7 Random Things About Me

I was tagged for this by Karyn and Erica, my twin friends that I've known since we were about 5 years old, so I best get to it!


1) The second and third toes on both of my feet are partially webbed. I call them my two-headed monsters.
2) I was briefly in a band in 9th grade, the Amazing Seeds. I was the female vocalist; the rest were boys. It was like The Thompson Twins. But with better hair.
3) I have fast hands. I can deal cards and play piano scales like no other.
4) I've never been in a limo. And I can' t say I have any regrets about it.
5) I have massively different vision in my two eyes. One sees 20/30 with an astigmatism. The other is virtually blind: 20/550. Due to the heavy coke-bottled-ness of the right lense, it makes my glasses sit crooked. And that eye looks smaller. It's really hot when I wear glasses, let me tell you.
6) I love old musicals. Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Flower Drug Song and Singing In the Rain are my favorites.
7. I secretly want to be really good at riding horses (Western, not English). I've only ridden maybe half a dozen times, but I absolutely loved it.

Consider yourself tagged, if you want to play along!

I love, love, love musicals! Flower Drum Song is fantastic!

Karyn said...

Musicals are awesome! I totally agree. I've not seen Flower Drum, just listened to the soundtrack. I use to watch "Slipper and the Rose" with my mom as a kid.

And I too want to be good at riding horses- western style.

My hasband says I have six toes, 3 on each due to the web factor. At least we can swim fast, eh? :-)

Christie said...

I love that you have weird toes. I have them too. I've been told that my second toe looks like a hammerhead shark. And I have monkey hands. You're doing way better than I am :)

I've never been in a limo.

And I sort of have a sixth toe. Not really, but I have this weird bump on both my pinky toes.

Melissa said...

Please for the love of all that's holy, post of picture of you wearing your glasses! That would be awesome.
Please don't post of picture of your toes, that would be just a little, um, weird.
I too, was in a band in high school. We never actually played anything or met as a group, or well, I'm not sure who the peeps really were, but I wrote some awsome lyrics.

I was in a limo, wasn't cool. Didn't feel special.. whoopy wow wow.. nope.

MiaKatia said...

I want to see the toes ;) I don't have a pinky toe nail on either foot, but I am not sure that is as cool as webbed toes. And I loved dating guys who were in bands, but I was never in one myself cause I can't sing and the only instruments I can even half play are not fit for a rock band (flute/viola).

I LOVE Seven Brides for Seven Brothers!

I may just need to play this one.

André said...

Didn't you say that everyone wanted to see your freak show? It looks like only one person here requested pics. Oh well. We all get writer's block and flights of fancy.

Omgirl said...

Um, NO, Andre. TWO people requested pictures. Mia and Melissa. And that's a pretty high percentage of the people who commented on that post, so I HAD to oblige.

André said...

I'll give you 1.5 people since Melissa asked for a picture of the glasses and specifically said no toes. Still, it is a rather large following. My blog doesn't have near the glitz yours does.
