Nine fine (well sort of fine) things!

I was tagged by Hippo.

Nine things you did not know about me...

1. I won the State championship in the 100 meter butterfly.

2. I had grade three ligament and tendon tears in my foot, ankle and leg....spent 14 weeks in a fiberglass cast with crutches.

3. At one time I wanted to be a flight attendant, now flying is one of my biggest fears.

4. I had to take ballroom dance in the 7th grade.

5. I have lived in 5 different states and 8 different cities.

6. I have worked in a grocery store, record store, movie theatre, country club, hospital, personnel agency, eye clinic, newspaper, bank, data center, bookstore and insurance company.

7. The pet I had growing up was a dog, now I have 2 cats.

8. I am allergic to celery.

9. I love watching movies. I collect DVDs, but I don't have 200 yet!

I would love to learn 9 things about you, so feel free to tag yourself! Let me know if you do.
Have a good day!

4. I can't dance.

5. I've lived in 3 different states and 5 different cities.

6. I have never really worked ... I just pretend.

7. I feared dogs when I was growing up, then owned 6 at one time. Big bad ones, too.

~I know! It makes my lips and tongue numb and tingly. I found out that people allergic to celery also have an allergy to birch pollen and mugwort pollen! (whatever that is)

~Well....you probably could challenge me in swimming now, it has been a long time!
I think sometimes you have to try out different types of jobs before you find the one you like! :)

I measured a +3 OR +4 to celery sensitivity. That means I should avoid it because it could become a full-blown allergy anytime. Like avacado and some other foods.

Hmmmm

Henri Banks said...

what are the names of the Five different States !!!

Henri Banks said...

you told already hehe okay I love watching movies to and i am also a collector !!!
Pssst and me either dont have 200 movies !!

crabcake said...

The 100 meter Butterfly is impressive as hell, LeeAnn. My arms get sore just typing it.

You're not missing much on the celery. I don't eat it myself cause I don't like to have to pull off all the celery hair.

Anyhow, nice to meet you, kiddo and HAPPY TWEENER WEEK!

BuccoTom said...

OK ... when that food package I sent gets there? Just give it to some homeless dude. Course he probably wont take it because he doesn't LIKE celery but c'est la vie. I had to take square and ballroom dancing in elementary school too. Hey, but I do a hell of a Virginia Reel now! Great list babe.

~I have never had an actual test for allergies, but everytime I eat celery my tongue and lips get numb, which goes along with the red, watery eyes, sneezing when I get too close to the birch pollen.

~Thank you so much and thank you for stopping over here. It has been a long time since I swam. I was a competitive swimmer for 13 years.
I don't like that celery hair either.
I hope you will come by more often!
