25 MORE Things About Moi

I am repeatedly getting tagged on Facebook from people filling out a '25 Things About Me' list. Frankly, I don't know how to fill out the notes on Facebook, but I am quite familiar with my blog, so I'm just going to write them here and then post a link on my new addiction. Sounds like a plan, Stanley!

As you know, I posted a more extensive About Me list last year, so it was very difficult coming up with 25 more items in addition to my previous 100. So…here goes it…

1. I love to put cinnamon apple sauce on everything [including Ravioli's]
2. I once pulled a back muscle in the shower while belting out Christina Aguilera's "Beautiful"
3. I have a magnificent view of the Myriad Gardens from my office window
4. I believe in God, but do not believe in organized religion
5. My sister and I were only grandchildren on my father's side, yet my grandparents could hardly stand us.
6. I love Indian Food. Every birthday, that is my meal choice. Period.
7. I sobbed uncontrollably at the end of Benjamin Button
8. I have become quite addicted to milk chocolate covered almonds of the Hershey variety
9. I want to move to the Eastern part of the United States
10. I love my friends - real life and bloggers!
11. I always route for the underdog
12. I am usually the underdog
13. I cried the first time my husband beat me at mini-golf
14. I am very competitive
15. My new celebrity crush is Bradley Cooper [although he does not replace my previously mentioned crushes: Ryan Phillippe and Ewan McGregor]
16. I think mowing the lawn is oodles of fun
17. My mom and I once bought 200 lottery tickets…and ended up winning only seventeen dollars
18. I once got chased to the police station by a crazy woman in a truck after I flipped her off in the Taco Bell drive-thru line
19. You can win me over with a cupcake--my ultimate weakness
20. I floss every day
21. I rarely wear make-up
22. I am addicted to Mafia Wars
23. I once licked all of the salt off of my airplane bag of pretzels and then gave them to my mom to eat [she wasn't happy]
24. My favorite gum is Trident: Original Flavor
25. I love love love Chocolate Chip, Orange, Zucchini Bread. Yum!

So there you have it. Not a super exciting list…but it took a LONG time for me to come up with 25 things and cross reference them to my old list. I only put one thing on there twice and that was 'I do not like to swim in public bodies of water'…so that item is doubly true.

I love this list.

I also think mowing the lawn is oodles of fun! I miss living in a house. Living in Cleveland is all apartment life for me.

Dude, I could make you some mean cupcakes. Next time I'm in town, we should have a gathering and do some throw-down cupcake making. I've forgotten all the things I wanted to talk about from your list. Crap...

Nootle said...

uhhhh...I forgot my name was Nootle on here. It's Natalie (Samples). I should change that name...

Lopez said...

TOTALLY knew this was you before you identified yourself! Ha!!

Samples This.

I like it.

Matthew said...

Very interesting read. Also a reminder that I need to cut the grass this weekend. I think you like it a bit more than I do so, if you're passing, the mower's in the back shed. Thanks!

Lopez said...

Matthew: if that means i get to go to Au...then i'm IN!!!

Mr. Condescending said...

I first thought you wrote, "I cried the first time my husband beat me." Lol!

Cinnamon always confuses me, are there two cinnamons? Cinnamon flavored candy is always hot but cinnamon toast and stuff is sweet. Wtf?

Tiny Teacher said...

That flipping off of the lady at the Taco Bell drive-thru...that happened in high school, didn't it?

NduguNStephie said...

HAHAHA! I love it! This list made me smile and laugh!

I remember when you gave mom those pretzels HAHAH! CRACKS me up!

How about
26. You refuse to eat dinosaur shaped spaghetti-o's because you puked them up when you were like 5 hahaha!

JennyMac said...

#2 cracked me up! And I have to admit, Bradley Cooper is getting hotter and hotter.

Eric said...

Ummm, concerning list item #4, I'm pretty certain that organized religion does in fact exist, so you should probably believe in its existence. ;)

ps - with you on the God thing.

Mr. Condescending said...

Lopez runs trhe marathon like noithing!

Lopez said...

Eric: What I MEAN is that I don't believe a person must take part in organized religion in order to have a relationship with other words, just b/c I don't go to church doesn't make me an athiest or an agnostic.

Tiny Teacher: Yes, that was in highschool...junior year. Good call!

Stephanie: Thanks for the dinosaur story. Love it.

Mr. C.: You drunk?

Eric said...

Lopez, I agree with your position, that's kind of where I'm at too.

I was just joking around with you using some irony. Extreme irony, as Mr. C. might call it...

Believe to mean 'go along with', vs. believe that 'something exists'.

Girl Interrupted said...

Great list! I don't know anywhere near enough about my US BFF ... so more please! :P Also, we have a lot in common, especially #'s 4, 10, 16 and 21 :)

Andrea said...

I also sobbed uncontrollably at the end of Benjamin Button--but only because I was so damn glad it was over.

Love the list! Now tell me... how many times have you mowed the lawn this year? Just curious. My count is zero--my count of myself, not you!
