Bobbi Tagged Me

Apparently I've been tagged, thanks Bobbi :-P Now I am supposed to share seven things about myself that most people don't know. Okay, here goes.

1. I can't stay awake on a car trip. My mom tells me I've always been this way. I don't know if it's the warm, close quarters or the movement but it lulls me to sleep everytime. I know James knows this about me, LOL. The first half of our frequent trips to Oregon are pretty quiet, because I'm all but guaranteed to be asleep.

2. My least favorite chore is mopping the floors. Ugh, hate it, 'nuff said.

3. I sing along with my iPod or in the car when I don't think anyone is listening. At least I hope most people don't know this, LOL. My rendition of Unbreak My Heart is not pretty, I'm sure.

4. I get bored during concerts, recitals, and operas. As a musician, I feel awful for admitting it, but sometimes I can't stop glancing at my watch during an especially long piece. I love Beethoven, but sitting through a symphony that I'm not playing in can get dull, I admit it.

5. I love to write formally (like papers for school or whatnot) and I've been told that I'm good at it, but it seriously stresses me out! I'm a procrastinator, so that combines with the pressure and expectations to make me pretty unbearable a week or so before a deadline. But, once it's all done and over with, I love to read my own writing - does that make me egomaniacal? Maybe...

6. My favorite color changes all the time. For a long time it was yellow, and then it was cobalt blue, and I've always had a soft spot for any shade of green. I think I should adopt Allegra's response to the "what's your favorite color" question - rainbow.

7. I'd rather read a book than watch tv. I like tv well enough, but nothing beats snuggling under the down comforter and reading a great book. Speaking of books - I have quite the library, but I hate loaning my books out because I can't stand when the page corners get bent or the cover gets scuffed. :-)

Okay, so anyone reading this that hasn't been tagged, you are now "it", so please share seven things about yourself that people don't know.
