SUNDAY FAVORITES - IT'S ALL ABOUT ME

This post is part of Sunday Favorites, a rerun of a older post. This is a great idea. Weekends can be so busy and some of our new readers may never find their way back to our older posts. Enjoy and please feel free to add your lists in the comment section.

I would really like it if you would post your own lists here too. Okay, a list of 10 things would be good too. Thanks.

1. I am claustrophobic
2. I was caught stealing a piece of bubblegum when I was very little
3. I was sent to prison for that crime, just kidding. I have never been in prison
4. I have been living with my husband since the first day we went out together (33 years ago)
5. I like tequila
6. I don't have any tattoos
7. I sing like a bird...the crow is the closest example
8. I used to go dancing in nightclubs 6 nights a week
9. I have never danced with my husband (okay maybe one time only)
10. I dance to very loud rock and roll at home by myself (see # 5)
11. Monkeys and primates are my favorite animals
12. Sometimes I look like I am listening to you but really I am not
13. I dropped out of school in grade 11
14. I think I am smarter than many people who went on to university and got degrees
15. I underestimated how hard it would be to come up with 25 things about myself
16. I think I am a good friend
17. I like to feed people (I don't mean by hand I mean by cooking for company)
18. I hate taking classes and like to learn stuff on my own
19. I would have liked to have gone to med school (instead I just learned it on my own..see previous note)
20. I grew up in the projects
21. I hate camping
22. I work best under pressure
23. I have held a hummingbird in my hand
24. I don't care if your house is messy
25. I don't care if my house is messy either

These are fun to read!! Yes, I never like having the responsibility of helping others off the plane in an emergency, but the leg room sure is nice,

Kathleen said...

I think I read these, but some reruns are good!
I don't have tattoo's either, or piercings, not even my ears. We weren't allowed! :)

Rita said...

Love your list. I read your list to my husband and he said that you sounded like my "soul sister."

I have actually posted a list of 100 things about myself twice now on my blog plus answered all the questions on the "I Meme."

So to learn more about me than you ever really wanted to know about someone else click on the following link. It will take you to one and give the link to the other two.

I also thank you for the comment on my repost about my love of hats.

Chari at Happy To Design said...

Girlfriend, I love it!!! I love these question and answer thingys! You really can learn alot about someone by reading the answers! Wink! I don't have a tatoo either, however I had a semi-permanent Janis Joplin tatoo when I was 15. I scratched a heart on the left side of my chest...just like Janis'! Well, I never claimed to be very smart when I was a teenager! In fact, I was a problematic teen! Eeeks...that's all I'll say about that subject! hehe!

Thanks so much for sharing your "list" with us for Sunday Favorites this week! A fun read, Lori!!!

Warmest autumn wishes,
Chari @Happy To Design

Gail said...

Great post!

I shall list the three most important things about me. I don't mind when my house is messy, I don't mind when my house is messy and I don't mind when my house is messy.

Deb said...

Amen to the messy house twins at positions # 24 and 25. Spent the first 20 years of my marriage trying to keep it like it thought it should be...the next 20 have been a lot less frantic...and in a couple of years we'll be working on the last 20 and all bets are off on the cleaning issue! Loved this post!

Diann @ The Thrifty Groove said...

That was a fun list. Okay, here are 10 things (you did ask us to post our list!)
1.) I have danced on stage with Chubby Checker doing the "Twist"
2.) I rented my wedding dress
3.) I got married in Las Vegas on April Fools day.
4.) I use both my left and right hands equally
5.) I also use my toes to pick things up.
6.) I had 6 cats at different times growing up and I named them all Tigger
7.) My first car was a Gremlin with no speedometer.
8.) I got into an arguement with Joan Jett when I was 18 and a waitress. I refused to serve her.
9.) I was in love with Peter Frampton when I was 12
10.)I don't like live plants in my house.

I bet you regretted asking us to share a list with you now huh? LOL

Lori E said...

It is a great list Diann. You have done some interesting things in your life. Thanks for the list.

La Vie Quotidienne said...

This list is great...it really allows people to know you. what a great idea. I also like your idea of using the mice on a cheese tray - that would be so very cute! I would have never thought of it. So...if you don't have "original thinker" on your list, you should add it.(-:

Heather said...

Thanks so much for visiting my blog! I am new to blogging, and it is so exciting when someone leaves a comment and becomes a follower! Your idea for the paper mice is great! I also noticed that you are a big fan of the Graphics Fairy. I am too! I am looking forward to your future posts...love your list idea! :)

Anitra Cameron said...

I love your list! Not sure mine would be as interesting, but here are 10:
1. I write with my left hand, but in all other respects, I'm right-handed.
2. I love words, and will often get side-tracked when looking something up in the dictionary, when I spot new ones. I just get lost, reading the definitions.
3. We had several skunks as pets when I was a kid, and they're still my favorite animal.
4. I'm a microphone addict, and love to sing and perform.
5. I used to think that if I took my glasses off people couldn't see me. I couldn't see them!
6. Oddest job I ever had was sewing the buttons back on the mattresses in a men's dorm.
7. My pinkie toes have two nails each. So do my mom's.
8. I am almost never bored, and Never if I have a camera.
9. My daughter-in-law calls me a Baby Whisperer. It's true. I am.
10. I would rather do physical, Really physical, labor than just about any kind of other work.

These were fun to read... Thanks for sharing.

My mom MADE my wedding dress - - - I made the veil.
