A Double Dozen Plus One

This is one of those silly blog things ... tell 25 random things about yourself. Here goes:

.1. Sometimes I drink my coffee in the shower.

.2. I regularly hide food from my kids.
.3. I would rather hang out with the teenagers than the adults.

.4. My mom usually does our ironing.

.5. I would do anything for 15 minutes alone.

.6. I dance when no one is watching.

.7. I listen to my favorite songs hundreds of times before they grow old.

.8. Tenth Avenue North is top of my list. I love Mike's writing.

.9. Sometimes when I go running I actually like it.

.10. I carry a concealed weapons permit and I will be so bummed if I die never having shot a bad guy.

.11. I still smile when I remember the time the guy at Trader Joes told me to have a beautiful day.

.12. Nothing makes my day like a text from Collin when he's at school. He has the craziest stories ...

.13. I've always wanted to play the matchmaker and introduce just one couple that eventually gets married.

.14. I still think Jack was wrong to kill ***** in season 7. (Aren't I nice not to ruin it for you?)

.15. My son's friends are the best. I wish they all lived here.

.16. I forget to eat.

.17. I get Mia, Ania's and Alissa's birthdays/years all mixed up and sound so stupid on the phone when I make their doctor appointments.

.18. I think its not nice to read someones blog and never leave a comment. Feels like snooping.

.19. I will never forget the day I figured out that I have a fear of heights.

.20. I also have an irrational fear of flying. Well, not flying. Crashing. Well, not the actual crash. The spiraling out of the sky with everyone on board screaming ... oh, never mind.

.21. I'm over the past and excited about the future.

.22. I think Kaisha's hair is always pretty. Even when she just rolls out of bed.
.23. I still wonder if anyone really likes coleslaw.

.24. I started liking U2 last year. Bono is cool. And The Edge is just a nice guy.

.25. I have some of the best friends on the planet. I don't know if I would have made it til now without them.

I like coleslaw, I share your airplane fear, and I, too, hide food from the kids. We have many things in common my sweet sis in law!

Jessica said...

Wow! I learned lots about you! I have to say, I've never heard of anyone drinking coffee or anything else in the shower. But I think I could see how that might work...:) I don't do any ironing either, I dance when nobody's watching too, but I never forget to eat. :)

Amanda said...

WHAT?!?! THERE IS FOOD IN THIS HOUSE THAT I DONT KNOW ABOUT! I have to get off this computer at once and find it....

oh, nice post! :)

I LOVE this list! :-) So fun :-) You had me grinning the whole way through.

Kaisha said...

She also hides read aloud books so that we won't read ahead. Then she forgets where she hid them.

You're a Jack Bauer wanna-be aren't you?

I still have to tell someone to have a beautiful day...i haven't forgotten. I'm just weird and get twigged out when I should do it...

.26. No one *sets out* to eat at Denny's.

You rock, my friend. Keep posting, some of us smile before we even start reading...

Alissa said...

I admit I read your blog (and a few others and not leave comments - I can't figure out how to leave a comment without creating an account I don't want).
About #13... I wish I lived closer to you so you could work on that one with me. I like coleslaw. I wish I could forget to eat once in a while... mostly I forget to stop eating. I like running only after I stop, but that is getting better.

Kristine said...

Kris! Hi! I haven't seen you in ages. We should converge on the Arend home at the same time one of these days. I hope everything is going well for you. Thanks for reading my blog and leaving a comment!
