Tagged for Seven

Lori of DaHamFam fame has tagged me for a list of seven little-known facts about myself. Hey, don't blame me, LORI opened this can of worms! And be sure to read at the end to see if YOU have been tagged by me for this fun little game. Now here they are, in no particular order:

1. I have monkey toes. My family knows this, but it's not something I tend to broadcast. What are monkey toes, you might ask? Well, apparently, when you have a large gap between your big toe and second toe, those are monkey toes. Yup, that's what I have. If you want me to pick something up off the floor using my toes as pinchers, it just ain't gonna happen people. They're just too dang far apart.

2. I used to be quite the avid Phoenix Suns fan. Ok, avid is not a strong enough word. Obsessed. Sick, perhaps. So once when a Phoenix radio station was doing a drawing giving away various Suns-related prizes, I went to the place of entry and stuffed the box with a gazillion entries containing my name and the names of every family member and friend I could think of. The result: I won a trip to Chicago to see the Suns play the Bulls, and also a pair of tickets to a Suns game in Phoenix. It pays to be obsessive.

3. Going back to #2, I thought it'd be fun to quit a perfectly good job and go to work for Danny Ainge (Suns player at the time) in the main office of his sports attire business. I liked Mr. Ainge A LOT. So what could be a better job? Well, I got the job and it was fun for a while, but turned out to be much less lucrative and glamorous than I'd hoped. Luckily, the aforementioned perfectly good employer was kind (or dumb) enough to take me back after my momentary lapse in judgment.

4. I once had a tumor in my big toe, which had to be surgically removed. Do I really need to elaborate?

5. I've been to the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. Not that interesting? Well, have YOU been there?

6. When I get really mad, I have a tendency to throw things. No, not AT anyone, but my favorite--when I'm really mad--is throwing shoes at the washing machine. Makes the loudest noise and therefore has the best effect, in my opinion.

7. My children are not allowed in my master bathroom. Since we moved in our new house in '06, the one with the great big old bathroom with the garden tub, I adopted said room as my haven. That's "mommy's room." If the hall bath is occupied and one of my kids has to go really badly, they'll come to me dancing around and ask if they can use my bathroom before they'll step foot in there without permission. They know that room is the equivalent of ancient Indian burial grounds around here. Just call me the bathroom nazi. (did #7 contain enough politically incorrect references between the burial grounds and the nazi comments?)

I'd better stop now.

I'm tagging the following peeps:

HA! You throw shoes at the washing machine? WEIRD. =)

Tumor in your big toe? Really weird.

The job sounded glamorous.

Seriously, I don't think there is anything about me that I haven't written on my blog . . . but I will think about it!!!

BossyMommy said...

Ok, seriously, Kristi, I know enough about you to know you've got at LEAST 7 more weird/interesting things left in you. AT LEAST! Cough 'em up, girl.

Anonymous said...

I think I've told all of my secrets too but I'm up for trying...

Thanks for making me feel included. sniff sniff

Crazy Hughes Fam said... I am trying the tag out...not sure how to link at the bottom...might need to call you. It was fun to read about yours. Love to know about the job and the shoes at the washing machine...gonna try that one.

Lors said...

Ahh shucks, thanks for answering my tag. And thanks for not hating me for tagging you. WOW so many great and interesting things about you. We need to get together sometime, I know I keep saying that, but I guess that is totally my fault…All talk and no action.

BossyMommy said...

Gosh, Lori, you're oh so easy to impress! If you think that throwing shoes at washing machines and having monkey toes constitute "great and interesting," we DO need to hang out more. Love ya, Lori!

Kristi Smith said...

Thanks for noticing my brilliance . . . it says something about you . . . I don't know what . . . butit says something!

BossyMommy said...

Ok, but I don't think it says "butit." Or maybe it does. If anybody wonders what Kristi the token Baptist is talking about, you can visit her blog for clarification. Or you can remain confused. Up to you.

The Bodily Family said...

I knew from the moment I met you that I could learn a thing or two from you. The shoe thing just proved it. I think I'll have to get mad at Dave tonight just to try it out.

BossyMommy said...

Yea! Holly's on my blog! Glad you could join us, girl. Do try the shoe thing. Or, you could just throw a shoe directly at Dave. Then, if that works out for you, let me know and I'll start throwing shoes at Dave, too. That's just GOT to be therapeutic, I know it.

Jacey..sorry about the slip up. You are now officially on my bloggers list. I see you quickly made sure you were covered in that department as well. Thanks. And yes, I would agree that you should be proud of yourself in your "seven" things most people shouldn't know about you thing! ;) very cute..ammie
