Them’s the facts, Jack

1. I can teach myself to do just anything. I’m a very hands-on learner, and I can usually figure something out if I do it enough times. I taught myself to read music (treble clef that is, I learned bass clef in band), I taught myself to play the piano (not Rachmaninoff, but still, I could play with two hands), I taught myself to knit, and many other things. Depending on how interesting I find the activity, I will either decide to learn more, or I’ll live with knowing as little as I want.

2. I’m not very patient. I think this is because I’m so hands-on. I can’t stand to sit back and watch someone else do something. BUT, I try very very hard to hold myself back. Sometimes I’m more successful than others. I’m going to get more practice at this, because I think I’m going to teach Zed to cook. He’s learned laundry and dishes. Cooking is next on the ‘survival skills’ list.

3. I’m a Sagittarius. This description is pretty accurate of me.

4. I wear my heart on my sleeve and my emotions are very rarely hidden. This has gotten me in trouble many times. If you make me mad, you pretty much know it immediately. In the past people may have referred to my ‘glare of death’. I don’t know what they may have been talking about…

5. If I could sing, I would want to be a rock star. And not some skanky pop star like Britney or whatever. But like Gwen Stefani before she got all weird with the yodeling.

6. When I was 4, I tried to run away from home. My mom had promised to take me to the zoo, but was going to take a nap first. I decided not to wait. So I took her purse, got in the front seat, and emptied her purse to find the keys. Had it not been for the mailman that foiled my plans, I would have made it too. Headstrong? Nah.

7. I took ballet for 12 years. At my first recital, I decided to explore the stage. During the big kids production of ‘Hansel & Gretel’ I snuck onto the stage behind the oven prop. When the Witch opened the oven door, I yelled “Boo!” to her and then scurried back off the stage. I’m not mischevious either.

8. I eat my meals one food at a time. Meat, vegetable, vegetable. Salad has to be completed before I start on my entree, or else the salad doesn’t get finished. Same for any appetizer. So it really preturbs me when waiters rush my meal through. I’ve been known to send my entrees back because I wasn’t ready for them. Especially after I ask the waiter to delay putting the order in.

Golly that was hard. I’ve done a few of these type of memes and it gets harder and harder to find things to share. And now, 8 people to tag. How’s about… Carnealian, Silly Old Bear, Bone, Sparky Duck, Jolynn, Marie, TSM, & Laura. Don’t be shy now ya’ll.


  1. word, a double tag

  2. I tried to run away from home, too, except I think I was about nine or ten. And I was only running away to visit my Mom at work. I got about halfway across (a small) town before Dad found me.

  3. I’m 45 and I’d still like to run away from home some days. You just wait till your kids are teens and one of them comes home with a mohawk… oh wait, he already did that… LOL!!

    (j/k.. I never know who the hell is gonna take me too seriously on these things)

    12 years of ballet and you ended up a runner!

    You eat your meals a lot like my hub’s family, one food at a time!
    One of these days, I’m going to put one dish on the table at at a time, and they’ll have to eat that dish before I bring out the next one.. lol

  4. Geesh, 8 things about me? I’m going to try to be original about this…
    1. I ran away from home once….to the back yard.
    2. My first real concert was the Osmonds, in 1974. I would still shreik if I ever met Donnie Osmond in person.
    3. I stole a ring once from a “junk” jewelry store. My mom caught me.
    4. My friends neighbor called the cops on us for walking between their houses at 2:00 a.m. We knew the cops were after us so we ran through a cemetery and layed behind the stones till they passed by. They eventually caught us at her parents house. Made us wake her parents up. They thought it was pretty hilarious. Thank God it wasn’t my parents!!!
    5. I used to spray my friends dog with a hose when they weren’t home. Not sure what that was all about. I’m thinking the dog may have liked it. Or not.
    6. I snuck behind stage once during a choir concert at school and “guesstimated” who I was behind because the curtain was there. I grabbed the behind of the person on the other side of the curtain. Not sure if I got the right guy or not! Someone got a surprise.
    7. Like you, I’m a fantastic Sagittarian and I am pretty close to the description of them. I think, should the two of us ever meet face to face, the world better look out. Nick and Brian will have to hold the bail money.
    8. I like to surprise people. I snuck up on Brian the other day when he was vacuuming. He wasn’t laughing.

  5. I’m pretty particular about food, too. I tend to eat one thing at a time.

  6. Ooooh, such a spirited Lass you were/are. I love it.

    Gwen Stephani has been yodeling?

  7. I haven’t been reading for a couple of days. I’m going to do this for my next post!
