100 pointless facts about me

I saw this on another blog and decided it was necessary on mine. I did not realize how hard it would be to come up with 100 facts. But here they are.

100 Facts about me

3 My parents had been trying to have me for almost 3 years.
4 I was due on 12-25-1977.
5 My father made my mom jump up and down and try to have me before the first of the year so he could claim me as a dependant on his income tax return for the year. I was stubborn before I was born.
6 I lived at the same house my parents have lived in since they were married in 1969.
7 They had the same phone number the whole time and still do.
8 I attended kinder gym at the YMCA when I was 3. I met one of my best friends there. We are still best friends. (Yes Mindy, I am talking about you). Several years later the teacher was thrown in the clank for shoplifting.
9 I was admitted to school a year early. I had to take a test and passed because I drew 5 fingers and toes on the people they had me draw.
10 My mom had to let me take the test because I cried all day when my brother left and I wanted to go too.
11 I failed 8th grade English and Math and had to take summer school. My mom did the packet that I had to do. All I did was take the test. I would have passed both classes if I had done my homework.

29 Jimmy introduced me to my husband. He didn’t want us to date, because he didn’t want it to mess up “band stuff”. Chris quit the band just before we started dating. (this had nothing at all to do with me, I had previously just said he was cute, he didn’t even know it when he quit the band)
30 Chris and I started dating at the Brewery’s hayride in 2001. I touched his arm in the truck and he thought I was hitting on him, so he pursued me for the rest of the night.

Yay! Isn't it hard? I didn't know you checked your email that much in one do I. I should email you more! ;-)

I always forget that you were previously married.

#24/25/26 (bars) - sounds familiar!

Brewery hayrides. You know, I always missed out on those. :(

The first concert I went to was Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch. Shut up.

We SO have to play Asshole next time I see you. Or quarters. Or Drinking Jenga. ;-)

Barefoot and pregnant is definitly not for me, but we'd love to see little Chris's running around!

Good list!

I hate those e-mails that go around asking you questions about yourself and al lthat crap.

However, this was really well done, and a good read!


Sounds like you've had quite an interesting time of things!

Almostgrace said...

This was a very nice list Shell. I laughed out loud about your dad making your mom hop up and down. I keep telling Adam that he has to impregnate me for next years taxes. He keeps wimping out though. Jerk!

ShellBug526 said...

Glad you enjoyed. We are working on the whole impregnation thing. Not have any luck though. I also hate the e-mail questionairres, but I liked doing this because I could put the stuff I wanted to and not have to think of answers for questions that don't really relate to me...

All day today though I was thinking of things I could have put on here. I too think I could come up with 100 more things. But I won't!!

For you, as if he knows anything about it!:

The growth of poker is taking the country by storm. Gambling was once relegated to smoky back rooms. Today it's spreading through America's living rooms, the Internet, and even high schools. What's fueling this recreational craze? And why do some players become problem gamblers?
