uh be tagged

Emmett in the yard

So I've been tagged by Clare's Sunflower Sky to name eight random facts about myself. Ok Clare, you sassy're on!

The Rules
: Each person posts the
rules before their list, and then they list eight things about themselves. At the end of the post, that person tags and links to 8 other people; then visits those people's sites and comments, letting them know that they have been tagged, and for them to come read your post so they will know what to do.

Eight random facts about me:
  • I am crazy about everything Italian. James and I have been to Italy twice (once for our honeymoon)...and I would go back every year if I could.
  • Probably related to the obsessive Italy favorite food is parmesan cheese. I eat it on everything...even chinese and mexican food. Any kind of bread is a close second.
  • You wouldn't know it now...ha!...but I was homecoming queen in high school. I look back at the pictures of what I wore in utter horror.
  • I love to swim and I can pretty much swim non stop forever...but I can't run a mile without being miserable. My most favorite activity though is hiking.
  • I don't like to admit this...but I love watching "All My Children". I Tivo it and sneak it in when I can.
  • My favorite flavor of ice cream is pistachio.
  • I don't like loud noises. I can't see a movie in a theater without wearing earplugs. My mom always calls me "tender ears" because of it.
  • I "erg" now. James rows for the Boulder Rowing we bought a rowing machine last year. I started rowing on it so I would be strong enough to carry Abby. Now I'm hooked and row four days a week to keep some upper body strength.
I'm tagging...

I don't like loud noises either. I have often been seen covering my ears. I love Italy too! I was there in the summer of '72, with the American Institute for Foreign Study. Happy Sunday Linda, from the whole Windy City Gang!

Hi Linda! Thanks for playing tag -- it is a fun thing to do, don't you think? I enjoyed doing mine. I also love everything Italian -- I could live there in a heartbeat. I think it's very cool that you were Homecoming Queen! And loud noises bother me too. Moose doesn't even like the sound of the television -- he walks out of the room. I hope you've had a nice weekend and it's so nice seeing pictures of Emmett!

These are a hoot, Linda! I can eat hunks of Parmesan also. Sometimes, I don't even bother to shred it - love it! xoxo Shari

Oh I'd love to see the homecoming queen pictures. We wore some pretty strange-looking clothing back then!

My son's favourite ice cream is pistachio too...

It's great that you are rowing - that isn't easy!
