A few lists

July 7th, 2007

It seems everyone is doing lists on their blogs lately. (It’s a good think nobody tried to peer pressure me in high school or I would have been screwed.)

So here is a little of me, in list form.
1. I was born in MIlwaukee
2. I moved to Green Bay with 3 weeks left of 8th grade.
3. It was tramatic.
4. I met a kid named Josh.
5. He loaned me a pen.
6. He was the only other person from my high school who went to Bethel.
7. He and Kevin were roommates freshman year.
8. I married Kevin.
9. I lived in Green Bay.
10. This does not make me a Packer fan.
11. It doesn’t even make me a football fan.
12. Although I enjoyed the day off of school when they won the Superbowl.
13. I like hockey.
14. Specifically the Detroit Redwings.
15. Kevin is from Detroit.
16. He likes hockey as much as I do.

22. I can count to 20 and say about 10 words in Somali.

33. It’s supposed to say Speak and Mazie.
34. I train dogs part time so it was cool to meet Ceasar.
35. He’s really short.
36. If I hadn’t married Kevin I’d probably be a crazy dog lady.
37. If I had my way, I’d have at least 5 dogs.
38. I’m lucky I have 2.
39.I’m re-reading all 6 Harry Potter books before #7 gets delivered to my house.

    I was just today considering re-reading book five before seeing the movie this month. But then I decided to save some time and just read the Wikipedia synopsis. True, most of the detail is gone, but I saved hours of time! And… enjoyment. Hmm.

    I totally don’t remember #5. What an interesting memory! I’m honored to be in your list.

    I agree with #11.
    I remember #12 quite clearly.

    I have been re-reading Harry Potter. I am currently on Book 5 (which I have not remembered most of – I think I only read it once). I will finish it before the movie and hopefully finish 6 by the time Tim finishes 7. We have 7 reserved at the Borders Tim worked at in Bozeman.

    You’ve met Ceasar Millan? He is totally my hero.
