Twenty Facts

Cheryl tagged me to post 20 Facts about myself, so here goes!

  16. One of my most vivid memories is finally seeing the lights of Edmonton, AB in the distance after days of driving from New Orleans.
  17. I have been trying to figure out what a movie from my childhood is for years. I don’t remember the title. It’s live action and animation, set in Australia, features a kangaroo, a wombat, a kookaburra, and is not Dot and the Kangaroo.
  18. I am not a fan of glitter nail polish. The removal is not worth the look, mostly because the look is not that awesome.

Tell Me About Yourself

Thanks to Rachel @ eggsinarow for nominating me by not nominating me!

20111209-211908.jpg

Here are the rules:
1. Thank the person who awarded you.
2. List 7 things people may not know about you.
3. Pass it on to 15 (!) other bloggers and don’t forget to notify them.

This’ll be tough! Here goes…

1. It’s been almost three years since we had a manual, and my left foot still wants to go to the clutch sometimes. Because, y’know, automatics don’t really count as driving.

2. I love eating extra sharp cheddar cheese with maple syrup. Try it. It’s awesome.

3. When I worked in an ER, I once got to assist in pumping a patient’s stomach who overdosed because one of the RNs started puking.

4. I’ve also touched a lot of dead people because LOPA (the Louisiana Organ Procurement Agency) won’t go near someone without an ID bracelet somewhere on them. Which is perfectly reasonable.

5. I scored high enough on the SAT in seventh grade to be accepted at the University of New Orleans. Sometimes I wonder where I’d be today if I’d taken that path.

6. When I was 22 I went to a WB audition as a favor to a friend. He didn’t get a callback, but I was hounded by a modeling agency for months afterward. I was content with food service.

7. I got married in tube socks. My dress touched the ground, no one knew. And since our wedding was outside, the hem was full of leaves by the time we left for our honeymoon.

So now you know!

Fifteen other bloggers? Seriously? I don’t think I know fifteen of you well enough to ask such a personal question. Okay, that’s a copout. I will just cross my fingers that at least five of you will take it upon yourselves to compose a list.

P.S. That includes you, husband dear, since you have a blog now!
