Top 6 List

Since Natalie tagged me and Amanda and Diania keep reminding me of this fact, here are six things about me for your reading pleasure:

1. In my opinion, macaroni and cheese (and not of the Kraft variety) is probably the best thing ever invented. Especially from Noodles & Co., although the mac & cheese Diania made for our work Halloween party may be my new favorite.

2. I've had front row seats at Late Show with David Letterman--twice. I know the system of how to get good seats, so if you're ever in NYC with a ticket to see my favorite funnyman, give me a holla'. As a bonus fact, I used to have a huge crush on Letterman when I was a kid. I have NO idea why, but I used to tell my mom I was going to marry him someday.

3. Things pointed at my eyes are not my friends. I have a very strange phobia about having something pointed at my eyes. This includes upside-down pencils (mid-erase), optometry equipment and red hot pokers.

4. I get more excited than a person should over dessert. I almost never turn it down. Actually, I don't think I have ever turned it down. One dessert highlight includes a particular high school Friday night when
Jill & I bought a German chocolate cake from the Smith's bakery and ate the whole thing by ourselves.

5. I have a fear of fish, but only in lakes. I am SCUBA certified and have gone diving in the ocean without being scared but the thought of jumping into a lake seriously makes my skin crawl.

6. In homage to
Amanda's fascinating childhood injury story, I once cut my head open, requiring a trip to the ER and a lovely row of stitches, by falling on a notebook. This story is to help just in case you were on the fence about whether or not I really am/was the world's biggest nerd. Since I loved school supplies so much, I wouldn't part with my new notebook. So 6-year-old me, clad in my best leggings and favorite Cabbage Patch Kids sweatshirt, followed my parents into our neighbor's house, tripped over their broom and fell smack onto my sprial-bound notebook. I'm still scarred, and not just on my head.

Now I tag Abby, Ali, Aubrey, Maegan, Teri & Sarah. Ready... Go!


Sarah said...

Dude, I so already filled out this tag! I didn't tag you because I saw that you had already been tagged, but if you want I can make up some interesting stuff about myself and do it again.

Cichelli said...

I was tagged like eight million years ago, long before you entered the blogosphere. Should I do it again anyway?

MandoRama said...

A spiral notebook? Hahahahaha! Who knew school supplies (and, in my case, furniture) were so dangerous!? Just another case for home schoolin' - can't hurt yourself too badly on the family couch.

Tyler said...

Miranda will you please wear the leggings and cabbage patch sweat shirt next time we get together? Call me before hand so I can wear mine and we can be twins!

Teri and Mark said...

I love the injury story. I am going to try and one-up-you on that, but it's going to be hard!

Diania said...

I even love Kraft Mac and Cheese. I could eat it everyday and be happy.

Justin and Jill said...

German chocolate cake is still my favorite dessert, although I haven't devoured a whole one since the good old days! You and Jackson could go out to dinner since mac-n-cheese is his favorite too...could Zack create a mac and cheese pizza?
Well, nothing is better than a "Miranda falling" story. I like to picture the frequent falls down the stairs. Thanks for the laugh!

Oh Miranda...I wish we were BFF's back in the day. I mean, you weren't cool if you didn't have a Cabbage Patch sweatshirt. I love it!!! Thanks for the great laugh!
