100 things about me, part 2

21.) I own a lot of Nalgene bottles. 8 to be exact, and they are all covered in stickers.

22.) I LOVE my iPod. I have almost 5,000 songs on it, and I'm always looking for something new to listen to.

23.) I don't really like to read fiction books anymore. I read books about lots of random subjects, and I'm the queen of random facts/knowledge.

24.) No matter how clean the rest of my room may be, my coffee table seems to always be messy. This bothers me, but there doesn't seem to be anything I can do about it.

25.) I love to catch fish, but I'm not really a big fan of fishing. I'm perfectly content to sit around catching sunfish if the walleye or bigger fish aren't biting. Rapala has an advertisement about their new bait being for people who like to catch not fish, and I think they must have created it just for me.

26.) I had braces for two years and a month, and it was one of the best things ever. I'm known as a smiley person, but before it was hard to smile my overbite was so bad.

27.) I'm earning a degree in environmental science, but I really have no idea what I want to do with that degree. I'm sure I will go to grad school, but for what, I don't know.

28.) I don't like seafood. The only kind of seafood I will eat is salmon.

29.) My favorite subjects in school have always been sciences and foreign languages. I HATED having to take English, philosophy, and home ec. I thought they were beneath me.

30.) I love freeze pops. The blue ones are the best, though I also like the pink ones.

31.) I have a lot of wood floors in my house, and I love them. I like the look and feel of wood, but it does get a little chilly in the mornings in winter.

32.) I have a list of jobs that I would like to do for a week. This includes : being a mailman, working construction, being a train engineer, and being a jeweler.

33.) I'm extremely impatient. I hate it when people can't make up their minds about simple things or walk too slowly. It's a habit I constantly get yelled at for, but patience is coming slowly to me.

34.) I love the idea of buying and reading books, but I don't like having all the books lying around. It's that whole fear of clutter thing.

35.) When I drink water, I like it to be ice cold. I'm pretty sure the ice cube maker in the fridge at my parents' house is pretty much off when I'm not around.

36.) I eat more fruit than a toucan, and I love vegetables. I'd make a good vegetarian except for the part where I do like some kinds of meat, and I believe that humans are not designed to be vegetarians.

37.) The Wild are my team, but I do have a really large soft spot in my heart for the Oilers and Canadiens. People may call me traitor, but what can you do? The Oilers had Wayne Gretzky, and the Habs have been around for 100 years, and have been good for most of them. Besides, it gives me a chance to flex my French speaking skills and I love the sweaters.

38.) I love maps. I have several up on my walls, and I have many more that I occasionally open and stare at. I like to travel, and I like adventures, so usually the maps I have that are drawn all over are of remote places. Gates of the Arctic National Park is a place I would LOVE to visit.

39.) I don't like to sit around. My schedule at school is always packed, and when I'm home if I'm not at work, I like to keep busy. I'm incapable of napping.

40.) I'm told that I'm a sound sleeper. I sleep through everything, (jack hammers, smoke alarms, Rock Band) and I hope that doesn't get me trapped in a burning building sometime. I also talk in my sleep, but almost never in English.

Freezepops are possible the greatest thing ever.

And I also sleep through almost anything. Maybe it's a MN thing.

By the way, I think you should teach me Finnish.

wood floors are the best. They're so much cleaner/classier looking than all carpet....or something.

Maps are so cool! That's awesome you have some on your walls. This store I went into in England had all these crazy rad antique maps and shit. I was really tempted to buy some.

Elise-freezepops are what keep me sane at work. We always have them lying around for the kids, and the intern apparently.
It might be a MN thing, or it might be an age thing. My mom says you don't sleep as soundly once you have kids.
We can work on that, but I can imagine you'd much rather learn from a certain center with a twinkle and an obsession with sweaters...

Alix-It's true! Wood floors are SO much easier to keep clean than carpeting.
God, I totally would have gotten some. I don't think I can pass a map by without at least looking, usually buying.
