Tagged By Kat


Kat tagged me a while back and I am just now getting around to getting it done. So here you will learn six more random facts all about moi.

1. I LOVE the shows Deadliest Catch and Ice Road Truckers. There's just something about those crazy rough men that I love. I think it would be a RIOT to hang out with them just for a day. Jarom thinks I'm nuts.

2. I like the wind. The city we live in is always windy. I never knew that was not normal until I moved away. I couldn't figure out what was "wrong" with the air. It just felt strange. Then I realized there was no breeze. I really enjoy a good breeze. I don't even mind the messy hair that comes with it.

3. I do not believe that fruit is a dessert. If it has fruit in it, it's considered a side dish or maybe a breakfast meal. To qualify as a dessert it must be chocolate or ice cream and a combo of both is the best. The only exception to this rule is cheesecake. I do enjoy a nice piece of cheesecake occasionally.

4. I play the piano and sing. I have my bachelor's degree in Music Education. Unfortunately I'm almost embarrassed to admit to it. I haven't done anything for so long that my poor trained voice, is no longer trained. :( (P.S. Don't tell my bishop, I do NOT want to be choir director.)

5. I'm paranoid about running out of gas. If my gas light comes on, I make a mad dash for the gas station. (And I panic the whole way there.)

6. I once had a pet pigeon that I rescued as a baby. (My rotten neighbor boy was going to shoot him.) He lived in a cage in my bedroom and thought he was human. (I'm not joking.) We tried many times to let him free, but he would fly to the telephone pole, and turn right around and fly back into the house only to land in front of the t.v. (Where he would spend hours watching.) I would put him on the handlebars of my bike and ride for hours with him. He loved it and would spread his wings out and pretend to fly. Sadly one of our cats eventually got him. He was too tame for his own good. What a great pet Dandy was.

Now, I think most of you have done this already, but if you want, or if you haven't done it yet, please do so. I love learning all about you!

Kat said...

Yippee...you did it. I don't think that anyone else has! :-) But "Ice Road Truckers?" Really? My husband is obsessed. I don't get it.

Great fun to read, I love those shows too. Jeff and I watch together and always feel bad when they crank up their pot and there are no crabs inside. Jeff use to work for a moving company and hang out with old crusties like that and LOVED it, except for the fact that they were always either drunk or drinking-- and reeked of cigs.

I'm so telling your bishop! Ha! Just kidding! Really though, your baby's not a baby anymore-time to focus on YOUR music again...just a little-"baby steps". I'm trying :)

Jennifer P. said...

First of all--you look so pretty in your picture. That shirt makes your eyes look super blue!

And I never knew about your pigeon. How fun! They are pretty cool birds. I rescued one once and it was pretty hard to part with--but the cat was eyeing it hungrily so it went to a bird rescue facility.

Now I'm off to go phone your bishop and see if he is aware of your music skills....

Oh my goodness, you were just the cutest (I sound so fake but I really mean it) in your early girly years...you...saving that poor pigeon from certain destruction! Then, you biking around with it on your handlebars. What a nice girl you were. No wonder I'm friends with you!

Elise said...

Fruit is NOT a dessert-- I totally agree. The pigeon story cracked me up!!

I can't believe you like the wind!

Brenda said...
