8 things

It may have been quiet on this blog but it hasn't been quiet in real life. Last weekend Peter and I decided to rearrange the apartment, including new furniture and all. Ikea always seems like a good idea until fourteen hours later when you've put the front beams on the back side of an entertainment center. My sewing "room" is a secondary storage area until we find the fifty hours to put the remaining items together. So while I can see my sewing machine over all the boxes, I can't actually use it in the apartment's current state.

What a perfect time for a meme. Christina tagged me to tell you eight things about myself. Here goes...

1. I get extremely cranky when I'm hungry. Like, monster cranky. I carry granola bars in my purse in case I'm stuck somewhere and can't get to food in time. Sad, right?
2. I'm terrible at small talk.
3. I was born on the same day as my Dad. He also happens to be a twin so I share my birthday with my Aunt as well.
4. I started running four years ago. I was having a hard time falling asleep because I was so antsy with energy. One evening I decided to run around the block to get rid of some of my energy. It worked and I've been running ever since. I don't consider myself a runner runner though. I'm not hard core about it.
5. I have a Masters in Survey Methodology. If you are scratching your head thinking, "what the bleep?", don't worry, you're not alone. About 99% of the people I tell have the same reaction.
6. My boyfriend says I'm "at-risk" of becoming a vegetarian. I'm extremely picky about meat, especially processed meat. Oddly I'll eat tuna and crab out of a can, but nothing else.
7. I've never been camping. My friends are always surprised when I tell them this because they say I seem like the person who would like camping. A camping trip is on my "must do this Fall" list. We'll see how well my friends know me!
8. I would usually rather be sewing, crocheting, or some sort of crafting rather than doing the activity at hand.

Now I'm tagging these people who I'd love to know eight things about:

Katie
Diann
Mimi
Raesha
Mari

Don't feel obligated to dish though.

This post is also a good time to acknowledge the Rockin' Blogger award Cidell gave me in August. Thanks Cidell! I'm supposed to pass on the torch, but so many people have gotten this award I can't keep it straight who hasn't.

i carry granola bars too. You may want your blood sugar checked the next time you go to the doctor. I also find Kashi bars help the best with the grumpiness!

Andie, I love the Kashi bars! The peanut one is my favorite.

I'm the same way when it comes to hunger - I turn into a major grump and drama queen the minute I feel my blood sugar dropping. I carry granola bars with me everywhere. And even though I am 31 now, my mother still carries some in her purse for me when we are out together. I've passed out on her one too many times I guess :)

I carry gummy bears in my pocket too for any runs longer than 4 miles - I find the fruit juice helps.

Thanks for tagging me. I've had such a busy work week, I haven't had time to post. This will give me an opportunity to think about 8 things while I finish up this last order for the week.

Maybe I should try running at night. I also have a hard time sleeping, but I run in the mornings. You might have the answer to my issue!
