Amanda tagged me to list 10 weird things about myself. This is way too easy!
1 - I can seal off my nose with my upper lip
Half of our kids can do this, and half cannot.
2 - I have a terrible sense of direction and forget where I am and where I am going all the time. This happens most often when I am driving and talking. I also sometimes feel that I know where I am and know where I am going, but it turns out that I am totally turned around and lost.
3 - I have only 2 bras. And they are both too big. I lost a little weight this year, and apparently half of the weight came right from my chest. I need to buy a couple new ones (bras, can't afford new boobs) that fit, and I don't know why I don't just do it. Maybe I am hoping that I will get my boobs back. Two is not enought. I think I will buy 3. or 4. Someday.
4 - I felt really wierd at our book club meeting this Saturday. They were discussing using the library's bag-o-books, rather than ordering a book from Deseret Book (LDS bookstore). I had read several of the "gentile" book selections, even though they were full of s*x (not like "adult" books, or anything, just regular trade books, but still) and had to let the girls know that maybe they wouldn't be the best options for a Relief Society book club. (The Time Traveller's Wife would have been really embarrassing to discuss with Sister Mohler.) That made me feel a little odd and worldly. and probably sinful. While I am confessing to reading bad books, I should probably mention that I have seen a rated R movie or two.
5 - I was a teen parent.
6 - If Hannah has a baby when she is the same age that I was when she was born, I could be a grandmother in 5 short years. YIKES!
7 - 7 Brides for 7 Brothers is probably my favorite movie. I would love love love to see it on stage! I always felt connected to that movie because I have 6 sisters and our last name is McBride. (7 McBrides for 7 Brothers) I loved watching it as a kid, but it is even better now as an adult because it is sooooo unbelievable! Bless your beautiful hide....
8 - I love cucumber sandwiches. A little cream cheese on a bagle and a stack of thin sliced cucumber is divine. Add some red onion slices and sprouts, and not only do you have the perfect sandwich, but you also have really bad breath!
9 - I could very easily have a uni-brow.
10 - I love to turn up the radio and belt out the song while I am driving in the car. This may be the MOST embarrassing thing a mom can do in front of a 7th grade daughter and her friends. Well, probably not the MOST embarrassing...
I would like to pass this meme on to Mary (one of the 7 McSisters) and Deanne. Please tell me that I am not the only wierd one around!
