100th Post!!!

This is insanity.  I know you're all freaking out right now.  Seriously.  100 posts.

I'm going to make this as self-centered as possible, and tell you 100 secrets about me.  Calm down.  We'll make it though together.


  1. I can wiggle my ears.  Almost everyone in my family can.  
  2. I absolutely hate chewing gum.  It freaks me out more than spiders.
  3. I sometimes want to wear headphones while I'm eating.  The sound of chewing, in general, makes me want to dig a hole and jump in.
  4. When I hear a song I really like, I can listen to it on repeat for hours at a time.  I usually sing a long, too.
  5. I don't like to play sports.  Except kick ball.  Kick ball is amazing.
  6. I'm a really solid sleeper.  I sleep through alarms, snoring, loud music . . . I've even slept through an earthquake.
  7. I've never caught a fish.
  8. As a child, my family moved a lot.  But some of the moves were just miles apart from each other.
  9. I'm not a good dancer.  Actually, that was being kind. I'm a horrible dancer.  Ha ha. 
  10. I can get along with almost anyone, if I put my mind to it.
  11. I could eat peanut butter and honey sandwiches every day of my life.  
  12. When someone would ask me what I wanted to be when I 'grew up' I would always respond, "a ballerina."  Too bad for pesky #9.
  13. I read every Nancy Drew book I could get my hands on. I think I've almost completed the series.  Which is saying something, considering there are like 200 books.
  14.  I find excessive use of exclamation points to be irritating.
  15. If you ask me how you look, I'll tell you what I sincerely think.  
  16. When I was younger, I was always thought of as shy--but I've never considered myself to actually be shy.
  17. I fall down, a lot.  I am super clumsy.  
  18. I love singing publicly.
  19. Sometimes, I google my name for fun.  And then my husbands.  
  20. I love Brittney Spears' line of perfumes.  I think they all smell magical.
  21. I don't like pizza that much.  Unless it's barbecue chicken.  Then it's heaven-sent.
  22. I can be pretty gullible at times.
  23. I'm the worst bowler I've ever met.  Seriously.  My high score is like 54, or something.
  24. I love McDonald's chicken nuggets.  They are the best nuggets in their class.
  25. I love everything Star Wars.
  26. I don't remember many specific details from my childhood.  But, I do remember the night my baby sister was born.  I was two.
  27. I think I'm a better editor than a writer.
  28. I don't take personality tests.  I already know what I'm like.
  29. I hardly ever return library books on time.  
  30. Calling a stranger on the phone frightens me more than speaking to a large crowd.
  31. I'd rather be in the passenger seat than the driver's seat.
  32. I still have my wisdom teeth.  In my mouth.
  33. My favorite vegetable is squash.  I love summer squash.
  34. I know I really loved a movie if it made me tear up.  
  35. My middle name is my mothers':  Michele.
  36. I don't care about shoes.  But I do love accessories.  Well, earrings.  I love earrings.
  37. I have to make lists everyday, or I worry that I'll forget to do something.  
  38. I'm bad with numbers.
  39. I worry about everything. 
  40. I can brush my teeth and put on my pajamas at the same time.
  41. I am fashionably late to almost everything.
  42. I used to feel weird just giving out my hugs.  But, now I feel like a hug is not a thing to waste.
  43. I am a perfect hour glass.  
  44. And I feel kind of braggy for just writing that.
  45. I'm really slow getting ready sometimes.  But I hate being rushed in the morning.  I figure I'm going to have to live with whatever I look like for the rest of the day, and I want to be happy with it.
  46. Sometimes my facial expressions don't match what's going on inside my head.
  47. I'm very good at pretending.
  48. I go to bed early, and wake up late.  I love sleeping.
  49. I love learning.
  50. My group of friends has changed very little since high school.  And one here, subtract one there, but other then that, my best friends three years ago are my best friends now.  
  51. I don't like milk.
  52. I don't like to make goodbyes a big deal.  I prefer "see ya later"s.
  53. I think curly haired children are the cutest of all the children.
  54. I draw stars a lot.  And sign my name on everything.

  62. I have an inquisitive personality.
  63. I hate to be categorized.
  64. I get embarrassed pretty easily.  But I get over it super fast.
  65. I'm not posting things like "I've never done . . ." because I'm not dead, yet.  
  66. I read very fast.
  67. I love real life stories.  People fascinate me.
  68. I hum in public places.
  69. And sometimes sing out loud.  On accident.
  70. I've never worn a watch or bracelet consistently.  I don't like how they feel.
  71. My kitchen has to be clean at all times.
  72. But not the rest of my house.
  73. I have a terrible sense of direction.
  74. I can't follow football.
  75. I always snooze my alarm.  In fact, I set it earlier than I need to wake up, just so I can snooze.
  76. I bite my fingernails.
  77. I love reality t.v.
  78. I was never into Pokemon, but I say Picachu every time I sneeze.
  79. I was born in Huntington Beach, CA.

  81. I am always wearing at least a little bit of makeup.  
  82. My husband is the perfect balance for me.
  83. I don't hate any genre of music.  I think each has positive aspects.
  84. If someone is being unkind to me, I tell them.  I don't let things fester.
  85. My favorite condiment is BBQ sauce.
  86. I play the violin, viola, piano, and I sing.  I wish I was better at each of these things.  
  87. I don't buy music very often.  But, when I do, I love it.
  88. I confuse my right and my left.
  89. I don't like spicy food.  I think it ruins flavor.
  90. Shrimp kind of grosses me out.
  91. I am the oldest of three children.  And a little bit bossy.
  92. I am not a fan of cheesecake.  
  93. I'm a huge procrastinator.
  94. I rarely wear yellow.
  95. Disneyland is my favorite place in the entire world.
  96. I think people are a lot more attractive when they smile.
  97. I log into blogger more than I log into Facebook.
  98. I still think Twitter is kind of dumb.
  99. I wish kittens would grow up into puppies.  Life would be so much better.
  100. I love my family more than anything in this world.  Yep.  Anything.

Ana Paula said...

Ha! I love number 15! Some people think it's rude but those who actually take time to know me think it's awesome. 96... my dad always told me that I needed to smile more often because it made me look prettier. He was totally right. I SO agree in a lot of these, it's funny!

(I love using exclamation marks, 14 kinda hurt. Ouch.)
