My list

November 16th, 2006 at 12:11 pm

Yes, Iím jumping on the bandwagon.

1. Iím really annoyed because I typed this all out once but have no idea where it went.

2. I donít mind doing laundry.

3. The first car I bought by myself was a stick shift and I had never driven one. I couldnít afford an automatic.

4. I majored in Accounting because I couldnít think of anything else to do and I wanted to make sure I could get a job.

5. I feel guilty when my boss praises my work because my job is EASY and I spend most of my time on the Internet. But I donít want any more responsibility.

6. I spent 15 years slaving away putting myself through college, working long hours, getting raises and promotions, getting an MBA and moving 1000 away from family and friends for a job opportunityÖand all I want now is to be a sahm.

7. DH is my second husband. I met my first husband when I was 19, we married when I was 23 and separated 2 years later. There was nothing wrong with him, he was a nice guy I just didnít like being married. My DH now is A LOT like my first husband.

8. I need to lose 17 lbs which kills me because I was always thin. I am now on the South Beach Diet.

9. When I was third or fourth grade I would write out the lyrics to Kenny Roger songs and Ďsellí them to my father for a quarter. He was such a good sport sometimes!

10. I moved out of my house when I was still in high school to escape an abusive stepfather. I never forgave myself for leaving my 2-year-old sister there. Thankfully my mother finally got rid of him when my sister was still too young to know what was going on.

11. I RARELY cry. My mother once called me Ďcoldí because I showed no emotion at my grandmotherís funeral. I have known DH for about 9 years now and he has only seen me cry 2 or 3 times.

12. I donít really have any hobbies. I like to read when I get a chance but thatís not very often anymore. I like to read mindless drivel Ė but not romance or science fiction.

13. My favorite food is popcorn with lots of butter and salt. (No wonder why I need to lose weight)

14. I have never voted, Iím not even registered. (Oh, Iím steeling myself for the barrage of hate that is going to generate!) I never tell people that because I know itís shameful. I donít even know who ran in the last election. When people start talking about politics my eyes glaze over and I tune out. I just canít seem to get interested. I figure if I voted Iíd just be going in and randomly picking names. What good is that?

15. When we had a United Way campaign at work I chose to give my time rather than money (I was here at 5:30am one morning to make breakfast sandwiches to sell for the breakfast sale). Iím pretty sure the lady who processes payroll thinks Iím cheap because I didnít make a bigger donation.

16. Iíve lived in 5 states: New Hampshire, Maine, Virginia, Maryland and Tennessee.

17. We moved every 2 years until I was in high school.

18. My first boyfriend was black and I had to hide it because my stepfather is a racist. Which I always thought was odd because he is Iranian and has a bit of a darker complexion. I never told my boyfriend why I didnít invite him over because I was ashamed.

19. We still co-sleep with my 2-year-old son and NO, I DO NOT THINK THAT IS WEIRD. I use attachment-parenting methods to raise my son and he is turning out just great thankyouverymuch.

20. I HATE going to the dentist. Thankfully I have good teeth (knock on wood).

21. On our honeymoon, DH and I went to Amsterdam, Barcelona and drove down the coast of Italy.

22. Iím a disaster in the kitchen. I can barely boil water. I read recipes and sometimes donít understand the terminology so I donít know what it is Iím supposed to do. I feel like an idiot. (What the hell is braising anyway?)

23. About 10 years ago I passed the CPA exam but never bothered to get my license.

24. I hardly ever listen to music or watch movies. The last movie I saw was Walk the Line on HBO and I was disappointed.

25. Iím usually quite a loner but always say Ďyesí when asked if Iím a Ďpeople person.í

Whew, that was difficult!!! But sort of cathartic in a way. Iíve really enjoyed reading everyone elseís lists.

    We have a lot in common.....I delete things for no reason, I took accounting and enjoyed it--then worked for an accounting firm as a secretary/report writer. I don't mind doing laundry, and I enjoy driving a stick shift. I, too, lived in Tennessee for awhile and I LOVE popcorn. Think we were separated at birth?

    Braising is cooking something for a long time at a low temperature, like 8-12 hours at 225 or 250, so it is completely fall aparty and tender. Tough cuts of beef are great for braising. Very similar to crockpot cooking only you do it in the oven.
