Whatchu Know About Me?!

... or rather, 10 things you may not know about me...

one: Something happened to me when I was in the hospital being born and as a result I have a pretty significant dent in my head.  As if having a dent in my head isn't enough, said dent is also a bald spot.  Which means certain hair styles won't work on me because well, you can see my dent/bald spot.

two: I was a cheerleader in high school and I am proud of it!  I also won the scholar-athlete award for the cheerleading squad my senior year and one of the other girls on the squad told me it was discrimination against stupid people that I won because she was a better cheerleader than I was.  Guess she missed the memo that it was a scholar-athlete award.

three: I have an irrational fear of escalators.

four: I used to be fluent in Spanish.  I say "used to be" because I feel like I have lost a lot of it since I don't speak it all the time.... BUT it does come back quite quickly when people start speaking it to me.

five: My husband and I never share the true story of how we met because I find it embarrassing.  We usually just say we met through a mutual friend... which is the truth, just not the whole truth.

six: When I was in 6th grade I was in an anti-bullying movie that the NHL put together.  I was in a classroom scene and a pizza shop scene.  I knew acting wasn't for me when I was forced to eat pizza at 8am even though I wasn't hungry and didn't want it.  Plus it was such a waste of pizza when they constantly made us take one or two bites out of a slice before we would have to re-shoot the scene.  This also is where my love affair with hockey began because a) I got to meet a bunch of NHL players and b) I got to attend a charity softball game where I got to again meet a bunch of NHL players.

seven: I play the flute. And am actually pretty good at it... so good that in middle school I played in a few duets in concerts.

eight: I love ketchup and tomatoes but I think tomato sauce/marinara sauce is one of the most disgusting things on the face of the planet.  If I could completely eliminate it from my diet I would... except I don't think the hubby would enjoy that too much.

nine: When I was in third grade I went through an identity crisis where I kept on changing my name.  My poor teachers never knew what time I was going to put on my papers.  Sometimes it was Elizabeth, sometimes it was Betsey... or Liz... or Lizbeth... or Beth... or Lizzie... I think I even used Eliza a few times.  In the end I continued to go by Betsey or Elizabeth depending on how many of the other Elizabeths were in my class.

ten: Although I have traveled all over Europe I have never been across the US border to either Canada or Mexico.

Did any of you know all of these random facts about me?
