Interesting Stuff

My friend Robin challenged me on her blog to share 8 interesting things people don't know about me. I confess that I was lying in bed last night trying to think of things to reassure myself that I am, in fact, interesting. =) Here's what I came up with: 1. I have been snorkeling with sea turtles. 2. I like watching "Cops" on TV. It's not that it's entertaining so much as it's enthralling. It never ceases to amaze me what people will say to get out of trouble. 3. I wrote and sold a poem about firefighters to a company that makes those cheesy plaques you can buy in gift stores. And, yes, the poem was cheesy. 4. I played in the snow in the middle of July (on top of a mountain in Vancouver, BC). 5. I have never seen any of the original Star Wars movies, and I don't feel the need to. 6. I was the fourth-grade spelling bee champ of Kincaid Elementary School, and I still remember the word I missed in the school bee: e-m-b-a-r-r-a-s-s-e-d. 7. In college, I was a summer camp counselor at Camp Sandmann at Lake Allatoona in Georgia, and it was the most physically exhausting job I have ever had, but I loved it. 8. I played flute in my high school marching band. So maybe you learned something new about me. This is fun! I tag Ashley S. and Britney H. to go next!
