Oo This sounds like fun.  Do you have to be a woman?  Discrimination sucks.  If it was a man only club, women would insist on being allowed in.
LOL.   So true.

For me, a serving of Krispy Kreme donuts is however many there are.  Which is why I can't eat Krispy Kremes more than about once a year.  ;D

I've been meaning to do this for awhile...here goes...not sure I can come up with 25...

1.  I was born in Atlanta in Crawford Long Hospital.  Now that I think of it, someone else here said they were born there & I started my list back then when I read it but I got distracted & gave up.
...
16.  It's embarrassing how many Krispy Kremes I can inhale at one sitting.  Even worse is how many I could inhale if I didn't stop because I'm horrifying myownself.

My wife shares both of these traits with you. :)

How hot do you have to get the bottle to do that?  Doesn't the excessive heat hurt the wine or do you empty the bottle first?

I had not heard of this.  Thanks for the heads up!  I search and found this in Indiana: http://www.in.gov/dnr/outdoorwoman/  Is it the same program you are referring to?  I am probably going to sign up for the weekend.

I participated last November here in Florida. It was such a fun weekend that we are planning to sign up for next November. We may even sleep out in tents  :-\ never too sure about the weather in Florida in November...then there are the little critters you have to think about....maybe sleeping in a cabin isnt such a bad idea.  :D

This is a fun thread - to paraphrase the words of Montgomery Scott from the new Star Trek movie - "I like this Kindleboards, it's exciting!'

Ok, my turn.

1. Was born in San Antonio, Texas but raised in Del Rio, Texas on the border.
2. Loved messing with photography since high school, and used to have a black and white darkroom. Still love the look of good black and white photography the best.
3. I am a gadget nut. i guess this stems from the cool handheld games I had as a kid. Comp IV was and still is one of my favorites.
4. Love videogames ever since I worked for two months saving up for an Intellivision when I was fresh out of high school - Astrosmash rocks (pun intended)
5.  I have been a cop for 20 years now. 15 in Del Rio and 5 here in San Angelo.  Love helping people.
6. Most depressing memory of being a cop - having one of my DARE kids come and ask me why we (the police) had arrested her daddy.
7. Most special memory of being a cop - having one of my DARE kids telling patrol officers she only wanted to talk to me because she trusted me.
8. I miss my granma every day.  She was the most special person in my life. I still find myself picking up the phone to call her and she's been gone over 10 years now.
9. Have always loved reading books - especially science fiction. My favorite author is Robert A. Heinlein, and my favorite story of his is "The Door into Summer".  It is like an old friend and many of his books are places I like to go to when I'm sad.
10. My father was gay and as such, I tend to be more tolerant than most cops general attitude towards homosexuality. I think it makes me a better person. People are people and their sexuality should not be a factor in their humanity or worth.
11. My wife and I met when she was 17 and I was 19. We lost contact and then began dating again when she had a daughter. I felt lucky to be part of their life. We then got married when we had a daughter when she was 21 and I was 23. We subsequently divorced when basically we didn't know how to fight without quitting. We were too young. 
12. I married my second wife 5 years later.
13. After 11 years of marriage - both good and bad - my second wife and I had become more friends than husband and wife and divorced.
14. I moved back to San Angelo to be closer to my daughter and her sister.
15. Ended up re-marrying my first wife 5 years ago.
16. My 2nd wife moved to San Angelo to become a cop where I worked and my 1st/current wife invited her to live with us while she got acclimated. She lived in our spare bedroom for 1 1/2 years and is now one of my wife's best friends and they pick on me mercilessly. She also remains my best friend to this day and I help her every way I can.
17. Everyone thinks #11 - #16 is weird. (LOL)
18. I am 1/2 Scot and 1/2 German.
19. I love watches - does this count as gadgets?
20. Am addicted to the internet and information. I consider it to be like the world's biggest flea market/library/attic.  Google is your friend.
21. Favorite movie of all time? Somewhere in Time - I cry every time when he finds that item in his pocket. It gives me shivers everytime I hear - "Come back to me".
22. Am an extreme romantic - I tend to tear up at Hallmark commercials. (and my wife picks at me mercilessly for this!)
23. Am just now finding out how much my sister and I are really alike.
24. My wife swears that cloning really exists in people and points at my daughter and I for proof.
25. Dream of living in Northern California or Colorado - anyplace colder and greener than West Texas.

Bonus: I am a life-long Trekker and love the Star Trek universe and all it's incarnations. (I'm such a geek!)

I agree completely Leslie. It is wonderful to see so many different people here.  I too thank everyone for sharing. I know it was kinda strange to be sharing so much stuff with y'all, but very cathartic too.

I also love #11 through #16.  I became good friends with an ex-wife and her family of a guy I dated.  They were awesome and often invited me to events even when the boyfriend couldn't make it.   I have since moved away, but we stay in contact whenever I'm in her town.

Not everyone -- my husband's first wife and her 2 young sons from her 2nd marriage lived with us for almost a year.  She was escaping from an abusive situation.  We all got along very well, no problems, except one of our cats didn't like her kids.  The cat ended up moving in with our across-the-street neighbors. He just started hanging out there, and they didn't know he was ours for quite a while.  They loved him so we let it be.  People thought we were weird too.

3. My youngest child was born on July 4th and HATES fireworks!

5. My ex owes me over $50,000 in back child support. I doubt I'll ever see it.

6. I hate cold weather but went skiing for the first time this past Christmas.

7. I am from SC, live in NC and can't wait to move to FL.

8. I was a theatre major in college and have acted in local community theatre. Now, that my kids are older, I'd love to audition again.

9. I have only 1 sibling, a sister who is 4 years younger than me.

10. Since I was a baby, I have never not lived with a cat. Some names of cats I've had are Silly, Mitzi, Zico, Motley, Axel, Amos, Mandy, Sasha, Mr Whiskers, and Huckleberry Finn

11. I google everything, hence my name on the boards. My friends tease me that I have a degree from the University of Google.

12.  I LOVE college football. And not just the Gamecocks. I keep up with the BCS standing and the weekly polls for most teams. Especially the SEC. My DH is a Gator fan. Needless to say that game is a little heated.

13. I was a lifeguard in college. Other jobs I've had include waitress, bartender, receptionist for a bailbondsman, bank teller, retail associate, nursing assistant, phlebotomist, preschool teacher.

14. My husband is 8 years younger than me and has to be to greatest man to marry an older woman with 3 kids from previous realtionships. He has become the best step-father to them.

18. I'm teaching myself to knit even though my husband says it's for old ladies

19. I love watching movies over and over. If I like a movie, I'll buy it on DVD so I can watch it again and again.

20.  My favorite author is John Grisham. I have read all his books and own almost everyone in hard back. l think even if they become available on Kindle, I would still buy hardbacks.

21. My mom is 74 and still works full time. She loves it and is very active.

22. I can't blow my nose or I'll puke. I think my gag reflex is super sensitive because of all the puking I did during chemo. See #4

23. I hate to cook. I find nothing enjoyable about it.

24. I've bitten my fingernails ever since I can remember. It's better now but I usually have one or 2 really short ones that I bite on instead of all 10.

25. I'm pretty handy with tools. I have installed the crossbars for the roof rack of my SUv, also mudflaps.

25 Random Things (not in chronological order)

1. Back in the 70's I was crazy about a professional motorcycle racer (road racer) so I bought myself a motorcycle and learned how to ride very fast!

2. My dad is 92 years old and still plays golf 5 days / week

3. I play the ukulele (not very well but I have fun)

4. My first computer was a Commodore 64 in 1982.  It had 64 kilobytes of RAM

5. I was a registered nurse for about 18 years.

6.  My 2nd husband was a patient of mine, and my soul mate.

7.  On our 3rd date he took me to Barbados

8. After 20 years of marriage I held his hand while he passed away from cancer

9. My husband's ex-wife lived with us for 10 months trying to escape an abusive boyfriend.  (Ended up going back with him )

10. I wrote a novel when I was in 6th grade, a fantasy, called Black Horse at Night

11.  I thought for years that I wanted to be a writer, but then realized I really don't like to write -- so it turns out I didn't want to write, but rather I wanted to have written.

12. In my Earth Mother phase I ground my own wheat & made home made bread.

13. When I was 20 I lived in San Francisco in a studio apartment downtown for $110 / month, which was more than half my take-home pay

14.  I worked for Hewlett-Packard when they had their first computer, the HP 2116, in the basement.  Only a few of HP's engineers worked with it.
 
15. Where was I on September 11 ? . . .    On September 11, 2001 I went to work early so i could have a "romantic interlude" with my sweetheart before work, so we missed the initial reports (6:15 am Pacific Time). 

16. When I was 10 years old I was in a costume parade, and I wore a hat made out of an old wicker birdcage.  My parakeet was in the cage.  I won 2nd prize.

17. When I was a kid, I read "Heidi" three times in one day.  It was a Saturday.  It was raining, what else could I do??

18. I lived and worked in San Francisco in the 60's & 70's. 

19. Graduated from San Francisco State in 1972.

20. I saw the Grateful Dead when they were still called the Warlocks.  They played in a 2nd hand bookstore in Menlo Park, a suburb of San Francisco.

21. I once fired a machine gun (at a practice range, not at a person).

22. My first job was in a hospital kitchen.  I was 16, and I made $1.42 / hour

23. I lost 65 pounds last year (on purpose)

24. I like ice cream with crumbled up peanut butter cookies in it

25.  I believe that we humans have a missing puzzle piece in our hearts, and that dogs have an extra piece that fits perfectly into our empty space.

I love your #25, Kathie.

I'll play.

1. From S. Louisiana and a lover of boiled crawfish.
2. Retired at age 48.
3. Now split time between Levelland, Tx and a cabin located at 8000 ft in the Rocky Mountains. I spend less and less time in Tx.  :D
4. Spent 2 months in Haight-Ashbury when I was 18 (1970), just crashing where ever I could find a spot. Had hair down past my shoulders.
5. First job was as a life guard at a local pool.
6. Horrible singing voice and can't play a note of music..
7. Put myself through college as a DJ for an underground FM radio station in New Orleans.
8. I trained my first dog to hunt when I was 14. I then spent 38 more years training dogs for K9, scent, rescue, therapy and many other needs. A belgian malinois that I trained for rescue worked the Murrah Federal Building explosion in Oklahoma City.
9. I've been to Italy, Sicily, Germany, Ireland, Scotland and Puerto Rico.
10. I don't do well in crowds or crowded cities. Hate traffic.
11. I keep tropical fish and have a 90 gallon aquarium.
12. My favorite color is blue. Almost to the point of being obsessive about it.
13. I drove in amateur SCCA competition for almost 20 years.
14. I always sing along with the theme song of "Monk" (see #6 above). Love that show. Last season coming up. Sigh.
15. My prize possession is a very worn leather bookmark that all my kids bought together for me one Christmas.
16. My grandson's middle name is my son's first name. My son's middle name is my first name. My middle name is my dad's first name. And so on as far back as we can find.
17. My son was born on my birthday.
18. I'm 7 years younger than my wife.
19. Troubleshooting problems and puzzle solving are joys in life for me, not chores.
20. Today I have more hair on my face than I do on my head. Things sure change. (see #4)
21. I own every Jimmy Buffett album, every Moody Blues album and every John Fogerty album. And that is just the start of a huge music collection that my wife thinks is way too much. I disagree. ;)
22. I am a better cook than my wife. Especially Cajun food.
23. I don't drink nor do I smoke, although I kid about drinking from time to time.
24. I have an obsession with time. In the room I'm in right now I have 4 clocks. I also have on a wristwatch and the time displayed in the lower right corner of my computer.
25. I am into landscape photography.

18. I'm teaching myself to knit even though my husband says it's for old ladies

Tell your husband he's crazy.  There's been a resurgence of young people learning to knit.  My daughter, 24, started just before Christmas and is having a great time. 
I'm not a great knitter, but I do crochet quite a bit.  I try to teach as many young girls as I can so that these wonderful crafts do not get lost in a few generations.
