I'm not slim and trim, I'm 5'8 and 1/2 (I'm shrinking) I'm a proud Libertarian, I can't stand cow mucus, I've been drunk many times lol, I don't go to church, bananas are just ok, my dinner consist of some of what you wrote, I believe in witches lol, I'm not reading a book, I only get the newspaper for coupons lol, I know quite a few people whom have been in trouble with the law, RECYCLE RECYCLE RECYCLE!, I probably do take more showers than anyone else and I'm obsessed with lotion lol I do have brown hair, blue eyes and ironically my family comes from Germany on both sides. lol Anyhow, I could go on and on. Again, I'm so glad I'm not the typical American. lol How do you fare? Hope you're having a good Tuesday and keeping warm. It's COLD out there!! Hugs

  2. Hi Annie, I had to laugh at this because I am not the typical American woman either. I am 5 foot, brown hair and eyes. I am college educated and had a well paying clerical job until I retired. We have a 4 bedroom home in the city. The church things are correct since I am a Christian. I do not smoke or drink beer . A glass of wine on occasion, but just a few sips since I am to sensitive. I have a cousin that has aids. I don't believe in the occult, and I know there is a devil. I drink low fat milk and diet soda and love broccoli along with the rest of my family. I have never been in trouble with the law. My roots are traced to Mexico and Spain. My grandma and mom both had green eye and were fair skinned. My grandma had 2 brothers with red hair and blue eyes. There are Mexicans of German heritage, they immigrated during the wars. I am fearfully and wonderfully made, a unique being created by my God. :)

    P.S. I did my traditions meme.
