Once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. I'm not so big on the tagging thang, so if you want to play along (and you know you do) feel free to cut and do it yerself!

1. I have a teaching certificate, tho I've never been hired to teach public school.

2. I worked my way through college doing temp office work, working in an ER after hours, managing an immunology lab, farm chores and by selling my dairy goat herd off.

3. I have one brother and one sister. I have two stepsisters through my dad and a step brother through one of my moms exes. I see and am in contact with the step sisters significantly more than either of the brothers.

4. Like my teeth? I paid for them myself. most of my dental work was done as an adult and paid for by me, without insurance helping. and there was ALOT of dental work.

5. I dont own a microwave. not really sure what they're for.

6. I was born in Burien WA, moved away when wee, then eventually back to seattle after college.

7. I own my own home. I bought it myself on my single income with no help from parents. it is probably the thing I am the most proud of.

8. I have a pathological fear of running out of food. so I tend to stash things.

9. I once gave a lecture on medieval food to a ROmance Writers of America conference. I even got paid! I've also been on the radio twice and am cited in a book on spices, and have two spice blends of my recipe being sold in a local shop. this is on top of my own publications.

10. I am named on at least one patent that I know of.

11. the smell of licorice makes me nauseous

12. as far as I'm concerned, mint is for toothpaste, mouthwash and chewing gum, not food.

13. I've only been knitting for about two years. sure seems like longer....

14. I have ridden a horse through a medieval village on cobblestone streets in france.

15. although I love to body surf and snorkel, I dont know how to swim

16. I'm a weeper. doesnt take much. dang it.

17. I strongly believe that the Daily Show is not news. Funny as hell, but its not news.

18. I have broken three fingers, my ankle/foot twice, my arm and my hand. all in different accidents, and most within a a year or three of each other.

19. I dont have a TV but do watch dvds on my laptop while knitting or checking email

20. I truely feel our society marginalizes people who dont fit the Family Mold. single people, childless people. pisses me off.

21. I really really want to go to Montreal

22. I've never seen an orca in the wild. crazy for where I live and the amt of time I spend on boats!

23. I'll taste anything that isnt biohazardous, licorice or allergenic for me. I am a total omnivore. my molars prove it.

24. freesia are my favorite flowers, with old style roses being close behind. the smellier the better :)

25. I am one of the few people I know who is actually making a living doing what they went to college for. and I love my job :)

speaking of which...I should probably get going! :D
