Five Randoms

My blogging friend, Tracy, tagged me recently...so here we go:

Share five random/weird things about myself.
1. I've always wanted to learn how to operate heavy construction equipment. You know, excavators, backhoes, front loaders, dump trucks, anything like that.

2. I like mowing our five acres with the big ass lawn mower.

3. I like to eat my bagels toasted and smothered with jalepeno peppers and melted cheese.

4. I have a secret fantasy of living in a log cabin in the mountains and wilderness, running water and electricity are optional, and completely living off the land with homegrown food and hunting wild game.

5. I have a phobia of cockroaches...and pretty much ANYTHING that even remotely resembles one. And those walking stick bugs are pretty darn wicked, too. I shuddered just writing the previous two sentences.

Share five places that I want to see or see again.

1. The mountains in the northernmost region of the Idaho panhandle. The memories always make me homesick.

2. Yachats, Oregon. These memories always make me homesick, too. And remind me of my honeymoon.

3. Alaska. Never been there, but someday I will, and I may never come back.

4. British Columbia, Canada. I've been there, but I've never been able to stay long enough.

5. Siberia. So I could jog along those stretches where Rocky trained and where the snow drifts were six feet tall. I think I'll wear a stocking cap like that too when I get there.

Tag five random people and link to them and let them know they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Ya know, my experience so far is that whenever I tag people, they get annoyed or just ignore me. So if you're reading this and you want to volunteer tag yourself, be my guest. I'd love to read what you have to say. Otherwise, I'll leave you alone.

Ok I just tried to leave a comment and it didn't work so take 2. Love the meme and Happy Birthday to you too. Wow I can't believe not only are out kids close in age but so are we. Hmmm it stinks we don't live closer.

Good good list.
I agree about the bugs but I thought it was funny that you wrote the wilderness one and then the bug one. I'm just worried that one might come with the other. LOL

Jesse,
Well...while our birthdays are close together, I think it would be a misnomer to say that we are "close" in age. If I'm remembering correctly, you are a fair bit younger than I am. But yes, it would be fun if we lived closer. I could use some "Mommy friends" and it would be fun to have some play dates with our kids!

Tracy,
I guess it does sound a little silly about the love of the outdoors and hatred for bugs. Around here (in the Midwest) the two really do go hand in hand. But in the northernmost areas of the Idaho wilderness, I don't even remember seeing any bugs. I'm sure they were there, but they weren't big enough to carry me off and eat me like they are here. And there definitely weren't so freakish many of them either!
