Seven things you may not know about me.

Aaron Moore of Orange Element tagged me to do this. Normally I’d delete. But he’s a nice guy.

So, evidently I’m to share 7 things that I feel you should know of me, and then I’ll choose 7 people to go and do the same. Here goes:

1. I love pickled beets. So much so that I often receive Beet Balls as a gift.

2. When I was little, I used to climb up the weeping willow tree with a book and stay for hours. I really loved it there. I could see the stream and hear all the kids playing.

3. I went to see Styx (in the round) at Painters Mill Music Fair in the mid 1970’s. I sat in the front row with Mitchell. One of the guitar players came and sat in my chair with me and played. It was a little embarrassing.

4. I never watch TV news.

5. I can’t carry a tune. But I love to sing. I sing really LOUDLY & PROUDLY in the car when I’m alone.

6. When I was in my 20’s, I was asked out on a date by a really handsome doctor. He suggested Indian food for dinner and I was so nervous I said, “great.” Truth was, I couldn’t stand the smell of it. But I ate it and smiled. (Since then, I’ve more than acquired a taste for it – I love it. Maybe I have that guy to thank?)

7. I didn’t know that “over top” (as in, I live over top a bar) was a Baltimore colloquial term. I just learned it a few months ago. I always though it was ‘normal’.

And the 7 people from which I would enjoy learning more:
1. Kristin
2. Amy
3. Zandria
4. Tom
5. Melissa
6. Janet
7. Ezer K.

  1. uh oh, a meme! are you sure you want to know 7 things about me? hmmm. sounds fun. this should be my wednesday post as tomorrow is svmoms book club day and tuesday… time to cry.

  2. 1. I love beets as much as you love mustard. 2. That tree sounds lovely. 3. We saw Styx just last autumn. 4. Me: no TV news either, until Clint came along. 5. I’ll drive behind you, and we’ll sing together! 6.
    One of the first converations I had with Ilaiy was about how little I’d eaten Indian food, and he offered to teach me to cook it. Late bloomer on the Indian food, but I know a lot of good authentic dishes now. 7. Nope. Never heard “over top” before.

  3. fyi, I’d put “over top” in the same category as “done your” (as in “when you’re done your lunch, we’ll go to the park”). I’ve heard that a lot since moving to Maryland.

  4. Haha…my friend Liz tagged me for this too, but I haven’t posted it yet. I don’t think I’ll do fourteen random things, so I’ll just credit both of you guys. 🙂
