I'd love to know the weird and unknown things about you! I think we know each other just a little....so here are 10 things ya might not know about me...

Bruce said...

OK, this was interesting. Pigeon-toed AND ambidextrous. Wow.


Karen said...

yeah, that pigeon-toed thing was hard to confess to people who don't see me in the real....

BruceD said...

I'm a mess. I have no real skills or talents. And I hate circuses too!

PS - this is my third attempt at posting this comment. Blogger seems to be acting up again!

Karen said...

I'm not sure what I listed are skills and talents. I think I'm a freak!

Matt said...

This is interesting, but I'm not sure you'd want my full list -- probably couldn't keep it to just 10!!;-)

Milly, love your list!! My mom wouldn't put me in the corrective shoes...wish she had...my legs hurt!

Okay, since you insisted, here's a brief list of 10:

1. The day of my sixth birthday -- just before my party with all of my friends -- I watched "Julius Caesar" with my father on "Masterpiece Theater."
2. I would much rather sit at a classical organ concert than just about anywhere else.
3. I love Truman Capote's writing.
4. I've kept a journal since I was 11 years old (which makes, um, a lotta years).
5. I've always had a huge crush Greta Garbo.
6. Think that "Sunset Boulevard" can beat just about any movie put out today.
7. I've bought enough books that I think I can safely read between now and retirement - but keep buying more.
8. I think the Blue Ridge Mountains are the most peaceful place on earth.
9. I secretly hope that my two-year-old daughter will stop aging and stay two forever.
10. My gray hair is natural -- earned every bit of it myself.

Joe said...

1. Some humans are the only animals that I don't like.
2. I'm shy and very few people know.
3. I'm 6 feet tall and I wish I was taller.
4. I like to debate.
5. I'm adicted to Sudoku puzzles.
6. I hate arrogant and inconsiderate people.
7. Drivers who park in a handicap space when nobody in their car is handicapped are the most arrogant and inconsiderate people.
8. I have always wanted to be an artist (pencil only).
9. I would like to be skinny, again.
10. I love my 2-seater sports car and long to drive it at its full speed.

Karen said...

I love your lists! You are all weirdly, wonderfully, interesting!

Hope said...

Found you through Fish.

1. I drink dill pickle juice - all the women in my family do as does my daughter.
2. I am scared of the dark.
3. I miss having a child young enough to sit on my lap.
4. Driving solo on long trips is a holiday in itself for me.
5. If I lived alone I don't think I'd cook.
6. I homeschooled my kids for 15 years.
7. That was at least 5 years too long.
8. I have lived in 18 different homes.
9. I like to listen to my music much louder than my kids know. All those years of telling them to turn down their music or they'd end up deaf is going to come back and bite me in the butt.
10. I failed my driver's licence road test three times.
