I've Been Tagged!

Rosslyn has tagged me! I need to put down seven random facts about myself. You already know I'm married with two kids, so I'll keep the facts solely about me. OK, here are a few I thought of:

1. When I was a kid I used to ride a unicycle to get around the city, since I could take it with me on public transportation. The 24 inch wheels are better for going places; the 20 inch wheels are better for tricks. I learned to ride backwards a little, but needed a wide space to practice in. And no, I never learned to juggle :-)

2. I taught myself to play guitar. In high school I used to play and sing every day, but not for a long time now. I still play piano though. In college I made good money perfoming flute for weddings and graduations.

3. I'm fashion-challenged. The only things that are important for me about clothing are that it's not too tight, not too loose, and it's a nice color. My favorite colors are red or orange, green, brown, and black. Turquoise or teal are also OK.

4. Numbers stick in my brain -- I can dial a telephone number and remember it a week later. Names and faces, on the other hand, are challenging -- I get my DIH (deer in headlights) look when someone says "hi" to me out of context at the grocery store.

5. Everyone is happier if I don't go camping. I've never been. I never will of my own volition. There's a reason God invented mattresses and hot showers.

6. I am sensitive to noise, and carry earplugs in my purse at all times. When I need to wear them, my hair covers my ears so no one knows. I also don't function well outside during the day without sunglasses.

7. And one more...I long to see dear friends in Heaven.

OK, now I have to tag more friends. Hmm, I need to choose people who will appreciate this. In alphabetical order, how about:

Avily -- But Travis got to her before me! Curse you, Red Baron!
Brenda Susan
Cathy
gzusfreek
Krista
Lydia
Lynn
Miralee
Philangelus
Rita

I need to write to all of you, so expect the *official invitation* soon... Beware...

LOL, I love your list! I empathized on several, including DIH at the grocery store and sunglasses outside. I like this game; I'm starting to fill in the outlines for some of my blogging friends.

Great list. It's fun to get to know you better.

Have a great day!!!

Travis said...

I'm disappointed you can't juggle. I'm not certain we can still be friends.

Amy! Travis had tagged me too. . .I didn't really know what to do but, I am not that interesting.
You are! I can picture you in your not to loose, not too tight outfit playing guitar and riding a unicycle with the kids. As you bump into your neighbor and get that DIH look in your eyes you remove the ear plug from your ears and say, "What was that? No, I don't camp. I'm sorry I don't know your name, but I do remember your telephone number." hee hee
Great post!
