Because Absolutely Nobody Asked OR 50 More Things About Me

Song Lyric of the Day:

If i ever forget / It was never so perfect / Such a boring story told / You make me feel so old / But confident

I Love You But I’ve Chosen Darkness / “Your Worst Is the Best

I used my first birthday as a blogger to post my first 100 things about me list. On my first blogging anniversary, I posted 50 more. Since I have nothing better to write about at the moment, here’s another 50 things about me list. Think of this as the 2007 edition.

  1. Despite my best efforts to resist, I kind of want to see the new Transformers movie.
  2. It sucks knowing that after this July, there will never be another new Harry Potter book.
  3. I can’t watch characters get injected with needles in TV shows or movies; I have to cover my eyes.
  4. I donate blood despite my queasiness about needles.
  5. It bugs me that I have only one female friend with whom I can watch horror movies; the others are all weenies.
  6. The last song I bought in iTunes was “Mama Said Knock You Out” by LL Cool J — I love that song. That was two nights ago.
  7. I hardly ever refer to anything as a guilty pleasure. If I enjoy it, I enjoy it. Why feel guilty?
  8. I almost fell off my chair when I heard a commercial for the new Fox show Don’t Forget the Lyrics. I immediately thought: Must. Get. On. That. Show.
  9. I need to take acting classes to pad my acting resume.
  10. I’m looking forward to my cool brother-in-law Ken taking me shooting sometime (new skill = something else with which to pad my acting resume).
  11. I’m trying to decide where I want to take a solo vacation this year since Rich is going on two trips by himself.
  12. My current favorite music video is “U + Ur Hand” by Pink. I think it’s mesmerizing.
  13. One of my friends cracks me up because she’s super-smart, eloquent, very put together — and a major fangirl.
  14. I’ve lowered my standards and started drinking skim milk at home since that’s what Rich likes.
  15. Rich and I realized we won’t be going on any exotic vacation in any foreign land for at least another year.
  16. If I don’t save the professor soon, I’m going to quit playing Dead Rising on XBox. I’m getting frustrated.
  17. I’m going to set up an Etsy shop to try and sell some of my photographs.
  18. I started writing a personal essay tonight. Hopefully, my writing buddies will help me polish it up so it’s submittable.
  19. I’m making a few extra bucks here and there by selling some of my old clothes at a local consignment store.
  20. The Break-Up was the single worst “comedy” I’ve seen in years — talk about mismarketed. Even doped up on painkillers after my sinus surgery, I didn’t laugh once.
  21. I won’t vote for Hillary Clinton if she gets the Democratic nomination even though I’d love to see a woman become president.
  22. I suck at emailing people back. At this point, I think it’s a hereditary condition.
  23. I’m still nowhere near being ready to become a parent.
  24. I used to devour books about supernatural and unexplained phenomena like the Bermuda Triangle, Bigfoot, and the Loch Ness monster.
  25. I also used to devour books about ghost stories and urban legends.
  26. Thanks to Netflix, I may very well never, ever set foot in a video rental store again.
  27. Jensen Ackles is giving Wentworth Miller a serious run for his money to claim the top spot on my Fantasy Second Husband© list. I mention this now since more than a week has elapsed since my last Jensen mention, the minimum required Jensen-free period I promised the spouse. (Photo courtesy of JensonRossAcklesUnlimited.)
  28. I’m currently watching season one of Supernatural on DVD during my nightly workouts.
  29. My recurring nightmare about a horrific car crash is back, although my insomnia is gone.
  30. I can’t bring myself to delete my grandmother’s phone number from my cell phone, even though she died over a year ago.
  31. I’m proud that my youngest cat, Yum Yum, acted in a locally filmed horror movie last year. He was awesome.
  32. I’m one of the most impatient people in the world, but I have the patience of Job when it comes to home improvement projects.
  33. I listen to ER repeats on TNT every morning while I work. Listening to the TV helps me tune out outside conversations. The fact that they’re repeats means I don’t have to pay attention; the dialogue becomes white noise.
  34. Listening to music while I work really distracts me because I end up trying to listen to the lyrics; I end up listening to instrumental music instead.
  35. The end is in sight for my credit card debt. Huzzah!
  36. My favorite bands to listen to on my iPod while I clean the house are Queen, Garbage, and Linkin Park.
  37. I’d love to see smoking banned in all public places throughout Knoxville, a la New York City.
  38. Seeing celebutards like Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, and Britney Spears in the news makes me happy I don’t have a daughter for fear she’d admire any of them.
  39. I hope Brent, my Brother From Another Mother, gets to move home soon.
  40. I have an older half-brother from whom I’m estranged.
  41. I’ve kept a plant we bought to stage our house for sale in Virginia alive for 2 1/2 years now.
  42. My friend, Caren, inspires me to be more creative. She’s the young, go-getter whippersnapper of our group.
  43. While I absolutely loathe doing cardio and ab work every night, I’m thrilled to finally see results.
  44. I sometimes get balloons from stores or restaurants for my son, Buster. I just don’t tell the employees he’s a cat (he’s even got his own balloon weight).
  45. I’ve christened my 10-year-old sofa Frankencouch on account of having to keep sewing fresh rips in the fabric shut.
  46. I often shout in my sleep and then pretend like it didn’t wake me up in the hopes Rich won’t acknowledge it. Of course, he always does.
  47. I wish I had the kind of face that makes a really short haircut possible.
  48. I can’t eat Skittles, Junior Mints, and other small candies in odd numbers. I have to eat them in pairs (hello, OCD).
  49. I hate having to pay for movies.
  50. I can’t take Rich’s word that the front and back doors are locked for the night; I have to check for myself.
