I've gotten pretty far behind on some tags here lately so I'm using today to catch up. I know my blog has been a little sad recently and I figured it might be a good time for a distraction. Today I was tagged by Teresa for 7 random things. I've decided that the world just can't take more random things about me since I just did a similar post a few months ago. Read my 6 random things here, and since I'm short one to make 7, I'll tell you that I love the smell of scotch tape - especially at (but not limited to) Christmastime!

Instead I've decided to respond to a separate tag from Teresa about husbands. Apparently Chuck and I make some people's (katdish) "molars ache." So here's my response to the husband tag:

5 Things Chuck loves:
1. Jesus
2. His wife & family
3. Building things (with wood or Legos)
4. Eating
5. Sleeping

5 Things on Chuck's to-do list:
1. Finish and paint woodworking projects
2. Clean out garage (please!)
3. Make phone calls
4. Write some fancy code at work
5. Relax (probably not on the list, but it should be!)

5 Foods Chuck enjoys:
1. Steak
2. Pork chops
3. Mashed potatoes
4. Grilled fish
5. Breakfast food

5 Things you may not know about Chuck:
1. He's an excellent game player. He beats me at every game we ever play. (Maybe this means I'm a terrible game player!)
2. He's the greatest uncle in the world (just ask our nephews).
3. He's very witty, but very shy.
4. He has a degree in electrical engineering.
5. He works as a software engineer at NASA.

5 Quirky things about *Chuck:
1. He bites his fingernails.
2. He falls asleep VERY quickly.
3. He ate his first grilled cheese sandwich just a few years ago (in his 30s! He is not a picky eater but how is it possible he'd never had a grilled cheese sandwich before?)!
4. His known aliases are "Chuck" and "Hucklebuck."
5. He laughs every time he hears the last name McCracken. (If this is your last name, I apologize!)

*Names have been changed to protect the innocent.

Also, thanks to Teresa and Nity for these lovely blog awards! You guys are great, and I LOVE your blogs too.

Alicia said...

I agree with what Jenn said! I got a laugh about Chuck being an excellent game player. My husband beats me at everything too.

Stacey, I left a comment on your December 10 post today. Just thought I would let you know.

On another note, I have been a fan of SCL for a long time. It is good to know who Hucklebuck is! :-)

Amy said...

GASP! YOUR husband is Hucklebuck? As in, the SCL frequent-commenter Hucklebuck? I don't know why I never put that together until now, but I had NO IDEA. I feel like I am in the presence of blog royalty.

Stacey said...

Amy - LOL! Pat yourself on the back my friend. You just made Hucklebuck's day! :)

Connie said...

Seriously, how lucky am I to have blog royalty as family?! This was a fun post. I learned nothing I didn't already know about good ol Chuck, but it's nice that he gets praised. He certainly deserves it. He really could win the award for World's BEST Uncle and Brother-in-law!!!

Here's a sweet little story: The boys and I were on our way to school this morning and we were talking about how much God loves us and how we should trust Him to know what is best for us and I said, "Did you know that God loves you more than Mommy does and more than Granny does and more than Aunt Stace and Uncle do?" Both boys exclaimed, "MORE THAN AUNT STACE AND UNCLE?!!!" They couldn't believe THAT was possible! If that doesn't speak volumes, I don't know what does!
