5. Send an e-mail letting those bloggers know they have been tagged

Unfortunately, I don't really know 7 other bloggers to tag (who haven't already been tagged), but I'll answer the questions anyway. : )

So here are 7 random things about me:

1) I still have the pink baby blanket that my dad bought for me the day I was born 34 years ago. I sleep with it every night (can't fall asleep without it), take it on vacation with me, and my kids fight over it.

2) I have a phobia of bridges - I hate riding in a car over them, although I'm not particularly afraid of heights in general. I am also deathly afraid of bugs, especially centipedes, millipedes, and caterpillars.

3) I don't know how to drive, and I didn't learn how to ride a bike until I was 17 and my younger sister taught me.

4) My husband and I had our first kiss in the walk-in cooler of the Burger King restaurant where we worked (and met). I think there must have been an aphrodisiac in the food, because so many of the employees (including my brother and sister who also worked there with me) ended up dating each other.

5) I'm missing a foot and a half of my colon. When I was 27, my colon became infected and ruptured, and I spent a week in an ICU, had part of my colon removed, and had a colostomy for 3 months. My husband brought my pink blanket to the hospital for me.

6) I believe in aliens and ghosts.

7) I wish time travel were possible, and that I had a time machine.

I'll have a crochet-related post soon. I have a couple of projects to show as soon as I can take pictures of them. My camera batteries are dead, and I can't find the charger.
