I am going to start us on a month long GTKY journey. Hopefully, we will learn more about eachother and bring us closer as a board.

Todays GTKY is a little hard - but you can do it.

Post a picture of yourself - and tell us 10 things about you. Yes, 10 is a lot, but I have faith you can think of ten thing about yourself!!

I like tap dancing
I am a terrible gardener
I am still depressed about my mom and don't like talking to anyone about it
My mouth is on fire because I poured siracha all over my breakfast
I used to go to protests
I used to dye my hair crazy colors
I have a half sister that was given up for adoption that I would like to meet one day
I like to read cookbooks from the 40s/50s
I'm socially awkward
I like my handwriting

I will post a pic at some point. My computer is slow and photobucket tends to freeze my computer up.

So.. no recent pics of me on the computer. So I'll have to take one, upload it to the puter, upload it into photobucket, and then post a link here. That should take a month or so

Marie - what is a 350?
Jenifer - was never dating a white guy intentional or coincidental? And I totally understand the weight loss numbers. I give myself small goals, and then bigger goals too.

It wasn't intentional, just never happened.

A 350 is a big passenger van. I'd sell a kidney for one too. LOL

ohhh and just post an old pic.

I know you all have seen this one before but I can't find my camera and apparently I haven't uploaded pics of myself since last Christmas!

1. I bite my nails when I'm stressed (which is alot).
2. All through school I was constantly made fun of for my voice. I'm very softspoken. It's almost impossible for me to yell.
3. Because of the above mentioned teasing, I'm not a very talkative person when first meeting others.
4. My weekly guilty pleasure is watching Vampire Diaries on the CW....I cannot believe I just admitted that
5. My favorite Disney princess movie is Beauty and the Beast and I'd be shocked if there is someone else in the world more excited than me to buy the dvd when it comes out Oct 5th.
6. I'm afraid to drive over bridges, especially long ones that take longer than I can hold my breath to get across.
7. I grew up on a cattle farm and my first calf was named Belle, yes after Beauty and the Beast. My parents still own her but she's ancient.
8. I cried today because I couldn't open a jar of peaches!
9. I've never flown in a plane....and I find it funny that I felt the need to put 'in a plane'....as if I've flown in a box, or with wings.
10. I have to write with paper and pen first then type it. Absent-minded scribbling helps me think and I can't do that on a computer.

MamaJessie, thats how I like pics of me too. LOL

Cortney, you look like my aunt Lisa...don't worry, she is younger than me....so I am not saying you look like some old lady who lives with cats.

Laura, I have never had fresh mango. Do you just peel it and eat it?

That's my all time favorite movie. DH bought it for me for Christmas one year and now I need to buy the new one because my kids destroyed it. I've seen the musical too

This is me with my Aunt Elaine and my neice Taylor. I do not have a cowboy hat on....LOL...it was a ho down bbq my aunt had last summer.

Ten things about me:

1. I have had no relationship with my father since I was 13.
2. My mother passed away almost ten years ago at the age of 50. I miss her everyday.
3. I have a problem of being too nice/not being able to say no.
4. I am not street smart, or worldly in life knowledge.
5. If you make a joke about something drug related I probably won't get it. (dh says I grew up in Mayberry)
6. I have never smoked (anything) in my life.
7. I try too hard to be "June Cleaver". Even if it runs me ragged.
8. I love my new job ~ but miss being home all day. I really feel like that's where I belong.
9. If I were younger, I would have more children.
10. I have lost over 100 pounds.

Yay, for more B and the B fans! I wish there was a Disney store near us. Actually, it's probably better that there isn't knowing me!
