I was relaxing and going through my Google Reader when I came across this post by ThetaMom (who is pretty much amazing and if you do not follow her blog you really need to. Like right now). I suddenly flashed back to my college days where I would spend obscene amounts of time procrastinating by filling out the 67th version of an About Me survey on MySpace! How could I pass up an opportunity to reminisce on a Friday night?
Ok, I realize it totally proves I have absolutely no life but I’m ok with that. Fridays are totally my down nights. The work week usually wears me out so I spend Friday nights winding down so I can hopefully have some energy for the weekend with the family! I’ve got shopping to do tomorrow so I need to save my energy!
Here are 48 things you may not have known about me:
1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
Both of my parents! My dad’s name is James and I have my mom’s middle name!
2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
Last night. Pain was high. Endo sucks.
3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?
Not really. When I was younger I used to practice in hopes of learning to like my handwriting but still not really a fan. I definitely have handwriting envy when I see pretty handwriting. I probably love handwriting-inspired fonts too much as a result.
4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT?
5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS?
One and likely done.
6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?
Hahaha. I think so!

Probably too much!
8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS?
9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?
I think so!
10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL?
Oh my! Such a hard question! These days I could practically live on cereal so it is tough to make a decision. I love Cinnamon Chex and Berry Berry Kix these days!

I tend to freak out pretty easily and get easily overwhelmed. I hate that I can get so worked up over things and lose sleep at night over things that really don’t matter.
17. WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST?
I miss living close to my family. Does that count or does this question refer to someone that has passed?

Don’t you wish you were back in NY right now in this blizzard? 😉 I enjoyed reading your responses – this was a fun meme. And I would love to see Australia one day!!
While I would LOVE to see some snow (we rarely get any here), I think I will pass on the blizzard! 🙂
I posted it to my blog. Check it out. 😉
