my final twenty five.

I feel like the last one should be something really profound, like, "I'm five years older than everyone thinks" (not true) or "I just got a new job" - (I didn't) - so I couldn't come up with a good profound last word. I will have to continue to think about what might be profound. . . Right now, all I can think is that bed is sounding pretty good. . .

76. I love fireflies. It is difficult for me to not run after them and catch them.

77. I also still like to run after pigeons but not because I love them.

78. I crave salty and sweet things - not one or the other like most people.

79. I think that the contractor who redid our kitchen and master bath did a substandard job. The work is all about a year old. The caulk in the kitchen is cracking and crumbling out of the spaces in the tiles. He didn't bring the electrical outlets up to code in the kitchen or bathroom. He used plate glass on the bathroom window (not tempered glass), etc. This all happened about six months before we purchased the home. I wish I knew his name.

80. I love antiques and wish our house was full of them.

81. I like vacationing but would rather take a trip where we do stuff. We took 'doing stuff' trips when I was a child and few 'beach only' vacations. I like beach only trips, too, but it has been a while since we had a do stuff trip.

82. I do not eat leftover seafood.* I think that is positively foul. *The one exception is grilled shrimp. I might, depending on how my stomach is that day, eat them in a salad but there will need to be a lot of dressing and croutons and cheese, which sort of defeats the purpose of a salad.

83. Of all of the artificial flavorings, my favorite is orange. The most repulsive to me is watermelon.

84. I have a little bit of social anxiety. I get nervous when I know there will be a crowd and will look for reasons to not attend. . .even if I know everyone there.

85. I wish I dressed more classically, like in all black and white all the time with colored accessories. I would look good, I think. . . but it would probably get old.

86. I always get a flu shot.

87. If someone misspells my name, particularly if they have seen it before, I think they are rude.

88. I love musicals. The old fashioned cheesy ones with brightly colored film and costuming are my favorites - example: Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.

89. I also LOVE Doris Day movies. The innuendo for the time is hilarious.

90. I make gingerbread houses every Christmas. I used to have to give them away because we had a rodent issue at our house. I am really looking forward to the gingerbread sticking around this year! I candy shop all year long to find certain things that will look good decorating the gingerbread.

91. My hands are almost always a little swollen. gross.

92. I love a thesaurus. I love the online version, at www.thesaurus.com, but it isn't nearly as good as a good old paper version.

93. I like terrariums. I think they are so very interesting to look at, and they look like the kind of place where fairies would be born.

94. I love going to baseball games.

95. I have a chicken pox scar on the side of my nose just below my right eye and a scar in the eyebrow over that same eye.

96. I love the "shabby chic" style of decorating, but I am afraid to commit.

97. I am a sucker for pajamas. I love long sleeve, long pants pajamas. Not so sexy, am I?

98. I prefer dark chocolate over milk chocolate and do not like white chocolate, at all.

99. I read all seven of the main "Little House" books over the course of the second grade.

100. I believe that feminism today is having the ability to choose my own destiny instead of having society dictate my path.
