three more random facts about foam... i think that might take me up to 8...and i think i'm done with the 8 random facts....yeah..

....
or too much info about the foam
6. I wiggle my feet back and forth when i go to sleep. Always have. My mother says that is how she new if I was awake or asleep as a baby and as a child. wiggly feet indicated an awake child. However, i've gotten sneaky in my old age. when my husband enters the bedroom and 2 or 3 at night and i wake up i don't wiggle my feet. but, alas, that often times doesn't do a bit of good .


7. I have an absolutely horrible sense of direction. Today I went to a workshop that was out of town, equipped with directions and everything. ....well, i won't bore you with the details..
i know why i leave early.

8. i may have mentioned this before...but i have a fear of heights. however, while whitewater rafting on the new river with my hubs for his 40th birthday, which was my present to him, i thought we came to the end of the trip. i barely paid attention when our guide mentioned that we could also get out here .. or further down the river. although the rafting experience had been exhilarating, I was becoming exhausted. the rapids had been vigorous 3's and 4's. i was ready to get out. we climbed up a cliff, a really steep and high cliff. and then i got to the top which descended with a vertical drop back into the the river. the only way down was to jump. what i had not properly heard is that folks who wanted to experience jumping off a really tall cliff, 3 stories to 4 stories high could get out here, jump down and join up with the raft a bit further down. so, foam sucked it up, pinched her nose shut with one hand, held on to her glasses with her other hand (they did have straps on), jumped ... and then swam to meet up with the raft. and then, a few minutes later the rafting experience was finally over.

....
and since i'm already posting too much info about the foam...which is all a big fat lie anyway, i'll go ahead and post a photo... if i can find a decent one..
you'll have to click on it to enlarge it..
i think it's a good one:
* see? it's right here to the left of the star,. go ahead, click on it.

Hi Foamy'...I wiggle me' feet too..not as fast as I used to when I was a kid though...hmmm'..wonder if that's bad...

wondering about the rafting...wondering if I can handle that...have always been a bit on the clumsy side..tripping here..falling there...I might get swept away by the current...I can just see me with my arms up...flinging them high to call attention...

Oh' thanks for the nice comment you left on my bloggy'...I lived with my hubz for a year before we got married...my kids don't know this...We weren't really all that planning to tie the proverbial knot then but both our parents were so scandalized...the neighbor's looked at me funny....I didn't really care...one day while we where both playing "pacman" he turns to me and asks if I'd want to...he also asked if he had to get down on his knees like in the movies or something...Are you nuts? was my reply...I beat him on that game that day. We bought a half gallon of ice cream to celebrate. Then we bought a cheap ring.

luxie,
the trick to a successful white water rafting trip is to find yourself in a raft not only with a strong spouse, but 3 other tall and burly germanic male Ohioans. we didn't know them, but boy, did they add some muscle power.
we were the only raft that didn't flip..of course having an experienced guide also helped. everybody gets swept away in the current if they fall out. the trick is to lay on your back and go down the rapid feet first until you get to the still part of the water. i'm glad i didn't have to do that.

about living together before marriage. when mr foam and i finally did get hitched, my very unconventional mother said..."so, you're going to do the old fashioned thing?"

yes, ruela, it is a good picture. isn't it?

foam said...

/t. if i had only one foot, i'd be wiggling it too.

Little Lamb said...

You're a trip!

dd said...

..................... said...

Ruela said...

Muito Fixe. :)

X. Dell said...

From that photo, I can see that you're getting a big head, and that you're become somewhat frosty.

Great series. Worth the wait.

Nothing in this world would have made me jump off that cliff, though.

foam said...

obrigada, ruela..:)

x.dell,
hmmmmmmm, interesting dilemma because jumping down the cliff was the safest way off..

Ruela said...

Usted es rubio?

HLiza said...

Ha ha..I wiggle my feet too..my mom said I look like some kind of 'naughty' girl if I do that and always ask me to stop it. But I think I don't do that anymore now..before I can start wiggling..hubby can hear me snore already!
I'm not afraid of heights..that's one thing I'm happy about..but my hubby does! One of my dream is to go bungee jumping..he he..

foam said...

ruela,

cuando estoy una cerveza rubia..;)

hliza,
haha..
so the wiggly feet thing is more common than i realized.
bunjee jumping... i think i'd die before i'd jump.

Mayden' s Voyage said...

..................... said...

Merelyme said...

heh...love the photo. you are so full of fun surprises. we share some of the same fears...i have a great fear of heights too. i hadn't known you have two icons. you clever gal!

/t. said...

i have
two feet...

but didn't wish
to sound like i was bragging ;)

/t.

Little Lamb said...

How do we know /t. has 2 feet? Has anyone seen them?

foam said...

merelyme,
thanks..and
depending on which google email i use determines which icon shows up.

/t.
little lamb is right. how do we know you have two feet? we want proof...

Ruela said...

we want proof,we want proof,we want proof,we want proof...

foam said...

maybe we already had proof..
maybe it was contained in his more recent work called "nerd descending a staircase"..;>
(just kidding, of course)

Ruela said...

what's a nerd?

foam said...

i could have a smart ass answer to that one, but i won't go there....;)

hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, a nerd....lol....

well, let me give you a famous example of a nerd who is also extreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeemly rich....

bill gates

Little Lamb said...

/t. won't give us proof.

/t. said...

proof?

you ask me
to give you proof...

you think that i am some cheap-ass televangelist fake -- you need me to entertain you while i con you with cheap carnival tricks -- the proof is i told you i have two feet -- believe it or don't -- you will get no more proof

now lamb, gigolo -- it is your wedding day -- entertain me!

/t.

Little Lamb said...

How should I entertain you? What will Ruela say?

Ruela said...

ruela is ok with this
let's video our honeymoon...

Little Lamb said...

I don't want us to video the private parts of it.

..................... said...

CHILDREN!
ya'll behave yourself..

i'm feeling old today..
my heart can't handle all this romance..private or not..

ps: so, when's the divorce?

Little Lamb said...

Foam we just got married. I don't want to talk about divorce just yet.

foam said...

okay..

Kate said...

He came home and started to do his homework. One look in his notebook and his face went pale. "OMG Mom, I need a PIE costume for tomorrows play!" After sobs and stories he had persuaded her to make the costume... How would a play about THanksgiving be, with the pie absent? lol

Have a fun day.. now that the pressure is off! lol

..................... said...

that's the problem, kate.
i don't think he ever wrote that particular bit of information in his notebook.

Little Lamb said...

It seems like Ruela wants a divorce. He hasn't been else lately.

foam said...

oh dear....
but you know what they say about sculptors..

she said...

nice head o foamy, foamy! have a good weekend! go see the movie and well tawk

foam said...

hey she,
good to see you out and about. how's the neck? eventually we'll probably see the movie. this weekend is all about the kids.

Little Lamb said...

What do they say about sculptors?

foam said...

hmmnnnnn,
what do they way about sculptors?
i don't know.
i was hoping you could tell me know that you've been married to one and divorced one all in a few days.

the.red.mantissa said...

ditto for me on 7 and 8. regarding 7, i am so impaired i have trouble looking at a map even ... no kidding.

as for me and my move ... wow ~ even something so basic as crossing the street will be different.

foam said...

mantissa,
good to see you out and about again!
yes, i am also map challenged.
...and good luck on that move!

Little Lamb said...

He doesn't want to talk about divorce.

foam said...

that's cause he's smitten, little lamb..
even though he is a gigolo.

Little Lamb said...

Yes, he is a gigolo for sure.

Nice foam.
