Can I be late to my own party?

So it turns out this is my 103rd post. Apparently, while I was (as usual) not paying attention, I blew right past my 100th post. No big huge announcement, no confetti came shooting out of my computer or nuthin’. You’d think that since it’s such a big deal they’d a threw me a party or something. I guess this is the equivalent of turning 21 in the blogging world. I’M A BIG GIRL NOW bloggy friends. I’ve made it past the 100th mark.

Anyways, I heard the accepted thing is 100 things about me, but uh…I’m not that interesting. So how about some random junk?

1. I got my first tattoo when I was 18. I worked in Hollywood as a telemarketer, and one day, on my way to my car, I stopped in and got a tattoo of The Man's name (no, we weren’t married yet -He in turn, went out and got my name tattooed across his heart. True Love. ). That tattoo shop had a GINORMOUS live snake crawling around. I never told my Mom. She found out a year later when went shopping and I was trying on clothes.

2. I have a (sub)total of five tattoos. 2 on the left, 2 on the right and one in the middle. I didn't want to be heavier with more ink on one side.
I don't have a picture of the one on my shoulder. But I've got one there too. And I want 2 more.

3. When I married The Man, I had no idea that I was signing up for the Marine Corps too. I've had to get up at 3AM to take him down to formations, my presence is required at Formal functions, I've moved almost everywhere the Man was (my favorite? Honolulu), I was his support when he was overseas and I even attended most of his re-enlistment ceremonies.

4. I love to go to Vegas. I’m going this weekend. And then, in a few months, I’m going back for a concert.

5. Concerts in Vegas are the best.

6. This year I already have tickets for No Doubt and Depeche Mode. I’m going to sell my youngest child for U2 tickets, or maybe Prince if he actually has concert dates and not random places where I can’t see him because I don’t have enough time to make arrangements. (I’m still a little bitter at his Oscar after-party. Really? What about your fans who DON’T live in Hollywood? I’m good, but even I don’t fight the Oscar traffic)

7. I get up to go to gym at 4:30-5ish. Depends on how long I stumble around trying to wake up.

8. I go to bed “I’m 90 years old” early. I frequently fall asleep before the Brat; whose bedtime is official bedtime is 9PM. I’m sure she sometimes stays up later, but she just better hope I don’t wake up and find her still awake.

9.I own this shirt.
I totally believe it.

10. I’ve never danced with the devil in the pale moonlight (Name that movie quote!) But I once danced with a guy who 2 months later murdered his girlfriend & then had a stand off with the police in a cemetery. (I was completely surprised that he was crazy..he seemed so normal)

11. My husband only believes 2/3 of the things I tell him.

12. Maybe because 1/3 of the stuff I tell him is bullshit.

13. Maybe not.

14. I’m dying to go to Spain, Italy & France. But my friend lives in Okinawa, so I’m going to go crash on her couch and probably cook, because I don’t like Japanese food. (But I will probably love sightseeing. Please pencil me in for next summer!) I’ll probably still make it to Spain and Italy AND France.

15. I’m an ultra-picky eater raising human garbage disposals. I don’t like lettuce or nuts and I won’t eat anything I haven’t smelled first. My kids eat almost everything. (The Boy doesn’t like potatoes (weird, right?) not even fries and The Brat won’t drink milk. But she loves yogurt AND cheese)

16. I’m also an inappropriate laugher. I once started laughing uncontrollably at my god-daughters baptism. I couldn’t stop even though my husband was squeezing my hand so tight I almost lost feeling in it (His “gentle reminder” to stop that g.d. laughing. It didn't work)

17. I have a pretty awesome shoe collection. Unfortunately I can’t wear most of them because of an accident that crippled me, and so I am wearing flats until my foot is fully healed. (Hurry up, foot! I wanna buy me some new shoes)

I didn’t number this one because how can you have a random post with an even number. If I ever decide to write some MORE random junk (yah, like everything I write is not random), then I guess I can start at 18. Unless I don’t feel like it. Then you’ll have to count however many more random things I write and add 17.

Did I mention I was goin’ to Vegas? ‘Cause I am. Carry on.

Boring? AS if. I find you endlessly fascinating, and I acutally MEAN that! I love your blog, and congrats on 103 posts! :)

Okay, I totally got a tattoo when I turned 18, loved it so I refused to let myself get more (was afraid they would mess with my lawyer ambitions.) I hate milk but love cheese, yogurt, and cottage cheese. And I have a boy that hates potatoes. Oh, my ex went to prison for selling cocaine. I didn't know he did drugs much less sold them in large quantities.

It's always so neat to learn random stuff about other people. :) Happy 103rd!

Congrats on getting to a hundred! And thanks for reminding me that I'm supposed to go get my next tattoo priced tomorrow. I had forgotten to write it down, so I owe you one!

This was a great list! And happy belated 100th as well :) I love concerts, and we are planning to see Coldplay in July. I'm ecstatic, especially since having Noob Baby, "wild concerts" have been zilch. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Movie quote: from Batman - I believe it was the Jack Nicholson Joker to be exact - right before a kick ass Prince song started....

My mom found out my nipples were pierced when I forgot to wear a bra and she asked me why I had four nipples....Doh!

Lump said...

This 103rd post rocked WAY MORE than many of the 100 posts I've read....perhaps you should start a new trend....everyone skips 100th post and just celebrates 103 now... :)
