Tagged for 5 random things

I was tagged by Jan for five random things, so here goes!

1. I'm really short. Barely 5 foot 2, to be exact. My younger brother (16) is almost 6 foot 5. Who looks like the baby sister? Yeah, me. Everywhere we go. Argh.

2. I love pens. Seriously. I have zillions of them, some I use and some I save. My favorite colors to write with are dark green, dark purple and pink.

3. I'm addicted to tea. Green, white, herbal and red are my favs. Not a huge drinker of black tea, but I love iced black tea in the summer. I also keep a log off all of the teas I've tried and rate them based on whether I liked the taste, brand, etc.

4. I want a squirrel. Yep, in my house. Think Veruca Salt in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory when she says, "Daddy, buy me a squirrel." :)

5. I don't like monkeys. At all. Never have for some reason. Sorry Diana and Jen!

If you want to play, consider yourself tagged!

Really!? From your author pictures, I would not have thought you were that short. :)

Me too, me too! I want a pet squirrel! Everyone always thinks I'm crazy when I say that. Glad *someone* else understands. ;)

All right, so I look taller in pics! Yay! :)

I'm soo glad to find someone else who wants a squirrel! :) They're just so adorable...

"I want a squirrel. Yep, in my house."

Oh wow! Someone in my old building adopted a baby squirrel. It was a special breed. It looked like a tiny chihuahua or a newborn kitten. The building manager said that she had paid a mint for it and that she was always taking it to the vet.

Neat, anon. I bet it's adorable! I wanted one after someone I knew got a wildlife license so she could rehabilitate squirrels in her home.

There's actually an organization in my city that allows people to foster squirrels WITHOUT a license. :)

We have a pet squirrel who has a nest on our deck. Our dog barks at him (them) ALL THE TIME!!!

Jessica Burkhart said...

Oooh, PJ, barking isn't fun! But lucky you for having a nest! :)

What kind of person doesn't like monkeys?!?!?! (teasing)

You can have my squirrel(s). I'm not sure if there's a guerrilla faction of them or just one ninja squirrel, but it stalks my backyard and eats all my birdfood.

Just tell me the address to ship to...

Jessica Burkhart said...

Oooh, Erica. A ninja squirrel. I'm coming to your house! :)

It's all about finesse, not height. Just ask my grandmother and my sister-in-law! And I'm so with you on the pens. All office supplies, actually. I could spend hours in an office supply store just drooling over the pens, paper, organizers, etc. And I don't even use an organizer! And as for teas, lately I've been drinking green/herbal blends. Not a huge fan of green tea, but I know it's good for me, and when blended with herbs it's divine.

Good to meet someone shorter than me... I'm 5'2 and a bit. You wait until you have a son who's 6'2" and still growing (size 14 feet).... that is truly the weirdest thing ever.
