10 Things About Awesome Mom

I got tagged twice to tell you ten things about me (who happens to be one of my favorite people). So, here goes:
  1. I sleep with an eye mask (no, I will not post pictures of that). I got in the habit when I was working nights (the year before I got hitched to my hubbie). It is a bit addicting and I have been using the eyes mask off and on ever since.
  2. My favorite color is blue.
  3. I used to bite my nails when I was a little kid. One time I was gnawing away when my Uncle (my mother's eldest brother who was a doctor) told me that biting your nails was a great way to get sick due to the germs living under your finger nails. I stopped biting them right then and there. I think I was only really biting my nails because I was seeing my mother do it.
  4. I met Jerry Cantrell when I was in high school. Oddly enough my sister and I met him at a Pearl Jam concert. I was the envy of my friends. A side note: He went to the same high school that I went to (not at the same time though since I am a lot younger than he is). My chemistry teacher had him as a student.
  5. My favorite rose is Peace.
  6. I can pick up things with my feet. This talent is quite handy (or maybe I should use footy) when I am pregnant. I don't have to bend down to get something off of the floor, instead I pick it up with my feet and bring it up to my waiting hand.
  7. I like to read the newspaper every day. I am not always able to, but I try. The first section I head for is the comics.
  8. I used to have bangs. I kept them for much longer than I really wanted them because I was afraid that my forehead was too high to look good with out them. One day when I was in college I just got tired of messing with them and put a head band on so I could grow them out.
  9. If I was an animal I would be a cat. They get to nap a lot, they are very self sufficient and can live with out humans and they have cool eyes.
  10. I have always wanted to have fangs. I think they would make my smile just a little bit more menacing.


I am not tagging anyone just so I can be contrary, but if you want to do it consider yourself tagged.

I wish I cold read the paper every day. I keep ordering it and then not reading and then canceling...it is a vicious cycle of gilt and not reading! Good for you, even if you get to it not as frequently as yo would like...

I have always wondered if sleep masks are comfortable, it seems like the band around my head would keep me up.

I wish I could pick up things with my feet-that would be like I had the extra hands I really need!!!

When I see my my napping cats--they look so comfortable--I often wish I could be one!

I would totally be a cat as well. Laying in a sunbeam, napping in the middle of the day. HEAVEN!

I like your #10 the very best of all, although I like knowing about the prowess of your feet, too.

that thing of picking things up with you feet is true natural-born talent. i've never done it or tried, but one day my daughter just started picking things up with her feet and i was amazed by this.

and i have thought MANY times that i would love to be a cat, solely because of the nap factor.

Huh! I like MY list way better!

Guinevere Meadow said...

hm. Fangs. Not only would that improve your smile, it would make you much more fearsome to disobedient children...lol!
