Some of the Bart...

For all you non-facebook users and my madre... 25 random things... careful... it'll rip your face off.

1. I was really shy growing up… I still am in certain situations. I just fake that I’m not.

2. I use wittiness as a defense mechanism to thwart all attackers from breaching the outer wall of ME.

3. I wish I was still a kid. School was easy, I dominated at sports, girls liked me, all my meals were homemade, I saved my money to buy baseball cards.

4. My beverages of choice are: Whole milk, Gatorade, and Dr. Pepper.

5. I don’t understand a single thing about Chemistry.

6. I hardly ever remember my dreams. Really, I’m lucky if I can recall one dream per month. My most recent remembrance: I was on the Phoenix Suns playing with Steve Nash against the Dallas Mavericks and I hit the game winner over Dirk. Any surprise there?

7. I hate winter. It might be because I am the size of Nastia Luken, or because I grew up in the tundra-ed wilderness of Wyoming. The real reason? I am a normal minded person. Who in their right mind likes being cold? This hatred has driven me to several months of social hibernation.

8. I’ve been skydiving and recommend it often. I would love to go again… next time I’ll be sure to wear a helmet.

9. I already have 3 names picked out for 3 kids… now I’m just working on the twins’ names…

10. I WILL have a golden retriever, and a chocolate/yellow/black lab.

11. I hate shopping… mostly because I never have enough money to go shopping. (food/clothing/whatever) And when I do have money… I hate the fact that I have to use it to go shopping. Then, when I’m done shopping, I hate that I no longer have that money because I just used it to shop.

12. I’ve never had braces.

13. My favorite place in the world is Mallorca: an island in the Mediterranean just off the coast of Spain. I lived there for 6 months and would love to have a summer house on the coast!

14. The most I have ever weighed is 167 lbs… the least… 2 lbs 2oz…

15. My favorite band of all time is Five Iron Frenzy. They’re a ska band. I hate ska.

16. I have a gnarly scar across my left shoulder blade that extends down to the side of my ribcage. My grandparents took me on an African safari and we got a little too close to the lion cubs… just kidding… really, I was working one summer in Orange County and was learning to surf with some buddies, a shark came out of no where… no, not really… we went up into the Wyoming wilderness for Scouts and we were collecting wood to take home for the fireplace, I scaled a tree with a small hatchet while my older brother worked on a tree nearby… he chopped it down, it swung in my direction and knocked me out of my tree… I fell at least twenty feet and landed on the hatchet… yeah… that’s not true either. Do you want the real story?

17. I once pelted a girl on a bicycle with a water balloon, from at least 50 yards away, with a homemade water balloon launcher. She fell off. (Thank you Jordan) One of the greatest days of my life.

18. I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.

19. I went through a roller hockey phase in 6th/7th grade. Two-on-two roller hockey. I hated being goalie. I also went through a WCW wrestling phase that included choke-slamming my little brother on the trampoline and on couches. That’s not safe. Should I mention the Backstreet Boys phase? No? What about Hannah Montana?

20. I hate writing with pencils!! If I do, it HAS to be mechanical. I also HATE the feeling of cotton balls and the little squeaking sound!!! It drives me nuts!

21. I’ve always wanted to learn how to do a backflip. The one time I tried was on the beach in California and I ended up with a face full of sand.

22. I loooooove going to baseball games! Sunflower seeds, peanuts, Big League Chew, Dr. Pepper, Hot Dogs and Nachos! I can’t wait for Spring!

23. I once coached a 5th grade girls basketball team… also a women’s college basketball team… you’d think there’d be a difference in the level of talent… haha jk

24. I went to high school with a bazillion of my cousins… I wish we could hang out all the time!

25. I grew up on a Wyoming ranch!

I loved all the stuff you wrote. Just a few comments from your madre....that also sheds light on 'some of Bart'.
1. shy and 2. witty kind of work together on that wall you build. there's an amazing person behind that wall. 3. I can see why you want to still be kid, because the world, quite frankly doesn't make it easy to be an adult. I wanna be a kid again too. 4. add H2O to your list (just a suggestion) 5. Chemistry...there are only a few people on this earth that understand chemistry. GO FOR IT PEOPLE! who cares! 6. Your dad does not remember dreams either. Not a one. 7. Hate of are right, who would ever want to be cold? I really hope heaven is always warm! 8. a helmet for skydiving would be good for lots of reasons, but are you referring to the 'hair' thing in your photo? LOL 9. Names for kids....hmmmm....I'd like to hear those, and especially the ones for the twins. Are the twins girls or boys or one of each? 10. Dogs are good :) 11. shopping IS no fun. the only time shopping could be fun is if you win the lottery, and then I wanna come too. 12. Do you regret or have some underlying resentment towards your parents since you didn't have braces? 13. Mallorca - find some contacts there and move there and that may help with number 18. what you want to be when you grown up???? Seriously, you loved it there, maybe you could work there?? I think it would be cool
14. Be glad you aren't a woman who would never publicly list her weights on a blog for the world to see! You look great! 15. ska, ok whatever. 16. scar, that one I know, and I won't tell the true story! 17 and 25 go together...that poor girl! 19. I remember Brandon being your roller hocky friend and Cretia also a victim of your slam dunking on the trampoline. Back street boys still rock, but Hannah Montana? 20. I will be putting cotton and pencils in your Christmas stocking next year 21 might have learned how to do that on the tramp if you hadn't been so busy slamming everyone into the trampoline! 22 baseball games DUH! 23 Coach Gadbury has a nice ring to it 24 Your cousins all love you too! AND SO DO I!

B. Five Iron it a chick singer? that song goodbye my lover?
C. Dr. Pepper rocks my world.

There isn't a difference in talent, is there...? Now that I've said this I've got to watch out for my wife because we both know that she could kick our trash in Knockout.
