10 things you didn’t know about me

  1. I studied Thai kick boxing, Jiu-Jitsu, karate, Jeet Kune Do and have a white belt in all four, watch out!
  2. I played soccer at the community level for 15 years, in Canada and England.
  3. I studied lyrical jazz for 15 years and loved it, till I broke my ankle (see #2.)
  4. My first job was delivering Sears catalogs; Christmastime sucked. My second job, I was a chambermaid, where everyday pretty much sucked. My third job was a waitress at a local sports bar which didn’t suck at all!
  5. I’m a professional waitress, who’s worked in Australia, England, Cayman Islands and Italy, and have over 20 years experience serving the public. Yikes!
  6. I can do the splits, both ways (see #1).
  7. I graduated from college with a diploma in Human Relations. My favourite class was Deviant Behaviour. I used my new diploma to sling beer at all hours of the night, then followed my spirit down the path of travel to the center of Australia.
  8. I have super-sonic hearing and can watch a program in Italian, listen to my friends rattle on in Gallurese and hear the kitten mew down the street and, understand everything.
  9. After 18 years I can see my natural blonde locks, and I don’t like it.
  10. I have natural curly hair?

And now, for the 11th thing you didn’t know about me: I don’t like chain letters or chain blog posts, but I truly appreciate the mentions and links from fellow bloggers.  I won’t pass on this prestigious blogging award but I will place it on my mantle for all to see.

    Congratulations!
    You are definitely a physical one! I feel a sudden urge to sign up for a class or something.

  2. Too funny…I USED to love chain letters but not so much now. However, I do like blogging chain letters, lol! Thanks for keeping it going and it was nice to find out more about you! We have another thing in common…I took Isshinryu karate for 4 years (although I was young and gave up on it-wish I never had!).

    • I haven’t practiced any martial arts in a few years, I do miss it. It was great discipline and a killer work-out. I do still use it to keep in shape, albeit around the house and Hub and I spar sometimes. :)

  3. Fascinating. I USED TO BE ABLE to do the splits both ways. Notice the past tense!

    Hugs from Ecuador,
    Kathy
