Egan asked, a while back, what is unique about me. I am hoping that these little pieces of information answer his question as, given that I am who I am, answering it is more difficult than it might be for another.
That said, if you have questions, ask away. And now...
Ba Doozie tagged me to write seven things about myself and tag seven more.
I enjoy giving massages though I am not overly fond of receiving them. Oh, I like my shoulders rubbed or a good foot massage once in a while, but, for the most part, I am a hands-on kind of girl.
I have found (unfunded, personally certified field study) that one can truly live off bread, cheese, chocolate, and a healthy dose of exercise and nature.
I was supposed to do an internship on the Gold Coast of Australia. I was so excited - it was the coast, Australia, and well, what is there not to like about that idea? (If you have not been to Australia, by all means, go!) But the internship fell threw. I was faced with the options of Dublin or nothing. Of course, I went to Ireland, worked with a parliamentarian, ended up meeting some great Swedes, and spent the holidays in Sweden - where I had never been. I never refuse the opportunity to travel!
There are many things that I always wanted to do - sky diving, hang gliding, to name but two. Now that I am a single parent, I am not sure that I will do them. My fear is not for my own life but that were something to happen to me, my daughter would grow up without a parent.
I am a pragmatists. I am not ethnocentric. Unless you know me well, it can appear that I have no opinions when I actually do.
I believe in honesty, perhaps, to a fault.
I am passionate (and then some)!
And one extra - I am so excited (though he might not be) as a good friend is going to be CONUS in just over a year! I have so missed being able to pick up the phone and chat with him about the state of the world, history, kids, men...everything.
And if you want to play, leave me a comment so I can read what you write!
