Random Salad Facts

  1. I’m one of the most accident-prone people you’ll ever meet in your life. I’ve injured most parts of my body in pretty random ways.
  2. I am a die hard OSU fan even though both of their major sports teams failed me this year. Don’t mention Michigan in my presence if you want to continue living. Oh, and if you support the Yankees, we can’t be friends (the Yankees are the only time I’m allowed to swear and not have it count toward the swear jar). I LOVE baseball and my favorite team is the Cleveland Indians.
  3. I love playing video games but I suck at the racing kind. I’m not sure why, but I have a hard time making it out of the start position and when I do make it out, I don’t usually make it out of the first lap before everyone else finishes. I really like first-person shooters, but only when the “cousin-stupid isn’t allowed to kill Salad” rule is in effect otherwise it’s no fun. We just got a Wii and the bowling for bunnies game is way fun too.
  4. I’m 6th generation LDS on both sides…I know, pretty boring. I have pioneer claims to fame, but I won’t bore you all with them because I’m kind of sick of telling the stories.
  5. I’m not the super scary LDS scrapbooking Utah Mormon type but I do quite enjoy bookbinding. It’s really therapeutic and quite satisfying. The only sad part is I’m a terrible journal-keeper so I don’t keep the books I make. Although, I did make a book for Drex of all the letters that we wrote back and forth while he was on his mission. I was really proud of that book.
  6. I LOVE learning. If I could get paid to be a student, I’d totally do it. I majored in history (obviously with no intention of having a lucrative career) and minored in English (again, no intention of being lucrative). Too bad we all have to grow up at some point and actually do something with ourselves. Both of my concentrations were complemented by education endorsements so I can at least do something with them…
  7. I’m a total nerd
  8. I love reading good books over and over and over again. Especially in the winter, curled up in a blanket with a mug of hot chocolate.

You mean, the scrapbookers in Utah are scarier than the ones in Texas? [shudder]

Shh, don't tell my wife I said that. She works at a scrapbooking store.

Speaking of accident prone, I totally ran into a wall on my bike the other night and have some pretty fantastic bruises.

Something tells me if you had done the same thing, you would have ended up in at least one cast ;)

Bunnies Don't Play Soccer is my favorite.

Bunnies Have a Great Ear for Music and any of the song or shooting ones are my favorites. I love smacking out of tune bunnies.

Bunnies Don't Understand Bowling is Salad's favorite. Something about knocking over swaths of bunnies in slow motion.

I think ANYONE would get paid to be a student--certainly beats PAYING to be a student. But I get the point. Hehe.

A few things:

You must get WarioWare--all games last 3 seconds and you can have up to 8 people play at the same time. Great game!

I love reading too--and in bed with a cup of hot chocolate is the best!

I can't scrapbook to save my life, but I can do a pretty good PowerPoint presentation with pictures and captions.

And being a teacher is a great way to be a life-long student because your students are constantly teaching you and you have to be up on the world to attempt to stay ahead of them.

I think that covers everything. You always have a lot of fun things to share.
