5 things?

My pal Pam of Soft in The Headtagged me to disclose 5 things about me that you may not know. It makes me wonder what you don't know about me?
I think it would be much more fun if we went around tagging folks and asking them, Do you use deodorant, do you wear granny panties, do you floss . . . but that may be too personal?
So, in the nature of wearing my heart on my sleeve, I will post the following:
1. I am related to George Washington. Now before you remark that GW didn't have children, I know that already. When I was a little kiddo, my Grandma Dolly would tell her grands all about our family heritage. We always thought she had a loose screw among the cobwebs. Then my dear Uncle Earl spent years and years doing family geneology and yep, it is documented fact. GW had a brother and we are related to him. Appears that we all descended from his loins on the wrong side of the sheets. Kind of related I guess; makes interesting conversation?

2. I have done makeup and hair in the past for celeb imitators at Universal Studios in Orlando

3. I played Bingo the night before my oldest one was born and won $88.00. I thought it interesting that he was born at 8 minutes after 8 in the evening the following day.

4. My hubby never calls me by name. He always calls me Baby.
5.I like to eat things salty and sweet together. You know, Popcorn and chocolate. Couldn't you tell by looking at my child bearing hips?

Now I am supposed to tag five more folks. Who do I think is game? Hmmmm.
Let's close our eyes and let the fickle finger of fate land where it will (sort of like how I plan on voting this year - you know, the eeney, meeney, miney, mo! method!)
Okay, here goes:
Robin of Bird in Hand
Kat of ScaredyKaterpillarsNoMore
Sharon of Greeneyez2
Courtney of Momma's Goodies
Cora of Hidden Riches

Now if you gals have already been tagged and played and want to sit this one out, that is fine with me.
And by the way, Happy St. Paddy's Day! I am on my way to kiss the Blarney Stone!
