Ten More....

I started my 100 Things, I think, in honor of my hundredth post. I thought it would make it easier to do. But, I'm nearing my three hundredth post and I'm still not done. Why yes, I AM a procrastinator. Why do you ask?

So, here's ten more. Eventually we'll get to 100.

40. When I'm eating a sandwich or a hot dog or pretty much anything between two slices of bread, I always leave a little bit of bread/bun on my plate. I don't really know why I do it, except that if it's a large bite and there's no meat left I usually think "well, I'm not just going to eat the bread. it's not worth the calories." But sometimes it'll be just a tiny little piece. It drives Mr. Daddy NUTS. Just tonight he picked the tiny little crust up and waved it in my face "Why? Why don't you eat this tiny little piece?" I don't know. It's just my thing.

39. I've never seen any of the Godfather movies. I know, I know!!

38. I've only been fired from a job once. In college. It was mortifying.

37. For a very brief while I worked in a t-shirt shop at the beach. You know, the kind where you walk in and pick the design off the wall and then someone behind the counter uses that gigantic iron to press it on your t-shirt? Yeah, that was me.

36. As a child I used to LOVE going to those old-timey photo booths. I would still go if I could get anyone to go with me!

35. I have a thing for guys with big noses. Nomar Garciaparra. Adrien Brody. You get the idea.

34. In seventh grade I wrote Ted Turner a letter about the Goodwill Games and he wrote me back.

33. In high school I received a Best Actress award at the regional One Act competition for playing a pregnant, gossiping bridge player in a play called The Coal Diamond.

32. If I really like a song, I'll play it 3 or 4 times in a row. Yeah, the kids have got nothing on me.

31. I don't like cinnamon rolls. Yes, there is something wrong with me. I like to smell them, but I don't really like to eat them.

Okay, I was freaking out!!! Because reading the first three, I was like, "ME TOO!!!" And then I started getting a little weirded out. It was a little like an episode of The Twilight Zone or something. But then you saved me with the t-shirt place. Never did that. BUT I did win a best actress award in college. What is your mother's name?!? Just checking. :0)

Laurel said...

Oh. And my husband has a big nose...but don't tell him I said that. P.S. He's totally hot.

I've only seen the first Godfather - and only it bits, not the whole thing. You are not alone!

Mmmm, Adrian Brody - he's so sexy. That's a great thought to start the day - thanks!!!

Karen said...

How about you do the sniffing and I'll eat them, mkay?

Burgh Baby said...

How could you not like cinnamon rolls? Oh my. I guess that leaves more for me, but somehow I feel that I'm cheating you out of something wonderful and gooey and delicious.

BTW, I've never seen any of the Godfathers either.

Oh, we have a lot in common. Minus the cinnamon roll quirk.

Great list. I laughed at the thought of your hubby waving the bread in your face. And don't feel bad - I don't eat cinnamon buns either. I'll bake 'em but I don't eat 'em.

I am totally with you about leaving a little bit of my dinner on my plate! It doesn't matter what it is, a little bit has to stay. I think I picked it up as a dieting tip once upon a time, and then it just became a thing.

Also - these 100 things are hard! I tried doing a list of my own, and I think I'm stuck somewhere ridiculously low - like in the 40s. And here I always thought I was so complicated...

I've never seen any of the Godfather movies, either! I've barely even seen any clips from any of them.

Your song quirk, too, is one I share. My kids know that if I hit the replay button once on whatever my current obsession is, I'll hit it at least five more times, and if they don't like it, they better find something else to do!

No. There is nothing wrong with you, because as yummy as cinnamon rolls are, they are fattening and NO ONE should ever eat them.

Colleen said...

I was just wondering the other day if we were going to see the rest of your list!

I also leave that last bit of bread/bun on my plate...kinda glad I'm not the only one. :)

I hope you don't mind if I eat your share of cinnamon buns, then?

I'm with Burgh (shocker, right?) HOW CAN YOU NOT LIKE CINNAMON ROLLS? I had two this morning!

Lulu said...

Go to IKEA. You will eat the cinnamon rolls.

Oh, and I've never seen the Godfather movies either. We are such outcasts.

Susie said...

I don't like cinn. rolls either - too much work to eat:)
