100 Things

I have been inspired by several blogs that I love reading, and so I decided to do a version of the "100 things about me" that I have seen all over the Internet. I don't have the time (or the imagination) to spell out 100 things, but I thought I could shoot for ten-ish things that perfect strangers might enjoy reading about Margot's Mom:

1. I am currently obsessed with the band Nicklecreek.

2. I recently re-connected with a few college buddies, and have had SO much fun getting to know them all over again. I highly recommend you do this. Start right after reading this post and leaving a comment.

3. I still love my parents and need them in my life.

4. I love "things" and value them. Not my best trait. It is a work in progress. I am better than I was two years ago.

5. I have had the same pair of sunglasses for 8 years now. They were a graduation present from my brother and I will cry when they die.

6. I don't like talking on the phone. (Which is weird, because I almost always have something to say about everything)

7. I love to cook, and I am pretty good at it. I do not like to bake.

8. I do not drink wine or coffee. I think they both taste like crap. This makes me feel like a imbecile when we go to nice restaurants.

9. I am a control freak, a mild germaphobe and a type A know-it-all. Thankfully, these personality traits normally don't coincide with each other. So instead of coming off as a flaming bitch, I am usually seen as "organized" and "clean". This is particularly helpful at work.

10. I HATE flying insects. Bees, wasps, grasshoppers.....even harmless little moths.

11. I was a terrible parent to my infant. I was afraid to be alone with her and did not know how to interact with her very well. Now I realize that this was actually an easy time to be a parent, and I would like to go back to sitting quietly in the bedroom with her snugly body, nursing her to sleep and feeling her breathe on my skin.

12. I smell like burnt garbage right now, because I spent all morning incinerating drugs. (Not as much fun as it sounds like)

13. I hope others will do the same on their blog so I can learn something new about my friends and family.

Ok, so 13 is a respectable number. I might pick this back up every few months or so and bore you all to death. I kind of like making lists. (See #9)

HA! I finally did a list of 100 things.
I always wanted to do one but thanks to my competitive spirit, I HAD to do one NOW!
and I actually finished it by midnight.
(gee, maybe getting a life should've been on there, somewhere.)

I loved reading your list, though it really made me miss you! I'm totally with you on #10... I get laughed at on a regular basis for my fear of bees and grasshoppers.

Post more soon. That was fun! :)
