Six Unimportant Things About Me

I got tagged for this one by Brie at Cupid's Chokehold.

I guess I've already done numbers 1 and 2 so on to number 3!

Rules:


1. Link back to the person who tagged you.

2. Post the rules on your blog

3. Share six unimportant things about you

4. Tag six random people at the end of your blog entry

5. Let the tagged people know by leaving a comment on their blog.



1. I am a coffee addict. I always have coffee with me in the morning. I carry a cup to work, my students give me Starbucks gift cards, and my husband has bought me numerous travel mugs because I leave them everywhere.

2. I hate white walls. I think every wall in my house is some color. I can think of blue, purple, green, clay, tan, and a variety of stenciled and sponge painted treatments.

3. I can reupholster simple projects like dining room chairs. I'm a whiz with a staple gun.

4. I love Disneyland. My personal best is 35 rides in one day (leaving at 7:00 not closing) and never waiting in a line more than 30 minutes.

5. I have heard my name called across Las Vegas casinos, Disneyland, California Adventure, and a variety of airports by numerous students both past and present.

6. I have been in the first ten rows of a Bruce Springsteen concert, dancing on the chair the whole time, and have been to an acoustic Bruce concert - just the man and his guitar.

OK .... now I'm supposed to tag people, but I don't like that part so ... if you're reading this and want to play along ... consider yourself tagged.

An acoustic Bruce concert? I'm so green with envy! I bet that was truly awesome.

My husband loves Disneyland too. He's really into the history of the park and is a walking trivia game.

I'm with you on the white walls. They are so blah. Puls I think that painting the walls personalizes a house, makes it a home.

I wonder if it's possible that we were at the same Bruce concert?

Trish said...

Fun! We are in a rental house right now and I miss my painted walls so badly... And 35 rides??? What a day!

Literary - I'm not that good at the trivia. My one claim to fame is that my father-in-law worked the opening day of Disneyland as an usher for celebrities.

Brie and Trish - That's why my husband and I bought our first house. Our landlord, at the time, wouldn't let us paint one wall blue even though we promised to paint it white when we moved!

Dewey - Absolutely:)
