Top 2 Tuesday: Random Things

Top 2 random things about me?

1. I have a tattoo. I'm a pretty straight-laced person. A rule-follower. An over-achiever. And when my sister got her first tattoo I decided I wanted one too. I was in middle school or early high school when she got hers, and by my freshman year of college, I was old enough to get one & still wanted one. My roommate and one of our next door neighbors each wanted one, too, and we ended up getting our tattoos in the same place--near our left ankles. I still love my tattoo, 5 years later.
{from L to R: roommate's, mine, neighbor's}

2. I mentioned this on Saturday...I have an unnatural affinity for The Wizard of Oz. It's the first movie I remember watching and loving. It's the one my parents had to suffer through 87 million times because it's all I wanted to watch. When I was four or five, my parents, sister and I went to Texas to visit my grandparents. My mom thought it would be fun to take pictures of my sister and I in some of the wild flower fields, and I threw the temper tantrum to end all temper tantrums...My mom and I decided when I was about 12 that the reason I reacted that way was because I was probably scared of the poison poppies! My junior year of college I was the Rush Dinner Coordinator for my sorority, and naturally we had an Oz-themed dinner. All of the Oz memorablia we used was from my personal collection. And I was a little embarassed to see it all in one place! A lot of my stuff is in the form of Hallmark Christmas ornaments, so it doesn't stay out all year round...Here are some pictures from the dinner...
Each table had a different theme: Glinda, Emerald City, Yellow Brick Road, Wicked Witch of the West, Ruby Slippers, and Oz (general). I insisted that I They let me stand in front for the group picture since I was the Rush Dinner Chair.

Hope you enjoyed a glimpse into my randomness! Head over to Taylor's to link up!
