I've had such a nice time reading all of your lists, I hope that tons of people post their own, as it's such a treat to learn new things about my DC friends. Thanks for creating this thread lmw80

1.) I am the oldest child of 3, and also the oldest (first degree) grandchild and cousin on both sides.

2.) The night that I was born there was a thunderstorm, and I have always loved thunderstorms to no end (I swear I can feel them coming in the air and my mood changes)

3.) I kissed my first love when I was 9, but I married my true love many years later (dif people)

4.) If I lived in the Renaissance I would have the “perfect” figure

5.) I once spent the summer working in a historical gold mining ghost town in BC, called Barkerville

6.) My mother is my biggest hero, and we are both survivors of domestic abuse

7.) I live in chronic pain (lol, that is not a euphemism for being married), but I don't let it control my whole life

8.) I love “old school” snail mail and write lots of letters on paper every month

9.) I secretly still wish that women wore long gowns and beautiful dresses, they were so gorgeous and elegant looking

10.) I used to live in the same town (and swim in the same lake) as the Ogopogo (a lake "monster" that is thought to be a lot like the Loch Ness Monster)
