Apparantly, once you start

you can't stop! Here is another tag...I blame this post on a combination of boredom and a lack of motivation today at work. Hope you enjoy getting to know me a little bit more!!

Instructions: you have to write a note with 16 random things, shortcomings, facts, habits or goals about you.

1. Whenever I wash my hands, I get the urge to spit in the sink (Just FYI, I don't usually follow through with that urge).

2. I have a scar on the back of my thigh from a ferry in NYC when I was like 9 nine years old...I was not obeying rules...I have a scar on the front of my thigh from barb wire on an apartment building roof (meant to keep people off) from when I was 19...again not following you see a pattern here?

3. I want to be one of those crazy old ladies that has some quirk about her...not sure what I want the quirk to be yet....crazy hats? I ruled out being the cat lady long ago...

4. I don't like walking through my house at night with darkness behind me. Does that make sense? Like turning off the light in the room and then leaving.

5. I have ridden an elephant at the Singapore Zoo.

6. I have chronic hiccoughs.

7. My goal is to make it to all seven continents before I die...only two to go (Africa and Antartica)!!!

8. I have moved 23 times in my life. Yes, I am only 26 years old...

9. In the ten years since I began working (not counting any babysitting) I have held 11 different jobs.

10. Based on #9 and #10, for those of you who didn't already know, I am pretty sure that I am addicted to change.

11. The only time I have consumed alcohol was when my Mom gave it to me. Now before she freaks out because I am making her sound like a bad mom, here is the explanation. We moved to Italy and she bought chocolate covered cherries to share with the family. She passed them out to all of us, which we promptly ate, then she ate hers and realized what she had done. We learned to check for alcohol in chocolates while in Europe--a valuable lesson.

12. When swimming at night, I have the irrational fear that there are sharks in the pool with me.

13. Remarkably, the only bone I have broken is my little toe. (Knock on wood.) You would think with how accident prone I am, that number would be higher though. Guess I am just tough! =)

14. I am ridiculously particular about my a fault.

15. I fear gorillas, well monkeys as well. I had a bad experience as a child with a gorilla. A few years ago, I had a monkey grab onto my finger and I almost had a panic attack...Lemurs, on the other hand, I am strangely okay with. Not sure if they are considered a monkey...

16. I get so excited at Christmas time because they sell Peppermint ice cream and mint M&M's. Both should be sold year round--probably a good thing for my waistline that they arn't though.

Try Mint Truffle Hershey Kisses and Peppermint Crunch Junior Mints. Those are both also Christmastime only amazing delights!

I also get SO excited for the minty delights at Christmastime! Schwanns used to make (not sure if they still do) the yummiest peppermint stick ice cream. My mom made homemade hot fudge to put on top. Delish!
