I already have my 100 things about me post written, have had for some time. Instead of just plunking it up on a page, since I’m at post 75, you will get them 25 at a time, because really? That’s just the kind of sweetheart I am. Also, I apologize for those who get this in their reader twice, this one should have comments working. Thanks to J at Just Beachy it does now.

1. I’m not getting any younger.

2. Black coffee is the answer. What is the question?

3. I used to be a clean freak.

4. Being a clean freak made me allergic to household chemicals.

5. I clean far, far less now.

6. I think I am in love with my dishwasher.

7. At age nine, Ass Burger Boy told me he would always live with me.

8. He’s still here.

9. I have been married twice.

10. I still love my first husband.

11. I like black licorice. Back off. This is not a character flaw. I’m old, okay? We didn’t have much candy in the olden days.

12. I have broken two toilets in my life by sitting on them wrong.

13. I was rather skinny each time.

14. I miss being skinny. Maybe not enough to deprive myself.

15. Flannel jammies make me happy.

16. Ditto goofy slippers.

17. As soon as I get back in the house, I put on my jammies.

18. I would like to have a bed and breakfast.

19. My mom died in 2005.

20. It still chokes me up. I miss her like crazy.

21. Even though I often hear her talking in my head.

22. Mostly she is making fun of me. It’s normal.

23. I graduated with honours from geek school the year Mom died.

24. Nobody wanted to hire a geezer geek.

25. My instructors wanted to work for me.

I have been tagged by Kim. This is what the weekend is for.

The Rules Of The Meme:


  • Each player makes a list of eight random facts/habits about themselves.
  • At the end of your list, choose eight people to to tag and list their names.
  • Leave them a comment on each of their websites to let them know that they have been tagged.
  • The people tagged will write a post on their own website about their eight things, post these rules, and tag eight others.
  • etc etc blah blah blah…

1. I hate shopping. Really, I don’t go out much at all, except to visit with friends.

2. I used to be a clean freak, but I’m feeling much better now.

3. I graduated with honours from a database program. Nobody wants a geezer on their IT team it seems.

4. I have the conviction about these things about me that nobody really wants to know them, or cares to read them. My friends are much more interesting than I am.

5. I have sworn that I will not attend another funeral. My mother’s funeral was so traumatic that I will have none of it, ever again. I have told my Grammie this, and she is okay with it, because I come to see her every chance I get.

6. I wish I had a secret Santa to buy me a kickarse digital camera. And I’m totally sick of filling my own darned stocking.

7. You can always tell the days I don’t feel like cooking supper. Those are the days I reward myself for shopping in the first place and bring home a frozen pizza. The pizza I make at home is killer.

8. I can’t wait until the snow is right to make a big, fat snowperson. I will dress it up with scarves and hats, and hope that the kiddies in the neighbourhood will play with me.

I’m not tagging anybody, because I don’t want anyone to feel obligated.
