i was tagged on instagram a few weeks ago (twice!) for that whole five-things-about-me business. it instantly stressed me out, so i decided to ignore it. but, you know, as you do. . . . here we are, old school style! in a BLOG. take that, instagram!
FIVE. THINGS. TADUHHHHH.
// 1 //
if ever i can't sleep at night i like to mentally rehearse the figure skating routine i made up for myself when i was eleven years old, back when i was fairly certain i had the life of a gold-medal olympic figure skater ahead of me. i choreographed it the summer after kristi yamaguchi took gold, and it is set to the carpenter's christmas portrait oh holy night. there are so many triple salchows in that routine, and i always nail every single one of them. but nude ice skates though, not white. and lots of sparkles.

i can memorize the lyrics to a song, any song, the entire song, on first listen. this is only a slight exaggeration. this skill has come in handy approximately once in my life.

i'm super double jointed in my fingers, but most especially in my pinkies.

here are four things that i've done that i always forget that i've done and that always make me go "ohh yeah! weird!": i lived in south korea when i was in kindergarten, i skipped the 8th grade when i was in, uh, 7th grade, i convinced my orthodontist to take my braces off for senior prom (he put them back on a week later), and i once worked as a live model in the windows of the limited on saturday afternoons at the mall (how could anyone forget THAT?! ;).

i have very small teeth. they match my very small face. not only are my teeth very small, but also i am missing six of them. two molars, and all four of my wisdom teeth. they just never grew in. this is a lovin family hand-me-down, tiny teeth. aren't you jealous. huck and i like to brush our tiny teeth together at night, it's sort of the best part of our funny little bedtime routine. he always laugh-cries when it's time for me to get to his molars and the backs of his front teeth. sort of a, "this is freaking me out but we're having fun still, right mom?" kind of laugh.
p.s. i gave birth to the world's cutest kid ever. but maybe you knew that already? ;)
i tag sydney, courtney, anabela, becca (yes i did!), ashley, emily, and ALL OF YOU PEOPLE, TOO.
(i do fully expect that everyone will ignore this part. ;)
(but do link up in the comments if you do one, won't you?)
