I’ve Been Tagged—A Sunday Favorite

writeroval-1-1 Each Sunday Chari at Happy to Design gives us a chance to repost an earlier blog in Sunday Favorites.  When I’ve been able to participate, I’ve mainly been reposting entries from my early blogging days, before I “met” most of you.  This post originally appeared on October 8, 2008.  Realizing that my profile is somewhat limited in information (I haven’t listed any favorite books or movies or stuff), I decided this post would tell you a little more about me.  When you’re finished reading, be sure to drop by Happy to Design to see what others are offering.

JB tagged me to participate in a game of Blog Tag. My task is to write seven random, weird or funny things about myself. So here goes.

1. I drive a red Ford F-150, extended cab. This is my fourth red pickup truck. The second one was supposed to be Dakota Beige. I had special ordered it, but when it came in another salesman sold it and they had to scramble to find another one for me. It turned out to be another red one, so I've just stuck with red ever since.

2. The radio in my red Ford F-150 is usually tuned to a sports talk radio station. We have a good local station here in Birmingham, even though the talk usually centers around Auburn and Alabama.

3. I post on a Razorback message board using the handle Petunia Pig. I started with the old KARK message board about 12 or 13 years ago. Everyone on that board eventually migrated to the PigPen message board, and when PigPen folded I started posting on the Hawg's Illustrated board.

4. My grandmother name is KBeau. At least that's what we are teaching Walker to say. Ben's friends were the first to call me KBeau. The name comes from my first email address, kbeau@aol.com. We joined AOL when it was a DOS program and the only people you could email were other AOL members. Unfortunately, when I went to another service provider, KBeau was not available. Since I'm KBeau, Larry is naturally LBeau.

5. When I was a student at the University of Arkansas, I was known in the Kappa house as the Tube Queen. I would study every night in front of the television, and at noon I didn't miss many episodes of As the World Turns. Now that I build and remodel homes, I probably haven't watched a soap opera in 15 years.
 
6. My hair is its natural color, which is blonde, liberally sprinkled with gray. A lot of people think I get it highlighted, but whenever I've spent the $60 or so to highlight my hair it looks just the same.
 
7. LBeau says that I have the perfect job. I get to talk a lot on the phone (Nextel radio), boss a lot of men and spend a lot of money.

Kathy, A group of girls in my dorm watched "Days" every day (we had to scheduled classes around it!) When Lee was killed in a car wreck, we all sat crying in front of the t.v. Another dorm resident walked in and asked what was wrong, and spread the word that the girls in that suite had lost a good friend in a car wreck! She had no idea we were talking about a soap opera! laurie

I always find it interesting to read and to write these lists. It makes us think of things about ourselves that normally are put away in our heads.

Repeats for always good. Don't remember reading these interesting things about you, but then my mind doesn't hang on to stuff very long.

Sunday Blessings,

You sound like a super interesting person with a lot of varied interests. I really enjoy people like that. I worked in the building industry for years as a buyer for a large chain. Love to talk building. Hugs, Marty

I love getting to know others better. Let's us know what we have in common. I too loved to watch "As the World Turns". It started with my Grandpa & then my mom. But I've gotten out of the habit of watching now. I will still see what's happening by checking CBS.com for recaps. Thanks for letting us get to know you a little better. By the way, I love red trucks too. Just have never owned one though.
