me – in bits and pieces 2

Filed under: Uncategorized — prothro @ 12:05 pm

So here is the second installment of the sixty random facts challenge:

21. I’m horrible at checking voicemail, as of this morning I had 24.

22. I like my steaks medium rare.

23. I have had two broken bones. Both in my arm, one was a bicycle accident, one was a snowboarding incident.

24. I love games. 42, catchphrase, spades and backgammon are some of my favorites.

25. I used to play the flute in junior high. I was usually second chair.

26. I drink very little water on the average day. Once in high school, I had to be taken by ambulance to the hospital for dehydration. You’d think I’d have learned my lesson but you’d be wrong. (That day was a pretty major embarrassment-maybe at some point there will be a blog about it.)

27. I was born in Jersey Village, TX but moved to Scottsdale, AZ when I was in 3rd grade. (I snuck my fish Frisky on the plane, instead of paying $50 to bring him.)

28. I still go to the dentist and doctor for regular check ups. Only because my husband makes me.

29. I’ve beaten guitar hero on medium.

30. I prefer red wine.

31. I usually only get my hair cut every six months. Oops.

32. Every winter I knit scarves. In college, I’d average three a winter. This year I’ll continue work on last year’s scarf, which is still only a foot and a half long.

33. I know those twisty light bulbs are better for the world, but I don’t like the color of light they make, so they’re only allowed in the garage. It’s one of my strict rules.

34. I’ve never smoked a cigarette. I have had some cigars.

35. My proudest academic accomplishment was getting an A in the lab of A&P319. Leaving that last test was like leaving prison. My Shawshank moment, complete with rain.

36. At a casino in Santa Fe, I won $75 with three quarters. It all happened within the first five minutes I was there.

37. I used to think my brother had a secret trap to release sharks into our pool while I was swimming alone. I got the idea from a James Bond movie.

38. My favorite candle smell is Volumspa’s Santiago Huckleberry. Sometimes I lay in bed holding the unlit candle to my nose and just breathing it. (please don’t stop being my friend after finding out how lame I am)

39. My vision is 20/40 in my right eye and 20/100 in the other. I also have hearing loss in the high pitch ranges in my left ear.

40.  Running is my least favorite activity. I’d rather clean toilets than run. No contest.

The final installment is still to come. Hope everyone is having a great Monday!


  1. I so wish I really had shark-release powers. Not to get you, per se. Just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should, and all that.
