6 Things You Don't Want to Know ABOUT ME

I have been tagged by the amazing Ngan of nNVe Designs (who I will never forgive). These are the rules:

link to the person who tagged you > post the rules on your blog > write six random things about yourself > tag six people at the end of your post and link to them > let each person know they've been tagged

1. I have lived in the same state my entire life, the much maligned state of New Jersey, where I somehow managed to go to 7 schools in 7 years.

2. 5th grade was my last great year of school- I won most popular, best looking, most athletic, starred in the school play, won the spelling bee, got straight A’s . The next year I lost all my charm and stayed that way until… well, I stayed that way….

3. My husband and I met on a blind date. I only agreed to go out with him because my sister promised me he was moving to Florida the next week. He had only been told I was very skinny, had just cut my hair super-short and had a scar on my shoulder- he showed up anyway. He had no money to go anywhere, asked me why I wore my hair so short and looked at me like a starving man looks at a steak dinner…. proof that love does not have to happen at first sight, although he still swears it did for him….

4. I was a bank manager for 10 years. Actually I was a bank teller for 1 year, a head teller for 1 year, an assistant manager for 1 year and a bank manager for 7 years. I was really good at it. Until a gun at my head during a robbery, a knife pulled on me during a forgery attempt and a crazy stalker customer pushed me out the door and back into myself ……

5. I am diet pepsi obsessed. I only buy the caffeine free kind from the grocery store, because it makes me feel better about myself- but sneak off to fast food drive thrus almost daily for a caffeinated one- I think the ones you drink in your car don’t count, right?

6. I do not really like cats - please do not hate me for this

7. I go to a psychic once a year around my birthday even though she is wrong about almost everything

8. Cat is short for Catherine which is my middle name. My real first name is top secret, but you probably have an old, gray-haired, maiden aunt with this name who used to pinch your checks and give you sticky quarters…

Oops overdid this- probably should delete the cat thing....
now to pass this on to 6 people - please forgive me guys!

I am tagging ButtonEnvy, Something Whimsical, Decorate the Diva, AntiGenre, ShutterKate and Fisheye

Very brave of you to admit you don't like cats! LOL. I'm a dog person too, don't worry.
Really fun to learn these random facts about your life. Your adventure as a bank teller probably drove you to create the wonderful creative business you have now, right? Love the blind date story- the way he looked at you like a steak makes me laugh. I think I know what you mean. Thanks for sharing.

Cat, how dare you say I'm more interesting than you.. I think this post proves you wrong. :) I'm glad you're alright after the traumatic bank experience! That is so scary to even think about, let alone experience. It's so cool how you and your husband met. And nope, nothing you get in the fast food joints counts against you.. right? :D
