Thursday Thirteen: Tidbits about Patrice

1. I was on the UCSB men’s bowling team in college (there was not a women’s team so they had to allow me on the men’s team)

2. I have never eaten a Big Mac

3. I ran a half marathon

4. I went on a bus trip through Europe by myself after college

5. I was on the tennis team in high school

6. The first concert I went to was U2 at the LA Coliseum when I was 14

7. I grew up 4 miles from the beach, but I did not realize how much I love the beach until I moved far from it

8. I got married on the beach in Australia

9. I found out there was no Santa Claus when I was 7 years old

10. When I was a kid I wanted to be a truck driver when I grew up (thanks to BJ and the Bear), then when I got a little older, either an astronaut, chef of my own restaurant, or 2nd baseman for the Dodgers

11. I have a fear of birds of prey

12. I still dream about my childhood best friend and her family even though our friendship ended 20 years ago

13. I have 44 first cousins on my mom’s side, but I would not recognize any of them if they walked by me right now since I have not seen any of them in 23 years

44 cousins, I couldn't imagine that. Congrats on your accomplishments.
I had fun visiting your TT.
Mine is at The Cafe.
Hope you'll drop by.

That's a lot of cousins. Your Mom must have come from a very large family.

Happy TT!

You should find your childhood best friend on facebook or myspace. :)

Congrats on the 1/2 marathon. My husband did a marathon last year and it was an incredible achievement.
