Eight things about me (Heather)

Whitney has tagged me to join in the 8 Random Facts About Me meme. Well, not really but I wanna play too.

First, the Rules:

1) Post these rules before you give your facts

2) List 8 random facts about yourself

3) At the end of your post, choose (tag) 8 people and list their names, linking to them

4) Leave a comment on their blog, letting them know they’ve been tagged

And now… my facts:

  1. I have been living in the Bay Area for 10 years now. I thought for sure I’d be gone after four.
  2. I hate mangoes. Hate all stone fruits. Ick. Must have been all those canned peaches I was offered as a little girl. But I make sure that Holden eats lots of good fresh California fruit and doesn’t share my aversion.
  3. I am co-writing a book, due out in April 2008. I can hardly wait to see and feel the weight of it.
  4. I love to have my toenails painted but I hate to have my fingernails painted.
  5. I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.
  6. Breakfast is my favorite meal to eat out at a restaurant. As a mom, I like to get there right at 8am and beat the crowds, celebrating my status as an early riser.
  7. I can’t dive in a swimming pool. I’ve always been afraid to learn.
  8. So far, I’ve only not been pregnant or nursing for six weeks of my marriage. Yikes.
