Tag-o-rama

Well, well, well. I've been tagged for the first time by Tara from Swan Diamond Rose, another first-timer. I have to say I feel a bit like I'm back in middle school (alas) and I haven't, for one, been picked last for the dodgeball team. Luckily nobody here has to see my woeful ball-throwing/catching "skills" in action.

The rules are that I have to tag 7 other people and tell you 7 things about myself. I'm going to have fun with this and try to be a little weird and a little random. Just because.

1 - As a kid, Halloween was my favorite holiday aside from Christmas. I would get so excited about it that I would insist on getting my Halloween costume in July. I loved the idea of roleplaying...I think I would have been an actor if I wasn't so timid and award. In first grade, I wore a magenta satin astronaut suit, complete with silver space-girl wig. No joke. The next year, I was Carmen Miranda - fruit headdress and all!

2 - Which funnily leads me to the next item - while I will happily wear (admittedly fake) fruit on my head (given the proper occasion), I do not eat it.

3 - In 6th grade, I sang in the children's chorus for the Broadway performance of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolored Dream Coat in Chicago, and got to hang out with fellow cast member Donny Osmond and look at the videos he brought of his new black lab. At that point, I didn't even know who Donny Osmond was or why he was famous, so it is really much less exciting than it sounds. We wore rainbow-colored clothes (I was in green tie-dye) and had to practice our perkiness.

4 - I just moved to an area which I have decided is the best neighborhood in Chicago, on account of its proximity to Lincoln Park and the lake, charming old homes, fun shops, and 24-hour Starbucks and 24-hour gym! emphasis on the latter, as I am definitely a 24-hour girl.

5 - The color scheme for my new apartment is going to be yellow, green, white and "natural" (I'm afraid of the word beige). I'm super-excited.

6 - Since my summer school course is reading-lite, have been reading a lot of books this summer. I finished The Once and Future King yesterday (for nostalgia's sake) and I'm almost done with The Sixteen Pleasures. I'm a bit of a historical-fiction freak (next, I start Philippa Gregory's Earthly Pleasures.

7 - I'm a huge Harry Potter fan and can't wait for the last book's release. But that doesn't mean I'd put Potter stuff in my home!

Now you know a bit more about me than you ever wanted to. I've decided to tag...
Shiny Squirrel, A Cup of Jo, Pink Mohair, Another Shade of Grey, Armas Design, Blogue Fonetik, and last but not least, Eclectic Detective.

Thanks for the tag ma. However, I was just tagged last week by drey so I am going to have to decline your offer. :) As consolation, I am going to link you up on my site. I just realized I did not have you in my list. :) Hope this makes up for it.

I am so jealous! I always wanted to be in the chorus of Joseph as a kid!

Hi there! Thanks for the tag, but I've already done this one--or one very much like it. Have a look: http://eclecticdetective.blogspot.com
/2007/01/attack-or-rather-tag.html. As much as I love talking about myself (and I truly do love talking about myself!), the thought of tagging other bloggers gives me hives. Tell you what, how about a compromise? I'll try to post 7 things about myself soon (a little thought first), but I'm afraid I'm going to break the chain and not tag anyone else. No one has ever been mean about it, but I guess some people don't like getting tagged as much as I do (I find it flattering!)

Hey guys...
no worries about the tagging thing! I'm sorry I didn't pay more attention to who got tagged already and whatnot, so no harm is done. I'm not the tagging nazi, y'know ;)

LauraB, believe me, we were all huuuuuge dorks and it was rather less cool than it sounds. We spend a lot of time on a smelly school bus communting back and forth and in an even stinkier rehearsal room. The best part was all of the school I got to miss because of matinee performances. One kid in my class resented me so much for it that he called me Joseph all the way through high school...boy I felt special ;)

Ha! I just went back to these comments and read what you wrote about being in the chorus. Glad to know that it wasn't as glamorous as it seemed to me at 8 or 9 years old!
