X marks the spot

I'm stealing this post from Brittani, mainly because this requires little thought, and my brain is a little frazzled right now. Plus, I've acquired a few new readers in the last few weeks, and this will give you a sneak peek into a little bit more about me.

Instructions: place an X by all the things you've done and remove the X from the ones you have not.

(X) Gone on a blind date : Oh my....I guess it wasn't technically a "blind" date, but close enough: I went out on a date with a guy I barely knew. We sat next to each other once a week for lecture when I was....a junior? in college. HUGE mistake. He was apparently a LOT more into me than I was into him. And he was one of those types that you just can't shake, even though you try every thing in the book to get them to go away... I remember standing in our student union having friends coach me: "Monica, just tell him 'no!' Just say it!" I can easily say that HE is the reason I never after that point accepted a blind date.
( ) Skipped school
(X) Watched someone die : I don't know that it bears repeating in detail, but to satisfy the morbid curiosity that this "yes" response is sure to trigger: it was when I was 19, the first summer I travelled for PCC, after a Tuesday night service, there was a huge accident between a semi and a minivan in front of the church we were at. Nathan (Carter) and I were the first people on the scene....Anyway.
(X) Been to Canada
(X) Been to Mexico : missions trip in 1998. I'm sad that I don't remember where exactly we went...
(X) Been to Florida
(X) Been on a plane
(X) Been lost
(X) Been on the opposite side of the country : Glad I have a reason to go back, too! Hi, McDairmants and Dillons!
(X) Been to Washington, DC : maybe this'll sound un-American, but really? DC isn't my favorite place.
(X) Swam in the ocean : Pacific, Atlantic, and the Gulf of Mexico
(X) Cried yourself to sleep : um, Sunday, anyone?
( ) Played cops and robbers
( ) Recently colored with crayons
( ) Sang Karaoke
(X) Paid for a meal with coins only : that's what vending machine lunches are all about
(X) Done something you told yourself you wouldn't
(X) Made prank phone calls
( ) Laughed until some kind of beverage came out of your nose
(X) Caught a snowflake on your tongue
( ) Danced in the rain
(X) Written a letter to Santa Claus
( ) Been kissed under the mistletoe
(X) Stored money in your undergarments
(X) Watched the sunrise with someone you care about : I was just thinking about this ... I was so hoping for a marriage proposal at the time...and of course, now, I'm glad I didn't get it. The donuts were sufficient. ;)
(X) Blown bubbles
( ) Been skinny dipping outdoors
(X) Gone to the movies
( ) Got a speeding ticket : Not yet, but I'm sure it's coming. I was reminded on the drive home from Nashville on Sunday just how much of a lead foot I actually have. It's so much easier to "go with the flow" when we're "flowing" at 85 mph!
