MORE Useless Bits You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Me

Really, I should be hanging my head in shame over here. Rather than push myself to come up with something original, something funny..... I'm going to torture you with a continuation of the 100 things post. Yeah, yeah. I know. You're all just dying to learn more about me, aren't you? :)

#30. I like to read romance novels. Actually, maybe like isn't a strong enough word. Remember those thousands of books that Bug thinks I read? Well, they are all romance novels. I used to prefer the ones set in the regency time period, or in Scotland..... but apparently they just weren't spicy enough for me. The stuff I read now? Well, Google Sherrilyn Kenyon or Christine Feehan. Very yummy.

#31. I am allergic to grass. Guess its a good thing there's not much of that here in hell, huh?

#32. I also am seriously prone to getting severe sun-sickness if I'm in direct sunlight for much longer than a couple of hours. I have to frequently seek the shade. Kinda blows the whole "lucky to be here" thought right out of the water, doesn't it?

#33. I have a strange talent for being able to sing along with almost any song by almost any artist. Really. Coach has just learned to accept that no matter where we are, or what we are listening to, I'll sing along. His brother, however, keeps trying to stump me. He and I have reached an agreement, though. I won't sing along whenever he's around; and he won't turn off Bon Jovi when they shuffle through his IPod playlist.

#34. One of my favorite actors is Steve Buscemi. Hard to explain it, really. But *shrug*, oh well.

#35. I dream in Technicolor. Always have. I thought it was strange the first time I found out not everyone did.

#36. I am a bed hog. However, I disguise it by calling it "cuddling". Shhh... no one tell Coach!

#37. When I was a senior in high school, I could sing the entire Billy Joel song "We Didn't Start The Fire" .... without missing a single word. I'm not so good at that one anymore.

#38. I can watch any 30 seconds of any Sylvester Stallone movie and tell you the title of it. I've only maybe seen about half of those, so I have no clue why I can do this. Coach likes to test me occasionally with the Rambo series.

#39. When I was younger (probably high school again) I experimented with various ways to change the spelling of my name. The one I decided I really liked (but thankfully never actually switched to) took a name that is only five letters long and stretched it to seven.

#40. Right now there are two songs that always make me teary.... one is the song that Coach and I had sung at our wedding (and believe me when I tell you that Rockin' Austin did a truly fabulous job!) ... Everything I Do by Bryan Adams. The other? Forever Young by Rod Stewart.

Ok. I think I'll stop there again. Its extremely late here, and I promised myself I'd try to get more sleep so that I can try to NOT look old. But I might pick this up again at a later date.

OH! And I've got to tell you.... just because its so exciting! Both boys teams won their games tonight, so we're all alive for at least one more! Jock had an absolutely gorgeous hit that went straight out to center field and Hit.The.Fence. It was INCHES from going over and being a home run. Bug? Did the same thing, only his went to left field.

Do you have any idea how badly I wish I could claim responsibility for that talent???


Burgh Baby's Mom said...

You can TOTALLY claim credit for that, silly! Mom always gets to take part of the credit.

I now am trying to remember all the words to We Didn't Start the Fire. I can do it, I know it.

In junior high we were studying the Sioux tribe and this one kid in class always pronounced it swox. It drove the teacher insane until he said that Sioux rhymed with my name. I always marveled at the fact that I could have spelled my name Siouxsanne. LMAO!

Congrats to the boys on such stellar performances.

I love that Bryan Adams song.

We Didn't Start The Fire...holy crap. I don't think I remember anything but the chorus. And even that is sketchy.

I figured out a couple of ways to make your name 7 letters. I wonder if either of them are the same way you spelled it.

You and I are such similar creatures. I think we must be about the same age, cuz I could have (almost) written parts of this post!! lol
