Random Thoughts

Saija posted a fun meme and gave an open invite tag to anyone who wanted to post it. So, I've got nothing pressing to tell people...why not FIVE RANDOM THOUGHTS ABOUT ME?

1. I'm a strange duck...never do what others expect...don't fit into the cliche'. For example, I grew up a valley girl. You know, Californian, blonde hair, long nails, and says, "Oh my God!" way too much.

So, you'd expect me to be 'like' a complete flibbertojibbit with nothing in the noggin. Right? Well, I then became an artsy fartsy Art Major at San Jose State University. Now you'd expect me to be completely surreal, hippie, and snapping my fingers kind of person. Right?

But no, then I got married to my high school sweetheart. Now, you expect some serious person who is thinking about making a home and family. Right?

Wrong, then my husband and I joined the Army (well, he re-enlisted). Of course now you expect some butch take y'all down with an M16A1 rifle.

Right? No, I enlisted as a Graphics Documentation Specialist...artist for the Army. Okay, now you are thinking some snobby Graphic Artist who can hold a pencil as a weapon. Right? Naw, I was more of the Private Benjamin sort...my NCOIC (Sgt in charge) called me by my first name. So, now you are again thinking of the blonde valley girl turned soldier.

Well, sorta, but then I became a mom. But not the average mama. I got shipped off to Bosnia for a year while Dave played "Mr. Mom." So, are you thinking, callous fighting machine? No, I cried and cried.

Anyway, we later became houseparents. Aha, now you're thinking I'm selfless and patient. WRONG. My patience deteriorated quickly. Spent 4 years on the job.

Then I wrote a fantasy novel. Okay, she is just WEIRD! I'll give you that. But, I will hopefully be a weird published impatient fighting machine artsy-fartsy valley-Mom someday.



2. I love, adore, can't live without...BRUSSEL SPROUTS!

3. I like my feet.



4. I homeschool my kids...and always thought those kind of people were completely strange! Okay, so I'm right.

5. I think that Ho-ho's are the best dessert ever made.

I'd love to see some of you post this too but I won't tag anyone by name. Let me know if you will or have so I can come look ya over!

MIMI - what a great meme...

You're not strange just well rounded! At least that's I tell people about myself - LOL - though I usually get a strange look for that!

Alydyn said...

Brussel Sprouts! EYK you are weird..: )

Ugh my mom LOVES these things, but thankfully (for me) no one else including my dad likes them in our family. Poor mom has to do without them or only get them when we are out so they don't touch anyone elses plate..: )
