Happy Birthday to me!

In honor of my 29th birthday here are 29 facts that you might not know about me:
1- I still have 2 baby teeth in my mouth. I dont' have any permenant teeth to replace them.
2- I'm allergic to the skin on apples.
3- I have never, in my entire life, purchased a tomato, an olive or a mushroom.
4- I close as I can remember I have moved about 15 times in my life.
5- I've had surgery to correct a lazy eye.
6- I almost always remember my dreams.
7- The only video games I have ever beaten are Theme Hostpital and Kingdom Hearts.
8- The person I would most like to meet in the whole world is the Dalai Lama.
9- My favorite poem is "Annabelle Lee" by Poe.
10- My secret guilty pleasure is watching Starting Over.
11- I like to take two Double Stuffed Oreos, take one part of the cookie off each and then stick them together to make quadruple stuffed Oreos.
12- My secret wish and ambition is to own a dog sled team and compete in the Alaskan Iditarod. (That's right, I hate the cold and physical activity of almost all kinds and I want to compete in the most challenging slde dog race ever.)
13- I'm still afraid of things hiding under my bed so when I go to bed I try to get in from as far away as possible so that nothing can reach out and grab my ankles.
14- Whenever I go to see a movie I forget what I'm there to see during the previews.
15- I used to have a huge paper doll collection and I sold it at a garage sale (probably for $1). I would kill to have those paper dolls back.
16- I often imagine what it would be like to shave my head.
17- Although I've never been stung I am terrified of bees.
18- I don't own a pair of winter boots.
19- I have a hard time sleeping without socks on, even in the summer.
20- I would like to have 4 more children. All boys.
21- I think Paris Hilton and Bratz dolls are destroying little girls in America.
22- I hate romantic comedies (not including Love Actually).
23- When I was a kid and I had to clean my room I would pretend that I was a maid cleaning the room of a rich kid. I would talk to myself in a British accent.
24- I always drive the speed limit.
25- I believe in ghosts.
26- I think hot chocolate is gross unless it has peppermint schnapps in it.
27- If I could only eat one food for the next year it would be my mom's fettucinni. (Of course I would weigh about 400 pounds at the end of the first year....)
28- Tom Hanks is my favorite actor and Kate Winslet is my favorite actress.
29- If I could have any job in the whole world I would like to be an Imagineer.

So there you go. I feel closer to you somehow now. I have to go though. Jesse remembered it was my birthday (thanks Judy) and brought me home Japanese food for lunch.

Happy Birthday!

I wasn't going to post a comment, because I just did a couple of days ago and I don't want people to think I am some kind of stalker, but... you mentioned Starting Over. I used to be so obsessed with this show, I should have actually gone on Starting Over in order to get over my Starting Over addiction. I miss the days of Andy and Christine and Christine2 and Cassie and crazy Nyanza and non-comedienne non-funny Maureen and OH MY GOD MAKE ME STOP! You see now why I had to stop watching.

Happy Birthday Jenny!
Afraid of bees? Who knew. Bee careful who you give that information to though. Some cruel person might use it to buzz, I mean bug you.
Really though, I remember the day you were born. You're as cute as ever.
Love you,

The Dalai Lama spoke at the Mayo Clinic just the other day. If I knew you dug him I'd have hit him up for an auto-graph.

I don't think the Dalai Lama would give you an autgraph if you hit him.

I don't know that much about the Dalai Lama, but I plan to start calling myself the Bill Storkamp.
