I'm It

I've been tagged by Brit Knitter to give seven random facts about myself.

Here are the tag rules:

Each person tagged gives 7 random facts about themselves. Those tagged need to write on their blog the 7 facts as well as the rules of the game. You need to tag 7 others and list their names on your blog. You have to leave those you are tagging a note in their comments so they know they have been tagged and to read your blog.

Seven Random Facts:

1. My first word (besides gurgles interpreted as "mom" and "dad") was "Christmas tree." (Technically, I suppose that's two.) I was fascinated by my first sight of a Christmas tree, and when my mom said "that's a Christmas tree" I replied "Christmas tree" in a stunned way. She then said "isn't it pretty?" to which I replied "pretty!" I used "pretty" constantly the whole holiday season, but didn't say Christmas tree again until the following year.

2. To this day I love Christmas decorations.

3. I am an athiest. This doesn't mess with my love of Christmas: to me, Christmas is a celebration of friends and family.

4. My father tried to force me to be a Roman Catholic. I rebelled. It took a Roman Catholic priest to get my father to understand that I could still be a good person even though I'm not religious.

5. I'm stubborn. (If you haven't already guessed.)

6. I like frogs. I happen to collect frog things, but please don't buy me ugly frog stuff just because they have frogs on them. I still have good taste (in my opinion).

7. I like doing silk paintings, but haven't had time for several years.

8. I hate tagging people. So, instead, I'll list seven more random things, starting with this one. (Plus my first several items sort of flowed from each other, rather than being truly random.)

9. I cannot visualize 4D or higher. I wish I could.

10. I am pretty good at splitting firewood. (Well, I am when I'm not out of shape.)

11. I'm good at fixing lots of things.

12. I like untangling yarn.

13. I *like* drinking water. Well, not mineral water or fizzy water. Or well water. Or water from Regina. (Or was it Saskatoon with the bad tasting water? I can't remember now. I think it was Regina.)

14. I'm afraid of swimming in water that isn't clear. I sometimes get freaked out even when it is clear. I don't necessarily let that stop me from swimming, though.

I just misread #12 and #13 and thought it said "I *like* drinking yarn." Then I snorted out loud. And I am technically in public. Oops.

I think it must be Regina with the yucky water, 'cause I've never been there, but I've been to Saskatoon and didn't notice anything horrid about the water there.
