In honor of my 400th post, and since I’m too cheap to buy a domain name or even a Flickr pro account, I thought I would share stuff about me:

  1. My father taught me how to read when I was about 2 ½.
  2. I skipped a kindergarten because of that.
  3. This resulted in me being the second youngest person in my graduating class.
  4. The only other person is sixteen days younger than I am.
  5. I blame my social stigmas in high school on skipping a grade.
  6. I got glasses when I was 7.
  7. I got contacts right before 8th grade.
  8. I also got my last perm that week too.
  9. Quite eventful, huh?
  10. My mom is Shirley.
  11. She’s a natural redhead.
  12. My grandmother is too.
  13. I have a birthmark on my left leg that looks like a red strawberry.
  14. I used to tell people it’s where all my red hair color got diverted to, instead of my head.
  15. I’m still jealous that I’m not a natural redhead.
  16. I seriously, SERIOUSLY, love redheaded people
  17. I want redheaded babies.

  22. I can remember A LOT of my dreams.
  23. I frequently have recurring dreams.
  24. I dreamed about a little redheaded girl for six weeks once.
  25. When the dreams stopped, she and her family started coming to my church.
  26. Her name is Tamara, she’s 15 now, and she’s still one of my favorites.
  27. I wanted to be grown-up as a little girl.

  39. Kinda stinks when your name has an F in it, huh?
  40. I once painted my nails with a Blue Permanent marker.
  41. I hated anklets (the socks for little girls with lace on them), so I would stick my feet in the toilet so my mother would have to take them off.
  42. I got spankings every Sunday morning for weeks over that until my grandmother found knee socks with lace on them in Boaz, Alabama.
  43. Did I mention I was a preppy/nerdy little girl?
