Thursday Thirteen

My fiber friend Darcy tagged me to dish a little about myself, so here are 13 "interesting" things about me:

1. I have a freckle constellation of the little dipper on my arm. Or maybe it's the big dipper. Astronomy was a long time ago. Can you see it there?

2. I hate soft/crunchy foods like deli salads (tuna, egg, chicken, etc.) because of the celery. Yuck. Or onions in meatloaf. Yuck. And don't go sprinkling any granola in my yogurt either!

3. I do not wear light pink. Maybe a fuschia, once or twice.

4. I do not exercise on purpose. All that sweat. Besides, think of the computer time I would be wasting!

5. Swimming is one of my favorite summer pastimes but I do not like to swim in the ocean past waist-deep. It's the little fish/big fish paranoia.

6. I love it when it rains or is windy because I can wear a hat without feeling guilty that I was too lazy to do my hair. Yes, it rained today (I wrote this post on Weds).
7. I cry when my in-laws go on vacation and leave me to fend for myself.

8. I put my 4 yo to bed in school clothes so we don't fight in the morning about getting dressed, and I am proud of that.

9. I consider myself a creative person but cannot even draw a stick figure:(

10. I have known hubster for half of my life and he is my best friend (and he doesn't read this blog so I'm not just trying to win points or anything!).

11. I have never paid for a babysitter. I don't stiff them, just have never hired a babysitter that wasn't Grandma or Auntie.

12. When I am sick, I never, ever sniffle. I think there is something gross about sniffing back in what your body is trying to get out. I go through boxes of tissues! It takes everything I have to deal with kidsters' sniffling (which about this time of year is constantly).

13. I love everything orange. Orange juice is my coffee. I love oranges, orange smelling stuff like lotions & perfumes, even the color orange. I HATE warm orange like General Tso's chicken and Duck a la...whatever.

14. I am intensely, insanely, (and probably clinically) fearful of spiders.

Ok, I know that was 14, but I thought you should really know about the last one. See, fiber friend Leeanne has one of the blogs I check in on, and for some reason I always seem to hit it when there's a spider thing going on. So be nice and give me a little warning, now that you know!

Here are the blogs I'm tagging:

Come on ladies, I want to hear about you!

I love the freckles! Not sure which one it is either though... Totally agree about the spiders, excercising and the sniffling!

This is fun! :) Will be posting soon!

Well thanks for tagging me. I love your freckles. How cool to walk around with a constellation. Does that mean when you get lost you can hold up your arm and find north? No huh? =)Oh well...
