Martha, at A Sense of Humor is Essential tagged me for a Meme listing either weird or random facts about myself. Okay, I'm game, so here goes.

The attendent Rules:

1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Share 7 random and/or weird facts about you.
3. Tag 7 random people at the end, and include links to their blogs.
4. Let each person know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs.

Random/Weird Facts:

1. I am a forensic scientist, which means I work in a crime lab. (like CSI, but without the opulent surroundings, spike heels, or having to deal with criminals)

2. When I tell people that, they say "That must be really interesting." My response is "you'd think so, wouldn't you?" There is much disappointment with that response.

3. I hate mowing the lawn. But it is the only household chore, that, when I finish it, I feel a sense of accomplishment.

4. All of the cars I've purchased before my current one have had manual transmissions.

5. My aunt wanted me to join the foreign service and be a diplomat. It took her 10 years to figure out that I have absolutely no tact and would be horrifying in the foreign service.

6. I have my mother's sturdy Polish legs. I knew I had my mother's legs, but I realized that they were sturdy Polish legs when I noticed that a (male) friend of mine who had emigrated from Poland has the same legs as I do. They are nice, shapely legs, but still sturdy and Polish.

7. My husband and I spent 6 years living together and working together - not just in the same building but in the same office, >10 feet away from each other, all day long.

I don't think I know 7 other people to tag for this meme. So, if you're reading this, and haven't already done it, consider yourself tagged!


  1. Great list, thanks so much for playing along. Sturdy Polish legs, ha, ha, I have "muscular legs", proud of them too. CSI films near our house alot, so Not like the real thing I understand. A friend's daughter works CSI up in Sacramento, has great stories of picking out shells from the firing gel as part of rookie initiation.

  2. My husband and I are #7 too - live/work/play/exercise together. It works for us. We'll see for how long;-)

  3. I always wondered how those CSI gals on TV can do their job properly with shirts undone "to there" and with their hair all flowing everywhere. Don't their clothes ever get dirty?

  4. You mean it's not like CSI?




  5. Nope, not like CSI. I only break out the decent clothes if I have to go to court. And then I change when I'm done at court. Yes, jeans and t-shirts/sweatshirts for me!

    And our actual CSI's? Some of them look more like Pigpen from Charlie Brown than anything else.

  6. I have my father's chicken legs. It freaks me out sometimes when I see them in photos.
