10 Things You Don't Know About Me

I didn't think I could come up with 10 things that were little-known facts about me, but I managed, so here they are:

1. I've still haven't been to the new Ikea. I want to check it out but I just haven't gone.

2. I don't like BBQ ribs - or any kind of ribs - or really any meat that comes on a bone. Too much work for so little meat.

3. I took voice lessons in high school. I competed in UIL (scored a 1) and sang in German and Italian.

4. My younger brother learned to ride his bike before me. I was scared to learn. My dad finally made me. And I was really glad he did - my brother and I had some fun times riding our bikes together.

5. Casey is the first (and only) guy I've kissed.

6. I played The Cat in the Hat in an Odyssey of the Mind competition in grade school. We wrote the play ourselves (as are the rules) and made up a song about Dr. Seuss to the tune of "Must be Santa, Santa Claus."

7. I have sat on the back of an ostridge while visiting S. Africa with my family. I did not get to ride it for safety reasons (I was 10).

8. I become seasick while watching home videos.

9. I hated babysitting as a kid. I did it occasionally, but I really didn't like it at all. I like it just fine now.

10. I spent the night in a train station one time (with 3 friends) while traveling from Bologna to Florence, Italy. This was during my study-abroad time in Oxford. Oh, it was a long night!

Did you feel compelled to add that you like babysitting okay now since you've done that for us and I would have felt bad if I knew that you didn't like it? :)

No, but I thought you might think that!

Sorry Rachel, but I am thinking that you have not had the right kind of ribs to say "too much work for so little meat". I had some at Red Hot and Blue Sunday and the meat just fell off the bone (no work), and I was stuffed (lot's of meat) If you ever want to give it another try, consult Edd Eason for where the best ribs are, he is a connoisseur.

You'll have to excuse me for my ignorance, but is a score of 1 good or bad?
