6 unspectacular things about me.

I was tagged by Rachel, a M.O.M. (Mom of Multiples) extraordinare. She blogs about her life with twins A's age, a step son, and a daughter on the way here

Here are the rules:

The rules:
1. Link the person who tagged you.
2. Mention the rules on your blog.
3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours.
4. Tag 6 following bloggers by linking them.
5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger’s blogs letting them know they’ve been tagged.

Hmm. 6 unspectcular things you say. Let's see if I can fill the list.

1. I am afraid of thunder and lightning. I dunno if afraid is really the best word to use here, but I definitely don't like them. I wouldn't say I fear for my life or anything like that, but I would much prefer if I never had to experience one. I've never hidden under the bed with the dog or cats (err, at least not since I was 7), but have always kinda wanted to.

2. My two big toes take after each of my parents. This is hard to explain, but my left big toe look just like my dad's, and my right big toe looks just like my moms. How's that for unspectacular?

3. I love, love, love roller coasters. Actually, any ride really. I'm a little afraid of KingdaKa and haven't actually been to Great Adventure since it opened, but would go on it if it's there the next time I am. I love a lot of the rides that others are afraid of--the spinny one where you go up the walls, the dropping one, etc. I won't, however, go on any of those super daring rides you have to pay for (like that catapult thing). Not only am I cheap, but I think they might just be a little too extreme.

4. Learning to surf is on my bucket list. I have always wanted to do it, and never got the chance. I think we're going to have to make a trip to Hawaii so I can learn (where better, right?).

5. Sort of related, learning to SCUBA dive is on my list of things to do in my 30s. Another thing I've always wanted to do, but it's much easier to learn here in NJ.

6. I think it's been a year since my last manicure or pedicure. I'm not sure how I've survived this long, and especially how I've survived a whole summer, but I've done it. Thank God for beach sand, which has really helped keep things under control.

OK, so who to tag. I think:

LOVE IT! It was fun, wasn't it?!? I'm with ya on the pedi thing. I just stopped looking at my feet, though that's not too hard considering my belly is bursting. The pedi-egg won't even redeem me :)

Thanks for playing along!

Just wait when he's a little older and he screams for you on your way out the door (great way to start your work day) and then in the afternoon when you want to take him home, he screams not to leave!
