There is this FaceBook “Game” that’s been going around a bit where (to the best of my understanding – i did NOT read the official rule book!) someone assigns you a “number” and you are supposed to post that many things about yourself that other’s might not know.
While I’ve had such fun reading other’s posts I did manage to avoid being given a number myself until this weekend.
I was assigned the number “9” and my first thought was – “who are you kidding!?!? I’m totally a “10!” 🙂
My second thought was… seriously? I sometimes think, or rather, i’m sometimes informed, that my blog should be subtitled “the Queen of TMI” (that’s “too much information” if you missed the day in school where they handed out all these crazy abbreviations. SMH)
So, I decided it might be fun to play.
Now, since I know you are frantic and breathlessly waiting to learn even MORE about me (hehehehe) I will put you out of your misery. And I intend to do this in a random, stream of conscious style of writing so typos will remain uncorrected! (Well… maybe.)
1.) I have a shoe obsession… I adore shoes! Every style – shape – type… I insanely love shoes. However. I completely hate wearing them. I do everything possible with bare feet. Driving, eating, leading worship, playing in the snow, flying… (which has lead to several humiliating occasions of asking the passenger in front of or behind me, to please pass me the shoe that slid away from me during take off and/or landing and is now resting beside their briefcase.) On the plus side – my shoes rarely wear out!
2.) I can not bear having my belly button tickled or even touched.
3.) I had an actor playing “Spider-man” pretend kiss me on camera just before watching the Broadway production of “Turn off the Dark” … then walked into the theater, show began, and Peter Parker (uhhh Spiderman) was in HIGH SCHOOL! I sat in the dark turning red and feeling like a total perv.
4.) I am intensely competitive and love playing games of all sorts. Therefore it is especially infuriating to lose “Jeopardy” to my sexy husband. Even more so when the category is all pictures. And yes. This happens regularly!
5.) I was accepted to Julliard – but did not attend.
6.) Working on a cadaver dissection in Nursing School was, and is, one of the HIGHLIGHT experiences of my entire life!
7.) I love power tools and makeup in equal amounts. I believe I can fix most anything with duct tape and kitchen knife.
8.) I am working diligently on becoming more and more “love.” And while I do believe I see progress, I seem to realize each day how much further I am from being love. But I will not give up!
9.) I love stories – in all forms: Books, movies, television… but mostly I love the stories of people. The collaboration of writing the “story” of our life fascinates me. How we work with God and with others who cross our path to craft the fabric of our lives… That the beauty we want is ours to create ~ together. And taking the ugly, messy, hateful, embarrassing parts and working together to fashion something precious… that is just the very best thing in the world to me.
So because in some form or fashion we are – at least at this very moment brushing lives – I’m extremely grateful for you. Today – and always.
