8 Random Facts

I've been tagged by my friend Mandy to list 8 random/weird facts about myself on my blog...so here they are. (You can read Mandy's facts on her blog...I love the baby food one..that always makes me smile.)
1. I love reality TV (yes I know it is not real....)
2. I've been arrested twice.
3. I love to do laundry....I think this has to do with my childhood but doing laundry makes me feel responsible, motherly, and productive.
4.I worked in radio for almost three years while in high school. Getting paid to talk....a great job for me!
5. I was in in the "Miss Clinton" pageant when I was 18. it still cracks me up! I rocked in interview...but even then my thighs looked way to big in a swim suit!
6. I think fruit snacks smell like chap stick so sometimes I want to eat them because I ate chap stick as a child then other times they make me feel like I could throw up!
7. I love paradoxes.
8. I really love college students......really I do.....I DO!

I tag my mom, my mother in law Vera and my friend Parian....( you can just add it to to published comment since you don't have a blog....this will be fun....I wonder how long it will take?)

I am sorry for all of you who came to the blog today expecting something spiritual I hope you don't think less of me! I guess since it is all truth it is at least godly.

1. I have been in 40 of the continental states and dream of finishing the other 8 some day.

2. I let someone put a HUGE snake around my neck in the Bahamas.

3. I love to iron...when all of our kids were still home, every morning I ironed what the five of us would wear that day.

4. I graduated from high school after my junior year and went to college....this was not a smart move for me and remains on my list of "what not to do with your life".

5. I love to type and frequently go to the internet and take free typing tests.

6. I've never been bored.

7. There is candy hidden in my home and I'm the only one who knows where....another candy box is available for family and friends and they do know where it is.

8. If I found $10 in a forgotten old purse, I would spend it before the day was over.

I was really happy to know that I knew 7 of these facts already. We really are family!! The only one I didn't know was the chap stick/fruit snacks one. I HATE fruit snacks, so this one made me laugh. I love you too, even more knowing all these things.

Mandy said...

hee-hee. i love posting silly things that have no point, but it's fun to learn these things.

Fruit snacks/chap stick? Never made a connection between the two. I even went and ate some of the girls fruit snacks to see if you knew what you were talking about....I think your crazy!!!
We love y'all.

I thought you love to do laundry because it made you think of me??!! You know no one can top your 8--you're a wild thing--but we've all known that for years!

1. I LOVE to organize anything or any event I can get my hands on!

2. My laundry is going just 24/7--I think it's therapy for me! I also love to iron--everything is ironed before it goes in the closet.

3. I'm ADDICTED to laying in the sun. I've always said that when I get to heaven and receive my perfect body that it's going to be dark complected!

4. In high school, a bunch of friends and I once egged a house with dozens of eggs--we didn't like the girl that lived there! Now that I own a home, this thought haunts me with guilt!

5. When I was young, I used to go into the communion preparation room and eat handfuls of the tiny communion bread--I still love the taste!

6. Traveled to Africa, Paris, Belgium, Bahamas, Cozemel, Cancun, Honduras and Belize--but most of all I just love vacationing at our cabin in Wisconsin!

7. I'm totally in love with my dog, Snickers--and he's totally in love with me!

8. I HATE to read!

Mills Family said...

thanks Parian.....just so you know as wild as I am I have NEVER thrown even ONE egg at someone's home! Just so everyone knows one of the best things Parian ever organized is me!

casey....maybe you should tell mom everyone is waiting for her 8 things!
