rooted, but still growing

100 More Things About Me

2. I don’t have a favorite food.

3. I enjoy listening to classic country music on XM Radio while I’m at work.

4. My female dog is named after Waylon Jennings.

5. I recently started wearing glasses.

6. I can tell you more than you’d ever want to know about compact fluorescent light bulbs.

7. I’m a registered Democrat, but my views are becoming more conservative as I grow older. However, I refuse to become a Republican so I’ll probably just become an Independent.

8. I am severely hard-headed.

9. I got engaged on my sister’s birthday.

10. My fiance proposed to me in the garage.

11. I abhor people who are conceited — especially when they have no reason to be.

12. A perfect winter day for me would involve a pot of chili, fresh snow, a new book and a warm blanket.

13. I’m working on my master’s degree in marketing/communication. I have a perfect gpa.

14. Water with (extra) lemon is my favorite beverage.

15. Energy drinks have zero effect on me.

16. As a teen, boys made me nervous. Now my life is predominately filled with males. Interestingly, there’s much less drama in my life.

17. I do, however, have the best female friends I’ve ever had. I miss them very very much.

18. I am amazed that my life has turned out this well.

19. I believe in God, but I don’t go to church. I guess it’s my aversion to drama that makes me stay away.

20. I take up for myself. Nobody puts Baby in the corner!

21. I also know when to keep my mouth shut. Mostly.

22. Things that would bother most people don’t bother me.

23. Things that wouldn’t bother most people bother me.

24. There will be more people at my wedding than I’d like for there to be.

25. I don’t paint my fingernails. Just my toenails.

26. I enjoy running the weed eater in our yard.

27. I think Brett Favre is H-O-T. But not as hot as Peyton Manning.

28. I would watch “Gilmore Girls” until my eyeballs fell out.

29. We have a lot of arguments at my house about “Gilmore Girls.”

30. But if I ever own a farm or large tract of property, I’m going to name it “Stars Hollow.”

31. I enjoy cooking, but I hate cleaning up.

32. I have few regrets.

33. I’m crazy about Christmas.

34. I think I had the best childhood ever.

39. I started this year’s Christmas shopping in September.

40. If there was a movie about my life, I’d want Lauren Graham to play me.

41. I’m pro-choice, but I think the “choice” should first be to make responsible decisions about your body before you get into a bad situation. That’s why we have birth control. Use it. On the other hand, accidents happen and no one has the right to tell a woman what to do with her body.

42. Gene Wilder creeps me out.

43. So does Christopher Walken.

44. I know a lot of really interesting people.

48. I recently had to increase my bra size to DD. Jealous?

49. I had a cyst removed from my back a few months ago. I got to see it once they got it out — it was awesome.

50. I developed celluitis on my left big toe on a trip to Washington, D.C. I think it’s wildly coincidental that I had a flesh-eating disease in that city.

55. I hate getting out of bed in the morning.

56. I’m chronically late for work.

57. I multitask so often that I have difficulty focusing on just one thing, or doing nothing at all. It kills me.

58. I don’t think I should have to subsidize the wages of waiters and waitresses, but I tip anyway. If you’re good, you get a big tip. If you suck, you get nothing plus a complaint to  your manager.

59. I pee about 18 bazillion times a day.

60. If you say something bad about someone I love, it’s on like Donkey Kong.

61. Most of my role models/heroes are women, with the exception of Benjamin Franklin.

65. I think parades are stupid.

66. One of my greatest dreams is to someday have enough money to be a philanthropist. I’d pour donations toward causes that improve education and the lives of women.

76. I don’t think Angelina Jolie is that attractive.

77. Environmentalists piss me off.

78. Of all the newspaper jobs I had, the first was the best. It’s the only one I miss, even though the pay sucked.

80. I do enjoy alcoholic beverages, though.

81. I’ve never tried a single cigarette or illegal drug.

82. All of my relationships have been monogamous.

83. George Bush is a terrible, horrible, awful president. But I’d invite him to a backyard barbecue.

84. I want to take fiddle & guitar lessons.

85. I love watching shows on TLC and the Hallmark Channel. Shut up.

86. Even if I were wealthy, I don’t think I could bring myself to spend $1,000 on one shirt.

87. I have stinky feet.

88. It took me a looong time to be comfortable enough to fart in front of Steve. Now? I let loose all the time.
