Five things

It’s a fad and I’m a follower. Five things only a few know:

1. I have a middle name. Since lots of people think of my double duty first name as two, most people don’t realize that Mom and Dad (and my big sisters) threw in a middle name, too. I’ll give you a hint: it starts with P.

2. At the age of ten I appeared in a summer stage production of South Pacific at the Springfield Muni Opera, in which I played the role of Ngana, Emile DeBeque’s Polynesian daughter. All my lines were in French.

3. I was a World Record holder.

4. I was married at 18. It wasn’t my first marriage. Oh, come on, I’m KIDDING. The first part is true.

5. I was allergic to all dairy products until I was about 12. Now I’m fine, but I seriously can’t deal with crumbly cheeses, even though they’re delicious.

  1. Sigh. Thanks for reminding me that I got tagged with this damn meme, and that I still have to do it. After two+ years of blogging on my main blog, though, it’s going to take a few brain cells to think of some things I HAVEN’T told people.

    Come on, what’s the middle name? Paulina? Peter, Paul and Mary? Pepper? Pajama?

    Hey, have you ever been part of a book club? Cause we so totally don’t really know each other, having met only that one time, but tonight I was sitting in a book club meeting in a coworker’s living room with a bunch of women I don’t know, and I thought “that Marijean would really like these women.” Random, eh? I don’t even know on what basis the thought came from. 🙂

    And actually, as I typed this, I saw your other “book blog” and read about your recent experience with a book club. I think all of us but 1 had read the book and we actually discussed it for an hour or so. Then they talked about their kids and made fun of their husbands. Not bad for a first try. 😉

    You know… sometimes I wonder if I’d rather be allergic to all dairy instead of ALL metals. I’m still thinking… that’s how much I love cheese.

    In other words… your allergy makes me sad.

    Thanks for playing the middle name game — it’s Patricia — I narrowly missed being called PJ.

    Cory — man — all METALS? WTF? How do you exist?
