Patience, grasshopper.

I know I said I had something to show you. I do. But I can't seem to go from scan to pdf to uploading to blogger right now. Something about a corrupted file . . . whatever.

It's a picture of ME and I am not corrupt!


Well, I've been tagged several times on facebook to post 25 random things about myself and I haven't done it. Because not only am I NOT corrupt, I am not random.

Haha.

Like you believe that.

I thought I'd give you five for now, and YOU didn't even ask!

1. I love a good bargain. Wait, let me rephrase. I LOVE A GOOD BARGAIN. Today I bought Bryce a suit, two blazers, 6 pair of dress slacks, and 6 ties, for a grand total of . . . $352.48. My receipt said "You saved $962.12" and I nearly fainted from awesomeness.

2. You wouldn't know it to look at the rest of me, but I have freakishly thin fingers.

3. After coming to accept and even enjoy my infertility, I fear that God will "surprise" me with a biological baby someday.

4. I'm not proud of this, but one time I accidently stole a magnet from a shop at Disneyland, courtesy of a sticky-fingered toddler. I took it home, stuck it on my fridge, and eventually couldn't stand the guilt. I threw it away. I hated to be reminded that I was an accomplice to a mini-Mickey crime.

(Get it, mini . . . Mickey?)

5. I have memorized every ward list for every ward I've ever been in. I can't help it; it just happens. For the strangers, I know each family member's name and what street they live on, including ZIP code. For people I actually know, it's names, addresses, phone numbers, and birthdates. I usually keep this fact to myself because it makes me look like a stalker.

Then end . . . for now.

I love #5. I too love to look at the non-abbreviated list of ward members and see when their birthday is and where they live, etc. I don't think I'm to weird but I do have a lot of ward members telephone numbers memorized. what other 'weird' things do you do? Hmmmm...maybe that's why I like you so much.

Awesome deal on the suits!
I was at Macys a yr ago and the suits were 50% off the discounted price! There were some 5 and 600 dollar suits marked down to 200 and 175... then HALF off that! I bought thomas two 600 dollar suits and paid under 250.... LOVE sales!

I love that!! I am the same way when it comes to wanting to know where people live. It's just so fun! I don't think your a stalker but I'm sure there are a few people in my ward that think I am. For example...I tried getting a hold of this one girl I met at Stake Conference. She just got married to one of Jesse's best friends growing up and they just had a kid. Well, needless to say, I had no such luck getting back with her. I started to feel like a stalker and finally stopped the phone calls and visits. We found out they moved just 2 weeks ago. Totally bummed. O well! We'll find him one day!

fun list! i think that memorizing thing is a gift. i have a friend who knows everyone's numbers and once we were together and someone asked me my number and i got two of the numbers mixed up and she corrected me. i was floored. who knew there were more of you savants out there!

does it carry over into math? are you gifted in math?

Rebecca and Co. said...

Sadly, I am not NOT gifted when it comes to math. My numbers ability is strictly limited to memorization.

P.S. Now I'm afraid people are going to quiz me on the ward list and I'll look like an idiot at the end. LOL
