In Case You're New Here

Over a year ago (right after I started this blog) I posted "25 Things That I Should Be Ashamed Of".  And because I've gained about 70 followers since then, and there are updates on a few of these, I figured I'd repost the list.  So here it is:

1. At one point in my life, I knew every line from Jim Carrey's smash-hit comedy, "The Mask."

2. I have blamed my gas on my sleeping son.

3. I owned Lou Bega's album, "A Little Bit of Mambo."  It was stolen from my locker in high school, and I still miss it sometimes.

4. I'm horrible at guessing movie plot twists. I didn't guess the ending to "The Sixth Sense", "The Usual Suspects", or "Who Framed Roger Rabbit."

5. I don't know who my congressman is.

6. Even though I shouldn't like them, I like Eminem, Kid Rock, and the smell of gasoline.

7. I fell for the "updog" joke in eighth grade... twice.

8. I am 6'3" and weigh 260 pounds, but I am an excellent dancer. I can even do "The Worm." I will never prove this to anyone.

9. I have an extensive collection of sports cards.

10. I've gotten 12 traffic tickets and two warnings.

11. I have no idea what the difference is between mayonnaise and Miracle Whip. But I will argue with people about which is better just for fun. I do the same with butter and margarine.

12. I have used the same kind of deodorant for 10 years. (This one isn't true anymore.  I tried Old Spice once since then and realized it's my dad's cologne.  But I only realized it after I put it on.  So I smelled like my dad for a full 24 hours.)

13. I had a favorite elevator at my last job.

14. I think fireworks are stupid, boring, and pointless.

15. When I see someone fall down, my first instinct is to laugh. My second is to look for a fellow onlooker to laugh with. My third is to wonder if the person is alright.

16. I lost my bowling ball. I have no idea where it is. How do you lose a 14-lb. black stone with your name on it?  (Update: I went back to the one place I ever bowled with that ball and they said they didn't have it.  And they never throw away a lost ball.  So now I know it was stolen.)

17. I have cried while watching a reality TV show.  I won't say what show it was, but the name started with a "B". (And it ended with an "iggest Loser".)

18. I saw Destiny's Child in concert.

19. I saw New Kids on the Block in concert.

20. I have an English degree, but I can't name any books I finished in college besides the Harry Potter series.

21. I have never beaten Super Mario Brothers from the original Nintendo.

22. I have an English degree because the day I had to decide on a major, I was three blocks away from the Political Science office and one floor away from the English office.

23. Taco Bell is one of my favorite places to eat.

24. I don't trust short people who are really quiet.

25. I've been blogging for over a year.

Having a favorite elevator rocks and I have never beaten Super Mario Brothers either. I am short but I'm not quiet. Not even sort of quiet. I do have fat feet and I too have been blogging for about a year but you are way better at it than me and have twice as many followers. My one saving grace is apparently I am your biggest fan. :)
