I *HATE* These Things…

Taken August 11, 2008 with Canon PowerShot A550

…but Suzi tagged me with a meme, and I’ll do it because she kinda scares me (she drinks MOLD!).

Before I get to that, though, I would like to point out the peacefulish picture above. That’s how life has been lately, although I’m pretty much either at work, or asleep. That’s right – I said asleep. Insomnia no longer plagues me.

I think it helps that I’m outside a lot, running a lot, eating more…. And I get to dance at work (I don’t dance alone – I make everybody dance). I’m finally working a “Dream Job” again…. This is the one I dreamed of having when I was 4. Guess I’m late with pretty much everything.

I haven’t had any time to write – I only just got my little Basement Loft back in order after three weeks of doing NO housework other than laundry. It took me less than an hour. I moved to the right place, didn’t I? πŸ™‚

Okay, so on to the dreaded meme. I’m supposed to come up with 7 random things about myself that few, if any, people know. I don’t think there’s 7 random things about me that *I* know, truthfully, but I’ll give it a shot (I told you that Suzi scares me, right?).

1) I have one eyebrow. Or I would have one eyebrow, if I didn’t delete the bit between what would make two eyebrows.

2) I’ve lived in 22 different places (abodes, not cities) in my lifetime. That’s equivalent to moving house once every 1.9 years. Pretty bad for someone who doesn’t adapt to change easily, huh?

3) I shaved my head when I was 35. I told everybody I did it for charity (which was true, really – hey, I raised $500!), but really it was because I had always wanted to see what I’d look like, and the charity-thing gave me a good excuse to do so.

4) I’m going to shave my head again when I’m 50. You can hold me to that (…and this time, I might keep it shaved.).

5) After I moved into my first apartment here in the Sault, I lived in my claw-foot bathtub. When I wasn’t at work, I was in a hot bath with a book. I even ate my meals in the bathroom.

6) My first marriage wasn’t supposed to be a marriage. I was asked to have a child, not get married. I only got the “married” part because I wouldn’t have a child out of wedlock at the age of 19. My husband never got the child part, so I guess I didn’t hold up my end of the bargain.

7) My one and only child was born out of wedlock. We didn’t get married until two months after she was born, and then we got married through the mail. I’m a bad, BAD girl, I guess. πŸ˜‰

Now I’m supposed to tag a bunch of other people. I’m not going to, though.

So there.

  1. I hope you start a shaved head trend, because how great would it be if everyone went around bald? Getting ready in the morning would take about 3 seconds.

    I love the photo, and even more, I love that that is how your life feels right now. Nice.

    Les Says: It DID take about 3 seconds to get ready – I loved it! Pass a hand over the “hair” and call it done.

    I love that photo, too. It’s a nice memory of a great day, and absolutely portrays my current state of being. VERY nice…

  2. A walk in the woods keeps me grounded and I love to be out there…almost as much as I like sitting in front of this computer. Such a challenge to stay either place for long!

    Glad things are going well!

    Les Says: Strange how “our” kind love to be out in the wild, and then come home and sit in the middle of all this technology and write about it, isn’t it?

  3. Dancing at work? And making coworkers do it too? That sounds like a decent job.

    I am dying to see a picture of your bald head. Did it look good? It must have looked okay if you’re gonna do it again at 50. Good for you!

    Les Says: Yes. It’s a party in the parking lot all shift long. I get paid to conversate and dance.

    The “bald-headed” pic will have to wait until the next shave, I’m afraid. As far as I know, only one picture was taken of me the last time, and I don’t have it. I didn’t have a camera then (But I DID look right cool.).

  4. That is a good random list. It’s probably better than most I’ve read. And no, you’re not bad, but it’s funny after the one above it.

    Les Says: Thanks, Louise. And I was going for the “funny”, so I’m glad it came out that way.

  5. Hey there, I love a good long soak as well.

    I have given you The Butterfly Award-it’s over at London Thoughts if you want to pick it up.

    Les Says: Wow! Many thanks, Descartes. I’ll be right over!

    Pssst…! Niiice! I’ve stashed it in my Trophy Room. πŸ˜€

  6. Les, everything sounds great! Dancing at work is such a plus! I am so envious of your courage in shaving your head. I have always wanted to but was way too afraid!


    Les Says: Well then! I guess maybe I oughtta just might spend my 50th birthday jaunting down to visit you, Denise… We’ll shave heads on the Buddy System. πŸ˜‰ You’ve got a few years yet to get up your gumption…

  7. So, I have to get a head shave to merit a visit? uhhhhh, no. I get bad grumpy just growing out a regular HAIRCUT! Thanks for getting random with us…

    Les Says: No… I’ll let you keep YOUR hair. Besides, I’m hoping I get down there to see you long before I hit the 50 mark.
