25 things about me1 I LOATHE cooking. But I love to eat so I cook tasty things anyway.
2 When I do kickboxing workouts, I pretend I'm the Slayer. Not that I'm Buffy, but that *I* am the slayer.
3 The real reason I had my kids drug free is my intense fear of needles. 25 hours of unmedicated back labour ( and that was just the first one) was far better than a huge needle going into my back anyday.
4 The above is why I will probably never get a tattoo, even though I had one designed for me 12 years ago.
5 Because I'm hard of hearing in my left ear I prefer to communicate electronically than by phone.
6 Although we all know the good parents will listen to their kids' grievances, I don't have a lot of patience for the "he said, she said, LIAR LIAR LIAR" and I just won't listen to it.
7 I don't like poetry. Exceptt Gibran and Poe. Everything else, I would rather poke out my eyes than read.
8 I hate hate hate pro sports.
9 A good friend (male) keeps trying to get my boys to be interested in sports. I really need to firmly tell him we're HAPPY the kids are not so into sports.
10 I have never tried an illegal drug and am really not interested.
11 The list of things I would NOT give up for an iPhone is so short, I could count it all on one hand and have fingers left over. However the top one, being home with my kids, would be the one that creates a situation where I can' afford one.
12 I hate oatmeal, bananas, and raisins. I would only eat them to prevent my death by starvation.
13 I have a " thing" against Jetta drivers. Hope I didn't offend you.
14 I don't see why anyone would ever knit a sweater in pieces and sew it together. In the round rules!
15 I'm not sure how to rate my standards for what I let my kids read/watch. They are for sure looser than my husbands, in which case I will defer to his comfort level. I have friends that run the spectrum from very conservative to no censorship, and I probably fall at about the 70% toward liberal end.
16 I also loathe doing dishes. My family can attest as I "outsource" as much as I can through assigned chores, bribes, punishments or just being so busy outside the house on an evening I'm not there to do them. A working dishwasher is only second to an iPhone on the list of material things I want.
17 I can't keep powdered sugar in the house between birthdays or I will stress eat homemade chocolate frosting. It's like crack to me.
18 I consider the internet "cheaper than therapy" and use it in lieu of same.
19 I had an unpaid job as a rock concert photographer as a teenager. It came with a backstage pass. I was hit upon by Gene Simmons and Kip Winger, but was a good girl.
20 I started going grey at 17, and have dyed ever since. I do not plan to stop any decade soon!
21 I am a bit OCD about some things, like where the water pitcher gets set down. I will stop whatever I'm doing to "put things" right".
22 Right now I mostly think I look good. For the first time in my life. But not everyday.
23 Celebrity "crush"- Christopher Eccleston
24 Unless I am saying the Lord's Prayer, I will perform quite a bit in the way of verbal gymnastics to avoid referring to God in the masculine.
25 For #25, ask me anything I can answer, with the knowledge that two of my kids and many of the people I go to church with read here.
