View Full Version : 28 random things about yourself..

M&M's Mommy

Got this idea from another forum. I think we should have one here, too.

I'll go first:

1). I love God & the Catholic Church with all my heart and soul. The more I study about God and the Chuch's teachings, the more I love them.

2). I was born right-handed, but have learned to be dual-handed now.

3). When I was 12 yr old or so.. I shared a house with a dog, a cat, a duck, a chicken, 2 birds, a rabit, a tank full of fishes, and about 20 crikets all at once :)

4). I still feel like I'm a newcomer to the U.S., even though I've spend more years in the U.S. than in Vietnam!

5). I only have 1 brother who's 13 years my junior!

6). I am completely tone deaf. I can't tell between different tunes & can't sing to a right note - so I've never sung anywhere except in Church during Mass :)

7). I love going to Church. For the first 17 years that I lived in Vietnam, I went every day, never missed one. Since coming to the U.S. 19 years ago, it's not possible for me to go to daily Mass anymore, but I have not yet missed a single Sunday Mass.

8). I'm really good at maintaining lifelong friendships. I still keep in touch with my 1st grade teacher, and my 10 bestest friends in the whole wide world are those I knew since kindergarten. Tha'ts more than 30 years ago!

9). I sleep on my tummy.

10). I have no sense of direction AT ALL. No matter how familiar a place is and how many times I've been there, if I get in one way, and get out a different way, I'll get lost! Shortcuts don't work for me.

11). I spent 12 months shopping for my wedding dress, checked every websites and went to every bridal stores from around California only to find & purchase my dream dress 5 days before my wedding day! *whew*. It's been 7 years and I still haven't seen any dresses I like better than my own! ;)

12). I don't like coffee, teas, any kind of soft drinks, or juices.. so just water for me, please?.

13). We had 450 guests at our wedding. Half was immediate family members. The other half was our friends.

14). I LOVE shoes!!! No shopping trip is deemed complete until I look at shoes!!

15). I'm really really good at math (and anything that requires logic) but suck at anything artistic.

16). I am very adventurous when it comes to food, and would dare to try anything edible, but I can't be without rice for long.

17). I love the color purple. About 3/4 of my clothes have some shade of purple in it!

18). I don't own an ipod or any video games.

19). I'm very honest. If you ask for my opinion about something, you'd better prepared to hear the truth.

20). I love my family. They're God's bestest blessings in my life.

21). My greatest dream right now is to be a mommy.

22). I hate wearing tennis shoes & socks. I don't own neither one.

23). I'm bugs-phobia (I don't know the correct word!)

24). I love Fridays.

25). When I was 13-month-old, I had a freak accident that almost cut four fingers of my right hand off. Thanks God the doctors were able to stiched them back on, and they did such a good job that if I don't tell you, you won't be able to tell.

26). I'm a hopeless romantic and dreamer. My husband is practical & down-to-earth. It can be frustrating at times, but we balance each other out.

27). My husband is my first and only love.

28). I can't whistle! :o

Great thread, I really enjoyed learning more about you! I actually first saw this on facebook, and thought it was a great idea!

I will have to think of some for me.... but right now I'm at school, and should be studying!:o LOL I'm addicted to Pet Talk!

1. I love web design/photoshop/illustrator

2. I'm in love with my boyfriend of two years, Mike, which I believe he is the one for me. I am all right brained and he is all left brained, and somehow we balance each other out. I don't know what I would do without him, he has been really the "guy" I have envisioned myself to be with. He challenges me every time. :)

3. I love country music.

4. I am graduating with a BA in Art from the Ohio State University on March 22, 2009.

5. My favorite artist of all time is Garth Brooks, and I dreamt of seeing him in concert since I was a young kid, and I was able to make it happen in November of 2007.

6. I am hearing impaired and I have a cochlear implant.

7. I am very easy going and laid back.

8. I worry too much, and I try to learn not to every day.

9. I am from Cleveland, Ohio, the birth of Rock & Roll.

10. I am a tomboy, I can dress up and look beautiful, but about 99% of the time, I prefer to be a tomboy and dress comfortably.


Makin' dinner, so I will keep thinking for the next 18! ;)

1. I am really particular about the fit and feel of my clothes but not how they look on me.
2. I tend to follow rules unless I see something wrong with the rule.

4. I drink at least 4 cans of pop a day.
5. I am absolutely TERRIBLE at telling faces apart. I always forget wether I know someone or not.

13. I used to read a lot but now that I have my laptop I don't really. :(
14. I used to dye my hair neon colors a lot but I can't now because of my job. It's ok though because I'd take working with horses over dying my hair any day.
15. I own a 1994 Jeep Cherokee that is currently miles away from me in Iowa on my dad's mini farm.
16. I was one year old the first time I was on a horse, a mounted policeman held me.
17. My father claims he and my mother were walking through a cemetery one day and they saw a tombstone with my name on it, and that is how they decided on my name. My mother vehemently claims I was named after Longfellow's poem and that my dad is making his story up or has remembered wrong.
18. I love Doctor Who but only the new ones from 2005 onward and I'm excited to see Matt Smith as the new Doctor. :D

25. I like bright and garish colors, if I cared about doing my makeup and hair, I'd look like a typical scene kid.
26. I like to pretend like I am from the UK even though I've never been there.
27. I like to hear other languages being spoken even though I'm not very good at learning new ones.
28. I would like to take a course on both dialects of Elvish, so that I could become fluent. Either that or in Latin. I like the idea because they are both not spoken, one being made up by Tolkien.

2. I love my camera more than I love most (MOST, keyword...) people. No lie.

3. I plan on having a ton of kids. For those of you that know/have seen my nephew, you know that I love him more than life itself. I want a LOT of kids. If I was financially stable and in a stable relationship, I would have kids now. I'm 20. I've had that mentality since I was 16.

4. I hope to pursue photography someday.

5. My family means a lot to me. Lots of kids nowadays don't like their families much, but I really do love my family; all of them. My grandparents are also pretty amazing... my family is the only thing keeping me from getting the heck out of Wisconsin.

6. I care too much about people. And the wrong people, too. I put my heart and soul into everything I do, and I care more about making other people happy than I do about making myself happy. There are a few people out there who I would do ANYTHING for, just to see them smile.

7. I'm addicted to doing surveys and posting them on myspace and facebook and such. I have TONS.

9. I have emetophobia.

10. I want to learn to speak and read Latin.

11. I follow no religion. I'm agnostic.

12. I am a virgin. Yes, I'm 20, and a virgin. My friends are all shocked when they find out. It's not that I'm begging to lose my virginity or I even CARE about losing it, I'm just waiting for the right person.

13. I have two tattoos. One is a bass clef and a treble clef in the shape of a heart on my left wrist. The other I got done last night. It's on my back and it says in Latin, "Dum spiro spero" which means "While I breathe, I hope". I plan on getting another one soon for Gavin.

17. I have really bad stage fright. Public speaking is my worst enemy.

18. I have big feet. Like... big. Size 11, anyone?

01-28-2009, 04:23 PM
1. I'm going to be a Mortician.

2. I can't wait to be out of college. It's hard to believe that I'm halfway done (and it's gone by so fast), yet the end still seems so far away.

3. I want to be done with college, but I don't think I'm ready for the 'real' world. I'm terrified of the future, and excited at the same time.

4. My family is very important to me. I couldn't wait to move out of their house, and now it seems the longer I live away from "home", the more I miss it.

5. What I really want is to be able to have my own place, my own family, my own dogs and my own life. I can not wait for that day.

6. I've recently become addicted to working out. My day just doesn't feel right unless I've hit the gym.

7. I hate being forced to do things. If itís my choice Iíll gladly do it, if Iím told I have to I wonítÖor Iíll complain the entire time.

8. I love to learn things relevant to my life. I don't really enjoy reading fiction and hate having to learn things for a class that I know I'll never ever ever use again. I wish the time could be spent learning something I'll need to know.

9. I didn't get a cell phone until I moved to college, and I never carry it anywhere. If people want to reach me, the call my boyfriend. (My parents actually put his number under my name, lol)

10. I really despise driving new places or in congested cities, especially alone. Usually I'll remember the cell phone, but since it's always neglected the battery often dies when I really need it.

11. I love taking pictures, especially of my dogs and scenery.

12. I listen to Cake on my Ipod every single day, all day long and it doesn't get old.

13. I'm not a night person, and I'm not a morning person. In fact, I'd sleep all day if I could.

14. I believe I'm bi-polar.

15. I tend to meet and make friends very easily, but can count the number of close, best friends I've had on one hand. It's a trust and self-confidence issue.

16. I hate typical college parties and don't understand that lifestyle. I'd much rather learn something during my college experience than kill brain cells.

17. I love watching Jon and Kate plus 8. It's one of the three shows I watch (Lost and Nip/Tuck). With the aid of the show (and "growing up", I guess) I have a strong desire to have children someday.

18. I LOVE Dance Dance Revolution. I'll play for hours at a time every day if I can.

19. I like to have a schedule and often feel lost without my planner.

20. I spend way too much time online. I blame PT. Before PT I didn't even know what a forum was. Now I'm an addict and was amazed there are forums for everything.

21. I fall asleep during movies.

22. I have a horrible, horrible memory.

23. In a group situation I'm more likely to observe and take everything in than jump into conversation.

24. I couldn't carry a tune to save my life.

25. I've never really been a girly girl. I love helping my dad on things in the garage (such as building derby cars) and I love anything that has to do with the outdoors (skiing, biking, camping, hiking, kayaking).

26. I'm very laid back and not too hard to please.

27. I'm not particular with what I wear.

28. I have a hard time managing my time wisely and get stressed when I have a lot of things that need to be done.

LIKE wtf? You think it's funny a living thing died because you're a dumba** who forgot to feed it. It annoys me when they laugh especially. Why did you even bother getting the pet if you didn't care about it? Then when they get all mad at me for pointing it out and they were like it's just a hamster bleh bleh bleh. It's still a living thing moron. It pisses me off till no end!!

11.) I work at a Six Flags amusement park and it's made me hate people.

01-29-2009, 05:15 AM
1. I've been a vegetarian for over four years now.

2. I love orange juice. I hardly drink anything else.

3. I am obsessed with college sports. My favorites are baseball and football.

4. I love names. When I hear a name I like, I will write it down and save it, for possible future use I guess. This includes names for both kids and pets.

5. I am quiet and observant by nature, but not shy.

6. I love college. As much as I hate assignments and tests, I love gaining knowledge and I love the traditions and student/fan pride that my university has. I will probably cry on graduation day, because I never want to leave.

7. I am double majoring, but I am still not sure what I want to do with my life. My problem is that I am interested in many different career paths. So many of them are so different, too, that I can't possibly combine them.

8. I am generally a very happy person... I try to find the good in every situation.

9. On that note: I am an optimist in every sense of the word. So much so that sometimes I block myself from seeing the bad in situations.

10. I have never tried any type of drug. I have no desire at all to see what any are like.

11. I am very into music and generally listen to certain songs based on what is going on in my life and what lyrics I can relate to at a certain time.

12. I would describe myself as being a generally independent person.

13. One of my biggest pet peeves is when people don't use the correct form of their/they're/there, your/you're, etc.

14. I hate hurting people's feelings, and avoid saying/doing anything to do so as best as possible.

15. I love to cook. I think that stems from being able to be creative and being able to make people happy through it.

16. I would love to move somewhere else once I graduate. I just want to see what other areas are about, since I've lived here my whole life and have barely traveled anywhere.

17. I hate Florida weather.

18. I am one of those who believes everything happens for a reason.

19. I have the utmost respect for the men and women who serve the United States of America.

20. I love math subjects, especially algebra. I consider it to be one of my strongest subjects.

21. I hate writing/english but that tends to be my best subject.

22. I strongly dislike reading books. I do not have the attention span for it.

23. I am constantly checking the weather. Right now it is 54* and raining.

24. I love cows. Always have.

25. I want to marry a good old fashioned southern boy. If anyone knows one who is single, please contact me. ha

26. I love to build and remodel things. I also love designing rooms.

27. I find a lot of satisfaction in doing things myself (which is I think why I enjoy DIY projects so much) and don't ask for help unless if I absolutely don't think I can do something on my own.

28. One thing that has been the same for me since I was little is that I have always wanted to live out in a remote city, with a small population, where everyone knows everyone and their secrets. I want to live on lots of acreage and have a small farm with chickens, cows, goats, horses and other animals, and I want my job to be taking care of it all. I want to raise a family there with a great husband. I want to have bonfires with the neighbors and sit out on our front porch talking all night. Probably cheesy, but that is the one of the only things I have ever really, truly wanted. If none of my other dreams for my future came true except for this one, I would consider myself to be very lucky.

01-29-2009, 03:02 PM

3. I try to eat only organic and natural foods...doesn't always work though.

7. I wait until my parents leave and smoke in the house.

8. I am obsessed with chicken decor.

21. My socks never match.

22. I love wwe wrestling.

23. I get very upset when my dog doesn't win in the show ring.

26. I cannot wait until I turn 21 this year. I want to get very drunk just once.

27.I don't like cartoons.

Well, this past summer I changed my air filter...for the first time in the three years I owned my car.

I just found out a couple weeks ago that getting your oil changed and checking your oil were two different things...I have never had my oil changed.

My Lincoln had air shocks instead of regular shocks. I popped both front and rear air shocks 8 times.

I don't have this poor Lincoln anymore. About a month ago I got a crack in my engine block and it's done for. I do have a new car. Paid $400 for it! It's a 1990 Chevy Lumina. I'm gonna do my best to take better care of this car.

Okay. Do you know how to check your oil? Check your transmission fluid? Check your air filter? Basics like that? With an older car, you should regularly check your oil, and all fluids.

I do now. My lincoln was a 93. It was older too. I am a lot better driver than I was, but sometimes things go wrong and I won't know what I did to cause it. I'm really going to do a better job with this car...I hope. I'll check in here when I need help next time.

Were you really? That's pretty interesting seeing as I'm in it now. I haven't been an officer though my 2 friends are, I'm only a sophmore so I'd be a Junior Officer though I don't know if other chapters do that, some only elect Seniors and Juniors as officers. I'll definitely try next year though, not Senior year, but at least next year because I missed the election this time around. :rolleyes: That's pretty cool that you were VP, though! I don't think I'd want to be that high up in the ranks.

1. I was born on my dad's birthday.
2. I have one cat, one horse, one bunny, 2 clownfish, and a shrimp.
3. I almost adopted a 3 legged pitbull from Dogs Deserve Better. The pup is an absolute DREAM ... except for cats. :( (And really, she might be able to be worked thru the issue -she wasn't that bad- but I have no experience with that type of thing. I still might consider adopting her if I had someone to help me with the issue.)
4. I bought my first house in November... and still haven't moved in, yet. (Getting closer, though.)
5. I'm scared of receiving my first electric bill.
6. I love buying makeup but don't wear very much at all.
7. I love, love, LOVE bath "stuff" (shower gels, bubble bath, etc) but can't use 99% of it due to my finicky skin.
8. I liken my horse to a storybook picturesque mare. She has such a wonderful temperment and will do anything you ask (except sidepass, which we're working on). I "dress" her in pink. I have pink glittery hoofpolish. Secretly, I wish she could fart sparkles.
9. Only today did I find out that 2x4 didn't mean, 2 foot by 4 foot. :o
10. I'm quite book smart but can be a total airhead when it comes to "real" stuff (see above).
11. I never thought I'd be happy in my home town, never thought I'd live in this small of a place but I'm happier now than I have been in YEARS.
12. I don't want children and I'm not sure if I want to be married.
13. I HATE to answer the phone; it is (quite literally) a bit of a phobia. This stems from a certain call I took/brief employment as a 911 dispatcher.
14. As a result of #13, I don't talk to my friends nearly enough. I prefer to txt or chat on the computer but work tends to get in the way.
15. As I approach 30, my bedtime gets earlier and earlier.
16. I don't like the smell of roses. They remind me of funerals.
17. I HATE to cook.
18. I don't mind baking.
19. I love to write and have been published in different literary journals. I even did a reading in college. I miss this.
20. My BA is in English (minors in rhetoric/technical communication and creative writing). My MA is in Technical Communication. I would like to have my MFA in poetry but, at this point in my life, I'm glad to be done with school.
21. I'm allergic to most dairy but cheese doesn't bother me. Milk tastes sour and gives me migraines.
22. I used to love winter. Now, not so much.
23. I can't drive a manual even though I've repetedly tried. I did however sit (I wouldn't say drove - I don't think we ever had to shift I went so slow) on Xradeu's Dad's tractor, which was a manual.
24. I don't like bears, even teddy bears.
25. I don't really love my job but I have it too easy (decent pay, good hours, easy work, security) to go anywhere else.
26. I love tea. I prefer it over coffee, soda, or water. If cold, I want it unsweetened. If hot, it has to be sweetened.
27. There are certain words I hate, they just SOUND ugly. Boogy, for example.
28. I don't really like the way meat tastes and definitely won't eat it in any form of leftovers (chicken being the exception). I prefer veggies.

16. I hate the texture of bananas
17. I love little random things, for example I have a glow in the dark plastic sheep in my room, and a face (I think its meant to be a frog) with grass growing out of the top
18. A few weeks back we took cuttings from plants in science, and my friend and I named our cutting/plant Geri Junior and we played it music, read stories to it, and we begged our teacher to let us take it round school so it could get an education, needless to say we got some very strange looks...

Were you really? That's pretty interesting seeing as I'm in it now. I haven't been an officer though my 2 friends are, I'm only a sophmore so I'd be a Junior Officer though I don't know if other chapters do that, some only elect Seniors and Juniors as officers. I'll definitely try next year though, not Senior year, but at least next year because I missed the election this time around. :rolleyes: That's pretty cool that you were VP, though! I don't think I'd want to be that high up in the ranks.

yupper we didn't do JR officers. we were such a small chapter at that time that we had to include Jrs and Srs as officers. I was reporter my Jr Year and Vice Pres my Sr year. I LOVED FFA.

01-31-2009, 12:39 PM

These are fun to read!

Here's mine.

1. I just ate a big bowl of mint chocolate chip ice cream. I'd have more, but I'm too lazy to get up right now.

2. I love to travel. My husband and I are hoping to teach and live abroad someday.

3. I play the piano and want to learn the violin.

4. My husband has a very pretty shade of red hair that I hope our child inherits.

5. I have been a vegetarian for over 12 years.

6. I was recently put on modified bedrest because of a pregnancy complication. :( That means I have to pretty much lay on my side most of the day and drink tons of water. Thank goodness for my laptop!

7. I might go on for a PhD or an EdD when I am done with my masters but I haven't decided yet.

8. I love love love eating sweets. I wish I didn't.

9. I love to read but I often have a difficult time finding books I like. If I like an author, I can read through their entire collection in under a week or two, but then I'm left without anything to read again.

10. I don't really like cooking but luckily my husband does. He is making stir fry right now. :)

11. I do like baking though but I don't very often because I always eat way too much of it.

12. I have never been able to keep my room tidy. I'm naturally a lazy housekeeper, but the rest of the house is usually pretty clean- just not the bedroom.

13. I like listening to ambient music.

14. I kind of hate Valentine's Day, although I do like the chocolate.

15. Thinking of so many things is harder than I thought, but it is a nice distraction.

16. I love going second-hand shopping for just about anything.

22. Our house is the same age as me.

23. I've broken two bones in my life- my little toe and the one next to it. I broke my little toe by dropping a big ceramic pan of lasagna on it, and I think I broke the other one by stubbing my toes, but I don't remember.

24. I never answer the home phone because we don't have caller ID. I always let the machine get it- anyone who I really want to talk to calls my cell phone anyway.

25. I seem to get jury summons every year or two.

26. I love going out to eat. I spend way too much on it. I especially like Indian and Italian food.

27. I still don't like raw tomatoes- they made me gag as a child and my dad never believed me!

Zippy, that has got to be the best quote I've read in a very long time!

01-31-2009, 10:26 PM
Staci and Alyssa, I had never heard of FFA, but I was in 4-H.

Bird phobias... yeah... they freak me the heck out!!

FFA is sort of similar. Apparently they changed the name Future farmers of America to National FFA organization because agriculture has expanded much more now then it was when it was created. Aw come on Jenn, birds aren't all bad ;D I have the cutest little budgie in the entire world although sometimes I swear she's evil. :p

Cool thread!

1. I've lived in the same house for all of my 17 years of life.

2. As a baby, I screamed and cried and wailed. A lot. :p My brother, on the other hand, was a very quiet baby. What's weird is we seem to have reversed roles; I am now far more placid than him and he has one fiery temper!

3. I've wanted to become a veterinary surgeon ever since I was about 3 years old. Before that, I was intent on becoming a ballerina.

4. Good job though that I decided against the latter (above), because I think I've finally reached my peak in height at 6 foot exactly. :eek: I would have been one lanky ballerina, haha.

5. I have my own DNA in a vial. Seriously. I extracted it myself. :p Although now it's quite hard to see as its wound back up into coils again, but it's there. Why do I have it in a vial? Haha, I seriously don't know. But it's cool to have. :D

6. I am currently reading Darwin's Origin of Species.

7. I am the only girl in my year at school (well, in my school actually, for the moment anyway) to study further mathematics at A level.

8. I can't wink with my left eye. I had to train myself to wink the right, but there's no hope with the left. It's a peculiar trait I've inherited from my dad's side of the family. My mum and brother wink just fine.

9. I am a vain money guzzler! I calculated that last year I spent about £5500 on clothes, accesories, shoes, perfumes, make-up, my hair and jewellry. It's awful, I know, and my 2009 resolution is to cut down on that considerably.

10. I hate camping with a passion. I need my little luxuries otherwise I get incredibly groggy and snappy.

11. I have keratoconus in both eyes, but mainly in my left. It's manageable for me at the moment and I barely notice it, but it will gradually worsen throughout my life and I could get to the stage of needing a corneal transplant.

12. I am generally a pleasant person to people although I'm not much of a socialiser. I prefer to have a few, select friends whom I can truly trust than lots of people I can't.

13. The only body part I have ever broken is the little finger on my right hand, and it's still a bit crooked.

14. < My lucky number! :p

15. I love debating. It's something I've only really gotten into over the past few months. Once I get into argue-mode there's no going back! :D

16. I've had the same mobile phone for about 5 years. It's not that it's amazing or that I can't afford a new one, it's just I'm not particularly a gadget person and would rather spend the money on something else.

17. I cannot STAND people who eat noisily. It just irks me to the core.

18. I know I'm only young and things change as you age, but I can't see myself ever having kids. It's just not me.

19. I do not have a photographic memory whatsoever, which sometimes surprises people. I can only truly get things into my brain by writing them down over and over again. It's very tiresome, but for some reason I just can't really learn information any other way!

20. My middle name, Vivienne, is that of my aunt, who passed away from leukaemia before I was born. All the other girls born on my dad's side of the family also have Vivienne as their middle name.

21. I take my coffee black with one sugar.

22. I'm generally terrible at winter sports! I'm like Bambi when on ice and I can only go so far as turning parrallel in big, wide loops when skiing.

23. Riding is my passion, particularly dressage, and I've been riding for 13 years.

24. I don't cry; very, very rarely at least. Yeah, I get sad, but I'd be more likely to be incredibly quiet for a while rather than burst into tears.

25. I hate the idea of failure. I'm really competitive and once I get into something, I have to win! :p

26. The bodypart I hate most on myself is my teeth. Otherwise I am generally happy with how I look.

27. I could eat olives for the rest of my life, haha. I absolutely looooooove them!

28. I study Latin, and it rocks. :D Lately I've found it particularly helpful in my scientific subjects. If you know Latin, there'll rarely be a word that you encounter that you can't figure out the meaning by it's Latin roots.

02-01-2009, 02:30 PM
Ellie, you are awesome and I wish we could hang out IRL. I am an obsessive fan of M*A*S*H and I bought the first season on dvd today!

Lol same, let me know if you ever come to England ;)

Now you can watch M*A*S*H whenever you want lol, and not just when the tv channels allow you too.... yay for DVDs. (We have the DVDs- I dont usually watch it on tv because the laughter track kind of annoys me). I even made a M*A*S*H poster for my room, and I have a M*A*S*H t-shirt :D

1. I play this game (http://www.addictinggames.com/bubbles) more hours a day than I care to share.
2. I am just coming off of being sick but I still had to do my job anyway because the horses needed to be taken care of.
3. I've drawn three rainbow daleks in the last four days.
4. My mom just sent me a package from home with my favorite sweatshirt, my ipod speaker, two dvds of mine, my show gloves, and a surprise box of strawberry koala cookies.
5. Every time I watch any episode of Doctor Who after the second season I just miss Rose too much to really get into it.
6. Today I have decided that the dog I want in the future is a pit bull/ catahoula cross.
7. I really want a subscription to my DeviantArt so I can post polls and make my journal there pretty and display stamps.
8. One of the girls at the barn got to see Toby Keith this weekend and I'm really jealous.
9. I thought I would really like the cookie dough flavour of Poptarts but I don't really like them.
10. I admit to liking really tacky music.
11. Today one of the boarders brought his rottie along while he did chores.
12. I start reading a LOT of books but rarely ever finish them.
13. Recently I have started but not finished New Moon (for the third reading) Deathly Hallows (for the second reading) Lord of the Rings (only ever listened to the audiobook) a Buffy novel about Spike and Drusilla, and I am now reading Shakespeare's The Tempest. I picked it up at random because Tempest is one of my favorite songs.
14. My hair was half pink and half orange in November but I wanted a good job so I dyed it brown and I did such a good job finding a colour that you can barely see where my roots start and the dye ends.
15. I find it hard to listen to audiobooks unless the narrator is a British or Scottish man.
16. Humanities Through The Arts was my all time favourite class.
17. I grew up in a suburb of Chicago, and my high school was on national television for hazing two years before I started there.

22. I have four t-shirts that have a saying or logo for Firefly/Serenity on them, and one with the cast of Angel.
23. I didn't like music until I found the country music station. Now I love listening to new music. For years I would only listen to country and classical though.
24. Apparently I confuse a lot of people.
25. I change my mind a LOT.
26. Ever since I was little I wanted a pickup truck.
27. I am late almost everywhere I go, even if I allow myself extra time I always get sidetracked by something.
28. I tend to be obsessive over certain things. I watch or read or listen to something over and over and over until I become sick of it for a few months, then I usually pick it back up.

02-05-2009, 09:09 PM
Suki-Wingy, I always used to think I wanted a pick-up, but now that I know what a pain it'd be to park one in the city I live in, I am happy with my CRV! :) I definitely think vehicle choice depends a lot on where and when you drive it!

I hadn't tried the cookie-dough Pop-tarts, now I'm glad I didn't bother! :)

Gee Puckstop, I must say that I'm impressed. Seriously!!! Some things you have posted in your list lead me to believe you might be human and have feelings afterall. I knew there had to be some good hidden in there somewhere. Congratulations kid. :D

LOL Thanks. I think. :)

Talking Politics rarely makes friends. LOL I mean, while politics is the 2nd oldest profession, it bears a striking resemblance to the first, ya know? LOL

Also remember that I like to "discuss" that stuff here because most of the people here do NOT agree with me and I like that. I seek out differing opinions, not only to possibly change some minds, but to possibly have mine changed too. Preaching to the choir is no fun and nobody learns anything new, eh?

A sneek peek...

#1 - "Show me your friends and I will show you your future."

Some people here disagree with this. But I believe, especially for young people, that who we associate with not only says a lot about who we are, but effects who we will be. Even if you are squeaky clean, when you associate with people who are not... It gets you dirty too.

#12 - "You can tell a great deal about a person from how they treat people who serve them."

How do you treat the people who serve you at McDonalds? A grocery store?

Etc.... It is a work in progress and will take me years to finish. Mainly because as I age, I am certain I will become more wise and will want to change some of the things for it. Values should never change, opinions can.

If they're all this wise, then she'll have a book to treasure her whole life thru. Hopefully she'll thank her Dad for the time and love that he put in to it, even if she doesn't agree with everything he says! :p (Do they ever?) :rolleyes:

02-07-2009, 11:13 PM
1. K'Cee is on my lap. I am typing in an extremely uncomfortable position to avoid disturbing her. Often, I will put off getting up/doing something so I don't disturb her. I refer to this as "purring the cat." (IE "I can't do that right now, K'Cee needs purred.")

2. I hide new bags of catfood from K'Cee. If she spies a new bag, she will quit eating from the old bag. I have tried to buffalo her and it doesn't work; I give in within 1/2 day. (The "old" secretly gets mixed into the new... when she's not looking, of course.)

3. I have fractured my left foot twice, my right wrist once. I think I've fractured my left elbow and wrist but I never told my mom; I was doing something I wasn't supposed to. I have sprained my right wrist and my left ankle. I had (have?) a condition where the muscles in my legs are stronger than the bones and it causes a strain on the bones. None of the fractures or sprains are due to that condition, though.

4. I am a rule follower but my one ticket has been for "disobeying a police officer." (It was night, he was in a dark uniform. I didn't see him.)

5. I'm not scared of the dark. I'm scared of things IN the dark. Namely, skunks.

6. I once let a gopher in the house on accident.

7. I once gave somebody the "up your's!" sign on accident. (You know the one where you have one arm bent in front of you then make/raise a fist with your other?) I was walking with a friend; we were discussing having blood drawn. I was motioning with my hands when a stranger pulled his truck around the corner and we locked eyes.

8. I wanted to name my first dog Koolaide.

9. I hate lipstick, mushrooms, pickles from restuarants, and the word utilize.

10. It drives me NUTS when people use the word "irregardless." Just say "regardless" or "irrespective." (Actually, I don't think "irregardless" is even a word, is it?)

11. I have one tattoo. It's on my toe.

12. I was born in a Catholic hospital, raised Methodist, but now go to a Baptist church.

13. I have hitchhiked, once. My cousin and I were determined to go out of town despite the bad weather and despite our parents' "You're silly for traveling in this weather. Your grown, we can't stop you from going, but don't call us if you wreck!" About 30min from our destination, I hit a patch of black ice. The car spun, landed in a ditch, and flattened a tire. We hitchhiked to a gas station (maybe 15min away) and waited for help. I ended up dating the guy that changed my tire/drug my car out of the ditch. My cousin and I never did call/tell our parents; they found out about it 2yrs later.

14. I have a HUGE sweet tooth!

15. I've rode an Olympic jumper (see possible wrist/elbow fracture in #3) and a calvary horse. (The jumper was SEVERELY barn sour -- someone left the arena gate open. *buck, buck* I bit the dirt and horsey went to his stall.)

16. I'm having a hard time with this set. I'm not that interesting!

Ok, I'm "pausing" for now. If I can think of some more stuff, I'll post it. :)

02-07-2009, 11:14 PM

4. I love my Jetta, but its sick right now and I don’t know whats wrong with it. :(

8. My face turns red when attention is directed on me.
9. I wear the same jewelry every day. Earrings, bracelet, one ring on my thumb and a necklace.
10. I only wear eyeliner and mascara.
11. I can’t live without Vaseline lip therapy on my lips.
12. I’m not fond of my father.
13. I can’t imagine life without my mother.
14. My niece is 18 years old today!!!
15. I have been with my boyfriend for almost 6 years.
16. Hey Ashley! I wanted to get married on July 7th, 2007. But it didn’t happen. :p
17. Even though I have “fake” nails I still bite them if one breaks off.
18. My parents owned a dry cleaners all my life, up until last July.
19. My eyes change color depending on what I’m wearing.
20. My head hurts too bad right now to finish this list. :(

14. I've carried the same purse for almost 10 years. Is this bizarre or what?
15. New York City is probably my favorite place to visit.
16. I never go to the Orlando theme parks. Living here most of my life, I've been to Epcot once, Disneyworld once, and, Universal 3 times. I think these places are great but not for me. I also think they're way too expensive.
17. I love wearing jewelry.

02-08-2009, 12:49 AM
I love all living things including spiders, snakes and other creepy crawlies. I'm not afraid to pick up spiders and carry them outside.
I hate liver and onions.
I can't watch nature shows. Even though it's the "nature of the beast" I can't stand watching animals getting killed for food.
I absolutely hate guns and hunting.
I've never broken any bones
I love Christmas and what it stands for. I'm the first person in my building to put up lights and the last to take them down.
I hate clutter. I'm very tidy, but certainly not a neat freak.
Although I love surprises, I'm also a big planner. For any event, I simply must have a written plan and follow through.
I play the piano by ear. I did take piano lessons when I was a child but had a hard time reading the music. I still can't read musical notes.

When I was young I wanted to be an Airline Stewardess (that's what they were called in the 70s). In my teens, I wanted to be a Vet but somehow I ended up in the IT world.
When I was a child, I asked my Dad if we could move to a ranch with horses, cows, chickens and other animals. I never got my wish. :(
I have a collection of stuffed animals.
I've only had one serious relationship. It lasted 13 years and ended in 1987 when I caught him sleeping with my x-friend.
In the early 80s, I did volunteer work at my local zoo and helped to force feed a snake that was ill. The snake lived. :)
In 2001 I went on a cattle drive. Six days on horseback.....:eek: Can you say Ouch???

02-08-2009, 01:22 AM
for me! :)

1. I talk to my parents everyday. Usually both of them more than once. On days when they are at their cottage and the cell service doesn't go thru it just doesn't feel right.

2. I was supposed to be born in the middle of December but I came 2 months early. I was born Oct 20th. I weighed 4 pounds. One of my aunts (married to my mom's brother when I was about 6-7) told my mom in front of me when I was about 8-10 that there was no way I was a premie b/c I was too fat now. Thank God neither of her children have weight issues.

3. I love most animals but have a phobia of little critters. When my friends kids want me to hold their guinea pig or hamster it almost sends me into a full blown panic attack. I can't stand the little feet on me. Didn't help when in 2007 after I had foot surgery I woke up in my parents house with a mouse crawling down my arm.

4. I have been a member of a PET TALK since 2000. I have met several members and consider them dear friends. I have also traveled to Los Angeles CA twice due to that forum. And I was in a wedding for an online friend and I met her the day she picked me up from the train 2 days before the wedding.

5. I have lost at least 3-4 dear friends simply b/c their boyfriend turned husband didn't like me. B/c I was the single friend and I wouldn't put up with their sh!t like they did.

6. I have a tendency to be extremely blunt but I hate confrontation.

7. I'm a small town girl at heart, born and raised country girl, but I'd love to live in the Big City like NYC for 6 months just to be able to order sushi at 3am if I wanted to. Then send me back to the small town. I hate driving in big cities.

8. I've only had one boyfriend in my life, when I was a freshman in HS. He was a bad boy of all bad boys. A couple years ago I opened up the local paper and saw his picture in it and was like "now what" then I realized it was the obituries. He had had a heart condition and all the hard living caught up with him.

9. When I was about the age of 8-9 I ate a Texas Tenderloin and got the flu and threw up for days and have not been able to eat one since then.

10. When I was in Jr. Hi I babysat my cousin's and fixed them Totino's Pizza Rolls and that night I got the flu and threw THEM up and can't even stand the smell of them since then.

11. As mentioned in Round 1, I can drive a Stick shift- I've driven a Tractor and a semi. It was just backing it down the driveway but I did it!

12. Before FFA I was in 4-H, and showed sheep at the county fair from the ages 9-18. My Sr. Yr I was Hardin County (Ohio) Lamb and Wool Queen.

13. My dad has one of their friends convinced that I would give him an enema anytime I was around him, so one day I brought home an enema tip from work, put it in an envelope and anonymously sent it to him with the instructions, instert into rectum and blow it up. Any questions call 1-800-ENEMA. :eek:

14. I have one older sister. My sister and I are exactly 5 years, 11 months and 1 day apart.

15. My mom has one sister and 2 brothers. All the kids EXCEPT my mom had their boys first and there is about 2-4 years b/n the boy and the girl. My mom is the odd ball out having 2 girls 6 Years apart!

16. I will eat almost any fruit except Muskmelon (cantaloup) or honeydew. I had a great aunt that had breast cancer and can remember my other great aunt saying when she threw up with the chemo it smelled like Muskmelon. I never smelled it but I never ate it before and I refused to eat it since then.

17. My dad is an only child. My grandma had 3 siblings only 6 & 8 (set of twins) years older than my dad. So growing up HIS aunts were MY aunts b/c I spent so much time with my grandma and with them.

18. I was never much of a cat person until I got a dog, my greyhound. She unlocked the passion in me that had been hidden. Loving animals is in my blood. My dad's mom used to bottle feed all kinds of baby pigs and lambs.

19. When I moved out and went to get a dog at the local shelter, I went in mind I was going to get a small scruffy looking dog similiar to Benji. lol I came home with a greyhound. :confused: but she was my :love:

20. I love makeup and good smelling girlie things. I have the ultimate girlie bathroom.

21. I have a slight phobia of petting other people's cats unless I know where they came from. If they are a stray or a barn cat, I might pet them but I can't stand the dirty fur. And I'm afraid that the cat will be sick and I will bring it home to my cats.

22. I can't throw or hit a ball to hit the broad side of the barn with the wind behind me, but 2 years ago I took Keegan to the park to throw the tennis ball, I got out the tennis ball launcher and threw the ball and it hit the side mirror on my car and broke it. I just stood there like an idiot with my mouth hanging open b/c I couldn't believe I actually HIT the mirror. Talk about a Needle in the haystack!

23. I had orthoscopic knee surgeries when I was 15 years old. One month they went in a scoped both knees and removed cartilage marbles and scraped out more arthritis than the average 65 year old. The next month they went in and did the other one. The Orthopedic surgeon had never seen that much arthritis in someone so young.

24. I have a sock phobia. I can not stand wet socks. Nor can I stand having anything in my shoe. Sock fuzzies are the bane of my existence. One of my friends says that I have Princess and the Pea feet.

25. When I was about 2 years old we were riding in the semi with my dad, my mom in the front and my sister and I in the bunk. My dad was driving up I-75 and felt a slight pressure change in the truck. He glanced in the side mirror and saw that the door to the bunk was open. He told my mom to hold the wheel and she started to ask why but he launched himself into the bunk grabbed me by the back of the shirt and yanked me back in the truck. I was sitting there with my feet hanging over watching the road go by. My mom started to get hysterical and my sister got in trouble for not watching me! As soon as he got home, he welded the bunk doors shut.

26. I was a sophomore in HS, I went White Water Rafting with the FFA. At a certain part of the river there was a rock we were supposed to jump off of, I refused to do it b/c I wear contacts, and another kid didn't do it either. They told us anyone that does NOT jump off the rock, falls in. We still didn't jump off. I fell out in the middle of a class 5 rapid and really thought I was going to die. Lost my shoe! and the other kid fell out as well. I refuse to WWR after that!

27. I love doing dog/pet related activities. They are a joy to me especially if I get to go with my dog loving friends and take my dog with me.

28. Adding more to my original 28 things has been on my mind since I did it the first time but since starting this list, my mind went blank and it was a lot harder than I thought! :) :D

I've been married for 23 years.

I like to scrapbook but never seem to have the time to do it.

I have one brother who is 8 years younger than me.

I had twin sisters, but they both died at a very young age.

I love to listen to my music loud (you can't listen to bands like Disturbed, Godsmack and Slipknot quietly!)

I no longer have a thyroid and take medication to maintain it.

My parents have been married to each other for 45 years.

I have 4 dogs.

I don't mind to cook, but I despise doing dishes.

I feel more connected to animals than people.

I'm a server at Red Lobster and have been for over 13 years. I love my job, but hate my boss (strong word, but it's true).

I'm into reality shows of any kind, but I think Survivor is my all time favorite (it starts this coming Thursday!)

I watch VH1's Rock of Love Bus:o

I wanted to be an airline stewardess or a vet when I was a kid.

I have a room full of exercise equipment but rarely use it.

I'm still amazed that I have friends that I met online. I never in my wildest dreams thought that would happen...lol.

I watched my first NASCAR race of the season last night! Can't wait till next week for the Daytona 500!

I've been to 4 NASCAR races (Bristol, Charlotte, Michigan & Arizona)

I'm 43 and can't believe how old I am already:eek:

We have no children because I'm not able to.

I started going through menopause in my early 20's.

I'm thrilled that we have new windows for our house.

I hate that the snow melted so fast. Now we have swimming puddles in our yard.

We've owned a camper for almost 3 years and only camped in it once.

I hate when the yard is muddy and I have 16 dirty paws to clean.

I wish I liked vegetable more than I do.

I could eat ice cream for breakfast, lunch and dinner!

I have hazel eyes.

6. We payed cash for the first house we bought, also at 18

7. I have a phobia of talking on the phone.

8. I managed a really awesome pet boarding facility for just under 6 years. I loved every minute.

9. I also used to do both pet and wildlife rescue. I gave that up when my son was born, but I plan to go back to it when he's a little older.

10. I want more than anything to have another baby.

11. My son has ectopic pupils and his eye doctor believes he may have albinism

12. I love to cook. I'm not too great at it, but I'm not bad at it either.

13. I love photography and wish I had more time (and money) to invest into it.

14. I've wanted chickens nearly my whole life. I was hoping to get some this year, but my husband, my father-in-law, and my dad are planning to build me my dream chicken coop this year so I'm putting off getting chickens until next year.

15. Our UPS delivery man knows way too much about us. He always seems to get into a conversation about our reptiles with my husband.

16. My eyes have been really bothering me lately. I need to go to the eye doctor, but my phobia of phones (see #7) has kept me from making an appointment. My husband will probably end up making an appointment for me.

17. I also have a phobia of doctors, any kind. (Another thing keeping me from making the appointment in #16)

18. I love coffee. I drink decaf most of the time as I don't like the way caffeine makes me feel. I usually have a cup in the morning and another in the afternoon.

19. Other than coffee I normally only drink water and milk

20. I hope to one day have goats

21. I've been getting riding lessons from one of the girls who boards her horses here.

22. My son loves horses more than anything and I expect he'll show an interest in riding when he's a little older

23. I HATE to travel.

24. I much prefer cold weather to hot, not a good thing when living in Florida.

25. I have loved birds since I was a little girl. I love watching wild birds outside and I love my pet birds too.

26. We have a few bald eagles around here and see at least one almost daily. They like to land in our field.

27. I lived in western NY until I was 13, then my family moved to FL, I've lived here ever since.

28. My favorite food is salmon

02-09-2009, 05:07 PM
So interesting - and a very diversified group indeed. And I'm so glad to see that I'm not the only medical disaster here. Hope all of you are doing as well as I've managed to do for almost a year now! :D I'm disproving my brother when he says I'm a disaster waiting to happen!! :eek:

Continued good health to all..........

I just finished the book "kite runner" I was so into in I put it in the middle of a technical manual at work and acted like I was busy, I finished it in two days.

I took "Kite Runner" on a business trip with me and read it twice before I got home. Check out his second book - "A Thousand Spendid Suns"

I think you will be an excellent vet tech! :)

Thanks Karen!!!

02-09-2009, 08:33 PM
Here’s round 2 …

1. I love Nutella on warm croissants.

2. My first dog was a Pekinese named Monday.

3. Add me to the list of people who LOVE the cold weather yet live in Florida.

4. I am the only one in a very large family that doesn’t smoke cigarettes.

5. I like to walk barefoot, even when it’s cold.

6. My first summer job was being a gate guard for a gated community. A little boring but relaxing. I didn’t have to do much. I’d bring my RB Dee Dee in the little gate box and read books all day while saying hello to people.

7. The first book I read by myself when I was 4 or 5 was Dr. Seuss’s: One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish.

8. I dislike blueberries.

9. I got the mumps and chicken pox as a child within 10 days of each other. Longest sick leave from school ever!

10. As a child I was awesome on the balance beam. My teachers wanted me to try out for the Olympic team.

11. I like reading books by Dean Koontz.

12. One of my favorite bands is Nickelback.

13. I think Wentworth Miller is HOT.

14. My favorite fragrances are J’Adore, Eau D’Issey and Mariella Burani.

15. I used to collect key chains and had thousands of them but I got tired of them and eventually gave them away here and there to whoever wanted them.

16. I love anything Boston Terrier and am currently looking for Boston Terrier baby bedding or nursery dťcor but cannot find any.

17. I hate milk… even chocolate milk. The smell makes me gag.

18. My favorite kind of jewelry (and I don’t have much) are gold earrings.

19. I prefer the company of my dogs to most people.

20. I thought I’d never like owning a male dog…. until Frankie came along.

21. I love black licorice… the bitter kind. The more bitter, the better!

22. I prefer sitting by a pool then going to the beach.

23. My dog Beenie thinks she’s a cat sometimes. She purrs when you pet her. I really have to catch it on video one of these days.

24. I’ve always wanted to open an animal rescue.

25. I’m not very good at math.

26. I prefer vegetables to fruit.

LOL LOL LOL Thanks David :)

02-09-2009, 10:21 PM
Here goes....I did this for Facebook, too, and it took longer than I thought it would!

1. I’m the youngest of three girls. All of our names begin with the letter S. For the longest time, I thought my name was Susansandyshannon……..

2. I don’t wear jewelry because I have a terrible nickel allergy. Even supposedly gold earrings break my ears out, and it hurts a lot!!!

3. I don’t like to wear dresses because I’m not really girly girly. Panty hose were invented by the devil himself.

4. Bridges and high overpasses terrify me….especially high bridges over water. Even though tunnels don’t bother me, I don’t think I could go through an underwater tunnel either.

5. I teach at the same elementary school I attended. When I went to Caldwell, it was first through sixth grade…no kindergarten.

6. Even though I didn’t go there, I love all OU sports, especially football and basketball….men and women’s.

7. I have a bachelor’s degree in Library Science and a master’s in Elementary Education. The thought of going to school now really gives me the heebie jeebies………glad I’m done.

8. I love, love, love dogs, and I have two great ones…Cassie, my 14 Ĺ year old Dalmatian and Boomer, my year old English Springer Spaniel. I guess I must have a thing for black and white dogs. HA

9. Snakes absolutely, positively scare the beejeebers out of me!! My nephew has one, and I don’t know how my sister sleeps in the same house.

10. I have been in a football stadium when a bomb when off right outside. Some guy tried to take a backpack with a bomb in it into Memorial Stadium at OU. We heard the explosion, and everyone around us was speculating about what it could be, but I think everyone was thinking bomb…..especially those who live in the Oklahoma City area, but no one wanted to actually say those words. The guy couldn’t get in with the backpack so he went and sat on a bench outside the stadium to figure out what to do next, I guess, and the bomb went off……..poor bus driver sitting in a bus saw it all.

11. While in an airplane, we almost had a midair collision when the traffic controller sent a small plane in our path….pilot had to like brake in midair! I looked at Mike, and when I saw the concern on his face, I knew something bad had happened. The pilot came on and explained what had happened. Pretty freaky!!

12.I once scratched my cornea while wearing a construction paper bird beak. The teachers were acting out the Twelve Days of Christmas, and my group were the six geese a laying. I was acting silly, “pecking” at a coworker who was afraid of birds. I guess the beak slipped up and got me in the eye. It was one of the worse pains I’ve ever experienced. I went to an afterhours clinic, and the doctor acted like he had heard that same story a dozen times that day. I had to wear a patch for 24 hours, and my lovely husband would only talk pirate to me! HA

13. I’m related to Davy Crockett and Abe Lincoln. Our family all came from the Tennessee/Kentucky area. We always knew we were kin to Uncle Davy, but my sister delved deeper into our family tree, and found that we were also related to Abe.

14. I have a “fear”, for lack of a better word, of down escalators. My mom and I were in a Boston mall once, and the down escalator was going so fast and was at such a steep slope, neither one of us could get on. I haven’t liked them since. I will almost always find an elevator. Up escalators don’t bother me.

15. I’ve never had any broken bones that I know of….I think I may have broken the toe next to the little one when I tripped over a big rock. I cut my foot pretty badly when I was 8…..that was about it as far as injuries go.

16. I’ve traveled to 9 countries and 37 states. I went to Europe before I was married, and my parents and I used to go on these long road trips. I’ve also gone to quite a few states with Mike and the kids, following OU football.

17. I’ve never smoked a cigarette, even as a kid. My mom used to smoke so I had access to them…..just never, ever appealed to me.

18. Old classic television shows are my favorites…The Andy Griffith Show, The Beverly Hillbillies, The Dick Van Dyke Show……the best TV. If they ever take TV Land off, I’ll be lost! HA

19. At my parents’ 60th wedding anniversary celebration, my sister made me laugh so hard, I….I…..yes, I wet my pants!!! Luckily, it was at my house, and I was able to slip down the hall to change before everyone knew….There I’ve said it!!!

20. I am a Christian but I know I’m not as good of one as God would want. I pray every day to be a better person than the day before.

21. I don’t know how to drive a car with a stick. I’ve lived 47 years without knowing, so I really don’t see the point in learning now.

22. I am NOT adventuresome when it comes to trying new things such as food……If it isn’t something I’m familiar with, I won’t eat it….just like a little kid, I guess, but again, I’m 47 years old, and I don’t have to eat anything I don’t want to!!

23. I was a Cub Scout leader for 4 years for my two nephews’ den. It was fun, but I didn’t want to do it again. I stayed up all night at a lock in with what seemed like hundreds of 7,8, and 9 year old boys....never again!

24. I’m a librarian, but I really don’t read that much. I’m busy with the kids and the husband, the job, the house, the dogs, etc.so I really don’t do much reading. My dad and my older sister read two or three books a week probably.

25. I’ve lived in the same city all of my life. I never had to experience changing schools or making new friends.

26. I met Mike on a blind date. He had hired the daughter of one of my coworkers, and they hooked us up. We were engaged after 3 weeks. When you are in your 30’s, I guess you just know if you have found the right person.

27. I used to always tease my mom about the many different hairstyles and hair colors….well, I realized I can’t talk much! HA

28. I don’t like confrontation at all! I can tell people off really well while I’m in the car or the shower, but I don’t like actual confrontation. I guess that is why I don’t talk about controversial topics unless I know the person I’m speaking with is of the same opinion as me.

02-09-2009, 10:21 PM
I took "Kite Runner" on a business trip with me and read it twice before I got home. Check out his second book - "A Thousand Spendid Suns"

I plan on getting it this week, is it as good as Kite runner?

The ending is a little contrived but up until then it is gripping and hard to put down. What I particularly enjoyed is it is about the relationship between two women this time.

But be prepared to get very angry along the way!

Carmen, here's a link to a site that has Boston fabric. I'm not sure how it works. They have the fabric for sale but do they make things for you too?

Pembroke Corgi: They have all breeds. I don't see wallpaper unfortunately.

02-10-2009, 03:08 PM
A good way to pass the time while my son is napping...

1. My name is Cassandra, but when I was younger they called me Cassie. My brother thought it was halarious to call me Lassie, so he would whistle at me all the time. About 4 years ago, my mother sent me a beanie baby in the mail. Yep! It was a collie dog, and it's name was Cassie! Seriously?!!! LOL!:D Out of all the names they could have picked, haha. They now call me Cass.

2. I work at Banfield Pet Hospital in Eugene, Oregon. I have been there 4 years in May. I don't think I'll ever leave...

3. I've decided to name all my future pets Mobster names if they are male.

4. My dream bird is a white fronted Amazon. A parrot landed on my bf's windshield about 3 seconds after my birthday last Dec. I heard a noise and turned around, and was like, "OMG. It's a parrot!" haha. I grabbed it like the dork that I am. Could have gotten bit! How random is that. Bird lands on windshield just after birthday. Anyway, I had him for a few days until we located the owners. But during that short period of time I fell in love with him. I was really disappointed when I had to return him. Especially after seeing his small cage, and finding out the reason he got lost. They let him out on their outside porch, wings unclipped. Stupid people. I miss him. :(

5. My boyfriend has Leukemia. He is one of the strongest people I have ever met, and my best friend! I would be lost without him. He has one more round of Chemo and then he'll be done! :D

6. I have Lupus. I just found out so I am still learning about the disease. Today has been a good day. Pretty much pain free except a little aching in my hands.

7. I photograph for Suicide Girls.

8. I'm loving my new camera!

9. I'm finally getting my life back on track at age 29!

10. I don't believe in religion, but I am spiritual. I don't think we're alone. :)

11. I constantly wonder how my kids have blue eyes, when their fathers eyes are green, and mine are brown...

12. I've never met any of my cousins. Though I did run into a guy who worked at the mall with the same last name as mine!

13. I still do not have my drivers license, and don't think I ever will.

Round TWO?? Oh my goodness here I go :D

1. My grandmother turns 96 this year. Her mind is still as sharp as can be & her heath is still as good as we can hope for.

2. My mother has 12 brothers and sisters. My dad has 9. My mother-in-law has 10, my father-in-law has 6 :). All my aunts/uncles have on average 4-5 childrens..

3. ^^ means together, my hubby and I have a gazillion first cousins :)

4. I collect Beany babies.

5. I am always late. It's a bad habit I'm trying to quit, but not yet successful. My husband, on the other hand, is an extreme on-timer. So, whenever we go together, I'm on time. When I go by myself, I'm late :(

6. My resolution for this year was to pack my lunch every day. I'm keeping up with it so far so good.

7. My dream dog is a Golden retriever.

8. I LOVE all kinds of ice-cream, special ones with nuts. I can finish the whole box of ice-cream on one serving!!

9. I HATE wearing socks.

10. I sleep very easily. No mater what time of day, or whether I just woke up, no mater where I am.. If my back touches a flat surface, 2 second later, I'm gone :)

11. I am exellent at multi-tasking. Right now, I'm compiling this list, entering data to a spreadsheet, all the while talking to a vendor on the phone..

12. I'm very low maintenance. All my clothes, except for a few nice pieces to wear to church, interviews, parties, etc, are below $20 :)

13. I love roses. We have 50 bushes in all different colors at our home.

14. My figures are extremely sensitive to ice. I can't hold a frozen thing for more than a few seconds without turning the tips of my figers red, make them tinkling, and have the burning sensation.

15. I don't watch any sports on TV, except soccer.

16. I'm NOT a morning person. Once in college, I took an 8:00 a.m. class and only managed to attend it twice. One for a midterm, and the other for final. I got a B+ though :)

17. I never eat breakfast. (I know breakfast is the most important meal of the day.. but.. but I just don't feel hungry in the morning)

18. I wish I know how to cook better.

19. I still have all my wisdom teeth. They were set properly and have never given me any problems.

20. We set aside an area in our backyard for my parents to grow vegetables. Hopefully by next summer, we'll be having home-grown veggies!!

21. We'll be planting 10 tropical fruit trees in our backyard in the spring!! :D

22. When I was a little kid, my mom taught me practice reading by reading signs on the street. I still read all the signs now.

25. I'm not shy. I can start a conversation with anybody about anything.

26 << My age when I got married.

27. I don't know how to swim. I don't even know how to float. A near-drown experience when I was 15 took away my confident in water.

28. Other than that, I'm a very confident person. I believe if God's willing, I'm capable of doing anything I set my heart and mind to.

Carmen, here's a link to a site that has Boston fabric. I'm not sure how it works. They have the fabric for sale but do they make things for you too?

Pembroke Corgi: They have all breeds. I don't see wallpaper unfortunately.


Oooh, Thanks!

02-10-2009, 06:06 PM
I swear I just killed over an hour reading through all of these and found everyone very interesting. I even learned a few things I didn't know before! ;)

Here are my 28 random things:

1. I like my job and my boss.

2. I never thought I would live in California and like wine as much as I do.

3. I have an obession with all things Irish/Celtic and have wanted to see Ireland since I was like 10 years old.

4. I love oriental cats and have 2! They are my dream pet and I'll never live in a house without an oriental.

5. I have met Heywood Banks 3 times (extra credit to those who know who Heywood Banks is!)

6. I joined the marching band in high school because a friend of mine told me they were going to Toronto my Senior year. I had a Clarinet, but didn't really know how to play. I joined anyway and even though I couldn't really read music (what are all those black dots?) I listened to everyone around me and learned the music that way - this even got me through 4 years of college bands!

7. I love wolves and did some volunteer work at Wolf Park when I was in college. I even got to hold a baby wolf. So cute! I really learned a lot about canine behavior working there.

8. I have been a member of an online forum (Pet Talk) since Jan 2001, and am still posting today! I have met so many people in this forum that are now friends in real-life.

9. I don't like the way I look - I have very low self-esteem

10. I'm very proud of my sister who has overcome many difficult challenges in life. She's a Doctor! Cool, huh?

11. I worked in a vet hospital for a year and still maintain their website!

12. I can't go to bed without washing my face and brushing my teeth - otherwise something just doesn't feel right

13. It takes forever for me to fall asleep, so I read every night. If I don't read, I will toss and turn and not sleep well. Even if I'm really tired, I still need to read at least a sentence or a page...basically until my eyes get heavy and I start to fall asleep.

14. I get "vibes" about people, places and things

15. I can't leave the house without making my bed - it feels too disorganized if the bed is left unmade. Similarly, clutter in the house stresses me out. I hate to clean, but usually feel much more calmn when things are newly fresh and clean and everything is in it's place.

16. My husband is a really good cook!

17. If I hit the lottery, I would buy a house on a beach or at least near the ocean. The ocean has a calming effect on me - the sound of waves is one of my favorite sounds. Better yet, a house on the coast of Ireland would be awesome!

18. My best friends are my husband and parents

19. I really admire my dad - he can do anything!

20. I tend to be a people-pleaser, even at the sacrifice of my own happiness sometimes.

21. I never wear shoes in the house (unless I'm leaving)

22. I have been friends with someone since 1st grade - even though we live far apart now, when I see her it's like no time has passed at all. :-)

23. I have a strange fascination with gnomes & fairies

24. I have been to India, which was amazing. I got to see where my husband was born and meet his whole family (30 members anyone??!!) which was very special. I can't wait to go back!

25. I'm very happy with where I am with my life. I have everything I've always wanted: my husband, my kitties, a job I like, a roof over our heads and food in our mouths and a supportive family on both sides. :-)

26. If I could play any instrument I wanted and be really good at it, I'd want it to be the Irish fiddle

27. I'm madly in love with my husband. I swear I feel my heart swell when he is nearby.

28. I have a fear of doctors and haven't been for a regular checkup since before my trip to India. I really know I should get regular checkups, I just have a phobia of doing so.

17. I went to the beach for the first time in 2002 when I took a trip North & South Carolina … where I discovered I was deathly afraid of crabs. They kept popping out of holes and chasing me around – causing me to scream and cry hysterically.

Here we go again Terry - round 4

1. I have never eaten avocado. I just can't get past the looks!
2. When I was little - I got car sick all the time. No Sunday afternoon drive was any fun.
3. My first few month of 1st grade, I had to have a home tutor. The new school in walking distance wasn't completed, and I couldn't take the bus to the temporary school. (Bus sick!)
4. I spent my 60th birthday on a 24 hr train ride to Miami to attend my brother's funeral. I don't do planes!
5. When I travel I must have a window seat. Need somewhere to prop my pillow so I can sleep!
6. I was born and raised in New England, but to this day, have never been to Maine or Vermont.
7. I have walked to the top of the Washington Monument.
8. When I was a kid, I slammed the car door shut on 3 fingers. Nothing broken, but lost a couple of fingernails.
9. When I was an adult, a "helpful" store clerk loading a heavy item into the trunk of my car, slammed the trunk closed on the same 3 fingers. Again - nothing broken - just some nerve damage in 1 finger.
10. I never learned to play a musical instrument which was a bummer, since I envied those in the marching band in h.s.
11. People that scuff their feet are very annoying to me. Pick them up!!!
12. I hate pulling weeds, so I'm not much of a gardener.
13. I tend to get nervous on very windy days. I been thru several hurricanes and one very small tornado.
14. I taught myself to knit, crochet and do macrame. I just couldn't get it when my mother tried to teach me. My favorite projects were afghans.
15. I cut my long hair when I turned 30, because I listened to my mother when she said I was getting "too old" for long hair. I still regret it.
16. I hate guns. My ex was in law enforcement, and I hated that he had his service revolver in the house.

18. I have cheated death twice, so I celebrate every day that I'm alive, no matter how bad things may seem at times.

20. I have never worked as a waitress, nor worked in a fast food joint - ever!
21. White roses are my favorite flower.
22. I used to ride a bike about 20 miles a day if I didn't have to work. Lots of woodland preserves around here to enjoy.
23. My RB Meezer Ming was catnapped from out of state by my sil and given to me. He was only a kitten and was being abused - something neither of us could tolerate. He was with me for 20 years!.
24. People think I'm tough - but I'm a real marshmallow. Even the sight of road kill upsets me, and I can't watch any t.v. shows like Animal Precinct or the old Emergency Vet show. Too upsetting, and I can't get the images out of my head.
25. All the men on my father's side of the family died relatively young - early 70's and under. However my surviving brother has broken the record and will be 75 this year. All the woman on that side of the family did much better - living in to their 80's and even one in her 90's. Hmmm - wonder where I fit in there???
26. When I was in grade school, I wrote an essay that won me a trip to the U.N. and Radio City Music Hall. That was my first train trip.
27. I never got my driver's license until after I was married, because my father was a very old-fashioned Italian dad, and he believed that women didn't need to know how to drive, and wouldn't allow me to take driver's-ed in school. Obviously, my mother never learned to drive!
28. I'd like to see Medusa give us at least one list on here. Come on Mary!

3 ripe avocados(more if you wish)
2 plum tomatoes-deseeded
2 cloves of carlic finely diced
Cilantro to taste(I used quite a bit)
2 green onions sliced, tops and all
1 fresh jalapeno, diced-deseeded
Pickled jalapenos-I used about 8 slices-HOT HOT HOT!!!
1 tbsp. juice from the pickled jalapenos-EVEN HOTTER :eek:
Coarsely ground peppercorns
Juice of one nice juicy lime

Put the avocado in a bowl(I didn't mash it). I left it chunky so I could eat it.;)
Mix all ingredients with the avocado. Stir together gently, leaving chunks.
Squirt lime juice all over the mixture and gently stir in. You can add this with everything else if you want to avoid stirring too much.

If you like it mashed, just mash it or stir normally.

I think that's all I put in it, Richard. I hate it even more when it turns brown. The lime juice helps that from happening.
I dipped it with tortilla wedges I deep fried. It was delicious!!

ETA: I may have thrown some more spices I like in there too. I'm good at throwing everything in the spice rack in all my dishes.:)

Carmen, that book was so sad. At the end, I was bawling. I felt like I knew him and his family and all I could see were his kids and Jai not having him anymore. How cool that he wrote that book and left it for his legacy.:(

22. I desperately want to tell my sister the family secret. But I can't.

She probably already knows unless she is very young.

Round 3 of 28 random things

1. I love a thunder storm. The smell of negative charged air rejuvenates me.

2. My favorite plant is the Crepe Myrtle.

3. A loud gun shot in my 20's left me tone deaf. I especially have problems hearing the female voice.

4. My all time favorite movie is “Another place in time”.

5. I do not like shows that go out of their way to show blood and gore. This seems to be a new trend that plagues many shows that I would other wise love.

6. I was almost 5 before I had my first hair cut. i think my mother wanted another girl.

7. I had a pet Jenny mule as a kid. She was the alarm clock for everyone in a 5 mile radius. Her morning bray was unreal. When we finally found a new home for her we had people calling wanting to know what happen to Josephine their alarm.

8. The most trouble I got into as a kid was killing My fathers prize Golden Pheasant rooster by accident with my BB gun.

9. The number of my favorite NASCAR driver.

10. I still have my wisdom teeth.

11. I found 3 baby snakes and took them home with me as a kid. Turns out they were Copperheads. I was lucky because even a baby snake has deadly venom.

12 The number of my all time favorite quarterback, Joe Namath.

13. When I was a kid I was self conscience about my ears. I have since grown into them. They are still big but they are no longer an issue for me

14. I had a pet alligator for a short time as a 10 year old. I had to find it a new home after my mother almost stepped on it one night when she got up for my baby sister's two am feeding. Up until I heard her screams my pet had been my secret.

15. When i was 16 my first auto accident was because of a game of chase. I rolled my car in a family's side yard uprooting 2 trees and scooping up hundreds of Canna lily bulbs with my wheel well. BIG Trouble. Lost my car for months and had to landscape the yard.

16. My first fishing trip as a kid was at my uncles in Florida. I didn't catch a fish but did catch a huge alligator. Needless to say my uncle let the alligator have the fly hooked in the roof of his mouth.

17. Another teen adventure had me hitching a ride on train pulling old passenger cars. When the train was suppose to stop it didn't and my friend and I had to jump from the moving train at 35 miles an hour.

18. One night while walking home from church a friend of mine drove up in a Jeep and ask if I wanted a ride. Rather than driving me home he proceeded to drive to the woods and ditched the Jeep. He informed me he had stolen the Jeep from a National guard armory, He had run away from home and needed away to get back. At the time we were both 15. This delinquent is now a prominent doctor in North Carolina and married to my first girlfriend at 13.

19. I usually have a good memory but when it comes to movies I don't. I can start watching a movie I've seen and keep thinking this looks familiar but can not remember anything about it until I'm seeing it. That goes for the ending also.

25. When I was 7 years old I would ride the bus 10 miles to go the the Mickey Mouse Club at the Alabama Theater. Today you would never even think about allowing a 7 year old out anywhere alone. Things,at least in the south, were different back then.

26. I converted a hearing aid into a radio when I was in high School. I got caught when my teacher told my sister I needed to have my hearing aid adjusted because I could never hear her. My sister told her I was not hard of hearing and did not wear a hearing aid. Oh well it was good while it lasted.

27. The only ball sport that I care for is College Football. The Super bowl was the only Pro game I watched all year.

28. My Social Security card has my first name as Billy. I got my card when I was 11 and had no idea my name was really William. I have since corrected all my records but the only card I have ever owned said Billy.

Oh, kiddo, so much of the stress is probably wedding-related, and soon it will all be over and you can begin the exciting part - being married to each other and enjoying it!

It is terrible how much emphasis society these days puts into having the "perfect" wedding - like it wasn't stressful enough? The most perfect, lovely, story-book wedding I ever went to (in early May, on a beautiful sunny and warm but not too hot day, small Vermont town, bride's dress crocheted by her mother, the town green - which we had to cross to get to the reception - all in blossom with wildflowers ...) the marriage was over by Thanksgiving. The next time that friend got married, it was by a Justice of the Peace in the shell of what would be their new house (construction delays) and they just had two of the carpenters for witnesses ... and that was the marriage that lasted!

14. My first pet was a newfie named shera
15. When i was alittle I used to think I was a dog and used to carry a bone in my mouth and crawl on my hands and knees
16. When I was 3 my parents caught me brushing a dead mouses teeth with a toothbrush outside because it had yellow teeth!! kinda gross i know

All proof that you would grow up to be - a Pet Talker! :) :)
