100 Random Things About Me…50/50 Style (Part 2)

Continued from Part 1...in celebration of my 100th post (although this is now post #101), here is the rest of the list (riveting I know).
  1. In the last ten years, I have had six different jobs - thus, the need to keep busy.
  2. If I won the lottery, I would start my own travel consulting business or perhaps an all female construction company.
  3. I love thunderstorms.
  4. I have two tattoos and would like to get another one.
  5. I believe in speaking my mind, but also know when to keep my mouth shut.
  6. I am an Aries.
  7. I do not like Star Trek or Star Wars, but they are my husband’s favorite movies.
  8. I would be perfectly happy not owning a television, but could not live without my iPOD.
  9. I wish I could afford to only work 3 days a week and volunteer for 2.
  10. I spend more time complaining about my treadmill than I do actually using it.
  11. I love to read, but never seem to find the time.
  12. I’ve never been overly concerned with my weight, but can’t stand the size of my butt.
  13. I have written a children's book and haven’t told my friends or family.
  14. I love to cook for friends.
  15. I wish I’d stayed in touch with friends from high school and college.
  16. I love to sunbathe topless, but don’t often get the chance.
  17. I don’t always feel appreciated by my family or friends.
  18. My favorite color is blue.
  19. I like the fact that I have red hair.
  20. One of my dream vacations would be participating in a cattle roundup – just like in City Slickers.
  21. I don’t have the patience for scrapbooking, but like the concept.
  22. I am bothered by people that don’t stand up for what they believe in.
  23. I don’t like to be late for anything and don’t like to be kept waiting either.
  24. I love the smell of fresh cut grass.
  25. It bothers me when people don’t respond to e-mails or voicemail.
  26. I don’t like clutter. I wish my closets and basement were better organized.
  27. I love to travel – road trips, camping trips, scuba vacations. You name it, I’m there.
  28. I was a cheerleader in high school.
  29. My favorite job was waitressing.
  30. I will not swim in public pools. Having learned to scuba dive in one and seeing what’s down there - Gross!
  31. I cannot stand American Idol.
  32. I would like to learn how to downhill ski. Never mind, I hate winter.
  33. I don’t get stressed easily, but have difficulties in exercising patience with the commissioned sales people that I work with.

  35. I don’t understand disorganized people and am easily frustrated by them.

  38. French fries and gravy are my favorite comfort food.
  39. I’m allergic to horseradish, but still eat it in seafood sauce.
  40. My favorite sitcoms were Seinfeld, Friends and Will & Grace.
  41. I snore - loudly.
  42. I don’t like airplane landings and it especially bugs me when people clap when the plane has just touched down. What is the point of this when the plane is still hurtling down the runway?
  43. My first car was a baby blue Maverick with brown interior.
  44. I am bothered by all the negative over-sensationalized news reports.
  45. I don’t like horror movies.

a cattle round up eh? sounds fun. thunderstorms are amazing! nice start to the next 100!
You wrote a children's book?!?! I'm so jealous. That's one of my life's ambitions, but I don't know what I would write about.

Congrats on making it to 100! Here's to many more!

I'd love to do a cattle round up too, how fun!

Whoa!! Red Hair? Now my picture of you in my mind is completely wrong. Oh well. Just didn't picture the red hair. Awesome!

Get on Facebook, then you'll be back in touch with all your HS and college friends.
Brian - I love thunderstorms - especially watching them out over the Lake. Cool!

FG - Yes, I wrote a children's book; however it has yet to be published and even if it isn't, that's o.k. because I think it's good. Perhaps I get around to self-publishing it some day.

K13 - Wouldn't a cattle round up be fun? Yes, I'm a natural redhead and believe me between that and a name like Sharman (sounds like the toilet paper - Charmin), I suffered all the taunts as a child. LOL..

I think I might have you beat on the childhood taunts... I'm also a redhead plus my name is Beans! :s

Add to that a trilingual environment, and I think I got all possible teasing variations in English, Spanish and French! One original individual actually managed to combine the two (carrot jelly-beans?!)

My oh my... here I thought we had so much in common, but not only have you not read the Potter or Twilight series (I just discovered the latter this winter), but you don't like Star Trek or Star Wars?! sigh!

I soooo wish for 9 too! I'd enjoy spending most of my time doing environmental volunteering and working with kids...

As for number 16, just come to Spain, everyone does it here! ;o)
Cris - you did have it tough as a kid! Beans?? You poor thing.

I've taken so such heat for not reading those series that I am making promise to you that I will add them onto my list of "work" reading material.

Now, as for the Star Wars and Star Trek issue - I should have clarified that I have in fact watched EVERY SINGLE episode and each movie numerous time with my husband and although I enjoyed them the first time, by the sixth time, I've lost interest. I will say this however - I LOVE Captain Picard and Captain Kirk is Canadian, so I don't totally hate them.
