8 Random Things About Me

Kathy from kathy:iamwhoiam tagged me with this meme. I have never been one for the whole chain letter/email thing, but have never had my blog tagged before and thought it might be fun. And everyone loves to talk about themselves, right?

There are a few rules one must follow to play the game. When tagged, you must link to the person who tagged you. Then post the rules before your list, and list eight random things about yourself. At the end of the post, you must tag and link to eight other people. So here goes.

8 Random Things About Me:

1. I am an Engineer, but when I was little I always wanted to be a writer. Or a singer (but I can't sing).

2. I am a certified SCUBA Diver but get nervous and claustrophobic whenever I go diving, which is very rare indeed (I’ve been three times). Usually my husband must find another buddy to dive with him because I am a chicken.

3. I was the University of Missouri – Rolla (now known as Missouri University of Science and Technology) St. Patrick’s Day Queen of Love and Beauty in 1992.

4. When my husband and I first met, we disliked each other quite a bit. Two years later, we fell in love. Six years later, we got married. Three years later, we had our first child.

5. My feet are always cold. Even in the summer.

6. I crack myself up. My husband says I am the funniest person I know.

7. I am scared to be alone at night. If I am alone in the house, I have to sleep facing the bedroom door.

8. I am a real estate junkie. I regularly look at real estate listings and would spend my every Sunday touring open houses if I had the time or freedom to do so.

Listed below are the blogs I have chosen to tag with no expectations of a continuing thread. Please note that I did not choose these blogs at random. I read the blogs listed below everyday (maybe that will take some bite out of the authors’ annoyance). If you have been tagged already, or just really despise these little blog games, please forgive me and I will not be offended if you choose not to participate. If you are happy to share information about yourself, then I am happy to have tagged you and look forward to reading your random things. At the very least, I hope that listing these links on my blog will direct others to check out these blogs that I love to read.

Oh, shucks, Heather, you're too kind! I will happily meme away with the proviso that I don't think I know 8 interweb people well enough to tag!! (note to self: persuade real life friends to start blogs immediately. Second note to self: get more real life friends.)

What kind of engineer? I work for a Civil Engineering firm. I also like loth's comment: I need more real life friends too, lol!

I did this one already! (And thus I have TOTALLY EXHAUSTED my supply of random facts about myself.)
