Five Things…

…You Didn’t Know About Me. I have been tagged!! Yvo from The Feisty Foodie tagged me for the “Five Things You Didn’t Know About Me” thing that’s going around (I think it’s contagious!), so here I am with my five things. I have been thinking about it all day, so here’s what I came up with!

  1. I have had plastic surgery. I know, it sounds really superficial, but I promise I’m not! I was in a car accident two years ago and broke my nose and caved in a small section of my forehead, so the plastic surgery (I got a nose job! Hehe) was to repair my face. It was the worst experience I have ever had, (well, I’m sure the car accident was worse, but I have no memory of it) so I can’t understand people who want to get plastic surgery!!!
  2. I have a birthmark that looks like a butterfly on my leg a few inches below my right hip. It’s interesting because for some unknown reason my friends have always associated me with butterflies and I have danced the part of a butterfly a few times. πŸ™‚
  3. I am incredibly shy. I don’t like being around a lot of people, and if I am in a room with you, I almost definitely will not start a conversation with you. Not because I don’t like you, just because I am afraid of bothering you. I’m weird like that. πŸ™‚ But if you talk to me first, then I’m glad to have a conversation with you! πŸ™‚
  4. I met Son ballroom dancing. We had both tried out for a ballroom dance company at our university (he was a grad student at the time, I was an undergraduate) so we had to rehearse together. He thought I was older than I actually was (he was very surprised when he found out my actual age), and as he says, very down to earth. Hehe. We don’t dance anymore, (I wish we did, but we have no time!) but let me tell you, he is easily the best dance partner I have ever had! He’s a natural! πŸ™‚
  5. I apparently have a very *talented* face. Nose and ears to be more precise. I can move each of my ears by itself, and I can twitch my nose like a bunny, kind of like Anne Hathaway in the Princess Diaries movies. I can twitch one nostril at a time too. Generally the reaction I get is either “You’re a freak!” or “Cool!!! Do it again!”

So there are my Five Things You Didn’t Know About Me. Yvo was right… it is difficult!

I tag:
Ralph from Damn Ralph
and I re-tag Yvo from The Feisty Foodie because I want to know what that last thing you thought of was. πŸ˜‰

    You… you can’t do that! I can’t be re-tagged!!! I can just tell you… hahaha. Thanks for participating! (I meant to email those I tagged, but I completely forgot… doh!) And wow, your #1 sounds terrifying (I wouldn’t get plastic surgery for fun either!, we were talking about it last night over dessert), but thank god you’re okay and everything is okay now. *shudders*

    I’ll go post that last thing I thought of… in the comments section πŸ˜› of my post!

    Hehe ok, fine, I’ll let you slide… πŸ˜€ (I just went over there and read it πŸ˜‰ )

    The surgery wasn’t so much terrifying (I had just been drugged up in the hospital for a week and was still pretty out of it) so much as really really unpleasant. My face swelled up really badly so my eyes were swollen almost shut and I couldn’t open my mouth very much. Thus the overnight stay in the hospital was horrible because I kept calling the nurses and they wouldn’t come… so I had to figure out how to get to the bathroom by myself. It was a very long night, especially because I was hooked up to an IV and they were dripping liquid into me all night. Ugh. No fun!

    I would just like to confirm the fact that you are indeed a freak, (referring to your fifth diddlybop about you…and you in general). And dude. You totally forgot about the eyebrows. Whats with that?

    *sigh* …what would you ever do without me to keep you in line?
