25 Random Things about ME
1. I love to read, write and talk.
2. I love to listen so long as I don't have to wait too long before I get to read, write or talk.
3. I am a poor wait-er. I don't start reading series until they are finished. Harry Potter about killed me.
4. I love teaching.
5. I've got six kids. They are some of the smartest, cutest people I know.
6. I've got a brother in the Army and a sister in the Navy.
7. I wish that Alice from the Brady Bunch or someone very much like her lived with my family.
8. I love poetry.
9. I detest Huckleberry Finn. I own three or four copies of Cliff Notes for Huck because I've never been able to find the previous copy when I have been forced once again to read the greatest American novel.
10. I love Jane Austen. It cracks me up that Mark Twain detested her works.
11. I love to bake, but hate to cook.
12. When I go to thrift stores, I tend to rearrange their books into more logical order. Atonement doesn't really belong in the religion section. Neither does Paradise.
13. I don't do 13.
14. My bookshelves are a crazy mess.
15. My favorite meal is steak, corn on the cob, tomato soup and baked potatoes. I haven't eaten it in about ten years.
16. Milk is my favorite liquid. Skim. The fattier versions don't get cold enough and feel kind of slimy to me.
17. Seventeen is my favorite number.
18. I joined the Mormon Church/Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints when I was fifteen years old.
19. My family was really miffed about number 18.
20. I can't swim well, but I love water. I wish I could be in a pool all summer long.
21. I blog at www.supermisc.blogspot.com . (But you know that. Did I promise revelations? No I promised double dipping.)
22. I met my husband when I was twenty-two, even though we lived within two miles of each other for the majority of our childhoods.
23. I still don't know my twelve times tables perfectly. And I always have to think about 7x8, 8x6, and 6x7. (I can figure them out, though. Yay me!)
25. I homeschool my kids. All of them some of the time. Some of them most of the time. They are crazy smart and keep me from succumbing to senility.
