6 Things Meme

Sunny Jenny tagged me with this meme so I'll play. I've been sticking only to the theme at hand here on this blog, but why not take a little break.

So here are...

Six Interesting Things about Me

1) I once read in a dumb women's magazine that if you weren't fat by the age of 30, you'd never be fat. I never forgot that dumb "fact." And I always wonder if I should test the theory with some, you know, delicious treats on a very regular basis. But then I can't bring myself to do it. Ahhh! It's true!

2) At parties I often find myself talking to/playing with the kids instead of interacting with the adults. They're often times more real. And more interesting. And I don't feel shy with them.

3) I stopped consuming all artificial sweeteners about 5 years ago because they scare me. It was after I had a very large diet soda and then tasted a sweet "aftertaste" about 7 hours later. I thought, oh my god, these chemicals cannot be innocuous.

4) I made my close friend promise that if ever I was in a coma she would pluck out my chin hairs regularly so that other people wouldn't see them. (No, I don't have PCOS - it's just a few regular ol' genetic whiskers. Attractive. I know.) I promised to do the same for her. Wherepon she told me I should also pluck her nipple hairs for her.

5) Part of me wishes I would have become a doctor like my dad. It's not a major regret, just a recurring thought. More and more often as I get older and find myself hyper-interested in medical issues and wishing I knew more and had more solid scientific background. My cousin thinks I should go to medical school. (I would be a first-year resident at like, age 45. Not impossible but... also not sane.)

6) I sometimes have creative ideas or am able to solve problems I couldn't solve before, right when I'm waking up. Sometimes I try to stay in that "just waking up" state for an extended time for this reason.

Well, I think everyone's been tagged by now, so I'll just say, grab this meme if you feel like it and tell us about yourself... after all, TTC and IF issues are only part of each of our lives.

Ah the whiskers, I hadn't thought of designating anyone to pluck them if I am incapacitated. Must get to that immediately.

A friend of mine went to medical school at 33. She says it was the best decision she's ever made. It's still possible, you know.

Utrus - I wish you didn't tell us the fat thing. I just know it's going to stay in my head forever.

Jill said...

Thanks for this post. It was fun to learn more about you. As for #2--ditto for me.

I must be you....am I? The artificial sweetner? It's disgusting! About the chin hair....must get to that immediately! God how terrible is that....need someone to pluck chinhair....it's on my to-do list. Med school. I am thinking about it too. Especially now in the midst of IVF. I'd go into psychology though (it's med school here too).

Very interesting your list. Love to read more someday!

Thanks for stopping by at my blog yesterday and sending me virutal hugs...they were much needed and appreciated!

And I thought I was the only person in the world who plucks their nipple hairs! hahahahaaa!

Mary Ellen and Steve said...

I wish I would have gone into medicine too. I didn't think that I could handle the needles. Ha! Oh well.

Sarah said...

I'm the same way with kids at a party. You will find me on the floor in the playroom building a Barbie world for my favourite little people. It was great to learn a bit about you. Thanks for sharing!

I feel the same way about med school. It was my dream as a child, but when I found out how long it takes to go to school, I said forget it. How I wished I didn't changed my mind.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope that everhting works out for you this coming cycle and no more cyst!!

Just another Jenny said...

I worry that my hairy face might be a sign of PCOS but so far so good. I understand the chin plucking. I have a real nasty black one that I better ask somebody to take care of for me if I ever need it.

Sunny Jenny said...

Just a thought on #5 - you're going to be 45 one day anyway.

Lori said...

You know, my neighbor is going to be a 3rd year med student and he's in his late 30's. You'd still have a good 20+ year career ahead of you. Just a thought...
I'm off to go call my best friend and arrange for whisker plucking.

I sure wish I would have known about the fat thing! LOL!
