Here are Deborah's weird facts:

3. she prefers Jeeps to Cadillacs: great choice, Deb!

6. cutoffs, and t-shirt are her favorite clothes: yeah, comfortable.
7. the mountains are her favorite place on earth: this I knew, Deb!

Okay...well, here are seven (and only seven; I could write a book!) strange and weird facts about ME:
1. I'm an author and I can't spell
2. I speak five languages (none of them very well: English, French, Romanian, German, Swedish)
3. I failed First Year University Chemistry
4. I don't watch TV
5. My high school career assessment concluded that I was best suited to be a sargent in the army (writer was way down the list)
6. I opted out of Grade 11 biology to take typing (then had to challenge the exam when I decided to pursue a science degree at university)
7. I was chased off the Serengeti Plain by a horde of biting soldier ants.

Now for the fun part: to tag 7 others who we want to find out more about... I choose as my vict-er-fortunate candidates:
Joanne at The LaidBack Buddhist
Jennifer Rahn
Heather Dugan
Greg's Brain

Now, don't be shy. If you can't think of anything, you can make it up (I did!)...

Nina: I'm impressed by the breadth of languages that you speak! I struggle with two - often!

Footsteps said...

This will be fun! I'm glad it's a weird/random option because after this many years, unless my kids' are actively rolling their eyes at me, it all seems pretty normal.

sfgirl said...

Ah, Mark! Thank you! Multumesc! Merci! Vielen Dank...tack so mycket... (my father is Romanian, my mother is German, my aunt lives in Sweden, I grew up in a French neighbourhood and learned English in school!)

Heather, don't I know about the kids rolling eyes at me... LOL! Looking forward to your "strange" facts!

Greg said...

I'm glad you thought of me when the subject is weird. I feel some justice must be paid to this meme, so give me a little time.

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Nina, it's very impressive that you can tackle five languages. The majority seem to struggle with one.

sfgirl said...

Hey, Greg! My pleasure! (from one weird one to another... :)

Jean-Luc, you flatter me by using the word, "tackle"... Along with my poor spelling, I've managed to slaughter not one but FIVE languages! HAR! All or nothing, I say... :D

Footsteps said...

I posted! Nothing as interesting as outrunning stampeding soldier ants, but then we can't ALL be Nina(ha)!

sfgirl said...

Who said I outran them!?!?!?!! There's so much more to that story... :)

Footsteps said...

Even better! DO tell...

sfgirl said...

Well, Heather, I'll have to do it in a's too involved! And ridiculous... suffice to say that I ended up 'sleeping' on the hood of a truck!
