Okay, I guess I can't put this off any longer. :)

I've been tagged by a number of people for the Six Random Things meme, most recently authors Kay Sexton (after knowing her for four or five years, I just found out her real name isn't Kay. Wow.) and Linda Gerber (who used to work for the US Senate!)

Commence with Six Random Things About Me:

1. My favorite thing for breakfast is last night's leftovers. This morning I had half a sandwich with cold chicken breast, tomato and avocado. Yum!

2. I'm ambidextrous. I play most sports right-handed, unless I see an advantage going lefty or switching back and forth to confuse the competition, but I always sign books left handed (my left-handed signature is prettier -- or at least legible).

3. I have an extra vertebra and an extra set of ribs.

4. I do not have a favorite color. When people ask me, "what's your favorite color?" I am baffled. It's like deciding on what to have for dinner at a restaurant. It depends on the day and the mood.

5. I spent three summers as a teenager picking blueberries endlessly. My hands were blue. I dreamed about blueberries. I now hate blueberries and will never ever eat a blueberry willingly again.

6. When I was a kid, I had an awesome recurring dream -- I dreamed that our garage had turned into an amazing candy store. It was so real, in the morning I'd go check to see if it had really happened. The store looked much like the Fabiano's Holland Peanut Store on 8th Street in Holland, Michigan where I grew up -- the store is still there today and every time I'm in town, I go say hi to the Fabiano family.

LOL! I thought I was getting away from being tagged but it appears not. So I'll edit my 'scheduled' blog post to post it.

It's up now. You'll have to slog through a long post to get to it Lisa.

*hiding behind large object and calling out from a safe distance*

Thanks, Lisa. You're a good sport.

Jolene said...

Alright, you! I see what you did there. Sneaky way to get me to write more than a three-word update, uh huh. :)

I made you a blueberry pie.

Blueberries! We lived near a blueberry field (orchard??) in Oregon, and picked our own once. Yes, I don't think I'd like to do it more than once...
