Oh No, I've been Tagged!

Somehow I was tagged twice, by Tracy and Helen. Lucky for me they were at the same time, so I figure I only have to do it once. The rules are: 1. Once tagged, link back to the person who tagged you. 2. Post rules on your blog. 3. Post 7 weird or random facts about yourself on your blog. 4. Tag 7 people and link to them. 5. Comment on their blog to let them know that they've been tagged. Now for the seven weird or random facts. 1. I rode a bike today for the first time in twenty years. My husband rides quite a bit and wanted me to join him sometimes, so he bought me a bike. I told him to forget the Tour de France, I wanted a bike for riding through the french countryside, complete with a large basket for flowers, wine and bread. So that is what I got. We still need to find the basket, but it does have a large cushy seat and automatic shifter. Now I just need to find somewhere to ride it that isn't all hills! 2. I can shake my eyeballs. This was quite the talent in high school, but I hadn't thought about it much since then. 3. I can't sleep with socks on, even though my feet are always cold when I get into bed. It drives my husband crazy when I use him to warm them. 4. I was part of the math club in high school and attended the Mu Alpha Theta convention in Huntsville, Alabama. We weren't allowed to leave our hotel rooms at night so my girlfriends and I convinced the security gaurd to buy us candy from the vending machine. We did manage to smuggle boys into our room also. 5. My husband and I date breifly when when we were 14. I came home from a party with his shoe and had to get it back to him. The first time he met my mother he called her mom! We broke up after he stood me up on the ferry to Seattle. We reunited celebrating our twenty-first birthdays, married a year and a half later, and have been together for over 11 years. 6. As a kid, said I wanted 13 kids. Four has me about over the edge, so I think we'll stop here. 7. I know how to kill, pluck and clean a chicken, but I pray I never have to do that again. Now it's time to tag seven other people. I never have been good at picking people. I was always the last picked for the team, often taken as the handicap--that's what I get for being the youngest in the neighborhood. My Christmas card list can get out of hand because I don't want to leave anyone out. I think I will just pick seven random people from the One World One Heart giveaway. If I don't pick you please don't feel left out. I appreciate you coming to read this!

Your seven things are fun. In high school, I learned how to wiggle my ears. Clearly we had some time on our hands!
