Dee In A Nutshell

Feed Me, Love Me, Never Leave Me.

Does this make us Tagren?


It took getting tagged to get me back here, I didn’t even know what this tagging was till today, every blog I’m going to has something or other to do with getting tagged, I have no idea who to tag but I will post 8 random facts about myself, here goes.

Oh, I’m supposed to put these up first.

1. We have to post these rules before we give you the facts.
2. Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
3. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
4. At the end of your blog post, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
5. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

Ok, now here goes.

I bite my nails, don’t know why I do it, I just always have. I have tried stopping a gazillion times and now I am down to biting only my thumb nails, I cheat sometimes and bite the rest especially when I am reading or watching a really good movie.
Movies make me cry, it doesn’t matter if its sad, happy, whatever, I cry. Glitter made me cry and that was a bad movie, Titanic made me cry for 3 months, every time I heard that Celine Dion song for 3 months after I saw the movie I couldn’t help crying, The Notebook made me cry like my mother had just died, I was in ugly cry mode for most of the movie. John Q made me cry in the first five minutes. Some songs have been known to make me cry and ofcourse books.
I read alot. I love to read, like Nathan, I will read labels, fine print everything but unlike Nathan I love novels. The first book I remember reading is Thumbelina, I was around 4 or 5 and my Mom and I walked into this shop and the book was there so she bought it for me, I was done with it before we got home. She asked me why we didn’t just stand in the shop and let me finish it there instead of buying it.
How many are those? I have this strange ability to retain song lyrics, even if I have only heard the song once. I will listen to a song for the first time and sing the second chorus and it will get stuck in my head.
I am unkind to my hair, I don’t go to the saloon as often as I should and I wish I weren’t but I hate saloons.
When I was 7, I walked home from Kitante Primary School. We lived in Bukoto then, and when I got home I was exhausted and terrified because I knew my Dad was supposed to pick me up and I wouldn’t be there. When he came home he gave the only beating he has ever given me.
When I was 7, my Dad forgot to pick me up from school and I slept in a kind man’s bed. We had fish in g.nuts for supper that night and up till this day, I cannot eat fish or g.nuts.
And lucky number 8, I love food. I love to eat out and try out new things. The last new food I ate was Mongolian.
I guess, I am done. Now who to tag, can you tag someone who has already been tagged? Ok, I can’t think of anyone, sorry.

  1. I read impulsively too … I wish, though, I knew which book came first. That way, I’d have someone to blame for starting this shit on me … :o(

  2. You slept in a kind mans’ bed? Don’t you know what M.J does to kids who sleep in his bed? So did the kind man tell you that that was Jesus fish in peanut?

  3. oh God! you poor thing.
    when they forget to pick you up is a very scary thing!!

  4. Allow me to state the obvious, given that Dee is a girl, if the guy had MJ tendencies, she’d be VERY safe.

  5. Tagren…another word is coined!

  6. One of the biggest scares at a school where I worked was when one of the 6-year-olds went home with a friend of his but didn’t let anyone know. His mom showed up to pick him up, but he was no where to be found. The school had to call every family who had children at the school before they found him.

    I also bite by nails. I’ve gotten better, but bad habits are hard to break.

  7. i like the tagren. and dang it’s been long woman!
