Seven Random Facts Meme

Mary at Mary's Writing Nook tagged me for a Seven Random Facts About Me meme.

This was fun! For better or worse, here they are:

1) I was my class Spelling Bee champion in the seventh grade.
2) I can read and write backwards. I can also read a page that is upside down, as well as write upside down and write backwards, upside down.
3) When I was about 10 years old I was standing at the stove talking to my mother. Suddenly her eyes widened in terror and she started rapidly patting the back of my head. My hair had caught fire from the burner flame on the stove. I always thought that was brave of her.
4) I love to read mystery/suspense novels.
5) My very favorite song is Nessun Dorma sung by Luciano Pavarotti. It is so beautiful, it brings me to tears.
6) I love to sing. Unfortunately, no one within the sound of my voice likes for me to sing!
7) The farthest I've ever been from New Hampshire is Dallas, Texas. The plane was diverted to Houston due to tornados. I was very nervous. Fortunately, the man sitting next to me was an airline pilot. He explained how these situations worked and I stopped being nervous.

I am supposed to tag other bloggers. If they want to and have the time, I tag:

Hi Tina,

What interesting random facts about you! And scary stuff as well. Hair catching on fire, and being in a plane being diverted because of a tornado? Both pretty scary, if you ask me. I enjoyed your seven random facts. I have such interesting friends. :-)

I will do your meme sometime next week. I have another one to do that Michele tagged me for, and I just now remembered. Thank you for tagging me, Tina. I hope you're having a nice weekend.

Hugs,

Renie

Renie,

Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed my random facts! I was very lucky to have been in the company of people who knew what to do during both of those scary times.

I look forward to reading your meme. You are one of the most interesting people I know! :-)

Hugs,
Tina

I was tagged twice today, Tina! Ha ha! I've finished your meme (link is in above comment).

Now, I'm tagging you for a fun meme! "If you had an extra hour each day, what would you write?"

Here's the link to that one:

Tina,

Very interesting facts about yourself. I didn't know that your hair caught fire when you were a child. That was scary, yet you described it in a very calm way.

I have been on a plane that was diverted because of a blizzard, but never a tornado. Either way, it's scary stuff. Glad the airline pilot was sitting beside you and was able to make you feel more comfortable.

Thanks for taking part in the meme. Like Renie, I have very interesting friends. I can hardly wait to read her meme.

Michele,

I just read your 7 random facts meme and enjoyed it very much. Thank you!

I will be right over to read your new meme. This is going to be fun!
Thank you for tagging me. :-)

Smiling right back at you,
Tina

Mary,

I think it was so long ago (about 40 years!) that my hair caught on fire, that I sort of feel removed from it. Or maybe not - when I think of it, I can still smell my hair burning. That's odd, isn't it?

An airplane heading for a blizzard, now that is scary, too!

Thank you for tagging me. This has been fun!

Hugs,
Tina
