At a loss as to what to write here, I've left it blank for a while. What would you like to know?

(almost) 100 things

('cause everyone else is doing it, why not me?)
  1. I like my feet, my smile, and my nose.
  2. when I was 3? 4?, I ran into a door and got a black eye.
  3. the bruise travelled over my nose and at one time I had two black eyes at the same time. Social services came to talk to my mom, but really, I just ran into the door. I've always been clumsy. One of these days, I'll tell you about sliding on my ass on the pavement, chipping my sister's tooth, and stapling my thumb.
  4. In my head, I refer to myself as 'Grace.'
  5. I've worn glasses since soon after that, although not because of that. I can make my left eye turn inward while my right eye looks straight ahead. It kind of freaks me out.
  6. I've colored my hair twice in my life.
  7. I prefer my own hair color.
  8. I like to give people the benefit of the doubt.
  9. I'm a firm believer in people taking responsibility for themselves and their actions. Children are, with few exceptions, the only victims.
  10. I don't get nearly enough sleep.
  11. I'm an introvert, but you'd only know that about 50% of the time.
  12. After years of trying to tan, I've realized that I'm congenitally white and I don't want skin cancer. I'm whiter than ever now. I'm ok with this.
  13. I've been to Ireland twice and Canada and Mexico once each.
  14. I'd like to travel more, but I have trouble saving money.
  15. I'm a librarian, but I only shush people in movie theaters.
  16. I'm a sucker for romantic comedies.
  17. I eat my cereal dry, with a glass of chocolate milk on the side.
  18. Clip-on sunglasses are the best invention EVER. Well, almost.
  19. Sometimes I can multitask with the best of them, sometimes I have trouble keeping my mind on one thing.
  20. I often buy flowers for myself.
  21. I wish someone else would buy them for me sometimes.
  22. Once I have no more use for a computer, I have no idea what to do with it.
  23. I was afraid of computers for a long time. I'm still pretty sure that one day I'll destroy someone's life work just by being near their computer.
  24. I bake a mean apple pie.
  25. My shoe size went up when I started wearing Birks.
  26. I have one phobia, and I'm not telling you what it is.
  27. I procrastinate, and it works for me.
  28. Although I am both a dog and cat person, I'd probably get a cat before a dog, just because they're so independent and don't need to be walked.
  29. The last time I went to a zoo was 8 or 9 years ago and I cried. I don't intend to go to another one.
  30. I cried the one time I went to the SPCA too, because the dogs made me heartsick, and because a little blind kitten bit my finger.
  31. Before 1997, I hardly ever wore nail polish. Since then, I have worn it almost constantly. I don't know why.
  32. Things I don't like as gifts: heart-shaped or heart-decorated anything, anything pink (unless they're flowers), or angels.
  33. Things I do like to receive: socks, jewelry, good perfume (Chanel, Estee Lauder), plants, pots for the plants, candles.
  34. With few exceptions, history has taught me that men I'm interested in are either 1) not interested in me, or 2) totally completely absolutely wrong for me, or 3) both.
  35. Both my mother and my grandmother have exclaimed about how much grey I have in my hair.
  36. I avoid gang, gangster, horror and war movies.
  37. The few times I've been talked into seeing any of these only served to reinforce my desire to stay away from them.
  38. I am both a night and a morning person. This makes me also a tired person most of the time.
  39. Although I would not have an abortion, I support the right for women to be able to make that decision for themselves.
  40. Things I like to buy for myself: shoes, jewelry, cds, flowers and pillows.
  41. Things I don't like to buy for myself: underwear, glasses, pants, deodorant.
  42. I believe that alcohol brings out our true nature - you don't say or do things when you're drunk that you don't feel, you're just more likely to do them than at other times.
  43. PMS is the same way.
  44. I hate cell-to-cell calls. If you know I'm home, call me on my landline, ok? Thanks.
  45. Except for this website, I've never really had a hobby.
  46. I'm a packrat.
  47. I've moved enough in the past 10 years to overcome the worst of my pack-rattinness.
  48. I once lost a tooth while drinking a coke with lots of ice in it and didn't know till I reached the piece of ice that wouldn't crunch.
  49. I was once so engrossed in the tv show I was watching that I poured my coke into my popcorn instead of the salt. My mom wasn't happy about that.
  50. I had the hardest time making friends in public schools.
  51. I can remember the last time my grandma picked me up.
  52. I've never been back to my birthplace since we moved away when I was 6 mos. old.
  53. I think I fear commitment.
  54. I'm one of those people who believe they are a great driver and they have a wonderful sense of humor. But with me, it's all true.
  55. Salesmen as a breed are the antithesis of me. I can't date any of them.
  56. Despite my theory that there are no 'bad' kissers, it's really just a matter of compatible styles, I consider myself a good kisser.
  57. more as I think of it ...
