I've been tagged

My blogger friend Cindy from 12 Arrows has tagged me for 7 random facts about me. So here goes....Shnikees...what haven't I revealed on this blog already? You already know about my unfortunate brush with superglue in my eyeballs and how I failed a syphilis screening test. You know that I have an unsold house in a different time zone because I moved across the country with my husband to plant an unusual church. In fact some of you have already endured not 7 but 100 random things about me.

So let's see...what could I add to that already ridiculously random list?

My first crush was Peter Jennings. Followed by Kirk Cameron and a kid in my class named Uriah Wells. He had flaming red hair and freckles and I hope like mad that I never bump into him on Facebook. I went on to date 4 red-headed guys. Robb has a red beard, but dark blond hair. Now THAT is random.

I hate to drink milk out of a white Styrofoam cup. I just think it's nasty.

I've never taken an art class. Someday, I would love to.

I'm terrified of masks. I seriously hate them as much as snakes or rubber snakes. They freak me out. I think it's from that episode of Little House of the Prairie that
my mother didn't want me to watch.

My Sunday school teacher when I was 8 years old is still teaching Sunday school. She is a fascinating and forceful lady who has watched hundreds of kids over the years because she deeply believes in them. She was the first person I "met" in church and she gave me my first Bible...a red one. In all my years in churches since, I've never met anyone like her.

Over the years, people have thought that I am much more confident than I really am. There are a few people in my life that are truly great, but I am not one of them. I reveal things about myself on my blog because I think Christians learn from one another's struggles and other people just enjoy voyeurism in general, NOT because I think anything I do is great. Martha Stewart I am not (obviously). Erma Bombeck, maybe.

I used to pick out a theme color for my school supplies each year. In 9th grade it was yellow. That was not a good year.

And now, I crown:

Heidi, Donna, Hannah, Jess, Tammi, Ashley, and Amy. Rock on, girls. C'mon and make it really random... I need a laugh.

Love it! you make me smile! I have a friend who also color-coordinated her school supplies. LOL. . .thanks for being such a good sport. It's the deep things of life we need to learn from one another! LOL seriously, though, I love reading your blog and you are right its about learning and growing and in our sharing if we can touch someones life just a little bit in those areas we are on the right path.

Uriah Wells was actually David Curruso - he changed his name after he got into showbiz
