Jay's tag

All right, so I've been tagged by Jay. I suppose I should get this out of the way....actually, it's kind of funny. A friend and I used to make Top 10 Lists all the time in high school - what a throwback!

Ten reasons I stink:

10. I tend to make snap judgements about people. Not very nice, I know.
9. I spend way too much time on the internet.
8. I'm terrible at housekeeping...just ask my sister. :)
7. I take things personally - one of the top reasons that Matt and I don't work well together. I call it "yelling", he calls it "speaking loudly so he can be sure I hear him".
6. I have a bad e-bay habit. I'm doing my best to break it, but somehow money spends so easily on the internet!
5. I have a short attention span - I get really excited about something, collect everything I can related to it, then lose interest. For example, I have about 20 cross-stitch kits/patterns in my stash, but I've only finished about 3 projects.
4. I'm a snacker.
3. I'm very uncomfortable in group settings or meeting new people.
2. I procrastinate.
1. I'm terrible about keeping in touch with old friends. (I didn't even get Christmas cards out this year *gasp*)

Ten reasons I rock:

10. I am fairly crafty, when I get around to finishing a project.
9. I am generous - I especially like making things for people.
8. I switched from regular Coke to Diet Coke. Ask anyone if that isn't a major accomplishment! (Although, I am now hopelessly addicted to said Diet Coke.)
7. I finished 7 years of college and became a doctor (of veterinary medicine).
6. I have a supremely beautiful little girl (okay, so I can only take partial credit, but still....)
5. I can fold my tongue to look like a three-leaf clover.
4. In a little over a month, I will put on a bathing suit and get into a pool in front of other people, just so that aforementioned little girl can take swimming lessons.
3. In general, I'm not a complainer. Especially about the fact that Matt works about 23 hours a day and maybe sees Mallory for 5 hours a week. Not that I'm complaining....
2. I have been very good at getting Mallory's picture taken for all the major milestones (3, 6, 9, 12, 18 months).
1. I managed to finish this list! This was a lot harder than it probably should have been. Wow.

YAY you finished it! I would love to hear you come in to an exam room to see my dog and say "hi, I'm Dr Evans" SO COOL! It was always my dream to become a dr.

OK -- I'm going to need a picture because I just can't imagine it! You can fold your tongue to look like a 3 leaf clover???!!! Your next post better have a picture of it!!

Jay said...

Yes, that folding your tongue trick sounds worthy of a picture. Hehe

Thanks for doing this tag... there maybe another one coming soon. Hahah

you did do pretty good..I wouldn't even attempt doing it just because I would be too embarrased/shy(maybe not right word) to share my thoughts (Maybe that would be Number 1. of why "I stink"). Otherwise if I did try to complete it 3/4 of the answers would be "because I do/am"
-Yes I always secretly am totally impressed by the "DR" tag You have. SSssssssooooooo weird (to hear Dr. Brenda), does that sound weird to you too?

How did you get to be this good? Its amazing to see someone put so much passion into a subject. Im glad I came across this. Im glad I took the time to read on past the first paragraph. Youve got so much to say, so much to offer. I hope people realise this and look into your page.

This layout is so stellar. How did you manage to make a blog thats as smart as it is sleek? I mean, its like an Aston Martin --smart and sexy at the same time. Ive got to say, the layout alone made me come back to this blog again. But now that Ive read what youve got to say, Ive got to share it with the world!

Can I just say what a relief to find someone who actually knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people need to read this and understand this side of the story. I cant believe youre not more popular because you definitely have the gift.
