So there are some tagging things going around, and lovely, sweet Kischa tagged me. I consider these thing equivalent to chain letters or emails that command you to forward them to 10 people or you'll be infertile (damn!). I'm not into that stuff, but Kischa seems to be a good person so I will fulfill my 7 facts and let this tag die here.

1. I became a vegetarian when I was 8, but no one else in my family is.

2. I have a tattoo of a shamrock (3 leafed, not 4 leafed) on my right hip.

3. I was a Girl Scout from Daisys up through graduating as a Senior. Actually, I have a lifetime membership. I earned a Gold Award. My troop mates are still my best friends even though we don't see each other very often anymore.

4. I had the biggest crush on Conan O'Brien when I was a teenager. Oh man, I still think he's hot. But I stopped watching his show after Andy Richter left... it just wasn't the same.

5. I was a planned c-section and my parents wanted me be born on Dec. 31 b/c my brother was born on the 31st of another month and they thought it would be easier to remember my birthday (also they wanted me born before the end of the year for taxes). The dr. had the 31st off so they decided to have me on the 30th instead (taxes again). They have forgotten my birthday twice.

6. My computer died in the middle of writing this post. I think it's totally gone... it was a nearly 7 year old Sony Vaio. I'm finishing this at work. I hope I didn't lose a bunch of info permanently... I have an external hard drive but I can't remember if I keep all the important stuff on it. I installed Picasa 3 yesterday and was clicking on a folder in it when this happened (it just went dead and won't give me a prompt at all)... now I'm suspicious.

7. I relate better to people that are older than me than I do to people my own age. Hopefully as my peers mature this will fix itself, but otherwise I'd rather hangout with the 40+ crowd than twenty something crowd.

Hope you enjoyed these random facts. Google Picasa is seriously on my enemies list now.

I'm sorry! Thanks for being a good sport, I almost didn't participate myself but since I'm a new blogger I kinda felt I should.

Both my girls are Girlscouts and have been since they were Daisies also. So I'm a big fan of Girlscouts too.

I'm so sorry to hear about the computer. I hope you didn't lose anything important. I haven't backed up my computer in forever. I need to do that.

Hey there ...here from ICLW. I'm currently pregnant after my 4th Clomid cycle and Metformin. Keep the faith! I'll keep stopping by to see how things are going.

are you veggie b/c you don't like it? b/c you are opposed to animals? just wondering how you decide that at 8? was it a fight with your family?

Wow. That birthdate story is amazing. I have to admit with our second - a planned induction - I wanted a Friday so her first birthday would be on a Saturday so it would be easy to plan the party.

Silly - huh?

Funny enough, I think Conan O'Brien is pretty hot, too! I don't know why...maybe his quick wit. But I also agree about Andy, the show hasn't been the same since him.

We just bought a Sony Vaio and I hope it lasts 7 years!

I hope 2009 is your year!!
