    21. I rocked a trifecta of nerdliness in 6th grade
    Haha- That was great, sad, but worded well.

    I’m left-handed as well. Great list!

    I liked how most of these were forming little sentences, haha cute. VERY cool that Lexington was the first + last residence. I’m definitely stealing this!

    I love the movie Shag too. Such a great movie. The first time I went to Myrtle Beach I kept looking for things from the movie.

    I love Target too! There’s just something so clean and organized about it…

    And I’m glad to know that you would tell me if there was crap in my teeth. I probably need more people in my life like that.

    Hee hee, I love your list of 100 things. The Trifecta of Nerdiness line made me chuckle aloud, and from the one time we met at Renegade, I’d never, ever guess you were shy. Yay! =)

  • Tiredbuthappy August 9, 2006, 12:19 pm

    6. Me neither! (I’m also a Decembrist).

    65. How, without more square footage?

    74-78: Me too.

    they’re in storage or being used in my parents house. I hope to buy a house that is larger than 300 square feet, but not anything too huge!

    What caused your Amblyopia? Curious because my daughter 2 yrs old has Amblyopia due to refractive error and currently wears glasses and patches.

    I don’t know if you check your comments, Andi, but the answer to 84 is:

    “One lump or two!!!!!”

    Rock on, Sister! 🙂

  • udandi July 26, 2007, 9:48 am

    I do Claire, I do!

    Thanks for dropping by!

    Loved the “100 things about me”. It’s strange, but my last was Lexington, Ky and unfortunately my first was Galion, Ohio, a neighbor of Lexington, Ohio.

    Laughing at your list here… only because I can totally relate to a LOT of it…

    Let’s see… painfully shy as a child, until I made a conscious decision the summer before freshman year of HS to come out of my shell. (No one believe me either, that I used to be shy.)

    Nerdliness went on for more than 6th grade… wore glasses beginning in 4th grade & wore braces beginning in 6th. The only thing missing was the Catholic school uniform.

    My sister wore a patch for lazy eye when she was in grade school…. hated every minute of it. To this day, if she drinks alcohol, her eye might get a little “lazy.”

    Oh well…. too many to list…

    PS…. “One lump or two?” 🙂

    Deana’s last blog post..I am so going to be GLOWing all my photos from now on…
