TAG... I'm "it"

Amy over at Herbst Handmade has cyber tagged me (yes, I may not be able to "text," but I'm starting to get the hang of this blog thing), and now I get to share 7 random/weird facts about myself for all of you, my blog readers. I'm also supposed to post the rules of the game and tag 7 other bloggers to do the same. So, here goes:

The facts:

1.) I live on a farm. My parents bought it when I was a freshman in high school, and, apart from my time in college, I've lived here ever since. My husband and I moved into the "cottage" on the back end of the 3 acres when we got married. Although we bought a house in the "city" (which is really only 5 minutes away in San Jose), we decided to stay here after my mom died 2 yeras ago, to help my dad and youngest brother. It has turned out to be a wonderful place to raise a son - Moses and I spend at least a small part of every day outside with the sheep, chickens, and rangy old farm dogs. Pretty fun.

2.) I've had a terrible fear of small, fast moving animals, namely squirrells and chickens (which poses a problem... ref. item #1) ever since I was bit on the arm by a monkey in Bali. Yes, it really happened. Let's just say this: if you ever find yourself on the beautiful isle of Bali, do NOT go into the "sacred monkey forest" in the city of Ubud. Seriously.

3.) I am an aspiring spinner. Not the exercise class, although that does sound fun. :) My husband gave me a spinning wheel for our first Christmas after we were married, and I've tried on and off to learn to use it. Someday I'll find a class and put down my sewing long enough to spin some yarn worth knitting.

4.) I married my husband when I was 19 and he was 22. We're going on 8 years now and it's fantastic!

5.) If offered the choice between an action movie and a chick flick, I'll go with action, every time, hands down.

6.) I am a total sucker for "having tea." My mom taught me that "tea always tastes better when drunk out of a fancy teacup," and I completely believe that. Thus, my love for finding the most frilly, pink tea houses I can find and spending hours there drinking tea and eating those awesome little tea sandwiches.

7.) I am a terrible dancer. Just absolutely TERRIBLE. Ask my husband. But, if you were to ask my son the same question, he would probably tell you I'm great at it, since, when daddy's gone, he and I dance our heads off all the time.

The rules:

-Link to the person who tagged you and post the rules on your blog.

-Share 7 random and/or weird things about yourself

-Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.

-Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

The people I've tagged:

Gabrielle at Design Mom
Jen at The Perfect Umbrella
Lauren at Sweet Bean's
Raw Soil

...That's all I've got, so I guess I'm breaking a rule! Sorry!

On the dancing issue...remind me to tell you about Kevin doing "the lawnmower" in front of many, many people in Russia years ago. (You will feel better about your dancing, I promise).

I'm so jealous that you live on a farm! :-) If you are looking for spinning classes try Commuknity (my "local" yarn shop on the Alameda near downtown San Jose)I know they had a spinning class last Oct. www.commuknity.com
