25 Random Things About Me.

Ok I got tagged in Facebook and this is the sort of level my brain can cope with just now. I am supposed to tag 25 more people, but I don't like to do that. If you are reading this and want to give it a try consider yourself tagged.

Rules: Once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it's because I want to know more about you.

1. If I had more time I would learn how to knit, sew, make soap, and home made candles. I love making things.
2. I can't just sit and watch tv, I must be either making jewelry, going through the mail, updating my website. I hate sitting around doing nothing. I think I have a slight case of OCD.
3. I have insomnia. It drives me crazy that Chad falls asleep 30 seconds after he gets in bed, and I lay awake for hours wishing my mind would calm down.
4. I have no idea how or why I majored in Finance, and then made a career out of it. I still don't know what I want to do when I grow up, but this isn't it!
5. I wish I could win the lottery (although I hardly ever play) at least once a week so I can follow my bliss.
6. I had bright red hair in high school. I worked as a hair dresser's assistant and colored and permed people's hair (with no license or training to do this).
7. Sushi is my favorite food.
8. Flavored Vodka and club soda is my drink of choice.
9. I am the worst at remembering people's names, I will forget someone's name as soon as they are introduced, however, I can remember almost every horses' name I have ever met.
10. I broke my sternum in college.
11. I was stuck on the freeway once in a car chase which ended with cops surrounding my car with guns drawn. The guy jumped out of his car ran across the freeway and got away.
12. I cannot understand why I am the only one who wants to leave work at the end of the day. No matter what time it is (or what company I am at), I feel like I am always the first to leave. Do these people have no life outside of work???
13. I am a compulsive note-taker and list maker, even when I have no need to take notes for anything. I find it comforting for some reason — probably because my memory is so bad.
14. I'm from New Jersey and I don't have an accent.
15. I haven't had cable tv for the past 10 years.
16. I think I might be fundamentally incapable of following a recipe. Even when I’m making something for the very first time, I’m drawn to experimentation.
17. I don't want children, never have, I only babysat once as a teenager and I hated it. I'm missing that maternal gene.
18. I have two tattoos
19. Public speaking is one of my worst fears
20. I am SO afraid of heights I don't even like looking down out the window of my fifth floor office building.
21. I'm far from a creature of habit. I like random. I try to do something random every day. Keeps me on my toes.
22. I love living in California, but it’s made me soft when it comes to fluctuations in the temperature. I wear a sweater if it drops below 85 or else I'm cold.
23. I have four step brothers
24. I HATE bell peppers (yes even the red, yellow and orange ones), but love jalapenos
25. I’ve never been hospitalized overnight. I guess that’s a pretty good track record given some of the less than brilliant decisions I’ve made over the course of my life.

I was also tagged on Facebook and put mine up on my blog. I have things set up so that my blog automatically becomes a note on Facebook, so I just went in and tagged that.

So, for what it is worth here are my 25 things about me...tagged

Ah yes, the dreaded 25 list. I got tagged by a few old friends on facebook and finally felt compelled to write my list.
Loved reading yours and had several in common.

I really Loved this Tara!
I may do this one..usually like to get tagged..but I am soooo behind right now for the award things!

I am so compulsive/addictive that I have made soaps/jewlery/knitted scarves and takes me over and I just burn out. Though, am told I am very good at all of it.
Ha, can't believe they had you doing stuff without a hair, horse names I do remeber better as wel and public speaking...just shoot me now!
I was in choir for years and had to stand in the very back row, against the directors wishes(I am short) for my fear of being in front.
Thanks..that was fun! I will have to come back and re -read again.

I've been wanting to be tagged with THIS 25 Things list over on Facebook...I even put it as one of the 25 Pet Peeves or Things that Annoy Me List someone DID tag me with (as in...No one has tagged me with the 25 Random things list :-( ). But you putting it here allows me to do it. I don't know, guess I just need to get some things off my shoulders or something. :-|

Great list! My hubby immediately snores upon touching the pillow which makes my wodnering mind only frustrated.
But I love bell peppers.

I like the fact that no matter how old we are we can always look for what we are supposed to be when we grow up.
