Fifteen Random Things Meme

So, here's my response to Inktopia's meme. I'm supposed to tell fifteen random things about me. Here goes:

1. I want television to be my scholarly niche.

2. I've never kept a plant alive for more than six months or so.

3. It would make me really happy if my house were organized like a kindergarten class room.

4. I don't like to have the food on my plate touching.

5. I also generally don't eat the last bite or two of a dish. It's usually mushy and undesireable by the end of the meal.

6. I really, really wish I were a native speaker of another language.

7. When I was a little girl, I tried Pepsi and milk, just like Laverne from "Laverne and Shirley"; it actually wasn't bad.

8. I don't like wine all that much, but I think wine glasses are so pretty.

9. I think biscuits and molasses are divine.

10. Flowy skirts are one of my favorite things to wear.

11. I thought Pinky Tuskadaro (which I have probably misspelled) was the coolest name ever.

12. One day, I want to pack a bag, go to the airport, and pick a destination.

13. Should I have a third baby?! (I know that's not a fact, but it's on my mind)

14. I'm in the process of trying to change my diet to see if I can control these dadblasted migraines. Last month I eliminated pork and beef completely. This month I'm reducing sugar. It's the hardest. Haven't yet decided what I'll change next month.

15. I want a house with a porch.

Freaky. I was for some reason just thinking about Pinky Tuskadoro a few days ago.

Re: #14: I've found that when I reduce sugar (significantly) I have fewer headaches. Hope it works for you.

Awesome list!!

I always wanted to do the double finger snap of Pinky T and her friend...

Ink said...

ps: Food not touching is just good sense. ;)

And I hope your migraines go away!

#12, packing a bag and going to the airport would be soooo cool. You should do it! Soon. Before you have that third baby. (So, the answer is "yes" to #13).

Thanks for the positive thoughts, P and Ink! I'm working on the sugar, but I cheat on the weekends . . . .

And TD, dare to dream. That applies to both #12 and #13, I think.
