Six Random things

Thanks Myra for the nod. Curious. I am totally random. So forget 6, I could go on all day!
1. Cut me off in traffic? No problem. Run a red light? No problem. BUT FORGET TO SIGNAL AND I WILL TAKE A CONTRACT OUT ON YOU. yeah, no signals, my pet peeve.

2. I have a niece who is allergic to anything odd numbered. When she's in my car, it has to be on even numbers. When she pushes a button, it has to be even numbered times. She's 26 and there's no hope for her, but I love her. Except for the button-pushing...

3. I evilly trained my children to give good footrubs. When they were about 3 or 4 and we lived in Spain, I made it a competition. "Oh Son, you are the best footrubber in the world. Oooh. Nooo, wait, I think it's Daughter. yes Daughter now you are the best!' I did that all the time to get them to rub my feet for more than 2 seconds. Now my Son truly is the world's best footrubber (daughter figured out the scheme...darn.)

4. I fall asleep at my computer at least once a week. I just did it now. And now I'm awake. Clearly time to go to bed.

5. I have been getting hot flashes since I was 39 and my sisters tell me they will last until I am 50 and I therefore hate my genes. Hate hate hate.

6. I collect band and conference badges. I have them hanging on my wall in my office. I don't just keep mine, I approach random conference goers and ask them for theirs, too. I get them from "celebrities" who attend the conference, band leaders who perform, as well as random people.

Katy said...

Cool - now I have to figure out how to put the link "under" a word instead of spelling the url out...

Too much work for my brain tonight, I'll get on it tomorrow! ;)

Your random things are a riot! Why didn't I think of the footrub thing? Do you think it's too late to teach this to a 6 yo, or would he be on to me. :)

And you lived in Spain? Love to hear about that...

Lisa Milton said...

Katydidnot random and crazy?

Say it isn't so.

Alice said...

Hey..I'll be the first to admit that I like a few older Tom Cruise movies. Now..he's just a complete nut job.

You are the smartest person in the world with the footrub thing. I try to get my kid's to scratch my back, but the suck pretty much.

Someone else also tagged me with this meme, so I may need to combine and come up with this soon.

Later babe - NOW GO TO YOUR BED AND SLEEP!

Katy said...

I followed almost all of the rules - my post is up but I only tagged four people.

Will the flogging commence immediately? ;-)

Check out my blog if you want my hot flash story!

You will love this. I keep a posterboard in my car with "Signal" written on it in Sharpie. There's one intersection I have to navigate on a regular basis that is a total bear. If the person coming down the hill doesn't signal you have lost a valuable opportunity to make your move. I'm hoping I'm training them, but so far I think I'm just embarrasing my kids.

Cheri @ Blog This Mom! said...

The hot flashes will stop at 47. No worries there.

dkuroiwa said...

So I read this a day or two ago and swear to you, I commented!! What the frick happened to my incredibly witty comment?!?!
Okay...so random...I can do random...actually have been thinking about what to put and I might be ready to post...give me a day...thanks, babe!

And hot flashes? Can't sleep? that's pretty much normal around here!! and if cheri says they stop at 47...whoohoo...I'm almost done!! :-D
