Yay! I’m it!

16 Apr

I’ve been feeling so much blog guilt for the past few days. I still have a great question from Malva from the Q&A post that I wanted to address, along with some silly questions from family (hi guys!). Plus I had a whole pile of things to say about Jade, with some cute pictures and videos, to boot. And then there are my ongoing pregnancy symptoms (I’ve already got a pooch starting — ack!) so different from my pregnancy with Jade.  So much bloggable fodder, so little energy.

But today I am ignoring all that because I got tagged with my first meme — hurray!  I feel so included now!  So thanks, McMommy, for asking me to play along.

This is the “7 Things” meme, and here are the rules:

  1. Link your tagger. Post the rules.
  2. Share 7 facts about yourself (random or weird)
  3. Tag 7 friends
  4. Leave a comment letting them know they have been tagged.

Let’s see if I can think of seven things you might not know about me…

1. I absolutely loooove to plan parties and events.  I think my dream job could be planning weddings and parties, but I’m too chicken to look into doing this seriously, especially in a market as small (and self-reliant) as Whitehorse.  I admit I’ve had a pretty bad track record since Jade was born; she hasn’t even really had a birthday party yet.  But!  We’ll be hosting a brunch for the Big Band at the end of this month and I am really looking forward to that.

2. Red is my absolute favourite colour.  Deep crimson, scarlet, blue-y reds.  (But you can keep the orangey ones.)  It shouldn’t be a surprise that when I had my colours done a few years ago, it turns out that I’m a “Winter”, and red is one of the best colours for me to wear.  Hurray!

3. I’ve slept outside in winter.  Well, not outside exactly, but we went winter camping and made a snow hut by piling the snow up, letting it set, and then digging it out.  It’s amazing how toasty it can be in there in the sleeping bag, as long as you sleep naked (counter-intuitive, I know) but wear a hat and gloves.  But don’t drink too much tea before going to bed because otherwise you might end up…

4. Crawling out of the snow hut stark naked, even though it’s -20°C outside.  Like I did.  Oh, except for boots.  There’s not a lot of wiggle room inside a snow hut, and it was way easier to just go out than to struggle with clothes.  I was surprised that I really didn’t feel cold at all once I got outside.  And it’s soooo much easier to sleep with an empty bladder than a full one.

5. Jade’s birth was so amazingly fast and easy, that within minutes of delivering her I actually said, “Well, that wasn’t so bad.  I could do that again.”  Maybe it was the endorphins…

6. In 2004, I participated in a singing competition grandly called “North of 60 Idol”.  It was organized by the Legion in Yellowknife as a fundraiser, but it drew a good crowd of competitors and filled the Legion hall with spectators every week.  Michael had to coax me to participate, and I was glad he did, especially when we ended up winning a drip to Disneyland in the end.

7. I can wiggle my right ear.  But not my left.

Now, to tag some friends!  Here are some folks I think would have fun with this:

Wow, I’m no longer a meme virgin!  *sniff*  I’ll never forget it.

    So can I still play even if I don’t have 7 people to tag?

    WOW. Suddenly burping on command doesn’t seem so interesting. I mean really….how can that compare to SLEEPING IN THE SNOW NAKED?!

    You just can’t top that!!!

    Fantastic answers! Congrats on your first meme!

    OMG Fawn. You should start a blog: Sleeping in the Snow Naked.

    ha ha ha.

    You’re right. I will have fun with this. Thanks for thinking of me.

    So many fun facts from you. I look forward to doing this — though I don’t have any stories as good as naked snow hut sleeping… Thanks for the tag. 🙂

    for you Fawn, though you are still but a pup, this list should have been more like 27 instead of 7… I will never forget opening up my xmas newsletter from you guys and reading that you shot a wild bird with a gun and cooked and ate it.
