  2. i think every food is better with at least one of the following: bacon, gravy, salt, butter, or mayo
  3. i get upset when people tell me my hair is black… it’s dark brown

  5. i still wear a pair of pants that i bought my freshman year of high school um, yah, i’ve gained a few since writing this
  6. i was born in california
  7. when i talk about growing up in CT or that my parents are from MD, i’m always afraid that people are going to think i’m adopted so i make it clear that my family moved around alot
  8. i’m lactose intolerant.  i often forget this and have to relearn the hard way
  9. i only eat soup i can see through… i have many issues with food texture
  10. i ate my first baked potato in 2006.  now i crave baked potatoes on a daily basis but i refuse to eat mashed potatoes (see #9)
  11. i golf.  i took lessons to learn how when i was pursuing M since he was/is an avid golfer
  12. i dated my golf instructor for a little while.  i wish i hadn’t because he was a great instructor and i need lessons again
  13. i prefer snow banks to beaches but love being tan
  14. people often assume i’m portuguese or italian because of my skin & hair.  i’m neither.
  15. i love going to the casinos but i only play blackjack
  16. i watch sad movies when i’m already depressed just to have an excuse to cry
  17. S and i got a tattoos when i turned 18.  we both often forget we have them and realize it was something we easily could have lived without… i without looking i can’t even tell you what side it’s on
  18. i keep a list of major things i want to accomplish each year.  since these things are usually $ intensive, the lists are typically under 5 items
  19. invisalign has been on my list every year.  but i think it’s going to get bumped… again – my invisalign will be complete in April ’09 two days before my wedding
  20. i take anywhere from 25 – 55 minutes in the shower.  i can just stand there under the hot water for hours if given the opportunity
  21. i will leave and re-enter my apt. our house an average of 2 times before being able to go anywhere.  i’m always running out in a hurry and forgetting one thing at a time.
  22. i’m a photo junky.  i have pictures of everything.  i have boxes and boxes of photos.  i have many albums lying around with different themes
  23. i don’t ever change a photo in a frame.  once it’s cut to fit and it looks good, i feel like that’s it’s home.  i have many frames i love that have been banished to boxes because of the photo that is in them
  24. when i’ve been shopping and can’t find anything that looks good on me, i buy shoes to bring my spirits up
  25. i typically hate all most of my clothes but feel that i can distract from a bad outfit with great shoes
  26. i was a bitch to serena altschul once because i was in a bad mood, after i realized who she was i felt bad… but i shouldn’t have just because she’s famous
  27. i don’t wear or own much jewelry, and only 2 pieces of yellow gold
  28. when i enter a hospital my heart and mind begin racing… it’s something about needles and my fear of them plus the hospital smells, i tend to pass out after being there too long
  29. i’ve been wearing my silver claddagh for 10 years on my right hand.  i’m very serious about this ring and get upset when i realize i’ve put it on upside down – i no longer wear this as putting an engagement ring on my left hand bumped my parents’ ring to my right hand and my claddagh to the jewlery box
  30. my mother had a ring made out of her & my father’s wedding bands.  i’ve been wearing this on my left hand since the day i got it.  it’s easily my most prized possession.– moved to the right hand, see above

  32. i always go with my gut.  always.

  41. i’ve been skydiving
  42. i love fruit.  this often ruins my meal because i’ll fill up on it

  55. i really really want to have a baby. 
  56. i’m scared to death of actually being pregnant and of having to give birth
  57. i left college before graduating.  i can justify it, and am completely happy with my decision, but sometimes i get nervous that i made a mistake and one day it will bite me in the butt… so far it hasn’t
  58. i despise whistling.  i think it’s the worst sound in the world.  i have never told M this because he whistles sometimes, and i don’t want him to always have to feel like he can’t do it around me… but it makes me shudder when i hear it
  59. i’ve always wanted to get my ears pinned back.  i know that i’ll never go through with it (see #28)

  63. i once had a dream that dolly parton was my best friend

  72. i’ve eaten a yogurt (almost) every single day since 2005
  73. i prefer miracle whip over mayo
  74. i go through love/hate phases with every fast food chain.  i’m currently in a love BK/hate McD phase

  80. until recently i always thought i’d be famous and/or filthy rich when i grew up.  i’ve recently realized that time is running out on that

  87. i make spreadsheets about everything i can
  88. i plan out what i’m going to do with my millions every time i buy a lotto ticket.  i even do the math out on paper, sometimes a spreadsheet.
  89. i’m jealous of people that smell like laundry all day.  i do everything i can to get mine smelling good, but i feel like the scent disappears somewhere between the closet and my body
  90. i have a sister that’s 3 yrs older than me but people used to mistake us for twins
  91. my mother and i look alike.  the only way you can tell our childhood pictures apart are hers are b&w and mine are in sepia tones

  93. 13 going on 30 is my guilty pleasure movie

  100. i’ve been completely out of debt since 2006 and don’t ever want to go back
  101. i have zero patience!  so the fact that it’s taken me over 4 weeks to complete this is unheard of!
