Tag!

Hey, my first tag. Thanks Gemma!

Here are 7 weird/intriguing (read: dreadfully boring) facts about me:

1. Up until very recently, I never knew about the “few seconds of silence” rule for popping popcorn in the microwave. Ha! No wonder popcorn was always a craps shoot for me.

2. I have never left the United States.

3. I used to collect world globes and National Geographic maps. I still have a few tiny globes and a few newer maps.

4. Despite being displaced by Hurricane Katrina, I still finished my Master’s Degree in 2 years.

5. I am sometimes paralyzed by the anxiety of Artificial Sweeteners, hormones, ย and food preservatives. I am *this* close to becoming vegan for health reasons.

6. At one time in my life I wanted to become a personal trainer. Ha!

7. When I was in high school, my Dad told me about the baby girl he and his first wife gave up for adoption in the late 1960s. He was over in Vietnam, and they were not married at the time, so they thought they were doing the right thing. To this day, I still have not met her. I also have 2 other sisters (his other two daughters by the same woman) who I have only seen once and have not spoken to since. I’m not sure if they know that our father passed away.

Hum. . . let’s see. . .ย  now that you’re bored to tears I’m going to have to slap a tag on someone.

I tag Jen. I hope no one else tagged her. It would figure that my first tag wouldn’t work out. *crossing fingers*

  1. What on Earth is the ‘few seconds silence’ rule when it comes to popcorn? I’m intrigued!

    I’m having a delayed reaction to your knee shots too by the way – ouch (accompanied by sharp intake of breath!) – painful!!

  2. You got me! ๐Ÿ™‚ See my blog for seven semi-useless facts about me! ๐Ÿ˜‰ And I thought the popcorn thing was TOO funny! It’s okay…until about a year ago, I didn’t realize that those concrete poles that you see near gas pumps are there to help you figure out how far to pull up/line up with the gas cap. Go figure! I’ve only been driving for how long?!

    Gemma, when popping microwave popcorn, you’re supposed to stand by the micro and wait until you hear the popping stop for about 3-4 seconds. At that point, your popcorn is ready without burning. If you leave it in, you’re basically playing Russian Roulette with your bag–it could come out good, or burned!

    Jen, I DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT THE CONCRETE POLES! This tag has been the most informative tag, ever! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Ah, I see!! I don’t make a lot of microwave popcorn – that’s my excuse for not knowing and I’m sticking to it!
