The 10 random facts meme

I was tagged by spellwight

I will say 10 random facts about myself then tag 5 people. the five tagged people then have to post a blurb and 10 random or weird facts about themselves in a bid to get to know everyone better or something.

1. I still have one baby tooth that I never lost.
2. I used to be near-sighted in just one eye, but after just one year of wearing one contact lens the vision corrected to normal.
3. I was one of Minnesota's representatives at the International Science Fair my senior year of high school.
4. I have never watched a single episode of American Idol.
5. I am slightly obsessed with a certain blonde vampire...
6. I collect postcards and I now have postcards from every single continent, including Antarctica
7. I don't have a passport because I've never been out of the US except for two times driving into Canada.
8. I found out that I have ADD when I was 27 years old.
9. I have never broken a bone.
10. I quit caffeine 74 days ago.

As for tagging 5 people, how about you, you, you, you, and you?

OK. Here's where things get spooky:

1. I still have one baby tooth that I never lost.

I still have two baby teeth that I never lost. My teeth are packed in so tight, that they never fell out and the adult teeth came in around them (one through the front of the gum, one through the back)

2. I used to be near-sighted in just one eye, but after just one year of wearing one contact lens the vision corrected to normal.

I also used to be nearsighted only in my right eye. For years, I wore a single contact lens. However, my right eye never got better - it's actually stayed stable, while the left eye is trying to catch up to it.

4. I have never watched a single episode of American Idol.

Ditto.

7. I don't have a passport because I've never been out of the US except for two times driving into Canada.

Even though I'd visited nine different countries, I didn't actually have a passport until March of this year (at the age of 36). Almost all of my international travel was with the Army, where I was under a Status of Forces Agreement, so I didn't need a passport.

9. I have never broken a bone.

Likewise.

10. I quit caffeine 74 days ago.

As of three weeks ago, I've taken the morning coffee out of my weekdays. I still have coffee when I get up on the weekends, though.

Eek! It's like you are stalking me or something! :)
My baby tooth never fell out because there was no adult tooth behind it to push it out.
My near-sighted eye is was my right one also. At Basic Training when they tested us for eye dominance to determine if we would shoot left handed or right handed I had to make them redo the test. They were too close the first time so the right eye came up dominant. I told them to back up a couple feet and do it again and my left eye came up dominant (common sense...left eye could see distance, right eye couldn't!) They were completely baffled because they'd never seen such a thing!

5. I am slightly obsessed with a certain blonde vampire...

You and my daughter. She's got a poster on her wall, begged me to take her with me to D*C a couple years ago when he was there, and has taken up half my DVR with recording of his best episodes.

Yeah, I drove to Toronto with a friend to see him, and me & hubby's California trip last year was planned around me seeing him. He's so sweet in person! (and hot!)

I don't miss the caffeine, just my Diet Mountain Dew!
Caffeine is a horrible evil drug with nasty side effects and even nastier withdrawl symptoms, but yet it's 100% legal and uncontrolled while I have to jump through frickin' hoops every month to get my Ritalin. grrr.

Yeah, my Mtn Dew cravings have lessened. I don't hesitate before choosing flavored water from the machine each time now. :)

And it's not the Ritalin people that are evil, it is the U.S. Food & Drug Administration. They are the ones who put it on Schedule B, the same list as cocaine, methamphetimine and morphine. *sigh*
