Just for Angie

It appears as if I've been tagged!!! lol... Okay, Angie... this is just for you, cuz I love you so much, and I'm sorry your printer is being a meany.

Random facts about me:
1- I can't swim. Never learned. No desire too. As white as I am, I know that's hard to believe. I am terrified of water. My dad signed me up for lessons when I was 8 or so, and it was a nightmare. He gave in after 2 lessons.... sorry Daddy!

2- When I was 19 I worked for WRFX in Charlotte, NC~ a classic rock radio station. One day the program director realized that they hadn't given away a Korbel Champaign Hot Air Balloon ride like they were supposed to, so up in the balloon I went. We took off from behind Southpark Mall, and my dad followed me as far as he could on the ground in his truck. Very fun.

3- I am a music fiend. Most people know this about me, but some people don't. I can name nearly any song in the first 5 notes.... and most of the time artist and album too. It's an uncanny knack I have.

4- I am a closet Karaoke lover. Kind of goes along with the last fact. I just bought the American Idol Karaoke Revolution for the Wii... and I am having so much fun with it!! lol.... don't ask....

5- I can't stand olives or rye bread. I've even told people I'm allergic to get out of eating them. But... secretly... I'm not allergic. Ok... I SO just busted myself.

6- If I lived near a casino, I would have a gambling problem. I LOVE blackjack. Usually I'm pretty good at it. I'm glad I don't live near one.

7- My favorite time of day~ believe it or not, is waking my kids up for school during the week. Now, this may be hard to beleive because anyone who knows me knows that I am anything but a morning person. But, in the mornings~ when I get to wake them up...see their messy hair and those big first-thing-in-the-morning grins... that does it for me. Completely.

Okay... so I'm tagging...... MONICA....CATHERINE...PAULA....KRISTY....and HEATHER A!!!

oooh! I can't swim either, Amanda! I took lessons when I was young, but my grandmother died right in the middle of my lessons and I never went back. I made sure all my kids learned to swim, though. Thanks for sharing! :)
