I've Been Tagged!

| 7 Comments | No TrackBacks

Okay, so it's silly, but for whatever reason, it's like I'd been left out... well, Leila tagged me, so I guess I'm it.

I am to relate 7 things that are weird and/or random about myself.

I'll start out with my standard weird thing:

1. I have 4 birth certificates. Okay, previously, my standard was 3, but last year I discovered I had a 4th, so now it's 4. (2 from the Falklands, 1 from the US consul in Argentina, and 1 from the US [signed by the Secretary of State].

2. I've lived in 5 countries outside of the US. However, inside the US I have only ever lived in Ohio.

3. I despise cutting nails. And now I have another set to tend to. It's actually the one thing about motherhood that holds absolutely no attraction for me. I don't even just feel neutral about it. I actively dislike it.

4. I bought a car once. I had it about 2 weeks. By the time I got rid of it, I had involved the police and paid about $100. I put a stop on the check to the "owners" because it turned out they weren't the owners as they'd never signed over the title. That made them sort of angry and they threatened to send over big nasty boyfriend - at which point I called the police (only myself and my younger sister were at home at the time). I took it to a mechanic who made it clear it wasn't worth my time. So I paid for someone to haul it away. A pretty inexpensive lesson all in all.

5. It wasn't until I was in my twenties that I found out not all families grew up making their own pies. It blew my mind so thoroughly that I asked my mother whether this was indeed true amongst her own friends. I was truly shocked.

6. I like to eat day old popcorn.

7. Sometimes, I forget my son is a boy. I actually think "she" and have to correct myself.

I'd link people to tag them, but writing the code takes time and Liam is napping and I'm afraid he'll wake up and I won't have finished, so:

Rae, Maman, Mensch, Kristen, Nathan, and yes, even you Papa, consider yourselves tagged. Oh, and I love you!

That's so funny, the thing about thinking he is a girl. I did the same (opposite) thing with Lillian. So strange. No idea why.

i keep on saying that i'm so glad i tagged people with this thing---most of whom don't know what a meme/tag is!---and i'll say it again: i'm so glad i did this. i loved reading your list. these are all awesome random and weird things.

love from leila

Dear NY Jets. If a woman reporter comes into your locker room, u must treat her with equality & civility. Or get a job in construction.

Thanks for all of the information. On a side be aware, how do you deal with all of the spam you get in your weblog? My new weblog is getting destroyed by random spammers and I've been spending a variety of time and power deleting feedback its simply not funny. . I get so drained preventing spam that I feed I ought to cease operating a weblog entirely.

The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod's. It works well, but isn't as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that's not an issue, but if you're planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod's larger screen and better browser may be important.

fantastic issues altogether, you just received a logo new reader. What could you recommend in regards to your submit that you made some days in the past? Any certain?

Good blog! I truly love how it is easy on my eyes and the data are well written. I'm wondering how I might be notified when a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your feed which must do the trick! Have a nice day!
