Triple Tag You're It.

So I have been tagged 3 times by Cara, Colleen, & Pearlsa. (As far as I know)
I hope that doesn't mean I have to do 21 facts or tag 21 people, seeing as everyone I frequently read has been tagged!

The Rules:
1. Link to the person’s blog who tagged you.
2. Post these rules on your blog.
3. List seven random and/or weird facts about yourself.
4. Tag seven random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.
5. Let each person know that they have been tagged by posting a comment on their blog.

1) Justin Timberlake is the love of my life. Yeah I know you're thinking, "well duh isn't he every 16 year old's dream guy?" No! I was in love with him before he brought SexyBack. I was in love with him when he was wearing white tank tops and had bleach blonde curly hair. I could go on and on...

2) A lot of people think that my sister and I are twins or the same person. Funny thing is, we are 7 years apart in age, I'm taller, and we don't really look that similar (well at least that's what we think).

3) Purple is my favorite color and sometimes I tend to go over board with it. My room has purple walls, a purple rug, purple bedding, and a purple chair. I have also almost always had a purple backpack for school.

4) I have an obsession with Boston accents. Let's just say the movie The Departed was like heaven for me, minus all the cursing and people being murdered.

5) My dream car is a Mini Cooper. It could be the fact that I love the movie The Italian Job, which features one of my favorite boys from Boston, Marky Mark!

6) I love going to the dentist. I think it's fun and entertaining.

7) I have dyed my hair at least 5 times in the last year. I have gone to red, to lighter brown which turned out orange from the red, to redish brown, to dark brown, to black. My natural color is actually dark brown.

Here are my tags. I picked these by looking for people who didn't already have a comment that tagged them. So I hope I haven't double tagged anyone.
Allison (Tales of a Twentysomething)
Elise (My sister, I couldn't think of anyone else.)

A Bonus 8th fact) My mom is from Central Pennsylvania, so a lot of the words I say have a skewed Central PA way about them. I also have the ability to adapt to talking like I am from Central PA if I am around my mom's family for too long. Some of my weird words are: mam and melk, or for normal people mom and milk.

Thanks for the tag Jillian!

Colleen said...

You LIKE going to the dentist and think it's entertaining??!! I am so jealous. I endure going to the dentist and as a child had to be sedated for every procedure. Not fun.

Allison said...

Jillian- Yes, I pretty much stole your #2...I found finding 7 things was pretty hard.

Are you and your sister close, even with the age difference?

Pearlsa said...

I get the sister twin thing a lot too. The freaky one was when a 4yr old kid I baby-sat asked his mom if she know there were two Pearlsa.

Allison said...


My sister and I are super close, probably because it only being the 4 of us and moving when I was younger. Now that I'm back in the DC area (where my family lives) I love hanging out with Beck. We have "girls weekends" now- our last one was a trek to Georgetown for some vintage shopping. She's pretty awesome and way cooler than I ever was at 16.

Caro said...

Glad to hear you like going to the dentist! We get very used to being told how much we're hated - you're definitely in a minority, even among people who've never needed much, if any, dental work.

The only car I've ever called mine (I lost my license almost 7 years ago on medical grounds) was a Red Mini Cooper. It was a original one, like those in the original version of the Italian Job. It was a pain to drive as it had a manual choke, finding third gear was a hit and miss affair, you had to keep the window open in winter as the only way to keep the windscreen (windshield) clear of condensation and it had a very hard time going over 30mph with passengers in the back! But I loved that car!

hahaha.. melk! That's funny, I don't have any relatives from central PA but I've heard some of the strange pronunciations. ooh and my dream car is a mini cooper too!!

Sandra Miller said...


When I was younger, I HATED going to the dentist-- but since I stopped being afraid of the experience, I actually kind of look forward to those visits.

And that's funny about the Boston accents thing-- my husband is crazy about them, too.

Which is good, because whenever I talk with anyone in my family, mine comes back with a vengeance (Btw, a chunk of The Departed was actually filmed in my home town :-)

Hrm. Justin Timberlake AND Marky Mark? ...

Hey Jillian!

No discouragement intended. Just joking around with you.

I'm just an old guy (30+) who's wife likes those two as well...
