So I thought I was going to bed early tonight--

But then Barb tagged me. And I know if I don't do this tonight, I am going to be less likely to get it done any time in the next 3 weeks. Busy Times ahead! So here I am!

Here are the rules:

  1. You have to post the rules before you give your answers.
  2. You must list one fact about yourself beginning with each letter of your middle name. (If you don't have a middle name, use your maiden name).
  3. After you are tagged, you need to update your blog with your middle name and your answers.
  4. At the end of your blog post, you need to tag one person for each letter of your middle name. (Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged and that they need to read your blog for details.)
For once in my life, I am actually quite thrilled my middle name is Ruth. 4 letters is much easier than Barb's last name.

Here we go:

R is for relatives.

I come from a crazy ass family. Lots of divorce, lots of remarrying, lots of scandal. I grew up swearing I would never get married because I had no examples of successful relationships.

U is for University.

From the time I graduated high school (1997) to the time I moved to Wisconsin (2006) I lived in 4 different towns with a major university. I became so used to living in a college town that now that I'm *not* living in one, it feels kind of weird.

T is for Timing.

I have a bizarre talent of being able to tell you what time it is, within about 15 minutes, without a watch. I can also tell you about how long a movie, song, etc is, or how long something has been in the oven. I think it's because so much of my t.v. job is about timing things. It's like I have an internal clock constantly counting in 30 second intervals.

H is for Healthy, sort of.

Until recently I was proud to say I'd never had stitches, never been hospitalized, and never broken a bone. Then in a period of 12 months I had stitches (precancerous mole removal), spent 4 days in the hospital (gall bladder removal gone wrong), and broke 2 bones (two toes the night before shooting a wedding). My streak is over!

Now it's time for me to tag four people.

Steph Vetne (Because I want to know what her middle name is)
Stef Hamilton (see above reason)
Steph Howell (again, see above reason)
Em (because we have random things in common, and because I ran out of Stephs to tag)
