Brooke tagged me. So here goes...

1. Link to the person that tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Share lots and lots of non-important things/ habits /quirks about yourself.
4. Tag at least 3 people at the end of your post and link to their blog.
5. Let each person know they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

6. Let the confessions begin.

1- Smiths Market put their “no bikes” sign on their door after I didn't bring a lock for my bike, had to take my bike inside, started daydreaming and before I knew it I was riding my bike down the aisles but snapped back to reality while i was catching some speed.

2- I used to have a big jar of earwax that I collected from candling peoples' ears. Ear wax and bodily fluids are so fascinating!

3- I once convinced a filthy rich plastic surgeon to take me up in his hot air balloon on his second time EVER of flying it and I kept begging him to go higher and higher until he said that we were so high it was illegal and by the time we got back down we missed the landing field by a long shot and crash landed repeatedly (we kept bouncing) in a mountain range and the hot air balloon basket was ripped to shreds and man - that guy was a bad pilot. And the next time he flew (with a new basket) he said it was an accident but i think he meant to land in the Cafe Rio parking lot.

4- I once rode a coal car to pocatello (but I was trying to get to portland). the train yard "bull" very politely kicked me off and asked that i wait until after his shift to get back on. The gritty coal whipped in my face and made it look like I had permanent eyeliner for days after.

5- I have favorite outside sleeping places around Provo and I always know when the sprinklers will turn on.

6- I'm the best driver I've ever met. but I hate driving. One of these days I will open my front door and walk to Mexico.

And now...

Suzy, Mirjam, and Paige...you're it. And Paige, please tell about the depends. please.

i think some of that ear wax was mine! your ear-wax-elimination method was freaky cool.

thanks brooke! you know those "wheely" shoes? i get so jealous of all the kids wearing them at costco. don't you think they should make them in adult sizes???

wendy, haha! that's right! and did you love the fire part or what?! having fire so close to mine or someone else's head, kinda cool and thrilling.

I'm going to go ahead and admit that most of your revelations terrify me. ok just 2, 3, 4 and 5. does that make me boring? yes. i'm truly happy for you that those things didn't terrify you.

Quel said...

pamo, HA! you boring? not a chance!

for the record i was petrified. but the excitement gets the best of me every time!! you should read what brooke used to do...and remember how on campus people would fall asleep all over the library using their backpack as a pillow? to me that's way more more trusting and scary.

I know, I'm kinda late, but I finally found a minute and "fulfilled" the tag... And I have an ear fact, too. There you go.
