Tagged: Seven Random Facts

Kischa tagged me for a meme, so here goes:

Seven Random Things about Me
  • I have bad feet: plantar fasciitis, which I supposedly inherited from my aunts, on my dad's side. I used to wear shoe inserts to help with the pain, but then I dicovered Crocs and now almost exclusively wear them. Crocs = no pain. Supposedly, doctors say they aren't good for PF, but then why do my feet feel good? I have twelve pairs of Crocs (different styles, not just different colors of the "Beach" style).

  • I once wrote a 10-page paper for a modern poetry course about poems that describe grasshoppers. Seriously. (the poets were William Carlos Williams and e. e. cummings)

  • One time when I was a baby I really did sleep in a drawer, just like that poor kid on The Simpsons.

  • I didn't change my last name when I married J because he and I have the same last name. No relation, we checked.

  • J and I honeymooned at Hedonism II in Jamaica.

  • Did anyone watch that show called Grease: You're the One that I Want! on NBC last year? Laura Osnes, who won the role of Sandy, is now my cousin-in-law. She married J's cousin right after she won, and we were at the wedding. It was beautiful, but crowded. You know how at weddings you can expect maybe 70% of those invited to actually show up? Well, if you've just won a reality show then 100% show up and there isn't room to dance.

  • I've never broken a bone (knock on wood).


  1. I love the fact that you actually have a link to "Hedonism II." I remember when you guys won that honeymoon trip- so appropriate for pep banders!

  2. I picked a fun day to check out your blog. It is so much fun to read random things about people.

    On another note...I hope to adopt some day it's encouraging to read about you and your experience.

    Checking out SITS blogs(and loving it)...feel free to stop by my blog to enter the 2 "gift-a-ways" that I'm having....
    Happy Sunday!!!

  3. That's so funny that you check to make sure you and J weren't related! My initials didn't change when we got married so that was good for me. but now people are trying to call me kMa which doesn't have the same ring to it as kMo. BTW, I'm totally using this comment to fufill my ICLW quota for the day.

  4. thanks for making me laugh this morning.
    you have a great sense of humour.

  5. The same last name, how convenient! It was such a pain in the butt changing my name.

  6. The same last name just shows ya'll were destined to be!

  7. That's awesome about the same last name! Changing your name is a pain...wish that it could be easier!

  8. I've never broken a bone either!!!! Great meme, love your answers.
    Enjoy your day,
    -D *ICLW*

  9. I love reading random facts about people. And how lucky for you to not have to go through the whole name-change thing.... it's a pain, trust me!



  10. You slept in a drawer? What in the world?! Thanks for stopping by the blog :)

  11. I've never broken a bone either!

  12. It's a fun meme - I think it would make a great ice breaker at a party LOL

    Evie is adorable what a blessing.

    We have an adopted son too (adopted at 13 months now 15yrs)
    Are they the real deal Crocs ?
    May He whose birth we celebrate , bless you and those you love today and always.

    Hope you have a very special day.

  13. nice to get to know you- your daughter is beautiful

  14. +Trish: yep, the real deal Crocs, different colors and styles :)

  15. I have not tried Crocs but I am in love with ECCO shoes (I broke my heal in high school). I recommend trying those as well.

    Here is to you never breaking a bone! I have broke three and none were fun.

  16. Wow, that's wild that you had the same last name. How odd and interesting.

    Merry Christmas...I'm visiting via SITS, where you're the commenter before me today :)

  17. great MEME. Those facts are completely random ,but I feel like I know you so much better now. Oh grasshoppers...

    BTW, what fabulous photos you have here. I hope you keep letting the "paparazzi lady" into your house. :)


  18. Love the new blog look! I too love my Crocs and was super psyched when an outlet opened in my town. I asked for the new nanook slipper type ones for Christmas *fingers crossed* Hope y'all have a fabulous Holiday!

  19. I finally broke down and bought a pair of "crocs." Only, I found out they weren't REALLY Crocs. No wonder I was disappointed!

    I put my daughter in a drawer to sleep once when we were away visiting family and their crib was broken. The Calm One joked about putting the drawer back into the dresser when she fell asleep. Our hosts were not amused. I got a good laugh out of it though.

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting earlier!


I love comments! If you ask a question, I'll probably reply in the comment thread, and I try to visit the blogs of everyone who comments.
