Okay, I've Been Tagged...

by the lovely My Own Woman.

7 Things About Me.

1. I LOVE My favorite TV show (EVER) Law & Order. I watch the reruns, the marathons, all of them. SVU, Criminal Intent and the regular Law & Order and I have actually met and talked to Marishka Hargitay from SVU. She is drop dead gorgeous.
After that is (was) 6 FT Under, Dexter and I tape The Young and the Restless and watch it every night.

2. I once heard my German Shepherd Tony actually talk. He was sitting next to me on the couch, looked up at me and said "Whoa".

3. My real name is Maria (and don't EVER call me that).

4. I once saw a car crash as I was standing on the street corner, and ran after the car, pulled a woman from it, before it hit a tree and then threw up on her because I got scared.

5. I tried to enter the convent when I was 18.

6. I got arrested once when I was 19 when I was working at the White Tower Hamburger Restaurant.
A customer called me a bitch so I took the plastic ketchup bottle and squirted her all over with it and we both got arrested. Rode to the police station in a paddy wagon with her. The case was thrown out after a couple of weeks.

7. I think I'm the funniest person I know.

Good grief, I've only just done one of these! I have nothing left that's interested even if I did have something interesting in the first place.

I tend to write at the weekend at weekend, so I'll see what I can do.

I'm a Law and Order etc. fan. I'm warming to Shark, but I get miffed that attorneys are being detectives!

Glad to hear that heroism makes you vomit, I consider that to be a very healthy trait.

I escaped from the convent when I was 18! Wanna trade?

I love the idea of your revenge, all the violence of the unrestrained 'squirt' you little devil you.

Maria the nun? Like "Sound of Music?" I am SO singing, "How do you solve a problem like Maria" to you every day and twice on Wednesdays now!

You ARE the funniest person I know. I love that you squirted ketchup on the rude customer and I hate that you got arrested for it.

I promise to never call you by your real name but I must tell you that one of my daughters bears that name as her middle name and I love it!

I also have to say that it's been too damn long. When are you coming back out West?

Hi Suzy, tomato ketchup how very brave, I would love to be able to do that, instead I would hold all the anger in and go home and cry!
I will do mine soon, thanks x

I loved # 6.

As Tony says, "Whoa!"

Didn't know you actually worked at the White Tower. This adds to the story!

I think you have a lovely name, Maria. Why didn't you become a nun? Or is that a daft question!

Hey SUZY. As ever, you provoke some extreme reactions. I too love Law & Order but SVU is by far my favourite - am so not surprised MH is drop dead gorgeous in the flesh, she has a kind of aura about her.

Am working on mine so will post asap. Not sure I can be as witty and cutting as you have but hey I'll give it a go.

tried to enter a convent????

i saw a car crash once - saw a man die and it's haunted me ever since.

Now I'm feeling guilty because i was tagged by travelling but not in love and still haven't done it!!

btw Suzy - I see from Crystal's blog you work at a university? Maybe you can have some insight on my PhD dramas!

I'm dying to hear more about why you didn't become a nun.

The ketchup story is my favorite for sure. I can actually see a younger version of you squirting away.

Great to see your words here again. I miss you!

Not updated then huh! Never mind, I have you on my google reader now [only for super advanced bloggy people such as myself!] which should mean that you pop right up next time you blog. There again, I'm still having a little navigation problems where I delete things instead of selecting them. O.k. possibly not that super advanced afterall!

This is my calling card or link"Whittereronautism"until blogger comments get themselves sorted out.

Whoa, indeed! I believe you because I have two German shepherds and you should hear their conversations.

Thanks for visiting my blog :-)
