My 100th Post & 1st Blog Birthday

Technically this is post 109 but there are 9 previous posts that I'm not counting so it's the 100th Real Post! Also, a year ago tomorrow my first blog post went live so I'm also celebrating my one year blogiversary! I've decided to celebrate by sharing 100 random facts about myself (except I stopped at 40 because even I don't know that much about myself) interspersed with the some of the more awkward pictures of myself.

Me A Long Time Ago
At least I am Pretty sure it's me and not E2.

1. I am allergic to bananas. I've vomited and broken out in hives after eating them.
2. I like fried plantain. They don't give me hives
3. I got food poisoning from watermelon.
4. Food is my absolutely favorite thing in the world.
5. My best friend and I ate most of a whole one-pound box of sugar cubes once.
6. I am a germaphobe.
7. But I will totally eat food off the flood.
8. I’m never too full for ice cream.
9. I am a snob and prefer maple syrup to pancake syrup.
10. I love pancakes.

I made my The Lion King, Hyena Costume myself.
11. I love doughnuts.
12. I’ve loved pickles and olives since I was a child.
13. I used to drink the brine black olives come in.
14. I still do so to gross out the Hubs.
15. I love listening to metal (like 80s Metallica, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath) because it is so epic.
16. I love 80s pop/dance music.
17. The first concert I went to was a Marc Anthony concert. (I convinced my dad to take me because he hoped it would improve my Spanish.)
18. I really want to start a gold charm bracelet.
19. While my sliver charm bracelet languishes in jewelry box.
20. I made up my own imaginary country with a language, history, and everything in Junior High.

all about how to construct a language.
21. I took sailing lessons.
22. I miss Lake Michigan so much.
23. I am always too cold.
24. I would be so happy if it were 75 to 85 and slightly humid all the time.

26. I used to want to be a 1337 hax0r. Instead I became a lawyer.
27. I still wish I had tried harder to be an astronaut.
28. I am obsessed with chickens. When we travel some place with a lot of feral ones (like Hawaii or Key West) I take lots and lots of photos of them.
29. I have the best husband.
30. I have a diva cup. It is a life changer.

You didn't wear a pith helmet to your high school graduation party?
31. I hate it when I cut my fingernails too short.
32. I can’t stand long toenails so I cut them as short as possible.
33. I am so incredibly pedantic.
34. I think the law is like magic. You say some Harry Potter like Latin mumbo jumbo and abracadabra something about the world has changed.
35. I am continually amazed by how much my handwriting looks like E2’s.

I entered into a Beard Growing Contest in College.
Eyeliner is hard to get off when you smear it all over your face.

36. People have thought E2, E3, and I were triplets when we were young.
37. I am three years older than E2 and 5 1/2 years older than E3.
38. My wingspan, from fingertip to fingertip, is 6 feet.
39. I am 5’8” tall.
40. I wish I were shorter.
