I can stick my tongue up my nose.

I'll refrain from doing so right now. Ragweed season makes it a rather unpleasant experience.

I have a collection of 18 white wedding gowns.
One I wore to my senior prom (semi-formal)
One I wore to my wedding.
The others I keep to play dress up with when the world has me down.
Is it sad that I am in my 30's and I play dress up to feel better sometimes?

*They* say that if you can touch your tongue to your nose and/or chin you can sing opera- is that so?

(I'm not sure what talents come w/ the up the nose bit! )

hmmm. I've never tried opera, but I was in choir for 5 years.

I've heard.........other things about people who can touch their tongue to their noses.

This is kinda cool!

Here's what I can think of.

I have worked a number of summers as a Wilderness/Backcountry ranger, backpacking for 10 days every 2 weeks in a national park.
Along the same vein, I spent a few seasons on trail crew!

I have a big box of costumes, full of wigs (Keep in mind, this is my first kid that cookin'!) I LOVE costume parties, and will come up with any excuse for a wig or a powder blue leisure suit.

How's that? I'll edit if I can think of other things... (I just learned how to do that!) I know I think I'm unusual...

Me too-trail crew, that is...in YNP. And I instructed Outward Bound for 3 years as a climbing instructor in MT.

And yes Treemom I meant you. Where do you live? We lived near Mt Fuji on the Chuo-sen.

haha. Well I guess maybe it's true. I can sing opera plus as any other style at least reasonable well. I took voice lessons for 12 years!

Well, my husband can't do it and he *is* taking bel canto lessons. He has a gorgeous voice.

His teacher tells me she could teach me because I have high cheekbones. I've never been known for my voice . . . That said, bel canto is a technique, a skill. Talent is important, but the skill is the really important part.

I frequently act out my dreams, waking my husband insisting that there are strange people or monsters hiding in our closet or rodents climbing our curtains or insects on the bed. Once I got mad at him for breaking the legs off of the "blanket spiders", they were very delicate and were spinning our warm and cozy blankets. Another time he woke me up with "intentions" and I told him we couldn't because the twins were watching. When he asked what twins, I said "uh, your DAUGHTERS" We didn't have any children together then, and his child is a boy. Yup, I am really weird in my sleep.

I have weird dreams sometimes too. I got one helluva bruise one time trying to run away from spiders in a dream. I got out of bed run down the hall and into the living room wall, all asleep, screaming hysterically.

Japan's my one disappointment with this pregnancy... my husband and I were planning to visit friends in Himeji this March and now won't be able to travel. I'm trying to talk J into going during January or February without me because after the baby, it'll be harder for either of us to travel internationally for awhile.
