Random & Me

I was asked to play along.
6 Random things about myself.

06 :: I don't believe in coincidence. I believe God is the divine coordinator of all meetings. I've been blessed so many times with people in my life. Some for the long term, others briefly at the exact needed time. They have been the deliverers of wisdom, love, knowledge and compassion. Those are not the things one chalks up to coincidence. Not me.

05 :: I rarely fall ill. Colds and flus do I not regularly succumb to. Thank goodness. Last night I fell ill. Oh how I am unhappy when my body does not feel well. Sore throat. Hurts to swallow. I can't wait until it's gone.

04 :: This is definitely random. I was a "bed wetter" and it didn't completely go away until I was about 11 years old, if I remember correctly. Now it wasn't every night and it did become less and less the older I became, but it was there. It never stopped me from socialising, i.e. sleepovers, etc. but there were some uncomfortable moments which I won't recount.

03 :: I've been told I am sentimental. Sentimental: marked or governed by feeling, sensibility, or emotional idealism; resulting from feeling rather then reason or thought. I'd have to agree with that.

02 :: I have a small collection of depression glass. I haven't purchased any in a long time. The few pieces I do have, I love and cherish. I also have a neat little collection of wooden boxes. Each one unique and different from the other.

01 :: I did not "get" or understand all the hype about the movie Forrrest Gump. I did not like it nor enjoy it.

*bonus :: Blogger makes me want to throw my hands up in the air. There are some serious programming issues with post drafting and I could scream. It seems to look like one big link when you drag over 03. ~ 01. Go figure! I'm too tired to rewrite the post, maybe later? I tried and it still played up. These things annoy me to no end.

I love meme posts. I enjoy getting to know you better.

I was a bed wetter also until I was 13, it ran in my family my sister and brothers were also.

That blogger problem is weird I haven't come across it before.

Have a great weekend !

Peace, kindred blogger! And I hope you are feeling much better soon!

Secondly... my sister obsessively collects Depression glass. She loves it but that isn't remarkable as she loves most any dishware and has an enormous collection of vintage serving pieces.

Thirdly... I SO don't get the hype over Forrest Gump either. I didn't like it at all. In fact, I will go so far as to say that it downright annoyed me. Titanic either. I just don't see either one of them.

Lovely meme... thanks for playing! :)

I'm sorry that illness has finally found you! I hope you kick its butt very soon. I didn't realize what depression glass was, very cool.

I've had Blogger do that to me before. I think I just did the post over, copying and pasting into Word and then back into Blogger when it wasn't acting up. Very annoying.

Like you, I don't get sick very often...and yet I fell ill *hard* last night. I had stomach cramps like I've never had before; they continue, but are a little better.

Hope we're feeling better soon :)

Nadine said...

What honest random facts. I use to wet the bed on occasion when I was a kid. I know how you feel.

With blogger I usually type my post in Word and then cute and paste. It seems to work fine that way.

Casdok said...

Yes hope you are feeling better soon.

I am a believer in things happen when they are meant to happen :)

That was really good! I don't believe in coincidence either and I'm glad God brought you into my life as a new friend : )

I agree with you wholeheartedly about Forest Gump. Funny how you mentioned that movie. I just saw a preview for it because it was going to be on a movie channel and I was thinking about how I didn't like that movie and what was the big deal?

A beef I have with Blogger right now is when I want to comment on Blogger blogs and I need to pick "Google/Blogger" even though I no longer use my Blogger account because I'm on Wordpress. What is the new "nickname" category? At least it used to say "other" and then I could sign in using my Wordpress account. Now I can't link to my blog.
