Random Things

I haven't been tagged in awhile. I was tagged by both Amy and Chrissy for this one. Here are the rules:

1. Link to your tagger
2. List 7 Random/Weird facts about yourself
3. Tag 7 More people
4. Go to them and let them know they have been tagged.

I did this tag once. But it might be fun to see what else I can come up with. It is kind of hard considering I just composed my 100th to post this weekend. I wonder what will come out of my brain as I think...

1. I am a somewhat picky sleeper. I can't sleep if there is any noise anywhere (including Steve's snoring). I also am unable to sleep in any mode of transportation. My husband, in contrast, sleeps in the car if we are traveling for more than a half hour ANYWHERE. Needless to say, it is ONE of the reasons that I always drive when we go places. But we won't go into that right now.

2. I am very bad at typing. When ever I type anything, I just randomly hit buttons and don't look at what I'm writing...yes, I am a glorified "hunt and packer." If it weren't for spell checker, I really would not be able to type anything. I am a good speller, just bad at typing.

3. I PLAYED today. We went to the park today after Noah got out of school. Shamefully, sometimes I sit and watch the kids play. Not today! Today, I was the troll in the Billy Goats Gruff. When Noah came to head butt me and push me off the bridge, I decided that instead of drowning, I could turn into a beautiful princess. When you're the only female in a house of boys, it is your RIGHT to be a princess when the mood strikes you.

4. I am a pianist who HATES performing. Put me and my piano behind any vocalists, instrumentalists, or even with another pianist and I am in heaven. But solo...NO WAY. I suffer from performance anxiety to this day.

5. I am a nerd...first rate, all encompassing, complete and utter nerd. I wear the same clothes and hairstyle that I had in high school (with a little variance). I really have no style and that's okay with me. My mom used to call me a nerd the whole time I was growing up and I didn't realize it was true until after I was in college. By that time, it didn't matter anymore.

6. My husband and kids love me anyway.

7. If Noah had been a girl, his name would have been Holly. If Aaron had been a girl, his name would have been Leah. The middle name wold have been Eleanor either way, after my grandmother.

I know...not very interesting but it's the best I can do between listening to my husband run up and down the stairs a bazillion time to tell Aaron to be quiet and go to sleep.

I think everyone has done this one. The only person I know for sure who hasn't is Beth. So tag, Beth, you're it.

Happy Thursday.

I'm a picky sleeper too! Drives my husband crazy. I swear I can hear the faucet dripping in the neighbors house and it would keep me awake! Great list!

I have terrible stage fright. I can play in a group. I can direct a group. Just don't ask me to do anything by myself. My hands shake uncontrollably when I get nervous - not a good thing when you are a bell ringer.

LOL - My paternal grandmother's name was Bertha Josephine. I didn't name any of the girls after that. I loved her but my cousin took Josephine and I just don't see Bertha coming back. She actually went by Birdie.

I have been tagged and I too have done this all ready. I think I will see what other ones I can come up with too. Thanks for the idea!

Hillary said...

Thanks so much for sharing!

I'm finally starting to get over my piano performance anxiety. I still prefer to be the accompanist but I do ok now when playing solo's in church.

I feel like I know you better. I am a picky sleeper too. Snoring drives me crazy, like wanting to burn the bed with him in it....I like to play the piano but don't like an audience.

Jocelyn said...

Just stoppin' by to say hi! Sorry haven't been visiting in a while. :(

Chrissy said...

Thanks for playing, Kristi...Great list!

I too I'm a very picky sleeper. But I can sleep in the car just like a baby.
