101 Things

I used to hate when I was little and my mom would ask “if everyone else were jumping off a bridge would you jump too”. Even as a little girl my responses to things like that were generally sarcastic: “probably so mom”….I was never a fan of being the one who got left out. At least when it wasn’t something hugely important. And even at that age I was aware the jumping off a bridge thing was just a metaphor. So just because everyone else has a 100 things list…I want one too.

101. I’m a huge procrastinator but I work so much better under pressure.

100. I have learned more about myself in the last year than I thought possible.

99. I talk and read really fast. I hate when this is pointed out to me. I haven’t slowed down yet and I have no intention of doing so in the future.

98. I’m French, Irish and Polack. Mostly Irish.

97. My friends accuse me of making words up. Sometimes they are but more often than not it is something I picked up in a book I read.

96. Some of the best times of my life have been floating down the river with my friends.

95. Sometimes it takes me a minute to catch up to things. I probably wasn’t paying attention.

94. I am sarcasm personified.

93. A pinkie promise is my sacred form of allegiance.

91. When I was growing up my grandpa used to bet me $50 that I couldn’t finish large plates of food. I always did. This may or may not be where my issues with food began.

90. Sometimes when I drink I can go into my own world, people think I’m being rude but generally I’m just “thinking”.

89. I have a problem with authority. I have been that way as long as I can remember.

88. I love shoes, purses, and gadgets, and shirts, and make-up and perfumes, and earrings and bracelets…some things to excess but I have recently gotten that under control.

87. For the longest time I put my hands on top of my wheel in an L to determine left and right…

86. I love how I feel after a good workout.

85. I love books… my favorite place when I was little was the library; I used to beg to get dropped off there. I still love being in libraries and book stores.

84. I can watch the same movie over and over again and it’s like the first time every time. I blame it on my short term memory problems.

82. I am fiercely loyal to my friends.

81. I don’t like to fight but I love to win.

80. I think it’s fun to ask questions about things I already know the answer to. Just to see what someone else’s explanation is.

79. I write with my left hand.

78. I tend to be in the gray area…I see both sides of everything and have trouble picking which I agree with.

77. I don’t believe there is such a thing as a heel that is too high…or too many shoes for that matter.

76. When I love I do it with my whole heart. With that said I have only been in love once. And the more time that goes by I realize it was more lust than love.

75. I LOVE red wine. It makes me happy…and cheese. Wine and cheese.

74. I am complex, unpredictable, and sometimes hypocritical.

73. I think I’m hilarious. . In college my best friend’s boyfriend at the time told her he didn’t like me because I laughed at myself too much. He was an idiot.

72. If I could afford it I would eat sushi every day.

71. I’ve been told that if my laugh could be described in one word it would be explosive.

70. Dirty Dancing was my favorite movie when I was little. It still ranks up there.

69. Even when I’m “dressing down” I like to be put together. I don’t like the way I feel if I’m not dressed well.

65. I also like white wine, sake, and beer

63. Lately I prefer brunch with my friends over going out late at night..

62. I give great advice, but I have trouble taking it.

61. I have a hard time choosing favorites. Color, drink, season, genre of music.

59. There is something about a guy who plays the guitar…

58. When I was younger I was playing a board game and I pronounced plutocracy PLUTO-cracy (like the dog) I realized it as soon as it came out of my mouth but I was horrified nonetheless.

57. I often think songs are written specifically for me and the situation I am in.

54. I’m a list person. I have lists of what I’m going to do this afternoon, what I want to do this year, what I’m getting from the grocery store. Etc. etc. etc. I find them everywhere but rarely look at them after they have been made.

45. When I say something dumb the words echo in my head for several moments after I have said them. As often as I do it you would think I would be over that.

44. I have a habit of interrupting people that I believe I have gotten better at. I don’t think what I have to say is more important..I’ll just forget if I don’t get it out right then. Thoughts come and go way too quickly for me.

18. I have strawberry shortcake every year for my birthday!

17. I loved being 17 it was one of my greatest years in High School. I was one of the kids who loved their high school experience. Except that first year when I had a very bad set of bangs and I hadn’t quite grown into my legs yet. But other than that….

16. When I’m out, I like dancing with girls far more than with guys. Unless it’s two stepping and the guy doesn’t suck at it…

12. I was voted most witty in high school. I took that as a great compliment.

11. I hate when people send me forwards that say something bad is going to happen if you don’t forward it. But then I send them on…just in case.

6. I get very upset if I miss the previews when I go to the movies. It ruins the whole experience for me. As it does if I don’t get an Icee and chocolate covered almonds.
