Seven Things in my (Her)story

It took a day or two for me to get to this, largely because I couldn't think of seven things about me that were both a) interesting and b) you didn't already know.

Here's the best I can do:

1) I knocked over a tombstone when I was about 6 or so in Cade's Cove in the Smoky Mountains National Park. It was a little itty bitty one, no more than calf high, even on me at the time. It has, however, become family lore and is recounted on many occasions. No one ever mentions my brother's shoe that took a long floating journey on the Cumberland River (same park, different year).

2) At one point in high school, I could sing the entire sound track of Les Miz, start to finish, no help from the CD. Well, I never actually gave the whole concert at once, but I did sing several scenes on my way to and from high school.

3) I only learned to bead this past December when I was inpatient in the psych unit. It kind of took off from there.

4) My fondness for coffee started at a young age. When I was in kindergarten, I used to swipe my mom's coffee flavored yogurt.

5) When I was in Scotland, my mold allergies flared up and I was taking such large doses of anti-histamines that I fell asleep at the table. In a pub. A very loud pub.

6) I still live in the same house as the day I was born. Not counting school and various other absences.

7) At 5' 5", I am the tallest female on either side of my family. I think the 'tall' thing was pretty much stacked against me from the get-go.

So that's it. That's my Seven. I tag Lindsey to go next!

Uh-oh. (Now I wonder - did I REALLY want to be tagged? LOL)

You may like to know, or not!, that they had me on a one-on-one when I was IP this last time. For four days. They would've sent me psych but there's not a unit for that in that particular hospital... huh.

I don't *feel* crazy or nuts-o. ED units - IP - just makes me that way, I think.

Anyway, thank you! Oh, and I got the necklace!!! WOOHOO!!! I will leave feedback forthwith!

Me too for #2! I used to belt out the whole thing. But only when I was On My Own.

I'm with you (and sarah, too!) on the les mis singing extravaganza. 'Stars' is perhaps my favorite song from the show.

About Me

I'm a science writer, a jewelry design artist, a bookworm, a complete geek, and mom to a wonderful kitty. I am also recovering from a decade-plus battle with anorexia nervosa. I believe that complete recovery is possible, and that the first step along that path is full nutrition.

Drop me a line!
