Meme: Eight Things/Habits

Brooke and David tagged me. I usually don't do memes, but I'll make an exception this time.

1. I'm blunt — or so people have been telling me all my life.

2. I was privately educated through high school, then went to the university. I did not realize until much later how much my parents sacrificed in order to provide me a good education or how good an education I received — an education which made college a breeze.

3. I got married two weeks after graduating from college. The marriage has lasted 35 years. I attribute the lasting of my marriage to the fact that my husband and I took those vows seriously. After all, the vows were taken before the Lord!

4. Nearly all the furniture I have consists of inherited antiques. Each piece holds special meaning for me.

5. I was stalked by a Muslim prince in college. I didn't realize at the time that he really could have taken me back to his haram — or so my Musulim neighbor informed me some 25 years later. Hmmmm....

6. I love anything purple.

7. I play "grammar police" in odd places and have been known to take my red pen to restaurants' menus.

8. Until 9/12/01, I rarely read the world-news section of the newspaper. Since 9/11, I have read the world-news section every day.

I don't know exactly which bloggers have already been tagged. With apologies in advance, I hereby tag the following 8 bloggers: My dearest cyberfriend Mustang, my adored big brother and avatar-man supreme Warren, American Crusader, Mr. Beamish, Tom, Gayle, Elmer's Brother, and my "troll" Mr. Ducky. Mr. Ducky, as you don't have your own blog, you can leave your list here in the comments section.

I doubt that all whom I've tagged will do this meme. And that's okay.
