I think it was about a year ago when Alana tagged me. I might take forever about it, but I don't forget, so here is my list:
12 Things About Me:
1) Cottage Cheese gives me the willies. I find that it's lumpy albino appearance leaves me feeling vaguely violated and like I can't trust it. Especially when it is plopped unceremoniosly atop a lettuce leaf.
2) Being in the water is so calming that, if I could, I would live in the water and never, ever come out. (hence Claire's waterbirth) If I had it my way I would have waterbirths, waterconceptions, waterteethcleanings and watersleep.
3) I learned to drive on a stick shift because my brothers told me I couldn't. The words, "it is virtually impossible to pass a driving test in a stick-shift in Illinois" sounded like a challenge to me.
4) I am not athletically gifted, but that doesn't stop me from trying.
5) Sitting still for too long feels like torture.
6) I LOVE to have my hair brushed.
7) I am a vegetarian, except for chicken. Well, and fish.....and steak, I LOVE STEAK!
8) In a tragic genetic mishap I was born without a fashion sense.
9) No amount of dance classes will ever be sufficient to cure me of my CKS (Chronic Klutz Syndrome). My hips and shoulders remain perpetually bruised from my frequent run-ins with doorframes.
10) I have a deep-seated loathing for belly buttons. Yours, mine and everybody else's. It is just a whole lotta' grossness in one puckered little valley.
Yuck. My dream guy is that dude on Kyle XY who is without naval. AAAAAhhh!!! I think I could love him forever!
11) I have written many a haiku about my hatred for the belly button. I realize that this is a continuation of Point Ten, but until I work through my Naval Issues with a therapist and puppets I just can't let it go.
12) I adore alliteration, love limericks and am positively perky about poetry.
