You only thought you knew me...

Earlier this week I posted about my new Texas Word Tangle car decal
that I got from Monogram Chick.
I'm totally in love with it and with Monogram Chick's products.

And, when I found out she tagged me on her blog, I decided to participate.
So, here we go.







7 Weird/Random Facts About Me:


1. I read really fast. I think it's because I grew up on a ranch without TV and spent a lot of time reading.

2. I peed in the ruins at Pompeii, (you know, the city completely covered by a volcano eruption in Italy), because we were on a tour and couldn't find a bathroom. That's probably illegal or defacing history or something like that. But, when you gotta go, you gotta go.

3. I was involved in the theater when I was a child. I was an orphan in Annie and Greta, the youngest Von Trapp child in The Sound of Music.

4. I saw my first Shakespeare play in England in a huge park. It was A Midsummer's Night Dream, and it was completely magical.

5. I received my first massage and snow skied for the first time, all in the same week, when my family visited Canyon Ranch in Massachusetts when I was about 14 or so.

6. I saved my mom's purse from a thief in Mexico City when I was around seven years old.

7. In 5th grade I won the school science fair for making fossils, and I was the second fastest runner in the school. That may have been me in my prime. It's been all downhill since then.


and now I'm tagging some new friends:


1. Marlene - Country Girl on Chesapeake Bay

2. Jen - Steenky Bee

3. Jennifer & Sandi - Minnesota and Texas

4. Carrie - Life in the Slow Lane

5. Gingela5 - My Dogumentary

Shame on you for peeing on sacred ground! LOL

How about a meme on the weirdest places you've had to pee?

Those are some impressive random facts... Good stuff.

Kat said...

Oh, those were good. My mind always draws a complete blank when I am asked to do a meme like this. I think I was tagged months ago to do a 6 quirk one. But I can't think of any. I don't have quirks. I have preferences :-)

And peeing at Pompeii? Well...one of the coolest things found at pompeii is grafitti. So, why not :-) Have you read Pompeii by Robert Harris? It's really short - and very fun.

Karen said...

I think I was the second slowest runner at school, when I was really young. I once won a race though. The only other person in the race was the slowest girl in the school.

I did get faster as got older though..

'Peeing in Pompeii' ... sounds like it could be the title of a travel book, or something...:-)

Justine said...

Oh geez, I don't know if I can do this one! I've had a very boring life compared to you. I haven't peed anywhere interesting even! Lemme think..

Kat said...

I love these comments. I thought that one of my interesting quirks could be that I can't ever think of any interesting quirks.

Kat said...

Oh, and have you gotten any questions about your car tag?

Susie said...

What a great tag and great to get to know you better. We did Sound of Music my senior year. It was so fun:-)
