Not really. It's a TonyTonyTony!

Kyle tagged me for the 8 things about me meme. I already did this one and you can see my responses here! Therefore, I'm doing responses for Tony -- who couldn't possibly answer himself.

The Rules: Once tagged, you must link to the person who tagged you,then post the rules before your list, and list 8 random things about yourself. At the end of the post, you must tag and link to 8 other people, visit their sites, and leave a comment letting them know they've been tagged.

My changes to "The Rules": I am not tagging anyone and I'm only doing 7.

Tony's 7 random things -- In first person (just pretend)

1. I share a birthday with:
Claud Monet 1840 -- and then it goes down-hill
Joseph McCarthy 1908
Condoleezza Rice 1954
Yanni 1954
Janine Lindemulder 1968

2. I love orchids and own more than 30. I've been playing with these exotic flowers for nine years. My first Orchid was this Sherry Baby. Whenever one blooms it will be posted on this blog!

3. I am an impulsive shopper. Especially when it comes to shoes, clothes, sheds, movies, magazines, food, yarn, dog goodies, video games, CD's, DVD's, and the list goes on and on. Just put it in a commercial or a TV show and I'll bite.

4. Did I say video games? I am a video game nerd. How many fags can say that?

5. I am manorexic. Now I don't have the actual eating disorder that causes me to feel fat. In fact, I usually feel too thin. But I can Not eat for days. I forget to eat. If Eric didn't make me eat, I would waste away.

6. I am a nurse and I work in a nursing home. I know that's not terribly interesting. But, I don't like old people and I don't like sick people. Sound strange? Well, I don't want a job that I like because I don't like working. That's why I only work two days a week. I get all forty hours in those two days and then I get five days off!

7. I love gardening. You may have seen some pictures of our flower garden this year. Well here are some new pics.

Orchids are intimidating ; they just look like they want to die on you. Love people who can get them to grow tough. I used to sit in the orchid room of the National Botanical garden in DC a lot. : )

I admire people that can make flowers grow - mine die as soon as they get in to my house or garden... How is your Elfin? I loved that one - has it got a ponpon yet?? And Eric - thank you for the very nice comment on my gloves, but the only talent I have is a natural clutterer gene. Take care!

40 hours in two days? Holy crap.

I truly do not understand #5 - unfortunately, I NEVER forget to eat. I wish I would forget once in a while :-)

It could be worse, you could share a birthday with Anna Nicole Smith and Gary Hart.
