8 Random Things (I Won't Tell My Mother!)

JenClair from A Garden Carried in the Pocket tagged me for this meme.

The rules -
1: Each player starts with 8 random facts/habits about themselves.
2: Write a post with the 8 random things, and post these rules.
3: Tag 8 people and include their names.
4: Leave a comment and tell them they're tagged, and to read your blog.

1) I chew my fingernails when I read.
2) I drive too fast when alone. The guard calls me, "Little Lady with Big Feet."
3) My nickname in Alpha Eta Rho, our flying fraternaty, was Mag Drop.
4) My grandmother's name, since forever, is Sweetheart.
5) I taught myself to typw, I mean tpye, damnit TYPT, AUGH
6) I used to be the editor of a small British Car Club newsletter, Wyres & Tyres.
7) My middle name is Carol, but Sweetheart spells it Carole.
8) When I worked at Smyrna Air Center, I would layout between the hangers on breaks. I also spent one summer as the flag-in-airplanes, lure with your looks, get them to the gas-pumps, girl. (About 10 times, the gag got old and the ramp got hot!)

If you read this, nay-nay, you're IT!

I've never even heard the term "peg" in connection with the speedometer! Love that your grandmother really is a Sweetheart.

Thanks for playing, Maggie!

I scaled it down a little since y'all read the list. I didn't want people worried about me. I've always been a dare devil, though. (You know bungee-jumpin', thrill seeker.)

JenClair, we call it clocked or pegged. I was trying to think where the term came from, flying or driving. It comes from causing the peg to move all the way around to a stop. Like our Z has a button to push to reset the odometer and that is the stop. You peg a g-meter, too.
