Get to Know Me

Get to Know Me

via Snail Mail Love

Hey There!

I’m so excited to be starting a fun little challenge this month. I love a challenge that falls in line with any of my plans/goals for what I want to be doing. You can find more details on Fab’s blog, Snail Mail Love, here and read her first entry here as well as others at the end of her post.

You can tell from the title of this post today’s topic is getting to know the blogger. I like this prompt because it allows me the freedom to share more about myself than I would normally feel is suitable for this platform. We all know that most people DO NOT like talking about themselves, myself included, so to make this fun I will be sharing what I hope will be fun, interesting, maybe embarrassing, and who knows what else will come up. Let’s get started shall we…

{I have 12 siblings}
Yep, it’s true and no we don’t all have the same mom. Technically, my dad has eleven children! My mom has had six of those; two without my dad! For those of you who like numbers here are a few for you… ’61, ’62, ’63, ’64, ’65, ’67, ’70, ’73, ’75, ’76, ’78, and two after that I don’t know yet. All I can say to this is Rabbits!

{My Love/Hate Relationship}
I love to take pictures but hate HATE being in them. I’m the epitome of ‘the camera adds ten pounds’, only it’s more like 100 lbs! You know, like marshmallow face or something! Did I say HATE yet?!?

{Walt Disney World}
I’m not a mega fan but I did work there! It was my first job and the only one I don’t like to admit to. Here’s why; when you tell people that you were a character at WDW, many many questions ensue and you pretty much end up talking about yourself. Who wants to prompt that kind of attention!?!

{Most Embarrassing}
I’m excited to share this one because I own it, and it includes yummy donuts! When I worked in retail, I was to open the store one fine Sunday, but not before stopping for some chocolate mini donuts. My all time favorite since as along as I can remember!! I’m not sure how long into the morning this occurred but at some point a customer made an odd to me random comment about “stopping the donut truck”. Um, what? Eventually, I got it and if you really need me to tell you the moral of the story let me know.

{I CAN’T kill bugs}
Yeah, this sounds strange, certainly gross, and especially shutter inducing. When I say “can’t”, I mean physically impossible. It’s the noise, the squishing, the potential for goo… all of the above! I go into panic mode if it is down right necessary for me to deal with this situation on my own. I’ve even called friends at home to come rescue me! This is serious stuff in my book.

OK, I that’s enough for now before I do myself some emotional harm. It’s not much but I hope it helps you to know me a little more than the formal stuff you usually read about on info pages.

  1. Hi Angie, it's so nice to meet you 🙂

    Wow, 11 siblings.. and I thought that us being 5 was a lot! I really understand your love/hate relationship with photography, I'm exactly the same! I only force myself take a few when I travel, just to have a memento of my time there, but for the most part, HATE it!

    Thank you for joining DMIO, I hope it's going to be fun!
