100 Things Divided by 4

Lots of people post the "100 things about Me" on their blog. That's a bunch of info to absorb in one sitting. Thus, I have decided to do the 100 in segments.....then combine them all at the end...so, for the next 4 days.....I will give you a few things you may not already know about me , dear reader !!

25 Things About Me - Part 1

  • I used to be a cop, and a damm good one. I rescued kids (and their mommies)from monsters.
  • Now I'm a computer nerd, and I'm much happier.
  • I grew up in Singapore.
  • I am obsessed with the weather and anything weather related.
  • I only like lettuce in a salad, not on a sandwich.
  • I love TEEVEE (blog post to follow)
  • I don't like even numbers, except for 16, which was Joe Montana's number
  • ^^^^ Obviously, I love Joe Montana....segue way...
  • My dad played Pro Football for the 49ers in the 60's
  • I still have the first pair of Vans I ever owned when I was 15, and boy do they stink!
  • Theodore Roosevelt is my favorite President.
  • Whenever I hear the word President the song "Peaches" plays in my head.
  • I wish I'd grown up to be a forensic pathologist. Death fascinates me.
  • I really wouldn't do anything for a Klondike Bar.
  • I stalk my local weatherman....ha!
  • I cannot remember life before the iPhone. Well I can, but I try not to.
  • I love Howard Stern, I know I know, but he's smart, and funny, even when he's obscene.
  • Hearing Kenny Wallace, Robin Quivers or Dolly Parton laugh makes me happy.
  • I used to have a HUGE crush on George Strait, then I grew taller than him, so oh well.
  • My favorite song is not by DMB. Shocker eh?
  • Charles Lindbergh stayed with my grandparents once when they lived in Liberia.
  • I wanted to be a veterinarian but didn't because I could never put a dog to sleep, even if I knew it had to be done. The guilt would eat me alive.
  • I never learned to scuba dive. Why? JAWS. And I'm a nervous snorkler.
  • I have never watched even one episode of Star Trek. Or Lost. Or a dozen other shows that all other nerds seem to love.
  • I love the news, I even DVR it if I'm not home. Yep, color me loser.

So that's my 25 for today !!!

Check back tomorrow for part deux !

My sister use to love the news too. She probably would DVR it as well, if she was alive today. hehe

I have been thinking of doing one of these lists again.

Can't wait for the NEXT 25!!! I love getting to know you better :)

Travis Erwin said...

Interesting facts even though I'm a Saints fan and a long time 49er hater.

GeekByMarriage said...

No Star Trek? A you pullin' my leg?

Monique said...

I've never watched Lost either!

Big Pissy said...

Verrrrrrrrry interesting!!!! :)

I should've done forensics, too. Love it! Blood and guts don't bother me, either, so I'd rock it.
I don't watch lost, either. Don't give a rats' ass about it.
I worked for a vet, and you definitely get numb to putting dogs (and other animals) to sleep. Plus, half the time it's just the nicer, more humane thing to do (rather than let them suffer).

Kim said...

Travis I love the Saints too - I really don't root for the 49ers anymore !! Just the Eagles because of Gregory, but the Saints are my #1 team !!!

And by popular demand...I am gonna do the next 75 THIS WEEK!!!

Thanks yall!!

I love this list!! You have some cool things on here - love that you used to be a cop. I also wish I could be a forensic pathologist but I don't have the stomach for it. Can't wait to read the rest!

And you should Fabreeze those Vans.. I can smell them from here.

Momza said...

Very fun list...love the lindberg connection--that's so rare. YOur granparents are probably very interesting people too.

Athomia said...

I, too, am weather obsessed...my nickname around here is "doppler girl." I could never do forensics, although I find it interesting...my sister used to be CSI.

Thanks for sharing.

I used to watch the news, but there is no good news anymore, so I just wait and read the paper. You have a good variety of likes and dislikes. I have not read a post like this before.

Karl said...

Great post. :)

I'm making you a Lettuce Sandwich for your birthday.

Manda said...

Just wanted to add (a little late) that I won't swim in the ocean. I totally understand the diving thing. Who knows what is under the surface?!?!
