16 Things

Kelly Rae tagged everyone that read to make a list of 16 things people might not know about them so here is mine....

1. I danced for 8 years. Started in kindergarten and stopped at the end of 7th grade. Tap, jazz, ballet but tap was my favorite. I quit to play basketball although it was more of a paternal urging to quit and not so much my wanting to.

2. I celebrated my first birthday in Nassau. I was going to celebrate 13 there but my grandma died and we had to come home.

3. Most of the times when I go shopping for clothes I ask myself if Stacy and Clinton would approve.

4. I don’t eat anything that lives in water, seafood, fish.

5. Mac and cheese is my favorite comfort food.

6. I like the window seat on planes. I enjoy seeing where I’m going and trying to spot landmarks as we’re getting ready to land.

7. I only made Dean’s list once in college. After my first year I never thought it was possible but I got it my last term. It also happened to be one of my easiest terms.

8. My mom is addicted to Bejeweled on my IPod Touch. I have to make sure it’s charged when I get home at night so she can play until the battery dies.

9. My first job was working with mentally disabled children. It’s still the best job I had.

10. Hearing people use double negatives is a huge pet peeve of mine. Also poor grammar. Not that my grammar is perfect.

11. This time of year is my least favorite. I don’t mind cold but I don’t like the really cold.

12. I’m one of those people stores hate. I buy things and then take them back. With clothes it’s the fact that things look different once you get them home. I’m trying to be better but I do have stuff that needs to go back to Target.

13. Pink is my favorite color, but for most of my life it was purple. My bedroom in my current house was originally painted purple, now it's blue.

14. If I could wear flip flops all year long I would.

15. I've been to the finals of 2 sports and feel like I need to go to a Superbowl and World Series to round it out. I saw the Wings win in 1997 from the top row of the Joe and in 2005 I was at game 5 of the NBA finals when the Pistons lost I believe in 2 overtimes.

16. I'm not the most organized person in the world even though I sometimes think I am. Then I have to look at my bedroom and know I need major help!

Not having the best day so I'm trying to think of the good things.

1. I got into Pop Century for $69 a night when I go to Orlando in March. Now I have to figure out when I'm flying down. Mom is going with a friend and then she was going to be alone for a couple days before I came down. Now I'm thinking I'm going to get there when my mom's friend is still there. After Carol leaves mom can drop me off at Disney while she goes to visit my aunt on the coast.

2. New Gossip Girl and The Bachelor tonight. I think right now Gossip Girl is the best show on TV, followed by The Mentalist.

3. No Mannings are going to be in the Superbowl. :)

4. My dog is a nut. No question about it.

Love, Actually

One of my favorite scenes from one of my favorite movies.

The other would be Hugh Grant dancing around 10 Downing Street.

Take a box of Kleenex

I saw Seven Pounds over the weekend. I can't really tell you anything about the movie because it would give it away but you will need kleenex for most of the movie.

The movie was good, just a little slow in a couple places.

I Believe

My favorite Christmas movie is the original Miracle on 34th Street. I don't know why really but it's just always caught me. Maybe it's the idea of Santa. Sure I know it was mom and dad that put stuff under my tree but I love the idea of Santa, some magical guy.

A couple interesting things I just learned about this movie. It came out in July because the studio didn't think anyone would want to see a movie about Christmas. The movie stayed in the theaters until Christmas. Next, the scene where Susan pulls Kris's beard is real. It was a shock to her.

My favorite part of the movie is probably the end. Susan is sad that she didn't get her gift and keeps going, "I believe, I believe..." Then the next thing you know their driving by the house of her dreams.

Dear Santa

All I want for Christmas is an Ipod Touch. Really, I'll be happy with a little box as long as this is in it.

Jcrew is one of my favorite stores. It can get pricey though so rarely do I buy anything in the store that isn't on sale.

Take the 4 things I got Monday.

I got them for about 75% off orginal price.

That makes me happy. It also makes me happy to wear the pink shirt, it's so soft.
