Who I am at 40-years-old

Today I am 40-years-old...I was trying to decide what to do for my blog on this landmark birthday when The Zone Blitz ran a blog entry of CNBC's new commercial in which their anchors describe who they are...I liked it...so, at 40-years-old, here is who I am:

I am a passionate person...

I bleed Maize and Blue...and despise scarlet and gray...

I love dogs...

I battled depression and won...

I completed 2 marathons...

I am 40-years-old and still feel young...

Give me a gloomy fall day anytime...

I hate bullshitters...

When I go to work, I feel I can make a difference in people's lives...

It is our duty to help the less fortunate...

I have a caring heart that often gets me hurt...

I enjoy writing...

My dad is my hero...

I love sports...and I love watching sports on my HD television...

Ice cream is the best comfort food...

I took 60 stitches in my forehead when I was 6-years-old after being in a car accident...

I fear flying...

Humiliation is wetting your pants in kindergarten...

I like to make people laugh...life should not be taken too seriously, we are only here for a short time...

I'm warning you now, don't ever cross me...

My mother died when I was 23, but her values still live with me...

Ricky,
I know you well enough to say you described yourself perfectly! I always thought you were a wonderful person. And you're right, don't cross you (are the cracks still in the wall at my old office)? Many more happy, healthy, and prosperous BD's. Sue

A Happy Belated Birthday!!!! Stay as cool as you are! You know the saying..getting older is like fine wine..the older the better, unless it turns to vinegar, and I doubt you ever will turn into vinegar.
You are a sweetheart!!
