Fridays are for Fun

I have been tagged by Brittini.

The rules are:

1. Link to the person who tagged you.

2. Mention the rules.

3. Tell six unspectacular quirks of yours.

4. Tag six bloggers by linking.

5. Leave a comment for each blogger.

OK, here goes:

1. I like country music. I grew up in a pretty musical household and always enjoyed music, but I could never see the attraction to country music. Maybe it's because country has become more mainstream and more like pop music. I have no idea, but I have a paticular fondness for the Dixie Chicks, Shania Twain, Sugarland, and Gretchen Wilson. Shoot me now.

2. I have a pet pig. Seriously. A pot belly pig. She is actually my second pot belly pig. We had the first one until she died. I got this one 5 or 6 years ago. Most people don't know that pigs are as smart as dogs, and can be trained to do tricks.

3. I'm a grandma. My husband is older than I am, and my step-daughter is 22. She's married with her own family. My grandson is 2 years old. He calls me GG, which is short for Granny Grunt which my husband started calling me as a joke. Then everyone started calling me GG to make me mad, and he picked up on it. Now I'm GG.

4. I have a blanket. It's old and ratty. I sleep with it every night. If my husband tries to sleep with it I get mad at him because I claim he sweats on it. I take it with me on vacation. In fact, we were going to take the train to Chicago, but ended up driving because I coudln't figure out how to bring my blanket (it's large). I forgot it when I went camping, and I didn't sleep well the whole time. It's even been to Florida. I'm know- I'm pathetic.

5. I am still in college. Someday I hope to get done.

6. I am a fanatic about my teeth. I sucked my thumb until I was 12, which left me with the most crooked teeth you've ever seen. Once I got braces, I got pretty crazy about cleaning them. I brush several times a day. Although I never floss. Isn't that weird?

Done. Now I tag:

CLC, No Swimmers, Kristi, Aunt Becky, Busted, and Katie

I don't always comment, so some of you probably don't even know I am a regular reader of your blogs. But I'm watching you. :)

I'd gladly trade either of my dogs for a pig. That is the coolest thing I've seen in ages.

And I'd be honored to participate, it should take some of the inevitable heat my recent post will cause.

how cool that you have a pig! And seriously you aren't pathetic for having a "lovey" as they are called now. I still have my blanket that my great grandma quilted for me. And I still sleep with it.
