Six Things

Marie from Marie's Muses and A Year From Oak Cottage (www.ayearfromoakcottage.blogspot.com) tagged me yesterday to write a six things meme. As instructed, I have to post the rules and tag six people. Invisible Friends, if you thought I was crazy before--you have no idea.

Here are the Rules:
1. Link to the person that tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself.
4. Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs. ( I don't know six random people)
5. Let each random person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website.


Here goes!

1) When I was five and in kindergarten, we had to dress up for career day as what we aspired to be. I wore my prettiest pink dress with the most ruffles and lace I could find and told everyone I wanted to be a Hawaiian Lady. I didn't know what a Hawaiian lady did, I just knew I didn't want to be a teacher, a nurse, a doctor or anything they had told us we should be. It wasn't until I hit fourth grade I realized I wanted to be an author and illustrator. The author part is progress...

2) I've seen ghosts twice. The first time, I was at my grandmother's home in Oklahoma. She lived in a ex-private hospital because my mother had four sisters and a brother. It was a house, but you could still see where curtains between rooms had been hung and medical things had been. We had to sleep in the library, which used to be the operating room. The only people in the house were me, my sister, my mother and my male 10-year-old cousin. I heard two men's voices talking over me in the middle of the night, waking me up. At first, I thought it was the television. Then I realized they were directly over me and speaking medical terms that a 12-year-old (me) wouldn't have known. I told the ghosts to go away and went back to sleep. There was also the ghost of a small boy who would ride his tricycle up and down the hall, and I would hear the wheels squeaking. One of my cousins actually saw him.

I'll save the other time for another story. It involves a Ouija board and a sleepover. But it's true, and it'll terrify you.

3) When I was in first grade, my friends and I were trying to dig a hole to China in the sandbox. We spent a month digging until we hit clay. Then the kindergartners came and filled up our hole. We were not pleased, but we started over. We never made it to China, but we found plenty of Earthworms. Ernie was not there.

4) The other day I realized my eyes had changed from a deep blue to the blue-green my father has. I then realized I was starting to get up at 6 a.m. on weekends and go to bed at nine, just like I used to make fun of him for.

I am terrified.

5) Before we got the babies, I worried if the original babies in Austin would get their feelings hurt. It literally kept me awake at night for weeks. Instead of worrying about cancer, politics or war, I worry about dogs' feelings and whether I have enough eggs in the fridge to make both omelets and pancakes because stopping at the store is a crisis.

I never said I wasn't crazy.

6) I can't figure out if I dream in color. It's very strange. I also tend to think in a narrators voice like there's a screen words running across it and pictures. If you say apple, I think of the word apple and then a picture in my mind. Everyone else I've asked sees things in pictures. I don't know why I see things in words first.

I hope you enjoyed it! I tag....well, you'll just have to be surprised!

Ohh Ducky I love these things about you!!! I thought I saw a ghost once, but am not sure. I did have a terrifying ouija board experience when I was 15 which was out of this world and quite scary. I would not have one in my house now, ever. I can really understand you not wanting to hurt animals feelings. I love my jess. She is our little girl and although I would love to have another dog or a cat even I would not do that to her because I know she would be hurt. She was abused as a baby and loves us so much. I would never want her to think that we were replacing her or anything! Ok, I've written a novel here, so will end this NOW! tee hee
