7 things about me

OK, Tammi. I’ll play along this time. I’ve had a hard time coming up with 7 things that aren’t commonly known about me… that I will share publicly. Anyway, here goes…

  1. I have a birthmark, but it’s different than most. It’s a scar under my… um, which one is it… wait while I go check… left eye caused by the forceps that the doc HAD to used to pull me out. I came into this world being difficult and haven’t changed much since!
  2. I watch the needle when I get a shot or give blood. I don’t know why, but I do. It even freaks me out a little that I do that. **shiver**
  3. Green is my favorite color. Even before green was the “cool” color. Could be related to the fact that I was born on St. Patrick’s Day. I don’t know. Whatever it is, I like green.
  4. I have some interesting ancestors. Rumor is that my great, great grandfather was a wizard. And from what I understand, he wouldn’t have been in the Order of the Phoenix… definitely more of the Death Eater type. OK, pay attention here – My dad was told by his grandmother that when her father died his books (containing spells, curses and other types of black magic) were burned. She also claimed that he once drew a man’s silhouette with a heart in it on a tree, wrote a name in the silhouette and then shot the heart with a pistol. The man whose name was written in the silhouette died of a heart attack. CREEPY, huh?
  5. I LOVE to go fast!! I know the top speed of all 3 cars sitting in my driveway. When things are getting to me and I need to escape, I find a long straight road and go just as fast as I can. I love the feeling of being on the edge of control, not sure how things are going to turn out… flirting with disaster. It makes me feel alive… in the moment… the world is on hold… nothing else matters except right now. Like I said, I LOVE IT!!! Maybe that’s why racing in the Baja 1000 is on my bucket list.
  6. I HATE baseball. I’m not really much of a sports guy… team sports anyway. I’ve been known to say, “If it involves a round ball, I’m not interested.” But baseball is one of the worst in my book. A bunch of guys standing around for hours waiting for another guy to hit a ball just doesn’t do much for me. The fact that I suck at it has nothing to do with my disdain, by the way. 😛
  7. I regret not serving in the military… sometimes. Not because of some deep seated unfulfilled patriotic duty – they just have the coolest toys. They get to ride around in big trucks and tanks blowing things up. HOW FREAKING COOL IS THAT?!?! Plus, read why I love to go fast in #5 again. Not to mention that sometimes I wish it were OK to shoot a few people, not many, just one or 2 here and there… damn moral convictions!!

Well there it is. Do you still love me?

I’m supposed to tag a few people, but anyone that I would tag has been already. Guess I’m done.

  1. Let me just say, I think it is uber cool that you are related to a Death Eater. I am just a bit jealous.

  2. #2 – me too. but i LIKE it.
    #4 – THAT is incredible. Not the part about being an evil wizard and what-not, but the fact that you have that in your history….COOL.
    #6 – me too. Luck would have it I marry a guy who’s freaking obsessed with baseball. And GOLF. Doesn’t get much worse than that.

    Thanx for playing along. 🙂

  3. I played your silly little game. Check me out.
