Eight Things Meme

I was tagged by JediJawa with the Eight Interesting things meme, so here goes:
  1. My house (my bedroom, to be precise) was hit by a tractor-trailer when I was five years old. Since then I've harbored an irrational fear of tractor-trailers.
  2. I'm thinking of growing my hair out for Locks of Love. But I'm afraid that they'll send it back because they can't do anything with it either!
  3. I took gymnastics lessons at the same place (and at the same time) that Mary Lou Retton did. She learned much better than I did.
  4. My eyes are terrible and have been all my life. My secret wish is to wake up in the morning and be able to see.
  5. Contrary to common belief, I was born in Richmond, Virginia.
  6. My family has lived on the same piece of land since the Revolutionary War.
  7. My first major purchase after I finally got out of grad school and got a real job was WVU season football tickets.
  8. Eight is my lucky number!

Oh how fun. Let me see now.

And it doesn't sound like your fear of tractor trailers is all that irrational!

I finally got around to playing along.

1. I donated my body to science; they sent back a card saying no thanks.
2. The Red Cross won’t take my blood either.
3. I never get a cold; my body is too toxic for germs to live in.
4. I turned down a job with a computer company in 1971 and instead went to work for a steel company.
5. I didn’t invest in IBM because I figured who needs to make copies when we have carbon paper.
6. I went to Hawaii for a fortnight; coming back I got stranded in Chicago and when finally I made it home we had record rainfall and the next day snow.
7. When I was born the doctor took one look at me and slapped my mother.
8. I once voted for a republican.
