Me Break, Me Meme

I'm sorry but I am going to have to take a break. #1 I have no blogging material for the next few days, and #2 I will be out of town later this week. I hate to leave my home, but I have pressing matters that almost require me to be in the Northwest.

Please pray for me if you think of it. Here, in the meantime, is a meme that Leslee tagged me for:

7 Random facts/habits about R (I will then have to "tag" seven people in turn):

1. When I ate fruit my favorites were oranges and mangoes.

2. I used to be able to run 8 miles without stopping a few times a week (then I would scale down and only run five miles other days) but now I have gotten so behind that I only run about 3-4 miles maybe five days a week. But who cares. I can't think of anything interesting right now!

3. I passed out once from someone pressing my heart. I fell on the floor and thought that I was on the floor at a McDonald's with people looking at me. I opened my eyes and saw the people who did it to me laughing their sides off.

4. Umm, I have a habit of playing my guitar without the pick and use my thumb instead. It is a bad, bad, habit, but my guitarist friend says that it is not so bad. I don't know what to believe now.

5. In junior high I was a huge Star Trek: The Next Generation fan. I was in love with Wil Wheaton. What was I thinking?

6. In California once I played with a friend barefoot right by the freeway off-ramp. Smart. I was probably six. I cut my foot multiple times on an old rusty grate and some strangers pulled up and asked me if my friend and I wanted a ride home. Stupidly enough we took the ride home and got home. I was in deep trouble.

7. I write music and sing. I don't talk about it much here though...I used to think I would have a recording contract by now and am resigned to the fact that I must live my life to the fullest as it is and be content with where God has me because I am His.

I will now tag Allrighthere, SprinklerBandit, Graybandit, Lyssa, the Woman, Shealy, and Nat.

I remember watching him on the Weakest Link: Star Trek Edition back in 2001. That makes me feel old. I kinda wanna barf, now.

If it makes you feel better, I had a HUUUUUUGE crush on Mirina Sirtis in my teen years. I'll not discuss that deep dark secret any further.

I'm wondering if you'll be in my neck of the woods of the Northwest.

I watched the premier of Star Trek: The Next Generation on my honeymoon because my husband is a Trekkie. He was very disappointed. :-)

Me will miss you!

Praying all turns out well!


Leslee said...

What exactly do you mean "when I ate fruit" you don't now? Why? I've never ran a single mile, I couldn't imagine doing 8...in a row...without stopping or passing out! I've never done the press on the heart thing, sounds scarey! Why would playing the guitar without a pick be a "bad" thing? Never really got into The Next Generation. You should have been in trouble for playing by the freeway off-ramp and taking a ride from strangers! I want to hear more of your music!

Be well my friend. Peace (and not in a boyz in the hood kinda way either).

I have a new account... dumb thing. This comment should link you too it, I think.

Anyways. I'll be praying for you this week. :'(

R said...

Emma---Thank you, I need that.

Jared--You are not old. I keep saying that I am old and everyone still laughs at me. Yes, Marina. I always thought she was pretty.

Jennifer--I think you are closer in to the coast than I will be. I will be in ID, near the capital.

Woman---Thank you. I will miss you too.

Leslee---Too many questions!! :)

I don't eat a lot of fresh fruit (or fresh anything) because I have a stupid condition called OAS (oral allergy syndrome) and I literally get rashes all over, my mouth swells up, I itch everywhere. Lately I can eat all berries, apples and grapes with little to no reaction. Everything else I can't eat period.
You can't hear someone play the guitar if they play with their thumb.---At least not very well. It is my little trick to not have very much attention drawn to my playing.

More music to come. It has been hard getting stuff together, although I do keep writing some and have plenty more to record.

SprinklerB--Thank you.

too bad you aren't visiting some of us over here in the NW on your trip!

I was a fan of Next Generation, but listen to this: when I was a kid, I LOVED "Lost In Space". Why? Two words: Angela Cartwright.

KingJaymz said...

This is turning into a "teenage crush confession" bb strain. Anyone else care to confess?

R said...

Christian Slater and Kiefer Sutherland in Young Guns. The cool thing is that I married a Kiefer look alike (so strangers off the street say).

~Jennifer said...

Well darn. I'm on the West side of the mountains in Washington.

graybandit said...

The Woman said...
