Eight Random Things

Eight Random Things, Only Eight
('cause there could be nine)

My friend
Susan Meissner tagged me this afternoon to play Eight Random Things. And now [evil laugh, wringing hands] I give you Eight Random Things and those I've tagged to go after me!

First, the rules:
1. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
3. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
4. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged, and to read your blog.

EIGHT RANDOM THINGS ABOUT ME:

1. I'm an introextravert. Yeah, weird. I can be alone, enjoy being alone, always find peace in being alone. But, I love being out with people. Love social events. I can talk to pretty much anyone. I used to go to McDonalds in the morning to drink a Diet Coke and read - a book or my Bible, but I can't now. I've made friends and they talk to me while I'm reading.

2. I taught myself to play the keyboard.

3. I don't like spicey food.

4. While teaching a class to old newspaper typesetters (men) in Madrid, Spain, I returned to class after a break with a huge wad of paper towels stuck in the top of my pants. I'd used them to cover the toilet seat and it seems a collection of them slid off into my pants with out my knowledge.

5. I beat fear and anxiety by cling to and quoting God's Word, and believing what He says about me instead of how I felt.

6. I love junk food.

7. I've been to five continents.

8. I met my husband at church. God told me we were going to get married, but my husband felt God said we were to be friends. For three years, Husband was right. I've been right for eighteen and counting! LOL. (Actually, God did a great work in both of us. He is good!)

Here's who I have tagged: Christine Lynxwiler, Susan May Warren, Marilyn Griffith, Cindy Woodsmall, Amy Wallace, Rebekah Gunter, Carolyn Aarsen, and Georgiana D.

I like being alone and reading. I also enjoy being with my friends but I can't read and talk them at the same time. I usually tune them out. LOL
I agree with you on #5. It helps me out alot.
5 continents. Wow!!!!!!!!Tell us where you've been. So jealous. Never been anywhere but Missouri(home), Kentucky and Tennessee. Sad Huh?
