I’m It!

April tagged me to tell 7 things about myself that no one knows. Since my life is pretty much an open book, I doubt there are 7 things about me that are completely unknown to others. But, I’ll give it a go:

1. Both my parents were 5’2″, making me the amazon woman of my family!

2. I was a setter for my high school varsity volleyball team. That sounds more impressive than it was, and that is exactly why I am putting it on this list!

3. Mark and I went to Niagara Falls for our honeymoon. (Is that still a cliche? Does anyone else understand why I included this on my list?)

4. When I was 9, I rode to Niagara Falls from DuBois, PA, in the back of a pick-up truck with about 10 other 4th graders. Do you see a Niagara Falls theme emerging?

5. With the help of my mother, I replaced the broken back window in my 1960-something Ford Opal when I was 20. (I bet you never even heard of a Ford Opal!)

6. I met my husband in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, where I lived for 4 years.

7. I was thin for 18 months from 1991 to mid-1993. It was fleeting experience, but I will always cherish it.

Now I need to tag 7 others. Since April tagged most of the people I know with blogs, it will be a challenge. Here it goes:

Jandy (Be sure to check out her American Idol play-by-play each week. I don’t have to watch the show, I just read what Jandy has to say.)

Becky Becky doesn’t always post a lot, but she did just post this week. I am sure she can come up with something good.

Denise Frame Denise might be too serious of a writer to actually do this, but I thought I would give it a try. If she doesn’t do it, you should check out her site anyway. She is really an excellent writer.

Angie D. Angie is a funny mom whose friends with my brother-in-law’s family.

Angie B. Angie B. is a virtual friend with a great sense of humor. Her humor blog is well done and a lot of fun.

Ann B. Ann B. tells some great stories about her life with 5 males. God has a special place in His heart for women like her who exist in a swirling pool of testosterone!

Mark Well, I don’t have enough bloggers to choose from, so I have to tag my husband!

  1. Thanks for the tag, Jennifer–I enjoy these sorts of things. I’ll post my answers in a day or two over at my personal blog (http://bloggin-dazs.blogspot.com) which I started in March. (My humor blog is really more of a weekly humor column than a true blog).

    I’m impressed with your having been on a varsity volleyball team, let alone as a setter (not that I really know what that means). I’m awful at volleyball. Not many people have been laughed out of a low-key church picnic volleyball game, but I have. I couldn’t make a team if my life depended on it!

  2. Anything for you 🙂

    Lots of folks have supported me with my writing, but you were the first one to suggest I take my writing seriously, professionally, that I didn’t owe a favor.

    1st freelance piece is IN and I hear the check is in the mail. And I just got a telecommuting job overhauling a magazine blog– starting at the end of this month. I may be asking you for opinions and help, so I’d better write my seven things now!

  3. How fun! I’ll play. I’ve been struggling with creativity for the last few months, but I’ll give it a go! Hey, that could’ve been my #1! AIGH! Oh well.

    It might take me a few days to get my act together. Thanks for the tag, though! 🙂
