98 Things: Part One

I know, I know … normal people write about 100 Things.  But I want to leave some space for spontaneity so I am going to list 98 Things about whatever comes to mind.  Just the thought of counting that high, at this moment, wears me out.

  1. Went to bed after midnight.  No alcohol involved.
  2. Woke up at 5 am this morning to bake.
  3. Cooking with garlic at 5 am makes me gag.
  4. I love my bed because it is poofy like a marshmallow and I sink into it.
  5. When my daughters come over/home, they think I’m too skinny and don’t have any food in the pantry.  The too skinny part is correct but I’m trying to put on some weight; the pantry part would be incorrect.  I don’t have any food they like in the pantry.
  6. I am not strong.  I have to be, especially lately, but I would rather not have circumstances that require so much emotional strength training.  Like who wouldn’t?
  7. I love hidden object and match-3 computer games; at the moment, my favorites are Pastry Passion, Go Go Gourmet, 2 Tasty, and Alchemy Deluxe (not a hog or match).
  8. In the 8th grade, my friend, KK, and I made a requirement list of qualities the men we would marry would have to possess.  I still have it.  We were insane and obviously operating with zero info on the male species.
  9. I used to win contests.  You have to enter to win.  I won a national contest and they sent me a big check.  Note to contenders:  the government gets 1/2 – or at least it did when I was winning.
  10. I don’t want to be famous or infamous.
  11. Prayer is powerful. Period.
  12. Am an emotional person, but not terribly sentimental.  So there is no excuse for all the junk around here.
  13. I think Bulgari au the blanc smells absolutely beautiful.
  14. Am so challenged when it comes to make-up; don’t like it, feels like I’m being embalmed from the outside in.  Need to wear it so I don’t scare animals and small children but most of the time I don’t. Wear it.  Can’t speak for animals/children. 
  15. Movies I can’t watch again:  Gone With The Wind, Knocked Up, Green Dolphin Street, Citizen Kane, The Wizard of Oz.
  16. Movies I watch more than twice:  Under the Tuscan Sun, All About Eve, Sunset Boulevard, In America, Saving Grace, Waiting for Guffman, Bull Durham.
  17. I think A. J. Jacob’s first book was brilliantly funny.
  18. I will never understand Some People.  Got it.
  19. Never say “never” or “always”.  For obvious reasons.
  20. When meat is fully cooked, it’s “done”; when everything else is completed, it is “finished”.

And due to bread-induced sleep deprivation, I will finish my list tomorrow. Maybe.
