I stole this from someone. It was someone female, someone nice or else attractive, but I can't remember who it was. Sorry, sweetie!

Ten Things About You
1. okay, here I am! Isn't that surprise enough?
2. I read a lot. I was given acknowledgement for it as early as the second grade. Some other kids and a teacher helped me carry the 40 or so books I had read that semester to the auditorium so that I could be recognized. Big whoop. When it was all over, who do you think had to carry all those books back to the library? That's right, just me. All for no money and no gold medal. Sigh.
3. I hide my feelings. Is that anal retentive? But the books say anal retentive involves being that way because you're trying to please everyone. That hasn't applied to me for decades. I do like to avoid confrontations, but on the other hand I can blow up faster and bigger than makes any sense! So maybe I'm anal explosive?
Sounds like a monkey in the zoo, doesn't it?
4. I've been attracted to almost every woman I've ever known, at least at some point. But I'm still attracted to most of them, even now. I guess it's a grand delusion on my part.
5. I get more like my father as time goes by. He used to be able to yawn in the middle of an interesting TV program and walk right out on it. Now I can, too!
6. my grown nephew took my Dad's old red Craftsman tool boxes the other day, leaving me many of the tools that were in and taking the others. I don't mind. But it brought to my attention that in some sense I must still consider the tools my Dad's, because I'm hesitant to remove any of them from the garage myself! A tire pressure gauge that would have been handier in my car had remained in the garage all these 15 years! The other day I bought a new one at WalMart and threw the old one away, a task I found a little difficult even though it was old and unreliable. We are often attached to things that really don't seem like they'd be very sentimental items. But there's still plenty of his stuff in the garage or around the house, so don't cry about me!
7. I actually like Glucerna (the diabetic drink); I've gotten used to it! The chocolate flavor is best, but the vanilla is all right.
8. The best sugar-free item I've ever found is Jello sugar-free vanilla pudding! I eat it nearly every day.
9. I'm very poor this month
10. I want to buy a more expensive hat, but I'm too lazy to go shopping. Maybe I'll stumble across it someday when I'm running some other errand?

  2. LOL! I had to read that twice, because I thought you meant that you'd borrowed the lot from a female - I kept thinking - 'a man wrote this, or was it a lesbian it's a man!' Why does Ron think it was a female! LOL! Daft me!
