Thursday 13

I'm following the lead of my friend at Cafe at the End of the Universe with my post this week. I give you... Getting to Know Me, brought to you by the letter B.

1. Baptized - I was baptized a long time ago at the First United Methodist Church of Humble. My twins were also baptized there when they were three months old.

2. Bells - I used to have quite an extensive collection of bells. Pretty bells, a sterling bell that belonged to my grandmother, a bell my dad bought me, angel bells, a replica of the Liberty Bell, and bell made of cranberry glass, and so on. I don't know why I quit collecting them or why I only kept a few of them.

3. Betrayal - I've had a few of these in my life. I don't want to talk about them, but I believe they shape who we are and how we perceive the world around us.

4. Beverage - My favorite beverage is Coca-Cola Classic.
5. Blood - I don't give blood. There was a period in my life when I was having to give blood so frequently that my veins collapsed. In fact, I collapsed, just passed out, when I was having my blood drawn once not too long ago. It just freaks me out now.

6. Bologna - I ate a lot of bologna when I was a kid... until I got sick after eating a bologna and mayo sandwich and drinking a cream soda. I wouldn't eat bologna for a long time after that, but I do now. I'm the only person in my family that eats it.

7. Bones - I've had two broken bones in my life. When I was about 18 months old, my dad tucked me into bed too tightly (not a crib, but a big double bed). In the process of kicking off the covers, I fell out of bead and broke my collar bone on the metal bed frame. I also broke my wrist doing a back handspring when I was in 8th grade.

8. Books - I love books! I read them, I review them, and I belong to several book clubs (on IRL and a couple online). I just finished I, Alex Cross by my favorite author, James Patterson. Now I am reading Shanghai Girls by Lisa See and Unwind by Neal Shusterman.
9. Brains - I consider myself a "smart girl." I don't know it all, though I sometimes pretend I do, but I know more than enough. I respect myself for my brains.

10. Breaking Free - The is the current Beth Moore Bible study I am attending and loving.

11. Brown - The color of my eyes (which I always wished were blue).

12. Bruise - Poke me on the arm, and I'll get a bruise. I've always bruised easily, but I'm not sure why.

13. Bubble Bath - I love a long soak in a hot, bubbly bath.

This meme is a wonderful way to get to know people. I have been very lucky in life and never broken a bone, got many stitches but no broken bones.

I love books too.

Great list of B's, I've always been grateful that my only broken bones have been in my feet, not casts and they heal pretty quickly. ~ Calico Contemplations

I cracked my collarbone when I was 16. I still remember how much that hurt. Though not as bad as cracked ribs.

Interesting how those tidbits form a picture of you. Good list.

Lots of good B information. I feel like I know you better. Happy TT!

I've had no broken bones but plenty of other injuries. And I, too, love books.

What did you think of I, Alex Cross? It is on my list of books to read.
