25 Inconsequential Things About Me

April 7, 2013 at 12:43pm

1. I am pure nerd. Two, too and to are different words and they're there to be used in their proper place.....
2. My little sister chewed the fingers off my Tiny Thumbelina doll and I was mad at her for decades....I would give anything for her to still be here to be mad at...
3. I was changing clothes for PE in 5th grade on the stage ( where the girls changed) and one of the "mean girls" pulled the curtain on me..... I have been drawn to performance ever since... ;-)
4. When I was 9 I had a near death watch still runs paranormal anything, and I have still made gazillions of stupid mistakes....I just know that there is more to life than our bodies...
5. Hiking 20 miles,one way, on foot up a mountain range to watch a meteor shower on a glacier makes perfect sense to me...
6. My favorite miracle is trillium, closely followed by a great batch of wine given the alcohol % is at least 12!...
7. Stuffed grape leaves smothered in tzaziki is truly food of the gods
8. I like to stand on chairs to pretend to be "normal" height... (this is, of course, when nobody is looking)then I read that "normal" is a dryer setting and tried standing on a dryer.... well, 5'2" is just fine...
9. I put peanut butter on my BLT's...
10. I am pure the bird, happiest on or in the water...
11. Can't come to grips with electronic readers....I am a book whore.....I love the smell of the the feel of the paper and the physical connection..... Still have books from my childhood....treasures...
12. Some folks love bacon but my carbohydrate grail is popcorn.... Can't stop.....Pure gluttony!
13. Fresh peas are overrated but canned should be outlawed....
14. I gag on potato or macaroni salad..... wretched..... visceral yuck!
15. Jello? Another yuck! Why would you want to eat the boiled down hooves of animals? (Even if they are fun colors, smell fruity and jiggle?)
16. I took up drums on a dare in a neighbor boy's tree house when I was 12...He said girls were too dumb to play drums!... Ha!
17. Scared to death of heights but would love to go ziplining....just to face it. The thought of standing on that platform and jumping...even with a harness and line...makes my fingers tingle...
18. The stars, on a camping trip, at 3:00 in the morning, seen through old growth timber tops qualifies as "breathing heaven"..... I breathe in and can hardly think to exhale..... The moment suspends....
19. The worst prank I ever played was emptying out a friend's metal lunch box, hiding the contents, and filling it with blue jello and sticking it back in the fridge.....
20. The most terrifying/and funny moment of my life was when I first held a big snake and was told it was venomous! Caught on camera.... ;-)
21. I dance to cheesy 80's and 90's rock music when I am doing housework....the cheesier and more bump and grind the better!
22. Canadian whisky is always packed in a hydration bag when I go up a trail.....
23. Have always wanted to operate a deli/bookstore that would also feature local artisan's work...
24. Wish I could have a seat on a space shuttle and look out the window at earth....seriously...
25. Always wanted to sing like Tina Turner..... And that's a wrap.... ;-) Who's next?
