Ganeida has asked me to do this 8 new things about me meme. Here are the rules. In the 8 facts about yourself, you share 8 things that your readers don’t know about you. Then at the end you tag at least 8 other bloggers to keep the fun going.

(I guess I'm officially a blogger now!)
One of my regular readers is my mother, and I think she knows more about me than she wants to, but I'll try to come up with something not readily apparent to the world at large.

1. I was born in Tokyo, Japan.

2. I manipulated schedules in order to graduate at 17 and marry at 18, just as I'd always planned.

3. I once bullied a DPS agent into giving me a driver's license without having my social security number.

4. I remember names better than faces.

5. I used to want to be a hermit when I grew up. (in between wanting to get married at 18, :-D )

6. I'm pushy and abrasive in print and over the phone, but in person I tend to nod and smile.

7. The hardest thing for me to bake is chocolate chip cookies.

8. I'm more sensitive to cold when I am pregnant.

(and a bonus 9 - it took me over 30 minutes to come up with this list!)

I only read a few blogs, but I've tagged:
Dorcas, Dawn, and Wil.

THAT took another 45 minutes! I've got clothes to hang up, and haven't done our weekend yet. Thanks a lot, Ganeida! :-D


Dawn said...

Loved numbers 3 and 5 :-)

Thanks for tagging me but I don't really do those things. :-)

Enjoy your day!

Hugs from Deutschland,

No problem, Dawn. I only read 4 or 5 blogs, and most of those had already done a thing.
Be blessed.

I knew I knew you for a reason. You're a good sport. Tokoyo,huh? Do you remember much about it? I shoulda had Ditz e~mailing you while we were doing Japan. Careful what you wish for: I used to wish I lived on an island, & hey, guess what?!:D

I should have included that I moved to Oklahoma when I was 9 months. But my parents have a lot of memorabilia.
