25 Random Things

First, Betsy did this meme. A few random things from my middle daughter's list:

3. I am wearing a green t-shirt with The Beatles on it.
5. I am currently reading Jane of Lantern Hill, even though I'm only 4 or so pages in.
7. I love my dog Sydney!
10. I have writing group today with some friends.
12. My hair poofs when it's humid.
15. I LOVE The Hunger Games. The books, not the actual games.
17. I'm working on the sequel to my novella.
18. I play violin.
 24.I greatly dislike my retainers.
25.WHAT????? I'M ALREADY DONE???!?! Okay. Bye!

 This inspired Ramona (who was looking over my shoulder as I read Betsy's meme) to do her own 25 random things. Here are a few of them: 

i am not in my pajamas yet.

i love my dog sydney!

i love veggie tales.

i like pretending that i am a governess for a 10 year old girl.

i know how to knit.

tink backwards is knit.

i so so so love Scooby Doo!

i greatly dislike the hunger games

i have met jim arnosky.

i like jim arnosky.

And now, mine. But I won't bore you with 25. Here are 12 and a half random things:

1. I can't abide bread pudding.

2. Atticus loves bread pudding.

3. I was a theater major for awhile.

4. Yesterday, Ramona told me that a chameleon in a new movie was named Pascal. My response? I explained Pascal's Wager to her.

5. I've lived in Massachusetts, Washington, Alaska, Florida and Nebraska.

6. When I was in high school, a rumor circulated about me that I was engaged.

7. I had never met the boy I was rumored to be engaged to.

8. My daughters think I need those annoying people from What Not to Wear

9. I may need those people, but fortunately neither my husband nor I care about clothes.

10. Grilled chicken, garden tomatoes and sliced avocados may be the perfect meal.

 11. I was an English major for awhile.

12. I remember Romper Room and Captain Kangaroo.

12 1/2. If I could go back in time, I would choose to visit ....

Out of meme time!

Hey, how weird is it that I started out as a Drama major, moved to being an English major, until I finally settled on Psychology? I guess if you think about it, a lot of Drama and English go together....

How funny, Mary Kate! I was moving toward a Philosophy major when I then moved on to Spiritual Despair (though I never formally declared a Spiritual Despair major ....) :)

I have warned my entire family that if they EVER put me on What Not to Wear they are forever on my not-speaking-to-you list. That show is kind of like seeing a glass fall - you watch with horror, but you're riveted until the crash.

Bread pudding isn't so bad, I guess. If you have to eat it. But rice and tapioca? WHY were those invented??

Maybe I like my pudding only smooth and chocolate? Hm.

I briefly read that Ramona could knit backwards, and I was going to be envious. Of course, that could be called purling...

I am so with Betsy on the hair poof thing - lucky me, I live in the world's most humid place (that's my story, and I'm sticking to it). Well, it's not so humid in the winter, but the summer... oy!

I have never seen that what-not-to-wear show, but I'm sure I would qualify too. Who cares?!

I'm sure my family sometimes thinks that I desperately need Clinton and Stacy (and Nick of course), however, I'm so old that I'm sure that Clinton and Stacy wouldn't even be interested in taking me on.

I'm not a huge fan of bread pudding, although I do make it because the guys like it, and I will eat it, but I love tapioca and some days could eat an entire double batch all by myself if allowed to. I will also say that CHOCOLATE tapioca pudding is even better.

I love this, Karen! So cute! And I am definitely with you on the best meal...yum! You lived in Alaska? And, I could care less about the clothes too.

God bless and hugs,
