I love being married.
I love my Jeep, though I love the fact that Matthew made it possible for me to get the Jeep even more.
I like my job but don't love it.
I sometimes wonder what my life would be like if we had stayed in New Jersey instead of moving to Florida when I was nine.
I sometimes worry that I'm an enabler like my mom but don't know what to do about it. It's the only thing about my mom I hate.
I can often tell when someone is lying to me. Just cause I don't call you out on it doesn't mean I don't know.
Reading in a hot bubble bath is one of my favorite ways to relax by myself. The more stressed I am the more baths I take.
I think about having children a lot even though I know there's a good possibility it won't happen. It makes me cry.
I'm sick of hearing everyone telling me over and over that Matthew will change his mind.
Casey Anthony makes me sick.
I don't like worrying about money so much because there's usually very little I can do about it anyway.
Sometimes I feel like people don't really hear me.
My feelings hurt easily but I get over it just as easy.
Asking me why I'm crying is only going to make it worse.
The only bones in my body I've ever broken is my pinkie and my second toe, though I think I've broken the same toe 3 times.
I'm very glad I like my in-laws and Matthew like his, I was always worried it'd be like all the stories you hear about.
I have a hard time saying no.
Sometimes I don't make sense to myself.
If there was one talent I could have it would be singing, I'm not talking American Idol singing, just to sing well enough not to be embarrassed if someone heard me.
I would like to get into photography professionally but I'm not sure how to make it into something I could live off of.
I want to believe in God.
I love a Star Trek Geek!
My favorite type of humor is dry humor I hate stupid funny, it's not that funny.
I enjoy making up stories in my head while I'm driving by myself but I never write them down usually cause I can't remember them by the time I get home.
I very rarely remember my dreams.

With the one exception for "SPAM" :), all of these were great.  Thank you all for posting.  We are a very diverse group as much alike as we are different.

1. My favorite movie as a kid was Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. As a teen, it was My Life as a Dog. Now? It's Notting Hill.

2. I got in trouble in high school for skipping volleyball. I would escape into the German lab and study instead. My punishment was detention where I studied some more. LOL

3. Ive taken 3 years of Spanish, 5 years of German, 1 year of Japanese, and 1 day of Russian.

4. My first concert was U2 on their 1983 War tour. It was general admission, so we got there 3 hours early and had front row. Most people hadnt heard of U2 yet. I've been to many concerts, but I've only seen two bands more than once: Duran Duran and the Grateful Dead.

6. Im a former vegetarian who rarely eats meat. I cant deal with meat still on the bone, and if I think about zygotes eggs too much, I cant eat them either.

7. I never got a fake ID for drinking purposes, but I did finagle my address so I could get a library card in a neighboring jurisdiction. Hey, what can I sayit was a better library system, with more books.

8. I have found and returned 3 wallets in my lifetime. After my experience returning the first one, I learned that wallets are best returned anonymously via the mail.

9. I broke my foot when a cement cinder block fell on it. I was in first grade, and for years afterwards I could also tell when it was going to rain. I still dont have full movement in that foot, and Ive been told it should be rebroken and reset. (uh, no thanks)

10. I was born on Halloween.

11. My least favorite holiday is Thanksgiving.

12. Ive always been an Anglophile, and Im amazed that I didnt pack up and move to England. Had that happened I wouldnt have a Kindle right now, so Its all good.

13. Ive never eaten lobster.

14. I used to have recurring nightmares about the flying monkeys from The Wizard of Oz.

15. Ive travelled all over the place, and it bugs me that my kids wont get the same travel opportunities that I did.

16. I still cant go into the unfinished basement at night: the goblins will grab my ankles as I ascend back up the stairs, after all.

17. I make a killer blue margarita.

18. I walk faster than most people, and when Im walking in a group I have to intentionally slowitdown. My definition of a long walk is an hour longer than everyone elses.

19. My parents rarely took photos of me and my brother. There are no birthday photos, no holiday photos, no first day of school photos. Cameras were used only on vacation, so we have some photos of us standing next to elevation signs. I, on the other hand, take TONS of photos and enhance them with Photoshop and Lightroom all the time.

20. My house is relatively clean and somewhat uncluttered, but I only dust when company is coming over. If I live to be 80, I doubt Ill say Gee, I should have dusted more often.

21. I'm an artist and many years ago, one of my paintings was stolen. It was a portrait of my boyfriend reading a book, and it bothers me that it's out there somewhere. It's one thing to sell a painting or paint a commissioned mural, it's quite another to be violated by theft. Part of me hopes that someone gessoed over the canvas and used it again.

22. I love getting mail, but I hate talking on the phone.
 
23. My biggest pet peeve is erasers that dont work. Its an eraser. Its supposed to erase.

24. I have given up on trying to grow tomatoes.

25. I can only sing Bob Dylan songs, which tells you plenty. I have no delusions about being a good singer.  :P

1. Most days I tend to prefer my 3 dogs to the drama's of my 15 year old daughter.

2. I donate more time and money to causes then I do to my own family sometimes.

3. My husband is a better wife then me. He can cook, clean and multitask, I just get frustrated.

4. I am an avid fan of "Gossip Girl" and I'm in my late 30's.

5. I am from Newfoundland, Canada. All the jokes about people in Canada are about us "Newfies". It's because we're able to laugh at ourselves with much more ease.

6. I believe that you should pay attention to your feelings and the hairs standing up on your neck. It's kept me out of a lot of trouble.

7. I'm terrified of squirrels. When we moved to Ontario when I was a child, I had never seen a squirrel as big as the ones here before. My father told me they were rats as a joke. I'm still not laughing 37 years later.

8. I work for GM and drive a company vehicle. The vehicle that I own is a Jeep Rubicon on 42" tires. I'm not allowed to park it at work.

9. I call him my husband but I refuse to get married.

10. I started reading as a child because my parents were going through a nasty divorce. Reading brought me to different places, adventures and timelines. I had more fictional friends that year then I had real ones.

11. My only hopes for my children is to be happy. I don't care about who they marry, what jobs they hold or how much money they earn. I want them to find joy in anyway they can and live it.

12. I do not follow politics at all. Doesn't matter what or who we vote for, we're still screwed.

13. When I was in grade 5 a teacher told me that I would end up in car sales because I could convince anyone to do anything. His prediction came through.

14. I have 2 children, one when I was in my teens. When I'm out with her and she calls me mom people think she's joking because I look more like her sister. I find it an insult, not a compliment.

15. I had my wisdom teeth out on Tuesday and was eating a steak on Wednesday.

16. I've cancelled Christmas at our house. We spend it in Mexico on a beach now instead.

17. I love Canada but I hate the snow.

18. My dream job would be to raise/breed labradors for service dogs and for women who have left abusive relationships. I believe dogs can heal you with a lick of their tongue.

19. Since I've got my kindle, I've been reading "smut" for the first time of my life. I like it.

20. I believed my parents loved my sister more growing up. Now that I have two children I realized she was just easier to love.

21. We have open lines of communication with our kids, they tell us just about everything. Now that my daughter is dating, I'd like to close the lines because it freaks me out a little.

22. I believe in guardian angels.

23. I can't watch scary movies.

24. The only books that I never finished that I started are Cujo, The Hobbit and the Bible.

25. I spend more time surfing forums lately then doing actual work.

Wow, I don't know if I can think up 25 facts about myself...

1. My first pet was a black and white pig named Zelda.

2. I love rodents, all kinds.

3. My favorite kind of music is Japanese rock music known as "Visual Kei" (Visual Style)

4. The only thing I'm really afraid of is the dentist.

5. I can't eat raw fish, because it evokes a gag response, but I can eat fish that has been lightly seared on the outside and is still raw in the middle.

6. I love to cook and bake, but bake far better than I cook.

7. I do not have MySpace, FaceBook, or any sort of social networking page, and probably never will.

8. My favorite video game series is Silent Hill.

9. I don't watch a lot of movies, I rarely ever see blockbusters or award winners.

10. I was two hours away from my appendix bursting when I had it removed 8 years ago.

11. Physically I take after my dad, and I look so little like my mom that nobody assumes we're mother and daughter. What's worse, is I resemble my roommate more than I resemble my mom, so people are consistently referring to me as "your daughter" to her.

12. I grew up on a ranch with several ponds, a creek running through the backyard and farmers for neighbors.

13. Though I was painfully shy for most of my life, I ended up being really good at suggestive sales.

14. I'm so nearsighted that if I take off my glasses, I cannot see the writing on the computer screen.

15. I do yoga.

16. My real name is so unique that if you google it there are no results.

17. I don't watch sitcoms. Ever. But I never miss Mythbusters or Dirty Jobs.

18. My favorite movie is Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas.

19. I tend to avoid things solely because the sheer popularity grates on my nerves. I never collected beanie babies, I refused to read Harry Potter for a very long time, and I will not touch Twilight.

20. For a short period of time I ran a Harry Potter Collectable Card Game tournament weekly at Wizards of the Coast when I worked there. The people who came to play were always young kids, and the most memorable was a little boy who couldn't actually read the cards, but would tell me what they did when he played them.

21. I'm big on Massive Multiplayer RPGs, but not World of Warcraft. I've played FFXI, Everquest, Dark Ages of Camelot, and currently play both Guild Wars and Everquest 2. (I'm on the Antonia Bayle server as Edihoicha if anyone wants to say hi.)

22. I have big, wide feet, and it's hard to fit me for shoes.

23. I have been going to a Rennaisance Faire at least once a year in the summer for as long as I can remember. I was only a few miles away from the one in Michigan, which is a very large, very involved, very fun faire, and my family always took me.

24. I have never traveled internationally, in fact the farthest I've ever been away from my home state of Michigan is here in California, where I moved a year and a half ago.

25. I type 60-80 words a minute, but I never have my fingers on the home keys. I leanred how to type properly in school, but it sort of devolved into what I do now, where I rarely use my ring finger on each hand, and only use the left-hand shift button. I have a feeling that if I tried to teach myself to type "properly" again, I would lose speed and accuracy.

Okay, well there's 25 I guess.
Not once in my life has my train of thought taken a straight path between point A and point B without stopping to visit Y and F along the way.

At first Ford had formed a theory to account for this strange behavior. If human beings don't keep exercising their lips, he thought, their mouths probably seize up.
After a few months' consideration and observation he abandoned this theory in favor of a new one. If they don't keep on exercising their lips, he thought, their brains start working.

Circulation librarians utilize the much simpler Harvey (William) Decimal System:

100-199  Arterial
200-299  Venal

I have been Dinged, eh.

Love my kids, beyond my understanding.

Grandkids.... totally amazing little folks.

Appreciate kindness.

Despise hatred.

Confused by people who cheat.

Can not abide liars.

Stuff is generally simply... just stuff.  Kindle is in a different class.

Cancer survivor.  Rare opportunity to reflect.

Once went out to buy a pair of shoes and returned with a piano.

Played the Cornet.  Band people are more fun.

Enjoyed my childrens weddings... Love the new spouses.

True friends are highly respected and valued.

Love to cook on high... yet, folks like my cooking.

Named after my grandmothers.  Was fortunate to know them.

First car was a 72 Mustang.

Can now outpace most 2 year olds, on my recumbant trike.  

Pet Peeve: Smokers who ignore the law.  Physically harms me.

I love beef.   Hate beets and liver.  Must eat fish.

Glass is half full, in spite of the broken bottom.

In awe of those who serve... military and teachers.

Still surprised I am not 17.

Uncanny inability to buy clothes that others will wear.

Son brought friends home, to watch me jump/scream when startled.

I love balls.  Always carry one.  

Enjoy puzzles and Sudoku.   Kakuro makes me nuts.

3. I am usually the smartest person in the room. (IQ is around 145.)

This is only true when she's not at home.  LR will admit this. ;)
At first Ford had formed a theory to account for this strange behavior. If human beings don't keep exercising their lips, he thought, their mouths probably seize up.
After a few months' consideration and observation he abandoned this theory in favor of a new one. If they don't keep on exercising their lips, he thought, their brains start working.

I have never been told what my IQ is, I have no idea what it is.  While I know I am one of the smartest people around here, I have been around people much smarter than me.

A Navy GTC score of 68 qualifies for Mensa. You must have scored that or higher to qualify as a diver.

I wasn't being evil.  It was a statement of fact.  LR borders on genius.  I blow her away.  She will admit this in a few minutes.

I learned SCUBA on my own. The Navy didn't teach me that.
