It’s All About Me

It’s All About Me

by Gina Valley

It’s my birthday.

That tends to happen every year around this time.

I was thinking, since I’ve enjoyed getting to know so many of you, that, perhaps, you might enjoy getting to know a little bit more about me (if not, this won’t be your favorite post).

So, here, in no particular order, in honor of my birthday, are 38 facts about me:

  • Humor Funny Humorous Family Life Love Laugh Laughter Parenting Mom Moms Dad Dads Parenting Child Kid Kids Children Son Sons Daughter Daughters Brother Brothers Sister Sisters Grandparent Grandma Grandpa Grandparents Grandfather Grandmother Parenting Gina Valley Totally It’s All About Me BirthdayI can talk to anyone. Anyone. I once talked to someone who’d called the wrong number for 45 minutes (I might have done that more than once, but I won’t admit it).
  • I’m a major shoe addict, especially high heels.  But, no wedges. Wedges are the devil!
  • My handwriting is worse than terrible.
  • I can’t comprehend why NBA players miss so many free-throw shots.  What is up with that?!?!
  • I hate the taste of bacon, but I love the way it smells while it’s cooking.
  • I never wear shoes in my house. I slip them off at church to. I think that’s ‘cause of the whole burning bush thing.
  • When I’m driving alone I blast hard rock and push the speed limit.
  • Humor Funny Humorous Family Life Love Laugh Laughter Parenting Mom Moms Dad Dads Parenting Child Kid Kids Children Son Sons Daughter Daughters Brother Brothers Sister Sisters Grandparent Grandma Grandpa Grandparents Grandfather Grandmother Parenting Gina Valley Totally It’s All About Me BirthdayWhen I was a kid I learned how to play viola, saxophone, and piano (but not all at the same time).
  • I hate green tea, but I drink it every day ‘cause it’s supposed to be good for me.
  • I’ve marched in the Rose Parade twice
  • I know nearly every line in every episode of Friends by heart.  I’m not sure if that’s a good or bad thing.
  • Chocolate chip ice cream with those little flakes of chocolate & chocolate ice cream are tied for my favorite ice cream flavor.
  • I rarely eat chips, but when I do I use chopsticks.  And my left hand. (I eat cheese puffs with a fork) (I hate getting that orange goo on my hands) (Isn’t there a word for that orange goo?).
  • I don’t need a drop cloth when I paint (Sometimes I could use one when I eat, though).
  • I’d really like to drive a tank.  And a steamroller.  And a Zamboni. But, not at the same time.
  • My English is good.  My Spanish is passable.  My sarcasm is flawless.
  • I have never been able to do a decent cart-wheel
  • I love to throw surprise parties for others.  I hate when they’re thrown for me.
  • Once at a meeting, when the rude guy next to me wasn’t looking, I grabbed the mini-cookies he had next to his coffee & popped them in my mouth (rude people shouldn’t get cookies).
  • If I don’t floss before bed I always dream that my teeth all fall out. Always.
  • Humor Funny Humorous Family Life Love Laugh Laughter Parenting Mom Moms Dad Dads Parenting Child Kid Kids Children Son Sons Daughter Daughters Brother Brothers Sister Sisters Grandparent Grandma Grandpa Grandparents Grandfather Grandmother Parenting Gina Valley Totally It’s All About Me BirthdayWhen my family drives thru a tunnel we always hold our breath & call out a fruit when we come out. I always say “Kumquat.”
  • I painted our bar b q table pink.  It took 4 coats.  It looks awesome!
  • My sisters & my mom are all nearly 6 feet tall or taller.  I’m the runt at 5’ 6”
  • I love to wear long dangly earrings, but can’t wear most necklaces because they bug my hyper-ticklish neck.
  • When I was a kid I played on softball and basketball teams.
  • My favorite Bible verse is Psalms 120:1 “I call on the Lord in my distress and he answers me” (I make that call a lot!).
  • I always park on the same aisle in the Costco parking lot. (If I don’t, when I come out, I always think, for just a moment, that someone stole my car).
  • My favorite movie is the original Das Boot with subtitles.
  • Skydiving makes no sense to me.  Why jump out of a perfectly good airplane?
  • Airliners scare me.  I don’t think they can glide.
  • I love silk jammies, but hate satin.
  • I have a degree in applied mathematics.
  • Humor Funny Humorous Family Life Love Laugh Laughter Parenting Mom Moms Dad Dads Parenting Child Kid Kids Children Son Sons Daughter Daughters Brother Brothers Sister Sisters Grandparent Grandma Grandpa Grandparents Grandfather Grandmother Parenting Gina Valley Totally It’s All About Me BirthdayI love peppermint gum.  I hate spearmint gum.  And, it has to be bubble-blowable.
  • It grosses me out to have cake and ice cream on the same plate. Can’t have crumbs on my ice cream.
  • I can’t sleep at night if any of my children are not home.  By the time they get home from summer camp, I’m nearly comatose.
  • If I don’t have my contacts in, or my glasses on, I bump into more stuff. A lot more.
  • Monkeys and clowns freak me out. <shudder>  I’m not a big fan of spiders, either.
  • The beach is my most favorite place.

Remember, since it’s my birthday, cake has no calories today, so have at it.

Just be sure to use a separate plate for the ice cream.

Laugh Out Loud!

What are some details about you?  Do you use chop sticks to eat chips, too?  Shoot me a comment.  You’re already here anyway, and I’m looking forward to hearing all about it.
