Tagged - edited

I was recently tagged by The French Kitchen to do a meme. I'm supposed to tell you 7 random or strange things about myself. I've done this before but hopefully I can come up with NEW weird things!!! Here goes!

1 - My middle toe on my right foot is shorter than my left. I mean, the top of it is even with the fourth toe! It kind of feels like I'm missing one the joints in it, but I think it's just sitting low on my tarsals (the bones that make up the main part of your foot right behind your toes.

2 - I hated my surgery rotation but my favorite part was trauma call. I know, who likes to be forced to stay overnight, get no sleep, see people come in with gunshot wounds, do random exploratory surgery at 3am and almost pass out from hypoglycemia, and then have to do a half day of work the next day? I did...but that call was only Q10-12 (every 10-12 nights) instead of the normal Q4 for wards!

3 - I like fresh cherries but do NOT like any kind of candied, marachino (that is SO not spelled right!), or chocolate covered cherries. Ick!

4 - I lived in Bishkek, Kygyzstan for a year (during my fifth grade year). Learned how to make several local dishes. I also had the opportunity (hmmm?) to try horse. Not bad but won't do that again!

5 - This was kind of prompted by TFK, but, I could SO lived without ketchup; however, I do like it with roasted sweet potatoes and salmon. Otherwise, I don't use it!

6 - This is a random one...I would love to have a child with curly, auburn hair! I have really red highlights in my very DARK hair, so the auburn is possible. My hair is pretty straight but it has some wave but nothing NEAR curly. Maybe if I marry someone with curly hair it would happen. :-)

7 - I've never had lobster, scallops, mussels, oysters, mahi mahi, or tuna (the real kind, not canned!)...but I LOVE seafood!

Now, I'm supposed to tag 7 other people - and I'm back to do it! Y'all have fun doing this and I'll have fun at home all by myself while my parents go to an out of town wedding and my brother and his girlfriend go to an out of town concert!

Here are the rules:
1. Link the person that tagged you and post the rules.
2. Share 7 random or weird facts about yourself.
3. Tag 7 people at the end and link to their sites.
4. Let each person know about the tag in the comment section of their site.

Now, I tag:
1. Pearl of Fresh and Pure
2. Katrina from Baking and Boys!

3. Jessica from Coffee and a Cookie
4. Gail from More than a Song
5. Stacy from Exceedingly Mundane
6. Maryanna at Taste and See
7. Red Dirt Mummy

oh claire that's SO interesting! thank you for sharing :)

and hmm.. is it nice having the house to yourself while your family is out? or do you feel a little lonely? i could see benefits to both sides!

Jessica said...

Thanks for the tag and for sharing about yourself! Now I just have to think of 7 people to tag... :)

Red Dirt Mummy said...

Thanks Claire - now I've got today's post sorted LOL.

Stacy at Exceedingly Mundane said...

Fun ones, Claire! I love seafood too, and have had all of those that you mentioned, although I refuse to eat oysters any more. We had some fried ones when I was young, and when I cut it with a fork, green goo oozed out on my plate. I've never gone anywhere near an oyster since, and won't! I love most all of those others though (although mussels are pretty chewy to me), and have also tried alligator twice in the last year or two. :)

Thanks for the tag... I've done this one before, so I may pass, but thanks for thinking of me!

Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Pearl - I think I ended up liking it! I was worried that I'd be lonely.

Jessica - :-) That's usually the hardest part for me, too!

RDM - Glad to help!

Stacy - I think I had done this one before, too! Don't worry about it...enjoy your family!

I think I remember getting an email with your comment that you'd tagged me; I was in the midst of Christmas stuff, plus the hard drive on my laptop died! Yikes! Now I'm without a computer, except this old really sloooooow I may not get to this.
I love cherries of all kinds. A child with curly auburn hair is totally possible! I've always had a tad of red in my hair that showed up most in the sun, now it shows up more with help! But my 4th child has auburn hair and it tends to be curly but that child is David and I always hope my boys won't grow their hair out long enough for it to get curly! But after having 4 kids I did have one with auburn/red hair.
