Another MeMe.... hey, at least I'm posting!

Another day, another MeMe...

Here's the rules:
  • link to the person who tagged you
  • post the rules on your blog
  • write six random things about yourself
  • tag six people at the end of your post
  • let each person know they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog
  • let the tagger know when your entry is up

I don't know that I have six people who regularly read this blog, so whoever reads this, you're it!

I did not touch a drop of alcohol until I was 20. I had just joined a sorority and wanted to fit in with the cool girls (I know, I know... peer pressure at its worst). I'm not one to dip my toe in, so I dived into vodka headfirst. I had at least two mixed drinks and about 8 lemon drop shots. I was hammered! Eventually we made our way to the bar, where I preceded to thoroughly embarrass myself. When my watcher wasn't looking out for me, I drifted onto the dance floor, to perform what I like to call Fast Dance to a Slow Song. Use your imagination. I guarantee it was worse.

I often eat foods I don't like, because I think I should, and because they are healthy and good for me. Examples: cottage cheese and yogurt. I hate the texture of the first and the taste of the second. Yet they are staples for breakfast.

I caused a wreck in high school but I didn't realize it until hours later. My first car was a restored 1976 Camero... and my restored, I mean the paint and interior were restored, not the engine. The blasted thing used to shut off in the midst of left-hand turns. One morning I was attempting to turn left onto the road that leads to my high school, and the car cut off mid-turn. Embarrassed and angry, I was so focused on getting it started that I didn't notice the three car pileup behind me. Oops!

I like cooking in theory better than in practice. Cooking stresses me out. I'd rather eat out and have someone else do the dishes.

If I could be on one reality show, it would be the Amazing Race. However, I could not take my husband, as death and mayhem would erupt when we were given our first challenge. We can't even agree on the directions from our house to Walmart, much less navigate a foreign country. We'd be the couple that you swear is going to get a divorce once they get home. It would not be pretty.

I really, really, really want to be a good dancer. And I will never, ever, ever, be a good dancer. Think William Hung as a dancer. Sigh.

Now it is your turn!

MeMe time!

I stole this one from Sam! I needed some inspiration and here it is.

1. I’ve come to realise that my butt: is attractive to my husband. I have no idea why. It has enough dimples that it resembles cheese. AND it is flat! Thanks, mom.

2. I’ve come to realise that when I talk: my husband frequently does not listen. "Uh huh... right... yes... What?"

3. I’ve come to realise that if I love someone: I am very loyal and fiercely protective of them.

4. I’ve come to realise that I need: to get my weight under control and get healthy. I'm not getting any younger.

5. I’ve come to realise that I’ve lost: my regrets. I'm finally viewing my past as a life lesson and not something to grieve about and wish I had done differently.

6. I’ve come to realise that I hate it when: people make racist or intolerant remarks. Tattoos are not gross. Piercings are not gross. They don't define who a person is. They just decorate the package.

7. I’ve come to realise that if I’m drunk: you better find out what is wrong with me. I haven't been drunk in years! I don't really drink... It is expensive and a waste of calories in my opinion - so says the girl who broke down and had a pina coloda at the mexican restaurant tonight.

8. I’ve come to realise that money: is important, and anyone who tells you it isn't is rich.

9. I’ve come to realise that my mother: is bossy beyond belief, but man, she gets things done! Oh, and the things that annoy me about her are the things I do to other people. Go figure!

10. I’ve come to realise that I’ll probably always be: a big girl, and I'm ok with that.

11. I’ve come to realise that I have a crush on: Gev from So You Think You Can Dance. Sex-ay!

12. I’ve come to realise that the last time I cried was: last night, thinking about my grandfather. He's not going to be with us for much longer.

13. I’ve come to realise that my cell phone: is such a waste of money.

14. I’ve come to realise that when I wake up in the morning: I'm always tired. I need to go to bed at a decent hour!

15. I’ve come to realise that before I go to sleep at night: I must always read something to wind down before bed, and I have to have my fan on for noise. Oh, and I can't live without my body pillow!

16. I’ve come to realise that right now I am thinking about: my husband! He's the best. Even when make stupid mistakes, he never gives me a hard time. He just tells me that we'll work it out and moves on.

17. I’ve come to realise that babies: may not in my immediate future.

18. I’ve come to realise that when I get on livejournal: I don't get on livejournal.

19. I’ve come to realise that today I will: inevitably stay up too late, be tired tomorrow, take a nap after work, and start the whole vicious cycle over again.

20. I’ve come to realise that tonight I will: take a nap, get some dinner with the husband, and watch a little tv before bed. It's not exciting, but it makes me happy!

21. I’ve come to realise that tomorrow I will: try to catch up at work, and be happy that it is Friday!

22. I’ve come to realise that I really want to: be a better version of me.

23. I’ve come to realise that who is most likely to repost this is: I have no idea, but let me know if you do so I can read it!

24. I’ve come to realise relationships: are work, but the work is very rewarding.

25. I’ve come to realise love: makes all the other stuff bearable.

26. I’ve come to realise my best guy friend: is my husband. He knows me far better than I give him credit for.

27. I’ve come to realise my best girl friend: is an amazing person who came into my life just when I needed her. She changed my life for the better just for knowing her, and in general is one of the best people I know. I love you, Angel!

28. I’ve come to realise food: will always be my downfall. If I could learn to ignore my cravings and start viewing food as just fuel, I'd be better off.

29. I’ve come to realise that when I was a girlfriend: I played games. Those games never worked out the way I wanted them to.

30. I’ve come to realise girls and boys: grow up to be men and women? LOL. I'm not sure how to answer this one!

31. I’ve come to realise over the summer: my overall attitude and demeanor improves because of the sunshine. Thank goodness I'm now back in the land of perpetual sunshine!

32. I’ve come to realise heartbreak: doesn't last forever. In the midst of your grief, you think you will never get over, but you do move on.
