Yep, I ripped this off from another blog I just found on FMBT blog hop.  This is a fun list, so I think it will provide some interesting answers instead of my normal rants of late about my eye and how computers should just *know* exactly what I want and do it.....

So hmmm.... Day - "A recent picture and 15 facts about you".  Ok.

Is that "arty" or what?
Ok, now facts:

1- I took this picture wearing no makeup.
2- I am a Grandma.
3- I'm only 39.
4- I am a nurse.
5- I've been married twice.
6- I have two kids, both girls.
7- I once tried to break my arm, and/or leg in the 4th grade by going way out on a flimsy branch of a tree because casts were cool, but I only succeeded in crashing to the ground and blacking out for 30 mins.
8- I am a secret sewer (it has to be secret because everyone my age thinks that's what "old" people do).
9- I am the oldest of 5 children- 18 years older than the youngest.
10- I like to play drums and sing on Guitar Hero, and I'm not being modest by saying I ROCK!  The computer tells me I do every song.
11- My favorite band is Tool (followed by A Perfect Circle and Led Zepplin).
12- This is getting hard.
13- The blog that got me started was Hyperbole and a Half- check it out if you haven't already!
14- This is getting really hard.....maybe I should go off and read, my favorite pastime, bar none.
15- I'm learning how to play piano.  (I tried to upload a video, but after 30 mins I thought, "Wow, really?  30 mins and still no video?!)

Hahaha!  I tried to cop out on a couple of those, but thinking of things that might possibly make yourself sound interesting to strangers is haaaaard!

Ok, tomorrow: Day 2, why are you crazy?  Favourite movies.  I can do that.

Remember, it's just a ride.

FMBT Part 2- Can I do this?

I'm supposing I can!

Just in case anyone is wondering, I work on Tuesdays, so I start this in the morning before I go to work, and then have to wait all day to go looking around at everyone else's blogs.  It's a little clumsy, but it seems to get the job done.

For all you new followers, you can check out some of my posts here, or here, or just surf down the list of blogs and pick the ones that jump out at you.

Thanks for stopping by!

Remember, it's just a ride.
