HOPESandDREAMS: 30 Things: gave me this idea.
1. I used to ride horses at least once every week. I miss it a lot and am really sad I couldn't continue. My favorite was jumping.
2. I have developed an intense love for hokey movies. My favorite by far is Dead Alive, a Peter Jackson zombie movie that is said to be the bloodiest movie every (judging by the number of gallons of fake blood they used). Most recently we watched Hercules And The Moon Men.
3. I love Baby Einstein. My favorite is Baby Shakespeare. Especially when I'm not sober.
4. I was an alcoholic. For about a year. I once told JP that I drink to feel normal.
5. I rarely drink anymore. Getting drunk isn't as fun as it was, and the health risks aren't worth it.
6. I love hoodies. They're comforting to me and I wear them year round, sometimes even when it's hot out.
7. JP's nickname for me is Snowflake. He says it's because I'm unique. I think it's because the day he decided that was my nickname I was running around the TJ Maxx parking lot trying to catch one on my tongue.
8. I can say really, really dumb things. Like, "how many beers are in a six pack?" or, at night, "is it, like, dark outside?".
9. Bo Burnam is amazing. My favorite song of his is Catholic Rap. "Dear God, dear Lord, dear vague muscular man with a beard or a sword. Dear good all seeing being, my way or the highway yahweh, the blue balled anti-masturbator, the great all-loving faggot hater."
10. I read Cosmo every month even though I find it sexist.
11. JP and I want to start a business sometime in the next 10 years. We want to call it the Handy Hippie. We'd go around installing solar panels and windmills and generally greening up businesses and homes.
12. I thought becoming a mother would profoundly change my personality. It didn't. I wish it had. I figured I would be more assertive and strong, but I'm only that way when it comes to Willow, and sometimes not as much as I should be.
13. Joss Whedon is my hero. Buffy is my favorite TV show. Firefly is a close second. Dr. Horrible was the first time I realized I actually like musicals as long as they're not Rodgers and Hammerstein. The only thing he's done that I don't like is the Avengers (and the Buffy movie, but he wasn't really involved so I don't count that).
14. I was profoundly fucked up when I was younger. Yesterday I went through some of my old binders from freshman year of college and in almost every margin I'm putting myself down or drawing skeletal figures. Or razor blades. It's so sad.
15. When I was a kid and we were in the car, I would say bye to every object I saw. "Bye tree, bye car, bye people. . "
16. So many bad things have happened to me that when I think or talk about them sometimes I forget one or two. "Oh, yeah! I forgot that happened too."
17. The last few years are the first time I actually remember being happy. Especially since Willow was born.
18. I have read the Lord of the Rings series 9 times in one summer.
19. I love vacuuming when there's tiny pieces of crunchy stuff on the floor. Doesn't everyone? But I hate dealing with vacuum cords.
20. This Christmas, our tree topper was Bizarro with his flag upside down. . . Oh, god. I'm a nerdy hipster!
