It's all about Me....


In keeping with my narcissistic personality, here's "My 100 Things About Me" for today's post. I'm going to divulge some things about me that most probably didn't or maybe did know about me. I'm an open book as most of you know. Most o f what you will read was b.c. (before children). I have no regrets. Well, there was that time down in St. Thomas....


Notice glass of wine in hand....


See Below:



  1. I have a tattoo. Yea, that's right. I am the reason for Angelina's. A real trend setter.
  2. My first car was a 1977 Trans Am. Black with a big obnoxious gold eagle on the hood. I thought it was "hot" (insert total sarcasm here).
  3. I drove a Porsche for 13 years. Defiantly before children...Red too..numerous speeding tickets.
  4. All the men I have known have bought me cars.... hmm must be doing something right?!
  5. I think my husband is one of the most handsome man I know. He doesn't lick and lap on me like he once did.
  6. Mini-vans equate "therapy" to me. I swear I will never own one.
  7. I have rode in the cock pit of a commercial jet(no name mentioned) on numerous occasions... illegally........another day another story. Ok, so I was a bit "Randy" in my previous life. All in good fun...
  8. I worked for the airlines for almost 10 years. (In my younger years) I thought it was the most glamorous job in the world..... I still do...
  9. The Caribbean were once my "playground" of choice. Another story....
  10. I have flown to New York for the day just to grab lunch.
  11. I once flew to Chicago for the night to watch a Cubbies game.
  12. My husband paid big bucks to take me to see Bruce Springsten in Chicago a couple years ago. Great seats. Great concert. We have seen Bruce a gazillion times.
  13. I always wear a watch and hence am Always late.
  14. I have a hideous sense of direction. I can get lost leaving my neighborhood. Thank G-d for nav.
  15. I have a weak gag reflex. I'll gag at certain smells. I gag brushing my teeth! I gag when the girls "poo".
  16. I am one of the few people who can not roll their tongue. I look ridiculous trying too.
  17. If I had nothing to do (which is not the case anymore) I could read an entire book in a day.
  18. I love the beach. I would spend the entire day there doing absolutely nothing.
  19. I once "kissed" every store window on Las Olas Boulevard on my way home from a night on the town. Real Classy and with daddy.
  20. My favorite vacation spot involves a beach and a boat and little clothing....(use your imagination here)
  21. I cooked dinner almost every night this past year. And not anything frozen or in a can. Gourmet.
  22. My husband will eat anything I prepare and then rave about it. My biggest fan.
  23. We order Chinese food every Monday. We call it "hell" Monday, but not because of the Chinese. It's always our longest and worst day of the week. I do not cook on Monday.
  24. I can not stand science fiction and don't even pretend to like it.
  25. I am a total Chocoholic. Love it. Will devour whatever we have.

  95. My husband's cousin Ronnie adopted a little girl from China a year before we brought our twins home.

I was reading your list - I thought Bob and I were the only people who used the term "86'd" (where you were 86'd fom a bar). I love it! Where is that from, anyway? I've been saying that since 1988 or 1989...college days...my husband, well, a lot longer than that. Love your list.

Hey Jen 86'd from the bucket bar in Buckhead-- Atlanta. He so deserved it and I had already paid for the damn drink. grrrr.. still makes me mad..

I've got to figure a way to scan the photos of the hair extensions. It's rather frightening. ha ha.. The really funny part is that I thought I was a total "glama puss". ahhhhh... I usually bring those photos out after drinking---- a lot!
