  1. I am 36 but I pass for mid-20s all the time
  2. I used to play video games – RTS, RP, and FPS
  3. I have played: Dark Age of Camelot, WoW, and EQII. I also liked Starcraft, Diablo, and CounterStrike
  4. I own 2 Boston terriers – Todd and Zoey, but Zoey might be on her way out if she doesn’t shape up
  5. I used to rock climb, but only in the gym. I’m ok: V2+ was about my max.

  14. In the winter, I take a bath every night

  27. I’m particularly enthralled by all things Disney… World. I wouldn’t want you to picture me as one of those girls who wears a Mickey sweatshirt and buys everything Disney related. I just love being at Disney World and the way it makes me forget that there’s an outside world.

  1. Hoot! I live for the weather channel during the construction season, but in the early morning, after I’ve waited 9 minutes for weather on the 8’s, that damn music puts me to sleep. So I wait another 9 minutes…

    And I hate Scrabble. Cat, Bat, At, Sat, Rat, Gnat and Mat are about all I can manage.

  2. I’m afraid my pride will not allow me to play for the years it would take to move beyond monosyllabic words.

    (See? I even had to break out “monosyllabic” just to make myself feel better!)

  3. You should totally change the one point about coming in second in fantasy football last season…or add the fact that you won this year.๐Ÿ™‚

  4. In “creepy ways in which the internet connects you to very similar people” news: I also have a son named E(lliott), who was born a year and a day before your second baby.

    I also think “And Out Come the Wolves” is pretty awesome, though apparently Tim Armstrong is a Nazi now or something? That would make me sad.

    Once you get into the running stuff we have nothing in common, but the first few facts are pretty cool.๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I love The Weather Channel! I used to like how the computer voice would say, “Your local forecast, accurate and dependable.” Then, apparently realizing they’re also forecasting in Minnesota where weather forecasting is anything but accurate and dependable, they dropped that part. I love Scrabble but I can’t play it because I get too panicky trying to think of words I know when I’m not playing Scrabble.

  6. Love Scrabble! Do you have an iPod, iPad, iPhone? Words with Friends? Super fun! and I can so relate to this: “I have two sons and no, weโ€™re not sad about it and not trying for the girl. At least, not yet.” OMG I can go on and on and write a whole blog post about this! I have 1 son but my family (and husband’s family) is ALL male. Yeah, I hear stupid comments one too many times!๐Ÿ™‚

  7. I’d love to say that I’ve found “my blogger mate” in you, but boy, could we be more different! Really, this is probably the first time I’ve found a blogger whom I’ve found so different from me, and actually LIKE her :))!!! If you put NOT in all your DOs above and vice versa, that’s me!
    Ok, I better stop now. Starting to not make any sense. But anyhow, you’re awesome!

  8. You say cheese like its a bad thing…
    I love the fall as well. When I lived on top of my mountain in West Virginia I wouldnt even go across the state line into Maryland- family had to come visit me. We live in Ga now and I hate the lack of REAL seasons.
    I’m completely with you on the hair bands!

  9. Hey, I’ve kissed the Blarney Stone – it really is SO cool. And of course we bought the photos and the t-shirts to prove it. HaHa
    It was on our honeymoon so it made it all the more special. If you ever get to go to Ireland, you will really love it! =)

  10. I’m mid 30’s also and people always think I’m early 20’s! I guess it will come in handy when we’re 80, right? And armadillos ARE the cutest!
