50 Totally Boring Things About Me

Indigo asked me to play along with her on this List of 50 Things About Me....so I am, but since I am way to introspective sometimes, can't see that it is all that interesting....but anyway...here it is

1. My roommate and I once: got married.

2. Never in my life have I: Crossed the borders of my own country..and I soooo want to.

3. The one person who can drive me nuts, but then can always manage to make me smile is: my lovely precocious daughter.

4. High school was: Some of the best of times and some of the worst of times...yep yep.

5. When I'm nervous: Depends on what I am nervous about, I giggle, pace, chew my bottom lip, and/or jiggle my right foot.

6. The last time I cried was: Two weeks ago, but I allowed that for about 5 minutes, the time before that was in April...when a close friend died.

7. If I were to get married right now, my bridesmaids/groomsmen would be: family, but I really don't think I would ever want to be married again.

8. Would you rather run naked through a crowded place or have someone e-mail your deepest secret to all your friends? Me have secrets...who are you kidding, haven't you read my blogs? I tell all....don't I?

9. My hair: soo fucking frizzy in the humidity...but most of the time I am happy with it.

10. When I was 5 : I was painfully shy, my best friend was my big brother, and I lived beside a river and had the best summer.

11. Last Christmas: I spent time with family, and family, and family....too much Christmas.

12. When I turn my head left: I see outside my kitchen window, which is open, I can hear crickets chirping, and a faint whiff of a visting skunk..ewww!

13. I should be: sleeping right now.

14. When I look down I see: my legs propped up in their usual computer sitting position, one on the rung of a stool/table, and the other curled beneath me.

15. The craziest recent event was: work today

16. If I were a character on "Friends" I'd be: Pheobe, I love her zaniness and lack of fear to put herself "out there".

17. By this time next year: I will be one year closer to more FREEDOM of choice in my own life!

18. My favorite aunt is: too far away.

19. I have a hard time understanding: people who refuse to try new things, people who constantly gossip, people who cannot get past a person's race/color/or creed, people who are black and white thinkers.

20. One time at a family gathering:
I convinced everyone to stand underneath a waterfall to cool off, it was 100 degrees in the shade, everyone under the age of 45 did it too! Felt sooo good! I am the family activity instigator, and in the summer, it usually involves water, water ballon fights are the best! I like to get people moving!

21. You know I like you if: smile, say hey, I like everybody....you know I really like you if you have my trust.

22. If I won an award, the first person (people) I'd thank: Would be my family for putting up with me.... because to receive an award I would be totally focused.......and then I would suggest that they gave the award to the wrong person.

23. Take my advice: listen to that little voice inside us all, our intuition...it speaks our truths.

24. My ideal breakfast is: two eggs over easy, two slices of bacon, and a slice of rye bread--not toasted--soaking up that yummy egg yolk.

25. If you visit my home town: you will see prairie, and more prairie, and more prairie.

26. Sometime soon I plan to visit: my favorite great lake.

27. If you spend the night at my house: You will eat well, laugh often at the total zaniess of three of us, wonder who that grumpy man is watching tv, wonder why I spend so much time online, and probably end of with a dog or cat sleeping with you.

28. I'd stop my wedding if: Hell I wish I had stopped my wedding!

29. The world could do without: so much! Child abuse and hunger are two biggies.
