7 Things You Might Not Know About Allie

"Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art... It has no survival value; rather is one of those things that give value to survival." - C. S. Lewis

Emma Sanders tagged me the other day, and since I haven't done one of these in a while, I'll play:
The rules are:
List seven things about yourself

Link to the person who tagged you (see above)

Tag seven new victims, er, friends.

So here's a list of seven things about me:

1. I didn’t get married until I was 30 years old.

2. I can still sing the “50 States” song that I learned in 6th grade. It lists them all in alphabetical order and is quite impressive at cocktail parties LOL (“Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas…”)

3. I studied sign language for 2 years after graduate school and wish I’d continued.

4. I don’t like mustard, mayonnaise, onions, or pickles. As you can imagine, I eat a very naked burger.

5. I have a baby grand piano in my living room that I play daily.

6. I ran a marathon in 1999, in Washington DC, and have no desire to ever physically punish myself like that again.

7. I would go back and live in Shaker Heights, Ohio, in a heartbeat, if my hubby would agree to it. I miss Cleveland :)

So who am I tagging? YOU, if you want to play...let me know!

Well... as you know, I already played! LOL...

I was 29 when I got married.

BTW... I hope you have room on your bookshelves (*wink*).

Judy Thomas said...

Since both you and Marianne played, I'm honor bound to do the same... sometime today.

Do you have a lot of reading to do in the near future?

I really love the quote! :)

Emma Sanders said...

How interesting! I love that you have a baby grand piano!

Wow, you ARE a cradle robber! And I'm still trying to figure out what "35/36" means...was he born on your birthday, or just really close ? LOL
