6 UN-spectacular things about me...
1. I lost one of my permanent front teeth when I was 12.
I used to take baton -twirling lessons at the local recreation center. I was running up the bleachers ( instead of the stairs) just before practice started and tripped. Thankfully the edge of the cement bleacher broke my fall and knocked out one of my front teeth. Braces had to move all my teeth forward and one of the side ones was capped and made to look like my front teeth:))
2. I cry at odd moments of certain movies.
Ok, so this may not be so odd, alot of people cry at movies, but Chris thinks its funny. Like this weekend Nicole and I were watching Father of the Bride 2 with Steve Martin. At the scene where they are playing sappy music and hes holding his newborn grandson and daughter I was tearing up.
3. I'm Directionally impaired
I'm not kidding. Marrying an ex-truck driver may have been the best ( or worst) idea I've ever made. I drive by landmarks , not by north , south , east or west. Don't tell me to go west down I-20 , exit McKinney St. and go North for a mile and a half. I will NEVER make it to where I'm supposed to be. Like when my cousin was going to college at North Texas State University in Denton. She asked me up there for a party weekend with her sorority. Normally about an hour drive? took me almost two hours, couldn't find her dorm, lol and wound up in the guys sorority house parking lot instead of hers. Yup, you guessed it, Chris does NOT let me navigate anywhere.
4. I'm an avid computer gamer - aka GEEK
Chris got me hooked on a game called Everquest II. You create a character, earn money, kill TONS of ugly looking mobs such as vampires, gnolls, bees, attacking trees, gorillas, and some stuff that can't be classified as a real life type monster and is usually the brain malfunction of a programmer. Seriously , in one of the dungeons that we go into , there are these things that look like flying sperm with teeth. Yea, what was THAT particular programmer smoking when he thought that mob up. My main character is a lvl 79 Enchantress.
5. I'm not good at math
I made passing grades in school until I got to Geometry. It gave me nightmares. I had a tutor most of the year and still only squeaked by with a C. On the other hand I loved Algebra, especially the problems that took one entire side of notebook paper to do. Lets see how good I remember it when Nicole gets old enough to do Algebra. Thank goodness Chris is good at most types of Math.
6. I read. Alot.
I know I mention that in the 'About Me' section of this blog, but maybe you don't understand just how much I like to read. When I had Nicole everyone told me that my reading time would be seriously cut . I told them no it wouldn't. When I've felt that I've been neglecting my books, or I wanted to escape from real life for like 10 mins, but I have to take a shower, get ready for my day yada yada yada, I've taken that book in the shower with me. I face the wall for a few minutes letting the hot water relax my back and I read. If we are going somewhere and I don't want to be in the car? I'm reading. Even if its like a 15 minute trip. I've been known to throw my current book into my purse when we are going to a party or family get together. Chris has stopped asking why and just deals with it. Occasionally he still asks ' you really think you are going to get a chance to read?' The answer is always a resounding yes...
The biggest book I've ever read was 1021 pages and was the Biography of King Henry VIII. Totally Awesome.

K, now for the T.P Eater...
I've mentioned in the past that my mother got Nicole and I hooked on the Discovery Health channel. Lastnight we were watching 'Untold stories of the E.R.' and they had this women that came in complaining of abdominal pain. She was a frequent flyer and the staff did not want to deal with her. The doctor that got her freaked out because as he was talking to her she was eating toilet paper. Her friend handed her a roll of TP and she tore bits off and ate them. O.M. G. They did a pelvic on her and nothing. She stood up, kind of fell into the nurse and actually bit her on the boob and the nurse kind of flopped her into the wheelchair. Then she started holding her stomach and complaining that she was going to throw up. Turns out she had an ectopic pregnancy. I know that is no laughing matter but come one, did it get stuck on some undigested TP? ( no I'm not stupid enough to think TP could get in your fallopian tubes ) but come on... she said she had been doing it since she was like 12 as a nervous habit. I say total whack job, what do u think? I mean, qustions arise when you think of someone eating toilet
paper. When she goes to the bathroom, does she actually have to wipe? or does it automatically do it for her??? Do her blood tests show she gets enough fiber in her diet? does she use TP that is safe for septic systems and breaks down automatically? does she prefer quilted? one or two ply?
Anyway, hope you enjoyed the meme. If you eat TP, please don't let me know , that would be TMI.
