All You Ever Wanted to Know About Me (But Were Afraid to Ask)

Okay, that's not actually the title I wanted to use, but since I'm kind of stealing the topic from Jen (waves to Jen, just in case she's reading), I didn't want to use her title as well. Okay, I'm not actually stealing... just kind of borrowing...

Ahem...

Anyway, for the first time in almost a week, my back doesn't hurt (yay!) and so, here I am - feelin' better but with nothin' to blog about. I haven't done any writing. No rewriting. Pretty much nothing but knitting (sitting on the sofa with the heating pad - there was only so much I could do, even with the laptop.)

So... My return post is about....

ME.

(yes, i know what you're thinking, how thrilling)

But anyway. This topic comes compliments of Jen's blog - Scribbling and I know I've gotten it on Facebook (and I'm really behind on that - even more so than this here blog) and now, I'm going to blog about it -

25 Things You Might Not Know About Me (not in any particular order, but just how I thought of them)

25. I am 5'4"

24. My eyes changed color when I was a teenager. They started out very blue, now they are very green and no, they are NOT contact lenses.

23. I'm not afraid of mice or rats. I actually tried to convince my daughter to get a pet rat last spring. But she went with the gerbils instead.

22. I'm mostly left-handed, but there are a few things that I can't do with my left hand - I play guitar right handed, I can only use right handed scissors. I can, however, write legibly with both hands.

21. I've broken just about every toe on both feet - with the exception of my big toes.

20. I taught myself to knit just because I wanted to see if I could do it.

19. My first movie star crush was Harrison Ford (The Empire Strikes Back, to be exact).

18. FDR is my favorite president. Abraham Lincoln is No. 2 (sorry Abe)

17. I collect wine bottles (I don't know how many I have)

16. I love cartoons

15. I'm so bad at learning languages that, in college, I memorized the entire text book in order to pass my French final. And it worked.

14. One of the best Christmas gifts I ever received was a tool set - I've had it almost 20 years now.

13. My best friend and I have known each other for almost 35 years.

12. I love to cook.

11. I love old cars.

10. I don't believe in getting lost - I believe in finding different ways of getting to and from places (I also have OnStar and have never used it)

9. I talk to myself. Out loud. A lot.

8. Autumn is my favorite season.

7. Black and pink are my favorite colors.

6. My wedding dress was one of the most uncomfortable garments I've ever worn, and I never had it preserved. It's just in a bag in the attic and I don't really care if the moths DO eat it. It's just a dress, after all.

5. I didn't want a wedding. I wanted to go to Vegas and get married by an Elvis impersonator. Seriously.

4. I adore Monty Python

3. Jaws is my favorite movie - I'll watch it any time it's on tv, and can pretty much recite it line for line.

2. I hate the color orange.

1. I think penguins are the coolest animal. ever. period. I collect them as well.

And that's me. =)

Happy Friday!

I still don't see the point of watching Empire once they freeze Han. Movie's pretty much over at that point for me! ;p
