25 Random Things About Me!!! (OMG!!!)

I was tagged by several friends at Facebook to reveal random things about myself. So, I decided to, also, include them here:

1. I'm the oldest of 7 (2 sisters and 4 brothers - yes, parents got a divorce/dad remarried).

2. I'm the oldest grandchild on my father's side of the family (there are over 40 grandchildren at last count - Grandparents were busy and had 12 kids)

3. I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. (See I'm a L.A. Woman)

4. I have never been married or been in a long term relationship. (I don't feel bad about it, but hoping someday)

5. I am the CRAZY Aunt. (I dance, play and joke around)

6. I am a Fat Loss Survivor. (It means what you think, I have lost weight)

7. My Best Friend is a BOY. (When we met, I was 18 years old and he was 19 years old)

8. I love to read romance novels - you know Harlequin Romance. (I was 12 when I read my first one)

9. I always wanted to experience being a blonde so I dyed my hair. (A very painful mistake)

10. My maternal grandmother is rumored to have been Jewish. (She was raised Catholic)

11. I speak Spanish. But sometimes if you ask me to translate, I can't do it. (Weird huh)

12. The only country I have traveled outside of the United States is Mexico. (Will be changing that soon)

13. I love dipping wonder bread in cherry flavored kool aid. (I haven't done it in years)

14. I google everything that I don't know. (Knowledge is Power - not kidding)

15. I trip and fall down all the time. (I'm very clumsy)

16. When I'm super busy and thoughts are running through my head, I actually talk out loud to myself. (It keeps me focused)

17. I pretty much like any food. (not kidding)

18. I have a hard time finding hats to wear. (I have a biggo head)

19. I can't draw. ( I cried as a child, wishing to be the next Picasso)

20. I have had one fight. (I punched a boy in the eye, in the fifth grade)

21. I take 3 hour naps. (Smart people take naps- not kidding)

22. I can't parallel park or reverse that well. (I have been known to jump of the car and have my passenger park the car)

23. I'm addicted to magazines. (Seriously, I can't throw them away, can't tear pages out,... yes, I have issues)

24. When I am at a decent weight, people say I look like Elizabeth Shue. When I am overweight, people say I look like Monica Lewinsky. (People please)

25. And, finally, I have never seen a true snow fall, let alone snow storm or driven in snow. (Weird huh)

What a nice list. Fun to learn many new things about you. I'll share item #26. Rosy is one of the nicest most generous people you'll ever meet.
ok #27. She's a loyal friend to the end.
#28. She has great taste in movies (similar to mine is why lol)
#29. Loves dance music, especially cheesy extended dance club editions so she isn't that clumsy really)
#30. Everyone that gets to know Rosy loves her.

Rosy--I LOVED reading this list! I'm am so with you on #'s 9,16,19!

I've been tagged a few times too on Facebook. You've inspired me to do mine (soon!)

So cool how you can really get a feel for a person from a list of 25 things!

@Amber -I have seen a little drizzle of snow, but never a snow fall. I need to see that soon.

@Paiano -Thank you, you are too kind! Appreicate it.

@MrsWhite -Thanks Janene! I'm finding that I'm not alone in the talking outloud department.

Love it girl. And some winter, come visit and see some snow! (no bread in kool aid though!)

Silicon Valley Diva said...

Great idea to post your list! I loved it.
Thanks for sharing. It's a great way to get to know each other better :-)

Meroko said...

We have a lot in common! Like #4, 5 (still working on 6), 12, 14 and (sometimes) 21.

Bread in cherry flavored kool-aid?

Thank you for sharing your list. I got to learn a little more about you today. ;)

Rosy...what a great list. I had so much fun writing mine and reading yours. Seeing all the random bits that go into making us all human beings.

Pretty nifty stuff, yes?

I'm working on my own list, posting 5 at a time, since it takes me a while to think.

#9. I spent three years teaching myself how to put my pants on both legs at the same time because I never wanted anyone to think I was just like everyone else, once I became ginormously famous.
