16 Random Items....

Dawn posted this a week or so ago and instead of being original and coming up with my own 16 Random Items I just, um, stole hers.

Not really stole, I mean I just used her topics as my starting point. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? Right?

1. I have never made my own pie crust. I've made tons of pies but never, ever have taken the time to make the crust from scratch. Someday, I'm sure I will - but honestly, I don't even care to learn how.

2. I'm always afraid that my shoelaces will come undone and my foot will be sucked into the escalator. I double and triple check the shoes of anyone that's with me too.

3. I sort of like bologna.

4. The winged monkeys from the Wizard of Oz totally scared the hell out of me when I was little. Same with the crows from Dumbo.

5. I use Firefox.

6. I used to eat canned fruit cocktail when I was a kid and the cherries were the best. Oh, to have a can with an extra cherry!

7. I have only just learned to spell definitely.

8. I didn't start eating mushrooms until after I had my son - and then I fell in love with them. And then I had an allergic reaction to something with cremini mushrooms, which I heard were just baby portabella mushrooms and now I only eat the white ones.

9. I could use a cut and color. My hair is now wavy, apparently - after being straight for the entire rest of my life. Weird.

10. Am moderately excited for baseball season, hating the Yankees, at this point, even more than I thought possible. The MLB network is just superfluous to me...we've got NESN and pretty much that's a Red Sox channel come April. I say moderately because April will mean that hockey is just about done and it's the Bruins that I'm really loving right now.

11. My life is totally different than I would've ever imagined. I sometimes think I took the path of least resistance but honestly? I'm so glad that I did.

12. I go to both aquariums and zoos but I'm not really crazy about either one. The kids love going, happy kids = happy mom, so I don't particularly mind.

13. I could be doing a lot better on the whole Green Living thing.

14. Now I'm wanting to make Shepard's Pie.

15. I have posts. In drafts.

16. My favorite TV character on Veronica Mars was her dad.

You just made me laugh so hard!!

As for MLB Network. It is welcome relief for those of us who are subjected to Rays hell. ;-)

The Shepherd's Pie? Was delicious. I urge you to make some.
