ME!?? Unimportant!!!???

One of my blogging and crafting heroes, Casserole, has tagged me with the challenge of sharing 6 unimportant things about myself. This could be difficult, since I'm such a narcissist I probably will believe anything I think of to be of HUGE importance. But I'll give it a shot. (Yes, that's my tongue in my cheek)

1. I wear a size 8.5 or 9 shoe, and they grew from a size 8 after I had my first child. I would have preferred that my boobs stayed bigger, but no one asked me...

2. I have a thing for men with dark hair and goatees. I just realized this after seeing Iron Man and drooling all over myself for Robert Downey, Jr. I already had a thing for the jello-knee-inducing Johnny Depp. Thankfully, Hubby meets my requirements for desireability.

3. There are some things I just have to pay brand-name prices for: Jif peanut butter, Kraft mac and cheese, Coca-Cola products, and Cottonelle t.p. Perfection just can't be duplicated.

4. I was named after a street in a southern California town where a great aunt lived. (Laurie Lane), and the gypsy woman sharing a room in the maternity ward with my mom (Michaela).

5. I hate licorice and cream corn. Seperately, not together - although that would be nasty too... I'll eat just about anything else, though. Unfortunately.

6. The first car I bought myself was a 1987 Toyota Tercel. Steel blue metallic. I guess if I still had it, it would be vintage and I could sell it on Not in the handmade area, of course - I'm sure someone would report me to the admins.

I'm going to tag my brothers, Brian and David, and a couple of my favorite bloggers - Marcy and Fria.

What??? Creamed corn is delicious! (Not with licorice.) My idea of scary food is liver and boiled okra. Gah.

Licorice is nasty! When mom eats the black jellybeans I want to gag.

However, I love fennel which tastes like licorice - so go figure.

Wow. We have so much in common! No wonder I like you.. I really like you! (Yes, you did a spectacular imitation of Sally Field.)

Black licorice is utterly repulsive. Ah, Erin! No wonder I don't like fennel!

Man... Now I have to think of six things about myself. *sigh*

Cool, Fria - were you named after a street and a gypsy too!???

I'm with you on the feet and the boobs!! My feet didn't get any bigger when I was pregnant, but they sure did get wider. Which was a problem because they were already pretty wide. As were my hips, and they also got wider. My boobs, however, ended up the same size as before but now require a LOT more support. Yay for breastfeeding!
