    You know, I thought you were mostly alright but the not liking watermelon thing is giving me pause.


    Well. Alright then. More for me and you’re still A-OK in my book!

    I love it. Clearly you are a VERY COOL person. And, I think “prone to insomnia” and “blogging obsessed” MUST go hand-in-hand, don’t you?

    A person ‘reduced’ to a list of attributes. Don’t know if I’d be brave or honest enough to do that myself.
    Best wishes

    Thanks for letting me get to know you a bit better via this post πŸ™‚ We have a bit in common; I just wish being a size 8 was one of them!

    I’ve never voted, either. What’s up with that?

    Book addict, huh? Since we have so much time on our hands, we should start a mini-drinking, er, I mean book club. It would give me an excellent excuse to drive over there once a month for some drinking, damn, I mean non-children time.

    I’m with you on the watermelon…and about 15 other of your items I counted. I really wish I could like watermelons…I love the smell of them…but the texture just grosses me out.

    “high-school dropout” and “started college”…and an amazing writer! You go girl!

    I dropped out of college, had kids, divorced, went back, got married again, became a very passionate writing teacher *Woo Hoo* and had another child. *Whew* But I looooooove watermelon. With salt.

    And I love your blog.

    “Ambitious in ways that don’t matter” was the standout one for me. I can completely relate. If you ever figure out a way to be ambitious in the ways that do, will you let me know how you’ve done it?

    I didn’t hate you until “Size 8” πŸ˜‰
