5 Things I'm Proud Of (Sort Of)

  1. Won a 99-minute round of Super Smash Bros. (MattyDub and I played only because that's how high the timer went, and we wanted to see if we could do it).

  2. Watched all three Lord of the Rings' movies in one sitting (extended versions).

  3. After a 3.5-day fast, finished an entire El Champion plus chips and salsa. (Though I didn't eat anything else for another 24 hours).

  4. Can play the theme songs of Laputa, Crystalis, and Firefly.

  5. Once out-ate a guy twice my size on a trip to Mexico. I finished his dinner for him too. The next morning, while he was cradling his belly and waving off breakfast, I made a fat burrito and ate it in front of him with a smile.

So that's mine. What lame accomplishments are you proud of?

1. Won a watermelon eating contest against my dad and a bunch of other grown men when I was 14 or 15.
2. Watched the entire run of band of brothers in a 16hr period (Also did the LOTR extended in one go).
3. Bowled a 207 at about 11 p.m. to ice an all day random challenge championship... I don't bowl.
4. As the only American I out-drank 15 Aussies, Brits, Irish, and South Africans and kept pace with 2 others in a century challenge on a beach in Greece (very stupid, but still brings a smile.)
5. Peed for two minutes straight, solid stream and officially timed.
6. Beat my older brother in a martial arts tournament.

Okay, that last one was legit but the others can be included, to varying degrees, in the lame category.

Um, I saw Star Wars 33 times (in the theatre)?

I really can't compete here. :)

One of my sisters tried to enroll me in a 12-step program for my reading addiction a couple of years ago.

I can make an octopus out of balloons.

I can, and often do, out-eat my husband.

I max leveled all my characters and got their ultimate weapons in FF VIII, also, I got all the best cards in that freaking awful card game.

And, uh, I live in one of the best mountain ranges for snow sports and have never been skiing or snowboarding.

I can wrap my ankles behind my neck.

I once abseiled down the side of a building in order to shaving-cream a rival lab group's windows for Hallowe'en.

As a kid, I did the flexed arm hang (i.e. dangle from a bar by your hands with your chin hovering over, but not resting upon, the bar) for over a minute.

1. The last time I was drunk I was 2 years old.
2. In 10 years of marriage, I've had 12 kids.
3. I've never wanted to sleep with any other man besides my husband. (not lame)
4. After a Mexican buffet lunch with Adam and Emmet (who didn't eat dinner that night), I had 2 bowls of ice cream plus dinner.
5. Level 20 on Dr. Mario is a piece of cake for me.
6. In junior high, I was the only girl in the top 10 for track.

1.) I saw Return of the King 8 times in the theater. Not all were my idea.
2.) I often surprise my younger brothers with my vast knowledge of Star Wars lore.
3.) I can quote The Princess Bride from start to finish.
4.) I can bend my thumbs back to form a 90 degree angle.
5.) I gave myself a concussion in high school...running around a corner in slick Mary Janes (the not lame part of that story is that the boy that helped me up off the ground is now the man I am married to).
