5 Things you don’t know about me

Erica tagged me to tell you five things you don’t know about me.

Let’s see what I can come up with…

1. In second grade I had to stay in at recess once for calling my teacher a bitch.

2. I can break two pine boards stacked on top of each other.

3. I used to celebrate my purchase of Achtung Baby every year by cooking an elaborate Irish meal. My sister was the only witness/victim. One year I also signed my mom up for a cable box for a week so I could watch a pay-per-view U2 concert that weekend (she was out of town).

4. In seventh grade I was chosen to represent my school in a regional math competition. This does not say great things about my school.

5. I like to travel by myself. I don’t get lonely. I find it thrilling to see if I can get along in a strange place without help. I also make it a game to figure out what the mannerisms and dress are that would make me blend with the locals.

Oooh, I forgot to tag anyone. Here goes: Meredith, Jo, Bon, Melissa, and Meghan.

Side note: I have enough people reading and commenting here regularly enough that I can actually tag people. Consider me nerdishly excited!

    Wow you were so brave to swear at your teacher, especially in second grade! (My teacher used to make me cry all the time) And what do you break the pine boards with? If it’s your skull, I’m going to be sooo impressed. #5 is really impressive; that is the best outlook I’ve ever heard from anyone.

    So, what was your Dutch word for bitch?

  3. Jo in Utah says:

    That’s okay, I am nerdishly excited to have been tagged! My first time. I am meme virgin no longer.

    Erica – I sound braver than I was. I was actually terrified of her and would get sick to my stomach every morning before school.

    Mom – I forget exactly, I just remember the INTENT. Trut, or stomme tut or something like that. But she pulled my hair!

    Jo – Glad to be of service!

  5. Mama says:

    I finally remembered the bad word. It is “Teef”, which is actually the exact translation, a female dog. But she pulled your hair?! How disgusting!
