Wednesday, March 14, 2007I've been tagged.
Sinead from Breastfeeding Mums tells me that it's time to reveal a little bit about myself (which is ironic really...for a person that tells the whole world about her breasts on a daily basis...) so here I go with five things you might not have known about me.
1.) I was a competitive shooter through high school and college. I shot .22 caliber rifle and air rifle for about 10 years. I was actually pretty good too. I was one of the top two female shooters in my state and competed in the Junior Olympics in Colorado Springs my Junior year of high school. I shot for Ohio State as an NCAA athelete and I even qualified for the Olympic Trial three times. I'm also a certified coach and still head off every summer to help out at the National Junior Rifle Camp.
2.) I had a pet chicken growing up. That's right, a pet chicken. We lived in the city, but had a fenced in yard. One year dad bought us 9 baby chicks for easter. They grew up and it turns out seven were roosters. Those went off to live in the "stew pot" farm and we kept the hens. One died about two years later, but one of then lived for 10 years. (did you know chickens lived TEN years?) Her name was Fluffy and she always came when I called her. Not many pets give you yummy brown eggs every day.
3.) I type nearly 100 words a minute. In fact, I've been clocked at 120 words per minute. That should serve as some explanation for those of you who wonder how the heck I write so much each day. (Between my two blogs I average about 5000-6000 words of writing per day.)
4.) I'm an evangelical conservative Christian. Yep, that's right...and you thought I was a big old hippie liberal, didn't ya? ;) I'm a registered Republican though I have libertarian leanings. That said, I part ways with my political party on a variety of issues. Any one up for launching The Lactivist party? Ohh...wait...how bout just HAVING a Lactivist Party. We could all sit around and see how much chocolate we have to eat before our nurslings start getting chocolate milk.
5.) I am NOT Supermom, I mearly play one on TV. Seriously, this point can never be driven home enough to my readers. I may appear to have it together...but my house is a wreck (I should start posting a pic of my living room now and then), the laundry is piled up as high as the washer in the basment and I still havent' cleaned up the jar of hot pepers that tipped over in the fridge three days ago. Ok, so maybe I'm a "super" mom and just a lousy housekeeper. ;)
So, let's see...who to tap, who to tap. I've got all these new readers and I know so little about them...so I tap...Labor Nurse, Evil Cake Lady (mmm...tell us about cake Evil Cake lady...), Janis Fan, Jessie Hawkins (cause cool! she's a Master Herbalist!) and Cairo Mama even though she isn't "new."
