Emmental - Swiss cheese

So, I’ve been really busy and haven’t had a chance to post for a while.  I realized just how busy when I took a look at my last post and saw that I was supposed to give eleven random facts about myself but didn’t. Why eleven? I have no idea, but that didn’t even register when I was doing the post…

All right. I’m digressing again. To finish the last post properly, here are eleven random facts about me:

1.  I am fourth-generation former military. My son makes five.

2.  I once met George Bush Jr. before he was president and had a chance to talk to him. His wife was nice. He was an idiot.

3. I am “double-jointed,” especially in my hands, elbows and shoulders. My legs used to be the same way but aren’t any more because I’m two seconds away from officially becoming ancient.

4. Every time I have the gall to think that I’ve figured something out, God or the prophets or Murphy (you know, the Murphy’s Law guy) smites me (smotes me?) to make sure that I don’t get above my raisin’.

5. Water follows me everywhere, especially into my basement where it keeps finding new places to drip.

6. I’ve eaten prairie oysters and enjoyed them. For those of you who don’t know, prairie oysters are bulls’ balls.

7.  I have a small extra rib on one side, colloquially known as “Adam’s rib.”

8. I like to eat Swiss cheese and pickled beets. Together. I know. It’s weird.

9. I’m half English and half French. This should make me the perfect little Canadian but what it really means is that I can shrug and have a stiff upper lip at the same time.

10. My favourite colour is red. I like lots of other colours, too, but red rules!

11. I am NOT a morning person. I could do a whole post on this one. I hate mornings.  They’re just so, so bright, and, and, bright. And I don’t like it when people around me leap out of bed and act all perky … see, there’s a rant coming.

Dadahhh! Done!

  1. I can’t stand mornings, either. In fact, if it was not for coffee I’d never break out of that morning stupor. I’ve taught 8am labs, and at that time more than any other, I can hear words coming out of my mouth, but have no idea what they are and what they mean! I’m pretty sure the students looking in my direction feel exactly the same.

  2. 1. – Interesting. 2. – Laughed 3. – Eww lol 4. – smotes? 5. – haven’t you got that fixed YET? 6. – vomit 7. – interesting. 8. – no not weird, I east salt on cheese sometimes oh & rollmops 9. -giggled. 10. – I don;t own one thing red 11. – laughed out loud and enjoyed 🙂 x

    • Rollmops? Aren’t those the rolled herrings with pickles inside and preserved in brine so that they’re nice and squishy? Prairie oysters are better – deep fired and crispy. Really.

      The water in my basement is something new from last weekend. Can you believe it? We think we may have figured it out, thankfully.

      Thanks for your great comments! 🙂

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
