The Stiching Surgeon tagged me today to provide some random/weird things about myself, so I decided to give this post a random and weird name. what can I say, this girl's got pancakes on the brain...

OK so here it goes:

1. I drink a lot of water... in fact it's all I ever really drink besides the couple cups of coffee and ruby red I have in the morning. I actually feel quite bad when I have guests over, especially if they're pregnant and can't drink wine (ok so I drink that too) -- "what can I get you to drink? we have water, water and OH water!" at least I've branched out a bit and started putting lemons in water for effect. excuse me for a sec while I fill my glass...

2. I've had some interesting part-time jobs. one summer my mom got me a job working on the bridge to the United States. yes ON the bridge. my little home town is five minutes from the border and my mom knew the guys that maintained the bridge every summer so I was in. I was a 'flag girl' which meant that I was in charge of radioing the other flag girl at the other end of the bridge to tell her how many cars I had coming from my end. we had to close off part of the bridge so this was an important job - otherwise we'd have quite the traffic jam. I didn't last long -- it had to be the most boring job in my life. i learned how to sleep standing up... quite well I might add. And I also brushed up on my poetry. it was a grand old time. I got a new job a month later working for a forest scanning and OCRing reports... I'm really not sure which job was more exciting. OK my other interesting part-time job was that I used to have to get up at 5AM to feed calves. I lived on a dairy farm for about 10 years of my early life so this came with the territory. waking up in freezing temperatures when you barely have the sleep out of your eyes is not what I would consider a fun time...

3. I once got tickets to a Lenny Kravitz summer concert (just one of many of my famous boyfriends) and along with M and two other friends, parked ourselves up on the grassy knoll/general admission area to watch the concert. When I got home I realized that we actually had seats closer to the stage. I had been to a concert earlier that summer and paid the same amount for those tickets so I just assumed that we had to sit on the grass. That was my last chance to tell Lenny how I really feel about him *sigh*

4. I once met James Brown and Brian Wilson in the same year. it's true. M won the James Brown tickets through a local radio station and so we got to meet him back stage. Then later that year our friend Swedish friend Viktor had been touring with Brian Wilson previously and got tickets for his fiance's parents who live here near Toronto, but they couldn't make it so they asked us if we wanted to go. I have to say that although it was cool meeting these two icons, their concerts weren't that exciting... (that might be another random fact -- I fall asleep during everything...)

here's a pic of M and I (on the left) when we met Mr. Brown (this is what we had to call him...) along with two other people that won tickets.

5. I have the priviledge of working from home. my company was acquired a little over a year ago, and our department was told to move to where the new office is, or set-up shop at home. I chose the latter of course and have happily been working in my little house for over a year now.

6. I wear glasses but there is only prescription in one lense (there is glass in the other). Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to get one of those looking glass things with a chain but I think it would be hard to keep it stuck in your eye all the time.

Ok I think I'll stop there... I have to save some random things for another time!

Rules for tagging:
1. Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 random and/or weird things about yourself.
3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.
4. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Man this turning out to be a long post! I think I'll tag the last few people that have left comments on my blog - I'm sure most of these people have been tagged before so I apologize:

1. Swe Daisy Spaces
2. bettyninja (I love her blog name -- I would love to be a ninja...)
3. Sarbear
4. A Loja da Concha
5. Sidelica
6. and chik austin (I'll only tag 6 people since I just gave 6 random things...)

On another note, I wanted to tell you that I've been a bit of a slacker again on the sewing front. I feel like I'm a bit burned-out from christmas and the shower I had for C but I will be back up and running soon. I have list of things I want to get to.

Until then, Happy Tagging and Crafting!
Tomorrow is Friday yay!
