15 years of ScrapGirls.  How cool is that?  I know over the years I have made some amazing friends through ScrapGirls.  Right now, I'm sitting with 6 other SG members for a weekend of fun.  This made me think about how well we know the other members. Today we are going to get to know you better.   Share 10 random facts about yourself.  For example: What's your favorite food, color?  Do you love coffee?  Are you an animal lover?  Tell us 10 things about you!

Yes! I’ll make a list. I also love the Australian shows like Offspring. It’s on Hulu and Netflix. Whitechaple is also a good one. Let me go see my list.

1.  My favourite colour.... RED  and it has been ever since I was a little girl

2.  I enjoy traveling and my first taste was when I was 17. I did a camping bus trip for 3 weeks which took me into 6 states of Australia. This was all done on my own when I stepped on the bus I knew no one else.

3.  I would love to be able to paint - took water colour lessons once but did not like the flatness of that medium.

4.  Back in 1992 when buying rubber stamps for wedding stationery I got hooked on the craft of rubber stamping and still do a little plus I enjoy doing hybrid cards - no messy colouring in when I use digital embellishments.

5. When I married my Ken, he had a dog but once Tina died we did not replace her. She was a great little dog - still think of her at times. I would dearly love another dog.

6. I am also a bird lover and enjoy photographing the birds that visit our backyard.

7. I enjoy watching movies... romance and mystery... especially some of the older movies like ones starring Audrey Heburn, Cary Grant etc.

8. Each week I attend an exercise class which I enjoy but I am not very good at carrying through and doing exercises at home. I need to lose some weight.

9. This one should not be so far down the list ..... I am a Christian  - invited Jesus Christ into my life as my Lord and Saviour  in 1981.

10. I do about 30 hours volunteer work each fortnight with my favourite work being in Aged Care.  I have recently completed 7 different studies in Dementia. Most were very short studies.

Jealous here, Conda!  SOMEDAY I will make a meet-up!   And I just returned from Indiana last Saturday!
And, Conda - I want to see the PINK hair please - how cool!   I almost had purple last summer but my hair was so short I thought it would grow out too fast!

OK - here goes, boring me...

 1.  My favorite color is PURPLE and has been since I was a little girl.  I miss “The Purple Place!”
 2.  I love all things Pumpkin too (Conda)!
 3.  I have a tattoo.  (often surprises people!)
 4.  I love heat and hate cold.   Currently all bundled up as I’m freezing!   :winter_brr:
 5.  I am left-handed and very strongly so!  (Conda, again!)
 6.  The beach is my favorite place to be.   
 7.   I don’t have a “real” job due to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, but I keep pretty busy anyway.   I’ve learned to manage my energy to survive, though.
 8.   I was a Pre-School and Kindergarten teacher and I LOVE little kids and how they operate.
 9.   I’m very sentimental and have a really hard time getting rid of objects that hold a lot of memory.   I don’t mind giving things away if someone can use or appreciate     them, but it’s very hard to me to “throw” out.
10.  I “hate hair” is my line.  I mean I hate playing/styling/blowdrying - ANYTHING with hair!  I always say if I had the right kind of face, I’d get a buzz! 

Whew, that was hard and I’m sure I’ll be thinking of things I missed all night!

2 - during the height of the AIDS epidemic I was an AIDS buddy

4 - I will be celebrating 40 years of life after my tragic car accident on November 21, 1979. I had seen the light and was sent back by my Nana,           who affectionately told me it wasn't my time You Son of a B***h!
5 - I was recognized by the Department of the Navy and the Department of Defense with the Outstanding Employee with Disabilities Award
6 - I love old movies and in particular, musicals with Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, Gene Kelly, Donald O'Connor, etc.

I laughed at several of these posts!  Great to read about everyone.  What random things should I share?  Hmmmm.

1.  I love cool/cold, crisp weather, as well as rainy cool days.  I really dislike hot weather and bright sun, and I'm not sure why.

2.  I recently retired from the U.S. Air Force after 20 years (and two months, but who's counting), and I'm now working in a part-time job that I enjoy - but it's not as part-time as I thought it would be!

3.  I am a dentist, and I specialized in Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology - so that's what I do, look through a microscope and diagnose biopsies and resections from the oral cavity, salivary glands, sinonasal area, etc.  I really enjoy my job!

4.  I have an incredibly strong sense of integrity and fairness.  To the point that I can't be around dishonest or insincere people - and I can pick up on manipulation very quickly.  I refuse to tolerate it.  I just walk away.

5.  I was a music major in college (along with biology); I have a Bachelor of Music in Percussion Performance.  I used to play drum set, 4-mallet marimba, timpani... I don't really play percussion anymore, but I do still play piano occasionally.  This was one thing I wanted to do once I had more time in my part-time job - practice music everyday - but it hasn't happened yet!

6.  I have officially run 3 full marathons (26.2 miles), and several more half marathons.  At the same time, I've never considered myself a "real" runner.  The Air Force forced me to stay in decent shape, but now I need to get with it and start exercising again.  I'd like to start running again, and exercising almost everyday.  It's SO HARD to start, though!  

7.  I lived in northern Japan for 3 years while in the Air Force.  I can't even express what an incredible experience that was for me!

8.  I usually don't wear any makeup, and I wear very little jewelry; a lot of days I forget to even put my earrings in, although I like wearing them.  I just don't have the patience for makeup, it takes too much time to apply!

9.  I have a benign essential tremor, or familial tremor, that I've dealt with since I was about 11.  And yes, I was a general dentist for 4 years before I became a pathologist!  It really didn't affect my dentistry, but I took a beta blocker everyday so that my patients wouldn't notice my tremor.  It's a "fine" tremor, an intention tremor.  I used to get really annoyed by people asking "Are you OK?  You're shaking!  Are you nervous?"  I'm OK with it now that I'm older, it doesn't bother me.

10.  I'm primarily a cat person, but I love animals/pets in general.  I have two daughters, they are 10 and 12; one wanted a puppy, one wanted a kitten, so when we moved 4 months ago we got pets for the first time in my kids' lives (DH isn't much of a pet person). Of course I love the kitty, but I've been surprised at how much I enjoy our new puppy, too!  Although the potty training, oy.  As for DH... he also seems to be enjoying the animals.  Surprise, surprise!  😍

I agree with everyone that this is a fun way to get to know everyone!

1) My kids say I failed them in that I can't teach them how to do make up since I never wear it.  My sister did me up for our wedding and I can count on two hands the number of times I've had make up on since then. That was 25 years ago! Too much time, trouble and money.

2) I'm working my dream job at the Zoo. I love working with the birds and learning new things everyday.

3) It sounds like alot of us here love birds.  Me too. My favorite right now is African Penguins.

4) I really like getting up super early. Most days I'm up at 3:45, some days earlier.

5) Lately I've taken an interest in Bible Journaling. I like the mixed media sort of activity and I find that studying scripture in that manner makes it really stick.

6) I love coffee.  Morning noon or night. You can mess with my dog and my kids, but don't mess with my coffee.

7) I moved to California from Michigan when I was 18 and I was homesick until I was 50. Now that my adult children live with me it's a blessing that I have the time with them that I didn't have with my mom because of the self imposed distance between us.

😎 I love our dogs. We have a Yellow lab, best dog ever, and Erinn and Pauls two big dogs are with us too.  Best Grand dogs ever. I don't know why the smiley face is at the beginning of this sentence. It's supposed to be an 8! And it won't fix.

9) Chocolate cake is my favorite dessert.  We discovered a local bakery that takes their cutoffs and makes these Grande size cake cups.  They are huge and yummy and only $3.00 each.  The beat Nothing Bundt Cakes by a long shot. It is now my weekly end of the week treat. Maybe middle of the week too.

10) My first trip out of the country ever was two years ago to Cape Town to work with the African Penguins. It was an amazing opportunity. On that trip I met up with Scrap Girl Belle. I never thought I'd have the opportunity to meet her and it was a really fun evening and felt like we'd known each other in real life forever.
