Seven Random Things

Just got in from my recovery run and thought I'd better get this post done before I have to go in for my next WW shift in a little while. Especially since tomorrow starts my long week at my "real" job.

I'd like to thank Becki at The Middle Miles for giving me this award. Be sure to stop by and visit her site - she's extremely knowledgeable about running shoes. As she says herself, Becki is the Carrie Bradshaw of running shoes ;)

Ok, so now I'm supposed to write 7 random facts about myself and then tag 12 others for this award. Here goes nothing ;)

1. I have lived in Pennsylvania for exactly one year now and still haven't changed my driver's license. Worse than that, I've been married for 2 years and haven't yet changed my driver's license or my social security card. I am the queen of procrastination.

2. I'm terrified of praying mantises. I have no problems with spiders, snakes, or any of the "normal" creepy critters, but I DESPISE praying mantises. I think it stems from a movie I saw when I was little... The Deadly Mantis.

3. I have lived in 10 states in the United States, and even lived briefly in Germany when I was 6. And I'm not an "Army Brat." My mom is from Germany, and other than that we just moved a lot :)

4. I'm way more of a tomboy than a girly-girl. Every once in a while I like to get dolled up, but mostly I'm in jeans and sneakers, and/or running attire. I rarely wear make-up and when I do, it's usually just mascara and lip gloss. I've even been reprimanded at both of my jobs for not being in compliance with the dress code. Hmph!

5. I used to build computers, web sites, and do a lot of graphic design work. I was very tech savvy. Now I can barely remember HTML codes.  And as I'm sure you can tell by my blog, graphic design has gone by the wayside as well.

6. I used to be heavily into gaming. My addiction was this one text-based MUD that I would play for many many hours (sometimes days) straight. I was even known to call out of work if there was an "event" going on in-game that I didn't want to miss.  Sometimes I think about checking if any of my old friends are still playing it, but I know that with my addictive personality I better not ;)
I'll have to do number 7 and my 12 tags on another post since I'm out of time and have to get back to work. Ugh! Never enough time in the day!

Thanks for playing! Even if you didn't have time to finish. ;)

I forgot the password on the MMORPG that I was addicted to in college, which was probably the best thing I could have done (and I used my college email, so I can't even do a password retrieval). And I've since forbidden myself to start up any new ones. Resist! Don't log back in!

Another procrastinator eh? We'd make a fine team. :)
