one o one

  1. My idea of a "cat nap" is at least 3 hours long.
  2. If I drink even the smallest amount of caffeine I'm up all night.
  3. I lift one leg up while applying mascara.
  4. I have vowed to give up most of my favorite TV shows.
  5. Come fall line-up I'll probably most definitely regret this decision.
  6. There is way too much filth on TV and I've become desensitized by it.
  7. I get the Sunday night blues. Every. Sunday. Night.
  8. When I'm scared, nervous, or anxious I pull out my eyebrows and eyelashes.
  9. I only like green bananas.
  10. Mark Rothko is my favorite American Artist.
  11. I tweaked my back a couple weeks ago and the pain is slowly getting worse.
  12. But I'm too scared to call the Dr. {insert Lindsey and Gob's chicken dance}
  13. If Arrested Development was still on TV, I would not ever give it up.
  14. My hubby shaves his legs and I love it. A lot.

  22. I just checked our bank account and we are exactly $699,000 short of owning it.
  23. Sometimes not saying anything at all is the best possible thing.
  24. Learning that the hard way is the worst possible thing.
  25. I've unexpectedly made new friends this year.
  26. My life has been blessed enormously because of them.
  27. Still, perhaps nothing can replace my oldest friends.
  28. Because they've seen me do stupid stuff and seen me naked and have possibly seen me do stupid stuff while naked.
  29. They are my friends anyway, wherein lies the beauty of it all.
  30. My relationship with Christ is without a doubt the most important thing in my life.
  31. I do not appreciate Al Roker's humor.

  37. My new shoes are giving me the biggest baddest blisters and I don't care because they're beautiful.

  39. If ever a mother, I predict I will be the biggest emotional disaster the world has ever seen.
  40. Which is why I try not to think about it much.
  41. I think about one or both of my grandmother's everyday.
  42. I shave my fingers and toes.
  43. As much as I try to hide it, I'm a true introvert.

  50. I have not eaten fast food since December 31st, 2008.
  51. I don't miss it at all.

The P*dunc's said...

mmmmm....carni food! I think I love it so much because my parents never took me to the carnival and NEVER let me buy the food there. Same with gas stations and food. Yes, I have problems and see a therapist because of it.

You, my friend, are too funny.
Good luck Brad!

LOVE every single one of these! I am right there with you on the Friends re-runs. I watch it everyday and still laugh like it is the first time I have seen it.
Oh and Rob is at the Lotoja right now with his brother. I should have told him to look for you!!

gina bina said...

Mindi, Vietnam in '97.

That actually makes me sound like a war vet..."When I was in 'NAM!"

Two Wheeler said...

Ames and Jer-da-me said...

It is funny to read about someone you have known all your life....yet never knew how much you had in common. You crack me up.
