10 Things You Might Not Know... about sister sheri

Beth Moore asked this question on her blog last week...
What are 10 things - right off the top of your head - that we would only know about you if we knew you really well? 10 random things ranging anywhere on your personal map that make you a tad distinctive? Or just plain weird? Think quickly. Don't go for deep. Go for quirky. Don't try to put them in any kind of order and don't make them long. Just start typing.
Here's my 10...

1. I can't wait for Monday mornings because killersudoku.com posts a new mind-bending puzzle for the week.

2. I have to eat breakfast and drink coffee first thing in the morning.  No skipping breakfast for me.

3. I have become obsessed lately with all things pink and green.

4. I like to do all my laundry on Saturday.  It doesn't mean it is all folded and put away on that day.

5. All the tests say I am extroverted... but my preference is to spend most of my time alone.

6. I use mechanical pencils.  Size .7mm only.

7. I don't keep my car very clean.

8. I find it difficult to not smile at everyone.

9. Most nights, I fall asleep to podcasts.

10. I love my Xyron 150. (Makes stickers out of anything with a width of less than 1.5".)  I'm thinking maybe I "need" the one that makes 5" stickers!

So, tell me something I don't already know... about you!

This is the first time i've heard of the Xyron. Cool.

Yolanda said...

Loved learning things about you, and I've never heard of Xyron either. Care to explain? :-)

Been thinking I should go to bed at night listening to something on my i-pod. May need to give that a whirl soon.

Lovingly,
Yolanda

Best list yet!
I think my sister has a Xyron, or something akin to it, she raves about it. I always eat breakfast, right now it is cottage cheese and strawberries, and my car is always dirty, but we clean it while we're on vacation. I was born in Tennessee but have lived my whole life in Florida and 6 generations before me were from FL....

1. my dad used to call me Annie Rooney. my mother-in-law's dad used to call HER Annie Rooney.
2. i'm so shy i won't even say hello to the guard at my office building.
3. my name was almost Constance
4. i was a baton twirler
5. growing up we had a dog named Tarzan
6. my first job was for GMAC, stapling payment coupon books all day long. GMAC trained me to be a programmer and i've been a computer programmer for almost 25 years.
7. my mom always cut my hair in a pixie. to this day i can't stand the feel of my hair on my neck.
8. i was the only one in my family who could ice skate.
9. my favorite saying is "who wouldn't want to be us?"
10. when i was 15, i saw 'A Thief In The Night' and made an appointment with my minister (a non-evangelical church that didn't preach salvation) to ask why he kept that information (that a person needed to accept Christ and be saved) from the people of the church. i was lost as could be. didn't get saved until 3 years later. at that point NO ONE in my immediate or extended family was a born-again Christian.

Also I wanted to say that picture is just so beautiful.

I like the whole pink and greeen thing. One I forgot is I sing in the shower and I hate crawly things.

I have a xyron 510 and I don't know how to work it....hmmmmmmm????!! Maybe I can talk you into a tutoring session?????

Patti said...

I didn't know you had a Xryon...that means your crafty, right?? *jealous* :)

If you like pink and green, you should come hang out in Emersyn's nursery. She too has an affinity for those two colors together. :) :)

Sheri,
Here are the odd things about me
:-)

1. I LOVE hugs.

2. I love reading and just recently discovered the Kindle
app for my iPhone so now I can have a book with me to read all of the time. (although I'm struggling with the part about not having the actual book to put on my shelf when I'm done with it)

3. My new favorite thing to eat is avocados. I've hated them all my life until about last year.

4. I'm obsessed with purses and feel like I need a new one about every three months. I try to go back and use some of the old ones but that only satisfies me for a while.

5. I hate when people touch my hair after I've gotten ready in the morning (except my stylist)

6. I love the sound of my kids belly laughing

7. Last year I hated the colors purple and grey and swore to myself I would never wear them. This year I have at least six things in my closet that are those colors.

8. I can't sleep with a short sleeve shirt on, it has to be long sleeve. The coolness on my arms wakes me up.

9. I always wanted to be a "June Cleaver" mom but I'm the farthest thing from it.

10. I HATE doing laundry.

Heidi said...

Loved reading about you! So blessed to know you! Heeeeeere's Heidi...

1. ALL the closets in my house are color coordinated. Dark-light colors, long-short sleeve.

2. EVERYTHING I wear must match (what you see and don't).

3. I DESPISE the feeling of dirty hands.

4. Born in Hollywood, Ca on Mother's day after 2 boys.

5. I don't watch TV.

6. Vacuuming is my favorite chore.

7. I always have a candle burning somewhere in my house.

8. Peonies are my favorite flower.

9. I'm PETRIFIED beyond normalcy of s.n.a.k.e.s. (shuttering).

10. This list was very difficult for me to compose.

1. I can pick up snakes and bugs but run screaming from bees or wasps.
2. I have random humor – in other words I relate with Alice in Wonderland
3. I collected feathers and bones as a child.
4. When I go to beaches I’m obsessed with finding a whole sand dollar.
5. I can’t stand blue highlighters – they are too dark.
6. I make up words, like a lot.
7. I take like 300 pics a month since getting my Canon Rebel camera.
8. I can down a pint of ice cream like nothing.
9. I can shoot a gun right or left handed.
10. I was once told that I’m a jack of all trades but master of none. (lol, sounds bad but in context was meant as a compliment)

I copied mine straight from my comment on Beth Moore's blog, lol.
