Stephanie from She Who Must Be... at http://shewhomust.blogspot.com/ tagged me for 7 Random Facts Meme

Here are the rules, and they must be posted to your blog.
Link to the person’s blog who tagged you (see above).
List seven random and/or weird facts about yourself.
Tag seven random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs. (Let each person know that they have been tagged by posting a comment on their blog and also so they can look at your blog and not tag the same people all over again!) Let the fun begin.

So here goes:
1. I was born in Polyclinic Hospital New York City and lived the first two years in Asbury Park NJ before moving back to NY where I lived until I married a Canadian way back in 1969. He left me Christmas Day 1976.
2. I am still a US citizen but I have lived longer in Canada than the US now
3. Apparently I still speak New Yorkese
4. Penny isn't my real or legal name but a name I chose when I was about eight years old not liking my actual real name
5. I wear all my undergarments (panties, slips, socks etc) inside out as the seaming drives me nutso.
6. I went to two Beatle concerts. The one at Shea Stadium and the one at Forest Hills Tennis Courts. I have one of the tickets and the cost looking at it now is unbelievably cheap
7.I am a cancer survivor

For this quiz I am tagging

I remember that Beatles concert. I lived in Flushing Queens at the time but I was too young to go. My parents never would have allowed their 9/10 year old go to a Beatles concert.

I wear my underwear inside out too. :) I find I have less contact with the elastics that way.

Thankss for going along with the meme, AND based on my own poll results, I REALLY REALLY REALLY hope you vote!

Penny said...

I sent in my absentee ballot for Florida Jan 29 primary vote already and will be voting when it is time to vote in November 2008. It took an extemely long time to get it figured out but then there was some information about the democrats and absentee voting which I went to and VOILA I can now vote.
I just dont't think Edwards will be on the ballot and if he was I dont't think he would win against the Rebublicians.

kasiaiscarly said...

he he. . . do you wear your knitted socks inside out too?? :)

i also think it's unfair to tell us Penny is a moniker but not tell us your real name!

Penny said...

No I don't wear my knitted socks inside out only the store purchased ones as I when I knit mine there is no seam to drive me crazy.

Penny said...

HA HA HA If you don't know my real name I won't tell you. My income tax, my Blue Cross and whatever I can put as Penny I do. Manitoba Medical refuses to add Penny even as a second name but all my services; hospitaliztions, medications and doctor visits etc. are all covered and are under Penny so go figure. BUT, alas, my driver's licence and passport are under my real name.
