Ten Random Factoids about Michelle plus 2 B sides for the fans!

You may or may not know...

1. I would sell the farm for 30 seconds with Clive Owen. That man is the epitome of sexy to me. I see him and I just want to purr. My loins completely burn for him. Hurts so good! just look at him...he is teasing me.

2. I have a fake belly button. (no, really!)

3. I am a crybaby. That's right, I have been accused of crying at grocery store openings. I see a dead duck in the street, I cry. I see Pampers on sale, I cry. I fall in love...and out, I cry. You get the picture.

4. I have a VERY unhealthy relationship with food. Some might call it my alcohol. I gain and lose 25 lbs every year. At present, I'm on the gain train...that 3rd chin is coming in so nicely. I finally hired someone to help me understand how to be healthy with food and not use diets but use balance in eating and incorporating weight training...but that sure didn't stop me from downing my mothers brownies and rice krispie treats tonight. Chris Farley in Gap girls comes to mind.."LAY OFF I'M STARVING!" Ugh.

5. I met one of my best friends while dating her ex-husband and then later on dating her new husbands cousin unknowingly. Clearly neither worked out. I can't decide on who the common denominator is, me or her. Curious.

6. I have seen U2 a whopping 28 times. Yes, my experiences were worth EVERY penny spent. I have been all over the world and have had some pretty incredible experiences with the band themselves. My favorite? Definiately Bono holding my hand and singing With Or Without You to me at two (thats right baby) TWO different concerts. Washington D.C. and London. Sorry I do like to revisit that moment at times. Sure it bores the rest of you.

7. I have performed the Heimlich Manuever on someone at a wedding. This was very recently and I cried like a baby afterwords (were you really surprised?) I'm pleased to report that I was in fact able to dislodge the gum she was choking on and she was fine after a few minutes. I on the other hand was a mess. A relieved mess. The worst feeling in the world is when you think to yourself, "I can't help this person, they're about to pass out and die." I hope I never have to do it again.

8. I have really, really bad luck and really, really good luck. There's never a happy medium...it's either one extreme or the other.

9. My friends have named the world I live in 'Moshipotamia' hence the name of the blog. Weird things that happen to the common folk are my everyday.

10. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't talk to my mother and Britta.


11. I talk to my dogs Bruno & Bianca--both chocolate labs. Scary I know, but they know what I'm saying. My favorite part of the day is when I come home and they go bizerk with excitement for my hugs. I tell them I missed them and kiss their little faces.

12. I hate home ownership. It's brilliant financially, but holy cow it's too much work for one person. My poor back yard is something resembling Sanford and Son. Between school and two jobs, I feel like there aren't enough hours in the day. Ugh.

Nothing about Greek? PS - You're U2 stories NEVER bore me. :)

Kristin said...

Okay, I LOVE the new post WAY more... these were things I didn't know (not all of them anyway). I'm totally jealous of Britta. And your U2 stories don't bore me either. In fact, I still have a section in my scrapbook that needs YOUR journaling. The story in DC (I think that's the one). Ah! Those were the days! I'm getting home-sick... miss you guys!

You, Britta, and your old man crushes!

Britta said...

I'm so excited that you are blogging again
