450 ramblings and so many more to go...

I can't believe it, it's my 450th post. That's a lot of ramblings from a "donut" with crooked eyebrows isn't?

Why yes, yes it is. I 'm hoping for 450 more...

I started this blog out of boredom. Plain boredom and it seemed that all the cool kids were doing it, so I figured I could too. Over a year and a half later, I've reconnected with 3 wonderful girls I went to high school with and met so many more wonderful bloggers.

So on a day where I can't think of anything else to write about, I did find a list of "things about me" somewhere in the archives.

It may be time to add to it I suppose. Here it goes, of course in no specific order.

1. I am named after my father, but I won't be able to post my real name since my first name is unusual and can be googled, therefore linking me to this blog.
2.I named myself Crooked Eyebrow, I dig it.
3.I have lived in Indiana all my life.
4.Speaking of #1, I don't speak to my father any longer. One day I hope I can find peace within myself to speak to him and forgive. Until then, I can't.
5.I have a dog named chester
6. We often joke that we think he would speak like an old British man. "Bloody hell, fetch me a bone"

To Think is to Create said...

I don't think your voice is that low, but I know what you mean...I've always thought mine was low too.

I want to hear your opinions! :)

P.S. Did you guys have fun on Sat? I heard you got the Diva Who Screams A Lot With The Screaming to fall asleep.

Lynette said...

Very good random thoughts. So were you a fan of Clifford the Big Red Dog? Emily Elizabeth?!?!?!

Crooked Eyebrow said...

Nope it was just a name we liked, Emily and Elizabeth was after my mom. I had no idea it was the little girl from clifford.

SJ said...

I too drink dark roasted coffee, black - no sugar! And I LOVE Barry White. And yep, I can touch my nose with my tongue too!

Great list, I love these and I feel like I know you even better :)

Carrington said...

This is awesome, you managed to make it really authentic and honest, way to go! By the way, I think you are beautiful, and such a blast, I am so happy I got the chance to hang out with you. Um, a few things to mention...I strongly dislike Gloria Estefan too, and way to go with quitting smoking... you rock!

Ann(ie) said...

Dude! We have a ton in common. Why in the world do you live so far away????? I love Neil Diamond, I don't talk to my dad either and feel the same way about it that you do, I love buffalo wings, tulips, pizza, cookie dough, Coach purses and I hate to cook. birds of a feather!

Lisa said...

I'm with you on the treadmill thing. That was my thought when I first got home, but here I sit. Sad to say, we don't have that much in common. Just the pizza, hating to cook, and one you did not of IKEA!!

I loved reading all this about you! I totally agree with you about the Presidential Candidates and a few other things here, too!


Sarah said...

OMG! My older sister loved Gloria Estafan. I thought if I heard the rhythm is gonna get you one more time it was gonna get her. I totally dislike beer and love some buffalo wings.
I have the best lotion for hands that are dry. I have my hands in water all the time and since I got it my hands are soft. Not the cracked bleeding painful things attached to my wrists like last winter. Just let me know I will totally send you some!

chrissy said...

Whew, were you exhausted after this post, there is a ton of honesty in here!!
I did go a long long time without talking to me Dad, don't know what happened with you or if there is a chance of change. My dad and I are very close now!
Low voice, it could be worse, your voice could be super high-pitched like mine and be annoying!!
Great post, I enjoyed reading it.
