    I couldn't pass by without saying anything Kim...:) a few things...1) I am so glad you are not tagging anyone :) these things get to be too much sometimes and take so much away from the real fun we all are here for...2) I LOVE all those bad habits you listed ...I do them all...Polyester made me laugh :) I still wear jewelery and nail polish though lol I wish you tons of success and will be praying you hit a lottery or something to buy that island ... AND I hate going to the dentist too darn it... I know we'd get along so well :)

  • Kim 18.7.07
     

    hi Pearl
    yeah went to the dentist yesterday.....don't like it ALL!!!
    and I have to go back again to have my wisdom teeth pulled out :(
    ha ha I'm glad it was only 5 bad habits....as I probably could have gone on for ever....
    and hey .....you can come and share my island if I win the lottery !!!!:)

    Thanks for the pleasant vote, Kim! I did have to wipe my brow in relief about not having to continue. It's amazing how many of these are swirling around right now. I do enjoy reading them, though. And thanks for wanting to share that desert island you'll own : )

  • kellypea 18.7.07
     

    P.S. Your Rockin' Blogger sticker is really great. You did it yourself, right? Excellent!

  • Kim 18.7.07
     

    I would have liked to have designed that great rockin girl badge Kelly but the credit belongs to "Oh, The Joys here"....who has designed quite a zany collection of badges to choose from....her link is on my rocking girl post...
    yeah it seems to be meme fever in the blogosphere doesn't it!!!!!and haha desert island.....you're invited !!!!

  • One Wacky Mom 18.7.07
     

    Kim, this was fascinating. Prune with cream cheese, eh? Well that's pretty wild!!! I should be eatin some of those! LOL. And that's so cool you would buy and an island and share it....you are my pal. Ever read some of my older posts about my boyfriend Johnny Depp. You should read January's post. Three 3 date rule.

    And I love that you love to do "Movie marathons with your family".

    And One Enchanted Evening is one of my favorites too!

    And as my buddy Kellypea pointed out, I love that Rockin Girl Blogger you have on your site, I didn't know Oh The Joys did that one as well!

    Thank you so much for putting me on this list. That is so kind of you! What a great friend I have found in you! I'm truly blessed!

  • Kim 18.7.07
     

    dried apricots and cream cheese are pretty good too...Ev....
    Johnny Depp is your boyfriend oh..my!!!!!.......very curious to read about that !!!!
    he is Charlotte's second favourite movie star :)
    "Oh the Joys here" also had a great rockin bat girl badge too in black and white....
    yeah we are real suckers for the movies.....especially the Harry Potter ...Lord of the Rings extended versions...
    One Enchanted Evening was the song that my dear Dad used to sing to my Mum all the time....after they went to see South Pacific (on their honeymoon)....
    an island like that one would be perfect ...if I win the lottery...;) we could all sit around in the sun and compare blog posts ha ha

    Dear Kim..thanks for the mention. I did the tags just to let others know that there are some good blogs to visit. That's not going to anymore for me of such things for sometime.

    Oh..I'll pray hard that you'll win the lottery. If you did, can I share the island too...?? hehehe..ee.. :-)

    Hi Kim, As your Mum I can't resist correcting your memory lapse, "One Enchanted Evening" -South Pacific was on our 1st wedding anniversary, my Mister Wonderful took me to see Kiss Me Kate - "So in Love", on our Honeymoon. I have no trouble with these memories. Love BB

  • Kim 19.7.07

  • Anonymous 19.7.07
     

    Oh, Dear Kim,

    Well I've gotta say that the one thing that surprises me the most is that one of your favorite toys is a pogo stick. I can't imagine you jumping around on it, kee.

    Your pic of the guy at the puter going crazy is hilarious! Reminds me of myself, haha!

    Thanks for mentioning me in your list of blogs :-)

  • Kim 21.7.07

    I was quite an expert on the old pogo stick...but only on the grass.....I borrowed that little computer guy from Alexander's my space blog.....too cute....and you did come to mind haha.....I know quite a few people who can relate to it!!!!!!!......

  • pearl 23.7.07

  • Kim 23.7.07

  • Kim 27.7.07
     

    haha Ev.....I know the feeling.....I included you in this meme....but I didn't tag any one....

  • Joanna 8.5.09
     

    Nice idea and thing to get started, helps build trust on your blog if your reader ship knows you better, good tactic.

  • Jerry 31.5.09
     

    Being a blogger is a bit like being a politician. You have to build a fan base and get support built up to be successful, your efforts are akin to politics :)
