I stole the 25 random things about me from Facebook - you have to admit its a good way of telling people about yourself:))

1. I have an awful memory and that is putting it mildly.

2. I have a "dressing room". It is a room dedicated to make-up, hair, and clothes...I love it.

3. I love to organize and be organized but rarely am. I will spend an entire day organizing and have it ruined by the weekend.

4. I love books. If I can't actually read a book then I will listen to one on CD. I always have two books going at once. ( Tell me your favorite book!!!)

5. I have a very addictive personality. Ex. I will eat one food morn, noon and night until I am just plain sick of it.

6. I love "making things". Jewelry, pottery, random craft things. I love having a project. I will have a hard time focusing on anything else (see #5). My man made the basement into a makeshift studio for me - I will tell you what he is doing with his half in another post - priceless!)

.7. I do not like my birthday or celebrating it. It just reminds me I am getting older. However..birthday wishes still warm my heart.

8. I have severe obsession/addiction to all things ETSY...and have plans on opening my own shop....well..when I have enough stuff made which at this rate will be like 10 years... (**slight exaggeration**)

9. I am scared to death of sna...I can't even write it!

10. I do not like answering the phone or opening my mail...which usually gets me into some pretty bad messes.

11. In High School I was on this "all-star" dance team and we were invited to be part of Big Bill's first inauguration. We opened the inauguration ceremonies. I like to say " I have performed for Bill Clinton". Hee - get it?!

12. I wish I had a better vocabulary.

13. I am scared to have kids. I can't carry one of my own so we have to do surrogacy ( when we are ready!)

14. I get up in the morning a hour to an hour 1/2 earlier then I have to ( meaning 4am ) to have quiet time to myself. If I don't - it really throws me off.

15. I'm not a very good sleeper - I average about 4 hours a night. Maybe it is because I go to sleep with headphones on - listening to my book on CD..hhmmm...

16. Humor is my armor against life.

17. I hate the sound of knuckles cracking.

18. I have the most amazing man in my life - however- he is my complete opposite. He is everything I never knew I was looking for. ( I have to think of a codename for him - ya know to protect the innocent)

19. I am a school social worker and work in a program for severely emotionally impaired high school boys..sound fun? Whats fun is the padded room that we have for them...not kidding:)

20. I was the high school prom queen.. memories......however, I did attend a small high school but whatev's!

21. I am obsessed with Clinton and Stacy from TLC's "What Not to Wear". I just want to go shopping with them so badly...but no one answers my e-mails.

22. I am known to have "bad luck". On any given day I will have a story about a crazy thing that happened to me. Try me...

23. I love to grocery shop( well shopping in general..) and obsessively look at cookbooks.

24. My dreams in life are to have a job that I can control my hours and what days I work , take a long vacation in Europe and pay off my debt.

25. My heart has been broken for about 3 years now. That is when I finally came to terms that I can no longer wear high heels. *sigh* Reason why...will save for another post !!!

The Lady Jane..


  1. Need to hear about #25! :(

    And A Tale of Two Cities is my favorite book ever. Or Of Mice and Men. Or Sense and Sensibility. Or The Stand. Mmm books are good :) What's your favorite?

  2. OMG...#5 is totally me! It's like when you love a song and listen until you hate it!! I always abuse the music! x

  3. "I love to organize and be organized but rarely am. I will spend an entire day organizing and have it ruined by the weekend." Yup, that describes me PERFECTLY! I always have such good intentions and it NEVER turns out as I planned.

    Can't wait to hear about what the other half of the basement is being used for!!

    As for my favourite book...Catcher in the Rye and To Kill A Mockingbird. Both of which I have read many, many times and yet I can never get bored of them!

  4. I have never been organized and accepted the fact that I probably never will be.

    I quit aging a few years ago. I will forever be 25 and honestly forget my real age sometimes because 25 has become the standard answer, monetary donations are still accepted though. =)

  5. I am so glad that everone else has an organization issue too!!
    My fav books - I love anything by Jane Austen! I love the Kay Scarpetta series by Patricia Cornwell. I have been pretty addicted to Phillipa Gregory lately ( author of the The Other Boelyn Girl..she has penned a lot of books) I love books that are historical like that but fictionesque too. And hands down love Bridget Jones Diary - I think every girl identifies with that. I love the classics too. Poodlegoose - to Kill a MockingBird is at the top of my list. See if I get going on books - I can't stop!!
    I think I will put a bookshelf on my to go look at it!

    The Lady Jane

  6. You can't wear high heels?? How come?

    I actually can't right now for the time being (I have a post somewhere on my blog about that ... I think it January). I injured my foot so high heels are on the back burner for the time being. Tragic, isn't it!?
