41 Things

This post is a day early but I will be preparing for the Youth Retreat tomorrow. I have seen this type of meme on other blogs for birthday posts. So for my 41st birthday I am going to share 41 random things about me.

1. I love sushi.

2. I sell toilets for a living. (I am a plumbing showroom manager)

3. I have 1 sister.

4. My dad was killed in an accident when I was 15.

5. I drive a pickup truck.

6. I love the sound a wooden screen door makes when it slams. We have three of those doors on our house.

7. I am a youth choir director.

8. As of right now my favorite US city is Chicago. I would love to visit many more and add to the list.

9. I want to go on an Alaskan cruise before I die.

10. I graduated from college with a degree in Electronics Engineering Tech. My mom thinks she wasted her money.

11. My first car was a PINK Datsun pickup truck.

12. My kids say I can't cook. However, I do serve a mean Poptart.

13. My hair has been punk rock spiked with coke can red highlights. And I was an adult when this was done.

14. I collect lighthouses.

15. My grandfather is alive but I don't know him.

16. I look like my mom.

17. I act like my dad.

18. I drink really expensive tequila. (Herradura Silver, and Patron)

19. Summer sandal weather requires painted toenails.

20. The china pattern I collect is Salem Petit Point.

21. I collect coca cola memorabilia.

22. I love fresh linen and black cherry scented candles.

23. My favorite place to soul search is in the front porch swing at night. Kitty cat, Almond, usually joins me.

24. I can (and have) watch "Gone in 60 Seconds" over and over.

25. I kill houseplants.

26. I love Rock City barns.

27. I suffered anoriexia as a teenager.

28. I eat steak, but prefer chicken.

29. I do not knit, I crochet.

30. I would rather have wood floors than carpet.

31. I hate to paint unless it is a crafty project.

32. I do not sit still well at all. I have to be doing something.

33. I am not a morning person.

34. There is nothing in the world that a hot bath and chocolate won't make a little better.

35. My favorite wine is "Big Fire Pinot Noir". Bottled by R Stuart & Co. , an Oregon winery.

36. I am a huge fan of Bonnie Raitt.

37. I am allergic to stings.

38. Coca-Cola Classic - not diet - definitely not Pepsi.

39. Favorite concerts I have attended - The Eagles, Skynard in the old Fulton County Staduim, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. Quite obviously I am a teenager of the 80's.

40. Baths preferred over showers.

41. I am terrified of camel crickets and spiders, and I do not like snakes.

There, now you all know a little more about me. Probably more than you wanted to.

One last tidbit, for those of you who have children, I share a birthday with Sponge Bob.

Have a beautiful day. I plan to spend this birthday weekend with the kids in the church youth group. I hope you have a great weekend.

Teresa...i always love reading little tid-bits about people and learning something about them. I am cracking up about the "poptarts". And I thought the sound of the wooden screen door was very cool and totally different. I happen to like the sound of the dryer, especially when going to sleep...weird I know :0) Hope you had a wonderful weekend.

Happy belated birthday! I'm just like you in that I can't sit still very long. It feels good to get things done.

Nice, honest list. Thanks for sharing some of yourself.
