So I have been tagged by my friend Kaela- this is my first time being tagged - so this is very exciting! I'm supposed to tell 7 Random Things about Me - but I can't stop at 7. So I'll go on until I run out of things. (dont feel obligated to read them all. No, on second thought, do feel obligated - READ THEM ALL DANG IT!!!)

1. I have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and the medicine I have to take for it makes me sick! Bah!
2. I love love love MLB. I love watching it more than any other professional sport on TV.
3. But I LOVE going to college football games. That is my favorite sport to watch in person.
4. I know way more about sports than my husband.
5. I wish I would have done cooler things and visited cool places before I got married
6. I wish I would have been better with my money before I got married and would have built up a good savings.
7. I tend to think people are getting increasingly creepy as the years roll by.
8. And I think that Halloween just gives the creeps the chance to dress up like the true freaks they are! ha. so as fun as halloween is, it scares me.
9. Speaking of scared- I have become theeeee biggest scaredy cat ever since I've been married. I have a hard time falling asleep at night and multiple times a month I will sit up on my couch the majority (or all) of the night and just read blogs and watch tv so that I don't have to sleep.
And wouldnt ya know- tonight is a perfect example - Here I am at 3:51 am, not asleep. duh.
10. One of my companions and I got the first stages of frost bite on our feet on the mission (where your feet go all white and numb and hard) and now my feet get cold SOOOOO fast and are most always cold. When before my mission I would wear flip flops all winter. grr.
11. I stick my cold feet on Brad's legs at night to get them warm and he hates it! "....but babe..you are soo warm, and my feet are sooo cold!!!"
12. I LOVE people watching. People are SO Hilarious!!!!!
13. I RARELY dare stand up for myself. I don't often speak my mind to people - I'm a pansy.
14. I don't like onions, but I LOVE Red Robins Onion Rings, and things like the Bloomin Onion at Outback, Onion Strings at Famous Dave's , etc. (When I eat onion rings I pull out the onion and eat the crust)
15. I suck at my calling. I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO FOR ENRICHMENT!!! (Im the 2nd counselor in the RS)
16. If I'm having a hard time falling asleep at night and it's NOT because I'm scared, it's because I'm worrying about my brothers.
17. One of my Biggest pet peeves is hearing people chew. Ick- I hate it!!! And someone I sit by at work chews on ice WITH THEIR MOUTH OPEN every day and it drives me craaaaazay!!
18. But of course I'd never say anything like DIDNT YOUR MOTHER TEACH YOU TO CHEW WITH YOUR MOUTH CLOSED! cuz i'm a pansy, and frankly that's just mean. So my poor husband always gets the wrath of me, cuz his jaw somehow clicks when he eats- and I dare say something to him - and so I'm always staring him down and saying...Honestly, stop clicking. (He knows that I'm just insane and that I know he can't help it, so he doesn't pay attention)
19. I'm such a pansy. I always have been. I don't dare doing anything I want to because Im afraid of A. looking stupid or failing (or both!!!) or B. Getting hurt. i.e. I never dared try out for plays or musicals like I wanted or class president like I wanted and I don't dare go sledding, skiing, motorcycle riding, 4 wheeling (on any trail to steep or crazy)...things like that. I don't want to break my neck!!
20. If I call Brad and he doesn't answer, I immediately assume he's dead in a car wreck and I panic and almost puke. I worry about him soooooooooooooooooooo much.
21. I for some reason always get lost in my thoughts and imagine that Brad does get killed in a car wreck, and I have to try to go on without him...sometimes I'm strong and brave and keep my head held high and sometimes I'm such a mess in my daydream that I go insane. I don't know why I do this!! I just end up bawling and getting a cry headache- and it's just not good.
22. Sometimes I picture that I've died and then I picture Brad dating and getting remarried and it makes me so mad!!! Don't you dare love someone else! But at the same time, I want him to be happy. So I have just decided not to die, so that I don't have to see him love someone else.
23. Along the same lines, I sometimes plan my own funeral - I want really pretty flowers, not some random bouquets- but something thougtful, simple and beautiful. And I want really pretty music- lots of it. Nothing too depressing, just beautiful songs.
24. I'm wierd.
25. I've learned how to cross stitch, sew, quilt, and cook since I've been married and I LOVE it! And I never thought I'd even learn, let alone love it.
26. I love Texas Roadhouse, Village Baker, Red Lobster and Magelbys Fresh and PF Changs.
27. I hate Macaroni Grill, McGrath's Fish House, and the regular Magelbys.
28. I make fun of people too much.
29. Since April of 06 I've had 8 jobs.
30. Why did I admit that?!!
31. I got a speeding ticket in July of 01 and didn't pay it until September 04. I had a warrant out for my arrest, and when I went to the courthouse, or wherever it was I went, to find out how much I owed.... the cops immediately came to the desk where I was and said I had to pay it off right then, or go to jail. YOINKS!
32. I am learning sign language- and i LOVE IT!!
33. I got to "interpret" 2 songs on Sunday for Curry and Melissa's kids that are deaf, during their primary program. It was so fun!!
34. 2 months after Brad and I got married I was having really really bad migraines and would wake up in the night and my body would be completely numb. And then one morning we got up at like 8 (we were in St George at his grandparents for Thanksgiving) and my head was killing me and I started throwing up and couldn't stop and I went delirious and don't remember the next 13 hrs of the day, even though I was awake for most of those hours. I apparently wouldn't relax and stay on the couch and wouldn't stop throwing up and was asking where Brad was and he was right by me and so Brad and his dad and grandma took me to the ER and they had to put me in a wheelchair cuz I couldn't walk and I was saying wierd things and creeping Brad out and so they rushed me right back. I was mean to the nurses and had to have all kinds of tests done and be sedated. They never found anything- and just said I went crazy because I couldn't handle the pain anymore. BIZARRE HUH!?!?!?!?!??!! I was sick for days after and had a hard time going back to work cuz I couldn't work as fast after that for a few months.
35. I'm TERRRRRRIFIED of something like that happening again.
36. I love love love to doodle and write my name all over the place.
37. When I was little I wrote my name on our piano, in the window well in my bedroom, on the carpet with lipstick...everywhere.
38. I used to give plasma twice a week for a little extra money.
39. If I could know what I know now and had the chance to go back in time (like to Jr High/High School) and redo things, I would.
40. I love Guitar Hero. I don't play it that often anymore- and I wish I had people to play it with more often.
41. I would rather unload the dishwasher than load it. Brad would rather load it than unload it.
42. I scrub off everything before I put it in the dishwasher. It's probably a waste of time, but I do it anyway.
43. I wish I had a sewing room. I have plans to take over our spare bedroom for that soon, that will have to do for now.
44. I like having my hair blonde better than all one dark color.
45. But my hair is SO dead being all bleached like it is now. *sigh*
46. I get sick to my stomach from going in to Bath and Body Works.
47. If I smell too many candles I get sick to my stomach. Brad is a smell-aholic and could smell candles/lotions/soaps/deodarants all day, and tries to get me to do the same. Doesn't work out too well.
48. I wish I could play the guitar better.
49. I wish I had more opportunities to sing - I'm getting really rusty.
50. I wish I had a piano.
51. I wish I had SPACE for a piano.
52. I taught myself how to play the piano. So I'm not very good.
53. I miss my friends from Ricks that I haven't seen in soo long.
54. I own one brown item of clothing.
55. I haven't owned brown shoes in YEARS!
56. I look better in brown than in black- but all I wear is black.
57. I wish I could be a writer for the show MXC- It's hilarious. Sometimes too crude. But hilarious.
58. I cry easily.
59. My home teacher asked me if I was pregnant a couple of months ago.
60. I almost kicked him in the teeth.
61. I am not pregnant.
62. I'm sorry this list has gotten so long.
63. I could keep going.
64. But I won't.
65. Love ya!!!
66. I think everyone who reads this blog has probably already been tagged- but if you havent- consider yourself tagged. Now let's hear some random things about you.
67. It is now 4:54 am. DUH!!! go to sleep fool!

So, I love you. I was starting to do that crazy laugh cry thing, but there are too many people around so I stopped myself. All I can say is I love you. There were so many things I didn't know, mostly cause we didn't speak for almost 3 years! SICK! However, I love you. I should do this tag before I leave for TX.

I can't agree with you more about numbers 21 and 22. Why do we do that to ourselves??? I remember talking to you about this all the time at work... and then I'd get all down and want to cry... Then I'd go to the breakroom and get a candybar. Problem solved.

Dido to the above comment, why is it that we always assume the worst has happened? Ugh, I get sick thinking about it. Andrea, I don't even know you that well, but I love reading about you and am loving "getting to know" you more and more ;) You are hilarious. And I have no idea how you stay up so LATE(!)

I'm so glad you didn't stick to seven. I am hating the seven I wrote. I was trying to come up with something original I hadn't already written in the 100 things about me post. Anyway... I LOVE YOU SO MUCH, Andrea. How I have become so blessed to have you as a friend, I don't know, but thanks for giving me 67 more reasons to love you!!
