Car fixin' and blog awards

My blog friend Tiffany over at the Twisted Ruffle gave me a blog award! I have met this gal in real life and she is fantastic! She is a home schooling whiz and she has the best head of hair I've ever seen.

As part of this I'm supposed to list 7 random things about myself. Fun, for me. Maybe not you.

1. I count on my fingers. I count syllables in words as I'm speaking them, or as someone else is speaking them. I don't even know I'm doing it half the time. Jeff will notice my fingers tapping on his leg as I count the syllables that people are saying in movies. And I really like it when the sentence ends on my pinky finger. It's totally weird I know. But I've been doing it since I was 14. Can you say OCD?

2. I can scream like a seagull. No really. I actually sound like a seagull. I will prove it to you as long as we are outdoors so that I don't blow your eardrums.

3. My deepest darkest fear is driving off the road into water at night. It's the stuff scary movies are made of.

4. When I was twelve I drove my sister and two friends around in my brothers car while he was at work. I was a little over confident and stupid back in the day. And it was a small town. I figured nobody would see me. And it was true. My mistake however, was driving the car to my brother at work so that he wouldn't have to walk home. And being the honest guy he is, he told my parents. It was pretty embarrassing. But hey, I was still a good driver.

5. I love to sing. I sang in two audition choirs when we lived in Rhode Island. One was a starter chorale group, but the second was pretty well known, we performed with Opera Singers and Symphony Orchestras and traveled a little. I sang second soprano. I miss it.

6. When I was 16 I got rear ended and had major whiplash. Ever since I've had tension headaches and chronic tightness in my shoulders.

7.My new favorite decadence is a Krispy Kreme burger. You take two donuts and you put a hamburger patty, fried egg and bacon between them. It's about 1000 calories of pure evil and it's soooo good. Kate and I share half of one. And now I want that for my birthday dinner. Thank you very much Paula Deen.

So there you have it, my random list. And now you get some random cuter than cute pictures of Henry helping his daddy with the car.

Have a great day!


  1. oh, thanks for saying i have good hair!! so sweet of you....i'm blushing!

    i'd do almost anything to be able to sing. one of my friends sings at chuch and i thought her kids were so lucky to have a mom that can sing. then, in the car they don't feel like they're listening to the rejected folks off of american idol. becasuse who would want to listen to that???

    sometimes i count up all the numbers in house number signs. i don't think anyone else notices, so it's still a secret! so, shhh!

  2. your biggest fear + my biggest fear=the same thing. Freaks me out!

  3. ok weird....i do the EXACT same thing as #1...the love of ending on the pinky and everything. glad i'm not the only one!

  4. #7 OMGosh does that ever sound so so so so very (I can't even find the words)!! It's like a bacon, egg and cheese biscuit/bagel only SO VERY MUCH BETTER!!!!

    Apparently I'm the only food lover who reads ;)
