Tagged! Twice. So that means I gotta do this, right?

I’ve been tagged by Candace Trew Camling and Marg aka Cock yer doodle and they want to know 6/7 random things about me. So here you go!

The rules, you ask?:
1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Mention these rules.
3. Tell six random things about yourself.
4. Tag six other bloggers by linking to them.
5. Go to each person’s blog and leave a comment letting them know they’ve been tagged.

Tag! You’re it!:
Five Little Green Beans

Alicia Padrón
Life without novacaine
Allison Smith

About me...
1. I have had a sketchbook since before I could write. My first was a school composition book that I made into a sketchbook.
2. My husband and I got married in Vegas, back in 2000. No, not by Elvis!
3. I have a distant Uncle named "Clancy Carlile" (my maiden name is Carlile) who wrote the novel "The Honkey Tonk Man", which later was made into a movie starring and directed by Clint Eastwood. It bombed! For some reason whenever I bring this up, people think this is funny. Poor Clancy!
4. I was on a plane the morning of September 11th, 2001. The idea of that still rattles me.
5. I WILL NOT eat maraschino cherries, junior mints or velveta cheese because I heard they are made with really gross things. True or not, I won't touch any of it!!!
6. I got my first job as an illustrator for an ad agency while I was still in high school.
7. If you ask me to draw something on the spot, I can't do it! I just can't!!!

Thanks so much for thinking of me and tagging me. But I very recently was tagged and just posted my 7 things. I don't think people are SO interested in me for reading another tag so close to the other.Hee, hee.. Hope you don't mind.

Hey Cynthia, thanks for playing along. I tell ya, it's not easy finding people who haven't already been tagged and I appreciate how some people may not have the time to indulge the tagger. ;) So thanks.
It was cool to read your personal factos. Love the brush with Clint Eastwood. And marriage in Vegas??.. Hehee, too cool.

Keep on rockin' like you do!
