Get That Fruity Pebble on the Phone

Hmmm. I have been tagged by Alli (yes, she's running and hiding from me at this very moment, but I will find her. Rest assured). Though, not to shirk my duties as a dutiful blogger - here are the 7 things one may not know about me:
  1. I am a major history buff. I am especially enamoured by the Medieval era (AKA: Western Civilization). I am not a lover, as is well known, of the Military Channel that the husband insists (to my great aches & pains) on watching (uh. bor-ring), but every so often there's a good bit of yesteryear . . . *shhhhh. don't tell him*
  2. I am infatuated with zombies, aliens and ghosts. They may or may not exist, but they make for damn good movies or TV! Have I mentioned, "Sean of the Dead" recently? Right. It's a fantastic movie! Also, I secretly watch "The Ghost Whisperer" and "Most Haunted" every Friday night. If I have to go out during those times I am covertly depressed. Yes, I have TIVO - it doesn't matter, I'm still mournful.
  3. Scuba diving in the ocean is one of my favorite things. If I could live underwater I would not think twice. And if any of you know what it is like to breath while being 60 to 80-feet underwater watching whole other eco-worlds of fishes, turtles, shrimps, sharks, eels, lobsters, squids and/or corals, you know what I mean. That is my pursuit of happiness.
  4. I went sky-diving once. I wasn't frightened . . . . . . . . . until I hit the ground and realized what I had just done. My dad didn't talk to me for 3-days afterwards. I will never do that again. It was a one time deal.
  5. I make friends easier with men. They are much more approachable, non-judgemental, easy going and not as snarky as the ladies. I do believe that men and women can be friends - you have to have the same goals in the relationship to have it work though. I also think this is why I highly value the little group of girlfriends I have. They are important to me because I have so few.
  6. Since I was 4-years-old, I've wanted to be a veterinarian. I regret that I never tried.
  7. I know most of the lines to "The 40-Year-Old-Virgin". I first saw that with my parents. When it was over, I looked at my little sister as well as her husband and asked, "did I just see porn with my parents?!"
There's more, but you will have to wait until I've been tagged once more.

It's funny how much you & I have in common. ;)

I like this word verification:

Didn't know
Kind of suspected
Didn't know. Or did I? Maybe I did.
Didn't know. You could still do that.
Didn't know. But am not surprised.

Alli: This is why we are friends.

Ian: 2 out of 7 ain't bad! I suppose you can kinda count the "kind of suspected" as 3 out of 7, but that's still out for the jury to decide. I don't think I ever mentioned my sky diving to you previously. I'm glad I did it, but will absolutely keep my feet on the ground or safely in the airplane.

Ian said...

Yeah, maybe you didn't. It sounds familiar though, so you may have mentioned it at some point. I'm claiming it and I'm also claiming the 7th one, because I knew the 40YO Virgin story, so I'm awarding myself 5 out of 7. Which is totally awesome.
