Meme time!

So, here are the rules.
1. Link to your tagger (Miss Kelli) and post rules
2. Share 7 facts about yourself, some random and some weird
3. Tag 7 people at the end of post and list their names
4. Let them know they were tagged by a comment on their blog

Seven facts about me… hmm…

1. I have two degrees… An AA in Human Services and a BA in Community Services. I use them to deal with high maintenance yarn shoppers while working at my LYS. 🙂 *they’re not all high maintenance, but let me tell ya… a human/community service background comes in handy when dealing with the public in any form whether they’re customers or clients*

2. I’m an extreme Backstreet Boys whore fan. I’ve been a fan since 1998 and don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. In the 9 years I’ve been a fan, I have been to 15 concerts plus a singing of the National Anthem at a Piston’s game and a Miss Teen USA pageant in Florida (where one of the guys was a judge and another was a co-host) to see them. On April 5th, 2005 I met them and it was literally the Best Day Ever.
People who use my love of Backstreet to pick on me are mean and stupid.

3. I’m biracial. My mom is white, my dad black. I LOVE being biracial, I think of it as my own little personal fight against racism. 🙂

4. I have two furkids. Kira is my oldest cat, she’s six years old and a total diva. She pretty much dislikes everyone except for me. 🙂

My baaaaaybeee

Oscar is my youngest cat and he’s four. I’ve only had him for a year though as he was a rescue kitty. He’s a big dufus and an extreme klutz. He also has extra toes on both of his front paws so he looks like he has mittens with thumbs.

5. For seven years I ran support groups for children who were grieving the death of someone at an organization called Ele’s Place. The kids in my group were aged 3 to 6 years old and I learned more from them than I can tell you. They’re amazing.

6. I think the Lifetime channel and any of it’s spawn are the devil. LOL

7. The only thing I have ever known 100% that I wanted to do with my life is to be a mom. I still don’t have my own kids yet, but I’ve been a babysitter, daycare employee, assistant preschool teacher, nanny, aunt, big sister, god mother, mentor and co-parent to so many kids that I’ve got more parenting under my belt than a lot of mothers. I’m also not above having children on my own if I don’t find the right person to have kids with (although I would much rather do it with someone, of course).

Okay I know I’m only supposed to do seven but whatever, consider this a bonus. 🙂

8. I have five tattoos and have plans to get my sixth hopefully before the end of this year.

As for who I tag… Hmm… Kristi, Dirty Sue, Toya, Largmarj, Marcia, Karen, and Amby.
