Tagged II: The Little Girls in Me & Their Soap

This is the second time I have been tagged! This time by Maricel from  I realized that when I was a little girl on the elementary school playground, in the game of tag, I ran away from the person who was it. In the blogging playground, everyone wants to be it! Needless to say, I was thrilled once again to be tagged because I was excited to offer a different spin on my turn being it.

My seven random facts are presented as kid cartoon characters who represent me and what her favorite Serah’s soap would be.

from Jimmy Neutron
Libby's Favorite Serah's Soap: Pink Cupcake Soap

Libby is equipped with Palms to pagers to cellphones and if you're a regular blog reader, you know I am equipped with a Palm Treo but what you didn't know is that had pagers and a cell phone when I was around Libby's age.  I choose the Pink Cupcake Soap as Libby's favorite because Libby is my all-time favorite cartoon character and my cupcake soaps are my favorite soaps.

from Disney's fairies
Iridessa's Favorite Serah's soap: Princess Soap

Iridessa and I are both passionate about our work.  I choose the Princess Soap as Iridessa's favorite because even though she's a fairy, she's still one of Disney's princesses to me.

Orange Blossom
from Strawberry Shortcake
Orange Blossom's Favorite Serah's Soap: Strawberries & Cream Cupcake Soap

Orange Blossom and I are both friends to the earth & to anyone who needs a helping hand.  I choose the Strawberries & Cream Cupcake Soap as Orange Blossom's favorite because I can see her giving that cupcake soap to Strawberry Shortcake as a gift.

Susie Carmichael
from Rugrats
Susie's Favorite Serah's Soap: Baa Baa Sheep Soap

Susie is a super student and I went to private school on a scholarship from first-grade to eighth grade.  I choose the Baa Baa Sheep Soap as Susie's favorite because I Susie is the protector of the sheep (the Rugrat babies) against the wolf (Angelica).

Tempest Wits
from Teddy P. Brains
Tempest's Favorite Serah's Soap: Hearts of Hearts Soap

Tempest's favorite food is her mother's homemade seafood gumbo and seafood is one of my favorite foods as well.  I choose the Hearts of Hearts soap as Tempest's favorite because she seems like she'd put heart into everything she does.

from Bebe's Kids
LaShawn's Favorite Serah's Soap: Peanut Butter Cups Soap

Although as a kid, my arms stayed crossed and my lips pouted as much as Lashawn's, our similarities don't stop there.  Lashawn is one of Bebe's kids and I am one of Bebe's grandkids.  One of my grandmothers was nicknamed Bebe long before the movie and it is still a running joke in my family.  I choose Peanut Butter Cups Soap as LaShawn's favorite because I can imagine her sitting on the front steps enjoying Peanut Butter Cups candy with her brothers.

Penny Proud
from The Proud Family
Penny's Favorite Serah's Soap: African American Flag Soap

Penny has a cool suga mama who does Tae-bo!  And my grandmothers are my cool suga mamas too!  One of my grandmothers would pick me up from elementary school right after my parents dropped me off and take me on some cool adventures and drop me off one hour before my parents picked me up from school.  Sorry mom and dad.  Thanks Grandma!  I choose the African American Flag soap as Penny's favorite because her last name is proud.

What cartoon character would you be?

Now I have to tag seven more bloggers:

Years ago when my kids watched Rugrats, I'd stop to watch the episodes with Susie Carmichael! I loved her! She was so independent and could outsmart Angelica any day. Took care of those 'babies' all the time. Your responses -- too cute!

Renée aka Mekhismom said...

Cute! I love your take on the meme, I have never seen it done this way before. If I were a character I would be hmmm not sure. I have to think on that one. Can I get back to you? : )
