I've been {gasp} tagged!

My Lime n Violet swap, Sarah partner has tagged me!
The rules are simple - each person tagged gives 7 random facts about themselves. They in turn tag 7 other bloggers, etc, etc, etc!
So here are 7 random facts:
1. I'm allergic to chocolate but that doesn't stop me from eating it - not too much of it or I'll suffer!
2. After 40 hours of labor and no pain medicaion, I gave birth to my first child, my son, who weighed a whopping 11 lbs 6.5 ounces. But the random fact is I broke my tailbone during delivery. [btw, he's 21 & 6'4" now - and still a pain in my ass!]
3. One or two of my ancestors came to the US on the Mayflower and one of their descendents was later Governor of Pennsylvania. This same relative also conspired with the French to off George Washington.
4. I rode the Giant Dipper in Santa Cruz 10 times in a row on our Senior Sneak day.
5. As a child, I wanted to be a teacher when I grew up.
6. I've never lived alone - and I've never lived anywhere but San Francisco.
7. I secretly like some of the rap music my daughter listens too!
