Memed--Here ya go Bepo

Well, my sister April "memed" me (whatever the heck that means). Now I am supposed to put 7 random or weird things about myself that no one would know. It's going to be a challenge to keep it to only 7. Check the bottom for your name: you could be the next one to be "memed". . . (insert evil laugh here). . .
Here's the official rules as they are to be posted:

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Okay, here you go, some interesting thoughts rattling around in my head:
  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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. . .
  5. 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?"
  6. 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!
  7. 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. :)
Here's the 7 people I meme: Brooke, Ian, Dorina, Jerry, Lylah, Candace, and Jenni.

Hey Elizabeth-
Yes, we went to Oregon last month. I absolutely LOVE it there. Jeff and I really want to move there, but the practicality of it is non-existent, so unless God pulls a miracle out of His big cosmic sleeve (which he can and does do sometime!), we'll be staying here.I'm really enjoying reading these "meme" things. I can relate to your #2. I'm always forgetting things immediately. For me, though, it's usually answers to questions. I'll ask Tobias if he wants cheese on his sandwich three times because I'm not paying attention to his first two answers. What can I say? I'm not the greatest multi-tasker.
