I got double tagged to do this 25 Random Things meme on Facebook by both Cari and Marlys.
So here it goes:
1. I usually ignore most memes, chain letters, chain e-mails and the like unless I really like the person who sent it and/or I'm in the right mood.
2. I have a weird relationship with rules: I follow some with an obsessiveness and others I pretend don't apply to me (don't even think of changing the rules of Farkel or turning without using your blinker around me).
3. I started playing the guitar five years ago because everyone else in the family had musical instruments. I never intended to be in a band or write original music. I just wanted to learn to play Joni Mitchell's Big Yellow Taxi, so I could sing along.
4. I wear all black to work every day because I'm too lazy to figure out outfits that go together.
5. Two winters ago I had six black turtleneck sweaters that were exactly the same and I wore them every day to work for three months. It was awesome.
6. I love the scarf, purse and wallet I got for Christmas this year, but not as much as the Gibson Flying V Bill gave me.
7. The last New Years Eve show my band played, I screwed up the count down to midnight simply because I counted wrong ... outloud ... into the microphone.
8. I love to make fun of myself. But am trying to do it less, because it hurts my self-esteem.
9. I will pretty much do anything to make other people laugh. This gets me into trouble.
10. I didn't drink any alcohol for over four years.
11. I started again when my dad got sick.
12. I miss my dad so much, but I love having my mom with me. I feel selfish about that.
13. I wish my mom would live with us forever.
14. I've become obsessed with what my family eats and I bug them about it relentlessly.
15. If I wasn't me, I'd probably think I was annoying and talk about myself behind my back (especially when I'm hounding my family about food.)
16. I get crushes on things and people and will cyberstalk the object of my crush.
17. I'm obsessive about my skin and spend a lot of time and money trying to save it.
18. My life is very stressful right now and sometimes I just want to cry over it, but I don't.
19. Playing music with Laurena, Kelley and Scott is the best stress reliever there is.
20. I love my bandmates like they were family and hope we stay together forever.
21. Having my daughter was the one the two best decisions decisions I ever made.
22. Marrying Bill was the other.
23. I'm jealous of how kind and lovable Bill is.
24. I know that I don't deserve him.
25. I love my family more than I can ever show.
