10 random things about me

I have been tagged by Diane at faith in community to share 10 random things about myself.  This could either scary or fun.  I will let you decide.  Anyway…here it goes (in no particular order):

(1) I played violin from 4th grade through high school.  I was definitely not God’s gift to the earth when it came to the violin.  By my senior year I moved all the way back to 2nd violin, second to last stand (at least I was better than three other people).

(2) My BIGGEST pet peeve is listening to people clip their finger/toe nails, but clipping mine does not bother me.

(3) I was a spoiled kid in high school.  From when I got my drivers license through graduation I drove 30 different cars (my dad is a car dealer) – and I never owned any of them.  Spoiled!

(4) I love drinking V8.  It is the only thing that endears me to my mother-in-law.

(5) I have never been overseas.  I came close when Connie and I were scheduled to go to the Holy Lands but then 9/11 happened and scraped those plans.

(6) I have never broken a bone in my body (knock on wood) and I still have my appendix and tonsils.

(7) My 32oz. nalgene water bottle rarely leaves my side (and going to bed without it means a night with no sleep).

(8) I am allergic to air.  O.K., maybe not air specifically, but I am allergic to almost anything that floats around in the air except for the Chinese fig tree (don’t ask me why they tested me for that).

(9) I love winter and cold weather — the more snow the better and the colder the better.  But…I do not like hockey, ice fishing or snowmobiling.  Actually I think hockey is pointless (no offense anyone), I am deathly afraid of walking on frozen bodies of water and even more afraid of riding on snowmobiles.

(10) I was baptized Catholic.  When told that I was going to be ordained, my grandmother (a Catholic) responded by saying, "Oh…that’s too bad" 🙂

Wow…I am one strange cookie.  Anyway, let’s see some randomness from the following (who I now tag): David at HERE I STAND, Pastor David at Postings from Prairie Hill, Joe at Freedom, and Chris at The Lutheran Zephyr

Have fun!

  1. To add to the nail clipping pet peeve: It drives me absolutely crazy when my mother-in-law clips her finger nails while we are sitting in a restaurant waiting for our food. How does one eat after that?

  2. When I say “baptized Catholic” that is the theology of my grandma. I am not sure if she thinks this now but it used to be if you were baptized in the Catholic church you were a Catholic for life. That’s why she thinks I should be a priest, but shes coming around.
