Okay, here you go, some interesting thoughts rattling around in my head:
- Much to my husbands chagrin, I love La Femme Nikita (Okay, okay, you probably figured that one out from my username). From season one to the end, it is one of my favorite girl-power, kick a*! shows. Many thanks go out to Ian and Mindy for the season one box set for my birthday this year!
- I cannot live without a watch. I look at it about every five minutes and sometimes after I look at it I cannot remember what time it is, so I look at it again. I think there's probably a medication for this.
- I spell things with my pointer finger, usually signs I see around town, words I hear, whatever. I think there's a medication for this, too.
- One time I was running around the side of our garage and jumped right over a rattlesnake! My dad made short work of that one and I kept the rattle for a long time. . . gee, I wonder what happened to that thing. . .
- I hate self-help or any kind of book that does not have a story. I cannot retain anything from them and if you ask me what I liked in one I will probably produce a blank stare and ask: "Well, what did you like about it?"
- I love the first few days with a new baby in the hospital. If I could avoid the pregnancy, sleepless nights, labor, and future temper tantrums just to have a new baby in the hospital I would totally do it. This may be due to being spoiled at Providence Portland Hospital. Think about it: every meal is cooked for you, excellent milkshakes at the push of a button, pain medication, visitors, and, when I want them to, the nurses wheel the baby away so I can sleep. It's heaven!
- I really like to hike, and I went on quite a few overnight trips with my dad growing up. A little known fact about me is that my hands swell when I hike. I used to be ridiculed about this by some "friends" (you know who you are) when I would hike with my hands held up near my heart. Now I don't worry so much about it as the swelling doesn't last long. :)
