Ten Interesting Things About Me....

I saw this challenge on another blog, and decided to try it. If you decide to accept the challenge on your blog, please let me know! I would love to read your top ten! OK, here are mine:

1. My husband and I lived around the corner from each other when I was five and he was twelve. We played with some of the same kids (we found this out after meeting when I was 22 and he was 27! When we met all those years later where we both worked at General Electric, I was dating his best friend - LOL!

2. I rarely get bored...

3. I have one older sister and two younger brothers. The youngest of those brothers is eleven years younger than me. He was a "surprise" - tee hee! When he was little, he couldn't pronounce my name. So he called me La La. I hated it when he finally learned how to say Linda... I missed that little voice going around the house calling out La La - La La....

4. I'm actually shy. People who know me laugh hysterically when I say this....

5. I love to look through dictionaries and books on grammar....

6. I walk around the same one mile block 4 to 5 times a week - and it never bothers me to do the same walk...

7. As a child, I hated it when my family would sing happy birthday to me. I would crawl under the table and cry. As an adult, I still dislike it and threaten death to anyone who tries - ha!

8. My best friend is my former sister-in-law. She was married to my "older" "younger" brother....

9. I leave a strand of christmas lights up every year - until about March or April.

10. When I was younger, probably up until I was in the sixth grade, the only color my Mom said I wanted to wear clothes-wise was brown....

That is great. Some of those are things about me too. I walk the same mile everyday and I love it and I carry a dictionary and grammer book with me in my work bag everyday. :o)
