I have been Tagged

I have been tagged by


I have to tag 7 of you

....I doubt any of you are old enough to remember Romper Room.
I see in my magic mirror:

I chose the list from last nights chat on BlockHeadRadio. Tag.....You're it!

Here is how it works, for those of you unfamiliar with the game:
1. Link to your tagger and list these rules on your blog.

2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.

3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blog.

4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

My Seven:
1. Still have my Prom and Wedding dresses in the back of my closet. I can't fit into the prom dress (It is barely a size 5).
2. I have a dry sense of humor (can be mistaken---so I have to watch how it could be taken the wrong way).
3. I have brown eyes
4. I took shorthand and learned to type on a manual (antique type) typewriter.
5. I am not very competitive, I will not step on someone to get ahead.
6. I sew while watching tv, chatting, waiting for stuff to load on the computer and take it with me in the car during wasted time. (Sick lady, aren't I)
7. Sci-Fi Geek (One look at my movie shelf---it is no secret).

I hope those of you that I have chosen have fun creating your list.

Freebies for Voters

Get Your Free Coffee at Starbucks Tomorrow (NOV. 04)

Tell the people at Starbucks "I Voted" ...... and they will give you a free cup of coffee!

Starbucks and

Ben and Jerry's

Come to participating scoop shops on November 4th
from 5-8pm,
you'll get a free scoop of ice cream.

Due to possible conflict with election laws in various states, most are not requiring proof of voting. The free offers:

•Coffee. Starbucks expects to hand out "hundreds of thousands" of free 12-ounce drip coffees (valued at about $1.75 each), says spokeswoman Jenny McCabe. "If everyone who votes comes in for a free cup of coffee, we'll have some lines," she says.

•Doughnuts. Some 85 of Krispy Kreme's 231 locations in the U.S. will hand out star-shaped, red-white-and-blue sprinkled doughnuts "while supplies last," says spokesperson Dana Hughens. The chain will give out about 200,000 doughnuts valued at 99 cents each. "People are definitely talking about the brand as a result of this," she says.

•Ice cream. Between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. in each time zone, Ben & Jerry's ice cream shops will hand out single-scoop ice cream cones (a $3.40 value). "What better way to encourage people to be politically active than to give away free ice cream?" asks spokeswoman Liz Brenna.

•Sandwiches. In a local market promotion, several hundred of the nation's 1,400 Chick-fil-A stores will hand out $2.70 chicken sandwiches to adults who show proof that they voted, says spokesman Jerry Johnston.
