The Final 50

They're here, they're here! I had not forgotten, just took a tidbit break. Just in case you would like to review the first 150, they are now conveniently located on my sidebar. So sit back, relax and enjoy the last installment of fascinating facts about moi.

150. My birthday is also the anniversary of the Kennedy assassination (November 22), except I was born 5 years later. Got it?

151. I do not believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone.

152. Two words: Grassy Knoll.

154. But I'm not a nut.

155. Really.

156. I like to hide behind wear big sunglasses.


157. However I'm not brave or cool enough to wear big round ones, a' la Jackie O.

157a. Plus I would most likely look like a bug.

158. Like Jeff Goldblum in The Fly.

159. I like fresh citrus scents, maybe with just a hint of spice.

160. I love to burn money candles.

166. I don't chew gum often.

167. I do like Altoids.


168. Except they make me sneeze.

169. I love to people-watch. It's a guilty pleasure.

170. I imagine what their lives/jobs/families are like. Occasionally I might have a "grass is greener" moment, but usually I am reminded of just how lucky I am.

171. I have a love-hate relationship with the phone.

172. I like having a cell phone in case I need it, but I don't walk or drive around with it glued to my ear.

174. Seriously, Bluetooth? Have those people ever caught a glimpse of themselves?

175. Don't even get me started on telemarketers.

177. Annelise thinks this is an actual person.

178. Silence doesn't bother me.

179. If I have my choice, I don't usually try clothes on before I buy them.

180. This does lead to returns from time to time.

181. But it keeps me out of the dressing room.

182. Even though I am the epitome of suburbia, I often fantasize about living in a big city, like New York or Chicago. Just to see if I could.

183. I am a terrible procrastinator.

184. What I thought was just a phase in high school and college has lasted well into adulthood.

185. I would much rather be cold than hot and sweaty.

187. Yes, I live in Texas where 90% of the year we have hot and humid weather.

188. I don't think I have major fears or phobias.

194. I am math challenged.

195. I appreciate chivalrous gestures like opening/holding doors and ladies first.

  2. I loved your lists! Fun facts. I'm math challenged too and I love it when men hold the door open.

  3. I, too, cannot stand the bluetooth phones. Have those people no mirrors? They look RIDICULOUS. One of these days I will tell someone who's wearing one that. I may get punched in the nose.

    And I'm so with you on fantasizing about living in NYC or some other big city. It would be so fun.

  5. Great post. I loved reading and learning more about you. I love to people watch as well.

  6. That is a great list. I HATE telemarketers too. When my kids ask why I am not answering the phone I tell them "It's just someone who wants our money and I don't want to give it to them."

  10. I'd rather be hot than cold. And naturally I live in Pennsylvania. We should switch.

    I love that you did 200 of these! I enjoyed reading every one. Just don't expect me to remember any of it. ;-)

  11. I agree...I would love to go back in time. Only upper-class though.

  12. That was fun! I am one of those blue-toothers and sometimes I realize how stupid it looks and hold the phone up to my ear just to make sure people know I am on the phone, not just talking to myself.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Whoops, sorry Rhonda about the Bluetooth--I didn't realize I knew any users personally!

    ReplyDelete
  14. 200 - yahoo! These were so fun to read. Altoids make me sneeze, too.

    The first time I saw someone with a Bluetooth headset in their ear, it was a friend and we were out to dinner to celebrate another friend's birthday. She put her hair behind her ear, and there was this scary looking device stuck to her head. My thought was "you're a mom, not an air traffic controller! get that thing out of your ear!" And I always find it amusing when I'm at the mall or something and somebody just looks like they are completely talking to themselves. But, I always hope when people see me in my car actually talking to myself, that they assume I have a bluetooth in. ha!

  15. I think we might be the same person.
    I even criticized my husband and his blue blinking ear so much he finally gave up on it.
