7 Random Facts!

My friend e-mailed me and I've been tagged with this fun little task. I'm to share 7 random facts about myself. So here goes....

1- I was born in the Netherlands. Lived there for 2 years but I don't remember any of it. I supposedly had dual citizenship until I was 18 years old...I'm not sure if thats true or not.

2- I pierced my tongue on one of many trips to Las Vegas in college. I figured it wasn't permanent like a tattoo and it could easily be concealed after all it was in my mouth. That didn't last long maybe a year. I don't regret it, just something I wouldn't recommend anyone hurt really bad! Really Bad!

3- I was bit by a German Shepherd named Mr. Lovable...he tore off my top lip. I was just trying to give him a kiss. Seriously, it was embarrassing I had to start the 1st grade with a major boo boo on my face.

4- I have been working supporting myself since I was 11 years old. I had a paper route for 2 years. Then I babysat until I was old enough to get a real job. My parents had 6 kids to clothe and feed. I'm sure they were happy not to have to worry about my expenses. They provided me with a roof over my head, food to eat, and a lot of love. I didn't mind being independent with my own check book in 6th grade.

5- I was voted "best smile" for my senior year High School Superlatives. Surprising since the incident with Mr. Lovable.

6- I had my driver's license suspended for about 8 months and didn't even know it. I was late paying a ticket and it looks like they suspended it...I only found out when Josh and I were getting a life insurance policy...our Insurance Agent called me and said "Why is your driver's license suspended"? Three trips later to the DMV and I've got it back.

7- I seem to have the best luck meeting and seeing celebrities...seriously.
I work at a hotel so that helps. My favorite of all times was Justin Timberlake!!!!I stood next to him at Starbucks and my knees shook while he waited for his Vanilla late. He let me cut in front of him to buy my bottled water. We had a connection....just kidding!
Also on the list: Dave Chapelle, Bret Michael's, The Allman Brothers, Howard Dean, and Barack Obama.

So that's it...I'm sure there are many more but I'm kinda tired of trying to think of them. Now I will tag many of my blog friends and get them to play along!
