5 random facts about moi

My fabulous blog designer Lex has tagged me for the meme. Hers however, was actually 6... I wrote 5.

as you will see though, this may count as #6 in an unconventional way. the fact is, I hate doing things in weird increments.

For example, this meme is 6 questions and not 5, that bothers me. So i made it 5.

When I am photoshopping a picture, I usually have to make sure that I adjust things in increments of 5. Sometimes I compromise for the sake of the picture... but it's gotta be an important couple of numbers. otherwise, let the rounding begin.

And for what it's worth, I've actually gotten better at *NOT* doing this recently. I'm trying to let my "gut" guide me as i photo edit, but sometimes it just has to be in fives. So here goes my 5 random factoids.

1. When my mom goes away for more than a day, I start to miss her :( if i was a guy, i think they would call me a momma's boy... but since i'm not (at least last time i checked) i'll settle for momma's girl.

2. i secretly like being overtired... because it means my life is full of things to do and (usually) happy

3. i am in love with trees. I love them... in the summer, in the winter and everything in between. in the summer i simply faint at the sight of light coming through the leaves... and in the winter when the branches are snow-laden I feel like i'm inside of a fairy tale. (i'm going to eventually write a whole post about this lol)

4. There are only 3 foods which I absolutely detest and WILL NOT EAT. EVAH.
- mushrooms
- cottage cheese
- oatmeal (my aunt once made me eat oatmeal when i was about 4 and I threw it up all over the floor. she then spanked me for "making myself puke" i can assure you however, there was nothing voluntary about it. I hate hate hate it!)

5. I love kids (no surprise there) however, I do not want to HAVE kids of my own for a very long time. I seriously don't know if i would be able to handle it. I get to go home at the end of the day... I'm sure that when I eventually DO have them, I will be fine, but right now, the mere thought sends my heartrate up and makes me feel anxious. I'm ok with not having any right now!

Well that's it... for now. I'm sure you all feel enlightened now and much more in tune with who i am. which after all, is the point... you know you love me!

And since this is a meme, and I don't do this all the time, I would like to hear some random facts about YOU. It doesn't matter who you are, if you want to post your own, go ahead and then we'll all have fun reading :)

right there with you...i hate hate cottage cheese. the fact that it is chunky gets to me. yuck! gotta love moms!! i loved my mom and would have definitely considered my self a "momma's girl" no question about it...

No mushrooms? I would die!

And, with as much as you like kids, you would be excellent mommy. You will find that with your own, you willingly sacrifice much more than you ever could with others. In other words, you wouldn't want to "go home" at the end of the day. Well, maybe sometimes and maybe for a brief vacation, but you always want to come back, because they are a real part of you. :)

I'm laughing over the whole oatmeal fiasco. I can't believe your aunt spanked you...I also can't believe it made you throw up. My kids love oatmeal. We eat it like twice a week usually.
You are one funny gal!

Susan September 19, 2008 at 11:39 PM're one of THOSE people. The ones that don't eat mushrooms, oatmeal or cottage cheese.
My sister once threw up because my grandmother made her eat a slice of cucumber. She never made her eat cucumber again.l

That's sweet about how you feel about your mom! Momma's girl...:D

Interesting facts. The foods you'll never eat - I actually love them. But I won't gross you out with the details. ;)

I am going to post a tree picture for you next Friday - for real! Last fall I went out with my daughter to take some pics & I managed to take some really pretty pictures. Trees for you next Friday!

I love love love trees, too! And each type of tree is so faschinating. I should have more pictures of trees around my house than I do.

I have to have things in increments of two or five. Because that is LOGICAL.
