32 and counting

Today I turn 32. I'm not afraid to say it. What is with people and not wanting others to know how old you are? In honor of being alive for 32 years, I will share 32 random things about myself. Hold your applause until the end.
  1. If I had to choose my last meal on Earth, I'd eat lobster and drink sangria until I passed out.
  2. I never drank coffee until I moved to Rhode Island 5 years ago. Now I can't live without it.
  3. I can never turn my brain off during a massage. I try to think of nothing but it doesn't work.
  4. I like mint and love chocolate. I can't stand the combined taste.
  5. If I were filthy rich, I would have my hair blown dry twice a week.
  6. My favorite color is green and has been since I was 2 years old. Coincidentally it'sNate's favorite color as well.
  7. When I was pregnant with Nate I wanted a girl so bad, but knew from the moment I found out I was pregnant that he was a boy.
  8. I got kicked off of the volleyball team on my 16th birthday and 2 of the girls that got me kicked off had the nerve to show up at my party.
  9. I want so bad to be fashionable, but can't figure it out. I would welcome a "What NOT to Wear" intervention.
  10. I regret only 2 things I have done in my life.
  11. I love high heels, but I only own 3 pair since I can't stand to be uncomfortable.
  12. My first car was a 67 rag top VW bug. Powder blue and pretty. It broke down the day I got it.
  13. I've been in 2 car accidents that could have killed me but I didn't get so much as a scratch.
  14. I've only had 4 different jobs in my life. I've waited tables, worked at a ski resort, was a graduate teaching assistant and my current job at a biopharmaceutical company.
  15. My favorite movie is Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The original.
  16. I am superstitious only when it comes to things involving the number 6.
  17. I have hit 6 Royal Flushes in my life.
  18. I lived in Las Vegas for 4 years while getting my Master's degree.
  19. I lost my mother at 23 years old. I lost half of my heart that day.
  20. My oldest friend and I have been friends for 19 years. 
  21. I hate socks. I would never wear them if my feet didn't get cold.
  22. I love getting any mail that is not bills. A simple card makes my whole week.
  23. I have 4 friends that I know, for sure, would bail me out of jail if I needed it. Make that 3, since at least one of them would probably be with me.
  24.  At my heaviest I weighed 1 pound less than my final pregnancy weight with Nate. I lost 50 pounds by running.
  25. I used to jump rope in the hallway at school when I'd get writers block as I wrote my thesis. I'm so uncoordinated that I had to put all of my focus into keeping going and would forget I was about to pull my hair out.
  26. My name has been written in the snow at the peak of a mountain.
  27. I always see the clock when it is 10:27 (Duh, my birthday).
  28. I always make a wish on 11:11 and honestly believe in it.
  29. I have been to Dennis Rodman's house in New Port Beach. (No idea if he still lives there)
  30. I get the desire to cut my hair off every time my life gets stressful.
  31.  I have always wanted to dye my hair blond, but probably never will.
  32. My favorite place to go by myself is the beach, but I can't stand going with the kids. (Hopefully that change as they get older!)
There you have it! 32 bits of Kameron trivia. And now ya know.


  1. Ha! I LOVE the original Willy Wonka too!!! That is seriously the only movie that I stop and watch if it's own. David says that it's weird and I'm the only one who watches it when it comes on ABC Family every other weekend. I'll have to rub it in face that I am in fact not the only one!

    Loved this post! I hope you had a fabulous 32nd birthday!!!

  2. You are simply fascinating, Kam. Love your list. Creative beyond words. I think 32 will be a fabulous year for you!

    It's funny... I've been thinking of random stuff to share, but didn't have a reason. Maybe I'll steal this idea in April! (yikes, 34!!) Ok, I just wrote 33 and had to erase it. Apparently I'm in denial that I'm 33 already. Ugh.

    I agree with ya on the massage thing. And the desire to be fashionable. How can we be such creative people in other realms, but suck at looking hot?? : ) Well, I'm speaking for myself here... you're pretty dang hot, girl!

    Ok, considering it's past 1am, I guess I'll stop taking up space in your comment section. New carpet being installed tomorrow and I'm still up, clearing out the space!

  3. E read Willy Wonka last year and we gave her the video (remake) for her birthday. She's watched it so many times, she nearly has it memorized.

    So, you probably don't buy your eggs half a dozen at a time...

  4. I love your list! That's awesome!

    I hate SOCKS too! Hate them with a passion! LOL

  5. Happiest Birthday!

    Love those facts about you!

    Except that you missed the part that says you have the ability to make gorgeous clone children! :)

    (And I can't turn off my brain during a massage either... I had them as part of my physical therapy after the accident, and I would sit there and snort and giggle because I was so ticklish... bad?)

  6. Oh Happy Birthday! I love learning random things about people. I could be convinced to share that meal with you - lobster is fabulous!

  7. Lovin' this list! I knew some of these things but it's fun to dig deeper into the all of the quirky and awesome things that make you YOU! And I adore YOU.

    Let's see....we have numbers 4,6,7,9,21,22,30,and 31 in common. Not too shabby...

    P.S. Now I wish I had sent you a birthday card! Boo to me.

  8. Happy Belated Birthday!! That was fun!! =) Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was on last night!

  9. Woo hoo! Yay for 32! I don't know why people don't want their ages known, either. Except I do hide it from my students. If I'm young, they tend to respect me less.

    My daughter was born on 11/11. How 'bout that? Hope it means she'll be lucky.

    And I don't like socks, either.

  10. Love this list! We have so much in common! :-) Thinking of buying lobster for dinner with my parents tomorrow, actually. Yum! Happy Belated Birthday!

  11. Happy belated Birthday, hope it was a great one! 32 is a great age, I think.

    And loved learning more about you...
