You just want to wash me to the drain...but you can't make me go away.

700 POSTIES!!!

In the tradition of landmark posts a la 500, 600, I am going to present you with some fun facts in a fun way rather than just blather at your eyeballs per usual. First, I'm going to copycat some thingamabob (I refuse to call it a 'meme') that Bizzle is currently doing. And secondly, I'm going to jump on board the whatchamacallit that Donny is currently entertaining himself with. I like those kids so what's good enough for filling their time is good enough for filling mine.

Happy 700 Posts, Cleveland "A". You're just delicious.

PART 1: Stolen from Phee-Bizzle.

One: Ten things you want to say to ten different people right now.

-I wish I had even a fraction of your guts. Whenever you tell me you're nervous about something, it shocks the Hell out of me. In my mind, you are totally fearless, which I think is totally awesome.

-Becoming a mother is the best thing that ever happened to you. I've always been crazy about you as a person but when I look at you now, you're just so damn beautiful. Inside and out. You've come a long way, baby.

-The negative way you treated me pushed me...not to be a better person because I was just fine. And not to prove you wrong because I don't have to prove anything to anyone. But it pushed me...and now, I have a GREAT life. What the fuck have you got?

-All of my most ridiculous memories took place with you. I don't think we're going to be making any more memories like that. Kind of makes me wish the last "story worthy" thing we did together didn't take place at a Taco Bell.

-I'm probably not as sad as I should be that I don't really know who you are anymore. I'd rather fondly remember who you used to be.

-I'm really, really proud of you. You've grown leaps and bounds from the person you were 10 years ago. Not that that person was bad, by any means. You're just pretty damn amazing now. I can't tell you how much it means to me that you're still in my life after all these years and our ups and downs. My days just aren't the same when you're not around. You're one of my best friends.

-I could not function without you. You are the love of my life.

-The two of you make me feel like I'm worthless. And I refuse to let ANYONE make me feel that way. So where do we go from here?

-You're going to get through it. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, but the tunnel might be 1,000 miles long and filled with snakes. Regardless, I know you will get through it and you will manage to come out relatively unharmed on the other side. I'm happy to go through it with you...but you have to deal with the snakes.

-You're a monster and most of the people who know you agree.  The rest of them will figure it out. Eventually, you will be left with nothing but regrets. In the words of Phil Collins, a very wise man, "If you told me you were drowning, I would not lend a hand".

Two: Nine things about yourself.

-I have always been told that I am my mother's daughter. I don't doubt this in the least. We're both totally bananas, laugh at our own jokes, like the same music. and movies. But after flipping over a relatively important document to draw a diagram to illustrate a point, I was told I was my father's daughter. It was the first time.

-If I'm crying, and someone else starts crying, I stop crying.

-I'm not a lazy person, per se, but my favorite days are the ones where you stay in your pajamas, eating junk, watching movies, reading magazines. Lazy days. So many of my favorite days involved Becky, romantic-comedies and Chinese food, or Phoebe, bad movies, brownies and mac-n-cheese. Simple. Perfect. Honestly...I'm easy to please.

-I can day-dream like nobody's business. I have about 1,000,000 different lives.

-I try to be as honest as I can with people. I don't believe that holding things back or sugar-coating things, especially when asked directly, helps anyone. HOWEVER, I am not blunt. I believe there is a huge difference between being honest and being blunt. I don't think blunt people care about who they hurt with their words. I still try to protect people's feelings...because I know I can take things very personally at times. You can be honest. You don't need to be an asshole.

-I'm trying to be less of an asshole.

-I hate the word 'asshole'. Not as much as I hate 'butthole' though.

-I really and truly have very little regrets about my life and how I've lived it. Sure, there are things I wish I'd never done or people I wish I'd never wasted my time with, and so on. But overall, every experience I've had has made my life what it is in one way or another. And right now, I truly love my life. There's nothing more I could ask for.

-It's been incredibly difficult to just talk about myself.

Three: Eight ways to win your heart.

-Love me for me, quirks and all. Don't expect me to change and don't ask me to. Treat me how you expect/want to be treated.

-Trust me and be trust worthy. Simple as that.

-Little things go a long laying out my pre-natal vitamins and a banana for the morning or texting me to let me know it's icy out because you know I'm clumsy or bringing me lunch to work because I forgot me and leaving a sweet note in the bag. The sweet, little gestures mean more to me than any expensive gift.

-Be yourself. It's your weird little quirks and silliness, the stuff that sets you apart, that make me swoon.

-Love my friends like I love them. Take them into your life. Make them your friends. Because if I was forced to choose...

-Be supportive and encouraging. A pat on the back or "way to go" or an offer of help from you means more than from anyone else in the world.

-It may sounds dumb, silly, pathetic, juvenile...but a random snuggle, a hug, a smooch, a head/back rub, hand holding, pulling you close at night...aces. All of it.

-Accept that I'm a chick and will do chick things like get moody or emo. Cutting some clack from time to time is always appreciated.

Four: Seven things that cross your mind a lot.

- "We're sooooo close to being in good financial shape. It's going to feel so good to have a surplus of money every week. What a weight that'll be off my mind."

- "If I never saw you again, I wouldn't miss you. I wonder if that's bad."

- "I can't wait to find out if you're a boy or a girl."


- "If I go to bed this early, will that be pathetic?"

- "Life is good."

- "Gross."

Five: Six things you wish you’d never done.

-Various tattoos and facial piercings automatically come to mind.

-Dated not 1 but 2 raging alcoholics who treated me like garbage while I wasted my youth keeping them alive.

-Eloped when I was just a young idiot.

-Let you make me feel bad in order to feel better about yourself.

-Put myself in some of the bad positions I put myself in.

-Erased the photos of the damage you caused

Six: Five people who mean a lot (in no order whatsoever)

1. Todd
2. Tessa
3. Carol
4. Becky
5. The monster

Seven: Four turn-offs.

-Frat-boy syndrome...where pounding beers is SO AWESOME.
-Excessive cussing for no reason.
-Phonies a.k.a. no original personality.
-Know-It-Alls...even if they DO know it all.

Eight: Three turn-ons.

-A genuine, happy smile and rad sense of humor.
-Something that sets you apart from the pack.
-A positive attitude without being too hippie-ish.

Nine: Two images that describe your life right now, and why.

Why? Because NOTHING means more to me right now than these things:

Ten: One confession.

-This was exhausting. I think Donny's project might have to be post 701. My brain aches.
