1. The player lists 6 facts/habits about themselves.
2. At the end of the post, the player tags 6 people and posts their names, and then goes to their blog and leaves them a comment, letting them know they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog for the rules.
Here we go:
1- I Don't have a middle name. And when I was younger and we went bowling, I'd use the letter O as my middle initial to fill the 3 spaces--it makes a word, and I guess that word makes me vain.
2-My uncle is Mel Gibson.
3-I am currently enrolled in 3 Special Ed classes. As a student. That really doesnt make me sound very smart.
4-I am fairly paranoid. I blame a teacher I had when I was like 10 who told me about all the things a particular stalker does to his victims--horrifying. I've been doing a lot better lately...and even when I'm not doing so well, I've gotten a lot better at hiding it... ;-)
5-I talk to my car. She has a name. And a few nicknames. I think that if I'm nice to her, she'll be nice to me. And it's worked so far.
6-I have a dream that one day I will have a lot of money. Not because I want a big house, or lots of expensive toys, but because there are a few things I want to do. I'm really poor right now, but one day I want to be able to say "dont worry about the bill, it's on me" regularly. Just once I want to be able to say "hey, I' m taking a cruise to Alaska--you wanna come? It's already paid for" or "I am going to Africa, but I dont want to go alone, so I bought an extra ticket--will you please join me?" I will take working/service vacations and go to New Zealand and build a house like my sister did, or work in an orphanage in Austria for a month, or help teach Brazilians how to set up a school. I want to do everything and see everywhere--and while I know that will never happen (at least not in this life), but I want to do as much of it as I can.
And since everyone I know in the blogging world has already been tagged, I am going to break the chain...I will probably remain "It" indefinately, but maybe one day I will decide to pass it on...after this post is long forgotten, or I've made more friends. On second thought, I do know someone who just started a blog, and this would be a great entry to get her going, so Val--you're IT!!!

At school on Monday I gave this kid directions to whatever he was looking for, and then my class happened to be on the way there...so we walked together. But then he wanted to walk down the stairs and into the building of where my classroom was...Fine whatever--I'd never see him again...Right? WRONG--when I came out of class 3 hours later he was there waiting for me. He thought it would be nice to walk me to my car--but he wanted to stop by his car first. I said " no, that's ok. I can see my car from here. You can go to your car, and I'll go to mine." But he insisted that I wait for him to go to his car because he had something for me...I was pretty weirded out by this, since I didn't know him, and seriously, what would this kid I met today have for me? In his car? Weird. So anyway, I waited in the institute parking lot while he went to his car to get whatever it was...And do you know what he came back with? Here's a picture of it:Thats right--a flower. A red Rose. That was nice of him...but along with the 150 personally invasive questions he'd already asked it was a little too much, way too soon.
And last night I went to my fav. little coffee shop to get a hot coaco and read my book club book, but instead of getting nice quite time by myself, I had the peasure of spending an hour entertaining another young man who was a little too forward in his attempt at kindness. I'm flattered, I really am, but are you really so ignorant to nonverbal cues that you think I will kiss you at the end of the intrusive evening? Or did you just think I'd find your lip-infusion gloss irrestable?

PS--You would have all gotten a random "I love you" text message from me, except that I was afraid of texting while I was driving.
