A Random Things Meme

Thanks to Mandy at First You Make a Roux for the opportunity to meme today! The goal of this meme is to provide six random facts about myself... so here we go!

1. I like word games - crossword puzzles, Word Twist, Scrabble, etc.

2. I drink one cup of coffee every morning. After that, I drink hot water for most of the rest of the work day.

3. I have a number of significant scars on my left side - on my knee from a bike accident, on my side from a chest tube, just below my arm pit from lung surgery, and a lumpectomy scar - and only one on my right side, a burn on my right thumb.

4. I love creme brulee, and feel called to eat it any time I can. If it's on the menu, I have to order it. One time I had it with raspberries on the bottom of the bowl... that was my favourite.

5. I am moved by the Psalms.

6. I don't understand the need to have a full weeks' worth of Halloween-related activities in the office, starting a full five days before the day itself. I also don't understand the need to have more than ONE of those days include a requirement to dress up. Don't get me wrong, I like Halloween... but it all just seems like a bit much.

thanks for playing along!!!

I have gotten into word games lately ... I am addicted to scrabble on FB AND I also LOVE those logic puzzle magazines:)

I am curious about the hot water ... is it plain?

Chorus said...

Yep, just plain old hot water. I find that it's soothing on the voice and that it keeps me warm, because my office gets cold. I'm still on a mission to find a really good tea that might jazz up the hot water a little bit, but I haven't found it yet.

I love the Psalms too. They speak to my need for lamentation mixed with thankfulness at certain points in my life.

I am also a HUGE fan of creme brulee. If I know a restaurant serves it, I always save room for it after a meal.
