ABOUT ME

I needed to do an “About Me’ page, so I made a bunch of changes to my 101 things.  Is that cheating?  I really don’t care:

 

  1. I am the youngest of 3.
  2. My brother and sister are 5 and 7 years older than me.
  3. We get along pretty well as far as siblings go.
  4. We are 5th Generation San Franciscans.
  5. I never knew if I wanted kids until almost the last minute.
  6. I now have a son, Finn, who is the light in my life.
  7. My husband, Sasha is OK, too.
  8. I am still the same person as before I became a mom.
  9. Except now I go to bed much earlier.
  10. I guess I have to get up earlier, too.
  11. No more sleeping in until noon.
  12. That is probably the hardest part.
  13. I like to sleep.
  14. The wife part probably changed me the most due to the domestic stuff I would rather avoid.
  15. I would eat cereal for dinner if it was just me.
  16. Suddenly I am a chef.
  17. I work full time helping people with cancer.
  18. It is rewarding but the company is always broke, because helping does not pay.
  19. I was a stalker as a teenager.
  20. Too awkward to talk to boys I liked, I would crank call them.
  21. I am glad I do not do that anymore.
  22. Caller ID sort of ruined that, anyway.
  23. I did not learn to ride a bike until I was 8 years old.
  24. The day I learned, there was an earthquake.

  32. I am notoriously lazy.
  33. My high school history teacher, Mr. Boynton called me an underachiever in front of the whole class.
  34. I said: “You don’t know my life” bitch.
  35. He agreed.
  36. I never wanted to be a brain surgeon, rocket scientist, Congressman, so what?
  37. It was not as bad as when the nun in 5th grade dumped the contents of my messy desk out in the middle of class & made me clean it up in front of everyone.
  38. That was humiliating.
  39. The 8th grade nun separated her class in order of good kids to bad kids.

  63. Her entire family surrounded her as she left this world.
  64. I am grateful for that everyday.

    Online diaries go to Google heaven when we die.
    As a kid I was afraid of being sent to Catholic school. A big kid told me they had a Hell room. I even went out of my way not to walk by the neighborhood one for years after I knew the truth lol

  2. Kevin Says:

    #25 – I was SO looking forward to the aftershocks.

    #100 – It’s weird, a friend of mine died just over a year ago. I went to his MySpace page earlier this morning. It’s still there, unchanged, frozen in time. There aren’t even any new comments because he set his page to require approval first before they posted. There are probably a thousand memorial messages pending in MySpace limbo.

  3. Eleanor Says:

    I think online diaries float around like orphans, always looking for their parents, never finding them. How sad. I just depressed myself. Nice list.

  4. Miss Hiss Says:

    Interestingly, I’ve been monitoring the online diaries of two friends who’ve died over the eighteen months. I (somewhat obsessively, some might say) check their diaries every week or so, just to see what’s happened. So far, there have been no updates. I shall keep watching, though, just in case. Love, R xxx

    You ARE a good friend, I can vouch! Even if we’re just blips and bleeps and bloops to each other.
