#33 - 100 Things you should know about me - Part 4

76. I'm claustrophobic. If Wally and I are in bed and he leans over to kiss me good night and the covers are over my arms I begin to have a panic attack.

77. I've only really hyperventilated once in my life - it was when someone questioned my integrity.

78. I think that if I let loose I'd become a purse and shoe addict - I'm going to hang on tight.

79. I like holding people's hands.

80. In my intimate life, I'm conservative. (I did not define 'intimate', so don't blame me for where ever your mind is going!)

81. I hate seeing my answering machine light flashing - it makes my heart pound faster.

82. I secretly wish that someone would discover my blog and offer me a book deal or weekly newspaper column.

83. My doppelganger is Tina Fey. I'm ok with that.

84. I sucked my thumb until I was 11 years old - that's why my front two teeth are crooked.

85. I really dislike when people are jealous of each other - I wish I had your hair...

86. I think I could make a great living of meeting people for coffee (even though I don't drink it).

87. I'm starting to think I should create new and interesting challenges for myself to learn from and write about after this forty days.

88. I really notice people who live differently and try to be surrounded by them.

89. If you could get children when they were 4 years old I'd have 12 kids by now.

90. Every once in a while I'm a little sarcastic ... just sometimes though.

91. I often forget where I park my car ... even when I'm at home (yes it's possible).

92. I think all men should experience a 'monthly visitor' the way women do.

93. My first massage was life changing. Now Wally asks if I need a ride home after when I get one.

94. My body shape is that of a pear ... that have been bowled over by a rolling pin.

95. I would love to get laser eye surgery but I've been told my eyes may not be good candidates - they were disappointed.

96. I am excited to see all of the rest of the big dreams that are hiding inside of me.

97. I am pretty sure song #6 on every CD is always good.

98. I really want to smoke a pipe someday (I love the smell of tobacco), but I'm sure if I ever do I will puke my guts out.

99. I learn best from making mistakes.

100. In the past few months I have been told I am 'so cute', 'so funny' and 'hilarious' more times than I can count, from several different people. I'm trying to deal with this in the most non cute, non funny, unhilarious way possible, but when I try I usually get told how cute I am.

I don't know about you but I'm already sick of me!

#33 - 100 Things you should know about me - Part 3

51. I keep phone messages that make me feel warm inside and happy. Currently I am saving a message from my birthday of my mom singing happy birthday to me (that' means a lot to me). And a message from my most favourite house keeping client who phoned to say she couldn't make it to the party because they were out of the country (I just love her!).

52. I feel like I have a soul connection with Sweet (my oldest dog) - I may have mentioned this, someone tell me if I have.

53. This year I bought myself the perfect birthday card and wrote myself a great note inside.

54. I notice everything around me, yet you could colour your hair and I wouldn't see it.

55. The average phone conversation I have with my mom is 3 minutes long every week or two. I love her.

56. I find it incredibly insane that the world puts so much faith in traffics lights and colourful signs.

57. When I was growing up a fat kid, the thing I would wish on every birthday, every star, every 'wish chip' (how appropriate), was to be thin and beautiful.

58. I still remember the first time I was called 'fat' by another kid ... I was 5 years old and had no idea what it meant.

59. I'm a chocolate maker - yummy, yummy ones too. In fact those I worked for whom I shared them with at Christmas couldn't figure out why I didn't sell them as a business venture.

60. I'd love to back pack across Europe - but only with someone who knew what they were doing. (Clearly this would not be something I'd do with Wally - no offense to him).

61. I love thunderstorms.

62. 9 times out of 10 I'm quiet because I'm thinking. The other time I'm trying my best to behave (Wally wishes these numbers were reversed).

63. My favourite season is fall, by a mile. Then spring, then winter, then summer. I hate sweating (as you may remember I have issues with sweat).

64. I love asking questions but don't always need the answers, I wish others understood this.

65. I think people, no matter who they are, just want to be understood and accepted.

66. I'm not someone who feels overly 'called' into my profession. I just kinda stumbled on it and most of the time am quite ok with that.

67. For me the hardest part about selling our house was giving up on a comfortable dream.

68. I work in a profession that allows me to be amazed by the 'little things' everyday. It's amazing really.

69. Someday I want to have a hammock. And drink a Margarita in it.

70. I'm terrified to have kids.

71. I believe everyone has a story, we just don't all realize it.

72. If I could do any job in the world I would be an inspirational speaker/writer.

73. I'm astounded when someone can't identify with another person. (This is why I am working so hard to understand this wrestling thing).

74. 'Tuesdays with Morrie' was a life changing movie for me - if you haven't seen it, find it and watch!

75. I am easily distracted, yet tend to get overly focused ... odd I know.
