OOOOO! I've been tagged!

Susan over at ByGrace tagged me with the "six quirky things" meme! I hope I can come up with six odd facts about myself.

Here are the rules:

1) Link to the person who tagged me.
2) Mention the rules.
3) Tell six quirky yet boring, unspectacular details about myself.
4) Tag 6 other blogger´s by linking to them.
5) Go to each person’s blog and leave a comment that lets them know they’ve been tagged.

1. I once bit my parent's German Shepherd puppy on the neck because she was being too rough with my littles. She had just entered that Unbelievably Pesky Nuisance stage where a dog has gained much of its adult size and about half of its brain. She was teething and grumpy, and I had to give her a talking to. In dog language. I said, "Control yourself! Just because you're feeling badly doesn't mean you can pick on my kids!" That is, I held her down on the ground and bit her when she struggled. As soon as she submitted I let her go, and she's been sweet as sweet to my kids and very "nice nice" to me ever since. That's one of those things I look back at and think, "Did I really do that????"

2. I believe you can never have too many aprons. It's like armor for the home keeper. They complete my "working uniform".

3. I love kimchie. I hope that's how you spell it.

4. My favorite movie of all time is The Princess Bride. My husband and I can quote long passages to each other. (I know, romantic isn't it? "Ha! You are using Bonetti's defense against me!" "I thought it fitting, considering the rocky terrain." "Naturally you would expect me to counter with Capo Ferro." "I found a simple Thibaut maneuver defeats Capo Ferro." "That is unless a fellow has studied his Agrippa. Which I have!")

5. I can't watch my husband play first person video games. They make me nauseated.

6. I am the clumsiest person I know, and that's saying a lot. (This would be the reason I can't work without wearing an apron!)

Oh that was really fun to read. BTW, I love that sword fight scene in the movie, it's one of my favorites too.

You know, you are a bit quirky!

I feel like a real rat. I must decline because I can't figure out how to fix the comment section. Linking to someone else is a mystery.

Anybody wanna a peanut?
