100 things

I saw this on Noggin Bits and thought I'd give it a try.
So here are my 100 things:
1. I am a klutz.
2. I bruise easily.
3. The combination of 1 and 2 is not a good one.
4. I bought my first item of pink clothing this year.
5. My two biggest fears are failure and that I won’t live up to my potential.
6. I have an abnormally long big toe.
7. Though perhaps I just have abnormally short “other” toes.
8. I have lived in the same city for 25 years.
9. That makes me feel old.
10. About 5 years ago (maybe 6?) I was told I could have a spot in the Alliance of Miami Winterguard for the year.
11. I had knee surgery instead.
12. That winter I met Jordan…see how things work out?
13. When I was about 5, I wished my name was Chrystal. (I’m not sure why)
14. I love to read.
15. I often feel guilty about things that I can’t do anything about.
16. I can’t stand putting on an item of clothing if it’s not ironed.
17. Underwear is the exception.
18. It freaks me out a little when I’m packing to go somewhere and I’m not sure if there will be an iron (I have considered packing my own).
19. I hang most of my clothes to dry.
20. I LOVE dark chocolate.
21. I haven’t been swimming in at least a year (perhaps more).
22. I dye my hair.
23. My hair is VERY straight.
24. I don’t know if I am going to change my name come February.
25. I would like to get a Pug one day.
26. I will name it Sigmund.

28. I often wonder if the guys at the bottle depot are ripping you off.
29. I have never eaten a Big Mac.
30. I’m hoping to run into Jack Layton (leader of the New Democrats) in Ottawa.
31. I really like mystery books.
32. I’ve switched to diet coke and pepsi…I now find the regular stuff too sweet.
33. I am more sensitive than most people realize.
34. My least favourite colour of Skittle is yellow – sometimes I even throw them out rather than eat them (only if there’s no one to share them with though).
35. I have had 2 pets names Tacha; a cat and a dog.
36. Tacha the cat “went to live on a farm” just like Monica and Ross’s dog on Friends.
37. My sister and I had to take Tacha the dog to the emergency veterinary clinic to have her put down on Thanksgiving weekend when my dad was out of town.
38. I love flowers…I wish they weren’t so expensive.
39. My ID says my eyes are brown but I like to think they are hazel (there’s a lot of green in them…too much to be brown).
40. One of the first “adult” songs I remember hearing is “American Pie” by Don Maclean.
41. It makes me angry that life is so unfair.
42. I used to be allergic to red shellfish.

I can relate to so many! Especially number twenty...MMMM!
You may be short wasted (which I have never noticed) but you have long legs!

Evey said...

Fun list! Your all starting to make me look bad, I suppose I should get on my list!

Hez said...

Evey I was thinking the same... I guess I should do it soon, but I hate school so much right now the whole things will probably be "1. I hate school. 2. School is dumb. 3. Why did I bother even going? etc. etc. Maybe I'll spare you all the boredom!

"28. I often wonder if the guys at the bottle depot are ripping you off."

Me too.

"55. I was proposed to in a parking lot."

Why have I not heard the story? Do tell.

"89. The prescription for my left contact lens is -7.00"

What? They pay you? How does that work?

K said...

55. Our first date started and ended in the Bishop Granding high school parking it seemed like a good place.

89. Oh no, they don't pay me...I pay them too much for my contacts. But the strength of the prescription is -7.00. The "-" means I'm nearsighted (a "+" means you're farsighted).
