I've been meme'd

I've been tagged by my friend Karen Lee with A meme. I'm supposed to tag other people, but I'm afraid that all the people I know are the same people that Karen already tagged, so I don't have anyone new to tag, but I'll play along anyway.

Here’s how it goes: Each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed. At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names (see below), then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.


Eight possibly unique things about me:

1) when I was younger I wanted to be Indiana Jones when I grew up (and still secretly have the same dream)

2) I used to ice skate competitively

3) I used to be a gymnast

4) In high school, I spent a month traveling through France with my French teacher and some class mates.

5) I used to go to church with Clay Aiken before he was on American Idol

6) I can crochet and quilt

7) I once had a turtle named Rocky, but he dug a hole under the fence and ran away

8) when I was a kid, my best friend really really really wanted a pet, but her parents wouldn't let her have one. So, We found a pool of water in an old flower barrel in my back yard with "tadpoles" in it. We scooped up the tadpoles and put them in a plastic baggy so she would have her very own bunch of baby frogs. To make a long story short, it turns out that they weren't tadpoles. They were mosquito larva. When the mosquito's matured, they ate through the plastic baggy and infested my friends home. Oops.

Hey, I quilt too - maybe we should start a twelve step program.

I also had turtles as pets. The first one was a snapping turtle baby. We named him Snapper. The second one was also a snapping turtle baby. We named him Snapper Two. They both had to be set free as they moved into maturity. Ouch.

I think we should go wild and crazy and become Amish!

LOL Christy,
I have a number of friends who are amish. Perhaps they'll let you move in with them!

Also, I can't believe you did both the ice skating and the gymnastics. I SO wanted to be you when I was a kid!

playing the fiddle would've been #9 on my list, had that been the designated number. #10 would have listed my dream to open a bug and critter confectionary shop with a specialty hot sauce on the side! #11 would have been that I once wrote a fan letter to Ian Sands.
