Seven Random Things About Me

I've been tagged by X Squared to play the Seven Things MeMe:
Here are the rules: Each player starts with 7 random facts/habits about themselves. People who are tagged need to write on their own blog about their seven things, as well as these rules. You need to choose 7 people to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they have been tagged and to read your blog!
So here goes - 7 random things about me in no particular order:
  1. I like to travel in circles. That is, if I go one way, I like to return by a different path.
  2. I was a nanny in a former life, both during college and the first year after college.
  3. My junior year in high school I was obsessed with NHL hockey. I attended, watched on tv or listened on the radio to each of the 80 games played by the Washington Capitals during the regular season, not to mention the play offs. If I recall it had partly to do with a school girl crush I had on one of the players.
  4. I had a faith crisis in my late teens/early 20's as I struggled with my relationship with God and the institutional church. I got a job on Sundays so that I wouldn't have to go to church with my family.
  5. In my mid 20's as I began to feel the pull of the spiritual life, I thought seriously about becoming a Quaker and even attending meetings, but it just wasn't the right fit.
  6. I can only cook if I follow an exact recipe. I'm not good at improvising, and if the instructions aren't particularly clear things won't be edible.
  7. Surprisingly given #6, I don't like to follow patterns when I cross stitch or do other crafty projects. If I follow the instructions, it's a flop. If I make it up, it is at least interesting and occasionally presentable.
Now, another random fact about me is that I don't like to tag people by name for MeMes. However, if you're reading this and you'd like to play - either on your own blog or in the comments here - please do so!

Quakers are seriously cool, but I didn't know if they'd appreciate my video game habit. Never been very good at cross-stitch or embroidery. But I discovered last spring that I could knit.

Thanks for playing! :)

I had no idea you were a cross stitcher! I'm only recently learning to NOT follow the pattern when I stitch - used to be, when I changed colors or tried to add something, it was a disaster.
