108 Things About Me

108 Things About Me

 

  • I’m 24 years old.
  • I tried really hard for a really long time to become a rock star.
  • But that just left me piss poor and hung over with bad skin, so I quit trying, got married and had a kid.
  • My daughter is 2 years old and I am pregnant with a boy (due: September 2005)
  • I was born and raised in Philadelphia.
  • I hated the movie Philadelphia.
  • I hated the song Streets Of Philadelphia by Bruce Springsteen even more.
  • I met Bruce Willis, John Cusack *swoon*, Ozzy, all the lame brains in Dream Theater, and Michael J. Fox all while walking on the streets of Philadelphia.
  • Philadelphia isn’t the place to try to become a rock star or raise a family.
  • So, I smartened up and just recently moved from the middle of Philadelphia to the middle of the suburbs/country.
  • Needless to say, it’s been quite a change.
  • But I’m much happier here, as I consider Philadelphia to be a complete cess pool.
  • The City was fun while I was in high school, but now, as I’m all old and boring, there’s too much crime, too much traffic, too much bullshit going on. And it’s filthy.
  • I hated high school.
  • I was one of those punk girls with a mohawk and Doc Martens that everyone used to throw shit at.
  • I have long since grown the mohawk out.
  • Looking at pictures, I often hear the voices in my head ask, “What the hell were you thinking?”
  • I was thinking that I wanted to marry Billy Idol. THAT is what I was thinking. Duh…
  • I have a thing for British bad boys with spikey, bleached blonde hair. Namely, Billy Idol, Russell Mitchell, and that guy that played Spike on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, James Marsters
  • I started playing the guitar when I was 15.
  • I think it was because I thought people would think I was cool.
  • It didn’t work. People still threw shit at me.
  • Did I mention that I hated highschool?
  • I was in a bunch of really crappy bands that don’t even deserve the label “Garage Bands”.
  • I have 7 guitars.
  • I can read music and play by ear. I prefer to play by ear.
  • I hated the whole grunge scene. It completely killed my favorite metal/punk bands at the time.

  • We got engaged in April 2002.
  • We got pregnant in May 2002.
  • We got married in June 2002.
  • Obviously, I’m pretty impulsive.
  • I gave birth to my daughter, Lil Miss RockStar, in February 2003.
  • I was in labor for 21 excruciating hours. That’s what I said. TWENTY ONE HOURS
  • I have an extremely high tolerance for pain, but that sucked.
  • My daughter, however, does not suck. She rules.
  • My extended family has never quite agreed with my lifestyle, but most of them are capable of half-way accepting me anyway.
  • Even though my husband is just as unconventional as I am, they seem to have a much easier time accepting him.
  • I hate double standards.

  • It’s just like in highschool except now people don’t throw things at me.
  • Did I mention that I HATED highschool?
  • I’m a huge Harry Potter geek fan.
  • People always call me childish and immature. I don’t deny this. In fact, I embrace it.

  • I used to go to concerts and shows multiple times a week.
  • Since I’ve had my daughter that number has dropped drastically.
  • I don’t mind staying home, though. We listen to music and dance together.
  • Just like how I pretend that I was RockStar, I now like to pretend that I am a photographer. So I take pictures of everything.
  • Don’t be fooled by my boldness to post every picture I take, I do not think I am a good photographer.
  • I just love my life. And I love posting pictures about it.
  • No matter how unconventional and immature I may seem, I am very responsible about taking care of my family.

  • I’ve been biting my nails since I was two years old.
  • I’ve been trying to quit biting my nails since I was about 6. It’s worse than a crack habit.
  • I have about a bazillion pairs of shoes – and show no signs of slowing down the collection.
  • Luckily, I do not follow trends, so the shoes that I buy are never too expensive.
  • I love singing. But I don’t think I’m a good singer.
  • This doesn’t stop me from singing along to Total Eclipse Of The Heart every time it comes on the radio.
  • With the windows UP, of course. I do have a reputation to keep.
  • That being said, I’m a huge Kermit the Frog freak. I have a massive collection, and actually enjoy the movies.
  • I hate vacuuming. Probably because I have to do it at least twice a day.
  • I love animals.
  • We have a pitbull, RockStar Puppy. (For all of you that don’t know, Pitbulls are MADE to be mean. Ours is the sweetest dog I have ever owned.)
  • Even though I don’t generally eat meat, I don’t consider myself a vegetarian. I was a vegetarian for 8 years, and a vegan for 14 months, but when I got pregnant my Dr. advised that I drastically change my eating habits since I was drastically underweight. So, I did.

  • I have really small feet, esepcially considering that I’m 5’8.
  • I am a perfectionist. But I am lazy. These two characteristics make living peacefully extremely hard.
  • My husband is the hottest guy I know.
  • I’m not just saying that because he’s my husband and he’s reading this so I’m obligated. I’m saying it because, inside and out, he’s absolutely gorgeous.
  • I think Tim Burton is a genius.
  • I used to never watch TV. Now I love it.
  • I’m addicted to Late Night With Conan O’Brien.
  • I am a junk food junkie. Low Carb diets are for wussies.
  • I’m 24 but still get carded for cigarettes and booze ’cause everyone says I look like I’m 17.
  • Everyone also says I look like either Diane Lane or Mandy Moore.
  • I take Diane Lane as a compliment.
  • But saying I look like Mandy Moore is a good way to get a broken nose.
