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)

7. My 21st anniversary is February 23rd.

I'll give you a bad anal thing about me. I absolutely CANNOT sleep in an unmade bed I don't have time to make my bed in the morning since hubby is still in it, except the weekends. I make it right before we go to bed. Drives him nuts and he tries to mess it up, but, I just can't stand to lay down on wrinkled sheets or covers.

I spent a while thinking of my ten, and when I was done and had posted them, I thought it was a bit of a cathardic experience, especially since I am usually a very, very private and shy person But I love you guys, and trust you, so I have no problem opening up and sharing with you all.
