Army of Mom

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


More Random Things

7. My bedroom in high school had black walls. I hated them, but my mom loved them. All my friends thought it was cool. I wanted something pretty like pink or lavender.
8. I don't like video games very much because my husband and my kids love to play them all the time and it gets on my nerves.
9. We often find new restaurants because we have a coupon for them.
10. If I had three days off (without anyone around) I would clean the house from top to bottom.
11. My most recent 10 YouTube favorites: Stevie Wonder - Sir Duke; Five for Fighting - World; Foo Fighters - Best of You; Cha Cha Slide; Puddle of Mudd - Psycho; Eminem - Ass Like That; Vallejo - Just Another Day; Hole - Doll Parts; Slipknot - Duality; Limp Bizkit - Break Stuff.
12. I've been a sports nut since I was a kid. I would go to ball games with my dad when I was a little girl.
13. I still have a great throwing arm.
14. When I was in college, I fell asleep during a Whitesnake concert drum solo.
15. I'm still a little mad at Army of Dad for going to see Matchbox 20 without me before we were even married (like 12 years ago).
16. I converted to Catholicism for Army of Dad.
17. I love Facebook except that the damn site locks up my computer sometimes.
18. I've thought Bono's voice is one of the sexiest voices I've ever heard since I was about 14 years old.
19. Watching Fergie in My Humps inspires me to work out. I need this on my walkman for working out.

21. I hate to do things if I'm not good at them.
22. I have The Shack, Twilight, Inkheart and about three dozen other books all in my queue to read, but I can't seem to get through all the Deborah Crombie books first and I want to read them all. Its like an addiction.
23. I don't particularly like substitute teaching because I hate being cooped up all day in one building.
24. I could sleep 10 hours a day if I didn't have so much to do.
25. I write everything - including letters - in AP style.

29. I think the MLB should have a salary cap.
30. Baseball has always been my favorite sport, but the steroid issues that can't seem to go away have made the sport lose favor in my eyes.
31. It sucks to be a Rangers fan. It sucks even more to be married to a Twins fan who can be a total ass about his team. (I still love you babe.)
32. Men seem to be shocked that I can carry on intelligent sports conversations.
33. They seem to be even more shocked when I can talk about tilt wall concrete construction methods, FDR (not the president but full-depth recycling) and the finer points of Rene Echeverria's work on The 4400 and Star Trek.
34. I'm a Romosexual. Although, he ticked me off a bit when he didn't seem to care that the Cowboys sucked ass.

37. I hope to lose weight and have someone write an Army of Mom-licious song like Fergie's.
38. Astromerias are my favorite flower these days.
