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.
