Weight Loss Mama tagged me for The Versatile Blogger Award!

What does this mean? It means I get to name 7 random things about me and then tag 15 of you to do the same. Here goes:

1. I only like under-ripe bananas; they have to be green.

2. I have had a terrible habit of chewing my nails ever since I was a kid. I finally willed myself to stop a couple months ago and they are growing out beautifully! I think I should treat myself to a manicure soon.

3. I have worked at my current job as an Executive Assistant for more than eight years.

4. I have a very strong distaste for seafood. I want to like it, but I just can’t. Blech.

5. Hubs and I bought our current townhouse in 2008. We would love to upgrade in the next few years, and we hope to move into a “forever very long term home”.

6. After all the hype, I recently acquired a taste for green monsters. For weeks I have been enjoying almost-daily fruit & (greek) yogurt smoothies with a big ol’ handful of the green stuff. Yum!

7. Three of my favorite TV shows are ending this year (24, Lost, Flash Forward). What am I going to do with myself? (Run more…)

Tag! You’re it:


Have a great weekend!

  1. High five back to you!! I hate fish too, although I have no desire to try to like them. I don't like bananas but maybe I would enjoy under ripe ones? Hmmm…Thanks for the tag! πŸ™‚

  2. I can't stomach a yellow banana either…ick! But I do save them if they're in the yellow stage til they're in the brown stage and make banana bread. Yum! Thanks for the award, will work on my 7 this weekend! Have a great weekend!!

  3. all my shoes finale-ed last night. nothing to watch on thursday nights anymore. i guess running more is the answer! hahhahai am glad that you finally got around to the green monsters. they are delicious!ya u deserve a nice manicure and pedicure after all the hard work on your feet and the no-chewing of the nails. Go for it!!!!Thanks for the tag!!!

  4. I LOVE that you LOVE green monsters. I knew you would love them! πŸ™‚ Oh yeah, and on the green banana thing, I should have sent you my bundle of green bananas! Sheessh! And yay for spreading all the good news. I think is super fun and gives me tons of new blogs to check out! Enjoy your weekend Marlene!!

  5. Eww, green bananas!(Did you know banana is a hard word to type when you've had a coupel of beers? Too bad you live across theboarder and I can't send you beer or wine. :0(Thanks for the link love.

  6. ah, sorry I'm late but THANK YOU for the high five!! That's a cute concept πŸ™‚ I'm a fan! I'm also going to send you all the green bananas – I think you're one of a small group that likes them πŸ˜‰ heh (kidding..sort of…) On that green note, I have to admit I haven't enjoyed the GREEN monsters yet. Maybe I'll have to give them another try…
