Facebook 25

While perusing some blogs out there, I came across Fond of the Silliness' post, "Facebook 25," where she copied her list of "25 Things About Me" from Facebook to share with readers.  I thought this was a very fun idea, so I'm posting mine (with a couple of changes, since it's a few years later!). I'd love it if you guys would post a list like this as well, and leave me a link to your list (or just publish a few as a comment).


1. I often walk into a room and have absolutely no idea why I went in there in the first place.

2. I was an English teacher and have studied American grammar in detail, and yet my husband insists on putting apostrophe's in' nearl'y every' wor'd he' write's.

3. I love going on airplanes. From packing- to takeoff- to drinking in the morning, it's my favorite.

4. I often look back at my college years, those that I can remember, and think, no- that couldn't have been me.

5. Sometimes I like to color. In a coloring book. Like a child.

6. The other night I had a dream that Kyle drove us off a cliff, and we were teetering on the edge, facing certain doom. When I woke up I was a little pissed at him.

7. Even though I am eight years older than my sister, I still act like the typical youngest child.

8. I played the title role in my Junior High's production of "Oliver!" Speaking of which, almost every part I have ever played on stage was a little boy.

9. I LOVE going to school- new notebooks and folders give me an intense thrill.

10. I have white roller skates with pink wheels sitting in my closet that I got in my twenties. I've never used them and refuse to give them up.

11. I've never had a cavity.

12. I'm really unsure how I managed to compete on the balance beam for years, and yet I can't walk a straight line for the life of me.

13. I am an emotional basketcase and will often cry at the slightest thing- or nothing at all, depending on my mood.

14. I enjoy watching horror movies or stupid comedies. No dramas for me (see #13).

15. I have wanted to wear high heels since I was in fourth grade. So- yeah they hurt, but I wear them anyway.

16. I love raw food- sushi and anything tar-tar- yum!

17. My dog, Sadie, gets offended when anyone makes rude remarks. She will usually get up and walk into another room.

18. We were so tiny growing up that my friend Katie and I never even got on a riser at chorus concerts. We were "floor girls."

19. I love that Kyle won't go on roller coasters, because he holds our bags while we're riding.

20. I never owned a diamond until my engagement ring.

21. I hope that I won't be one of those overbearing mothers, but I can totally see it happening.

22. Though I've been living with Kyle for seven years, I still don't know anything about the game of football (other than the fact that the quarterbacks are usually cute).

23. I was a total liberal hippie democrat... until I got my first paycheck.

24. I am a very optimistic person. Perhaps it is naive, but it works for me.

25. I love to receive flowers.

  2. I remember doing this list on Facebook a long time ago. At first I didn't think I could come up with 25 things, but once you get going it was a lot of fun!

  3. Haha- it definitely is... and though it's a bit narcissistic to talk about oneself in such detail, they truly are fun to read (at least for me!).

  4. Love your list- I did something similar in a facebook tag game. I wrote mine just shortly before my son was born.

    Tori Spelling Got SurgeryTori SpellingTori Spelling has never publicly admitted it, the others
    termed them as Barbie Dolls with a negative connotation of
    breast augmentation fort myers fl course. An increasing number of patients treated has to temper
    one's enthusiasm. Such a scenario could lead to new methods of treatment. Treatment of cancer through surgery is no longer as important as any breastenhancing method.
