Six Things About Me: The Sequel
The ever-resourceful and practical Alex from Formula Fed and Flexible Parenting, tagged me to reveal 6 Things You Don’t Know About Me. As most of you already know, I did a list not too long ago, and seemed to shock the hell out of everyone with the things I listed. Well, here’s a little more truth and maybe a little less shock:
1. I tried my first cigarette when I was 12. And before I sound like a delinquent, I didn’t start to smoke regularly until I was about 17 (look at me trying to justify that!). And then I finally quit when I was 29. It was the hardest thing I ever did. To me, quitting nicotine was harder to do than giving birth. I would gladly squeeze out another child from my uterus than get addicted to nicotine again and have to go through withdrawals.
2. I pick my fingernails and the skin around them. I hate long nails, so I always have stubby fingernails. Sorry guys, I know it doesn’t sound very attractive, and I look insanely nervous. But I’m really not. It’s just a bad habit that’s hard to break. Perhaps it's because I don't smoke anymore. See #1.
3. I’ve seen the movie, “Superman” (with Christopher Reeve in 1978) no less than 20 times. If you haven’t already noticed, I have an addictive personality.
4. I was Senior Class President. I took this as a personal high for me back then, because I beat out the cutest guy in the class who was my main contender.
5. Jim Morrison is my favorite rock star. I don’t know why this guy does it for me, but he would be my ultimate one night stand. He is soooo cool.
6. My first car was a manual 1964 VW bug. Royal blue with rainbow racing stripes and a sunroof. People from my old neighborhood to this day still identify me with that car.
So there you have it. Maybe a little less shocking than my last list, but how much detail can I really get into about myself on a blog? Like everyone else in the world, I have more than just one side. I’ve done some crazy things in my life, some regrettable and some not, but overall I’m a good person who cares about the world, a loyal friend, a good mother, a hard-working employee, I’ve been told I’m funny and smart, and I used to hate my name when I was a kid. But now I love it: Kate. It’s who I am. It’s who I will always be.
I now tag L.A. Daddy for some enlightenment from the male gender.
