Tagged again

Me gots nuthin' else to report, except I'm back in the pool after a short hiatus! Yahoooo

So, I'll respond to tags from Lana and my girl TriShannon. They were to list 6 weird things about me. I guess that means I have to list 12? goes:

1. I don't eat things that swim as their main mode of transportation. I've tried. I just can't do it.

2. When I was a kid, my favorite thing to eat was a McDonald's Filet 'O Fish. WHA-WHA-WHAT?! The horror!

3. I put peanut butter on my pancakes. Syrup is bunknasty.

4. I've got a damn good poker face.

5. I have to sleep with socks on.

6. I have a teddy bear (Teddy) from when I was a kid and pulled all the hair out of it by the time I was, oh, about three. DaisyDuc and TriShannon would always torture me in college, calling him "Baldy" and "Furry" and "Harry" and stringing him up by the light in our room.

7. Cleaning relaxes me. I love to come home after a stressful day, go for a run, and then vacuum.

8. Both of my last names (maiden and married) are difficult to spell and pronounce. One of my very first swimming ribbons for 1st place, no less, had "Sara Avicado" written on the back. (I'm still pissed.)

9. I sometimes enjoy messing with telemarketers.

10. I keep things in my classroom immaculate....but don't open my desk drawers.

11. It really bothers me how President Bush says "nuclear." I mean, REALLY bothers me. I usually yell at the TV loudly when he does it and sometimes throw things. I don't know why.

12. I have a pretty high threshold for girliness. I usually backpack with Matt and 2-3 other guys, and am often the only girl. I go several days without a shower (it's not pretty) and it doesn't bother me TOO much. But when backpacking July '05 in Kentucky at Mammoth Cave, I had a level 5 girl meltdown when we had some "dehydration and tick/chances of Lyme Disease issues" where I sat in the tent and sobbed that "I want to go home and I want some shampoo NOW." The guys knew better than to say a word. I'm pretty sure they all laugh now at it. (I'm finally ready to start laughing)

And now, I need to get on the trainer! I'm going to celebrate my buddy Sarah's 30th tomorrow at my FAVORITE MEXICAN RESTAURANT so I need to do some double duty workouts today and tomorrow to get ready to eat tasty enchiladas.

JenC and E-Speed, have fun at yoga tomorrow and I should be back next week! I'll be stuffing my face with oh-so-healthy grub. :)

Oh--yeah--and if you want to be tagged, you are.

Happy training!

Wes said...

Socks to bed? Oh, the humanity!

Kim said...

youre seriously a funny funny avocado head.

Is Filet-O-Fish even a real food? I've got to admit...growing up in a Catholic community I did my fair share of Filet O Fish for Friday dinner with friends.

The thought of it makes me want to go nukular on someone! Oooops.

I thought I was the only one that messed with telemarketers. I like to just start randomly telling them about the TV show I'm watching or bark like a dog.

walchka said...

Well it seems we must play some poker at our next meet-up. We'll see about this so called poker face. hehe j/k

New favorite word - bunknasty. Love it!

Lana said...

I wish cleaning relaxed me...I'm always in a mad rush to get it done!!

greyhound said...

OK, socks? Now that's just wrong.

And see, you don't have real Mexican food in Ohio. I'm sorry, but it is a fact. Bring yourself to Tejas and we'll teach your tastebuds how to fiesta.

"peanut butter on my pancakes," your missing the total sugar high from syrup.

Socks in bed means cold feet? burrr :)

Amy said...

3. totally agree, Syrup is bucknasty. I fried up some bananas and throwthose on.

We're a pb/pancake family-especially if they are chocolate chip.

If you get a chance, will you shoot me an email? I'm looking into a masters in education program for 5-12 ed and wanted to ask you some teaching questions.

I'm suprised Phamie hasn't commented on #11. It drives her NUTS too!

And I've never heard the term "bunknasty." I think it's my new Word Of The Day.

TriShannon said...

How is Hairy doing, oh I mean Hairless, oops again Teddy?

He, he :)

You're not allowed to give me ANOTHER use for peanut butter! It's my crack.
