Five Things You May Not Know About Me

Leonie at chocolate covered musings tagged me for this meme. I have to admit that I can't recall what I have revealed on this blog before and what I haven't. There are things I know that I haven't revealed - that's because I'm not going to! And other things I know I haven't revealed, because they are really rather trivial. So it's a good thing that the word "may" is in there.

1) I used to work as a forensic scientist.

2) I have five grown children, four of whom still live at home (they must like it here!).

3) I can't whistle, but I can touch the tip of my nose with my tongue.

4) I once did a firewalk. I am definitely not a mystic and I'm not an adrenaline junkie either. But I'm open to new experiences, if other people are doing it and I think it's safe and rational. This was part of science week at my daughter's school. I got a small blister on one foot.



5) I once had a quilt published in Quilters Newsletter Magazine.

If anyone would like to do this, consider yourself tagged (leave a comment to that effect, and I will come and read it).

Hi Catherine,
I just wanted to give you a heads up that
I sent out your mug swap package on Tuesday because the PO was closed on monday. I think it should get to you in 4 or 5 days.
Hope all is well with you!
XO,
Melba

Cool new stuff to know about you! I think firewalking looks scary, but I'd probably try it if I got the chance. And I wish now that I'd known about the QNM thing before I did my big purge a few months ago and got rid of 20 years worth of issues so I could've looked yours up! (I'm sure I must have seen it at some point, but since I didn't know you then I wouldn't have known to pay special attention to it.)

We have two things in common then. I can't whistle either, but I CAN touch my nose with my tongue! Oh, and I would definitely have tried the firewalking!

You know, as soon as I read you could touch your nose with your tongue, I instictively reached out my own to check if I could. Must be tbe monkey part of my brain-wanting mimicry. Oh-I can't by the way!
