Thirteen Things about Me!


I have wanted to do this for a few weeks now, and now I am finally getting around to doing it. So here goes.... Thirteen Things About Me!

1. As much as I outwardly show that I am confident, there is always that little person in me who second guesses EVERYthing.

2. I still seek my mother's advice, and listen to it.

3. I once hit a car ... and left the scene without reporting it. Hey ... it was icy, and I was in high school. Yeah... doesn't make it better, I know.

4. I knew I was going to have three kids.

5. I once was a local beauty queen.

6. I have the same disease that German Shepards get ... hip dysplasia.

7. I SOOOOOOOO would have married our German exchange student. Or had his children. Or something. You get the drift.

8. I hate Sex and the City and Seinfeld.

9. I don't know why I went to law school because I don't practice.

10. I want to be a high school teacher.

11. I would LOVE to live in London.

12. I would return to my high school and college years in a heartbeat.

13. Ben Kingsley told me to be quiet during a Shakespeare performance.

We were seeing MacBeth. I can't even remember what part it was at ... but let me tell you, I was BORED OUT OF MY SKULL!!!! Something about seeing Shakespeare in London, with real English accents...

I was whispering something (well, I thought I was whispering) to my friend next to me, and he looked straight at me and said "will you KINDLY be quiet. There are those of us who want to SEE this production." I will never forget the mortification... and I didn't even know it was him until he spoke right at me. I was SOOOOO embarassed.

I LOVE your blog design! Did you do it yourself? It's beautiful.

What a FABULOUS encounter with a celebrity. (NOT!) Bet you wanted to crawl under your seat - I know that's what I would have wanted to do. :)

You were admonished by Ben Kingsley? That cracks me up more than the Little House dream! Hahahhaha!

As for Sex & The City. I agree. I hate that show too. You're on your own with Seinfeld though...

Happy TT!

That's hilarious about Ben Kingsley. I loved it when he appeared on The Sopranos. It was so incongruous.
