I've been tagged

I've been tagged by Melissa to share 7 facts about myself!

Here are the rules which you must abide by if you are tagged.
1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself: some random, some weird.
3. Tag 3 people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them).
4. Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment at their blogs.

Seven facts about me:
1. I eat really weird food combinations. Lately I have been putting cottage cheese in and on everything I eat, like chilli for example.

2. I do not watch television. We have a tv set but it is for watching dvd's. We do not get any cable or local programming. We are much happier not hearing the constant barrage of bad news all the time.

3. I hate shopping. GASP! I know, I am more like a man in this regard. But I really do detest shopping.

4. My favorite author in the whole world is James Herriot who wrote the "All Creatures Great and Small" series. I read them over and over and over and over!

5. I have a tendency to obsessively collect, shells, pencils, erasers. I am working on having only a few collections and letting some others go.

6. I have a genetic heart condition that causes me to pass out a lot. It gives me a lot of chest pain and makes me tired sometimes. But it is not fatal and it is kind of funny. I have to warn people I meet that if I pass out, not to worry, I will recover.

7. I mentioned that my hubby used to be a professional snowboarder. Well,....I was too! No kidding. Here is a picture of me in 1998:

We are still avid snowboarders, but we don't do competitions or anything like that anymore.

I have decided to tag:

That's So neat that you both were snowboarders!

I don't watch tv either - dropped Satellite a few years ago because I seldom have the tv on. Don't read the newspaper very often either- much too much negative stuff in the news.

I also dislike shopping, unless it's tatting stuff, crafts or garage sales, etc.

Snowboarding? That has to be exciting!

We share lots of common likes and traits, but not the snowboarding! I would be scared out of my wits. You look great and like you are having a blast!
