Tagged - Eight Things About Me

I was tagged twice this past week. Greenhaddock was the first to tag me, so I’ll start with this meme.

Here it goes:

Rules: Each person posts the rules before their list, then they list 8 things about themselves. At the end of the post, that person tags and links to 8 other people; then visits those people’s sites and comments, letting them know that they have been tagged, and to come read the post, so they know what they have to do.
  1. Men always envied my legs. Not what you think. When I was 13 years old, I could push more weight with my legs than my 16-17 year old male gymnast teammates.
  2. Because of no. 1, it was almost impossible for me to find boots where my calves would fit in. I still have trouble with that.
  3. I can watch almost any operation on TV, but when the eye is involved, I have to turn away. As a matter of fact, I was thinking at some point of getting my eyesight corrected with a laser operation. My Dad gave me a website where he had a cataract removed, so I went there. Just reading about it (no picts) made my stomach churn and feel faint.
  4. I often trip over things or slip (yes, I’m clumsy) because I don’t always watch where I’m going and then I can stumble for meters on end (think comedy), but I’ll hardly ever fall. It must be quite a show to watch, I tell you.
  5. I’ve had my share of torn ligaments and muscles through sports, bruises, scorches and stitches as a kid (a true tomboy, I was), but I never broke a bone in my body.
  6. I can’t kill big spiders. It grosses me out. Instead, I catch them with a tupperware and throw them out.
  7. I’ve been married twice.
  8. It drives me crazy when I decide to sit down and relax, and O-X starts cleaning up the place in frenzy.


I know many of you have done this one already, so I won’t tag anyone in particular. If you haven’t done it, yet, or just feel like doing it, then consider yourself tagged.

I'm the same with seeing eye operations on the TV - it freaks me out. Other operations are no problem to watch! :)

I'm still laughing over #4. My sister, Susan, was the same way and we always laughed at her. She laughed at herself and that only made us laugh more.

If I start laughing at YOU when I see you, I promise to tell you that it's not you but that I'm laughing at Susan. :)
