25 Random Things About Me

  1. My favorite holiday is Halloween.
  2. I have a phobia about driving on overpasses.  Lots of deep breathing required.

  1. I'm with you on the barefoot thing (drives my wife NUTS!) and the spider thing (they're not hurting anybody, why do I have to kill them?!?) and the country music (I love bluegrass and really old country, but not the stuff from today).
    BUT, Hemingway (aghast!) Really? I guess it's good to know what ya like and not.
    And awkward I wore a poodle skirt in 7th grade (not really, but I did dress as a nun for halloween one year to my buddy's priest costume. We went around to a few bars after work announcing "a priest and a nun walk into a bar")
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. LOL! I know, I feel like such a doofus when I say I don't care for Hemingway's writing style. *Hangs head* I'm still reading his short stories, trying. :)

  3. I love this random list! Gives me a good idea of who you are...but one thing...white is NOT a colour ;) White is...when you must, white is like the alpha and omega of colour...it has all colours in it and all colours sprout from it...
    *mutters* I've got to make a list like that.

    1. I know, isn't it strange that my favorite color is actually the absence of color? Wonder what that says about my personality. ;) I guess I'm a rebel. LOL! I would love to read your list.
