Seven Things

So seven things ya'll don't know about me.

1.  That secret desire to take part in a chain letter thing.

2.  I've traveled through or lived in 46 states.  (I grew up as an army brat.)

3.  I've been a vegetarian for 25 years....but I don't really like vegetables.

4.  I lost my first tooth while picking wild flowers in upstate NY.  (I was BITING them off because they were so stubborn.)

5.  I struggle with shyness unless I'm sitting behind my loom, at my spinning wheel or with a table full of my pottery.

6.  I have a fear of bridges...ESPECIALLY the Chesapeake Bay Bridge out of Annapolis.  In fact that one kind of cured me of freaking out over the smaller ones.


7.  I absolutely HATE any kind of confrontation.

NOW I can go back to stressing about the selling of this house, the mysterious oil tank, and all the pots I need to have available over the next several months!

See, I like reading these, I just don't want to have to think that hard right now, I can't find tax receipts I need :) My daughter has been a vegetarian since before she was born. As soon as I got pregnant meat started making me sick if I ate it! I think it was her inside me rejecting it!

These are all things I understand! Biting flowers, shyness and bridges....I eat meat but I love vegetables of any kind, the greener the better....
Thanks Anna!

Thanks you two. I almost mentioned my run in with real live gypsies when I was 9...but I think that story loses impact in the had to be there. ;)

Wow, I also have a fear of bridges... rather of drowning after plunging off a bridge, but hey, close enough right? I think this is an awesome blog post idea... I may have to steal it. I don't know that I have 7 things... maybe 3.

Interesting! Thanks for sharing! I am the opposite about bridges - I LOVE them! On the way home from JMF, if I choose the "avoid highways" option on my GPS, I go over about 5 different bridges. And the Tappan Zee up to Boston? INCREDIBLE! I love the Bay Bridge, too. Sorry, Anna!

I amy also borrow this from you - I seem to have a writer's block when it comes to my blog lately.
