Word FULL Wednesday!!!

I know I usually do wordless Wednesday’s but today is my 100th post!  So… I decided to do word FULL Wednesday instead.

C’mon…. I know you’ve just been waiting on pins and needles for this.  Since this is my 100th post, I decided to do my 101 things about me.  I can’t believe it’s been 100 posts already! Here we go!

  1.  I LOVE hugs.  I love to give them and I love to get them. I’ll even hug a total stranger.  What could be stranger than that?
  2. I try to be positive.  I’d rather try to positive and fail than try to be negative & succeed!
  3. I don’t like negativity.
  4. I hate being lied to.
  5. I’d rather be physically punished than lied to.
  6. My favorite beverage is coffee.
  7. My second favorite beverage is sweet tea (no lemon, good ol’ southern style)
  8. I do NOT like lemon in my tea.
  9. I really am not a fan of milk chocolate
  10. However… I LOVE dark chocolate. The darker the better.

  17. I love to read but feel like I never have enough time and feel guilty when I do.
  18. I love to talk (surprise there?)
  19. I talk with my hands and can be very dangerous if you standing within arm’s length when I am talking (not kidding).
  20. I have hazel eyes (brown/green variety).
  21. My eyes change color depending on what I wear.
  22. My eyes will also change color depending on my mood and I have had people tell me during the middle of a conversation “Did you know your eyes just changed color while you were talking?”
  23. Apparently the angrier or more excited I am, the greener my eyes are (Therefore when I cry my eyes are BLAZING green)
  24. I think I used to be addicted to Dr. Pepper.
  25. I have not drank a soda in like 3 years.
  26. I do not have a passport.
  27. One of my goals next year is to actually get around to getting my passport.
  28. I would love to travel to Europe and Japan.
  29. I would love to go to Africa or Austrailia for a “visual” safari (don’t want to kill anything)

  31. I have never read a Harry Potter book.
  32. I have never seen a whole Harry Potter movie.
  33. I have never ready any of the Twilight series books.
  34. My favorite book is The Stand by Stephen King.
  35. His other books scare the beejeezus out of me.
  36. I love David Sedaris books.
  37. I love Augusten Burroughs books.
  38. My first concert I remember seeing I went to see Kansas and they were the opening act for Black Oak Arkansas…(does that age me?)
  39. I used to love the series Six Feet Under… yes, mordid… I know.
  40. My daughter has us hooked on Dexter.
  41. My #3 was the first delivery my OB/GYN made at the hospital where she was born and he did it as a personal favor to us (his hospital wasn’t on our insurance).
  42. The fact that I could dowse for water scared me so badly that I have never tried to do it again.
  43. It also made me proud that I could do something my dad did.
  44. I love my family dearly and would do almost anything for them.
  45. I think I would seriously hurt someone who intentionally harmed one of my children.
  46. I have a bad temper but usually keep it in check,
  47. Because of my desire to keep the peace I often get taken advantage of.

  57. I have ZERO singing ability but love listening to other people sing.
  58. The extent of my musical ability is playing chopsticks on the piano.
  59. I have very small ears.  Seriously…like a baby’s size.
  60. No one believes this, especially hubby, but, I also have a very small mouth (but that does NOT deter my talking).
  61. I have TMJ so holding my mouth open  for long periods of time (dental appts) is very painful.
  62. I have sleep apnea and use a CPAP machine most nights even though my sleep apnea has improved greatly.
  63. I am allergic to nickel and therefore I don’t wear jewelry.
  64. The first time I got my ears pierced my ex-sister-in-law (who was not an ex at the time) used those big surgical needles to do it.  They got so infected that the whole ball of the ball earrings went through my ear!  YUCK…TMI, I know.
  65. I have a lisp and one (of my many) nicknames in school was Donald Duck.
  66. After my back surgery to remove a disc when I was 20, the doctor laughed at me because I asked if I was going to be shorter (made sense to me that if they removed something I’d be shorter!)
  67. The doctor DID however tell me I’d probably always walk with a limp.  I didn’t think I did until the other day someone asked me why I was limping… I thought I was walking the way I always do, so, maybe I DO have a limp and thought I walked normally?
  68. I had my first two children by natural childbirth.  The extent of my “painkiller” for #2 was a cold wet washcloth they gave me to clench between my teeth.
  69. I am a very sarcastic person by nature.

  71. I’m allergic to most antibiotics which can be a little hard when I’m sick.

  73. I am the shortest person in my family other than my mother.  All my sisters, brothers, daughters, husband and dad are all taller than I am.  (added – EXCEPT #1 – hahahaha, gotcha!)
  74. During my kid’s school tenure, I think I held an office for every club or activity they were in throughout elementary, middle and high school.  No one would ever volunteer and I always felt bad so I did it.
  75. I ran the time clock for most of the home Varsity Boys Basketball games the last two years that #2 was in high school.
  76. I was on the membership committee (for PTA) for my kids elementary school for 10 years straight.
  77.  I have a hard time saying no.
  78. I prefer watching high school basketball over college or pro basketball.
  79. I love romantic comedies.
  80. I really liked the Star Wars Trilogy but do NOT like Star Trek(I fall asleep every time I try to watch one but hubby loves them).
  81. I really do NOT enjoy camping.
  82. I camped out with two females friends on Ocracoke Isand in the 70’s and our tent almost blew over during the night.
  83. I love water but don’t necessarily like to swim.
  84. I love the sound of a babbling brook.
  85. I love the sound of waves crashing on the beach.
  86. I used to love going “jack rock” hunting with my aunt when she would visit from Florida.
  87. Even though my dad never graduated from high school I think he is one of the smartest men I know. He reads ALL the time.
  88. My mom went back and got her GED after I finished high school and I was SO proud of her for doing that.
  89. Math was my worst subject in school (I work in accounting, LOL).
  90. I have what I calling matching “zipper” scars, both front and back, straight up and down.
  91. I have a natural Cruella de Ville streak of gray in my hair.

  93. I hate when my kids get mad at me.
  94. I used to think I wanted to be a teacher.  Subbing 1 day for 2nd grade “cured” me of that.
  95. I really enjoy bowling but I’m not very good at it.
  96. I am good at skeet ball though.
  97. I really do not enjoy shopping for myself.
  98. I have a hard time controlling my spending when I’m buying for someone else.
  99. I’m a sucker for baby clothes, especially little girls clothes.
  100. I am near sighted in one eye and far sighted in the other (Is that like blind in one eye and can’t see out of the other?).
  101. I sometimes think I’m getting early symptoms of Alzheimers and it scares me.

      I like the pitter patter of rain but NOT the monsoonish kind or how it sounds on a tin roof that is DIRECTLY overhead. Tinkling – ok… jackhammer in the head.. not so much!

    I can’t believe you passed 100 already!! You are addicted! But I’m glad!!

    Great list. Did it take days to do it?? I love #34 & 35 because I’m like his stalker. Seriously, I’m in love with Stephen King. And his son Joe Hill. Which might be slightly creepy.

    I am also #1-11, #18,19,20,30,44,45,46,47,68 (although it was all 3 for me),69,71,77,78,79,84,85,93 & 98. We have loads in common!!

    Love your list,
    ♥Spot

      Thanks. Yes, I actually started on it a couple of weeks ago when I knew it was getting close and then forgot about it and then I’d add a few here and there and then last night I was looking for my wordless Wednesday picture to post and saw I already had 99 posts and I only had about 60 things on my list so I was like “Dang, it’s gonna be after midnight AGAIN before I get to bed!” LOL

      Looks like we DO have loads in common. Oh, the only reason #3 wasn’t natural is I had to have a C-Section. She was over 9 lbs and she wasn’t going anywhere if they didn’t TAKE her! (And I was due on the 17th and it was the 30th….) That ws the reason for the FRONT zipper scar, pelvic to belly button!

    Congrats on your 100th Peg,

    I can relate to a lot on your list as we have a good bit in common, Hazel eyes are a good thing ;^)

  10. I love lists like this ^_^. I’ve got TMJ too, I love Six Feet Under, and I’m a lover of dark chocolate as well!

    Thank you for sharing so much about your life and opinions on here – as always, I love reading your blog ^_^.
