1. List 20 Random Facts About Yourself
  1. I always paint my fingernails on my ring fingers a different color than the other eight fingernails.
  2. I absolutely can NOT survive a single day without at least one cup of coffee. Just ask my coworkers. I forgot my coffee once and one of them moved Heaven and Earth to find me a cup!
  3. Pet peeves interest me. I like knowing what irritates other people.
  4. My clothes are organized first by style, then by color. Always have been!
  5. When I was in second grade, I vomited in the third grade hallway. I had Golden Crisp cereal that morning. I have not eaten Golden Crisp (or the similar Honey Smacks) since.
  6. I like Spaghetti-O's better cold or room temperature, straight from the can.
  7. My middle school aptitude test told me I would be a mortician.
  8. I am more easily embarrassed FOR someone else than I am for myself.
  9. I'm a firm believer in, "the best things in life aren't things."
  10. I first started listening to DMB in middle school because my crush liked them and I was obviously interested in anything he was. That and Bone Thugs 'n Harmony :o)  Dave stuck with me, Bone did not.
  11. Gnats disgust me.
  12. I often confuse the letters Q and G when typing.
  13. I secretly wish I had a dog. A bulldog. That doesn't pee in the house, poop in the grass, or drool or shed on my furniture. Highly unlikely.
  14. I stood in line at Kroger at midnight when the final Harry Potter book was released.
  15. I say envelopes like N-velopes.  Mike says it like ON-velopes.  I say coupon like Q-pon, Mike says coo-pon. I always thought I said coo-pon until I re-read this sentence out loud.
  16. I LOVE rings! (See photo above)  Mike thinks I look like a gypsy. I think I look like... AWESOME ;o)
  17. When I love a song, I listen to it on repeat all day, every day. Currently: We Are Young by FUN.
  18. I don't always wear deodorant. I don't sweat a lot nor do I have a bad body odor... at least I don't think I do!
  19. I love playing checkers!  I could literally do it for HOURS.
  20. I underestimate my abilities and have mediocre self-confidence. I need to work on this.
Stay tuned for 2. Describe 3 fears, and how they became fears.

I think you say things correctly and Mike needs to work on his pronunciation. ;) I also want you to know that that bulldog dream could become a reality if you find a non-drooler. They exist! I already want to buy him/her clothing... I don't always deodorize either. I'm not a big sweat-er either. Yay for us! Fun facts!
