10 Things You Might Not Know

Hi, Siestas! I think I’ve got a fun one! I saw this idea in one of those complimentary airline magazines and showed it to Michelle (who was sitting right next to me) with great enthusiasm and said, “I’m going to do this with the Siestas!” to which she dryly said, “Great, Ma’am.” (I adore her. To say that she has whiplash after going from Washington D.C. to Living Proof Ministries is the understatement of the year. She really doesn’t want to talk a lot about mascara and would not be caught stone-cold-dead in a pair of Capri pants. And never in her entire life has she had to keep a small bottle of anointing oil in her brief case…just in case her boss calls for it. She has also never before had a boss request a photo-shopped picture of herself on a Spiderman costume. A post for another time.)

I’m sorry. I have a little ADD this morning. Back to my idea. It’s not very original but I think it will be a blast. As we’re getting to know one another here in Siestaville, let’s hit the fast forward button. What are 10 things – right off the top of your head – that we would only know about you if we knew you really well? 10 random things ranging anywhere on your personal map that make you a tad distinctive? Or just plain weird? Think quickly. Don’t go for deep. Go for quirky. Don’t try to put them in any kind of order and don’t make them long. Just start typing. I’ll go first to give you the idea.

1. I have an addiction to Ziploc bags.
2. I hate wet socks worse than almost anything.
3. I was the only baby out of 5 born to my mother with no anesthesia. She never forgot it.
4. I wore braces for 12 years. I still often sleep in a retainer.
5. I am a read-aholic. I read over others’ shoulders. I walk the aisle on airplanes to see what others are reading. I read what’s laying on people’s desks during meetings while they think I’m listening.
6. I love Black music.
7. I need slices of cakes and pies to be cut neatly with a sharp knife and not gouged out with a fork. (Nearly just got a shiver at the thought.)
8. My children call me “Doodle.” I no longer remember why. Sometimes just “The Doods.”
9. I am a very slow driver.
10. I’m a go-girl. I love the rush of taking off in an airplane. I smile almost every time.

OK, Siestas! What about you? What are 10 quirky things we might not know?

    1. I eat my 5 servings of mostly organic fruits and veggies each day.

    2. To keep all things equal I usually eat the same number of servings of non-organic jelly bellies.

    3. Cinnamon jelly bellies are my favorite.

    4. I met my husband in the middle of the sea of Japan. (my motto is if your ship doesn't come in hop on a plane and fly out to it baby!)

    5. He proposed in Sydney, Austraila.

    6. We birthed our first son in the Netherlands

    7. We have 4 boys now and this once highly organized person has never been more scattered. (and my mother is highly amused by it…ugh!)

    8. I'm easily entertained – a perfect evening would include dinner at home with my family, laughing and sharing each other's day, then enjoying a card game, a book or a movie together.

    9. Hours feel like minutes to me when I am playing on Wordsearch.

    10. The most treasured part of my day is my time with the Lord – first thing in the morning and the ultimate is when I have at least an hour of child-free (hence question-free) time w/HIM – more craved than that first sip of aromatic coffee (altho they normally go together w/me :))

    8. I plan for about a month before I get my hair cut – sometimes more. This includes extensive photo research on exactly how I want it. I usually bring a minimum of 4 pictures to show my stylist. I prefer screen captures from TV shows etc over still photos since then I can get the hair from all directions.
    9. I would generally delete that last comment in fear of it sounding far too vain, but this is supposed to be random. Can you tell I'm in the middle of this planning process?

    1. Named after my redheaded grandma, Ada when I was born a carrot-top and always said I'd dye it a "normal" color once I moved out on my one but have yet to color or highlight it.

    2. Love Jesus, bible study, reading, cross-country skiing, dancing, and walks with my hubby.

    3.Love cooking healthy, delicious foods and pretty dishes!

    4. When I was about 8 yrs old, I wanted to wear "girdles' like grown up women so cut all the crotches out of my underpants – got me in big trouble!

    5. Met my husband in Drivers-ed class 38 years ago and thought he had the greatest smile I'd ever seen – I still do!

    6. In the early days of marriage, I learned from Bill Gothard that a good name is worth more than gold or silver so our children are Nathan, Luke, Gabriel and Elizabeth. They can drive me crazy but are the treasures of my life.

    7. I'm a pack rat – my heart wants to give stuff away but I always procrastinate and the clutter is a big frustration.

    8. I'm an indecisive middle child – as is my darling hubby, and we both avoid conflict!

    9. My 16 year old daughter and I wax each others eyebrows and faces – I'm surprised she trusts me with her face!

    10.I love to travel but struggle with excruciating ear pain when descending in an airplane – thank God for "ear-planes" and my mission trip prayer partner who called the night before we flew to Belize to suggest them to me!

    Wish I wear a speed reader so I could read all these fascinating posts! I amazed at how you Moore women are able to get through all these!!
