7 things about yourself

I've been tagged by the lovely lainie (fitness fig to most of us!). I need to say 7 (random? unknown I guess) things about myself. Here it goes!

1. I have a weird birthmark under my butt on my right thigh. When I was in H.S. I heard that it's the witches mark...and I couldn't have been happier :) I've always been a little alternative that way.

2. Like Laninie, I'm the baby of a very blended family. I have a half sister and half brother, one adopted half sister (she was adopted by the bio dad...shares a mom with my half siblings), a step sister and an adopted step brother (adopted by my "step"/real in every sense of the word except blood dad, but shares a mom with my step sister). It's been an interesting ride, I'll tell you that.

3. I was raised side by side with bears. My bio dad was a breeder. It was very fun raising the babies...not so fun giving them up. Let me tell you - the babies have the worst temper of any animal I know of. And, they don't let up when they bite you!

4. I was a cheerleader for one "semester" in H.S. Not that type of cheerleader, but really...it was fun. I just didn't like being the center of attention. Ya, ya...I know...dumb move for a social phobe.

5. I am married to a man 4 years younger than me. He was 24 and I was 28. Not that bad until you realize that I'm now 30 and he's 26 :) I robbed the craddle...hehe.

6. I am the only one on either side of my family to go beyond a B.S...was the first to get my B.S. (if I remember correctly on both sides. And, both sides have a lot of people in them...12 aunts and uncles on one side and 6 on the other). I'm actually one of two (me and the oldest) of my siblings to get my H.S. diploma on time. Not something to brag about, but it's weird being the black sheep because I've been sucessful and gotten a higher education.

7. I had a nurse yesterday that swore I was 145 at the most. She had the sliding weights scale and had it at 140 on the bottom. I was like "no, you have to move that one way up." So every 10 pounds she looked to me like...is that right? No. I'm 207. And, she was a bigger girl. It made me feel good, but also annoyed....off 40 pounds? I'll just take it as a compliment.

Whew. So, everyone that reads this is tagged (if you want - I'm a passivist like that)! Except Lainie...you can be exempt ;)

Wow, raising bears sounds cool and a little scary! I would definitely take it as a compliment that the nurse guessed a lower weight for you!!!

i got a little confused with the family, can you draw a tree for me? :)

i have always wanted to pet a little baby bear. how cool that your dad breeded them!

i would definitely take the weight thing as a compliment

Lainie said...

Yeah, I think your family is even more mixed than mine. I married a man with only one sister and his parents are still together--such a different family dynamic!

My hubby's parents are still together, but his sisters are just from his dad. It's weird, though, to have that. I am lucky to have a great (step) dad and for my parents to have been married for 19 years. The second time was a charm for my mom ( and 4th for my dad :).

Wow I have a birthmark in almost the exact spot. It's a big white blog that looks like I have spilt milk in my thigh. People used to tell me it's because my mother ws craving milk while she ws pregnant with me.

Hey, about the birthmark. What exactly does it look like? Because I have one too and umm...I am a Wiccan. I'd be interested to know about a "witches mark."
