This Licks

Are you kidding me? So there I was, working on a post where I told all of you the story of how I lost my virginity, and then I got tagged!


Yeah, that’s what I wondered too, UNTIL I wandered over to Bella’s blog (she’s the tagger – I’m the taggee) and read the rules. So here we go (for those uncool cats who aren’t in the know – much like I wasn’t – here’s the premise):

The rules of the game:

A) Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog. (Redhead note: Done and done.)

B) Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself. (Redhead note: Isn’t that what I do every day around here?)

C) Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs. (Redhead note: Ah shit – everyone I know that reads and comments on this blog is already getting tagged. What is this, a race?)

D) Let each person know that they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog. (Redhead note: MORE work for me to do – this bites the big one.)

So here goes, 7 things…

1) I have written a romance novel in my lifetime. Yes, you read that correctly – I wrote one.

2) I have had a one-night stand before. In other words, I slept with a guy whose very existence I had been unaware of just 24 hours before bedding him. And after the night was over I never saw him again (although weirdly – doesn’t he know the rules? – he did call me). No, I’m not proud of any of this, it was clearly not my finest moment, BUT I don’t regret it. (Still, I would like to point out that this was a one-time thing – I’m not normally that easy.)

3) Ever since my nephews were born my biological clock has been ticking. SHUT UP – I don’t want to talk about it.

4) Discounting family, I’ve never been in love.

5) Dates (the fruit not the kind that show up on a calendar) make me sick. Literally.

6) I was so shy while growing up that I couldn’t even call and order a pizza until I was a senior in high school – something about not wanting to talk to someone I didn’t know on the phone. Yes, I realize how fucked up that is. And yes, it is amazing how much I’ve changed since then.

7) I hate thong underwear. I know pantylines are passé, I know thongs are sexy, and I know everyone else wears them, but I HATE them. They’re uncomfortable and the idea of them creeps me out. So there. (Um…having said that – I do own a few pairs and have been known to wear them when necessary. The lesson here: My righteous indignation only goes so far.)

And now for my tagging – sorry guys: mcbias (that hiatus is going to have to wait buddy), jack, danny, dotm, rs27, harry, and kat.

CRAP....I tagged you in MY post only to find out you were ALREADY tagged!!! Does this mean I have to tag someone else?? Or...does it mean you're just that popular???

Jack Cobra said...

Just out of curiosity...if I don't continue this virtual game of tag on my site, what happens?

Redhead said...

kat: Nah, I'm not that popular; I see us as an incestuous little group where overlap in a game like this is inevitable. Hell, I tagged you second - go ahead and tag me again, I won't mind.

jack: Hmmm, good question. Anyone? Anyone? Ah just do it - I want to know 7 more things about jack cobra by the end of the day. Unless of course you're not man enough to go through with it.

Jack Cobra said...

How about this?? MCBias* and I will both fill out this questionnaire thing if you promise not to do anymore Book Club

*I have not talked to him about this but I feel confident he will follow through with it.

ThirtySomething Kat said...

LOL...AFTER I tagged you, I see you tagged me as I was typing my post. Hehe...

I'm with you on the thongs. I tried so hard to like them so I could be sexy...but goddammit I hate them. I own a few pairs that only get worn when I have NO choice. I'd rather go commando, as sick as that is.

rs27 said...

I am terrible at tag. Usually I run around and give up.

But I like virtual tags.

I like virtual anything really.


Head meet gutter.

Redhead said...

jack: Hey, if you can get mcbias to agree, I'm game.

kat: I'm STILL sad about your Rhodesian Ridgeback story. Speaking of which - how much cooler than people are dogs?

rs27: Cool - go forth and share 7 things about yourself.

MCBias said...

Sigh, ok, I surrender. If it means no book club, even though I wouldn't be around to read it anyway, I'm in. I know the list isn't the best; I just wasn't very creative today.

MCBias said...

Ugh, I am a downer today. I should say, I wouldn't have done it for most people :-) but hey, if it's for you and it saves the world from book club, no problem.

Bella said...'re such a good sport! Can I just tell you how stressful that 'tagging' stuff was for me?

I think it's cool that you wrote a romance novel. Even if it was just one. Was there lots of sex in it???

:) Bella

I'm more Book Club posts:

Redhead said...

mcb: Seriously dude, you can't take a month off from visiting me here and bashing me - I'm NOT cool with that. (Oh, and thanks for playing the stupid game; I realize that you and jack think it's for a good cause...pussies.)

bella: I found it stressful too! What's up with that?

Trust me when I tell you that while there was sex in my romance novel (it's a romance novel after all), it was NOTHING compared to what I shared with everyone in my *One and Only* book club entry. Hell, I let my mother read my novel - 'nuff said.

jack: It was for the greater good jack. You and mcb kept your word, so I'll keep mine...pussies.

This game involves entirely too much work. Good times though. Can I get that photo posted of you so I can add you to my list of fetish redheads? Thanks.

rs27 said...

I have played your little game and I have won.

Redhead said...

harry: Not a chance in hell you're getting a photo of me, but nice try.

rs27: Well played, but no one beats me - let's say we tied.

Jack Cobra said...

I believe I more Redhead's Book Club. Actually, we all won. The parade is this afternoon
