10 Awesome Things About Me

"Brag about yourself," she's saying over at Ten on Tuesday. I guess noting that I'm very modest would be inappropriate, eh?

1. I'm very smart. Although I did a dumb thing in burning too many brain cells, I'm still very smart. Always have been. Intend to always be.

2. I'm quick-witted. It's a dog-eat-dog world, and I can chew up the best of 'em.

3. I am always willing to lend a hand, to a family member, to a friend, to a stranger. Could that also belong on the deficit side of the list? I suppose, but I like it better as an asset.

4. I -- along with Pete -- produced three gorgeous children.

5. I -- along with Pete -- am raising three happy, healthy children.

6. I can bullshit my way out of any situation.

7. I am an excellent writer.

8. I am very lucky. Just when it looks like I'm in a scrape I can't get out of, a miracle occurs and I emerge (nearly) unscathed.

9. Although I didn't appreciate them enough as a youngster or young adult, I am blessed with a strong, intelligent, beautiful, loving mother and sister...and many other female relatives of the same ilk.

10. I've got thick dark hair which hasn't turned too gray yet.

Catch others bragging over here.

Just by reading your list, you remind me of my best girlfriend. She doesn't take crap from anybody. She's strong, sweet, quick-witted and we've been bff's for 15 years....I love her so much.

Thanks for reminding me of her "coolness"!

Great list! I'm glad you produced wonderful children because mine are demon spawns *lol* j/k. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

#10 isn't fair at all considering what you told me in your email. I'm 32 and I have dark hair with way too much gray already. My friend Rebecca is 32 also and she agrees that there is something about being 32 - the gray just keeps cropping up EVERYWHERE. At 31, not so much. I don't think I will care about wrinkles, but having to color my hair will be horrible. I'm a low maintenance kind of gal. Ugh!

I've got thick blond hair which hasn't turned gray at all yet ;).

Nice list :).

Awesome list about awesome you! I've got thick brown hair and only a couple of wirey gray ones crop up every now and then. I pluck 'em right out!

Great, great, great! Wish I'd said some of these. The only one I surely cannot claim is the hair. Of course, that could be fixed, but I wear the gray. Love your wabbit photo, too!

I can agree with you for myself on most of these besides the children ones because I am not a parent yet. I love the bullshit in #6. I once told a supervisor that heard I was doing 8-balls that it was just pool. If that is good in a mental health and drug abuse center, then I don't know what is. I also don't have grey hair yet, but I never will (it will be gone long before that.)

Wish I had hair. I used to, back in the day.

#6 is an excellent skill, one which I don't have. I envy you.

I do think we share #7 in common.

My DH is like you - he is a great writer and bullshiter. He jokes that the two skills are related. ;)


I mentioned to Eldest the other night that I had a fairly wide open day Friday. Writer that he is, he wondered if I would perhaps like a wri...
