six things

I was finally tagged! Thanks, Laura, for making me one of the cool kids.

So here's six things about me you may not know:

1. When I am walking to my car in a parking lot, I have this thing where I have to count my steps. For instance, last night, it was 231 steps from the church back door to my car. I have gotten better about this, but it used to be a real problem.

2. I have to have white noise when I sleep. The only thing is that I hear things in the white noise, like Adler crying or a woman laughing (creepy, right?) which sometimes makes it difficult to sleep. So I have to turn it off to fall asleep and then when I wake up later in the night, I have to turn it back on to fall back asleep. Vicious cycle.

3. I don't like other people's dogs.

4. I have been, well, quite frankly, obsessed with those Amish fiction books. I mean, its ridiculous how many books about Amish people are out there, and how many of them I have read. The thing is, they all have basically the same plot. Amish person has a gift not "sanctioned" by the Ordnug, such as for playing an instrument; Amish person gets shunned; Amish person falls in love and marries "Englisher" and turns Mennonite. I don't know why I am so fascinated but I am!

5. I am 29 years old and I love Fun Dip. Its fun.

6. I have always been jealous of my cousin Laura because when she graduated kindergarden, she got to have a ceremony and a cap and gown. At my kindergarden, we didn't do anything. That was the first time I remember ever being jealous and truly heart-broken and it still stings.

Okay, Here are the rules, Sistas:
1. Link to the person who tagged you
2. Post the rules to your blog
3. Write 6 random things about myself
4. Tag 6 people at the end of your post and link to them
5. Let each person you have tagged know by leaving a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is posted.

Um, I don't have 6 people that haven't already done these things a million times, so I just going to tag Melissa, Laura, and Brittany. But if you want to play, consider yourself tagged! Sorry, I know I am ruining the game. No wonder no one ever tagged me before.

I count my steps too. My mom says that's a trait of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder--which I have a smidge of..okay, a lot of!

lol... when I'm walking from my bus stop to my office in the mornings, I go up these two HUGE flights of stairs behind the museum... and the only way I can get to the top without being worn out is to count steps... 1, 2, 3, 4... 1, 2, 3, 4... over and over... that way it doesn't seem like so many because it's never more than four steps...

Most women, when they sit with their legs crossed, kick their foot out just a little. I am actually spelling my name with mine. In cursive. It ain't easy.

Since we're confessing things.

prehensile toes are a good thing.

Just saying...
