About Time

I am so late on this tag. (Sorry, Kambria!) I was trying to do the Week in the Life thing last week and dropped off by Saturday. Thanks everyone for the kind words and comments. I'm still not feeling well, but am praying that the chiropractor visit yesterday will help. Right now, it is just making me sore. Anyway, on to the seven random things about myself...

1.} I don't do background music. Never have. For some reason, it sends me into deep dark depression. I have no idea why. When I was younger, I famously once played my radio, the record player, and a cassette tape all at once so that I would have background noise without being able to focus on a specific song. Now, around the house and in the car we often have children's CDs playing, but I would choose silence above the radio or a CD for myself. When I need company (like when the kids are gone), I much prefer a funny movie playing in the background.

2.} I have a constant, never-ending internal conversation running in my head which I am unable to turn off. This is terrific when I'm planning something or imagining something fun, and not so terrific when I'm stressing over something.

3.} I hate the feeling of wooden spoons. They give me the shivers. Do you know those little individual servings of icecream that come with the wooden spoons? Those are the worst! And I never taste-test cooking from a wooden spoon!!

4.} I think Wuthering Heights is one of the most awful books I've ever read.

5.} I get embarassed very, very easily. I like to be a wall-flower.

6.} I never went to a high school dance or prom.

7.} I had a boyfriend in high school (for a few months, anyway) that was probably the loudest, most obnoxious, least inhibited, craziest guy in the school. I'm pretty sure the only person he had *ever* been intimidated by was my dad.

I am tagging Mrs. Q at Five in the Potter's Hand, Aja at The Shoup Story, Sandy Toes at Shell in Your Pocket, Beth at Pages of Our Life, Lora at My Blessed Life, Kiley at Always Come Home, and Em at Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit... (Feel free to skip the tag if you aren't interested!)

My skin is all shivery after reading about your wooden spoons! And it keeps going all goosebumpy (in an unpleasant way) each time I think about it. Eeeeeeeek. Stop it!

I'll play along!! I'm in such deap despair over the International Market news that I needed a good writing prompt today.

I need to cry in my coffee first...

So funny about the wooden spoon...I agree about the spoons that come with the ice cream...they can cause the shivers!

I can relate to the "internal talking". When I get excited about something new my brain will not shut off at night! It is just aweful.

I am SO with you on the wooden spoons!Even thinking about that gives me the shivers!

My inner voices are telling your inner voices to come check me out - assingment done!

This telepathy thing is so cool.

Hope you are feeling better. I loved the Week in the Life project. Still giggling at Leif covered in yogurt (or ice cream?). He is hilarious!

I completely agree about Wuthering Heights. It took me ten to figure out what the idea of the book was. I also thought that there was something wrong with me that I didn't like it considering it is a "classic." I hope that you feel better.

Kiley said...

Thanks for tagging me! I did it right away and it was fun!

Kindred spirits on so many levels... (1-4), i love learning little details about people this way (even though meme's as a general rule make me cringe).

Alice said...

so right about the wooden spoon thing. They are not allowed in my kitchen!!! And i thought i was the only one grateful when Ben and Jerry's started using plastic spoons for taste testing in their ice cream shops!

Thanks for the tag Heidi. I'm going to have to put that off for a little bit. We're still working the bugs out of homeschooling...lol!

Jessie said...

Wooden spoons...I literally have goosebumps!

Heidi - I haven't been around much lately (I basically have just been posting for my family and running off to feed a hungry mouth or mind...), but I just had to let you know that I stumbled across some music that made me think of you for some reason: Songs for Saplings (songsforsaplings.com) is a family that makes charming recordings of scripture and catechism for children. You can listen to clips of one CD on iTunes; the others on their web site. For what it's worth...
