Seven Randoms

1. I’ve been to some amazing cities of the world: Paris, London, Venice, Rome, Florence, Amsterdam, Vancouver, New York City, Washington DC, Los Angeles, Waikiki, and more. But Disneyland just might be my favorite vacation spot.

2. I have always been able to fall asleep at the drop of a hat. I just turn off the light, roll onto my stomach and I’m out in 60 seconds or less. However, if I wake up in the middle of the night, any time after 3:00 am, I’m up for the morning. It’s ridiculous. No matter how hard I try, I can’t get back to sleep. Luckily my husband is an amazing man and gets up with the kids if they wake up. I snagged a good one, ladies! 

3. One of my favorite nighttime snacks is air popped popcorn with melted butter and the cheese mix from a box of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese. Hey! Don’t knock it till you try it. It’s messy and greasy and you get orange cheese fingers, but it is so good. It’s not good for you, so I don’t eat it often.

4. I bought a second TiVo, an iPhone 4, and a Nook in one week. These should keep me busy, right? I’m done spending on electronics for a loooooong time!

5. I prefer to drink out of cups rather than glasses. For all drinks: water, milk, juice, soda, even wine, champagne or vodka. Lip marks on the rim of a glass really give me the creeps, even if it's my own.

6. I might have got a little teary watching Atlantis lift-off last week. After watching the movie Space Camp on repeat as a kid, visiting Kennedy Space Center, and watching the Endeavour lift-off when I was 12, I kinda wanted to be an astronaut. Then I found out you have to be really, really good at math. I was not. I’m also blind and too tall. I didn’t even have a chance. I'm gonna miss the shuttle program.

7. I love putting away items when I get home from shopping. Groceries, bathroom stuff, clothes, even diapers. I love unwrapping it all and putting it where it belongs. It’s the OCD in me.

I am so glad to hear your little one is doing well. I know exactly how you felt when you saw him hooked up to all those wires and machines.

I'm glad the surgery went smoothly.

I have 2 DVRs, a Nook and an iPhone 4. I don't know what I'd do without them.

Aw, thank ya! OK, so at first I thought that popcorn cheese idea sounded gross, but now that I've let it sink in, it's sounding a bit interesting. I just may have to give it a try...
