7 Not So Random Things About Me

I was tagged not once , but twice by Ashley and by Clio! I wasn't going to participate b/c I'm bent on keeping this blog technical and to the point, but I'll bite since I've enjoyed reading your Randomness that has personalized you more.

I've also noticed no one is truly random in these posts; such as, "I pick my toe nails". You are all sharing 'who I am and where I come from" type randomness. I am glad for your posts and I will follow suit.

1. In all my years of babysitting, being a sibling and working with kids, I've enjoyed being around young boys the most. I never played with dolls. That said, I think I'll end up with a girl.

2. I travelled Solo to many islands in Indonesia when I was 24.

3. I have an affinity for water: drinking water, bath water, ocean water, stream water. (yes, I am a Pisces Clio). I am daydreaming about a water birth .

4. I feel guilty in IF blog and board land that my first IVF was such a success - thus far .

5. Being in the wilderness is my favorite vacation / or holiest church.

6. I was a strict vegetarian for 8 years until I returned to Memphis TN in '96 and drove past my favorite BBQ Joint. I cook almost every day. My favorite processed food is Cheese Whiz. I buy organic as often as I am able.

7. I work for a company on 5th Ave in NYC from a cow pasture in the Ozarks (shhh).

Now I am instructed to tag a few others to keep this flame alive:

(if you click over to any of these gals, will you kindly let them know they've been tagged?)

Thanks for sharing! No guilt - I love happy ending IF stories!

I love boys too - always wanted boys more than girls.

I am a pisces too and TOTALLY understand your comment about water - my favorite place to be in the world is on the beach or on a boat, on any form of water.

And by the way, your successful (thus far) IVF gives the rest of us a lot of hope!

You should not feel guilty about your successful IVF. You have been down just as hard a road as the rest of us have and you deserve it just as much as the rest of us do. My sister's been a vegetarian since she was eight years old. Got it in her head one day that she wasn't going to eat meat and hasn't since. Who can pass up a good BBQ though??? Thanks for sharing!

thanks Virginia for allowing something other than being technical and to the point in your blog! LOL :D
lots of water, huh? islands... how wonderful. I don't like showers and baths, but I looooove the ocean. Go figure. What an amazing advanture to go explore on your own.
drop the guilt :) IF is part of your journey and I love your success story.

Hi darling...

Sorry for this late message but then again better late than never. CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I am so happy for you. Sorry for being late. You know I was away on surgery right? So yeah here I am.

Don't feel guilty about your success thru IVF. It is nice to hear success story. It gives people like me some hope.

Perhaps you should write to Kraf.t and ask them if they could make an organic Whiz. THAT would be cool.

I totally hear you on the guilt factor. I constantly feel like I should apologize :)

Thanks for the tag. Look for all the wonderfully crazy, random things about me.
