Seven Things

I was tagged by Kim with this meme. I’m supposed to list Seven Unknown Facts about me, which hopefully won’t be completely boring to anyone but me and a couple of immediate family members. So here goes:

1. The house I grew up in had a lake behind it that we swam in. One summer, we noticed the sudden appearance of freshwater jellyfish. They were the size of quarters, and apparently harmless, so we swam along with them.

2. In high school I kept a crayfish as a pet for two years. I started out with two that I brought home from science class, but I wasn’t aware that they are not very discriminating about who they eat.

3. I had a crush on Pete from The Mod Squad and I wanted to be Laurie from The Partridge Family.

4. I sometimes wear men’s cologne.

5. I’ve been to Paris three times: the first time I was left stranded by my travel mate, the second time I got engaged to my husband, and the third time I went with my whole family.

6. I have met two Nobel Prize recipients.

7. I’m fascinated by crop circles. What are those things? Fifty or sixty of them appear every summer in the UK alone. Freaky!

Now it’s your turn. If you haven’t played yet and would like share your list of seven things, consider yourself tagged!

I didn't know there was such a thing as freshwater jellyfish. You learn something new every day, I guess. :)

I loved "The Mod Squad".

And how romantic getting engaged In Paris,
I would love to hear that story.

Is it old spice?

PJ Hoover said...

Cause crop circles are awesome!
Not boring at all!

Green Girl in Wisconsin said...

Wow, freshwater jellyfish. How odd. How did they get there?

Great list--you are fascinating!

I'm intrigued by #2...now there's a story right there just waiting to be told! Thanks for your comment on my blog today! Come back and visit anytime! :)

Rena said...

I'm interested in the cologne too. :)

Carrie - I've never really heard of them since, but apparently they're not that uncommon. They are weird, though.

Louise - Yeah, I have to admit that was pretty romantic...

Suzie - LOL. Definitely not Old Spice!

PJ - I know, I want to see one of those up close!

Green Girl - We always wondered how they got there, too. At the time we couldn't find anyone who knew about them.

Tattingchic - He was more interesting than I would have guessed - every day he'd rearrange the stones in his tank and stand back as if admiring his handiwork.

Rena - I used to like Claiborne for men...anything citrusy. Most women's fragrances give me a headache. Too flowery!

Rebecca Ramsey said...

Very interesting!
Crayfish eat each other? Whoa. And freshwater jellyfish? Weird!

What a perfect place to get engaged! Ah...France!

Saucy said...

Not one, but two Nobel Prize winners? You must live in a University town!

Linda Crispell said...

I was quite envious of Julie on the Mod Squad, she was an older version of Laurie from the Partridge Family and she wore lots of fringe.

adrienne said...

Becky - Hmm...crayfish, jellyfish, and a proposal in Paris. One of these things doesn't go with the others.

Saucy - You're right, but I met only one of them here :-)

Linda - Ooh, Julie was very cool, too!

Kim Kasch said...

Oh, you probably wouldn't like my perfume then - Flower Bomb!

I've been to Paris 2Xs. I love the catacombs best of all.

Kim Kasch said...

Oh forgot to say, "Thanks for playing" you're a good sport.

Bish Denham said...

I love Old Spice! My grandmother wore it most all of the time.

adrienne said...

Kim - Believe it or not I haven't seen them. That will be on the list for next time...

Bish - That's so cool that your grandmother wore it! My Dad's always worn that one.

Kelly said...

Swimming with the Jellyfish...sounds like a good book title!

adrienne said...

Kelly - That reminds me of that scene from Finding Nemo - and it all starts with that little one called Squishy :D
