I was tagged by our friend Tara in their blog (http://livesayhaiti.blogspot.com -link on the side) to tell everyone 5 things they don’t know about me, but didn’t know about it until we got over there for burgers this afternoon, which was kind of funny because usually the first thing I do in the morning after doctoring my coffee and checking my email is to read their blog. It’s this thing we have going on. Tara and I blog-stalk each other so that we can keep up to date on the goings on of each others lives. You would think that we would see each other more often because we only live about 45 minutes apart (that’s in Chris time), but in Haiti everything happens at a m-u-c-h-s-l-o-w-e-r-p-a-c-e, and we’ve gone for months without a visit. I learned today that random picture postings of Chris tend to catch Troy’s attention so maybe more of those will have to go up. Chris doesn’t read my blog so pretty much I could do anything I wanted and he wouldn’t know for the next, well, maybe year or so.
Okay, moving on…my 5 things:
- Three of my front teeth are only half real thanks to a silly Tarzan rope accident. I would like to thank the lovely people at Dr. Laidlaw’s office for providing me with such a lovely smile :)
- My second toes are longer than my big toes. I’ve read that a study was done and they found this was a sign of higher intelligence. My brother insists that they’re mutated.
- I have a hard time being in a room full of people I don’t know and generally feel quite uncomfortable and have a lack of words. I can sometimes pull off the gift of shmooze but it takes a while to get there. I would rather hang out with a few people at a time.
- I can flare my nostrils.
- I hardly ever polished my toenails before I moved to Haiti. Now they’re polished all the time so that I don’t feel like a complete grub all the time. Actually, come to think of it, being here makes me want to be more girlie I think.
I tag Mum R, Steph Geiger, Liz R, Katy J (only 12 days!!), and Todd C if he’s reading. You can leave your 5 in the Comment section. Anyone else can play along too!
