6 randomly fantastic facts about me...

Jenny 'tagged' me, meaning I get to write 6 random and ever-so-useful facts about me. So here goes nothing:

1.) I eat from 3 food groups. Ice cream, cereal and decaf German Chocolate Blended mochas. Seriously, I could partake of any of the above mentioned items before, during or after any given meal any day, any time!

2.) I eat pathetically slow. It can actually get embarrassing because I'm always the last at the table. It's not that I eat more than other people, I just eat slowly. And I talk a lot, which doesn't help me scarf the food down any faster. Rob and I were at a fancy fund-raising dinner a few weeks ago and I had to ask him when I needed to stop eating. He told me I'd be fine as long as they were still serving desserts. Well, when the waiter came and asked if he could take my plate while my fork was still in my hand I got the hint. Oh, the chicken cordon bleu was sooo good too, I was sad to leave some on my plate!

3.) Enough about food. I've always had a secret desire to be famous. I'd prance around as a little girl dreaming of being an Olympic gymnast (though I'm not very athletic). I also wanted to be a writer, or an artist. Most significantly I wanted to be Governor of Oregon. I dreamt of acting or singing too (I can't carry a tune... I just wanted to be famous remember!). I think this blog is currently the closest thing I have as a claim to fame. Only, it's pretty much only friends and family members that read it, but still... it's a start!

4.) I've never excelled at anything. This is something that's always bothered me actually. Most people have something they're really good at: a skill, a talent, a gift. Sure, I've got some gifts, some skills and some talents, but I don't excel at any of them. I'll never be the star of the team, the first to be called to do something, bake something, create something or fix something. Don't get me wrong, I don't have a low self-esteem, it's just this thing that's always bugged me. This goes back to my deep-seeded desire for fame. Hmm, I'm sensing a trip to the therapist coming on...

5.) I'd like to start my own business someday. I'm just not really sure what I would do!

6.) I enjoy doing crafty things (especially piecing together quilts) but I haven't had much in the way of time, energy or space to do any of these things since Titus was born. I was even dreaming about starting some projects today... but it's unlikely. Oh, and I really like board games too, especially Settlers of Catan!

So, now my job is to tag others that probably won't respond. But hey, why not try? Sara Jane, Jennifer, Jessi and Krista... good luck!

Hi, Just wanted to say I enjoyed reading the 6 facts about you, and just a thought for you; my favorite person in this whole earth, she didn't have any claims to fame, or titles for the best at anything, other than the fact that her five kids would have said she was the best mom in the world, and truly meant it. Maybe that's the gift you excel at! I know you are an amazing mother!!!(and wife) (not to mention a great writer too!)
