Let's see...10 things..

1. I've been a vegetarian since I was born.

2. I went to a nutritionist and he told me I was lactose intolerant, but I love dairy so much, so I try to just forget he ever said anything.

3. I didn't carry a purse around until I was 18, now I don't know how I ever lived without one.

4. My dream car is a BMW 760Li.

5. It hurts me too much to tweeze my own eyebrows, so I get them waxed.

6. My goal is to become a CEO or at least the president of a company. I'm so stubborn, I know I will make it happen.

7. I don't remember anything about my childhood.

8. I have Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS), which sounds really complicated, but it really isnt. I have to take a beta-blocker before I work out so I don't get dizzy and black out.

9. I wear a size 11 in shoes and because of this it's hard for me to find shoes.

10. I can't sleep without the fan on, but it can't be an overhead fan, it has to be a fan in the corner and it can't be blowing on me.

Default Slightly off-topic

Speaking of saying the abc's backwards--ever see the e-mail where the drunk guy gets arrested and he and the cop are doing a little dance number?

Funny, funny, funny!

If anyone wants it, pm me your e-mail and I'll send it.

Here's mine!

1) I hate all types of seafood and fish with a passion.

2) I still have vivid memories from when I was only 1 year old

3) I was once "Prince Bubba" in a play that was the country version of Cinderella--I brought her kudzu for the ball.

4) I've watched the movie "Now and Then" about 10,000 times (probably 500 seriously).

5) I've watched the movie "Shag" nearly as many times.

6) My son was born on my second wedding anniversary.

7) My husband was my first love AND my first kiss (cool thing to tell the grandkids ).

8) My favorite car is the Shelby 427--NOT the Mustang, the original Shelby that was only built 1964-1966.

9) I named my Great Dane after my favorite car (Shelby).

10) I once had a cat named Whiskers who was blind. He and I had a special language (he didn't meow, he kind of went "rrt-rrt-rrt-rrt-rrt"--you have to roll the r's...LOL), and I had special signals/sounds/vibrations to get his attention/get him to do what I needed him to do. You could hold him like a baby and he would kiss you nose to nose...SWEETEST cat who ever lived, plus we had a special bond thanks to his disability. I had Whiskers since he was born--he has a long life story which I posted on the Internet at AOL one time, but I can't remember the address. When he died, he was about 10 yrs old--it was the first time I cried over an animal in 12 years at least...I was heartbroken. I drove him nearly an hour back to my parents home to bury him on a hill with all his old family members so that I knew I would never move away from where we were living and leave him by himself. Pathetic huh? LOL

I really have enjoyed the messages in this thread...Really interesting and fun people!

Here's my offering:

1) When I was a teen, I never thought I'd get married or have children. Didn't even want to have children. Met my husband and "boom!"...knew I could count on this guy to be a true partner...married 22 yrs and have 4 kids!

2) Worked as a nurse for almost 20 yrs in nursing homes...got really tired of it and completely changed careers. I went back to school and became a microcomputer specialist....I love playing with the toys!

3) My grandma got Alzheimers and I missed her so much before she even had even passed away. I missed her soft southern accent and her laugh....

4) I hope to travel the world after these kids are grown and on their own. With the youngest being 17, there is light at the end of the tunnel!

5) I've been so proud of my parents staying happily married for over 47 yrs! They are truly each other's best friend. I aspire to that.

6) I'm but a stranger here, heaven is my home.

7) I feel healthier and stronger than any other point in my life. Good nutrition and regular exercise are wonderful.

8) My feet have always been wide, even when I was a skinny little kid!

9) I play clarinet, piano, guitar and really love to sing with groups of people. My head finds all the harmony parts in the song. I like that.

10) I feel naked without earrings on.....

1. The most famous person I've met is Joe Ferguson...former quarterback to the Buffalo Bills (I'm a huge Bills fan!!)

2. I had both of my kids before I was married.

3. I've never been off the North American continent. I've only been to Mexico once, but Canada is my second home . It's just like the US, only with a few shakes of Europe to make it interesting.

4. I hate Trading Spaces, but Changing Rooms is my favorite show. Handy Andy is my ultimate male!!

5. I used to be a hairdresser and miss it more than I ever thought I would, but I'm allergic to nearly every chemical, even hairspray, in the salon.

6. My husband is my dream man.

7. I'm a Girl Scout leader

8. I have two beautiful kids. My daughter is going into Junior High this fall and my son is going into preschool. I'll be going to therapy to help deal with my kids growing up so darn fast!!

9. I prefer 30 below zero for a high temperature for weeks over 95 and humid for weeks. I'd rather turn on the furnace and drink tea than turn on the AC and melt into a puddle of God knows what. This is why I like Canada !!

10. I'm a weather freak and love to talk about the weather any time, any where. I even took a college course on Meteorology and love watching hurricanes...from the safety of Northern New York where we only get blizzards !!

Hi Techwife! Yes, I had no idea for years what it meant.. My best friend ( who passed on) was German, and gave me that nickname that stuck with some of my friends.. I never looked it up because I liked not knowing..only knowing that it was a term of endearment!
I love to make people smile with little acts of surprising kindness..I think it makes me smile even more!

I like this

1. I'm somewhat afraid of water and swimming, but love water aerobics (in DEEP water!)

2. I love reading! This is not official data, but in grades 4-8 I read more books than ALL the other grade 4-8 kids.

3. Figure skating fan! (and I skate as well)

4. Love putting smilies in my posts, emails etc.

5. Recently got a new hard drive (the old one got fried up b/c of power surge), and I filled up 80 GB within days. No kidding!

6. My hair was carrot-red in childhood, and then darkened naturally. It's still red/auburn, but a dark shade. Lots of people say "How come your hair is darker now than when I first knew you?" (they can notice the difference within months!)

7. I broke off all contact with my family. Whee!

8. I love organizing, sorting, filing and etc. and can't help feeling extremely sorry for disorganized people...

9. I've never broken or sprained any bone/part of my body and the only time I've been to a hospital was when I was born, but I have some interesting scars.

10. I now have more stuffed animals than I had in childhood, and love them all to pieces.
