    Getting To Know Me (whether you want to or not)

    I thought I would post some useless trivia about me.

    On with the freak show....

    1. I drive a light blue Nissan Quest. Have you seen one? Check out the dash.

    2. I work for my stepdad who I couldn't wait to get away from when I lived with him (not because he was abusive but because we are too much alike).

    3. I love my job because it's an outlet for my creativity.

    4. I am good at home improvements. I can hang and finish drywall or build a deck.

    5. I married the first (and only) man I ever slept with.

    6. Measuring is a major part of my job. I can center a sign to 1/32 of an inch.

    7. My job requires some hard labor digging holes and pounding in posts.

    8. Deleted for identity reasons.

    9. I have a best friend that I would do almost anything for.

    10. I talk to my mom at least 3 times a day.

    11. I had hyperemesis (extreme vomiting) during both pregnancies. I threw up an average of 7 times an hour. I didn't eat or drink anything for 2 weeks (because I couldn't) and was hospitalized both times.

    12. Growing up I thought I was fat. Looking back now I know I wasn't as fat as I thought.

    13. I have terrible self esteem.

    14. Gardening is a passion for me.

    15. I would be happy if I never got another new thing.

    16. The goals I set in life are based on people, not money.

    17. Deleted for identity purposes.

    18. I grew up in the country, living on a farm.

    19. My grandfather taught me to drive a tractor at age 5. I worked for him and made $.50 and hour. I thought I was rich.

    20. I cleaned hog barns for 2 years in order to be able to go to Europe when I was in high school and I liked doing it.

    21. I am a whore for Tequila. I can drink 12 shots straight up and still stand up and carry on a conversation with you.

    22. Growing up I thought that masturbating was bad but couldn't stop doing it.

    23. I dated a really hot guy who turned out to be gay. I was devastated but he was prettier than I was and I didn't need that kind of competition.

    24. I have had an obsession with Prince since I was 13.

    25. I worked for a top 5 life insurance company for 5 years in the underwriting department.

    26. I stayed home for 9 years with my girls. But I worked on days (cleaning houses) that my husband didn't.

    27. I started modeling at age 5. I stopped when I got married. I have been asked several times to do it again but think I'm too fat.

    28. I finished the school reading program in 6th grade that was supposed to last until 10th grade. My dad wouldn't let me skip a grade.

    29. I am a good cook.

    30. I have the most fun when I'm with my friends and not my husband.

    31. I have always been fat but have always tried to be active.

    32. My husband didn't know my name until the 3rd date. (Should have run screaming!)

    33. He proposed to me on the 1st date. Hmmm....

    34. I love the way my teeth look.

    35. My hair is my second best attribute.

    36. My first concert was Weird Al Yankovic in 1988.

    37. I am overprotective of my girls because of things that have happened in my youth.

    38. I secretly (maybe not so secret now) wonder what sex would be like with someone other than my husband.

    39. I also wonder if i should get counseling.

    40. I strive to make others like me and can't figure out why I care.

    41. The internet, particularly blogs, have become an obsession.

    42. I am addicted to Diet Pepsi.

    43. I love music. I almost always have on my MP3 player.

    44. I have only smoked pot once and it made me paranoid.

    45. My mother in law was Sicilian and grew up with the Kennedy's.

    46. My husband and I have a generation gap even though he is only 8 years older. His parents were older than my grandparents. His sister is older than my mother.

    47. I have been told that I have psychic abilities by 3 different psychics.

    48. Winter camping is a hobby for me. We tent camp in the snow.

    49. I love to be outside no matter what the weather.

    50. I took care of both of my in-laws when they were dying of cancer (even though my mothere-in-law hated me).

    51. I wanted to be a chiropracter when I grew up but got married instead.

    52. I am a great poker player. I learned as a child. We played poker every weekend when I was a kid.

    53. I've learned that men don't like to be beaten at poker by a woman.

    54. I'm too afraid to play in the poker rooms at the casinos. Those old men just give you dirty looks.

    56. I have an addictive personality but have been able to control all of them except food.

    57. If you made it this far you are a superhero and I thank you for caring enough to read this.

    You wild girl, Gigi! I think I'd like to hang out in a bar with you.

    I hope that you will one day post the story of your marriage. I'm sure that's a story worth telling and reading.

    Hey Jenn, great list! You do tequila shots like I do..straight up (gotta chase mine down with Coke though) and I can still stand and carry on a convo after that many too.

    I'm pretty good at poker, hubby says I'm great at blackjack and is always trying to get me to play the tables at the casinos...I'm too chicken though. Maybe if I had a few shots first...


    SignGurl said...
