thanks su for tagging me- i would love to talk about myself for awhile. six random things about me:
*i am left handed. which according to an article luke just read in the news paper means that "in utero my brain developed more freely" than all of you non-south-paws, which has allowed my "brain's organization to stray more from the standard design, and is therefore less predictable." and it also means that i will probably die 7 years earlier than if i was right handed, which still leaves me alone for a year after luke passes.
*one summer in jr lifeguards me and my best buddy lauren were obsessed with wearing board shorts. we wore them day in and day out, which made for the worst/best tan lines on our legs that we were really proud of, i have some really funny pictures of our legs that summer.
*i have webbed toes. i like them, and think they are really cute. apparently, some people think they are nasty. example: a few years ago, luke entered a picture i had taken of my feet when we were on our honeymoon in costa rica to an ugliest feet contest in transworld surf magazine. it won and we got six pairs of cobian sandals. (someday if our stuff ever gets here i will post that picture. here is a brief description: light pink nail polish, feet covered in black sand with multiple open cuts and a few nasty scars showing, so pretty)
*i hate waste- even wrote an 11th commandment: "thou shalt not waste." if i gain weight in the next few years it is because i eat all of the leftovers from my kids plates. in addition to not liking to waste food i don't like to waste electricity, water, and paper. (but for some reason i have no problem wasting hours on the stupid computer blogging)
*i love salt water. i think it might have seeped into my blood. and i love the crusty salty feeling when you put a shirt on after you leave the beach and get all itchy. which means, i don't shower often these days.
*hair totally grosses me out. when attached to someones head it is great, beautiful, and pretty. but for some reason as soon as it is no longer attached to a head it becomes nasty, even if it is my own. i also totally hate body hair, i wish the only hair that was on my body was the hair on my head (which included eyebrows, cause i would look silly without them).
wow, that ended up being quite long. apparently i like to talk about myself. so now i tag six people: helium, erika pattee, amy b, jess/jaron, facers, and nancy.
