Ten Random Things

I was sorta but not really tagged for this meme, so here it goes! Ten random things about me that nobody knows anything about:

1. I am actually quite scared of basements. I have no idea why and some basements creep me out more than others.
2. When I was a little girl, I was quite convinced that I was actually an alien and that eventually my real alien parents would come and take me back home.
3. I often have dreams about houses and factories I have never seen. When I wake up, I can describe exactely how they are laid out. What's even creepier is that I often run across these buildings in my travels and they are, indeed, just like I dreamed them.
4. I won a Presidential Physical Fittness Award in fifth grade.
5. My first real job was as a janitor at Colfax High School during the summer. I have not chewed gum since.
6. There was a time after high school when I really wanted to live as a hermit in the forest.
7. Despite loving my cats, I get awfully tired of the fur all over the place.
8. I was a music geek in high school. I went to state three times for vocal performance and was on the all conference choir my last year of school. I don't sing at all anymore.
9. In junior high and early high school, I had a shaved head and wore combat pants to school.
10. I am actually quite lazy, or at least I feel that I am quite lazy.

Yeah I am glad you did this meme. I thought of you and tagging you as I was falling asleep last night, but obviously you beat me to it.

you shaved your head??

Yes, I am the quiz and meme queen. My cousin just posted several more on MySpace...I simply must answer them!

Josh - I am so glad to learn that you were a genderbending freak. LOVE IT!

And, yes, I shaved my head. It was a 1/4 inch all over except for an extremely long thin nasty little rat tail. There are pictures somewhere at my mom's house that could definitely be used for blackmail. Although my personal favorite was from the year I was 16 and horridly depressed. I was visiting my aunt and her cockatiel decided I was the best perch. So there I am - huge black circles under my eye, frowning up a storm, with a cickatiel dancing on my head. Quite funny now that I look back at it.

Was a gender bending freak, still would be if I didn't think it would interfere with my job. Yeah I am still getting over some issues, but I am much better now (said like Uncle Buddy from Night Court).

Do you want me to find the pics so that you can post them? It will have to wait until aftdr I am home from my recuperating up north.
