Pieces of eight




I was tagged by Momma A ,who has a cool blog,with this meme. And ya I had to wikipedia it too-it didn't help

Rules: Each person posts the rules before their list, then they list 8 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 to come read the post, so they know what they have to do.

My eight things:

1. Today is my (Monday 11th) birthday-so I decided there was nothing wrong with drinking beer, starting at noon yesterday, to celebrate my last day being 34.

2. My first job, at 18, was a dance instructor for Arthur Murray's in Las Vegas. I made almost no money-but met my husband there. My boss, Mr. Darrough, used to have to explain to new students that I did stick fighting, in my spare time, because I sometimes had black eyes and beat up knuckles.

3. I grew up Mormon. But was always an outsider-couldn't get into the group mentality thing. On a good day; I'm now an agnostic; who believes ghosts and mind readers and all sorts of spiritual oddities are real-on bad day, I think we'll all just turn to dirt.

4. I am a certified Glock armorer (or was anyway). I attended their class while at Gunsite. However, I went through the school so many years ago that I can barley remember how to put my gun back together after cleaning it.

5. I'm a Donnie Darko-director's cut fanatic. I've seen it a gazillion times and every time I see it; I find a whole new level of symbolism that I hadn't noticed before.

6. I am a coffee addict. I'm partial to the French press, but my daughter likes to watch coffee brewing so I've ordered a stove top vacuum pot. It will still taste (sort of) like it was made by a French press and she can watch it brew.

7. I do everything one handed because I am used to always holding a baby. I no longer know how to type with two hands. When I try, I type the letters all out of order.

8. I'm also jumping on the tattoo thing. Sometime this year-maybe something Celtic on my lower back.

I tag lakeline, birdwatcher, Amy, one sixteenth, valians, Jill, Becky C, whimsigal

Thanks for participating! My husband is going to be getting that certification from Glock this summer. He is a gun dealer, so he's pretty excited =)
