Versatile Blogger Award

I know you guys are tired of hearing about my awesomeness, but I just don't care!  ;)  Story of a Girl nominated me for The Versatile Blogger award, and dang it-- I'm gonna take a minute and embarrass myself toot my own horn.  Again.  Hey-- at least you're learning all sorts of strange and interesting things about the Conductor of the Crazy Train.  That has to be good for something!  (Blackmail, possibly?) 

7 (More) Random Facts About Me
  1. I can do a pretty decent impersonation of Cartman from Southpark. 
  2. I used to have THE ugliest feet on the planet.  Thanks to the modern marvels of podiatry and lots of patience from my husband, they are now much more attractive (and less painful).
  3. I always preferred math assignments over writing assignments in school, all the way through college!  Now look at me-- volunteering to write on a regular basis!  Who'dda thunk it?!
  4. I once swallowed a live goldfish on a dare.  When I was 13.  I went a whole 8 1/2 minutes before I puked!  It was a long, green 8 1/2 minutes.
  5. I used to work as a loan collection agent!  Stupidest. Job. Ever.  It's safer to work disarming bombs than it is to ask for delinquent loan payments.  I wish I could blame this error in judgment on a drinking problem, but alas, I have to admit that was not the case.
  6. Coleslaw is my favorite snackfood that isn't sugary.  
  7. I have my debit card, all my family's Social Security numbers, and all our library card numbers committed to memory, as well as our checking and savings account numbers.  It's a disease, really.  It's not like I tried or anything-- they just got stuck in there.  Don't ever let me see your CC#, I'll probably remember it too!  (That's a little spectrum-y, isn't it?  Thought so.)

Our Adventures with Riley
Frugal in WV
Caffeinated Autism Mom

  4. Thank you so much for nominating me, and congrats to you on the award! What's even more impressive, though is your ability to memorize all those numbers. I get so annoyed when I have to do a mad search for some kind of identification number when I'm in the middle of filling out a form.
