7 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Me

January 29 , 2009

Once upon a time

an internet meme started making its loops around and eventually I got named once by Tara Brown and once by Cheryl Lead-Gledhill.  You share 7 things people probably don’t know about you and then you tag 7 more people to do the same and around it goes again.  So here we go…

My 7 things You Probably Didn’t Know About Me

  1. I have never played Guitar Hero and I don’t want to. I don’t like the music. Now if someone had a Saxophone version maybe I would. :P
  2. I’ve never seen a shooting star. I’ve tried a few times and failed.
  3. I like owning power tools and knowing how to change a tire, or a car battery. I get really frustrated when I hear of women playing that.. “oh I’m a girl” card. If you own a car you should be able to change a tire without AAA.
  4. Mr Roger’s Neighborhood was my favorite show when I moved to the USA. I watched him til I was about 12 or 14. I related to him, he took off his shoes when he came in the house like we did in ours. He was a good example for kids and made me feel safe.
  5. The kids on the playground bullied me because I was Asian and asked if I was related to Bruce Lee (since my last name was Li, they didn’t realize it was spelled differently).  My answer was, “Yes.” Yeah I lied but it Karate Kid was also in fashion at the time so all I had to do to get them to leave me alone was the crane pose.
  6. My pet turtle..I let my cousin borrow it for a science project on mazes. When I got him back I put him in the front yard and went in to watch tv. When I came back outside he was gone. One month later my dad came in looking sad. He said he found my turtle… after the lawn mower found him first.
  7. I used to buy clothes from Target size 14 kids section until I was 30. I liked the pants because I didn’t have to hem them.

Dear Cindy,

A tear fell when I read that you haven’t seen a shooting star.

You, me, nighttime, sky, shooting star. It’s a date.

I’ve been there when someone else saw it but by the time I look its gone. I think they just think its one and its really a plane. :P

I actually just saw one last week. While Greg and I were sitting in the hot tub. But it’s REALLY dark in our neighborhood and that helps you see so much more.

It wasn’t the first time, but it was the first time in a while. :) Come to PHX—we’ll watch them!

Love, Stef.

Aww! You, me, & the Perseids meteor shower mid-August! We’ll find you a shooting star!

Sorry about your turtle. :-(

Thanks for tagging me! I’m redesigning & migrating my site to WordPress (finally!) so I’ll add my 7 Things to the new blog!  So excited!  And, of course, you’ll get a pre-launch sneak peak. ;-)
