7 Things about me

Dan from All That Comes With It tagged me with a meme. I’ve mentioned before that I actually love to do memes – my low self-esteem side gets to feel all warm and fuzzy and included, while the overinflated part of my ego gets to talk about myself. It truly is a perfect situation for me, really. (Dan – psychoanalize that, would you?)

What’s even more perfect is that I’ve been at a loss lately about what to post. It’s not that I have nothing interesting going on in my life at the moment – actually I’ve been quite busy. I had my last postnatal visit with my first doula client where it was hard to say goodbye. I have two new doula clients and two strong nibbles, however due to confidentiality issues I won’t be talking about them here unless they agree to it in writing (and I actually get the nerve up to tell them about my blog). We’ve also been quite busy with swimming lessons which is another post all to itself. The garden is producing a bit of vegetables, and sadly, even taller weeds, and I’d like to get out there and take some pictures for a post in all it’s weedy glory. Finally preschool is about to start up again and I’m about to go to Seattle with the girls for a showing of Young Frankenstein on the stage, so I’m sure there are posts that will come out of that. But for the moment, I’ve got to deal with blogstipation and have faith that it will work its way out naturally as it always does.

But the posts above take real work. Coming up with seven things to tell about myself? For this narcissistic? No problem.

1. After an MRI, I learned that all cartilage in my right hip is completely shattered and in 10 years or so I will need replacement hip surgery. That will make me about 44 years old. So in ten years if you find yourselves in the Tri-Cities in Washington State at the grocery store and you come across a middle-aged woman with a walker trying to reach the Kashi cereal, hand it down to me, would you? Thanks.

2. My major personality flaws include but are in no means limited to a talent for saying exactly the wrong thing at the wrong time, over-analyzing most everything, over-thinking situations in which feelings might be hurt by me (but somehow overlooking the most obvious way), and the inability to look someone in the eyes while I am talking to them so as not to see any judgment on their face. Now don’t you want me as your doula?

3. As a youngster of about 8 years old I swallowed a penny while diving for coins in the backyard pool. I got to ride in the front seat in the ambulance and honk the horn all the way to the hospital.

4. I have never had an ice cream headache.

5. My butt crack tweaks to the right at the very top. It has since the day I was born. In fact, my parents asked about it immediately after my birth to verify I was normal. Unfortunately doctor’s can’t predict a normal personality from a baby’s butt crack.

6. If Rich kisses one side of my elbow joint then the other, he must kiss it in the middle or I have to rub it for a minute or so. He often uses this obsessive-compulsive tick of mine to his advantage.

7. My brother learned to swim before I did, even though he is 2 1/2 years my younger. This made me furiously jealous and I swam for the first time about 30 seconds after hearing the news.

Alright – I’ve never tagged anyone before…let’s see. I tag kkblaze, myallusions (you didn’t think you were going to get away with letting your blog slide unnoticed into oblivion, did you?) and needs new batteries.

    I don’t do psychoanalysis, I tend to be a little less up my own rectum than that in my therapy.

    But I think this:
    my low self-esteem side gets to feel all warm and fuzzy and included, while the overinflated part of my ego gets to talk about myself

    could have been written by every single blogger out there.
