5 Random Family Facts

I’ve shared tidbits about me (and my family) all over his blog, there’s still more for you to learn about us. You already know the coolest fact which is Brian and I share the same birthday, but I have more fun things to share… Not that we are the most fascinating people or anything, but maybe that’s why these lists are so interesting. You get to see that I’m not so different from you. (Or maybe I am?)

Maybe that’s comforting… Or a relief? I don’t know. Maybe it’s just paving the way for us to become online besties! (Did I just use that word? I hate that word…)

Anywho here are 5 random facts about my family:

1. We’re gamers. Even if I don’t get a lot of time for it these days I am still one deep in my heart. Heck I wrote about gaming for a couple years. Both Brian and I grew up gaming and Rissa has already been introduced to it as well.

2. We’re metalheads. Yup, it’s true. Well I can’t quite speak for Xander yet. We do listen to a variety but our preference tends to be heavy metal and all (well most) of its many genres. Rissa can headbang and continues to work on throwing the horns. \m/ Her love of rock ‘n roll began in the womb.


3. Brian is our family historian. He’s quite passionate about genealogy and writes about it too. He’s found some very fascinating things like my connection to English royalty. (All hail Queen Darcy! has a nice ring to it dontcha think?)

4. My daughter and I have the same dimple in the same spot on the left side… Top of the cheek dimples aren’t super common I don’t think. Not as common as middle of the cheek anyway.


Wow it was much harder to find pics to share that show you this than I thought it would be! On the left is a young Darcy. On the right is old Darcy with Rissa.

5. Brian is the only one baptized. I’m not and neither are my children. (No we aren’t Satan worshippers – don’t worry!) Someday I should write more about this, eh?

If that has left you wanting to know more…. here’s 10 Things You Probably Shouldn’t Know About Me…first one is about my fear if clowns. *shudder*

Did any of these surprise you? Tell me some random facts about your family!

Have Something To Say ?

    Does a broken Wii count us as gamers?

    Classical music here, so quite the opposite.

    I love genealogy myself, but haven’t done any research in years.

    One of my kids has my dimples. I forget which one. :O

    Nothing wrong with that. It was a bit awkward in Catholic school when the nun asked who wasn’t baptized and I was the only one. But at least it was my decision later.

      Haha only if its broken from being used a lot ;) j/k

      I bet that was awkward..I had a friend who went to Catholic school but he was an atheist. That was not easy for him. I just went to public school.DarcyZalewski

    I was baptized 3 times. It didn’t work.

    Also, I sleep like a baby to metal. That’s weird isn’t it? It’s true though, the harder themusic is the harder I sleep!

      I almost got baptized once….

      We all can fall asleep to metal too! There are some songs that pump me up but mostly I do find metal comforting rather than agitating like some say it is.DarcyZalewski

    We are actually a gamer family too. For awhile there, it was boss fights every Saturday night in LOTRO. These days we play Lego Batman, and our son plays with us!

    I was an only child until the age of 9.
    I have five younger siblings but none are full-blooded or by one parent exclusively.
    My husband is Filipino and a gamer (fighter, shooter and RPG’s on PS3). I have dabbled in Street Fighter, Mortal Combat, Singstar and Rock Band.
    I didn’t want children, but life happened and I felt different by 33.
    I had my daughter just before I turned 35. She will likely be the only one.

      I’m the opposite on the siblings – I’m the youngest and have 6 half sisters. Makes things s little more interesting yet confusing, I think. Thank you for sharing!DarcyZalewski

      I know my daughter has dimples, but just today I realized you said you & Rissa have the top of the cheek dimple…so does my daughter & hubby, on the right side though! I didn’t know it was less common.

        That’s so cool that they have it too! Well I didn’t do any research so I honestly don’t know if it’s less common but I’ve never seen anyone else with a top cheek dimple or heard anything about them before. Just watch I’m totally wrong lolDarcyZalewski

    My Hubby and I play Diablo 3 together, occasionally. I don’t play games like that very often, always too much to do with four kids. ;) I love genealogy and look forward to learning more & becoming more proficient at it. Great random facts! Visiting from Mama Kat’s, as well as returning your visit to my blog!

      Genealogy now makes history more interesting than it was in school. Plus it’s neat to see where you came from!DarcyZalewski

  8. Jenny @ MyLittleMe February 1, 2013 Reply

    I love that you both have that rare dimple. That’s pretty cool for you to share that!

    We used to be gamers, but I quit a long time ago. Hubby just plays skyrim now while I do other things.realmylittleme
