robert Plant. I'd driven 4 hours to see him in concert and he canceled. So ... even better...in my dreams, we walked and talked through forest and meadow. It was great!

I think you did a great job on this meme. Part of the fun of it is the randomness, and you leapfrogged from me to sweets to celebrity dreams to the Real Housewives of Orange County. Thanks for playing. (And thanks for saying such nice things about my blog.)

Hee! I'll remember #1 next time.

I dreamed once that I was cooking in a church basement with Jennifer Crusie and Nora Roberts. Not sexual, just odd.

I'll do a post on this, but it'll probably take me a few days to get around to it.

*LOL* I'm a chocoholic too.

I like these because you get to know people in ways that you normally wouldn't during conversation. I WISH I would have a dream about Jolie. How I wish we could have had a glimpse of them in NOLA! I can't wait for Beowulf to show up in the theater. Now, I know I should probably include chocolates in future packages!

Janet ...I know, what happened to Peek Freans? Wikipedia says "1949 saw the establishment of their first bakery in Canada. The bakery, which is in East York, Ontario, is still in production." Welll...I haven't seen them in grocery stores! I think maybe they are less popular because of low carb diets and no-name competitors. What a great dream story you have there. You should write to Plant and maybe ask him for passes when he tours with Krauss!

The Gal Herself, well this was a fun meme. Some tags seem difficult if they are too literal. I like the ones you can just float with, thanks for thinking of me.

Darla, yeah now just watch I'll be tagged like crazy or something now. I think dreaming about writers is very sophisticated!

Tempest Knight...seriously...I could eat one of those giant chocolate bars...like Lindt, no problem.

Gardenia, thanks for taking the tag! Choclate is always popular. Yes, isn't Jolie the most interesting persona? I wasn't surprised at all when I had a dreama bout her. I find even when in a rush at a grocery store...I will stop and look if her pic in on a mag cover. She is compelling. I want to see Beowulf too. What a story! Have you ever read the Seamus Heany version? Wonderful.

I did this tag about a month ago or so. But usually I end up hitting some one else that has been tagged.. Its hard to know who is going to tag who.. But great post though. Interesting stuff about you.

I love the housewives too. But I'm never quite sure why? This season seems even more over the top to me.

I'd forgotten you named your hands. That's funny to me, especially cos they're kind of Hollywood hunks. Um, is this a sexual thing?!

Beowulf is playing in 3D in selected cinemas over here, so you may be able to see it that way near you too, if that's your thing.

Darla said...

Okay, I played--finally! It was harder than I expected.

Hi Candy,

You reminded me of an awesome dream I had about Anthony Kiedis, of Red Hot Chili Peppers, we were madly in love and we got married! It was SO real.
I love the random tagging thing.
