Weird and wacky me!


Hope your new year is starting off bright! I guess my first post of 2006 is going to be a little different. Tenika tagged me (thanks!), so I am supposed to list 5 weird things about myself and then "tag" 5 other people to do the same. And then post on their blog that they have been "tagged."

Here goes....
1. One of my favorite movies ever is Fight Club. Chuck Palahniuk (the author of the book) rocks!

2. Several years ago my husband and I took a tragedy tour. We visited the site of the Federal Building in Oklahoma City, stood on the grassy knoll in Dallas, went through Waco, TX (but were afraid to ask where the branch dividian once stood) and drove through the parking lot taking pictures of the Correctional Facility in Portage, Wis when Jeffery Dahmer was there. Taking pictures was NOT such a good idea!!!

3. I'm Buddhist. Being a white, suburban Midwest mommy in the land of Lutherans, that is certainly not the norm.

4. I am almost ashamed to say, I read the celebrity-babies blog daily.

5. Lastly, this seems to be fairly uncommon these days, and some people actually consider it "weird". I had my first baby without any pain medication. Yeah..ouch!

Ok, now I tag Michelle, Elsie, Ali, Amy, twistedsoda, acumamakiki...ok, I'm tagging more than five....elizabeth, chris, Lia and shankari you're it too! Why not shake it up a bit, right?!

Happy New Year!! I'll play later today, right now we have the pleasure of cleaning out our basement in anticipation of the contractor coming this week to semi-finish the space.

Chris said...

I'm almost done with my list... Fight Club is one of my favorite movies, too.

Have you read White Noise by Don Delillo?

as you know I can completely relate to others finding natural chilbirth "wierd"..almost a reason to get angry with you in a way. I had CJ totally med free as well.
I had no idea you were Buddist(did I spell that right?)! I am so very anxious to explore that with you. I also LOVE Fight Club, although with me that's probably not much of a shock to hear.
Well, looking forward to chating soon.Take care.

thanks for the tag. i'll try to get mine done tomorrow...i've got to think about it a bit.

twistedsoda said... that is something that has always fascinated me! I've been tagged and sent my 5 bloggers their questions..I don't think having meds is weird at all in childbirth...more like very brave!

Shankari said...

Finally, I could put up my post on this!
