More Random Things...

I am really kind of liking remembering all the random things about myself! so here are a few more:

- I am the oldest of 5.

- Although my mother shutters at the thought, I LOVE instant chocolate pudding - not cook and serve!

- I love Oreos completely immersed in ice cold milk.... or with Corona beer (but not dunked).

- I totally believe that if a stuffed animal tells you their name or makes eye contact, you have to purchase them (my sisters totally get that one!)

- I have (proudly) owned a Brett Favre jersey since high school (and am blogging this while watching the packers and the cowboys- GO PACK!)

- I hate bananas...flavor, texture, anything about them, except their color.

- I once got lost on a bus in Nagasaki, Japan... who knew there were 3 #1 buses, all in Japanese!

- I once played a stork in a play (it was Aesop's fables - circa 1992!)

- I am really afraid this list could go on forever!

- The only entree I have ever ordered at the Cheesecake Factory (and I've been there close to a dozen times) is the Orange Chicken.... usually with Snickers Cheesecake (but sometimes that will vary!)

- The building of my first apartment after college was 95% occupied by people over 70...nice and quiet, but our neighbor died and we didn't even know it for weeks (remember that, maria!)

Oh, I could really go on with this.... but the Packers are now only down by 3 and I have to start concentrating on the game. Happy Randomness, Everyone!

Auntie Jill...

Well for those of you who want to know, my sister will be delivering Baby Tate tomorrow AM!!! We know this because as K says... Baby Tate is not cooperating! (He/She is breech). We do not know if we will be auntie/uncle to a niece or nephew, what the name will be, or anything else. Just that he/she will arrive tomorrow. Please say a little extra prayer for Amy, Marty and Tate. We are so excited that they get to join us in this adventure of parenting!

I'll post more when I know more... maybe even a picture of our little baby tate!

7 Random Things about me...

Since I have been tagged... here I go:

1. I lived in the same house while growing up (age birth to 18) but had 5 different bedrooms.
2. My goldfish were named Donny and Marie (yes, after the Osmonds) and I wanted to BE MARIE!! (not so much anymore....8 kids would do me in!)
3. My best friend growing up (rachel) and I call each other elephant ears... and we can't remember why!
4. In college, one of our stress relievers was to put drop ice cubes between the stairwells while aiming for empty cups. (and we WERE sober!)
5. If I am painting, moving, or heavily cleaning, I can drink beer at anytime of day.
6. I have a scar above my right ear from a metal ceiling fan in Nigeria.
7. The sound or sight (or really thought) of anyone vomiting makes me want to do the same, unless its my daughter or husband.

How's that for random!?!?!
