8 Things About Me

I have been tagged by sweet Jill!

The Rules are:
-Each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves.
-The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed.
-At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

1. I have a slight OCD issue. I HATE having dirty hands. I don't mind germs. I work with little kids. I could careless about using hand sanitizer. BUT I hate having anything on my hands besides lotion. When I cook I rinse my hands and use a million paper towels. Dirty hands just drive me NUTS!

2. I come off as super secure and confident. Well, I hide the fact that I can be very insecure. I worry what others think of me. I kick myself in the butt after meeting someone or saying too much. I wish I could just walk away confident that I was me and who cares what was thought about me. STUPID!

3. I was a virgin when I got married. YEP! Are you shocked? I fooled around here and there but never went all the way. Grumps was a virgin too. THAT is not a shocker if you know him.

4. I am terrified of heights. Once Grumps took me on a free fall ride. I freaked out. I freaked out so bad I started to cry and cried for a while after the ride was over.

5. I have a telephone phobia. I HATE calling people. As I have gotten older I have worked on getting better. When I was younger I would work myself up into a freak attack before calling for an appointment. I would refuse pizza if I was made to make the call. At back to school night I let the parents know about my fear and explain how email works wonders. HA! Know that when I call you, you are really liked!

*This is getting hard!

6. I will watch anything on tv. I am completely addicted to television. I have to try a show at least once before writing it off. This week I tried Shaq's show for fat kids to lose weight. I TiVoed it as a joke. I LOVE the show. I found myself cheering for the kids and crying as they told their sad stories. I don't watch comedies very often but will give on a shot if it looks good. If you ever need to know about a show, give me a call especially reality tv.

7. I have been to 17 countries including the good ole USA! These are not just airport stops, that would be cheating, but actual over night trips. Many of them were trips for a month as a teenager. Most of the places are where tourists with money NEVER go. I even got to visit many of the wonders of the world. Some of the places required living out of a backpack and wearing the same underwear more than once. Even one of the places I lived for 2 years, the armpit of South America. There are many more places I hope to visit one day. I hope my list can keep growing.

8. FINALLY we are at the end! My life is an open book. I have a problem with not having secrets. I am a good keeper of other people's secrets but not my own. I will talk about anything to the point it makes others uncomfortable. I just can't help myself. Grumps hates it when I start telling stories or talk about my poop. After I have downed a few drinks it only gets worse. BUT it is me. I can't change that!

There you have it! 8 interesting or not things about me. Now it is your turn. If you haven't done this yet and shared your soul IT IS YOUR TURN!!!

#5 must be why you can be my friend. I don't answer my phone. Really, I'll see that someone is calling and just ignore the call 90% of the time, let them leave a message and tell myself I'll call them back (which usually happens within that month or so, ha!). There are about 3 people whose phone calls I actually answer. I do this for no apparent reason. How bad of a person am I?

Interesting! I love these things because it gives more of an idea who's blogging!!! Hopped over here from Perky Ovaries...

I've always had a bit of #5 too. But working in Client Service where you actually have to talk to clients has helped a lot. Still, I LOVE email if I can choose that over a phonecall! (Unless it's my family, them I love to talk to)

I had a panic attack today because The Bishop asked me to make phone calls for him, I don't know why I get so nervous around phones... E-mails are my friend.

I am completely obsessive about people germs. I can dig in the garden and pet my dogs, but I have to wash my hands or use hand sanitizer after I touch a restaurant menu or the salt and pepper. yikes!

I HATE THE PHONE! Like Jill , I have no problem letting it ring -unlike my husband who is (and always been)completely Pavlovian with the phone. Maybe it's because of who he works for... hmmm...
