I have been tagged by Cornflower. Tagged {enough said}. I think ’tis quite an interesting tag, actually.

_______________________________________________

Tag Rules:

1).The player starts with eight random facts about herself or himself.

2).The person who is tagged must post on his or her own blog his or her answers and post the rules first.

3).Then the player must pick eight people and tag them. Also leave them a comment that lets them know that you tagged them. You can write who you tagged on your blog also!

I have an odd habit of talking to myself frequently. No, I’m not a wacko, I just like to think out loud, read out loud, write out loud, act out the characters I’m writing about in order to get the dialogue just right…and don’t be fooled, I’m still mostly a visual learner.
I’m left handed. However, since most scissors are designed for right-handed individuals, I’m quite ambidextrous with the scissors.
I love to go barefoot all the time…inside, outside…My feet are so tough now I walk over just about everything. I’ve even been in the chicken coop barefoot (haha). Of course, I’ve had to maintain a reasonable amount of discipline about my shoes because snakes and scorpions reside in our area.
I drink coffee every morning.
I have a little 18-karat gold necklace that my grandparents bought for me in the United Arab Emirates for my 14th birthday, and I have worn it for 3 years straight – never taking it off to swim or shower or sleep (I ought to start a Guiness World Record). You’ll see the necklace in all fairly recent pictures of me.
I take cod liver oil almost every night.
I have a little embroidered pillow featuring a blonde and brunette sister with the text, “God Made Us Sisters, Hearts Made Us Friends” – it was a birthday gift from Rachel many years ago and I still sleep with it every night. Every time we got over an argument we did this little poem ritual (we still use it occasionally) that went “God made us sisters, hearts made us friends; we shall say sorry so our hearts will mend.”
I love to write with fountain pens.
Now for my tagging…

______________________________________________

Now for the rational part of the entry. I must confess that I may not be posting much this month (or at least this week or two), as I will be working to quickly complete my screenplay. I have started contacting production companies, and I also have a lot of other projects going on at home and have visitors in and out. I still enjoy hearing from everyone, however! I don’t mind getting comments.

MAY GOD BLESS,

~Amanda~

Neat!

Hi Amanda,

Thanks! 🙂

I’d love to read it! I tried writing a screenplay before, but it didn’t quite work… especially since I had no idea what I was doing. lol

My family and another homeschool family went to the beach today. And.. I couldn’t swim (woman reasons). So the one time I can go swimming – I can’t. So I had to sit in the sun, and it was almost 100 degrees. So… hot…. lol

Saturday, August 11, 2007 – *POP* Hi!!!

Hi Amanda!
I decided that you would be pretty much the only person I’ll comment while we’re staying at the cottage. Well, I think I might change my mind, but it’s awful hard keeping up with so many people, especially when other people need access to the laptop. Anyway…*SIGH* I really hope that they don’t demolish 42 Ripley!
Amanda, did you look up the shows we watched last night? Did you ever find that C.S. Lewis biopic thingy on IMDB? Or that Smallville show? What was that girl’s name again? And what else was on…OH yeah! That weird movie. Anyway, I guess we don’t know the name of it.

I shall GO now. I might look up some of the stuff on IMDB.com!

Haha! A funny commercial is on right now…

I also can claim ownership to the first 4 of those random facts, I am left handed, but I use my right hand on the mouse. Or left hand, doesn’t really make a difference 😉

Oh, I just read through your tag. You’re left handed?? So am I!!! I’m the only left handed person in my family, and out of a lot of people I know. I get it from my mom’s father. lol It’s cool to be left handed.

Hello Amanda,
I believe I have read your blog before, but I am not sure I commented. Forgive me if I have, I may have forgotten. In any case, your blog is lovely, and your posts look interesting and full of thought. I would be honoured to add you to my friends list, if that is alright with you. God bless.

We must protect out wildlife! Don’t want to get those turtles smashed 😉

I was reading about road signs the other day, and they said that most of the signs make pedestrians more comfortable on the street. They said they should make them more wary, because there was usually an accident where the signs go up. But turtles don’t read signs 😉

Thanks for coming by! I’ll try to post the tag soon.

Yes, I agree.

The media does also have a large part to play in the issues. If we just left the guys in the middle east alone what would have happened? More innocent people would have been killed. It is all in the way you look at it.

I think a lot of people don’t understand, like your friend.

Hey Amanda!
I enjoyed reading your random facts. 🙂 I only share a couple with you…I go barefoot a lot (ALWAYS barefoot indoors), and I sometimes talk to myself. lol But I’ve never had coffee or written with a fountain pen, and I’ve never worn a piece of jewelry for 3 years straight. I thought 2 weeks straight was a long time!!
Hope you’re having a great week! Good luck with your screenplay!
Love,
Briana
