Self portrait Tuesday- Introduce yourself

I all ready confessed to my love of nacho cheese food, so what else can I tell you?

I hate driving it terrifies me! I didn’t start driving until I was 30 and moved to a city with awful public transport. Out of fear, I get road rage when I see others driving irresponsibly. I am not proud of this fact but I must own it. My son has outed me as a road rage sufferer on more than one occasion. Once while we were in the car with my in-laws a truck cut us off. His little three-year-old voice chimed out from his car seat, “You jack-ass! That’s what you say when someone does that right mom.” Gulp.

I am a huge daydreamer. Sometimes I am so immersed in my thoughts that I completely forget what I am doing and where I am going.

I love musicals. I know they can be cheesy but I just love ‘em. I want to jump out of my seat and run on stage, shove the lead out of the way and sing and dance. It just looks like so much fun!

I am an aromatherapy nut. It really has a strong effect on me!!! My favorite scent is a mix of lavender, orange, and geranium.

I wanted to be an actress when I was young. I was too afraid to tell my parents and go for it so it has been an unrealized dream. I am thinking of taking drama classes and trying to do regional theatre. I think stage performing would just be so amazing!

My dad died a year ago last month and I still think about him every day. I often forget he is gone and have to remind myself which makes me sad all over again.

I obsess over the size of my thighs. It is a daily struggle.

All of the way through that post I said, 'me, too!' I am terrified of driving (i did a whole post on it!) I love musicals and I desperately wanted to be an actress as a kid. I used to be in musicals in school but stopped when I got to university. Hmmm... looks like I need to come over there or you need to come to London - we'll go out for nachos and do a play (taking the train, of course!!)

P.S. Yes, please! (the training sheet) I actually just emailed you something yesterday but in case you didn't figure out it was me, my address is meg at randomlychallenged dot com.

P.P.S. I loved that picture - you are beautiful!!

you look fierce in this photo woman..roowhrr! I also had a case of the "me-too's" with this list. I don't drive, yum aromatherapy, and my thighs, oh the animals, natural phenomena and food items I have used to describe them.

oh honey, look at that GORGEOUS face. i miss it. i want to put it in my hands and kiss you all over your face!!!!

isn't she a hottie everyone? i know, i know...and she always has been. even in 5th grade, darn her.

all the older boys wanted her in Highschool. am i in trouble for saying so???

okay missy. lets look at tickets so i can kiss your face and your tattoo.

i still cannot believe you're driving. I totally cracked up out loud about Dace saying "Jack Ass" and his comment afterwards. i could TOTALLY see your face turning ruby red.

i love you.

i loved what you said about
the road rage...teeheehee...

and i feel the same way about
wishing i was an actor
although i couldn't carry a note
to save my soul...i don't honestly
even know what "carry a note" means.

and i'm sorry that you lost your dad.
that must be hard.

The first one made me laugh out loud.

Every day I think I better stop my potty mouth before the first string of words from my now 14 month old will be profanities.

Letha, you are gorgeous! and i really do think you should do that drama course - what an amazing adventure that would be.... and i was nodding with the driving comments - i'm 33 and i still haven't passed my test - how tragic is that?! every time i learn i just chicken out - perhaps it's just not meant to be ? :-)

this picture is beautiful. i love the mirror images...
i can so relate to the desire to push the lead out of the way and take over during a musical! we will have to bond about this next week!
and the need to remind yourself that he is gone. yes. that is such a hard part my dear...so very hard.
