Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Stolen Blog Post

I'm guilty. I admit it. I stole this idea from Gadfly at Mental Floss. Five things not yet in/on my blog. Gees, I'm not sure if there is anything I haven't posted.

1. I played with Barbie dolls until I was 15.

2. I won the Art Award for my entire junior high when I was in the eighth grade.

3. I've had three c-sections.

4. My feet grew a half-size with every pregnancy. I wore a 5 1/2 in 1993. Now, I wear a 7.

5. I collect autographs. Mostly Major League Baseball players. But, I also collect sci-fi actors, too. I was on a streak (before I had children) of getting the rookie of the year players from both the NL and the AL for about three or four years straight. I got Kirby Puckett for Army of Dad the year before Puckett died.

Gees, now I'm on a role. I have so many more things I could say, too. Let's go on.

6. I plan to be Bettie Page for Halloween. *Don't you wish I'd trick or treat at your house? I may have a whip.*

7. Army of Dad's best friend brought us back a keffiyeh from Iraq on his last tour of duty.

8. I used to collect stamps, penguins and Precious Moments figurines.

9. I shattered my elbow doing a back handspring in the sixth-grade. I rebroke it making a play at the plate when I was 13. *got the bitch out, too*

10. I can never get a fire started in the fireplace.

Anyone else care to play? Give me 5 or 10 ... and let me know.

    Nope, will be an M&M or something harmless while trick or treating with the kids. Bettie Page is for later. *wink*
