100 Things about me
March 2007

2. I’m scared to have children because I don’t want to share my husband.
3. When I walk to my car alone at night, I always check the backseat for psychopaths.
4. I’m deathly afraid of being chased. Lord of the Rings gave me anxiety. Tag and Hide and Seek were almost unbearable when I was a kid.
5. I though Old/Fort Cheese was a brand name. I didn’t realize that “Fort” was the French word for “Old” until I was 20.
6. I still think that sometimes, Gremlins are hiding in my closet.
7. I hate it when Scott is away for the night and I hate being left alone. (mainly because of # 6)

9. When I fall asleep at night, I rub my feet together.
10. I LOVE to play with wrinkles, in pant or shirts or pillow cases, anywhere I can find them.
11. I didn’t realize how important family really was until they all moved away.

20. Now that I’ve lost almost 60 lbs, I can leave the house without make up on.
21. I love it when Scott is talking to other people and he mentions me. Even if he just says “Where are her things?” I love the sound of the word “her” when he is referring to me.

Whew, that was so hard, but lots of fun too!



  1. That does look like fun. It must have been hard to think of 100 things about yourself. My favorite thing that you wrote about yourself is "If I had my way, the whole world would write with crayons. Nice bright colors."

    Well, I'm off to master the art of the Rubix Cube...


  2. Great list. I think everyone should make a list like that. It really forces you to do a toal self examination.

  4. Great list I can relate to so many of those!

  5. Great blog! I love the 100 Things about Me! Now I know why we're friends - I thought I was the only weirdo that's tried to move things with my mind and zap myself other places. ha ha. Life is more fun when you think that stuff might be possible! And I always use the plastic fork for takeout too. You're weight loss blogs are inspiring too!

  6. I've leatned to fall asleep sitting up while watching movies, too!
