100 things about me (My attempt at self knowledge)

I saw a blog were a woman listed 100 things about her self... I don't believe I know a hundred things about my self but I'm going to try we'll see how close I get...
1. I'm tall-5'7 1/2", but let's call it 5'7", Jerry's not 5'11 so we have to pad his height where ever we can .
2. I need to get a hair do i can live with but right now the one I want costs $400, can you say not today?!?!
3. I don't take nearly the care I should with my hair i.e with myself - but I'm trying now and that's all I have to say about that .
4. Food is very important to me-the flavors, the textures, the colors, the combinations,the process of making it, the faces of my test subjects, sauces and batters and glazes and shapes and smells.
5. Love words. Learning how to use them effectively, need to go to school.
6. Have T.V and pay for cable when I spend way more time on the internet, go figure.
7. I have a thing for expensive anything, but I'm responsible so I don't indulge that thing often.
8. I have one child.
9. I am engaged.
10. I grew up in St. louis MO, in a neighborhood that has the same people in it when we lived there. No one has moved and the children still live with their parents -scary.
11. My childhood was very cool, (can YOU fit 13 kids on one 10-speed and a skateboard for downhill bobslead like olympics?)
12. When I was 10 I threw a boomerang a zillion and one times, that one time it finally came back and clocked me in the forehead, 8 stiches later I was trying again.
13. When I was 10 my dog ate my brothers arm and my dad got rid of him while I ws napping in his dog house trying to keep them from giving him away. He lived for a long time at a house in the city I found out way later.
14. I have no tollerence for stupid people or dogs.
15. I own a stupid dog now and it is driving me crazy.
16. I played JV basket ball and a year of varsity but I wasn't big enough or small enough to start.
17. I just wanted to play with the guys after practice anyway.
18. I don't cry often.
19. My fiance hates #18.
20. W have 2 cats: Tsunami and Butters (Mother and daughter...daughter is anti social -figures) . Tsunami is great with our baby so i have no complaints about her, except when Jerry's petting her and she looks at me like he's MY human (imagine cat tounge sticking out and blowing a rasberry). We also have before mentioned stupid dog Nyla the Destroyer. She's not really stupid, she just chews everything related to the baby or me if she's mad that we aren't paying enough attention to her.
21. My granny wants to give the baby a dog.
22. I make amazing soups of all kinds - tops are butternut squash (fall only) Chicken soups (dumplings as well) Beef stew, and pot pies.
23. I can put my tummy under my jean waist. Thank you holidays.

25. I'm addicted to girl stuff...But I don't buy it cause I'm responsible.
26. I want bluetooth stuff for my house phone.
27. I love dsl. I can surf and chat at the same time, but I'm biased I work for the phone company, and helped launch the product.
28. I suck at math-and consequently at money. Maybe they aren't related and I just suck at both independently.
29. I have no credit card debt left since. I settled all of my credit cards for 50%, busting my ass waiting tables. My credit still sucks but I'm trying to but a house anyway.
30. I used to work as a photographer in college for one of those party picture studios. yes I was a party pic chick. Every weekend I watched druck white college kids get plastered and throw them selves in front of my camera and ultimately destroy any hopes of having a career in politics. Espeically that one kid in the trough of beer.
