7 things meme

I was tagged by Pattie for the 7 things meme. So here goes:

I have a phobia of birds getting tangled in my hair. I mean a real phobia, I freak out if birds fly anywhere near me. I had a boyfriend in college that thought it was hilarious to throw popcorn above my head when we were around pigeons. Needless to say that relationship didn’t last long.

I hated my husband when I first met him. I thought he was an obnoxious jerk.

I used to think homeschoolers were crazy. My next door neighbors before I had Logan homeschooled and their kids were really strange. I blamed homeschooling and thought homeschoolers really did their kids a disservice.

Some of you know this but not all. I have a PhD in virology. After I got it I taugh high school for 2 years and quit when Logan was born. I’m now Dr. Mom.

I find farts really funny. It’s left over from my childhood and how much my mom hated when we laughed at farts.

I’m scared to death of ghosts. Just the thought of them makes my blood run cold, yet I watch shows on hauntings whenever they’re on. Logan thinks it is hilarious.

Sarah Conner, from the Terminator movies, is my hero. I’m so excited she has her own show on tv! She’s just so damn cool!

OK, that was weird and random but that's me. I was also tagged for the archive meme which I will do in the next few days. I'm not tagging anyone for this meme since everyone has done this one or a similar one but I will tag some people for the archive meme when I do it.

PhD in Virology?? Wow! I'm impressed!

I never knew any homeschoolers until we actually started homeschooling, which is just as well - we're probably those "weird" homeschoolers next door ;).

Isn't it funny how life kind of tickles you into doing things you never thought you'd do ;)?

wow, PhD in virology? What did you study and what did you want to do with that?

Archive meme has me intrigued. I hope I get to read it soon.

Wendy - The weird homeschoolers next door really were weird! But I think they were just weird and homeschooling didn't have anything to do with it.

Erikka - I worked on making a vaccine to rotavirus and studied what type of immune response was necessary to have an effective vaccine. I never really wanted to do anything with it. I got a BS in biochemistry and everyone told me I needed to go to grad school, so I did. Once I finished my PhD I taught high school until Logan was born and then I became a stay at home, homeschooling mom. I do teach college biology 2 evenings a week so that PhD has come in handy.
