More Randomness

I’ve done the 7 Random Things meme before, but since I’ve been tagged not once but twice with it again recently, I’m going to try to come up with 7 more randoms…

1. Growing up, the one thing that I would have NEVER answered if asked “What do you want to be when you grow up?” would have been “I want to be an accountant!” Yes, I am a Certified General Accountant.
2. Even once I started working on my Bachelor of Commerce at Dalhousie University and had accepted that somehow I was going to be an accountant, I very deliberately avoided applying for government jobs… I mean – who in their right mind would want to be a civil servant? I work for the Government of Canada.
3. While I enjoy singing, I don’t do it in public (except in church) following my solo in the Christmas concert when I was in first grade. I dropped my prop present into the audience… I wasn’t an empty box but rather a block of wood wrapped in Christmas paper! I’m lucky no one got hurt.
4. Growing up, our family pet was a rabbit. Its name was Mopsy. We had no idea whether Mopsy was male or female… Mopsy had an outdoor hutch.
5. I never ever cut class when I was in school. Even in university, I just couldn’t do it without a really good reason. I felt too guilty.
6. When I was in Grade 2, I was sent to the principal’s office because I had hit one of the boys in my class with my umbrella. I was protecting a friend of mine, so I wasn’t really punished, but both I and the little boy got a stern talking to. His name was Roland.
7. I am very ticklish! My sisters used to like to use this to their advantage when we were kids. They would wrestle into a blanket and one of them would hold me down while the other one tickled me until I begged for mercy.

I'm not going to tag anyone, since I've done this before, but if you haven't done this meme, considered yourself effectively tagged! (Leave me a comment to let me know that you've done it so that I can come over and read it, okay?) And for even more random facts about me, you could always read this.

I can't exactly say the same about number five. I still have nightmares about skipping class and not knowing what was going to be on the tests!

Okay, I've been summoned. Lisa has also questioned my lack of random today it will be done.
