I am new to this tagging thing, and I am intrigued by it so:
OK, here are the rules:
1) link to you tagger and post rules;
2)share 7 facts about yourself: some random, some weird
3)tag 7 people at the end of your post--list names;
4)let them know you tagged them by leaving them a comment on their blog--and hope they don't kick your ass.

My tagger--Laurie of this courageous woman tagged me and I am honored that she even reads my blog--so thank you Laurie.

1) I am a chef by trade--yes I went to a vocational, technical High School where I studied culinary arts for 4 years--My diploma is in culinary arts. I won awards for decorating-using sugar and french techniques--don't ask...eek! I dreamed of being an executive chef on a cruise ship.

2) I worked on the Grammy Awards when they were NYC before they got pissed off with Mayor Giuliani and moved to LA--Janet Jackson was my assigned celebrity that was a client of the PR firm I worked for. I was in charge of getting her ready for the press after she accepted her award--if she got one. She did and she refused to talk the press--she just stood there with a smile and a blank stare. I was mortified and caught hell because she wouldn't talk to the press--after I spend all that fucking time with her prepping.

3)I am mortally allergic to milk proteins, dairy, casein.--I have been in comas from eating dairy products. EGGS ARE NOT INCLUDED.

4)I love big band music.

5)I had cervical cancer when I was 22 yrs old. I participated in a clinical trial that was designed to preserve my reproductive system. It didn't work. I cannot have children.

6)I like tasteful pornography and erotica.

7)I felt my mother's death. I was in Grad school-commuting to NYC every day from CT. I remember waking up and knowing my mother had died. I got ready to catch my train, I told my husband to go to my mother's townhouse and check on her if she is dead then call my Sister and Brothers. I purposely left my cellphone off the entire day. When I got home My husband was waiting to tell me my mother had died and that he had found her just as I said. I have been clairvoyant all of my life.

Here are my 7 folks I am tagging:
This chick is hot and has a great perspective on life as a single woman--and she is so much fun is a Sister with a great blog on life as a teacher/administrator/mother/woman of color. This is one of my faves. are my new best friends in Australia--they take some of the most beautiful photographs. a Sister who keeps it real. Sister friend Two Feathers over at she has the most beautiful art work that you will ever see--the lost art of mandalas is something to behold. the only man in my bunch, but certainly no lightweight--he is a fellow journeyman on the road to self awareness. And last but not least, if you are in need of a spiritual pick me up this is the site. Good news all the time.

You must be a cat with 9 lives for all the things you've done and lived!

Thanks for thinking of me with the meme, but please don't be offended if I don't partake. I'll have to think about this a little longer.

Lovebabz, THANK YOU for the shout out! I’m going to do the meme sometime this weekend.

A chef by trade who got elected to public office twice and triumphed over cervical cancer? WHERE did you find the time?

Sorry to hear ‘Ms. Jackson, if you’re nasty’ was feeling mute after you did all that work for her. She’s an odd bird.

WOW. You have a true dairy allergy. I’m like that with shellfish. As for dairy, I simply hate it, and I only eat dairy alternatives (e.g. almond milk, soy ice cream, etc.). No cheese, no milk, no ice cream for me. Makes me sick.

I share your affinity for tasteful porn and erotica. >:-)

Your clairvoyancy is a gift. Though my heart goes out to you for having to feel your mother’s death. How do you come to terms with an experience like that?

laurie said...

Wow. I knew your list would be interesting and impressive.

Two Feathers said...

Hi. Thanks for 'tagging' me. It'll probably be Monday before I get mine done. And instead of posting it at Mandala Madness, I'll put it up on my personal "one blog to rule them all" Shirley Twofeathers.

I am so glad that you have been enjoying the mandalas! I found your 7 things very interesting... your life has been quite a journey hasn't it?

Now I'm off to take a look at the other blogs tagged her. Bye for now.

Two Feathers said...

Oops! I meant "tagged here" not "tagged her"... I hate it when I post a typo! (perfectionism is a curse!)

Smiles and hugs!

Lovebabz said...

I never though of myself as a cat with 9 lives, but since you put that way--I guess there is some truth. I am sure there is much more ahead...I am hoping!

First, thank you for thinking of me and for the shout out. I am not a meme virgin - so, forgive me if I do not tag anyother bloggers. But I will figure out a new seven things to tell the world.

And, I'm going to check out the other tagged blogs!

Well, I still haven't done this yet. But I am planning to. I'll let you know when I get it up and posted!

#7 about your mom gave me goosebumps. I'm intuitive as hell and had moments like this, but when I don't, I'm always surprised, but then think that God just didn't want me to know until after the fact.

In December 2007 my mother died in a hospital.
I was at home and suddenly I had the exact feeling that someone would call me to tell me that my mother had died.
40 seconds after the phone rang.
A medical doctor called me from the hospital to tell me that my mother had died.
When I went to the hospital I was so shocked by what I felt that could not even cry.
