And now, from Marina the Texas Book Woman, I'm instructed to post seven random and/or weird facts about myself.
- When I was 15 I cut my hair all short and spiky and listened to the Dead Kennedies and the Sex Pistols.
- That was pretty much the extent of my rebellion. I never smoked, never got drunk, never cut school. I was probably the straightest-laced punk fan in the midwest.
- I started dating my husband when I was nearly 16 and he was just barely 18. He was a very nice young man. He still is, though the youngness is starting to be less apparent to outsiders, who rightly assume that he's nearing middle age.
- I was raised without any type of religion unless you count common sense and being open to all humankind. Now I go to a UU church. Common sense and being open to all humankind is still my religion, but I get to do it with more people. And sing.
- Some brilliant bloggers post so often that I end up skimming or skipping posts, no matter how I love the blog, even though it pains me to do so. For this reason, I do my best not to post more than once a day and to skip days here and there to give my faithful readers a chance to catch up. (No, really!)
- Neither of my kids has ever been to school, or asked to go, but my oldest is mildly considering high school in three years. Mostly because the high school is next to our nearest skate park.
- Whenever we have pie for dessert (which isn't terribly often) I let my kids eat pie for breakfast the next day. With whipped cream.
I'm supposed to tag 7 people but the tagging, it always makes me think of chain letters. I refuse to succumb to peer pressure. If you're willing to do this meme, let me know and I'll edit to tag you retroactively. If seven of you do it you'll make me look really good!
First tag: Green Dads (a.k.a. Book Dads) for the 4 Things. Thanks, Green-book dad!
