Tagged by Counselor In Process

I got tagged by Counselor In Process.
The rules for the meme are:
1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Share six non important things/habits/quirks about yourself.
4. Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs.
5. Let each random person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website.

Six unimportant things, hmmm.
~ I have eaten peanuts or peanut butter every day for as long as I can remember. My Grandfather, Daddy Matt, worked in a peanut warehouse. (yep, I know, really southern, but there's nothing like a Virgina peanut)
~ I have to read a little bit before I fall asleep at night, which means I sometimes don't fall asleep because the book is too compelling.
~ I have multiple piercings in one earlobe, but don't wear extra earrings any more
~ I still haven't outgrown my seventh grade penchant for colored ink. Not very lawyerly, but my pink and turquoise pens amuse my opponents -- and being underestimated is almost never a bad thing.
~ I really like teenagers. I think they're funny and interesting and great company. I also like two-year-olds. Thirteen-month-olds are the only kids I don't enjoy. The poor little munchkins can't walk or talk, but they know enough to really want to, so they spend their time frustrated and falling down.
~ I have three last names. No, not like a soap opera diva. In real life, my first name, middle name and last name are all surnames -- my mother's maiden name, my grandmother's maiden name, and mine. It's another southern thing. The girls I grew up with had names like Randall, Ridgely, Ramsay and Cooper. And the kids named Madison, Ashley, and Courtney were christened with their mothers' and grandmothers' surnames. It's a tradition I'm glad has spread beyond the south.

I tag Garden Girl and NJGrits because they never post anymore. I also tag Songbird and anyone else who wants to play. P.S. None of you are random.

I love peanut butter, too. My daughter introduced me to peanut butter (natural, always) on white cheddar rice cakes. Ooooh, I like that. Fun to read about you.

I like peanut butter a lot, too, but it has to be natural peanut butter.

And I love pens with colored ink.
