Ya just can't get enough of me

Yeah, right.

But after being tagged to write six weird things about myself and now five things you don’t know about me within a week, I feel flattered. So, here goes with the five things:

1. I have a couple of scars. One of them is on my face, but mostly people don’t seem to notice it. I got the facial scar in a car crash JP and I were in when we were 17. The other scar is on my arm. I tell people I got it in a fight with a tough Puerto Rican chick, but really it happened when I picked up a trash bag, and a piece of glass poked through and raked across my skin. (And please, I’m not disparaging Puerto Rican women. Where I grew up, they really were tough. They didn’t take crap from anyone!)

2. I played flute when I was in junior high and high school. I wanted to play the drums. That’s probably why one day, I came home from school to find my mother had bought me a flute. So, flute it was.

3. I come from a crazy blended family, so I have six brothers and two sisters (that I know of!). My oldest brother is old enough to be my father (a young father), and the youngest is 10 years younger than I am. I am the youngest of the girls.

4. You know how those Bowl games always have a Miss Bowl thing going on? Well, one year in college, I entered a Miss Bowl competition. There was no parading around in swimsuits or anything like that, thank goodness. I didn’t really like the experience, and I didn’t even make the first cut. I just thought it would be fun to say I tried. (And really, it would have been fun to wave to the crowd while going down the street on a float, even if I was just a princess and not the queen.)

5. I have a sudden desire to try hang gliding or kiteboarding. Maybe sometime in 2007, I’ll actually get to do one of them!

I have a few scars too. And something you don't know about me--- my nose and mouth are crooked. True story. You can't really tell by looking at me-- but if you stare long enough (not sure why anyone really would) you can see that somehow my nose and mouth aren't perfectly aligned.

Interesting list. I didn't know that you knew JP when you were teenagers.

Wow - 8 siblings! That is very cool. I have 2, but always wanted more.

I played flute too. Did you ever try out a piccolo? I still have my flute, sold the piccolo, regretting that.
