8 random things ~darn you talullah~

Only because I love Christine so much will I respond to her tag & give you 8 random things about myself:

1~ I lived in Turkey for almost 2 years when I was a tween. That is where I learned to knit.

2~ My mom taught me how to crochet when I was 10 & hated it. Once I got out of the house I loved it ;o) Such a rebel.

3~ I was born at 30 weeks. Tiny little thing just 4 lbs. If you can’t tell that means I was just as impatient then as I am now. Nothing has changed.

4~ I had a mohawk as a teenager. But I only wore it up when I was in the city hanging out with all the ‘cool punk rock kids’. Never at home with my real friends.

5~ I own my dream car. mercedes e320 wagon

6~ I stay in my pj’s most of the day. But once I do leave the house expect to see me in heels/wedges and dressed like I work 9-5 when we all know I work 24/7/365 with no real breaks. Damn the invention of the cell phone.

7~ I have 5 sets of tattoos. (how do you count the number of tattoos you have? By each individual drawing or the group that is done at the time? The 5 sets is by groups done at each visit to the artist)

8~ I was diagnosed with bulemia nervosa after 9 years of torturing myself and having a string of car accidents. The car accidents were caused by mini seizures happening in my brain from malnutrition. With proper nutritional counseling and a wonderful husband I have been ‘normal’ for over 10 years. Lucky me I have pericardium spasms that persist to this day.


I won’t tag anyone but if you feel the need to do your own 8 random things leave me a comment & let me know so I can check them out!

  1. Ha!!ha!!!! For mine is an evil laugh! And I love you too Chaun!!! (but don’t let George know! lol!)


  2. I didn’t know about a lot of number 8, and I am so sorry to hear that you had to go through that – and still have to go through that – as you said you continue to have pericardium spasms. That’s pretty scary. (Had to look that one up on WebMD)
    I think that, as much as I wish you never had to go through anything difficult or painful ever, it is probably one of those things that has made you the layered, compassionate, interesting person that you are – but, more importantly, I’m glad you got treatment for it so you can be around to be the person and friend I adore so very much.
    Couldn’t have been easy, I’d imagine.
    At the risk of sounding condescending, I am proud of you. I am proud of who you are, what you have gone through, and what you have accomplished. I am proud to count you as one of my dearest friends.


  3. You are right! It is something that has shaped/molded me & who I am today. It is a constant struggle to stay content & not let it grab ahold of me. Anorexia in general sucks big time.

    And thank you for being proud of me!

    Kind of a heavy topic for a knitting meme but oh well!


  4. Ha, another all day PJ wearer! PJs are the best, topped only by long, comfy flannel nightgowns, IMHO.
