TGIF! I hope you all have had a super Friday! I have a few more things that may make your Friday night even superer (yeah, I just made up that word)! What is in store you ask? Well, how about announcing the winner of my 100th Post Giveaway! Stand by for that, as well as a couple more suprising (maybe) facts about me. Before getting to this, first let me thank you all again for tagging along with me through these 100 posts and beyond. Thanks for all your comments and emails. I've had a really great time reading them and learning more about you, too! I So, let's get on with it then right?!
1. Questionable Taste? I think Kid Rock is sexy..true, in a trailer trash sort of way, but sexy nontheless. He is sort of like Sawyer from LOST. He's the guy you'd like to mess about with, but you'd marry Jack. Although, I guess, he turned out to have issues, too. Maybe not a good analogy. Anyway, there you go.
3. Children. I have a daughter who will turn 22 next month. I know what you are thinking..."wow, you look so young, Angela!" Thanks. People are always suprised when I tell them my daughter is a senior in college. By the way, I have another daughter who started kindergarten this year. Yeah, I may be crazy. I'm proud of them both. I also have two stepdaughters. Proud of them, too.
4. Fashion: I cannot walk in high heels. When I do, I look like a man in drag. I don't think I need to say anything else here.
5. Professions: I see dead people. Literally. I'm sure when you find out my occupation, a lot of things you may have wondered about me, will make sense. I am a homicide detective. This profession is not unlike a lot of things personally about me. By that I mean, double edged. I mean I am grateful for my job and it has given me a lot of good things, but it has also done a lot to make me...well, me. One word that probably best describes me is: "Antithetical." I guess I am an oxymoron. My oldest daughter frequently laughs at me (no, not with me) and tells me she thinks it is funny that I am a Bad As* (her words) who chases bad guys but then interrogates them while wearing a pink cardigan and pearl earrings. When I met my sister in law, she also laughed and told me she thinks of me as "Martha Stewart with a gun." I'm actually okay with this. And as for Alex, she thinks I am cool. For your kid to think you are cool...there really isn't anything cooler.
I've decided that blogging anonymously, as I have for the past 101 posts really isn't fair. It's also not that easy. While I won't tell you where I work, or my last name, I feel revealing what I have in the last few posts is, in the words of Martha, "a good thing."
Okay, enough of the mush! The winner of the giveaway is:
Sheila from Notesongs! Yay!! Congratulations Sheila!
