tagged again

Though this one is a new thing I dont think I did yet. Plus I love to think I'm so interesting that you can't get enough of the little trivia of my life.

7 things from Jen. Here are the rules of the game...1) Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog2) Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.3) Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.4) Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

1. I can do this crazy weird eye thing that freaks my hubby out. Basically I can make my eyes move independant of one another so I look like an alien or something. It's awesome.

2. I hate working. I am a type B personality if there ever was one. My job is fine, but if there was ever an opportunity to stay at home I'll take it. I have no sense of doing what's best for the company or anything like that (hubby is opposite).

3. I don't like people. While I'll usually defend a total stranger if they cut me off driving or were rude to me shopping or something, I'll do just about everything I can to avoid hanging out with good friends.

4. along the same lines, I don't have many good friends. My sister is my best friend and she's about the only person who I feel completely comfortable being myself. Like if anybody else came over they would be company, she's just Kerry. But I don't really mind only having her, see #3.

5. I had a bunch of accidents as a little kid. I had blood poisoning when I was around 5 from a sliver I wouldn't let my mom take out of the bottom of my foot. I remember the surgery for it because I kept trying to look but mom was holding my head away. I did see something but it just looked like a can of vegetable soup. I also burned my hand on the barbeque when I was around 4 because I was using it as a railing (it was by the stairs up to our house), only this time it was on. When I was around 2 my mom accidentally dislocated my shoulder/elbow (we can't remember which) because we were walking down the street and I decided to sit right there in the middle of the road. So she tugged on my arm to get me to come, but then couldn't understand why I was screaming so much. Lucky for us the doctor lived across the back alley and would make house calls. Since I was little there's been basically nothing wrong with me.

6. I think I can do anything. When shopping if something is over priced, I try and figure out how I can make it, from clothes to furniture. I make cards not because I like stamping and stuff, but because I couldn't imagine spending money on a card. Currently I'm trying to figure out how to make homemade pilsbury dough like crescents and country biscuits so I can make recipes that need it, but won't have trans fats.

7. We've had a computer for longer than I can remember. Probably since I was 4 (that would be 1986 folks). I remember dictating a story to dad who typed it up called the magic mittens, but I couldn't read yet. We've still got the print out.

Cool. Aren't I interesting? I would like to tag the following interesting people if they're interested...

Carolyn (does she even blog any more?)
Lindz (who does appear to blog more)
Tash (who probably needs an excuse to not study)
Cara (who is just interesting)
Jenn (also interesting, but might not want to as she's steering away from personal)
Amanda (who I don't really know that much about now that I think of it)
Jennifer (to round out all the Jen girls)

and anybody else who wants to play. (does anybody do this if they weren't named specifically though? you should, meant to tag you...)

I'm with you on making things without the trans fat! Do you have a breadmaker? Because those things are AWESOME and sometimes they've got recipes for things like making crescents and the like.

Also, how great is it how when you're a kid you can do just about anything without it affecting you in the long term? Kids are so fearless!

Jen said...

Yay! I love that you did this because I was interested to see what you would write!

You got into a LOT of crazy stuff as a kid!!!

And I like that you are frugal...I wish I was more like that!!!

tash said...

You should totally make a video of the weird eye thing and post it!

Kate said...

# 3 and #4 are totally me. I will do just about everything I can to get out of hanging out with people. I am completely an introvert and love being home, alone doing my own thing.

scratch said...

I want to know how to make the pilbury dough too! Not having any luck with finding a recipe though.

Jenn said...

This a fun one - you are itneresting!!
I'm with you on the working thing! If I could stay at home and still earn what I do, I would do it in a heart beat.

I'm glad you passed the stage of getting hurt!! blood poisening sounds terrible.

Thanks for tagging me, I'll get to this today. :)
