    Default Saw this on another post and thought it might be fun...

    8 random facts about me

    1. I only eat round food in even numbers.

    2. I was a Cub Scout Leader for 13 years. (What can I say - I have three boys) :happy0158:

    3. I hate, hate, hate being called "Michelle". There is absolutely nothing wrong with that name - it is a very nice name - it just IS NOT my name.

    4. I count steps - I have 13 in my house, I know ecause I hve counted them several times a day - every day for the last 16 years.

    5. I was a florist for 10 years.

    6. All of my children were born on Tuesday. All three boys were born in the 1:00 hour, 4 days before a holiday (Valentine's Day, Halloween & Easter) my daughter was born on the holiday (Valentine's Day) in the 3:00 hour.

    7.My grandfather was at Alcatraz during the time of the escape. (He was a warden - not a prisioner!)

    8. I have been to 30 states and 3 countries (Germany, Austria & Mexico). Next month I will add Idaho and Oregon to my visited list.

    Be sure to add your random facts - you never know what we might learn about each other!

    OMG, I thought only I did that, lol.

    Okay here are my random facts:

    1. I TOO am a step counter, lol. The steps in my house are in groups numbered 5 - landing - 6 - landing - 3 if I am going downstairs. It drives my DH nuts because I run downstairs at night in the pitch black (he's afraid I'm going to fall).

    2. My second son's name, Grant, was picked because it DID NOT end in an N. (Almost all of his cousins have names that end in N: Adin, Evan, Cayden, Madison, Gavin)

    3. I was valedictorian of my HS class (it's not that big of an accomplishment - hold your applause - there were only about 28 people in my graduating class).

    4. I met my DH in highschool. He was two classes below me. We dated for 5 years (while I finished college) before we married.

    5. My oldest son (who is 7) knows more about bugs than anyone I have met. He recently found and Identified an Ichneumon wasp on the tree in front of our house.

    6. I have 3 siblings. My brothers are 7 and 9 years older than me and my sister is 11 years older than me.

    7. I have windchimes hanging in nearly every window in my house.

    8. As a kid I used to get stung every summer due to my aversion to wearing shoes and the abundant amount of clover growing around my parent's house.

    1. On the way to the hospital to give birth to my 2nd daughter, my DH and I saw a shooting star.

    2. My maiden name is Hightower and I hated it when people would ask me if I was related to the guy on Police Academy....um, that was a movie and the guy was black...

    3. My favorite place to eat is the Olive Garden for pasta.

    4. DH most hated place to eat is...Olive Garden.

    5. I eat a salad from Pluto's almost everyday for lunch!

    6. It bothers me that most men LOVE Asian women...is it because they're small? If it is, then that really bothers me cause then they look like children.

    7. One of my biggest fears is having a daughter that's 12 but looks like she's 18. Oh, wait...I'm shaking in my boots right now!

    8. I LOVE MEN IN KILTS!!!! but I'm sure you already knew that. :)

    6. I was a contestant on Soap Talk during one of their game segments. I won.

    7. I have more confidence in myself and my body then when I was 20 and had a better body. I didn't enjoy my body then, I do now.

    This is always fun, you learn such neat things about people! I did a "100 things" on my website...I'll try to think of different random things here...

    1. Fluorescent lighting gives me headaches (as a kid, I used to hate Kmart because of this).
    2. I'm afraid of escalators; whenever possible, I'll take the stairs.
    3. I don't really like cake, and have never liked frosting.
    4. I do, however, LOVE brownies, and eating the right one - still warm from the oven, can be so good it's almost sexual.
    5. I love the smell of burning leaves on the crisp fall air.
    6. Once, when I was drunk while camping, I discovered a new way to pee without taking off my jeans.
    7. As a kid, I had nightmares that I got locked in the mall, and headless mannequins would come to life and stalk me.
    8. My husband is convinced if we conceive again, it will be red-headed twin boys, whom he will insist on naming Fred & George.
    9. I just turned 30 and decided that when I turn 40 - I'm buying myself a black jeep, and when I turn 80 - I'm wearing a mumu and going to Baker's Square to try to eat a slice of every kind of pie they have.
    10. I like to read my daughter the Charlie&Lola books using British accents.
