40 things

Borrowed from someone else and I had nothing better to do... other than take a shower and get dressed this morning. But here goes:

1. My uncle once: took me on a camping trip with my aunt and cousins and I discovered how much I hate camping.

2. Never in my life: have I jumped out of an airplane. But I might some day.

3. When I was five: I guess I calmed down after having 108 stitches that came from getting my head stuck in a cabinet (3 behind the ear), falling off of a slid (20 in my head), and getting hit by a car and breaking my neck (80 from the surgery on my neck).

4. High School was: a lot of great times with friends. Band was a blast. I was successful with band and speech.

5. I will never forget: anything. O.k. I do forget where I leave my keys and other such things, but as far as other “stuff” I tend to have a memory like an elephant.

6. I once met: Penn, from Penn & Teller. And I can’t say I really met him. I took a picture of my then husband with him after we saw his show.

7. There's this girl I know who: I know several… but for the life of me can’t think of anything interesting to say right now. Will have to skip this one.

8. Once, at a bar: I got a mini lap dance. And it really was a strip club… not just a bar. Not something I’m proud of, but I thought that if I tried supporting my then husband in his “interests”, I wouldn’t be so upset by his wandering eyes. Didn’t work, but it was interesting.

9. By noon, I'm usually: gearing up for the bulk of my afternoon classes. I have 4 classes from noon until 3:50.

10. Last night: I did laundry, watched t.v., and made really yummy chicken parmesan.

11. If I only had: Money. It may be the root of all evil, but I sure could use a little more these days.

12. Next time I go to church: will be on Wednesday night for RCIA. And then again on Sunday.

13. Terry Shiavo: very sad.

14. What worries me most: right now, money. I also worry whether I’m doing a good job with my son. I want him to grow up happy and be successful in whatever he chooses.

15. When I turn my head left, I see: bookshelves loaded with books. I immediately see the shelf with Janet Evanovich and Sue Grafton books.

16. When I turn my head right, I see: The hallway, my dad’s old victrola.

17. You know I'm lying when: you don’t. I’m not necessarily proud, but generally if I’m lying you won’t know it.

18. What I miss most about the eighties: the music. The fact that life was so much more simple then.

19. If I was a character in Shakespeare, I'd be: Lady McBeth… at least that is what my ex would say… because I wanted to tell him what to do. I think I might be more like Juliet, but smarter… I wouldn’t kill myself over love, but I might do some stupid things.

20. By this time next year: I will be in probably the same place I am… but will be Catholic. I’d like to think that perhaps I might find someone to date, by then, but it’s not very promising.

21. A better name for me would be: I don’t know… I think I fit my name. I did hear from my parents that they almost decided on Michelle. But I don’t think that would have fit me.

22. I have a hard time understanding: stupidity. People that are mean. Geometry.

23. If I ever go back to school, I'll: get my masters and certification in Library Science.

24. You know I like you if: I talk to you… I don’t know… I like everybody until they tick me off.

25. If I ever won an award, the first person I'd thank would be: whomever helped me achieve that particular award and my son.

26. Darwin, Mozart, Slim Pickens & Geraldine Ferraro: Interesting notions, great music, cowboy (had to look him up), and the wrong woman for the job.

27. Take my advice, never: underestimate a woman scorned.

28. My ideal breakfast is: French toast, bacon, and hashbrowns.

29. A song I love, but do not have is: “I can only imagine” It was played at my mom’s memorial service, but I don’t have the CD.

30. If you visit my hometown, I suggest: you got to the Panhandle Plains Museum and to Palo Duro Canyon.

31. Tulips, character flaws, microchips & track stars: Pretty, we all have them, vital, and Jesse Owens.

32. Why won't people: just be nice? Just move on? Forgive more easily?

33. If you spend the night at my house: you need to give me a day’s notice and love animals.

34. I'd stop my wedding for: cheesecake… not really. I don’t know. A tornado warning?

35. The world could do without: People that are mean and stupid. And crickets, roaches and most insects in general.

36. I'd rather lick the belly of a cockroach than: I'd rather die than lick the belly of a cockroach.

37. My favorite blonde is: is my friend Stephanie, who is more brunette than blonde, but is the closest one I can think of.

38. Paper clips are more useful than: thumbtacks… I don’t know. Stupid question.

39. If I do anything well, it's: playing my clarinet, working on computers, and kiss.

40. And by the way: I’m not dating anyone from the internet any more.
