I got tagged!

I got tagged for my first meme! Nell over at Chicken Knits tagged me. Thanks Nell! :)


Each person tagged gives 7 random facts about themselves. Those tagged need to write in their blogs the 7 facts, as well as the rules of the game. You need to tag seven others and list their names on your blog. You have to leave those you plan on tagging a note in their comments so they know that they have been tagged and to read your blog.

Here are my facts:

1. As a kid I lived overseas for nine years with my parents in Japan, Turkey and Switzerland. I have been fortunate enough to have visited 25 different foreign countries and 25 U.S. states, but I have only ever lived in one state, Pennsylvania.

2. I once got to sit in the cockpit of a commercial airliner for the landing, but almost didn’t take them up on their offer because I was too shy. It was an amazing experience! This was in the late 1980’s, and it was on a Scandinavian Airlines flight from Copenhagen, Denmark to Istanbul, Turkey.

3. I am painfully shy and can be very uncomfortable in social situations like parties where I don’t know anyone.

4. My husband and I bought the house I grew up in from my dad.

5. I am very afraid of thunderstorms, especially when I am home alone. Sometimes if there are storms expected, I’ll wimp out and go to the mall just so I don’t have to be by myself.

6. I didn’t start liking PB&J (peanut butter and jelly) sandwiches until my senior year of college. This was most likely because my mom hated the smell of peanut butter and never had it around the house.

7. My “guilty pleasure” is that I watch a soap opera (The Young and the Restless) which I’ve watched ever since one of my college roommates got me hooked on it. My excuse now is that it provides great knitting time!

Aaaaggghhhh - I've been tagged. This will be tough, but I'll try it. This will be my first tag/meme. I don't even think I know of 7 people I can tag. Can I just choose anyone?
