You know that meme that goes around sometimes, the 100 Things About Me one? I’ve always had a hard time coming up with 100 things. I know there are at least 100 things to share, ’cause let’s face it, I wasn’t born yesterday–I’ve lived 38 years of things to share. So I think I’ll use this NaBloPoMo challenge to try to come up with at least 100 things, by sharing three new things a day. At least I shouldn’t run out of topics, right?
1. I am a Virgo. Sometimes I think I don’t fit the description at all–orderly, organized, reasonable and responsible. Sounds like the most boring person in the world. Then I look at my alphabetized dvds, and my sectioned sock drawer, and my to do lists with sub-categories, and think maybe it’s not *so* far off the mark. However, I’m a cuspy Virgo, so perhaps that explains my other, more childlike qualities that maybe I’ll get into elsewhere on the list.
2. I love balloons–big ones, small ones, round ones, long ones; and the more brightly colored, the better. They make me smile, and if there are enough of them, they can make me giddy.
3. I hate white foods. Actually, that isn’t as all inclusive as it used to be. When I was five, I threw up my macaroni and cheese lunch in the parking lot of a store where we were going to see Santa. Needless to say, Santa had to wait. Ever since then, white sauces and creamy stuff freaks me out. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned to accept and even love some white foods–cream cheese and clam chowder come to mind. Cadbury eggs, mayonnaise, sour cream and white macaroni and cheese are still on the no-freaking-way list. (Orange mac and cheese from a Kraft box is ok, though–as long as it’s sticky, and not runny.)
There, that’s my three for the day. 🙂
Weather for today: 62F, with an expected 74F high
