My turn... Tag I'm It!

I've been tagged for the "8 Random Facts About Me" meme by the Exhausted Intern

First, the Rules:
Post these rules before you give your facts
List 8 random facts about yourself
At the end of your post, choose (tag) 8 people and list their names, linking to them
Leave a comment on their blog, letting them know they’ve been tagged.

1. I am ambidextrous. I can print using both my left and right hand but I can only write in cursive with my right hand

2. I am a closet reality TV fan of goofy shows like Scott Baio is 45 and Single - God did I really admit that I watch that????

3. I was 17 when I joined a sorority my freshamn year of college. This did not deter me from hitting the local bars of course using an ID that was not mine.

4. I have practically all of my pictures from the last 4 years on CD or external hard drive and maybe only 100 of out thousands from those years actually printed.

5. I am a huge tea drinker! I have a tea cabinet. I love any kind of green tea, white tea, chai, etc, etc, etc. I even have my hubby hooked on it and he has his own stash of teas at work that I send him with!

6. I have a taped interview of my grandparents a few years before they died done for a Library of Congress project of growing up in Paterson area of NJ during the depression, war, etc. I love listening to their voices and their stories of childhood, how they first met, and the early stories of my father, aunts and uncle as kids. I miss them so much and I treasure these tapes.

7. I am a pack rat from hell! I keep EVERYTHING. I have such a hard time throwing anything away. I have movie ticket stubs, drawings from every child over flowing every box I can throw them in, programs, fliers, anything related to a vacation we have taken, etc.

8. After Jacob was born I wanted my tubes to be tied but my OB/GYN at the time told me I was too young and refused to do it (I was 24). I had only wanted two children, but fortunately God had other plans for our family with Aelx and Matthew yet to come. It is difficult to have 4 kids but of course I would not have it any other way.

Now who to tag??? I will cheat a little and tag a few people who may do it if they have an ounce of time - Melanie, Jesse, Amy, Amy the Happy Momma, and anyone else who wants to do this! If you do it please leave me a comment so I can come read yours! :)

I'll play along but not until after we get back from vacation!

I loved reading your answers- this was a fun meme.
