Double Tagged!

I've been tagged by Beth and Marly to share Seven Random Facts about myself.

According to the rules, I'm supposed to tag other people...but I welcome anyone reading this to share their random facts on their blog (just let me know so I can come read it).

If you don't have a blog, feel free to share a fact or two in the comment section!

  1. I always have an extra leash in my car for when I see dogs running around by themselves. You might be surprised (or not) that I see a lot of pooches running around Chicago and my town --- it freaks me out. I'm always afraid I will see one get hit by a car... I don't even want to think about it.
  2. I have a low tolerance for bad manners.
  3. My hair hasn't been past my shoulders since 4th grade. I like to have my hair in the shortest bob possible...it feels weird when I can feel hair on the back of my neck. I actually shaved my head before I graduated from college --- boy was my mom pissed. I always wanted to do it and figured it was the last chance before I got a "real job."
  4. My family moved around quite a bit when I was growing up. Between kindergarten and 12th grade I attended seven schools. I made my Sacrament of Reconciliation twice (raised Catholic) but never studied the 50 state capitals.
  5. I'm very uncoordinated. It's not unusual for me to suddenly fall down while walking down the street. The most embarrassing time was crossing Michigan Avenue in the heart of a major shopping district in Chicago during lunchtime. It was crowded and I just fell in the middle of the street. Of course, I wasn't hurt...I just picked up my bag and kept walking like nothing happened.
  6. I debuted my line of edgy handmade greeting cards at the 2003 National Stationary Show in NYC. It was almost sold to a major greeting card company...They just didn't have the vision.
  7. In 5th grade, I participated in an exchange student program and lived with a family in a suburb of Paris. I still can't believe my parents let me go! I studied french during Junior High but switched to Spanish in high school. On my recent trip to Mexico, I kept mixing up French, Spanish, and even a couple Polish words.

I find it funny how many things I have in common with so many knitters/bloggers! I too moved a lot in my school years. Between 6th and 7th grade I went to 5 different schools!

I have always wanted to shave my head but never had the balls!

I too carry an extra leash in my car for the very same reason!

Very interesting! I'm one of these uncoordinated people too. Your current WIPs are lovely!

Ok, #5 is completely me as well. In fact I will only trip on flat terrain, which is so embarrassing!

Me TOO! If there is a grain of sand out of place I will find it, trip on it and fall ungracefully and spill everything out of whatever bag I'm carrying, even if it is zippered shut.

Very cool about the greeting card thing. Do you think you'll ever try something like that again?

Wow, I really didn't think anyone else kept extra leashes in their car! COOL!

Ilix said...

Wow! Paris, that's so cool!

I never moved, until I was 18 yrs. old.
