seven deadly things about me

i was tagged by my SIL sarah. here are 7 things about me:
1- i wish that i had matching flatware for 8. we got a really nice set of flatware for our wedding, but slowly and surely, pieces have been lost, misplaced, or eaten by the disposal. whenever we have people over to eat, i have to scrounge through the leftovers in the silverware drawer for acceptable fill ins. this time next year i will have a beautiful matching set and i will keep it locked in a secret drawer in my house!
2- i hate the color blue. i can't explain it. i rarely purchase blue clothing. looking in my closet, i have one blue shirt that i wear occasionally. very occasionally. more like rarely. when looking at houses, blue almost turns me off immediately. and pink is becoming a color that i don't like. it's just too much for me. everything for baby girls is pink. i am pinked out! where are all the cute black baby clothes??? there have got to be more options out there people. are we breeding a generation of conformists?
3- i can't eat japanese food anymore. two trips to kabuki while i was pregnant with scarlett has turned me off completely. just the thought of the scent of japanese food makes me want to run for the hills. i can't talk about it anymore.
4- i would like to take adult dance lessons. prehaps tap or jazz. or hip hop as all the youngsters call it these days.
5- i really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really wish i hadn't cut my all my hair off 2 months ago. i think i utterly despise it. i just don't feel like myself. i feel like i am supposed to have long glamorous, luxurious hair. even if it is only glamorous and luxurious in my own mind. i am trapped with another person's hair!
6- i would like to be a sharpshooter. i think it would be fascinating to be able to hit a target at a long range.
7- i would like to go on jeopardy, win the whole show, and then correct alex trebek on his pronunciation of an answer! it is so annoying when he does that on the show. the only reason he knows how to say anything is because he has the answer key and he was prepped before the show was taped. better yet, i would have my own game show called heidi vs. alex: ultimate trivia challenge. it would probably have a timed taco eating component and of course, wrestling.

by the way i think your hair is way cute! (even if you don't like it) and i love the jeoporady challenge. you vs trebek. it would be really interesting to see what that know it all really knows

Ditto about Alex Trebec. He's such a knowledge snob, and like you pointed out, it's not knowledge when you have the answers in front of you. I hate it when people miss a Daily Double and he's like, "Ooooh no. It's (blank)". Like the answer is the most obvious thing in the world and they're morons for missing it.

And I'm soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo disappointed you feel that way about your hair. It is so cute and lovely that I'm growing mine out so I can get to your length. I love your hair (and you) to pieces, but I know better than to get in between you and your hair (style/color/product). You gotta do what you gotta do!

heidi! i know i haven't commented in forever, but i have loved your frequent postings nonetheless. scarlett is so absolutely adorable. i wish we could see all of y'all. when will we manage to have a reunion??

as for your hair, i agree with natalie. you gotta do what you gotta do. as for me, i have entered that inevitable era of the "mom haircut." i just can't seem to do longer hair anymore. but thats okay, because i think i like my hair shorter -- when it gets too long it becomes thinner looking and more scraggly. you, on the other hand have such fabulously thick and silky hair, that i don't blame you for wanting it long and luxurious.

i am utterly and completely jealous that you got to go to paula deen's restaurant. that is on my to do list of whenever i one day make it to savannah.

hope you're doing well!

I am with you on the baby clothes!! Boys can wear pretty much anything but pink and purple, but if girls wear anything but PINK and PURPLE, everyone thinks they are a boy!! Even if it's a blue outfit with FLOWERS on it! They still say "Oh, HE'S so cute!"
