Seven (Slightly Odd) Things You May Not Know About Me!

Amy of Gluten Free Living, Melanie of The Gluti Girls…and a guy!, and Sophie of Flour Arrangements all tagged me for the same meme “Seven Things You May Not Know About Me”.  Hmmm, now that I think about it, Sophie’s meme was “Ten Things You May Not Know About Me”, but being as mathematically challenged as I am, we’ll round down to seven!

1) “Frisky” the pet gerbil came into my life when I was six years old.  Always the imaginative one, I tried to dress him up like the Hamburglar (you know, from McDonald’s).  Apparently I tied the Hamburglar cape too tightly and Frisky bit the living daylights out of me.  Frisky promptly went back to the pet store.

2) I ate a peanut butter sandwich EVERY DAY from kindergarten through twelfth grade.  I was not a very adventurous eater.  Well, except for #4.

3) I have naturally curly hair.  It is not a perm.  It is not a chia pet.  Nor will you find lost items you are looking for within my large hair.

4) I ate a Milk Bone dog biscuit when I was five just to see what it tasted like.  For the record, it was disgusting.

5) I have never lived “In The Valley”, but use the words “like, totally, and omigod” on a very regular basis.

6) I have been a “vegetarian” for 18 years.  Well, except for bacon.  I LOVE bacon so much I couldn’t give it up.  Therefore, bacon comes from the Bacon Tree in our house.

7)  I am a Reality TV Show junkie.  I’ve watched every season of The Real World, Rock of Love with Brett Michaels, and Real Housewives of Orange County/New York City/Atlanta.  I always take Purell bath and get my tetanus shot after viewing the wondrous nastiness!

So now I’m going to tag seven gluten free bloggers who are ridiculously fabulous.  Have you checked out their blogs?  You won’t be disappointed!

  1. Lol I love the comment about the hair. I have curly hair too :D. I also liked your vegetarian comment; my husband said he could give up all meat except for bacon–he calls it bacontarianism :P.

  2. I am so happy you wrote #7. I don’t know what is worse… being a reality TV junkie or downloading it and watching it online because you don’t have cable. Yes, I am that girl. 😉


  3. Oh peanut butter! If it weren’t for peanut butter, I seriously wouldn’t be alive today! Curly hair is awesome! I have red hair and it’s not really curly or straight. It blobs. In the very late 80’s and early 90’s I had very curly hair, but I had to pay to get it 🙂
