Six Things

I have been tagged. So you know that means. A random post with random things about me. Thanks to @JeremyHerbel for tagging me with the 6 things meme.

The Rules:
  1. Link to the person who tagged you.
  2. Post the rules on the blog.
  3. Write six random things about yourself.
  4. Tag six people at the end of your post.
  5. Let each person know they have been tagged.
  6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

My 6 Things:

  1. When I empty the dishwasher, I put the just cleaned dishes in the bottom or back of the cabinet pushing the ones that are already in there towards the front so they're the first used. I guess my philosophy for this is that every dish is being equally used. Same thing when I put away laundry.
  2. I'm born and raised a Texan and have lived here most of my life. Except for the two fantastic years I spent in Boston going to graduate school. Those two years taught me so much about myself and life. Though I love Texas and can't imagine living anywhere else (well actually I can but I don't because this is family, this is home), part of me misses Boston so much that at times it takes my breath away thinking about it.
  3. The pinkie finger on my right hand doesn't lay flat. When I place my hand on a table or other flat surface, my pinkie finger makes a sort of peak. I can push it down to lay flat, but as soon as I release it, it pops back up.
  4. I've changed more tires than just about everyone I know. Seriously, at least 12. And 4 of those in the past year. Of course the upside of this is that I can change my own tire in under 15 minutes.
  5. I still have all my Belle dolls, porcelain figures and other stuffed characters from the movie Beauty and the Beast. I can't seem to make myself give them away as Beauty and the Beast is still one of my all-time favorite movies.
  6. I knew how to line dance by the age of 10. When I was little, I danced. Ballet, tap, jazz, clogging. And we'd often be asked to perform at various festivals, fairs, nursing homes, etc around the city. Our studio had a standing engagement every Thursday night at a country western bar. And groups were assigned a certain Thursday a month. With my mom, sister, brother and I all dancing, we often spent at least 2 Thursdays a month - often 3 - at this bar. After we'd perform, there would be line dancing and we often stayed for a song or two. So now whenever Boot Scootin' Boogie plays at a wedding or whatnot, you will find my sister, brother and me on the dance floor doing what we learned way back when.

Who I'm Tagging:

Okay, I believe that makes 6 things about me. Now I get to tag people. I'll think I'll tag Michele, Lindsey, Jennifer, Jen, Jess and you. Have fun!

I like your laundry and dishes policy. I've often had this thought about dishes when I realize I use the same stuff all the time. Of course, now I manage to go long w/o doing the dishes, and everything gets used.
As for tire changing, the first time I ever had to change a flat on my car when after my company's Christmas party. I had gone downtown to meet some friends afterwards, and had it happen there. So I was in a suit, on Cedar Springs, at 12:30 AM changing a tire. I was so worried some drunk idiot would hit me, I think I changed it in under 5 minutes. ;)

Thanks for sharing!

I'm w/ Jeremy on that one about the dishes.. my dishwasher gets behind on doing them (my oldest daughter) so we end up using all the dishes equally.
I've never changed a tire so thats awesome!
I wasn't in dance but we use to do line dancing in gym class in high school. I hated it but did it! I was also in the Guard (total band geek) so I learned a lot of dance moves while twirling a flag/rifle/baton/etc!

Geez, I promise to respond as soon as I can. Wedding in 10 days and things are NUTS. Thanks for the tag though - my first!
