So, Paula the Surf Queen tagged me back after I tagged her, so I have to do this 8 things meme that was floating around.  I honestly was hoping this one would miss me. Why well because I am great at writing about me today.  I am not so good about writing about my past.  I am going to use Paula’s 8 things as inspiration for mine though, so here goes.

  1. I have never broken a bone in my body.  I have said that my finger was broke before because it is shaped strange and has a big bump on it, but honestly.  I don’t think it ever was.  It is just weird shaped.
  2. I was in the Army when I got out of high school.  I only was in for 11 months though.  I got an honorable discharge, but it didn’t feel all that honorable at the time.  The miracle in all this though is that I even passed basic training.  I have no idea how I did it today.  I failed gym class in high school one time for not wanting to change my clothes in front of other girls.  In the army, I did push ups naked with other girls….man that sounds dirty.  It was more disgusting and stressful though.
  3. I have never burned down a forest.  I as a matter a fact have a very hard time even lighting a match.  It takes me several minutes with a book of matches and most the book will probably be gone in the process.
  4. I can’t think of anyone famous that I have met or even would want to meet.  I am not all that star struck.   I liked some of Boy Georges music though.
  5. I had a Beagle when I was a kid.  My mom made me name it Princess.  I hated that name.  I wanted to name it Sacajewia, like the Indian lady.  I never really accepted that this dog was mine because I wasn’t allowed to name it. 
  6. I was at Walmart one time and a truck drove over the hood of my car while I sort of watched.  I was about 10 feet from my car walking toward the store when this happened.  I blogged about this when it happened, but I can’t find that post now.
  7. My name is Jennifer Hitchcock, but I have only ever seen one Alfred Hitchcock movie.  That movie was The Birds and I didn’t like it.
  8. I really can’t cook that well, but I probably could do a lot better than I actually do.  I would rather go out to eat though any day.

Ok, so there is my Paula inspired 8 things.  Now…I am to pick 8 people for this hard task of picking 8 things about themselves.
