So, I'm rather bored today. Not much to do with any of my part-time jobs today. I've been surfing the net most the morning checking out some of my favorite blogs that I read. I headed over to Stimeyland. She got tagged by Magneto Bold Too! to do a Meme of Eight.

Instead of tagging eight specific people, she tagged 'you'. Yea, pretty sneaky!

So, here goes my eight:

I'm glad you did this! I, too, am passionate about sleeping. That's a good one. I love the ones about "What did I just say yes too?" and "I'm too tired tonight." I also say at least one of those a lot. :)

"Wait, what did I say yes to?" Oh that totally cracked me up! That happens to me all the time!

Seems that everyone I read is putting swear words in their 'things I say often' Glad to hear I am not the only potty mouth!

Hmmn, that was tricky. Now I have to do that meme. Very sneaky there.

I say the big bad f-word much, much too often. I fear my son will say that before he says anything else. sigh.

Great post. I do love reading other people's memes: it is a great way to get to know them!

Happy early Thanksgiving!

Toni - We actually taught our son that cuss words were ok to say, but only in our house, and only when no one was over. Over the years the rules have been bent, he can say them in front of a small handful of our friends (my sister and my husbands BF are not offended at all). It was about being respectful to other people who find the words offensive. This of course started because one of his first words 'truck' didn't sound the way it should have.
