8 Random Things About Me

by Darla Mack

I hate being tagged!!!  Lol but apparently Michell, Olly and Matt don't seem to care.  I was actually tagged by 2 other people but I can't remember who they are.  (my apologies).

Ok so I'm supposed to post the rules first, followed by 8 unimportant and boring things about myself, hehe.


  • We have to post these rules before we give you the facts.
  • Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
  • People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
  • At the end of your blog post, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
  • Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

  1. I'm easily frustrated and usually loose at the tongue.  Meaning that in an unprofessional state I will tell someone off without thinking.  This is something that I'm working on and its still a work in progress, but I've gotten better!!  I've omitted alot of the curse words!
  2. I usually go through stages of being offended.  First, of course, I'll be upset.  Then I'll be angry and think of ways to retaliate.  And lastly I'll find the humor in the matter and shrug it off... but isn't that how most Diva's react?
  3. I LOVE CHOCOLATE!!!  I CAN BE BRIBED WITH CHOCOLATE!!  CHOCOLATE IS MY BEST FRIEND!!  Lol gotta keep my lovely complexion ya know!
  4. I take my blog and the work that I've put into it very seriously.  Its not just something to do to pass the time. 
  5. I am an sms junkie!!  I hardly ever use my phone for calls.  Instead I use OUTRAGEOUS amounts of data and take advantage of unlimited messaging.  I've randonly texted people on my contact list just to see if they would respond and how many days it took them to respond.  Lol this is how I can determine if they are "SMS Worthy".
  6. I'm concious about my image.  Lol truth be told I'm not as thin and sexy as my Klonie up there on my banner.  When you are behind your computer, no one sees you.  They just see what you write.  Meeting people in person forces me to come from behind my laptop. which still scares me a bit.  No matter what, we still live in a society where appearance and age still play a factor.  I rememeber last year when I was offered a chance to do a segment on Women in Mobile for some company (run by women) that I can't remember the name of.  When I gave them my age I was completely omitted.  Lol, this is where Thing #1 came in!
  7. Lol, I'm pushin 40 and I think I'm lookin damn great doin it!!  Anyway, from what I've been told 40 is the new 20.
  8. I'm trying to quit smoking.  DON'T BUG ME ABOUT IT OR ELSE THING #1 WILL BE FORCED UPON YOU!!
  9. I have a habit of playing a song into the ground.  I've repeated listened to a song over and over again during the day, lol.

Whew, now that I got that off my chest, please don't chose to judge me based on those 8 things!  Hehe.

Usually I would chose people that I already know or associate with, but this time I think I will randomly pick:

Debi Jones
Robert Scoble
Paul Whitaker
Frank Koehntopp
Charlie - because I haven't spoken to him in ages!

I usually don't appreciate being tagged, but it's from Darla, so it's hard to ignore. I will share things relevant in this context (see random item 7). Also, this is a good time, as you will see below. In any [Read More]


Michell Bak

Good stuff, Darla :)

This stuff is actually pretty cool. It's like you get to know people better :) So thumbs up from here.

Oh, you posted 9 things about yourself - is that the diva wanting to get the last word? ;) lol

Tarek El Ghazali

I wanted to tag you, but I dunno why I thought you already posted the 8 random things before, so I didn't. Too bad :(

Mike Bowen

Hi Darla,

Good list. Your point number 4 is what I want to comment on. Your site is incredible, and I read it a couple times a day if I get a chance, mostly on my Nokia N95. So interesting, so much information, so detailed... just brilliant.

Point 3, 5, 9 : I hear ya! Well 40 is actually the new 20, don't let anyone convince you of the opposite, and good luck with quitting smoking. I for one have NEVER smoked a cigarette, and if you were anywhere near me, you wouldn't be able to smoke one, cuz usually I come quickly and take it out of any smoker I know. They've all learned their lesson now, anyway it's for their own good ;)
