100 things about me?

  1. I'd actually rather cut off my fingers than sit down and type 100 things about me, so you'll get 28
  2. I'm only doing this cause it's 3:36 AM and I'm wide awake - I'd much rather be sleeping
  3. I just ordered An Autobiography of George Washington: With Edith Ellis as Scribe because I *am* really a dork
  4. I'm a Hoosier, I moved to Texas 8 years ago
  5. I think Bob Knight should have stayed in Indiana
  6. I hate out and back race courses
  7. I have a tendency to embellish
  8. I adore my daughter
  9. I want to always stay attractive and strong for my husband (and myself)
  10. My grandfather, uncle and dad were in the military - and yet I feel I know very little about it
  11. I don't like Executive Susan
  12. I'm perpetually early and late people make me insane
  13. I'm a horrible driver
  14. I think the world needs more nice people
  15. I go to bed early and wake early
  16. I like capital letters in sentences (sarah and jeff are exceptions because they are so cool, but I draw the line when they stop using punctuation)
  17. I think it rocks that I can run 6-7 miles *before* work
  18. I have no ability to use profanity in real life but I blog it occasionally
  19. I actually blog a lot of things that I would never say in my real world (sort of)
  20. I love red wine and gin martinis, but not much else (alcohol wise)
  21. If I like your blog I'll read the archives
  22. My dad had a heart attack 1 year ago and it still makes me cry
  23. Some of my friends are very strange, but I love them anyway
  24. I have a soft-spot for writers, artists and athletes
  25. I've wanted to run the Boston Marathon since I ran track in high school but didn't start running again until I was 33
  26. I have never given anyone a lap dance, not even my spouse
  27. I am almost debt free and it was *REALLY* hard for Shopper Susan
  28. I wear a Victoria Secret push-up bra because I can - and I love it

Suzie lies not. She is a terrible driver. Being in a vehicle with her frightens me.

Oh, and that "tendency to embellish" thing - that's a HUGE understatement. You know how sometimes the line between reality and fiction gets blurred a little bit? I think someone occasionally erases Suzie's line.

Our dad's heart attack was at my son's first birthday party. HAPPY BIRTHDAY COLE - Grandpa's on his way to the ER!

"18. I have no ability to use profanity in real life but I blog it occasionally"

I believe I develop touretts after 2 hours of running. I like to run by myself at these times, so i can yell words of encourage to myself.

Ditto on 14.
Ditto in reverse on 18.
Ditto on 15 (although I do relish the days I sleep in, for whatever reason.)
Ditto on 23 and 26.
PS. Have I mentioned that your new header is *cool*

26 has just shattered all my illusions (about librarians being honest - what did you think?)

Blogger Chad Austin said...

Nice list. Only 72 more to go.

4. Hey my parents are both Hoosiers, Winchester and Muncie.
9. I hope you want to stay attractive and strong for YOURSELF too.
20. You only love red wine and gin martinis? I take it you were just talking about alcohol.

i'm all over 7, 12, and 23...

and i hear ya on the 100 things. its a struggle, but its kinda fun learning random little factoids!

Blogger Bolder said...

OK, I hardly ever use CAPITAL letters, except in my blog. But, shout out to Susan, you are funny, smart, talented, athletic, and generous. Feel free to use those last four attributes in a sentence 'I am ________' to get you to at least 33.

Blogger Lora said...

Love this!! Makes me feel somewhat normal when I see how nutty we all really are!
Do you think VS will give the running blog family group a discount if enough of us buy that bra?????
Looking forward to the next time you're up in the middle of the nite so you can complete the list!

My dad died of a heart attack when I was 12. It's hard for me to think about it now more than 14 years later.

Blogger The Clyde said...

I agree with you on 6, makes no point...or races where you do loops, drives me crazy, all these roads/paths out there and you are going to makes us run the same thing twice???.

As for 26, perhaps the next time you decide to have a "hang over" like a few weeks ago, give it a try, might be a nice little surprise for your hubby.

How about "29. I think there are too many bikes in my house"?

10:22 AM  
Blogger Hilda said...

3 am, and awake at least it is a day off running.
Why don't you like the executive Susan?
You can write the other 72 on the next opportunity you are a great and funny writer... go a head!!

Blogger Danny said...

9: you mention this in your profile as well, but it always kind of bugged me. if not for your husband, you'd be happy being a fat slob? i'm with "zeke" - you should stay attractive for yourself (as well)!

28: "because I can". what are the criteria for being able to wear a VS push up bra? (is it just having breasts?)

29-100: i wouldn't even make it as far as you did...

Blogger Dirt Runner said...

I would have given everything to go to IU and play for Bob Knight.

11:21 AM  
Blogger Susan said...

Ok Danny and Zeke: Updated #9 and profile - sorry, I thought that for myself was implied.

Blogger Mark I. said...

We have at least two things in common:

1) I was once in debt. I'm a reformed compulsive buyer.
2) I've never given anyone a lap-dance either. ;)

Blogger Amy said...

IU rocks (I went there during the Knight era) and he was totally set up to be fired. Go Texas Tech!

Blogger The Spandex-King said...

Was anyone ever born in Texas?
I've never given anyone a lap dance.
I don't where a bra, if I didn't work out I might.
I love to eat, i guess that goes with the last one.
I adore my children

This is kinda fun, I have to make my list.
Take Care, The Spandex-King

Where in IN are you from?

I hear you about being early & stuff. I am always early. It's like a bad habit. I HATE when people are late though & my husband almost always is. It's so aggarvating.

I am very close to being debt free but I still love to shop. It feels good know the only debt I have is a mortgage.

I love V.S. too (not wearing it...), we have that in common!!!

Susan: Now you have set yourself up to finish the 100 wouldn't want your loyal readers to be disappointed! :0
Ditto on #6,12,14,26,27,28. #22 sorry. And of course - ditto on the adoration for daughter! Awesome that you do so much before work!!!

Hi Susan,

I found your blog through Sharon 'A Girl Running' (she actually inspired me to think about running) So now I jog/slow walk around the place. I am hoping to finish the Melbourne half marathon next October and the Marathon 1-2 years after that.

Love the list...what is a Hoosier?

5:31 PM  
Blogger susie said...

Hmmm, we have much more in common than the name. Much more. Except I'm not from Texas and I'm not a Hoosier:)

7:08 PM  
Blogger Elle said...

I too am bothered by the ass-movement:) Though I must confess I have given a lap-dance...

don't worry, i try not to avoid using punctuation.

Lucky you - I can't wear the push-up, I'd give myself black eyes or smother myself - and that is so not funny!

8:55 PM  
Blogger Rae said...

Thanks for sharing! I don't like Executive Rachel much myself, either. I wish Runner Rachel would zip Executive Rachel out of the office for a full time job of running, sleeping and watching Oprah.

V.S. is a great gift that keeps on giving, and giving, and giving ...

Blogger Jon (was) in Michigan said...

Are we talking the gel filled ones or the foam? Because the gel does a better job but they are kinda heavy, and actually the foam are easier to wash.

Blogger Susan said...

Am I the only one that thinks it's funny that Jon knows this!

#35 - Surely you are not talking about me?

Blogger D said...

Hmmmm....Jon in Michigan...even knows about washing them.....pondering ......

Your favorite store, VS has swim suits - expensive. There are a lot of places on-line that sell them as well. The one I sent back is from VS...sorry. If the new ones I ordered don't work, I will go back to VS because there is another one that I saw that looked nice.....

10:30 AM  
Blogger Wylee said...

I'm so with ya on the VS bras... me and VS go together like peanutbutter and jelly. hmmmmm wonder which is which, oh nevermind. number 34 on my list would be "sometimes talks to self"

I didn't like Executive Tammy, so I fired her and became a starving Exercise Science student :)

You should give your husband a lap-dance :)

You are going to have to retire this post because of too many comments!!! (popular girl!)

12:20 PM

I think the people of the interbets have decided that you need to give Michael a lap dance.

I'm sure he won't mind.

OK, the bra one has to be my favorite I think - love that you put it all out there - er, you know what I mean. Those bras are awesome - as is your place here these days!

OH to the VS lovers...Try the IPEX!
I want to be a sexy wife too. I have to get there first then I can stay there.

You must know that Jon is a rabid researcher on the world wide web and probably did a vast amount of in depth study of the VS bras before weighing in with his distinguishing question. He smart man, that Jon.
