I got tagged by the Cooking Ninja (that stealthy gal) to list 7 random things about myself that you probably don't know. So here goes.
1- I've jumped out of an airplane. On purpose. My sister and I took a day jump class and went parachuting. I wanted to be able to say I'd done something bold and adventurous in my life. It was combination exhilarating and terrifying. I'm so glad I went but have no need to ever go again.
2 -I had 3 of my 4 babies at home with a midwife and no drugs. The first one was in a birthing center with a midwife, also no drugs. I love being in my own space with my own comfort measures to have my babies. It sure beats going to the hospital and having nurses and doctors boss you around and possibly getting cut into. The current US c-section rate is 1 in 3. Yikes!
3- I can make my ears wiggle, without using my hands. Don't feel badly if you can't do it; it's a genetic trait.
4- I am the world's fussiest shopper for shoes. I can't stand shoes that pinch, slip, slide, or bind. My mother would go nuts trying to get me to buy school shoes; it took forever.
5- I loathe running. It makes my lungs and knees hurt and my bum and boobs flop.
6- I speak in movie quotes. Some TV shows, too. Currently, a lot of Arrested Development and The Office. It saves the time and energy of having to think up my own witty lines, but baffles and mystifies people who haven't seen the movie.
7- I lived a year in Germany when I was 8. I attended a German school and learned German by the sink or swim method. There I learned about the joys of zimmels, and Nutella. My best friend was a fun, feisty German girl named Manuela Schindler. Anyone know her?
There. Wasn't that enlightening?
Now it's my turn to tag. Participation is entirely voluntary! If you'd like to do it, just post seven random things about yourself that others might not know.
