My friend Amy tagged me! I am supposed to list 8 random things about myself that you may not know. Here it goes:

  1. I've had random jobs over the last years ranging from secretary-dental assistant-pool and spa sales! But my most favorite job was staying home with my boys.
  2. I secretly want to be an actress...either as a cast member on The Office or even as a writer for SNL. Both would be nice. Oh, or as a female spy like Sydney Bristow on Alias! That would be great!
  3. I do not like going to church district events and see my future as a pastor's wife. I try very hard to maintain my youth and style so I don't fit into the "mold" of many Nazarene wives. Ahhh...I'm doomed!
  4. At least yearly I completely change my hair style-cut and color. It's crazy, but why not if I can right?
  5. I'm a huge fan of Animal Planet, Discover Channel and TLC which makes me deathly afraid of being attacked by a shark. My first time snorkeling (which I was completely stoked for)...I had what some would say was a panic attack in the water which in my mind was not good...I thought I was ringing the dinner bell for all sharks in the area "ahem, ahem, calling all sharks, calling all sharks...flailing young woman on the surface...your attention needed in this matter." I was also afraid I would run into coral and cut my skin and then I would start bleeding and we all know that sharks can smell blood miles away!!...did I say it was terrible. I finally did calm down (thanks to Shawn) and really enjoyed what time I had left in the water.
  6. I had a crush on my 10th grade math teacher, Mr. Brackman. My senior year I had an opportunity to be his student aid but turned it down because I thought he had a crush on me and that freaked me out.
  7. I wish I had a passion for running.
  8. I hate shopping, but love buying new things...but then I feel guilty.
  9. Bonus-It took me like a month to think up all of this.

So, now I'm supposed to tag my friends. Instead of doing that, if you feel like participating then go for it.

Brook, I knew you wanted to be an actress! I just did not know you wanted to be a spy. If a shark got would regret it, I could just see you doing some kind of Sydney Bristow spy torture to the belly of a would spit you right back out. LOL! A typical Nazarene's Pastors wife - you could never be! You will always be the cool stylin' chick you are right now! Just don't start trippin'! LOL

We must be doing pretty good in the communication arena. I knew most of this. I even felt like you may have wanted to be an actres... I could totally see you as a spy (ha). But number 6 was completely new to me. I couldn't help but laugh out loud imagining that, ha. Love ya' girl!
