Six Weird Things About Me

February24


Here’s a little meme going around the internet. If nothing else its an excuse to get writing and I was tagged by my lovely friend Gracie. So here goes:

Six Weird Things about Me

1. My epilepsy was cured by my kids! I had epileptic seizures. They lessened with my first pregnancy and disappeared all together with my second. My neurologist said it happens sometimes, but I think its weird.

2. I went to a LOT of schools! One room school house, Fort Bridger, WY - Mountain View Elementary, Mountain View, WY - Cole Elementary, Boise, ID - Eagle Elementary, Eagle, ID - Campus Elementary, Boise, ID - East Jr. High, Boise ID - Orville Wright Jr. High, Westchester, CA - Lindero Canyon Middle School, Agoura, CA - Agoura High School, Agoura, CA - Pierce College, Winnetka, CA - Santa Monica College, Santa Monica, CA - Pasadena City College, Pasadena, CA

3. I played Mae West in a Murder Mystery Dinner Theater production in Beverly Hills, CA. Its true. I shoved my poor torso into a crazy (and considerably padded) corset that made me about an inch taller than normal. The play was mediocre, I was horrible.

4. I crashed my car into a car pulled over on the side of the freeway - and I wasn’t even drunk! This is a bad way to find out you have epilepsy.

5. Found out I had an older sister when I was 14. Yup! Just like on TV. She is just like us and yet so different. Sisters rule!

6. One of the Beatles hit on me! I was working at a little shop in The Beverly Center. George Harrison came in with his son and I waited on them. George was very flirty and asked me to dinner - I politely declined citing my upcoming wedding, but I secretly felt bad for all the fanatic girls in black and white newsreels who would have screamed and fainted have George (the quiet one!) ask them out.

Hope these are weird enough!

    I will attempt this only at Factgirl’s request:

    1. I too had a seizure while getting my Bat Mitzvah dressed hemmed-I would like to say it was because my brain was opposed to pink; however, it was because I ate only a piece of cheese that day.

    2. I love Barbies but only when they are in their boxes. When I played with Barbies as a child, I tended to hack their hair-they are best left in boxes.

    3. I did help hide an Israeli soldier’s gun when I was on a high school trip to Israel. He was insulting us because we were girls and when he wasn’t paying attention, we took his gun and hid it under our seats on the bus.

    4. I voted for Arnold Schwartzaneggar (sp?) to get rid of the increased car reg fees (this was wierd and very very stupid of me).

    5. My original goal in life was to become a general in the US Army and fight for a woman’s right to fight in combat-I even had a huge ROTC/Army scholarship for college.

    6. I have bungee jumped-three times in one day and backwards. We hiked 4 hours through the mountains and a creek to get to the “bridge to nowhere.” I jumped backwards because I didn’t want to see where I was jumping.
