eighty and beyond

#80. i am never late. never. for anything. actually i'm usually very very early. makes my friends crazy. and they make me crazy for not being on time!!! come on people.

#79. i eat sandwiches (and toast) from the bottom up. don't know why just do

#78. i love my mother-in-law. she is one of my best friends. i told you i was weird!! no i'm just lucky

#77. i watch the same movies over and over. and over and over. because i live with 3 male's i never get to see the girlie movies that i like so when they are not home or gone to bed i watch them. and they are (in no particular order)
Pretty Woman
My Big Fat Greek Wedding
Mean Girls
13 Going on 30
Clueless
Legally Blond
The Parent Trap (Hailey Mills version)

#76. i plan on stealing a lot of my #100 things from my sister. i mean we are only 13 months apart so many of the things she lists, have to do with me too! (see #75)

#75. i HATE when people clap to a slow song. it's a slow song. sway back and forth...wave a lighter....but don't clap! i think my hatred of clapping in general comes from my mom. she claps at everything. planes landing, movie endings, a funny line. and she does just do the "aw, that's funny" clap, clap, clap... it's more like clap, clap, clap, clap, clap, clap, clap, clap, clap, clap, clap, clap, clap, clap, clap, clap, clap, clap, clap, clap, clap, clap, clap, clap, clap,.... yeah. seriously. she claps first, loudest, and finishes last. it's awesome. especially when you're in a crowded movie. and don't get me started on her waving from the audience when you're on stage in a choral program (i changed that last part to fit my #100 things!) :)

#74. i love punctuation. especially !!!!!!!. i will use an exclamation point all the way to the end of the screen. and some times i will mix it up with a few question marks. and i love smilies. :)

#73. when i was younger i was a horse freak. yes freak is the appropriate term here. i dreamed about owning a horse for years. i had horse shirts, models, coloring books, stuffed horses, books, magazines, you name it i had it. i saved all my allowance to buy horse stuff. then one year we went to B&R Ranch for summer camp. and they had horses. oh my gosh i was so excited. they put me up on one and it started trotting. i freaked out and would not get back on one the rest of the summer. i'm over it now.

#72. my mom, my sister and i went to see the Black Stallion movie way back in 1979. of course i was totally stoked because i had read all the Black Stallion books 100 times. so we're in the theater and it's really good. then there is a part where alec is looking for the black and my mom YELLS OUT IN THE THEATER "whistle for him!!!" melissa and i were mortified. she was so freaking LOUD!!! and then we went to see E.T. oh my gosh. she was sobbing so loud i could not even enjoy the movie. what a mess.

#73. we lived in tampa when i was young. and in the summer my mom would not turn on the a/c because we could not afford it. she would get a cup of water and sprinkle it over our beds before we went to sleep. oh yeah that helped. and that was before the days of ceiling fans. florida sucks.

#72. as long as i can remember whenever i get a song stuck in my head i start singing "I Can't Get You Out of My Mind". it's got to be from the 70's but i have no idea who sung it and those are the only lyrics i can remember. but it works!!!

#75. OOOOOOOOooh!!! Does your mom clap loud? I can clap really loud, it's the Oprah clap -- I learned it when I went to Oprah. Shows like that have a "warm up" person and they come out before the show and show you how to clap loud and tell you to make an interested face if you want to up your chances for getting on camera.

check it out next time you watch Oprah, they will pan on someone who's face is frozen in serious interest or shock.

let me know if you want me to teach your mom how to clap loud.

goodness no...mom is a GREAT loud clapper...if you're into that kind of thing. which i'm not.

eating from the bottom up...that'd be easy with most things except ice cream cones. that'd get messy.

as for being on time, i getcha sistah...i getcha.

and yes, everyone. she was a horse freak. and i remember B&R ranch. that place freaked me out. i dont think it was the horses...i think it was bc the in the bathrooms, the walls didnt go all the way up to the ceiling, so i always was afraid boys would climb up there and watch me pee. #100 thing you didnt know about me.... i used to have nightmares about having to pee in a room full of toilets in front of other people. yes, i hate peeing around others.
