Eight things you really don't want to know about me. And I've been tagged, drat!

Here's the scoop. My buddy Susan Meissner (who is cute beyond description and a fabulous author) tagged me to play an insane bloggers game. I stunk and tag so don't blame me if this takes you on a wild ride. Since I have to make you all suffer, too, just remember that I only torture people I like. So make sure to thank Susan later. But it's really Mary DeMuth's fault because she tagged Susan first. Anyhoo... If you read to the end you'll see who I've tagged. Here are 8 random things I have to share with the world...

First, these are the rules:
1. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
3. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
4. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged, and to read your blog.


1. My third toes on each foot have a rare genetic flaw that makes my feet tip in at the arch. So all of those flip flops that I wore out funny, and that my mom chewed me out about, check this out... I COULDN'T HELP IT! (I put that in capital letters because mom has been with Jesus nine years now and it's a long way to heaven.)

2. I won my school spelling bee in the fifth grade and got a big trophy (that I currently have my necklaces hanging on...I know, really noble usage) and I won the NY State energy conservation poster contest the same year and got like $25 whole bucks. Big money in those days.

3. My mother was a Franciscan nun. I know, amazing. But it's true. And it's still about me 'cause I'm the offspring, ya know. But mom met dad a year after she left the convent, so there was no scandal involved folks.

4. Okay, this one really shows my naiveté. (For mature audiences only...) When I was in the 7th grade I thought that oral sex was talking about it. (Cheesy, I know. But I was innocent then and I was trying to defend a girl who people were saying got pregnant from oral sex. I said, "You guys are so stupid. You can't get pregnant from talking about it.") Um, duh.

5. I used to take the trash that my family threw away and resell it to the neighbors with my best friend. We used to make some pretty good money doing that. At least enough to buy some candy. I think they just thought we were cute or something.

6. The sight of blood makes me shiver. I could never work on an ambulance or in a hospital. I'm too squeamish.

7. I sold enough girl scout cookies one year that I only had to pay $2 to go to a week of camp.

8. I sing in the shower and I sing in my car while I'm driving down the road. People think I'm nuts. Oh, and I sing on the worship team, too. Not that exciting, I know.

Here are the folks I've tagged... Robin Miller, Debra Ullrick, Angela Breidenbach, Kacy Gramckow, Tricia Goyer, Joan Shoup (J. M. Hochstetler), Trish
Perry, and Mary Connealy.

Okay, mama, here are my eight:

1. I have a lump down the middle of my bed, the result of my sleeping on one side and my husband sleeping on the other. My latest project has been to try to force myself to sleep on the lump all night long, in an effort to squish it down and bring peace and harmony to my mattress.

2. I'm unusually cranky lately. This may have something to do with my sleeping on a lump all night long for the past month.

3. For the past couple of weeks, I've been typing an extra apostrophe at the end of my contractions, like don't' and can't'. This has not been a deliberate choice, and it has me quite put out.

4. I had a dream recently in which our pet cat kept trying to bite my hands. I donned gloves to thwart the cat's efforts, and, while he attempted to sink his teeth into them, he actually said, in frustration, "What. The. Heck!"

5. When I was five I stole a stack of dimes from a window ledge in my friend's basement. I used the dimes to buy paper dolls when my friend and I went to the store. I loved those paper dolls and played with them shamelessly.

6. I once complained profusely to a guy about a horrible, pushy woman who was after my boyfriend, right before the guy told me she was his sister.

7. I actually cried during a scene in Spiderman 3. SPIDERMAN 3!!!

8. I can't swim. Like a rock, I'm tellin' you.

Tagging Carrie Turansky, Betsy St. Amant, Cara Putnam, Cathy West, Jenness Walker, Lisa Jordan, Camy Tang, and Jill Eileen Smith.
