Jamie tagged me to tell you seven random things about myself. This was actually harder than I thought. I had to think on it for a few days and I am still not sure that I came up with seven things that you will actually find interesting.

I should remind you that these are random things about me, not necessarily interesting things.

1. I eat raw spaghetti noodles when I am stressed or nervous. I love the way they feel in my teeth. I even have my boys enjoying it. Brandon thinks we are all crazy, but it really does calm my nerves.

2. I have always wanted to be certified to teach some fun fitness class. During several phases of my life I have checked into the certification process and never followed through on it. I am seriously thinking of going to the training to teach Zumba in April. Have any of you been to a class of Zumba? It looks like such fun and there is nothing like that offered around here.

3. I don't blow my nose. I mean, I will go to great lengths to avoid doing it. It just grosses me out. I can't stand to hear or see other people do it either. Not only is that random, it's weird. I can admit that!

4. I got my degree in Marketing, but I always dreamed of being a lawyer. I always thought it would be so cool to be some hard nosed attorney in the body of a petite female. I really got the fever again after being on the jury of a child molestion case with a female prosecuting attorney . It was so awesome to watch her chew him up on the stand. And she was so feminine and cute about it...it shocked us all (especially Mr. Molester).

5. I have the best memory of anyone I know. I can remember conversations, what someone was wearing, where I was standing, very detailed information of things that happened years ago. I guess it's my long term memory that is good because I can't remember what I ate for lunch yesterday, but I can recall vividly events from when I was a child.

6. I am a weirdo when it comes to smells. I have an overly sensitive sniffer and I get grossed out really easily by smells. On the other hand, I love pleasant smelling things and will breathe all of it in that I can. I smell scents all the time that remind me (see #5) of events or people in my life.

7. I can shoot skeet. If my dad is reading this (not a chance) he is totally laughing out loud. So maybe in the matter of keeping this blog 100% honest, I should say that I took lessons when I was in high school (not on my own willingness to participate, but on my dad's urging that men are looking for well-rounded wives!!!) I, at least, know the rules and how to load, hold and shoot a gun. AND remarkably enough I have actually hit a few targets in my time. My dad and I have discussed shooting again sometime soon. I think we are both avoiding this event because the amount of frustration that we will each feel toward one another will be remarkable! I will definitely share some pics of this occurence shall it ever happen.

Hope you enjoyed! I AM pretty random, I guess!

Chantel, Kelli, Raegan...want to play??

I went to to a zumba class recently and LOVED it! I'm going back very soon. That's funny that you eat raw noodles.

Kthed said...

I've been tagged before back in August with this, but thinking about doing it again with some new facts! :)

Chantel said...

Yes, fun! I will play tomorrow.

It is hard to think up random things...I too have been known to eat raw spagetti, not to relieve stress, just to eat it. Is that weird?

I'm glad you mentioned #3 to me when I first got to your house because for some reason I started having allergy problems when I got to TX. I did my best to avoid sniffling and blowing my nose while you were close by! :) (This is really useless info, but I never have allergy problems, but something in MP and in Tyler really messed with me...I had to take Benedryl last night. Wonder what is in the air there that's not in AR??)

I think you'd make a GREAT lawyer. I'd be scared of you if I was a criminal!
