30 Things About Me

September 26, 2013

30 Things About Me

A friend of mine, Alece Ronzino, posted an article called 100 Things About Me and asked others to do the same. And (so nice of her) she said we could do whatever number we wanted. So I’m doing 30. Because I’m lazy. Er…working.

1. I have to sleep in socks. Always.
2. I love drinking pickle juice
3. Mimes terrify me, as do clowns and scary movies
4. but I love haunted houses with an unnatural passion.
5. The first thing I notice about a man is his nose.
6. then the smile.
7. I danced for 10 years
8. until I discovered soccer.
9. Fall is my favorite time of year
10. and I can’t wait to go camping!
11. I don’t like going on vacations, to movies, or to dinner alone.
12. I lost a city-wide spelling bee in the 5th grade on the word “transition.”
13. I never actually took Geography
14. because my 7th grade Geography teacher died during heart surgery in the second week of class
15. so our substitute spent the rest of the semester teaching us how to play the stock market.
16. I was very good at playing the stock market.
17. It paid for several years of college expenses.
18. But I didn’t know New Mexico was a state until college either…
19. I have a hard time sleeping in past 6 a.m.
20. But I love naps.
21. I once tried to brush my teeth and q-tip my ears at the same time.
22. Don’t ever do that.
23. I don’t cook but I’d like to take classes.
24. I dream of riding a horse across a field with my hair blowing behind me (and appropriate theme music)
25. but a horse bit me once (on the shoulder) and I’m scared of them.
26. I’ve never changed a diaper in my life.
27. I used to make my sister eat cat food.
28. and use deodorant as chapstick.
29. She has mostly forgiven me.
30. I like chasing people with snakes and making them scream.

    I lost a regional spelling bee in 6th grade on the word ‘account.’ I have had a dislike of accounting ever since.

    I absolutely canNOT sleep in socks.

    I lost a 5th grade spelling bee too — on the word “bivouac”. What a stupid word.

    (The New Mexico thing made me laugh!)

    Don’t EVER chase me with a snake.

    What if I chased you with socks from New Mexico?

    I’m still stuck on the pickle juice thing–really? I also lost a spelling bee once on a stupid word (nerves make brain go bye-bye!) You’re welcome to chase me with a snake. I can’t understand why people don’t keep black snakes or garden snakes around to keep down other more dangerous snakes or insects. I have a rather large nose, so apologies. As a matter of fact, if there was some way to politely cover my nose so that shorter people wouldn’t have to look at it, I’d be a fan. I used to be afraid of horses as well, but made the effort to get over it in college with the help of an understanding stabler from my church. I once sprayed hair remover on my hair because I thought it was something else (I was very young and my reading skills were nascent.) I wish I’d had your substitute teacher.

    You’ve got a standing (but limited time) offer to change #26 – probably good for another year at least. ;-)

    Pickle juice is great! We actually keep it around during volleyball too because it helps ease muscle cramps. My brother (the EMT) also says it helps with hangovers.

    Nuts. I guess it wouldn’t kill me, right?
