I've been tagged

Rosalind at Keep Working, Girlfriend tagged me for the meme challenge. This is the second time within a two week period that I've been tagged. While I am very appreciative, I have to confess, it was really hard to come up with seven more interesting facts about myself without stepping onto some psychological land mines or outright lying.

For readers new to the meme challenge, here are the rules:

1-Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog
2-Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird
3-Tag 6 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs
4- Let them know they are TAGGED by leaving a comment on their blog

7 Facts About Me:

  1. I have never gotten a parking ticket.
  2. I am genetically incapable of being late for anything. I usually arrive at least 15 minutes early. For me arriving on time feels like I’m five minutes late.
  3. I speak five languages (Spanish, French, Portuguese, Hebrew, English) – two of them badly.
  4. I used to ace my college classes by writing class notes in tiny script on index cards and then memorizing each card so that I could recall the visual image of the sentences on the cards during an exam.
  5. I play one musical instrument, the guitar, badly.
  6. I have been in a women’s group that has met monthly for over fifteen years. I don’t know where or who I would be without these amazing women.
  7. One of my best teenage memories is being alone in the house during a power outage in the winter. I made a fire in the fireplace and lay down on the floor next to my dog and read Alice in Wonderland out loud to her until we both fell asleep.

How does one never get a parking ticket? This is astounding!

Alicia said...

Is the women's group an organization? I'd like to hear more about that.

Thanks for tagging me. It's fun to step outside the illness for awhile and talk about other stuff!

Therapydoc - never getting a parking ticket is not something I'm proud of. It's a substitute for not being able to have control over the universe.

Alicia - it is fun to step outside the illness. I'll look forward to reading your memes. And my women's group is not part of any organization -- it's just a bunch of good women who made a commitment to each other to meet and talk from the heart.
