True or False?

Here are the answers you've all been waiting for...lol.

1). I used to live on a boat.
TRUE- When I was younger (10), we lived in A.rlington, VA. My mom was dating a C.ongressman for over 10 years, but they never got married (this topic really deserves an entire post all on it's own). Towards the end of their relationship, they got into a fight and we moved out of his condo. He had a house boat on the P.otomac River in D.C. called the Y.ellow R.ose. We lived on that for a while before we moved back to Texas.

2). When I was younger, I wanted to be an eye model.
TRUE- I never really thought I was pretty growing up. I was teased as a child because I had big eyes, they called me a "rana" which is spanish for frog. I was also different because I was the only one who didn't have brown eyes in my family. But I learned to like them and thought even though I wasn't "model" pretty, I had pretty eyes. I wanted to be a "contact" model.

3). I was born with perfect teeth.
FALSE-I wish this were true, I could have saved my mom a few thousand dollars. I wore braces for 2y7w3d. They were painful and ugly, but I'm grateful for the smile I have today even if my teeth are slightly off center.

4). I love The G.odfather. I've seen the trilogy at least a dozen times.
FALSE- Monica (A Pregnancy After a Stillbirth) may kill me for this, but I've never seen The G.odfather. Any of them. I own the trilogy, just never seen it. Don't really have a desire to either. I have seen the horse head in the bed part, and where they blow up the car, but that's it.

5). I sucked my thumb til I was 5.
FALSE- I don't know if I ever sucked my thumb, but I did suck my toes ;-) I used to deny this until my mom took a picture of me doing it.

6). I've never gotten a speeding ticket, although I drive like Mario A.ndretti!
FALSE- I have gotten a speeding ticket, but only one and it was a speed trap. So technically it wasn't my fault. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Oh, and I do drive like Mario, but that's a learned habit from a husband who drives race cars for a hobby.
Edited To Add: Please stop by to say hello or send good baby vibes to Becky at Life With Love And Loss. She had to have a TAC (transabdominal cerclage) placed yesterday. The procedure is pretty invasive and can be risky, but she would do anything to save her baby. She will be in the hospital until Sunday, but she is currently doing well. She could use all the prayers and good thoughts she can get, so please make an effort to visit her blog.

Well, hell. Maybe I would have gotten through all the teasing about my big eyes if I had been smart enough to focus on being an eye model! To this day I hate my eyes...kids would make goldfish faces at me on the bus daily. :(

I have also never seen any of the Godfather movies! In fact, there's a HUGE list of movies that "everyone" has seen except for me. I just don't really like to watch movies though. People always trip out when I say "Yeah, I've never seen that one either." Doesn't bother me any.

And, I have also only gotten one speeding ticket, and it was also in a speed trap in the wretched (sp?) state of Minnesota about 4 years ago when I was 28. Not bad. I was pissed. When they pulled me over, I was on the shoulder of the road with 4 other victims. Damn cops!

I got one right! I wanted to be a hand model in high school, a friend commented on my hands/nails once & I thought it was a good idea. Now my hands are always dry & my cuticles look like crap.
