A Few Random Things About Me- 21 thru 25

25- I took an actual break-dancing class in the 80's. The instructor's name was Angel. I used to be able to do the worm... until I grew boobs.

24- We named our daughter Joey after Joe Sakic. It was either that or Claudette. ;)

23- I have my bellybutton pierced. Still. I'm beginning to feel that this is something that I am maybe too old for. But, I've had it for something like 13 years, so it's part of me. Mostly I just forget that I'm a person with a pierced belly (which I guess isn't as unusual as it seems).

22- I think I have the opposite of anorexia, at least in terms of self perception. People with anorexia see themselves as fat, no matter how thin they become. I picture myself (even when looking directly in the mirror) as about the same size as I was in college (not to mention the same age). Then, I'll see a picture of myself from a different angle and wonder who that chubby person in my clothes is. It's shocking, really.

(This is what I see when I look in the mirror. Well, usually without the vodka and cranberry juice.)

21- I am very easily amused. Which, I guess, means I am not at all sophisticated. I am constantly in awe of everything around me.

I'm with you on #22. I still think of myself as 16, cute and slim. Then I see a photo or even worse a video and it's not pretty.

I have the same problem as far as #22. In fact, if it weren't for the scale I am sure I would really believe that I looked as good as I did back then.

That's funny that, that is what you see, because I looked at that picture and thought this was a picture of your trip to Georgia this year. So I guess that means thats how I see you too. :)

Ha. Jeff thought I looked about 15 when he saw it.

Aurora, if I was brave enough to put up the pictures from when we went dancing last time, I'd show just how different I look now.

And to both Green Bean and Aimee, I am so glad you have this too. I think we're in the minority.

I *KNEW* I wasn't the only one with reverse self-perception issues. Or whateverwewanttocallit.

I totally buy clothes (um, and bikinis, mind you) thinking that I'm still the size 4 rail I was at 18.

At *almost* 30, I'm more of a squishy, curvy woman than all that.

*Sigh* At least I'm not as much of a tard as I was back then.

I have this #22 perception too! And I'm twice the size I was back then. But I guess I just don't look at my bod much in the mirror, and rarely make it into photos, and when I do, it's OMG...
