My question this week is inspired by memories of years past.

What is something that people would be surprised to know about you?

People would probably be  surprised to know that I was a HUGE hockey fan. In college I started to follow our local team thanks to my Uncle M. For several years I had season tickets for the team. If I do say so myself, I had an amazing seat. My ticket was three rows behind the home bench and center ice. Let me tell you I learned some interesting sayings from the hockey players! It was also through hockey that I went on fabulous road trips. We used to go all over to see games and even went to training camp for the NHL team several times. Would you believe that I even bid and won a game worn jersey of my favorite player? I sure did and it will make a fun Halloween costume in the future. Those were fun days.

It is thanks to my love for hockey that people often do not believe me that my oldest son’s initials were not purposely given. It was only after we named him that we realized that people would later tease me. Oh well, jokes on them we can get fun licensed merchandise for the big guy with his initials on it!

Here is my NHL back in 2004 wearing some of his hockey clothing.

    Hmmm…I hate all of the reality shows but love Dancing with the Stars! Would love to be able to dance like them. Stop by my Aloha Friday for a new leash on life!

  • ooooooooh I like Happyathome’s answer, but to be original that I’m a huge football fan. Love sports – football, baseball, hockey!

  • Qtpies7 says:

    Hmm, I don’t know what would surprise people about me. Except maybe the I think Keanu Reeves is a hottie, but my friends already know that, lol.

  • Cathi says:

    I have a bit of an issue with agoraphobia.

  • Spice says:

    I used to be a HUGE hockey fan years ago. A group of us went to as many NY Rangers games as we could. We’d have a blast too every time we went. I still have my real Sundstrom NY Rangers jersey too.

  • i’m just going to come up with something off the wall… i don’t know how to use our outside grill. everytime my husband bbq’s, i think… i should learn how to use that so i can do it myself. but as of now, still haven’t.

  • Jen E says:

    My mother’s family is related to people involved in the Salem Witch Trials and my father is related to the Founder of Salem – so the way I see it, the marriage was doomed from the start (they divorced when I was 3).

    That’s pretty much the weirdest thing I could think of – runner up was, “I’ve never flown a kite, gone on a picnic or been to Canada…”

  • That is too funny about the initials!

    I used to be an NHL fan – but i am only into watching my son playing hockey now. :)

  • kailani says:

    That my house is pretty much a mess at any given time.

  • Maisie says:

    That I’ve slept in past noon most of the summer. When school starts in a month, it will be back to early mornings.

  • Christine says:

    Other than I NEED to do two loads of laundry a day, NOT that I do them, which adds up if I don’t….so I am a big procrastinator, too.

    I did that with the alphabet, Joshua, Katelyn, Lindsay, and Marissa.
    Great minds, think alike!! :)

  • Hockey is a fun sport.

    Some people might be surprised to know that I’m a worry-wart. I worry about the smallest thing.

  • Anne says:

    wow I have no idea

  • Dee says:

    I change my mind often

  • Aloha Monkey says:

    Maybe that I’m a little bit of a control freak. Especially when I’m riding in a car. I’m finding that as I get older I get more paranoid on the road and tense up when other people are driving. I’m starting to find that I’m more comfortable when I’m in control of the wheel.
