Another Award..I Blush..

I've been given another award. 7 things you don't know about me...but may find interesting, or simply amusing. Ok, here we go:
1. I've started back to the gym. These are the shoes I wore to the gym on Monday. Do you see the problem? They are two different shoes. So, number one on the list..Sometimes, I'm not the brightest girl on the block.2. The one and only time I flew first class, was coming back from Peru. I took off my shoes and took a nap. When I woke up and put my shoes on, they were soaking wet. The toddler in front of me peed in her sleep. The pee funneled off the non porous luxury leather seats into my shoes. The shoe on the left in the above photo, is one of those shoes. Number two, I'm a little gross, and still wear pee shoes. It's the gym!!! I have zero vanity there.

3. When I was 21, I went to L.A. for a few weeks. While there, through an odd chain of events, we ended up staying at Meridith Baxter Birney's house. He daughter took us to one of the local hot spots where I was hit on by...Gary Coleman - the cute little kid from Different Strokes. Not so cute anymore. In fact, downright skanky. For years after that, my family and friends thought it was sooo funny to use the line, "what choo talkin 'bout!"
4. I wear gum boots. A lot. Seriously. More than any other shoe or boot I own. Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. They were $6.00 and have lasted for 9 years.

5. I am deslyxic ..I mean dyslexic. When I was little, they didn't have special aid or awareness like today. I was put in the cloakroom - which they called the 'special' learning place. I was the only one in there.

6. That probably has much to do with the fact that ....I'm incredibly insecure. I've worked with some of the best magazines in North America, but was freaking out each time.
7. I honestly believe that I am a really good show tune singer. Seriously. And I'm not half bad at opera too.

Now, to pass this along to 7 others - I believe that is the rule here.
