Seven random things meme

Might I add…? tagged me to do the Seven Random Things Meme. You can read here Seven Random Things Meme by clicking here. I am not sure I can think of seven things about myself that I haven’t written about before. I’ll give it a shot.

  1. I don’t know much about my heritage and would like to know more. All that I do know is that my father’s grandmother was English and my mother’s great-grandmother was Cherokee. I am pretty sure that my mother is a descendant of English immigrants to America due to her maiden name. I searched online and found that it was originally English.
  2. When I was a senior in high school my father talked me out of joining the army.
  3. I wasn’t interested in learning to drive and waited until I was seventeen to get my license. I used my time on the school bus to study for tests and do homework.
  4. I have a gift with animals. They are typically not afraid of me. To this day I can hold bees and wasps without getting stung and I even pet them. Children are comfortable with me right away as well.
  5. I eat my hamburger upside down according to my husband. The top bun is closest to my mouth while others eat their burgers with the bottom bun closest to their mouths.
  6. The thought of putting yarn in my mouth makes my teeth shiver. And, if anyone else does it it makes my teeth shiver. Actually, just thinking of it is making my teeth shiver! I suspect it is like what others describe when they hear chalk scraping against a blackboard which doesn’t bother me.
  7. When I take a bath I will not fill the tub until I am in it. I don’t want any dirt from the bottom of my feet to get in the water. I get in and rinse my feet off. Afterwards, I fill the tub. I know that is silly but I have to do it that way.

Here are the rules which you must abide by if you are tagged.
1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself: some random, some weird.
3. Tag 3 people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them).
4. Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment at their blogs.

    Hey I eat my hamburger upside down then too…although I prefer to think of it as right side up and everyone else is upside down ;)

    I found you through the NaBloPoMo randomizer, but I see we have some links in commons…the expat ones (I’m an American in Italy) :)

    Sognatrice, That is exactly what I asked my husband…why is it I that is eating it upside down and not everyone else?

    Italy is the next country I would like to visit. We went one day but we made it to the border, had a pizza and went slowly back home to Strasbourg where we lived at the time.

    Thank you for stopping by!

    Really cute layout, love the bird.

    Like sognatrice, I also found you through the NaBloPoMo randomizer! :)

    hey – I’m up already and thanks for the tag.

    Thank you so much for tagging me! That’s fun.

    I think I eat the hamburger “correctly”, but Mr. and I disagree on how to eat an egg properly. So – are you a “point-up” or a “point-down”-person? I firmly believe in the point-down method. It delays the gratification of the yolk, but my husband, who grew up on a chicken farm in Illinois, thinks he knows best. Can’t imagine why…

    Sorry for saying the christmas tree came from Germany. If you however feel like annoying your husband even further, you could call it “Elsass”! That will ruin his day… ;-)

    How fun that you lived in Strasbourg! We were in Colmar quite a few times, for opera projects. And there was a long period where we contemplated Strasbourg as our new home town. I love the area.

    Thanks for stopping by on my blog!

    Nattering Natalie,
    I am happy I found NaBloPoMo through some of my favorite blogs. It has been a great way to find new bloggers. :)

    I am a scrambled egg kinda girl. Luckily, my husband loves to eat scrambled egg sandwiches with mayo. :)

    I love to get his goat in regard to whether sauerkraut is German or Alsatian. In Alsace it is called choucroute. But, it is pretty much the same thing.

    I miss Alsace. It is just beautiful there.

    Thanks for doing the 7 things thing. Life’s been hectic lately, so I’m just now catching up on your last week’s worth of posting.

    I really love reading about how you’re raising your kids bilingually and about your life in a Francophone country. I agree that kids tend to naturally pick up the language that their main caregiver speaks to them, and today that is still usually the mother.
