My Seven Things

I was tagged by Theta Mom and My Favorite Everything for this.  Ack, you both got me in a period of two days. How naughty of you. I’ve been tagged a lot lately, which is soo much fun, but sometimes it takes time to be a little creative.

I’ve been blogging for quite awhile now. So I have to actually search my blog to see what I have not reveled about myself. How silly is that.  I’m pretty much an open book in person, but I don’t like to tell everything on my blog, or do I?

So here’s the gist of it.  I write out SEVEN things that you do not know about me. Then, I tag SEVEN other people to write SEVEN unknown things that people don’t know about them.

P1010066

1. I have two hemangioma’s on my left arm.  I’ve had them since I was a few weeks ago.  They were bright red throughout childhood.  Now, they are more of a flesh tone color. I never got them removed because I’m left handed, and everyone was afraid of potential nerve damaged to my arm.  I didn’t wear tank tops out in public until I was in college. Every time I do wear a tank top or a shirt that shows them, I get a million questions.

Jake & Harley

2.  I have/had two cats. Angry Husband and I got two cats early in 1998 when we first got married.  We left them at my parent’s house in 2001 when we moved to an apartment complex where they did not allow cats.  I’m an very allergic to them now.  I have a sneeze fest every time I’m over at my parent’s house.

Long Hair Angry Julie

3.  I’ve had long hair. I promise.  I have no patience with my hair though. Really, it drives me crazy.  It turns into a mop when it gets long. I pretty much wear it in a ponytail.  This is why my hair is so short now, I’m quite lazy, but want somewhat of a style.

ring4. My engagement ring was lost in 2005. I wear a fake one now. We had our house for sale during the summer of 2005.  It was quite a hectic time.  Angry Kid was a newborn, I was commuting, I was working nights, and the house was for sale.  I took my wedding set with me every day to work.  I do not wear my rings at work.  I stuck my rings into the coin part of my wallet.  Late one night, I went to get change for a stamp at the Post Office.  I noticed that my wedding ring was in the wallet, but not my engagement ring. I had NEVER gotten the ring appraised or insured.  I’ve found out now that I could have made a small claim for it on my Homeowner’s Insurance even though it wasn’t appraised.  It was my 5 year Anniversary trade-up ring.  It had a high dollar value.  I can’t/won’t even think of spending that much money on a ring anytime in the near future. So I wear a fake set now.  It’s almost exactly the same as the one that was lost. Notice that I’m clutching a bottle of alcohol.  This is the only picture I could find.

Ironing Board

5. I do not know how to iron. Seriously, one of those skills that your mom is supposed to teach you. Yea, not me. I’m the “Queen of the Dry Cleaners”.  Every time I go there, they greet me with “Hello Ms. Julie!” Luckily, they are cheap.  I try to not buy things that need to be ironed or dry cleaned. Yes, we have an iron board and iron. They are hidden deep within the garage.

Edward Norton-Men's Fitness

6. I have a slight obsession with Edward Norton. I fell in love with him in American History X and Fight Club. Yum! I admit it, I have a thing for Angry White Men. I even watched Hulk just so I could see him on the big screen.

passport

7. I’ve never really traveled out of the county. Ok, so I did go to Tijuana, Mexico once with a bunch of fraternity guys and sorority sisters. But I don’t think ingesting tequila poppers really counts, does it? I feel like such a loser because we never go anywhere.  Husband and I both have jobs with opposite schedules, vacations, etc. Plus our one plane trip with Angry Kid was a complete nightmare.

and I’m tagging the following people:

The BlahBlahBlahger-yes, JJ tag you’re it!

The Macchio Family-A newbie to me!

In The Trenches of Mommyhood-I’ve been following her for awhile now.  We finally get to meet next month.

Newlyweds Next Door-She’s local and yet, we haven’t met! Spring 2010 goal!

One Fabulous Mom-Well, cause’s she’s fabulous! Another local, LA, woman that I need to get together with!

Caffeine Court-Cause she’s got “Caffeine” in her blog title. How awesome is that!

Nap Warden-She’s hilarious. We can go for quite awhile without chatting and boom, we catch up quick!

Love the "Seven"!! What a bummer about your engagement ring! ARRGH! And I don't iron either - they don't need my name or phone number at the cleaners - so wrong. At least they are green cleaners!!
