16 Random Things About Me

from Facebook:
16 Random Things about Me (written in December 2008)
  1. I love recessed lighting, especially if the "cans" can be dimmed.
  2. I get bored in Paris.
  3. I love taking road trips with my husband.
  4. I would have been one of the pioneers and formed a wagon train if I had been born in that time period. I think I would have loved homesteading.
  5. I can barely tolerate little girls who scream.
  6. I would insert the Internet into my head if I could, or at least a really good search engine, even if it were a little bit risky.
  7. I want to call myself a writer and not smirk after I say it.
  8. I prefer white lights on Christmas trees, but colored lights on houses.
  9. I want to travel for my 40th birthday to a place where I do not speak the language *at all* and if possible to a place where I do not recognize their alphabet
  10. I love the view from my house, but sometimes I wonder what it's like to live on flat ground where one can walk out onto nice flat sidewalks.
  11. I always ask, "Where do they go the bathroom?" when watching things like balloon races, around the world plane tours, small boat regattas, and Times Square on New Year's Eve.
  12. If I say "I love you." I mean it, even if I say it often and seemingly to many people.
  13. I cried while watching the John Adams mini-series on HBO...several times. I wept when the states ratified the Constitution. I have a flag flying at my house (but I'm a Democrat! Ha!)
  14. I always plan for the worst thing to happen. Sometimes I need to remind myself that nothing bad has happened.
  15. I don't like chocolate that much, but add caramel or nuts and I might bite.
  16. I think envy is the greatest sin of all, and I rebuke myself whenever I am ensnared.
and a few more for good measure:
  1. I have always wanted to live in a 'flat' with a metal fire escape.
  2. I keep buying all of the tools I need to become a great artist, but have yet to complete an oil painting larger than 4"x4".
  3. I would label everything in my house/life if I didn't think that I might then be labeled OCD.
  4. I don't regret much, because I am genuinely thankful for the lessons I have learned, but I rarely forgive myself.
  5. I can remember being two years old very clearly.
  6. I hate unloading the dishwasher.
  7. I still have hopes of playing the piano fluently.
and now I have been self-indulgent enough for all of 2009. If you need to know anything else, just ask.
