Ten things about me

July 2, 2009 4 Comments

No blog is complete without a meme. From Clevergirl.

1. When I was a child I used to entertain myself with learning all the lines from The Cosby show episodes. My all time favorite episode is the one where Denise sews a shirt for Theo.

2. I would say that two of my best and worst traits are my stubbornness and competitiveness. They are the main reasons why I have achieved a lot of things in life, but they can also be an annoyance, both for myself and for the people around me.

3. I have a knack for predicting people’s actions, which puts me in a slight advantage when playing rock, paper and scissors. When I played an IRL poker tournament it worked too, but on-line that skill seems useless.

4. When I was a 22-year old vegan I swore that I would never eat diary again. Three years later I was eating both milk products and fish. Although, somewhat ironically, I have recently developed a lactose intolerance.

5. I’m much more comfortable being a parent now that my kids have passed the baby/toddler age. But I do fear the teenage years.

6. When it comes to aging my biggest fear is becoming a slow person who has a hard times grasping new things. I have always been a fast learner with little patience for slowness, so this will be a very tough and humbling adjustment for me.

7. I feel a little embarrassed that I don’t have a high enough IQ for joining the Mensa club. Not that I would if I could, but I would like to have the option…

8. I have bought nearly every issue of American Vogue since 1992. But during our last move I knew it was time to get rid of my collection. Still feel a little sad about it though.

9. I love to dance when the music is right. Love. Love. Love. Apart from my family, that is my biggest love high. Don’t do it enough though.

10. Speaking of highs, I would love to be one of those people who bungy jump and climb mountains. But unfortunately I suffer from a terrible vertigo, that seems to get worse every year.

    I just watched that Cosby Show episode while enjoying my morning coffee – thanks!

    I loved the Cosby show! Though the spin-off, A Different World, where Denise goes to college, did much more to create my expectations of college. I'll have to check out that episode you mentioned. I love to dance, too, but have few opportunities to anymore — if we ever get to catch up in person, this will have to go on our agenda. After a sew-along to make appropriate club clothing, as I don't think I own anything like that anymore. 🙂 We def. won't have rock-paper-scissors on the agenda though.

    I always watched the Cosby's, they were my dream family. I always had loads of confidence in parenting, until the teenage years arrived, now I am finding it harder. 🙂

    Regarding #6…I’m a quick learner, too, and (secretly) very impatient with people I who don’t have the same ability, especially when I’m the one trying to teach them something! I’m here to tell you, as I age, and now at 60, I only get quicker and more spatially acute, imaginative and adventurous. You have nothing to fear.
