Tag, I'm it!

I'm a little late at realizing this, but on December 11th, I was tagged by my cousin, Erin Corniea. Apparently that means I have to list five things about myself that few people know about me and then tag a maximum of five more people to do the same.
Normally, I'm the type of person who deletes chain emails without even reading them, but just for fun...I'll do it.

1.) I think I might be slightly ambidextrous. While I write and throw with my right hand, I do a number of things left-handed. I shoot pool left-handed, deal cards left-handed, and when I was a waitress I used to carry my trays left-handed. I'm not sure why or how this came to be in my life, but it's true.

2.) I have MAJOR texture issues. I can't eat anything with weird textures, whether I enjoy the flavor or not. I love marsala, but I can't stand mushrooms. Fried rice is a favorite, but please, hold the water chesnuts. And pretty much any seafood is out of the question unless prepared just the right way.

3.) If I could play any instrument in the world, it would be the cello. If I could speak any language in the world, it would be Arabic.

4.) Someday before I die, I am going to make it to Fiji. And,

5.) When it comes to music, I could sing anything for any amount of time in front of any amount of people and would never get nervous once. I could dress up in a clown costume and dance an Irish jig for the world to see - no problem! But ask to me play the piano, and I get sooooooooo nervous I don't know how to cope. My fingers sweat and slip off the keys, my hands shake, it's horrible. It's strange, though, that this only happens on piano solos. If I'm singing along with the piano as I play, it's not really a problem. It only happens when I'm "just" playing piano.

So there you have it - now you know just a little bit more about me. Now it's my turn to tag: I pick Dad, Brenton, and Nicole.

I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous.

This was interesting to read, and get to know you a little more. I too would like to listen to you sing forever and ever! I love your voice!
