25 Random Things tag

I’ve officially been tagged twice for this, so I guess I’ll do it. But I’m not doing it twice...sorry.

Once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. (To do this, go to "notes" under tabs on your profile page, paste these instructions in the body of the note, type your 25 random things, tag 25 people (in the right hand corner of the app) then click publish.

1. I’ve just decided to train for a half-marathon. (The more people I tell, the more of a chance I’ll actually do it.)
2. I absolutely love anything German, except kraut & kohl.
3. I love reading, and when I’m in a good book, I tune absolutely everything else out for hours. Dave hates it.
4. I like learning new things, but once I reach a certain competency, my interest wanes. Hence my medium to minimal proficiency in the following: Baseball/softball, soccer, piano, ballet, clogging, hockey, rugby, cross country, clarinet, colorguard (the flag twirling one), swimming, guitar. My newest is calligraphy.
5. If you give me a choice I will almost always choose blue or 7.
6. The only bone I’ve broken is my nose. But I’ve sprained my left ankle and my right wrist.
7. I have a fascination with dying my hair, but it usually always turns a coppery red in a month or two no matter what color I dye it.
8. I can seal off my nose with my upper lip—helps keep water out of my nose while swimming.
9. I’m really bad at keeping my clothes cleaned up. They tend to accumulate in a pile somewhere in the room where there is less traffic.
10. I really like peeling off the stickers on deodorant and sticking them to mirrors. I don’t really have a good reason either.
11. I’ve been to 11 different countries: USA, Mexico, China, Iceland, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Czech Republic, Slovakia, & Hungary.
12. I’ve never weighed more than 10 lbs more than I did in high school. Yay for speedy metabolisms, hate me if you will. My weight can also change up to 10 lbs in a day.
13. 13 Was my soccer number and I’m not superstitious of it. I’m pretty excited for tomorrow! Friday the 13th!
14. I had two nicknames in high school: Goober and Zaza. (And I know where the term “nickname” comes from…)
15. I was a morning person growing up. Early morning seminary was never a problem for me. Now I can’t seem to get out of bed in the morning, but I still can’t do much after 10pm.
16. I always throw myself birthday parties.
17. I’d rather be too warm than too cold any day. But if I spend too much time in the hot sun, I get heat rash.
18. Paper gives me the hibijibies if my hands don’t have the right amount of oils on them…so…most of the time. Newspaper is the worst.
19. I love shoes, and I will never have enough of them.
20. I have to eat when I am hungry, or it is not a pretty sight.
21. I love calendars. I ask for one every Christmas. I just love seeing what day it is, and the pretty picture that goes with the month.
22. If I’m around anyone with any contagious sickness, I will catch it. The most obnoxious is a cold b/c w/o fail I will get a sinus infection. I also tend to get food poisoning from just looking at food that’s contaminated.
23. If I could go anywhere in the world, it’d be Vienna, Austria.
24. My first word was “juice”
25. I still sleep with my adopted “blankie” (My bunny rabbit blanket was lost in the abyss of “sewing” so I adopted a new one)

I like 7 and blue too! You better run a half marathon! I'll do the Provo River Half with you in the summer. Wanna?

I sent you a thank you card, but it was returned back to me saying there was no such address. Maybe I wrote it down wrong. I don't know. But, hopefully I can get it to you sometime.
