7 random things

I have been tagged by Maria of Jubilee on Earth to reveal 7 random things about myself.

I seriously thought about letting y'all know that I love kids and dogs but I thought you might already have figured that out. So, without revealing enough to let the phishers steal me, here goes:

1. I could, at one time, shoot Jose Cuervo like you would NOT believe (27 in one night was the record and no, I did not get sick). Practice does make perfect.

2. I love to drive REALLY fast. I know it's not safe, etc. I don't do it as often as I used to. I just love to drive REALLY fast!

3. My most embarassing moment? Sophomore year of high school, hiding behind the curtains on the stage in the gym/auditorium with some friends watching the guys practice basketball. Does anybody else remember when basketball shorts were short? The stage lights were at the front of the stage with some sort of wooden, hinged covers. Yep, fell through the stage lights, got stuck, and the team coach, with all of the team standing around, had to help me out.

4. My nickname as a child was "faucet face". Go figure.

5. I am scared to death of fire.

6. My natural hair color is actually pretty close to the color I used to dye it all the time. For years, I tried to get the color I already had. What a dingdong. Maybe it was looking in the mirror with those Jose Cuervo eyes.

7. I was raised Catholic, deserted the Church for 28 years (of course I thought they had deserted me) and when I reverted, went to confession. The church did not explode, Father's head did not spin around, and he still looks at me when he talks to me. Life is good.

OK, I am now supposed to tag 7 people. So check your comments, folks. Be afraid, be very afraid.

27 shots of Cuervo? I'd be dead - face down in the toilet.

karmyn - there was a LOT of practice involved. I often start stories of that period in my life with, "back when I was a drunken slut...". Notice, please, that I NEVER took money. Just made really horrendous choices...lol.

I think I'd be passed out somewhere by 3. I'm a total lightweight. Reverts make amazing Catholics. Ever watch Journey Home? I'm watching it on Tivo now. I like to go into confession after my brother. He takes probably an hour. I look saintly after the poor priest hears what he's been up to! You know I don't read the Lord John Gabaldons. Not into his lifestyle.

AFF - my bad. I forgot. Sorry.

You are very brave to share your secrets!!

What are you sorry for? I'm confused! That was you know with a question mark. Not a "Come On, S...you know better." Sorry if it sounded offensive.

Great random things! I loved reading them. Had to laugh at your embarrassing moment (laugh WITH you, not AT you, LOL!).

Thanks for participating and sharing those...

Tequila? 27 shots? I'm getting sick at the mere thought of it.....
