I'm it?


I've been tagged by Angela to post eight random facts about myself.

I have to post these rules before I give you the facts:

Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
People who are tagged need to write their own blog (about their eight things) and post these rules.
At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.

Now the nitty gritty:

1. Both my parents are psychology professors. Makes for an interesting childhood.

2. I was three years into my Biochem PhD when I found out I was pregnant. My major professor fired me when I told her and I didn't really care too much. It was a lot of hard work and late nights wasted, though.

3. I love, love, love fried okra. It has to be pan fried coated with cornmeal. The battered kind is good but just not the same.

4. I lived in England for a short time 20 years ago. I was in college there and I had a blast. I still miss the English breakfasts with a nice hot tea.... mmmm... fried egg, toast, beans, tomatoes, and rashers (bacon). OR some scones, clotted cream, and jam (but that is really a cream tea, not breakfast, exactly). Delish.

5. This summer I got to meet in person another preemie Mom that I met on a message board. It was great to get together face to face after talking for so long online. I also got to meet her little girl... absolutely gorgeous, precious little one. I'm going to try to rope them both into meeting us next summer at Sesame Place for a family outing. And this time I'll remember to take pictures... DOH!

6. I absolutely love old family names. William is named after both Grandfathers, his Dad, his Great Grandmother, and two of his Great Grandfathers. Margaret is named after both Grandmothers.

7. My husband and and I have only known each other for 4.5 years. I had sworn off dating right before I met him. Haha...

8. I'm three degrees of Kevin Bacon.

I tag these folks, if you have time (I tag more than eight. I dare you to stop me.):

Tiffany and ~K~... consider yourselves tagged.

I don't even know if I have 8 people to tag. LOL! I'll just have to be a rebel like you and not do the right amount.

p.s.-I don't think I've ever seen a pic of you, and that's a great one!

p.p.s.-still want that bumbo?

Just saw this! Will post soon. God can I even think of 8 things?

Emily said...

Ok, if Tiffany and K have blogs why was I not informed of this? I can keep a secret too, guys!

Emily, both posted on threads ages ago and I just bookmarked. I'm sure they aren't trying to keep private from YOU! ;)
