Comments for Eight Facts About Me

Me, aged 2 monthsEight Facts About Me: 05/12/07

Breeni tagged me. I won't be tagging anyone else because I'm not sure who my regular audience is. Feel free dear reader to do this meme yourself. Let me know if you.

Fact #1: Like Breeni, I've been with my husband for half my life. It'll be a few more years until I'll have been married for more than half my life but I met my husband when I was 17.

Fact #2: I don't have any "exes". My mother was probably convinced I'd never date as I hadn't dated anyone in junior or senior high. I've dated exactly one person and I married him. I did have offers for dates from two other people in college but I turned them both down.

Fact #3: I'm left-handed but I only do a small number of things left-handed. I write, draw, paint, eat with a spoon and eat with chopsticks left-handed. Everything else I do right handed.

Fact #4: I've lived my entire life, save for two trips as an exchange student, in California.

Fact #5: I won a putting contest when I was in junior high. Most of the other competitors were adults. It was at the old General Dynamics park in Kearney Mesa that was torn down in 1990s to make room for a housing complex. It was a great little park. It's a shame at General Dynamics sold the property.

Fact #6: I lost my engagement ring today. It's somewhere in the house. It's really nothing much more than costume jewelry as we couldn't afford much in the way of a ring. We were just kids when we got engaged. Nonetheless, I'd love to find it. I need to get it resized. My fingers have gotten to large.

Fact #7: I spent 3 months living in Preston, Tasmania. Did you know that the Tasmanian accent sounds a lot like the Welsh accent? At least it does to me. The Welsh vowels are a little rounder but that's the only noticeable difference.

Fact #8: I don't use a blog engine for this site. Everything is done by hand, including the forms and the XML feed.

So, maybe I'm from Tasmania then?

You know — I have no idea what your voice sounds like. I've known you now for what — three years? And it's only been through email, LJ, BC and letter writing."

Trust me, you're better off this way :O)

And you as well. I'd scare you w/ my Valley Girl accent. LOL!"
