Monday Morning Meme

I grabbed a free-range tag from Candy Minx for this meme:

Seven Random Things About Me

  1. I taught myself to ride a bike when I was 5. No training wheels. Even then I was very methodical. I decided that first, I needed to learn to balance. So I'd hop on the bike, pick up my feet, and see how long I could keep from falling over. Unsurprisingly, this technique didn't work well. Which didn't stop me from trying the same thing when I got my pogo stick a few years later.

  2. I was a church pianist from the time I was 13. It was an elected position. I started out on Sunday evening services (the least prestigious), moved to Sunday school, then Youth services, and finally, at 14, to Sunday worship. Then my parents got divorced, and that was the end of that. When I was 17, I got a paying job as a pianist for a small church. $20 a week.

  3. When I was in the Army, I maxed (scored 300 on) every PT test I ever took (check the link for details and current standards--they've changed somewhat, but not all that much). The run was always the hardest part for me. The final PT test in AIT, I did 56 push-ups in 2 minutes. I was pretty proud of that.

  4. I came in 2nd in my 4th grade spelling bee by forgetting to capitalize "Norwegian."

  5. You know how when you're in your 40s, your menstrual cycle is supposed to start becoming irregular? I'm backwards. From the time I was 12, I had periods every 2 - 3 months. Then when I hit 40, bam. Like clockwork. Every freaking 28 days. How the heck do women put up with this for decades??

  6. People frequently underestimate both my age and my weight. If I weren't so shy, I could do really well at those carnival games where they guess your age or weight, and you win a prize if they're wrong. I'd post a photo, but...

  7. I'm not at all photogenic. Or at least, I heartily loathe most pictures of myself--which is evidenced by the fact that I just spent 30 minutes looking for a decent picture before giving up.
You're supposed to tag 7 people, but I'm setting the tags free--in the immortal words of Mork, "Fly! Be free!" Grab a tag if you like, comment to let me know if you do.

Asides from being shy, I don't think I'm photogenic either! And that's why I'd rather not paste my pic online, muhahaha.... enjoyed reading your meme as usual, Darla!
 
Darla, photogenic or not you have done great job of putting up pictures of not only yourself but your family too, recently. And it all nice :)

Enjoy reading and learning MORE about you.....
