seven meme


Jennisa tagged me with this Seven Meme and I thought I'd play along. Thanks, Jennisa!


Here are the rules:

~Each player starts with seven random facts/habits about themselves.
~People who are tagged need to write on their own blog about their seven things, as well as these rules.
~You need to choose up to seven people to get tagged and list their names.

1. I am really terrible with directions.
So bad, in fact, that I often would get lost when I first started driving in my teeny, tiny hometown. Really pathetic, especially since my Dad was a navigator in the Navy...guess I didn't get any of those genes! I love the town I live in now because most of the main streets go East-West and North-South. This is good for a struggler like me.

2, 3 and 4. I have three major fears (excluding the type that are about losing a family member, suffering and such): First, I'm really afraid of rodents--even bunny rabbits, which are just disguised to be cute, but in their essence are actually terrible creatures. I once had a mouse run across my face while I was in Yellowstone. That did it...I was a goner from then on. Second, horses scare the poop out of me! I showed horses for years growing up and had some pretty scary accidents happen. I'm really not sure if I'll ever ride again because I have such anxiety. I would actually like to get a mini-horse to be my pet, but it will never happen because Joel thinks I'm crazy:)) And third, I'm quite afraid of large bodies of water. This is a problem because my husband's favorite place in the world is his family's lake cabin. Small rivers are okay sometimes, but big lakes and definitely the ocean, are not my idea of a good time. I don't like the idea that if you drop something (someone) down in the water, you will never see it again and could even go miles down. I even know how to swim! I don't know...maybe I should have never watched Lady In The Water. Scurry. However, I didn't let my fear of water stop me from swimming in the Mediterranean or while we were in the Bahamas...too amazing!

4. I met my husband in college during my freshmen year. He was a senior and never really even noticed me. I pursued him and kind of even stalked him...like I would show up in the biology department and didn't even have a science class--just to run into him! The funny part about this is that this isn't something I would usually do...I'm fairly reserved. Needless to say, he finally noticed the little freshmen girl who kept showing up...

5. I love coffee. I've talked about this before, but now I'm going to explain why I love it. I do love the taste and even the caffeine...but what I really love is the social aspect of a cup of coffee. I love going to a coffee shop to chat with a friend or casually inviting people over for a cup. I especially love having deep conversations with my family with the smell of good java brewing and mugs in hand. Mmmmm.....my kind of day. I actually asked Joel the other day if drinking coffee could be my favorite hobby....he explained that this doesn't qualify as a hobby. I disagree.

6. I'm an introvert, fairly reserved. I used to really hate this about myself, but now that I understand how I operate, I like to refer to myself as a "functional introvert"....meaning I like social situations, I just need time to recharge by myself.

7. I am almost always cold, even in the summer...well, except last summer when I was a really cranky, pregnant lady and our AC broke while it was in the hundreds. So, almost all of the time, I am cold. I use a down comforter on my bed all year long and wear my Columbia fleece jacket over my clothes on most days. I love summer, but really dislike summer clothing because I get so cold.

So if you are on my little list of fun sites, I think that YOU should do this fun meme!

I met my husband in college when I was a freshman and he was a senior, AND, I pursued him! I guess we have more in common than we think!

Ok, first of all, I LOVE the story of how you and Joel met! That is priceless! =) For being an introvert, that was an extremely extroverted move! And second of all, I, too, am always cold! It doesn't matter the season or location. More often than not, I am freezing. It drives everyone bonkers when I turn on the fireplace on a warm day. =)

Guess I can't even count!

I didn't even notice the # thing until you said something!
I'm glad someone else wears a fleece jacket almost everyday (even right now)! Philip makes fun of me.
Fun reading your list! I think Parkers first pet should be a cute little hamster. ; )

English or Western?

Oh and I think drinking coffee should be allowed as a hobby. Just thinking about the cozy atmosphere of a coffee shop and a hot cup of java puts me in a good mood.

I hear ya on the body of water thing. I wrote about that one too in my seven. :)
