25 things...

So enough people have tagged me to write 25 random things. But you should feel no obligation to write anything. I mean, I'm sure I'd love to know more things about you all, but I understand the busy life so no stressing over this one, alright?

1. I went to Washington D.C. twice as part of Idaho State's knowledge bowl team in high school. I was the good luck charm.

2. I don't have a favorite color. I like some colors in some places and other colors in other places.

3. I have a really hard time remembering to take the trash out. It's a good thing I live with a girl who thinks about that! Yay Katie!

4. I have never worn gray until this year and am still not sure if I like myself in it.

5. I've never been kissed.

6. Cucumbers make my tongue numb.

7. I grew up listening to Keith Green and Steve Green. This made me very confused about music artists' names and musicians in general. I've never recovered.

8. I sing and dance in my kitchen when I'm all alone. But I think everyone does that.

9. My fuzzy blue hot water bottle is named "Derf".

10. When dogs first meet me, many of them pee on themselves. Not kidding--it's called submissive urination.

11. I was invited as an economics expert to speak on T.V. on the current economic status of the United States. I declined.

12. People think I'm nice.

13. I know how many amps most appliances in my house take.

14. I wish I knew more about wireless internet routers. We have five in our house and I can't get any of them to work.

15. I like to have my toenails painted in dark colors.

16. I'm a very huggy and touchy person. I love having my girl-friends or my family stand with their arm around me or play with my hair.

17. I dislike wearing jili kurdi. I always feel so awkward.

18. I have journals from my whole life since I was seven. I still haven't decided if I will ever let anyone read them. (But that first one is hilarious!)

19. I have a fetish for beautiful blank books and nice leather bound Bibles.

20. I'm a fairly private person who has to work to open up to people. That makes things like this tagging-quiz-thing fairly difficult for me.

21. I'm very afraid of letting people down.

22. I am wrestling over the concept of hope. What is it exactly and how does it work as a part in faith? Hebrews 11:1

23. I don't like scotch or port.

24. I wish I had time to write a book, a really good book. I have an intense desire to be a part of creating something grand.

25. I would love to shoot an AK and rappel out of a helicopter--not at the same time though. Can we?

I've read so many of these things and have enjoyed each and every one of them. Something new about my friends pops up and completely takes me by surprise. But honestly, "submissive urination"? That's something new about you AND about dogs. BTW, ask to shoot an AK on your next picnic. I did it in Chumchamal (sp??) and it was a blast. pun intended.

"12. People think I'm nice."

They don't think... they know. :)

Colleen,
That's a really good idea! I think I'll use that for my blog if we have any more delays in getting over there. I noticed that, strangely enough, some of the thingsyou said are true for me as well. Whoda thunk it? lol.
Hope that things are going well over there. Blessings.
Rae

Colleen, with every email, you ARE writing a really good book! And you ARE a part of creating something grand! Thank you, Sweet Friend, for laboring selflessly in the building of God's Kingdom!
