Seven Random Things Tag

I've been tagged again for this by my friend Jen so here goes.

  • I hate drugs and when I say hate I mean HATE on a visceral level. I have seen so many lives destroyed by addiction to drugs both prescrip and street drugs. If you remember those commercials about "This is your brain. This is your brain on drugs." With the eggs and the eggs got fried on drugs? It's not just your brain that's fried it's your life and all of those people who are around you and love you. Drugs suck.
  • I can make my eyebrows dance. Meaning I can raise each eyebrow separately. How did I come by such and amazing talent you ask? Watching Star Man (the tv show not the movie) growing up I was amazed that he could raise the opposite eyebrow. So I practiced in front of the mirror in my bathroom. Lame I know but it impresses my kids today.
  • I've been going to Yoga classes since the first of the year. I didn't really want to start going but I did and it's helped with my PMS symptoms. I am also sleeping with my Yoga instructor. That's a plus as well. (Don't get your panties in a wad...my husband teaches the class!)
  • I love to travel but since we don't have the money to do so I travel vicariously through blogs of people who do.
  • I am pretty athletic. When I was young I schooled many a kid in the game of Dodge Ball. I am still fairly athletic but really out of shape.
  • Honesty and Respect for self and others are of utmost importance me. I don't think that society places a high enough value on either one. And I don't think that parents these days teach it to their kids. I am trying to teach my kids about it the best I know how.
  • I always wear my seat belt. Always. Even if I am just moving my car from the driveway onto the road. It's habit. I get into my car and buckle my belt as I'm starting it up.
So there you have it seven more random things about me. I tag whoever wants to tell more random things about themselves. I love to read stuff like that.

Kudos for sleeping with the yoga instructor. You go, girl!

I laughed about the sleeping with the yoga instructor comment. I thought "did she really just say that?" Then I read on. Hee, hee. I love these tags. I love learning new things about people.

I loved seeing your eybows at YW a few weeks ago!! I can do the same thing with my pinky toes. I also spent many hours learning that talent.

Vanessa said...

An eyebrow dance? Awesome. YOu need to put that on your blog.

Lara Neves said...

I really wish I could make my eyebrows do that. I have tried and tried and I just can't seem to figure it out.

I love these tags because you get to know someone so much better.

You're a girl of many talents and I'm impressed! That's a good habit with your seatbelt. I always put mine on at the same time but it's after the reverse when I put it back into drive. No clue why but I've noticed that's when it happens.

My daughter just started a power yoga class and she said it's a killer workout. I never thought yoga could be anything but relaxing but I learned somethin'!

I know, drugs SUCK! we lost someone So close to us because of that addiction.
and I can raise my eyebrows too, I learned from Hope on Days of our Lives when I was little, she would always raise her eyebrow when she was mad or questioning someone, so I taught myself too!!

I'm with you on the seat belt thing. And the drug thing (in that I hate them). But I am not athletic. I certainly admire you for working out!
