Thank you Stefani! I was wracking my brain trying to think of a post-Thanksgiving blog topic that didn't involve food, tight jeans, or dirty dishes, when Stefani graciously tagged me for the "5 random things" meme.
1. Here I am at three.
You can see from the photo I started early with my love of chocolate chip cookies. Today I still love to have cookies for breakfast (or any other time of day).
2. My sister and I have birthdays that are nine days apart. We always celebrated together, but our mother made sure we each got our own cake. That is me on the right with the fashionably wide collar.
3. While in middle school I had the unusual ability of being able to do a backbend on my elbows. Back then I thought this was really something special. Now, after spine physical therapy and massage therapy I am not so sure.
4. I fell in love with and married the first and only boy I ever dated. We were married in the gazebo where the movie Dirty Dancing was filmed. My husband and I were honored to have Janette Carter (who at the time was the last surviving member of the legendary Carter Family) and her friend, Bill Cliftons, sing and play at our wedding.
5. My last random fact is that I once almost threw up on Jeff Daniels. Really. When I was pregnant with P., I had difficulty keeping anything down. Even water. I went to the doctor to have the glucose test. I had to go in the little blood draw room and drink a bottle of nasty syrup and wait for an hour to have my blood drawn. As I was waiting, and trying very hard to keep the syrup down so as not to have to drink another bottle, Jeff Daniels came into the lab area. He sat next to me and I just sat there thinking "Please don't let me throw up on Jeff Daniels..." The nurse looked out of the little window and asked if I was OK. I guess I didn't look good. I said I was OK. I sat quietly until the hour was up. They called my name and I carefully went to the back and had my blood drawn. I just made it out to the parking lot before I threw up! I'm sure Jeff Daniels does not realize how lucky he is!
Thanks to my sister for the old photos, scanner, and the super fast internet connection to do this post. My set up at home is a super slow dial up connection. We are eagerly awaiting another faster choice...
I had fun writing this post but I hesitate to tag anyone specifically because I fear putting folks on the spot. I know we'd all be entertained with random facts from Kim, Beth, and Jodi, if they feel inspired to give it a whirl. Or, you could join in and send me a link in my comments. Thanks.
