Now you know...

I was tagged by Lalo to post six uninteresting things about myself, but in honor of Thursday 13, I'm upping the ante. Here we go.

1) I went to three different colleges and spent six years getting my undergrad.

2) When I was little and we did "what I want to be when I grow up" projects I was always an author.

3) My first car was a hatchback that was powder blue and had only AM radio. I paid for it myself.

4) I have always been good at math. I don't like it, but I can do it. I took AP Calculus in high school.

5) I have green eyes.

6) I have three brothers. No sisters.

7) My husband and I bought our first house when we were 22.

8) I have horrible fingernails. They always break, chip, split. They're gross.

9) I don't like to shop unless I have an item I'm going to specifically get. I'm not a "browser". Makes me nuts.

10) I don't have the patience to hold yard sales. I just give our old stuff to charity.

11) I learned to read when I was four.

12) I consider myself a big sports fan, but I just never cared for basketball.

13) I love Coke over crushed ice.

Because I'm choosing to follow the rules today, I'm tagging the following people:
Kristin @ Jilli Java and the Garden of Eden
Rebecca @ Ramblings by Reba
Gail @ Squared Off
Suzie @ Up The Hill Backwards
Marni @ Marni's Organized Mess and last but certainly not least
Tammy @ My Life

If you don't play along you will get no sunshine or rainbows for the next 3,042 years and some child with a hang nail in Idaho won't get the treatment they so desperately need.

I kid.

Okey dokey...I'll do it. Do I have to tag someone too?? After reading your post, it occured to me that you and I have a lot in common.

we're awful fingernail twins! hahahaha i have terrible fingernails too and i don't have the patience to figure out why.
oh and i'm the same way with yard sales. i've given up twice this year and donated it all. it's just easier (and nicer!)

You me and christie are fingernail triplets!

I don't like to just browse either. If I'm shopping I'm buying. And the yardsale thing - I too just donate.

I don't have the patience for yard sales, either. Our church holds a huge one every year, so I just donate all our stuff to them. But, I have to be quick. My hubby just throws everything away.

Happy TT!

Oh, I love having yard sales. Always do it with a friend it makes it more fun. BTW I like Coke over crushed ice too.

Fun list! I don't get basketball, either, but I do love watching baseball. I love the whole buying a house at 22 thing. Very cool.

Happy TT!

Suzie said...

OH NO!!!! No just kidding I'd be happy to meme. Thanks for thinking of me.

Suzie said...

I mean I'll do it for the kid with the hang nail.

Marni Tiani Self said...

I do don't know how I read the one above AND below and missed this! Duh.

Oh well, I will be doing it, just give me a day or two. :)

Soz, forgot to say thanks for the tag, and as you know I've done it. I have awful nails too, and I am too lazy/busy to sell old unwanted stuff so I give it all away too.

So much in common - except maths.
