Meme alert (8 Secrets About Me)

Navelgazing Midwife tagged me (I'm flattered!).

Rules: People who are tagged need to write in their own blog these rules & the eight things. At the end of the your blog post, tag six people and list their (blog) names. Leave a comment on their blog telling them they've been tagged and encourage them to read your blog.

1. I have never smoked anything. Not even one cigarette, not even a puff.
2. I have always wanted to show up at a job interview in my 1986 prom dress (Gunnie Sax, southern belle era) just to see folks' reactions.
3. If I could sing well I would be pursuing a career on Broadway (there is the theatrical in me).
4. I scream very loudly if startled. Just ask my spouse (my parents, my sons, our newspaper delivery man...). ED: I just screamed right now: lightening hit close to our building and the thunder was sudden and very loud!
5. My maternal grandfather was an old-school Baptist minister in Alabama.
6. I am atheist.
7. I was a big skinny-dipper in college: the Red Cedar River, the fountain pools in front of the library, various apartment swimming pools (so I was a trespasser, too).
8. I take a 10 mg. daily dose of Lexapro (for anxiety); it works beautifully. Hypochondriacs of the world take heart!

SIX people?!! That's a lot. O.K., let me see:

Brown Berry
Doula Matt
The Little Red Hen
Sandy D.
Radical Doula
A Little Bit of Suburbia

Thanks for the tag! My answers are up on my blog.

And re: Lexapro. I'm on Ativan, and it works beautifully for my anxiety, too. Hurray for meds that work!

You are the sweetest! Thanks for tagging me and I will definately get to writing when I get back... I took Lexapro for a year for anxiety/depression worsened by post partum! I really liked it (odd to say I liked a medication, but it changed my life). There's another random similarity we share. I'm about to go visit The Weaving Works here in Seattle and hopefully pick up a drop spindle (exciting!).

Generic Zocor Simvastatin drug is an hmg-coa reductase inhibitor or "statin" used to lower bad cholesterol (LDL) and triglyceride levels in your blood or to raise good cholesterol (HDL) levels in adults.

Generic Lipitor ATORVASTATIN drug belongs to the group of medicines called 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase inhibitors.It works by blocking an enzyme that is needed by the body to make cholesterol, thereby reducing the amount of cholesterol in the blood.


Generic Crestor Rosuvastatin drug is used to reduce the amounts of LDL (bad) cholesterol, total cholesterol, triglycerides (another type of fat), and apolipoprotein B (a protein needed to make cholesterol) in the blood. Rosuvastatin also increases the level of HDL (good) cholesterol in the blood. These actions are important in reducing the risk of atherosclerosis (fatty deposits in the arteries), which can lead to heart attack, stroke, and peripheral vascular disease.


Generic Norvasc Amlodipine drug is used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure) and to treat angina (chest pain).


Generic Plavix Clopidogrel drug is used in the prevention and treatment of heart attack, stroke, blood clots, and acute coronary syndrome.
