25 Things About Me

For fun….Little known facts about Tina
-I am the oldest child, but because my brother was the long awaited male child I demonstrate quite a mish-mosh of first and second born traits.
-I dreamt of being a ballerina when I was a little child, probably because I could do the best spins in my patent leather Mary Janes on the linoleum in the side room. Sadly, my mother felt I was much too uncoordinated and denied me lessons.
-I loved riding my bike through the cemetary when I was old enough to just go riding where I wanted (probably junior high).
-I watched Dark Shadows when I was a kid and bought the trading cards with milk money I squirrelled away. I wonder if that’s why I liked riding bike through the cemetary.
-I worked several summers while in college and even after I was married at Cedar Point Hotel Breakers.
-I’m not allergic to poison ivy, but my brother can get it from the air. At least that’s what I’ve been told.
-Today I sneezed eleven times in a row. I think it was from the cayenne pepper I put on my mixed nuts.
-I love to laugh and make people laugh.
-One of my early jobs was at McDonalds.
-I have played God. Actually, I had the role of Zeuss in our college production of JB.
-I was also the Stagemanager in our production of Our Town. I think I got the part because no one else wanted to memorize the lines…
-Though I hate doing housework, I actually cleaned house to make money many years ago. These people had 3 long hair cats and two long hair dogs. And if I had a dollar for every gegaw and chotzke I could pay off my school loan.
-I have three masters degrees and I started work on a D.Min.
-I played tennis in college. I wasn’t very good, but they needed someone to fill the roster.
– My mother only had one job when I was growing up, and that was as a library aid in our small town. I loved going to work with her and reading.
-I can’t do Sudoko. It makes my head hurt. I try occasionally and then get flustered and quit, vowing to never waste time like that again…until the next time.
-I was fourth runner up to Miss Teenage Columbus in 1974. I was presented an award for third place at BRMCWC for Articles for Print. I want to win.
-I have won the Super Bowl Championship in our Fantasy Football League–a couple times!
-My house has four mature maple trees along the one side and across the front. I love the feel of being surrounded by trees.
-I don’t like raking or blowing all the leaves, but I do enjoy making a pile for my grandson to jump in.
-I can’t talk without using my hands. Someone held my hands once and I started moving my shoulders. When I am trying not to say something (like in a class)I will sit on my hands.
-I love flavored coffee, escpecially hazelnut, but it has to be decaf.
-I love to burn scented candles. My favorite is Angel Whispers by Glad.
-I do not take tests well. I failed my oral exam for my second masters (M.Div) so badly the head of my committee suggested that we consider that the exam never happened and they would give me a new committee the following fall. I passed then. I also failed my counselor exam the first time I tood it. The room was all darkened and there was a screen thing I had to use, and I had to be still and quiet. Nightmare for a techno-phob with ADD. Since I knew what to expect I passed it the second time.
-Someone contacted me this week about writing devotions for a church related publication. I really like that people are thinking of me as a writer.
