50 Ways to Leave Your Lover

Now that I have your attention, 50 random things about me and my life. Some were secrets until now, some were not...

  5. I think I've developed a blog crush on someone (see #3)
  6. I am happily married
  7. I've never tried any illegal drugs
  8. Between age 17-28 I probably went to 150 concerts
  9. Since age 28 I've only been to approximately 5 concerts (2 of them were Peter Gabriel)
  10. I'm jealous of my sister's hair
  11. I don't like to be in the sun for long periods of time
  12. I have a history of migraines
  13. Of the 3 girls, I am the rock of my family
  14. Growing up, I have had 2 cats (Ginger, Casper), 3 dogs (Barron, Elmo, Jordan), 1 hamster (don't remember the name) and 1 bird
  15. I hate birds as pets
  16. I don't tolerate alcohol well

  29. I try to go to church every Saturday
  30. I hate pretentious people
  31. I know way too much about my former boss's sex life
  32. I think I'm a great lover
  33. Sometimes I feel guilty that I landed a job working from home for a lot more money while the majority of my former office mates are still working at that pit. Sometimes I don't.
  34. I immediately retract and or flee at the first sign of rejection
  35. I read too much into things
  36. I've been in one car accident
  37. I feel VERY blessed
  38. I was depressed when I found out that I was pregnant 6 months after I got married
  39. My family is the best thing that has ever happened to me
  40. I once broke someone's heart (or so he claimed)
  41. I've had my heart broken once
  42. I've never broken any bones
  43. I don't like broccoli
  44. I try to be a positive person
  45. Sometimes I'm not as laid-back as people think
  46. I think my friend Anne's husband only married her to stay in the U.S.
  47. It makes me a little sad that I'll never learn to play piano or guitar as well as my husband
  48. I love movies
  49. I once had an exboyfriend write me poetry all the time...I cringed each time I read it because he was a horrific speller
  50. I usually hate talking about myself

Anybody else wanna give it a try?'s very therapeutic.

Did it when I started blogging last year, though it's nowhere near as interesting as yours.

Blog crush? For the last time, Minty, you must get over me! We are not destined to be together, due to the fact that I cannot stand female genitalia! Move on and rebuild your life, woman, for it cannot and will not happen!

"Just slip out the back, jack
Make a new plan, stan
You don’t need to be coy, roy
Just get yourself free
Hop on the bus, gus
You don’t need to discuss much
Just drop off the key, lee
And get yourself free"

...jolly good, that...:)

Hey mint chutney this made great reading. The fact that you know so much about yourself or did so much introspection to come out with this list is amazing. It has set me thinking hmmmm..............

Number 3, yes, I know. I once fell for a boy who in the course of a sentence said "intelligentsia is" instead of "intelligentsia are." He was the love of my life :)

I knew that loss in the spelling bee would be the end of my love life. Damn !

And Minty, you have created quite a meme here, I hope you realise !!
