Three Things

In honor of a beautifully sunny Friday I’ve decided today is a good day to play a little game. It’s called “3 Things You Didn’t Know About Me”. I’ll write it out on my blog and then you, the reader, can either respond in kind in the comments or on your own blog.

This is a little tough for me because I’m essentially an open book on this blog and you probably now know more about me than you even probably realize. So, here goes:

Three Things You Didn’t Know About Me:

  1. When I was little my favorite game to play with my brother was “Let’s Pretend”. One of the most frequent scenarios was that I was a wizard and Nick needed to buy a potion from me. This scenario stopped when my Dad realized that my potions were made out of his spices from the kitchen (which are pretty expensive). I believe my favorite one to use was Arrowroot. I still don’t know what it’s used for but even to this day it still seems intriguing and mysterious to me.
  2. When “Titanic” came out I was convinced that I was going to marry Leonardo DiCaprio. I even practiced writing out my signature with my first name and his last name. I never attempted to contact him, however, and surprisingly he never knocked on my door to whisk me away like I thought he would. When the marriage (obviously) never took place I decided that it was bad luck to write my name with someone else’s and never did it again. I never practiced signing my first name with Wes’ last name until an hour before our wedding when I knew he had signed the wedding license.
  3. When I’m flying on a plane I never look out the window on take-off. I have this silly little superstition that the plane can’t crash on take-off (which has always seemed to me the most dangerous part of a flight) if I’m not looking out the window. I’m not afraid of flying per se, I just see no reason to take foolish chances.

OK, beloved readers, it’s your turn. It’s Friday! Go crazy! Leave a comment! Tell me about your wonderful self!

  1. Um, excuse me…LEO WAS MINE!!!

    1. i love to eat pickles with vanilla ice cream sprinkled with peanut butter powder : ) and no I’m not pregnant : )
    2. if i could be anything in the world i would be a rally car driver
    3. I love watching informercials : )

  2. Well I can’t really think of three things, but I can tell you that my thought profile falls into the “visual mathematician” category which happens to be very fitting. I see the world in basic geometric figures and am creepily good with symettry and hanging pictures straight. My own Mother used to have me make sure the Christmas tree was straight.

  3. HeeHeeHee, I can see that I wasn’t the only one whom Jack Dawson swept off her feet ;)

    Kristin, I think you would make a phenomenal rally car driver. If you ever pursue that dream you know I’ll be on the sidelines drinking beer and screaming for you!

    Wes, I have no doubt your mother asked you to make sure the tree was straight because she still asks you to come over to make sure the pictures in her house are level. All we need to re-create the scenes from your childhood are some man-sized footie pajamas…Oh, what I wouldn’t give to see you in a pair of those!!!
