Six things you might not know about me - meme

I've been Tagged by Krist at My Life For The World To See for the six things you might not know or want to know about me, but I’m gonna tell you anyway. meme.

OK, what don't you already know?

Well, I've been to China. In high school I traveled with our local community symphony orchestra on a two week tour of China. It was an amazing experience. I only wish I'd been a little older so I would have appreciated it more at the time.

I live two hours from Seattle WA, but I don't drink Coffee - I made it through 5 years of college and 3 years of law school without developing a taste for it.

I love to cook. I started baking when I was 9 and haven't stopped yet. I used to collect cookbooks but have settled on my favorite 20 or so and do most of my cooking and baking out of my head.

I'm an old Rainbow Girl (International Order of the Rainbow for Girls - not the cult). I am Past Grand Page to the Supreme Inspector for Washington and Idaho, Grand Cross of Color member, and the first to win the state ritual competition for Charity's Lecture. If you know what all that means, I don't have to show you the secret handshake :0)

I'm a night owl more than a morning person - although as I get older I have a hard time getting things done at 2am like I used to.

I like to be in charge - I'm known for taking over everything I get involved with. Sometimes this is a good thing, sometimes it is not! I have control issues :-)

So Kim, CC, Jenny, Kimberly, Alicia, and Susie, tell me six things I might not know about you!


CC said...

Hmmm. I'll have to search deeply...

I'm so jealous you've been to China! My husband is Chinese and yet neither of us have ever been there. Been to Korea, Singapore, and Japan. But not China.

Susie said...

What a great tag! Thanks for thinking to include me:-) I will have to return the meme soon:-)

I have control issues I haven't been to China but heard it's awesome. Meggers and Daddy are the bakers in our family.

Great Post! Love learning a little bit about each of my bloggy friends.

Cool post! I'm a night owl too, although it is getting a little harder as I get older... :/

Kimberly said...

I think on some level ever mother has control issues. Thanks for the tag! How fun, my first tag!

Maddy said...

Gosh I've not heard of either kind of Rainbow Girl, but I suppose that's inevitable if you live under a rock like me!

If you have a free mo, pop over and pick up your award. [Saturday's post]

With all of the beautiful, scenic photos on your blog I always wondered where you lived. Now I know! My husband spent 6 weeks at Ft. Lewis this past summer, and he says it's breathtakingly beautiful out there. I've never been to WA, but have dear friends in Tacoma - so maybe one day...
