    Okay, 25 things:

    1. I drive a 2003 Mini Cooper S, British Racing Green.  Absolutely love it!
    2. I'm a graduate of The Ohio State University.  Go Bucks!
    3. I'm the proud wife of a U.S. Marine. Semper Fi!
    4. I have two adorable sons, ages three and one.  The three's are much worse than the two's!
    5. We have an English Mastiff, 8 months old and 100 lbs.  His name is Brutus (see number two)!
    6. My 11th great-grandparents came over on the Mayflower, John Alden and Priscilla Mullins.
    7. I'm addicted to reading a message board for people with an device that I have on order but haven't received yet.  ::)
    8. I want to learn to speak Spanish.  I took four years of it in high school, but I don't remember very much.
    9. If I could have any occupation in the world, I'd be a primatolgist.  The problem is that I don't like bugs, humidity, or going without showers!
    10. I think I'm a pretty boring person, and making this list has made me realize that I was correct!
    11. In high school I played volleyball for a few years, before I got cut.  I threw the discus and shot put on our track team.  I wasn't any good, but there weren't very many of us, so I still got a varsity letter ;D
    12. I like to rubberstamp and make greeting cards, but all my stuff has been packed away for over a year to make room for my one year old.
    13. My parents took me to see Phantom of the Opera when it played in Cleveland.  I cried at the beginning when the chandelier lit up and rose from the stage. I was just excited to be there!
    14. I visited Moab, Utah, this past October for my husband's Jeep club event.  The national parks there are absolutely beautiful.  Too much in the middle of no where for me, so I wouldn't want to live there, but would love to go back to visit.
    15. I'm the saver in the family, and my husband is the spender.  Must be the accounting degree that helps me pinch those pennies!
    16. Though I don't enjoy talking about politics, I am willing to concede that the guy I voted for won!
    17. I played the trumpet, frumpet and French horn in high school band.  I took piano lessons when I was younger.  I wish I hadn't stopped.
    18. I also took ballet lessons when I was in elementary school.  I really wish I hadn't stopped this either.  I was one year away from toe shoes!
    19. I don't like blood or needles.  I passed out a few times when they drew blood during my pregnancies.
    20. My husband and I are high school sweethearts.  :-*
    21. I turned 30 last month, which I hear is the new 20.  I guess that's good, because when I was 20 I was too busy going to school and working to put myself through school to have any fun.  But now that I'm 30, but actually 20, I have two young children and work full-time to help pay the bills, so I still don't have time to have fun!  :-\
    22. I think about getting a tattoo sometimes, but then I remember number 19.
    23. I have a younger brother that lives about 45 minutes away from me, but I see him just as much as my parents do, and they live 12 hours away!
    24. Apparently, I snore.  At my husband's request, I use nose strips and they seem to help because he says he doesn't hear me any more.
    25. I'm a converted Steeler's fan.  I was a Brown's fan up until they left Cleveland.  With no one to cheer for, I started watching the Steelers with my husband and his family, and now I'm a proud member of Steeler Nation!

    That was just as hard as I thought it was going to be!

    Ok I have been dinged!!  I think this will be fun :)

    1.  I was born at 12:00 noon on Christmas Day in St. Louis, Mo., we have a traditional christmas morning and then celebrate my birthday at noon (yes I do get birthday gifts and usually not combined).  However, I only remember 1 birthday party growing up and I was about 5 years old I think.

    2.  I am #3 of 7 kids.  Two older sisters, three younger brothers and another sister, all living except the youngest who died just prior to her 19th birthday after battling Lymphoma for 5 years.  All of us were born in St. Louis except the two youngest, my parents moved to Tucson, AZ when Dad got a job at Hughes Aircraft Co., we have lived here ever since.

    3.  When I was a baby I won a beauty contest, (go figure) my parents received professional photos as the prize, one B/W and 1 colorized.

    4.  I started singing at a very young age and was always in the school chorus and church choirs.  Can't sing for beans now.

    5.  I took accordion lessons as a child and still have my accordion if I play now it is mostly play by ear .  My grandchildren like for me to play for them but I'm not very confident about playing in front of others even them.

    6.  I met my husband in chorus class when we were freshman in high school we went "steady" for about a month and then broke up.  My parents wouldn't let me date until I turned 16, we were Juniors in high school, I was invited to a New Years Eve party and could bring a date so asked my future husband if he would like to go with me and the rest is history.  We never dated anyone else and were married before he went to Vietnam.  Tragically I lost him last year in February after his battle of 3 years with cancer, we were married for 37 years.  Last year was not a good year as I also lost my mom in June.

    7.  I wasn't able to attend a University but graduated from Business College and have spent my working career in various offices.  I worked for a Title company for 13 years before moving to a Law Firm to supervise their Trustee's Sales department, I was there for 3 years and then worked for Sears Telecatalog for 3 years and am now working at an Aerial Surveying and Mapping Company and will celebrate 16 years with this company on the 17th of this month, I love my job. 

    8.  I have known my best girl friend since we were in 5th grade, we have shared just about everything together.

    9.  My husband was stationed at Ft. Bragg in North Carolina and we spent 16 months there.  While there we traveled to Washington DC twice and loved site seeing throughout the area.  We decided that it was a great place to visit but didn't want to live there.  We live in the desert and it was way too humid in N.C.

    10.  I have two beautiful daughters, Dawn the oldest is 33 and Mary the youngest is 28.  Between them they have given me 5 beautiful grandchildren, 4 girls and 1 boy.  Taylor the oldest is 11, Leah 9 and their brother Jonathan 7 are Dawn's kids and Mary's kids are Mina just turned 11 and her sister Encina is 6.  Mary named Mina after a charactor in Bram Stoker's Dracula story and I'm not sure just where she found Encina's name.  Both are beautiful.

    11.  Early on we decided that we would have no more children after reaching 30 years old because we didn't want to be raising teenagers when we were 50.  Ironically when our Dawn was a junior in high school she joined the marching band as a color guard member and we became parent volunteers (I was band booster president for 3 years).  Mary played flute and in her sophomore year became the band drum major for the next 3 years.  That was 6 years and we loved it so much we volunteered for a total of 13 years until husband became sick and we had to stop.  We probably would still be there if things had been different.

    12.  One of my most favorite things to do is attend Marching Band Competitions, at times it seems that I live for the marching season and can hardly wait for the next weekend and competition.  In August of 2007 my husband and I took a trip to Pasadena for the DCI National Band Competition and were able to attend the Semifinals and Finals.  It was great!!  Don't know if I will ever get to attend again since they have committed to Indianapolis for the next 13-14 years.

    13.  The first book I remember reading was Sleeping Beauty, my parents gave me the book when I was sick at home with the Chicken Pox in about 2ND grade.  I loved it and named my oldest daughter Dawn because of this book.

    14.  I had a library card as a child for as long as I can remember and used to go regularly to the library as often as possible, would check out the limit of books allowed.  I read all the Nancy Drew,  Little House on the Prairie books I could get my hands on.  (Have read all of them)  I also enjoyed Black Beauty, Little Women and too many others to list, once I started to read I didn't pay attention to anything else, Mom has told me that she would call me to do something for her and I never heard her if I was reading.

    15.  My favorite place to visit is Disneyland.  I have been there every year since 2004.  The best time to visit is between Halloween and New Years, the place is decked out for the Holidays and is beautiful.

    16.  I have little dog (chihuahua and terrier mix) looks like a Corgi and stands about 16 inches tall.  Murphy has "little/big dog syndrome".  Even if he is the smallest dog in the joint he will challenge the biggest/toughest dog, this has created some interesting moments in obedience class.  During his first class we spent more time in "time out" in the hallway than in class, he now is in intermediate class and as long as the other dogs are laid back, he can control his attitude during sessions.

    17.  I didn't expect this to be as hard as it has proven to be.  I feel like I'm running out of things to say.

    18.  I have enjoyed reading the KindleBoards and think that you people are extremely funny.  You start a thread about the simplest things and the next thing you know there are 5/6+/- pages with every angle you can think of.  Sometimes I get lost trying to keep up with the original thought or spend more time laughing than reading.  I love the easy banter between some of you, I don't have the quickness of thought to respond to a statement before 4/5 others have said or expressed the same thing I wanted to say.

    19.  I love to watch home improvement programs on TV, however, I have done very little of it myself.  My husband and I had our kitchen remodeled about 2 years ago but I didn't have it finished until November 2008.

    20.  I don't drink alcohol (can't stand the taste of it) however I do enjoy a Margarita about once a year.  I have never smoked anything and don't see any reason to start now, the smell turns my stomach.

    21.  Love to cook but don't have anyone to cook for on a daily basis so not as much fun now as it used to be.

    22.  I received my Kindle the end of October (yes I utilized Oprah's discount & the next day delivery and received it on time).  Love, love, love it.  WhisperNet is the best, I don't have any problem holding it and changing pages is effortless, I find that I don't even think of it so it doesn't feel any different from reading a DTB.

    23.  I have always read historical romance novels and since I received my kindle I have developed my interest in Dragon books.  I also have several authors I follow and have been trying to download their books but find it frustrating that if you want to read a series of books there is often times only one or two books in Kindle edition and there is one or two that are not.  I have been requesting them in Kindle edition but I don't like to wait for the book.

    24.  I have always had a love for music and listen to just about every genre there is from rap to opera, however, I will not listen to filthy rap, no excuse for it.

    25.  My biggest dream is to travel someday.  There is so much of this country that I haven't seen and would like to that I really have little desire to travel outside of the U.S.

    This exercise has been enlightening and cathartic, thank you for the opportunity to share.  Hope I wasn't too windy.

    It was Drum Corps for me.  I followed The Cadets way back when they were the Garfield Cadets.  It seems like they have always been champions.  My Dad and I used to travel around N.J. in the summer for the competitions. 

    I miss watching DCI on PBS.  They used to broadcast it on Thanksgiving, but they don't anymore, and I can never seem to find it.  Once in a while I'll find something on youtube, but the camera work has gotten shoddy and the sound is awful.  Maybe it's just youtube.

    11.  Early on we decided that we would have no more children after reaching 30 years old because we didn't want to be raising teenagers when we were 50.  Ironically when our Dawn was a junior in high school she joined the marching band as a color guard member and we became parent volunteers (I was band booster president for 3 years).  Mary played flute and in her sophomore year became the band drum major for the next 3 years.  That was 6 years and we loved it so much we volunteered for a total of 13 years until husband became sick and we had to stop.  We probably would still be there if things had been different.
    I too loved working with my kids high school band.  I started band when I was in high school (flute) and had to give it up because of my sister's constant hospitalizations.  So when the opportunity opened up for my then husband and I to become parent chaparones, I jumped on it.  My way of being in the band without having to march.  Those were the most rewarding years.  We got to do a total of 7 years, with an amazing amount of trips.  Disney World 3 or 4 times, Disney Land once, The Rose Bowl Parade, an inaugural parade, Toronto, Canada, and the list goes on and on.  Although my favorite time of year was band camp.  I loved band camp.

    you can't put "18. My toes are orange and that's since Halloween..." in your 25 things and not explain how you still have orange toes!

    It's called gangrene and it isn't polite to point out.  >:(
    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.

    23. I was in labor with my son from Thursday morning until Saturday at 5am - hence the reason he is currently and only child  ;)

    Went into labor very early Thursday morning; went into work to do payroll otherwise nobody would have gotten their checks that week (most importantly, me).  My daughter was born Saturday at 6:35am.  And that's why there are five years between my children.

    I feel your pain.   :D

    Gangrene is black.

    I think she had a Halloween pedicure and still has the orange polish. That's my guess!

    2. Im deathly afraid of the dentist. The last time I went I let him take 1 wisdom tooth out, but not the other.
    3. I love tyedye. I should have been born way before my time.
    4. I find school rewarding, but in a masochistic kinda way. The more it makes me bang my head on the desk, the better.
    5. Anything bloody, oozey, or [kitten] (purulent for all you med students) is the best thing in the world to me.
    6. I hate wearing my hair down. It itches and gets in the way of more important things.
    7. I can't let certain foods touch.... like I eat my spaghetti noodles and sauce seperate.
    8. Country is my all time fave cause I think I can sing! haha but I can tolerate and enjoy anything in a given mood.
    9. I have never had a surgery besides the pulling of teeth.
    10. I have a scar on my foot that required 13 stitches. Some skinny girl dropped a clothing rack on it... I bled all over the place and was a retard and just stared at it haha. I was 16....
    11. I shaved my head in high school
    12. I like to hurt my ankles when inebriated. Apparently I a clutzy drunk.

    14. I was a drama geek in high school.
    15. I still have my first car (the purple people eater: its a purple honda civic) but wish it was a Jeep instead.
    16. I plan everything around my dogs. They are my life and I would die without them.
    17. I secretly fear of being Vet School. Im worried I won't be smart enough, or that I will have bad relationships with my teachers and peers. I kinda have OCD about my grades, so Im worried my first B will kill me.
    18. Chuck and I married after only dating for 1 year and 1 month.... Love at first sight! But we didnt tell our parents until after we were married for 2 years ish.
    19. I love old school video games. If any game has Yoshi in it, I have to be him.
    20. I spent 19 straight hours on a couch playing Paper Mario on the wii, and neglected all other duties.
    21. I reread good books, and rewatch awesome movies.
    22. I love terrible tv... like fullhouse, 7th heaven, the Secret Life of the American teenager. Anything with corny morals!
    23. I ran away when I was 16 with my first "love". We made it all the way to Colorado. That was stupid.

    2 ; I read three books at one time; and I am unsure of how the Kindle will work that out with me. By at time I mean all three are open at once.

    3 ; People get annoyed easily when they are near me in real life. I have a mechanical valve. >_>.

    4 ; I am an administator with AboutUs.org

    5 ; If I feel a new site has potential I will purchase a domain name for them and keep paying for it even though if I leave and they remain active and I ask for no credit back.

    6 ; I hate amusement parks.

    7 ; I love to travel...as long as there is internet.

    8 ; I am in love with SciFi with things such as Andromeda, Firefly, Stargate, Sanctuary.

    9 ; I wrote a few short stories for my classes back in high school, to this day my teachers want me to write a novel based around the worlds my short stories were in.

    10 ; I have a great skill in manipulation in writing. I can take the smallest detail and make it mean the entire world and rip it apart, emotionally.

    11 ; I am nineteen years of age. Twenty in May.

    12 ; I have two siblings that are nineteen. They are twins. I am not a twin.

    13 ; My dad's family tree is traced to c1650 inside the United States.

    14 ; My mom's family tree has been traced town to roughly 1066 to Switzerland.

    15 ; I am a decendent of Jessie and Earl Clark; widely known Four Square ministers. No you cannot have a copy of their bibles.

    16 ; I am the only atheist in my family.

    17 ; I am supposed to be dead.

    18 ; With 17; I was supposed to die within my first week of life.

    19 ; With 18; I am 7202 days old and still alive.

    20 ; The one remaining health condition I have is still uncurable, but has been slowed with a mechanical vavle.

    21 ; I want to get a Kindle.

    22 ; I have very messy handwriting. Only five people I have ever known can read it, three good friends, two teachers.

    23 ; Teachers made me type my homework and notes and anything and sometimes tests due to my messy handwriting.

    24 ; I can type faster then I can write.

    25 ; I speak random French and complex English words at time without knowing it.

    GertieKindle,

    I love Drum Corp!  You can find out all about their activities through their website dci.org.  They have a newsletter your can sign up for to keep up to date with everything.  We have a corps here in Arizona "The Academy" that is terrific.

    As for H.S. marching band and band in general that was one of the most fulfilling experiences (outside of family) of my life.  I actually had withdrawals after the seasons were over.  In the 13 years we were involved I never missed a band trip for anything that they did, games, concerts, competitions etc.  My oldest granddaughter also enjoys going to marching competitions and has ambitions to be in the colorguard like her mother.

    10. I think I'm a pretty boring person, and making this list has made me realize that I was correct!
    If that's the case, then everyone must have skipped over mine; all I could talk (type) about was family and being Itallian--dumb ones at that!!  Talk about B-O-R-I-N-G

    B-KAY:  I'm so sorry for your losses :(  I bet most people wish they could enjoy 37 years like you did.  I too, met my husband at barely 16 and I'm 46 a month from tomorrow.  Our marriage has outlasted everyone of his brothers and his sister...and they were making nasty bets on the church steps while the rice was still being thrown.  Guess I showed them.  4 for 5 ding ding for me.

    That sounds a bit tacky to me.  Maybe I'm wrong.

    No, you're right Vamp.  Taking bets at the church about whether the marriage will last is Definitely Tacky.
