I don't usually fill these things out - but today feels like a good day to do one. A great big thanks to
for the nomination! Now go check her out, she's fab, I promise!
It's time for the
which apparently means that now it's my turn to share 7 random things about myself. Ok, I'll take a stab at it:
1) I'm afraid of clowns. Like "can't go to the circus because it is terrifying" kind of afraid. I blame a childhood exposure to Pagliacci, but whatever...
2) I eat really weird things. Like peanut butter on watermelon. Or fudgesicles with dill pickles. And I like brussel sprouts.
3) Speaking of eating - I can't eat gluten. I don't really mind. It keeps me out of the cookie aisle. Now if only I didn't know how to bake...
4) I hate sports. Well, ok, I hate sports on tv. I have zero team spirit. I don't mind playing sports (though I'm no good) - I just don't like rivalry.
5) I have never dyed my hair. And I probably never will. I love my natural color and I'm a little scared of all the chemicals.
6) I am a total control-freak when it comes to making crafts with my kids. For heaven's sake, just give them the paint and the glue and who-cares-if-it-ends-up-looking-like-a-bunny-or-not! Apparently, I do. Some day I will learn to let go.
7) I have a really strong sense of smell. Sometimes my opinion of someone is way too heavily influenced by whether or not I like their cologne/perfume. I also hate going into public schools because I can't stand the smell. I don't like the smell of baking chicken. But I love the smell of a wood-fire on a cold day.
