Here are the rules Via Jeanne B.:
The rules? Simple. Reveal ten things you likely don’t know about me, then pass the award on to someone else I admire. They shall do the same, and it’s just a whole big pile of Honest Scrap!
And here are ten things you probably never even wanted to know. Blame Cheeky. It’s her fault. 😀
1.) I am partially deaf, and read lips, which makes talking on the phone quite difficult. I tend to say “huh?” a lot while talking on the phone. I also tend to talk really loud to compensate for what I can’t hear.
2.) I was a junior varsity cheerleader. Shut. Up. I lost a bet. I’m not really a cheerleadery kind of person, but this one girl said there was no WAY I could do it, so I was all grrr, and “I’ll show you!” and so I did… and I made it… And the lesson I learned from that was the peer pressure will kill you. I was never bothered by her or peer pressure again… I don’t have any pictures because they don’t really put pictures of the scowling cheerleaders in the yearbook.
3.) I’m fascinated by urban legends, mythology, religions, and ghost stories.
4.) I believe in fate. I graduated high school a year early and went to a two year private college in the middle of nowhere. That’s where I met my husband, who was a sophomore. Had I not graduated early, we never would have met.
6.) I was awarded a WoHeLo medallion, which is the Camp Fire equivalent to a Boy Scout Eagle Scout Award.
7.) I have been to all 48 contiguous states, and I got to them all, at least once, by car. I love road trips… I don’t like planes.
8.) I’m ridiculously shy in person.
9.) I have seen Frank Sinatra in concert. It was the early 90’s, and I think I was 19 or so. We were the youngest people there and we hooted and hollered for him from the balcony while the old biddies down in the gallery scowled at us. It was great!!
10.) I love learning new things – and randomness. I have been known to have coffee shop conversations about anything from theoretical physics to Robot Chicken. It’s all good to me.
And there you have it. Ten random things about me that you never asked to know. 🙂
