Facebook and those damn 25 things...

I'm sure most of you reading this have a Facebook account. 

And, not only do you have Facebook accounts, but I'm sure by now, most of you have been tagged in that crazy 25 Random things I don't know about you game that's been going around the past couple of weeks.  

It's so huge that even the NYtimes did an article on it yesterday!  

Here are mine:

1- I have a love/hate relationship with NYC. I love the food, shops and people. I hate the rents, subway and people.

2- I believe all stuffed animals have feelings. Even the ugly ones.

3- I think all women could use a little make-up. It's not really that big of a deal to put a little effort in.

4- I like getting deep in on the issues both personally and politically.

5- I wanted Oliver to be a girl. When we found out the baby was a boy I cried, even though in my gut I knew all along he was a boy.

6- Pat Benatar's "We Belong" always gets me going.  
Check out her video... it is SO GODDAMN HILARIOUS!

7- S'mores are my all time #1 favorite food. To prove it, we even served them at my wedding.

8- I would move to the Greek Islands in a New York second if my husband was up for it.

9- After reading #8 you should know that feta, olives, tomatoes, olive oil, bread and red wine are things I cannot live without.

10- After ordering out for 4 years, I have rediscovered I am a fabulous cook. Every night as I cook up dinner I amaze myself.  You should see the eggs I make in the morning now. 

11- I think my husband is the best person I know.

12- If I could get into Oliver's crib with him I would.

13- I think doing someone's laundry is the nicest thing anyone can do for you.

14- I will do ANYTHING for a back rub.

15- I loved summer camp and will be thankful for the cult like experience for the rest of my life.

16- I have a full, written out, blown out, financial plan so I'll know exactly what to do with the 25 million dollars I will win one day from the New York State Lottery.

17- My husband made me leave a casino once because I was getting so upset I was losing money. He said I'm never allowed to gamble again because I fundamentally don't understand the odds are against me. 

18- I love, love, love, to read. But I hate, hate, hate chick-lit.

19- Oliver doesn't look like me or Brett. I spend a lot of time wondering who it is he looks like.

20- I'm a tank top, lip gloss and moisturizer junkie. I firmly believe you can't have enough of all three.

21- I hate it when grown women smell like baby powder or wear pigtails. If you're over 18 seriously grow up.

23- You can never stop learning. The day you decide you know it all you've become a moron.

24- I am the worlds best sleeper who can cuddle up to almost anything and make it snuggly.

25- My stuffed animal dog just winked at me.

  2. I read that too- crazy!!

    I refuse to do it though--- every time I do a list like that I feel like a throw away so many potential blog posts!!

    (And I SOBBED when I found out both boys genders. In the room. And then felt like the worst mother ever for the next 4 months. And now, I can't imagine life without my boys!)

  3. I am so glad that I am not alone, the day we found out I was having a boy I broke down sobbing in the middle of the baby section of Target. While tears and snot flowed off my face I claimed my husband was "plotting against me"...BTW I was a little prego-crazy in case you couldn't tell ;-) It took me a couple of days to warm up to the idea of having a boy and now I LOVE IT, and secretly I want more boys. So Glad to know that I am not alone. I too feel guilty that I ever felt the way I did about having a boy, let alone going so far as to make a scene at Target of all places over it. I laugh at it now. I think telling the story is my way of attempting to make amends to my DS.

  4. Getting in a crib sounds kinda cozy!

  5. Ahhh, a fellow lip gloss sister. Yay!

    Love the Benetar video. I can see the director now "hey, let's hang up some sheets and put you in them!"

    And what's with Gallum from Lord of the Rings as her drummer? I didn't know he played....


Comments make my day!
Don't be shy!
