75 More Things About Me

I did this 3 years ago so let's see if I can come up with 75 different things to entertain you....or bore you, whatever.
1. The only salad dressing I like is Honey French from Wal-mart (and no it is NOT the same thing as Catalina)
2. In elementary school I wore this cheapo bracelet for like over 2 years without ever taking it off thinking I could get into the Guinness book of world records
3. I never thought I'd be a dog person but I now I am.
4. I have a collection of Weilware, handkerchiefs, silver things, decorative tin canisters, and tablecloths. This has just recently occurred thanks to antiquing with co-workers.
5. I LOATHE grocery shopping and will do it as fast as I can and pretend I am on super market sweep when I have to.
6. If I am at Wal-mart when it is crowded I have a terrible urge to just elbow people and knock them down. I try to steer clear of there especially around holidays.
7. I do not mind doing laundry or folding it but I don't like to put it away.
8. I like to keep the blinds and curtains open but I also don't like to wear clothes so those two things don't work well together.

15. I named our Magnolia tree in our front yard Maggie.

19. I want to drive our cars until they won't drive's getting close.
20. I blogstalk WAY too many people.
21. I don't believe in dinosaurs.
22. I do believe in ghosts.
23. When I ask Ryan about random topics if he doesn't know the answer I tell him to lie and tell me something and just pretend he knows. But he usually does know or he's a good liar.
24. I've never movie hopped, I'd like to but I think I'd feel guilty.
25. This is my favorite joke since I was a kid: A bear went to the doctor and the doctor and said "Oh my you have a potato growing out of your ear!" The bear was shocked and said "but I planted corn!" I can't tell that joke without laughing...I know.....I'm dumb.
26. I learned how to type really fast my freshman year at OC thanks to Instant Messenger.

37. I don't like it when I smile at other people and they don't smile back.

44. I have never smoked.

47. I can never remember if Xmas is on the 25 or 26th though.

So you'll let me know, right? OK good, thanks!
