5 Secrets About Me

Well I've been tagged to do another meme, so you are going to learn just a little more about me today. Bobbi from Kelly-Green Rogue has tagged me with the 5 Secrets Meme. The idea is to post 5 things about yourself that have never been reveled on your blog. I'm not sure that these things are really secrets, but I don't think that I've mentioned them before. So, in no particular order:
  • I have degrees in Economics and East Asian Studies. I don't have a job that utilizes either of these though. I originally wanted to get a degree in philosophy and she was afraid I wouldn't use that!
  • My title at work is Web Publications Coordinator. I'm not sure what that really means though.
  • I know how to play violin. I decide I wanted to learn to play the violin after our grade school music teacher got Issac Stern to come to our school and play a concert in the school gym. It was very impressive.
  • I don't like getting shots at the doctor's office. In fact, I often faint when I do get one. I can't even watch it on TV or in a movie.
  • One winter while I was in high school, I dressed up in a big Frosty the Snowman costume and was on the Cowboy Bob show. The whole thing was filmed at the Indianapolis Zoo and I got to dance with Cowboy Bob on TV. The Cowboy Bob show was a local morning cartoon show. He had a dog named Tumbleweed.
This is only the second time I've been tagged for one of these posts. In the spirit of turn about is fair play, I'm only going to name someone that has tagged me before. So Angelarae, consider yourself tagged.

My daughter (21) has the same problem with shots, yet she has three tatoos - go figure! But, she really does have panic attacks when she has to get shots. As a matter of fact, 2 years ago when she was getting ready to go to Costa Rica and needed a couple shots, we were in the doctor's office for 1 1/2 hours while she panicked and panicked until she finally was able to do it. What a saint that nurse was! Sent her flowers right after that.
