Tag, You're It

I've been tagged. No, it's not a toe tag, it's just a game. So, here are the rules.

1). Link to the person who tagged you and post the rules on your blog.

2). Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself.

3). Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.

4). Let each person know that they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Okay, let's see if I can think of 7 things that I'm willing to share.

1.)  One time, when I was around 7 years old, my sister and I convinced a bunch of kids that we lived in an igloo, had a pet killer whale and rode a polar bear to school. (None of that was true by the way.) We were living in Alaska at the time and we were visiting my grandparents in California. We were sick of all the misconceptions that people had about our lives, so we played along with the kids next door, just to see how dumb they really were.

2.) I love spaghetti, but don't care much for lasagna. Most people seem to assume that if you like one you'll like the other, but they really are 2 different things people.

3.) I used to be a minister.

4.) The guy that I had my first date ever with turned out to be gay. He came out of the closet on

5.) I went to my prom alone, after my date bailed on me a few days before the prom. While I was there I ended up inheriting my friend's date, since they had a huge fight. It turned out that he was gay. There seems to be a pattern developing here.

6.) I didn't get my driver's license until I was 20 years old. I started trying to get it when I was 16, but I couldn't pass the driving test. It was until I spent a summer in Wyoming that I finally passed a driving test. If you're having problems getting your license I highly recommend going there. the test took less than 20 minutes and it included making 3 right turns, turning around in a driveway and making 3 left turns.

7.) I lived in Arkansas for a year and fell in love with it. I know that this likely means that I'm a redneck, but it's a gorgeous state. And they have 4 distinct seasons, which has always been a requirement that I've had for my dream home. I loved it enough there that I wouldn't have moved back to California if my sister hadn't needed me so badly.

Okay, there's 7 facts. That was harder than I thought it would be. I'm only tagging one person, since she's the only one that I 
know well enough to feel comfortable tagging. I've known her 
since junior high, so she probably could have done a better job answering for me than I did. I don't know how to do a link on here, but her blog is linked on my sidebar. It's called Mom's the Word. Go check her out.
