Things You Never Wanted to Know About Me

I got my very first blog award! Whatever that means. I'm honored, even though 14 other bloggers got the same award. Anyway, now I'm supposed to tell seven things about myself. I am not as creative (or have as many working brain cells right now) as Adrienne at No Points for Style who picked at theme for her seven things. So let's just say my theme is "Random". And here are seven random things about myself that you probably didn't want to know.

1. I have 5 tattoos.

2. If I could have any super power it would be to eat whatever I want and not gain weight. Yes, I realize this is incredibly selfish. But I love food. And it doesn't love me.

3. I am a spelling and grammar nazi. And no, I am not an English major. But when my facebook friends write status updates with misspelled words it takes all I have not to leave a comment correcting it (and sometimes I do).

4. I'm obsessed with hand lotion. I have sensory issues and hate when my hands feel dry. I also can't stand chalk, felt, baby powder, and sand paper.

5. I was once hypnotized in a comedy show and thought I was Aretha Franklin and sang R-E-S-P-E-C-T in front of a crowd of about two hundred.

6. Dh calls me a job hopper. I've never kept the same job longer than 2 years. My most interesting jobs have been selling cotton candy at the circus, painting ski lifts in Vermont, and massage therapy. My favorite job was working at a school for kids with autism. Second runner up - Dairy Queen.

7. I'm pretty well traveled, some of my favorite places include: Glacier National Park in Montana (most beautiful), Amsterdam (coolest city), Puerto Rico, Mexico (nicest people), Mammoth Lakes California, Brussels Belgium (most tasty treats), and Horseshoe Beach in Bermuda. The saddest place I've ever been is St.Petersburg Russia.

So there you go. Seven random things you didn't want to know about me. If you have any complaints, take it up with Adrienne ;)

Oh, and I'm supposed to tag 15 people except that the only 15 people my blog is linked to (which only has to do with mental illness) have already been tagged by others. So I'm just gonna be lame and end it here.


  1. I liked your list of "7"!
    Funny - I am a 'grammar nazi' too, although not with my own writing...go figure. ;-)

    I also have tattoos...2 of them. A phoenix on my shoulder, and a moon with a fairy on my leg. (now there's some random info you didn't need to know about me.)
    Hope everything is going well for you & your little ones!
    Take care. :-)

  2. Yay! So glad you enjoyed it! FWIW, I'm A-OK with you not following the rules. I'm going to create a No Points for Style award that will be string, rule, and obligation free - much more suitable for those of us who shoehorn blogging into uber-busy, unpredictable lives and don't have time for all of that!

    Loved your 7 things! I too have five tattoos, am a grammar and spelling nut, and have a serious hand lotion issue. I have hand lotion at ever sink, here in my office, on my nightstand, in my purse and my car, EVERYWHERE that I spend any amount of time! Also? Carmex.

    So great to read a few fun things about you. Thanks for sharing!
