So yesterday over at @Candylandgang blog where she dissed her cat in her musings about random things. It got me to thinking. Yes, I do that sometimes. So today I decided to share some random facts with you guys about me. Which is convenient, as I am an expert on the subject. I am sure she won't mind, in fact isn't imitation the biggest form of flattery? That sounds a lot better than saying I stole her idea. Which I DID NOT do. *wink wink*
Random Fact #2. I am actually pretty fluent in a second language. You are shocked. I can tell. What? No, it's not French. I actually speak geek pretty well. Yes, that is spelled correctly and no I didn't mean greek. I eat greek, but I don't speak it.
Random Fact #3. I love reading how-to books. Seriously.
Random Fact #4. I have a huge cook-book collection that doubled in size after my Grandmother passed away. My oldest cookbook came from her and was published in 1942.
Random Fact #5. I got an iPad two weeks ago. (I can't believe it's only been two weeks) And now I wonder how I ever lived without it. It hasn't made my kindle obsolete. Yet. Mainly because the screen is hard to read in direct sunlight and that is where I do alot of my reading. On the beach. Don't hate, I didn't tell the rest of the world to live anywhere else, now did I?
Random Fact #6. I met my husband and married him exactly six months later. Everyone made book on how long we would last. I am talking about our friends here people. Exactly one year later I won almost five hundred dollars when we were still together. Betting on myself has always been a sure thing.
Random Fact #7. When I was younger I always laughed when my older female relatives would get "ma'am'ed" and moan about it. It never bothered me when a younger person (a kid) would say it to me because I would always think to myself..."You're Momma is raising you right." The first time an adult male said m'am to me I looked behind me to see who he was talking to. My husband fell over laughing at the comical expression on my face. He pointed out to me that even though he was an adult male he was only in his twenties and I probably did seem like a ma'am to him. Yes, my husband is still walking without the aid of cane, but it was close. I remember it like it was last weekend. Oh, snap, it was last weekend.
Aren't you glad I shared all of that with you guys today?
So give me a random fact about you. I love to hear from you guys.
