Here are the rules for it:
1. Link to the person that tagged you (that's me) and post these rules on your blog before you answer.
2. Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself (on your blog, we all want to know them).
3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs. (But don't tag me back).
4. Let each person know that they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
So here my random and wierd facts -
1 - I am like a walking encyclopedia! I know tons of useless but impressive pieces of trivia! If someone in my family doesn't know how to spell a word, or where they heard a story, or need some info on local wildlife or geological features, they call me. If anyone of my friends ever makes it on to Millionaire, I will be the friend they call!
2 - Speaking of geological, my major in college was geology. In my younger days, my firmest desire was to work for the federal government, manning one of those fire towers in the forest, where I could while away my days reading books! I thought it was so romantic! But even though I am an accountant (long story) now, I still love my rocks! We went to the Grand Canyon, Zions and Bryce Canyon in 2006, and I was in heaven! Surrounded by all my rock formations!
3 - At one time in my life I could hang ten! For those of you not from California, that is surfing! I was born in Idaho, but my family moved to So. Cal. when I was a baby and I lived there for the first 13 years of my life. I grew up in Huntington Beach and practically lived on the beach. Later we moved back to Idaho and somehow I could never equate skiing with surfing! I am not much of a winter sport fan, I simply wait it out for spring, when I can plant things and go camping!
4 - I have never looked my age. Wonderful now, but it wasn't great when I was 19 and 21 and getting ID'ed even though I was legal. When I was 23 we went to a casino in Reno to play the slots. I went to buy a roll of nickels (I really don't like to gamble) and they asked for my ID! I had left it back at the hotel, never dreaming this would happen! My dad finally convinced them that I was really 23 and the mother of 3 kids! I do have fun surprising people now when I tell them my age and that I have 6 grandkids!
5 - I wanted to be a country singer! Really, I did! I was even in a local Wrangler Country Showdown once. My problem? I don't drink (being LDS afterall) and I don't like bars! That is pretty much the standard area to get discovered. I had a few chances along the way, but didn't want to take time away from my family, so I passed them up. But sometimes, when no one is around, I like to belt out a good song! I have settled for singing at family reunions, the local county fair and funerals!
6 - I am an insomniac, thanks to my oldest son, who never came home on time. I would stay up waiting for him. Now he is 28, and doesn't live with me, but I still can't sleep. I go to bed about 1-2 every morning and get up with my 15 yr old at 6:30! I try to catch 30 minutes in the afternoon, but I don't always make it!
7 - I am a Rachel Ray 30 minute meal addict! I love that show! My guilty pleasure is also Law and Order, SVU. I put my family to bed and watch it at 11:00 every night!
So there you go Aimslee! And since everyone I know that has a blog has already been tagged, I will pass on tagging anyone else!
