30 Million Day Blog Challenge #1: Hello, Picture, Random Facts

Recently, Marianna at Snappy Surprise took up the 30 day blog challenge. Looks like fun!  I'm joining in too, but, I'll probably only post one challenge a week.  So it'll be more like a 30 million day blog challenge.  Or 30 week.  Whatever.

Day 01 - Introduction, a recent photo, and 15 interesting facts about yourself.

Introduction: I once went to law school - it was Step 4 in my plan to become Master of the Universe. Then life happened. Now I stay at home with my two children. I blog about my inept parenting skills, embarrassing childhood, and bipolar depression.  I also give the occasional unsolicited, unwarranted,  and probably unfavorable product review. Rest assured, there is some one out there dorkier than you. It's me. FYI, if you want to read the same thing twice, check out my psychoanalysis tab.

A recent photo:

15 facts about me:

  1. I do not like being photographed. I prefer to be behind the camera or in another room, especially if that room has snacks in it.
  2. If I don't have my calendar on me, I have no idea what I'm doing.  It has replaced my brain.
  3. Before having kids I was all, "I'll never feed my kids processed food."  Now I give them Cocoa Puffs for breakfast.
  4. I sort of enjoy the songs they sing on "The Fresh Beat Band."
  5. I stepped on a "My Little Pony" Happy Meal toy this morning, and swore.
  6. I harbor a secret desire to be a librarian.
  7. I love my mood stabilizers, and am happy to be on them the rest of my life if it stops me from spiraling down into the deepest depression.
  8. I want to own a horse.  In other news, I'm secretly an 11-year-old girl.
  9. I used to teach ballet, and miss it terribly.
  10. I love Flogging Molly.
  11. I love Monty Python.
  12. I'm not afraid of heights, but I'm afraid of dangling.
  13. My toddler decided 10:00 pm is a perfectly cromulent bedtime, and it's making me insane more insane. 
  14. I wake up at 5:00 in the morning, to secure at least a half-hour of alone/coffee time before the kids are up.
  15. I'm not a huge fan of oatmeal, but I eat it anyways. 

So there you have it. Take a look at what's in store for the future.  It's like being psychic or something!

Your photograph made me happy and #8 made me laugh. Awesomeness abounds.

I love Flogging Molly! Such a great band for spinning to . . . and probably drinking but I haven't actually tried that yet.

I am so with you about photographs as well. And Monty Python. And . . . what a second . . . did I write this list! ;)

@Vapid Vixen - Thanks!

@Fox in the City - Huzzah! Another Flogging Molly fan :)

yay for taking on the blogging challenge.
I've already failed it, but I'll continue because I'm JUST FINE with mediocre success.

Angela@BeggingTheAnswer said...

@SarcasminAction - Hey, I already acknowledge this will take me 30 million, not 30, days to complete. It's good to know your own limits.

I'm assuming by #10 you mean the band and have not, in fact, named part of yourself Molly.

Yay for the million day blog challenge!

These are the best 15 things I've read yet. Number 1 made me laugh - snacks! I am afraid of heights, but I totally get the dangling thing. My Little pony - ha!

This is a fun challenge to follow. Kind of like those old Myspace surveys, but without the Pyzam glitter comments. :)
