A tag? Really?

I didn't really think anybody read my blog. But I have been tagged by Bianca (thanks for thinking of me!) and will follow the rules:

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
2. Share 5 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 5 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

In high school, I was really into crazy manicures. I had all sorts of brushes and rhinestones. I even used to do my friends' nails before dances l for money. The best, though, was when I painted a different Looney Tunes character on each nail with the WB logo on my thumbs. They were so accurate that everyone thought they were decals.

When I was 7, I took a year of dance. But one day I couldn't master a particular jump, and I hated feeling like a failure, so I quit.

I am so athletically challenged that I can't do a pull up, a push up, or even a cartwheel.

A few months ago I entered a contest held by my favorite band, Belle & Sebastian. They were looking for singers for a film, so I submitted an entry. If you're curious, here's one of my submission songs. I didn't win, of course.

And though this isn't very interesting for you to read, my last fact is that I get to leave work early today! Woot woot!!!

Let's see, now who do I tag? How about these folks:
Mary #1, Mary #2, Maria, Jenn, and Tomoko.

thanks for the giggle - i needed that today!
oh - i also painted other peoples nails (for free! rethinking my logic). Snowmen,Stars,Palm Trees...crap like that.

Shame on them for not picking you! I literally got goose bumps listening to you. I don't care how athletically challenged you are, you sounded gorgeous.

Ok. I'll go think about more random, more weird things about me.

i thought i was the only one who couldn't master a push-up or pull up!! i think i might be able to still swing a cart wheel though. :)

What a great song Mel!!! I've never heard that before -- did you write it too? You have a really nice tone to your voice -- now race on out and make an album!

Melissa said...

Thanks all!! Oh gosh, I wish I wrote it! I wouldn't know how to begin to write a song. It's a Belle & Sebastian number, written for the film they are working on. They gave us the music to record to. Man, I really wanted to win that contest!

Nobody can do a push-up. Scientifically, it's not even possible. I don't know why people try.

Your voice is lovely! Wow! Is there you can't creatively accomplish! I am impressed! I loved your voice!

:) I shall blog! Thanks for bringing me back to my blog every now and then.

Love u Melly Mel!
