11 Things…

The 12 year old girl in me was so excited to see Alicia at Poise in Parma and Jen from WhyCLE? posting an old chain mail favorite.  Back when AOL was king, I was totally that girl who had to answer surveys about myself and then forward them on to all my friends with a message about how if they didn’t fill it out and send it on they would have 7 years of bad luck.  So here, I am 27 going on 12… enjoy!

11 Random Things…

1.  I love condiments.  Especially anything tomato related.  Most of my meals involve ketchup, salsa or tomato sauce. 🙂

2. I broke my wrist when I was 8 while playing circus in a friend’s yard while seeing how high I could jump off a swing.  I told my parents I fell off the swing.

3. I had LASIK surgery 2 years ago in April.

4. If my house was burning down what one things I would save? Henry. (Don’t judge! Chris has opposable thumbs and can open the door himself.)

5. When I was little I had a underbite.  It took 6 years, 2 sets of braces, 3 upper palette expanders, 2 retainers and one set of headgear to correct. (See photo!)

6. I started college as a Theatre Education major.  On my 3rd day, I was informed by my advisor that they no longer offered that as an option.

7. I knew Chris for 3 years before we started dating. We were not close friends and I did not have a crush on him.

8. I love both my dogs but I kinda love Henry more.  Chris loves Kramer more though, so it’s okay… right?

9. I played clarinet from 5th-8th grade.

10. I question almost every choice I make.

11. There was a period where I would tell my mom I brushed my teeth even though I didn’t. I would go so far as to wet the toothbrush to make it more believable.

Alicia’s questions (that originally came from Stephanie):

  1. What is the most adventurous thing you have ever eaten?  Hmmm… chicken feet. YUCK!
  2. What would your last meal be if you had a say in it? Fajitas with a strawberry daquari
  3. What is your all time guilty pleasure food? Graeter’s Mint Chip Ice Cream
  4. What are you currently listening to? Was listening to “People & Things” by Jack’s Mannequin, now I’m back to “Ceremonials” by Florence & the Machine
  5. What is your favorite sport (to play, watch, or both)? I like to swim.  I enjoy watching football.
  6. One thing you are dying to try (this could be anything):  I’d love to go skydiving
  7. Fill in the blank: Food makes me…: HAPPY
  8. If you could have dinner with just one person, dead or alive, who would it be? My grandfather, Jim
  9. What is your “go to” restaurant for taking out of towners? Well I took a friend to XYZ Tavern recently…
  10. What quote sums up your life right now? “It is not who you are inside, but what you do that defines you.” -Batman Begins
  11. What is your favorite holiday? Christmas

    Yesssssssss. I’m so glad you tagged me.

    #6 made me laugh out loud. Not at your misfortune, but at how we’re supposed to make such a serious decision at 18, then they took it away from you anway. I think it all worked out for the best for you anyway since you get to take Henry to work sometimes. 🙂

  2. […] you might have noticed that chain lists have been clogging up the blogosphere. Well, Sara sucked me into it by tagging me to post 11 random things about myself, then answer the questions […]
