Narcissistic meme

I saw this meme over at Kim's, I think. All you have to do is list random things about yourself, so here I go. It's all about me, Me, ME!
Update: I must be more of a narcissist than I thought - just realized I was supposed to list only 7 things...

1. I love rain, and the misty cool freshness it brings.
2. I'm loony about the moon, and I've passed this obsession on to my son.
3. Give me a phone, Internet access, and a credit card with no limit, and I'd probably never leave the house again.
4. I no longer keep a credit card.
5. At 5' 10", I'm the shortest in my family. My brother is the tallest at 6' 6".
6. My shoe size is 9 1/2, and everyone in the family admires my 'little' feet. That's because they all wear 12s, 13s and 14s.
7. I hate that I didn't inherit my mothers hazel-grey eyes that turn green when she is really angry.
8. My ex-husband insists that my legs were what caught him. :)
9. My oldest writing dream is - [drumroll] - an assignment for National Geographic Magazine!
10. For most of my life I thought money wasn't important. Not having any cured me of that folly.
11. Every bit of trauma and anguish I've suffered in this life has been on account of males. I sometimes wish I were lesbian, but women just don't do it for me. In spite of all, I love men. Kind ones. Sexy ones. Good-hearted ones. Cute ones...
12. That said, my female friends, and I include my mom and sis among them, are the people I value most. They are the true soldiers, the ones who are there no matter what, and who never let me down. I suppose I can live without men, but I don't know how I'd cope without the friendship, support and empathy of the women in my life.
13. I'm not into nationalism, but I'm patriotic about the planet.
14. I love blogging. I love the new people I've met, the things I've learned, the expanded awareness of individuals and communities who are passionate about the things I love. Books! Language! Life!

I really enjoyed reading your randoms. Your tall family sound so interesting, especially your mum with her changeable eye-colour!

We share the same feelings for men and women, but my feet are a 10.

These are great. So glad to see you back.

Okay, you're the same height as my daughters and an inch taller than my mother, but two inches shorter than my wife.

Wonderful bits of personal trivia.

Agree with you about the internet and blogging. (Thing that bugs me about that little map thingee you got me interested in: Some days it will show me dozens of people visited my journal, but none of them commented on what they read.)

And sorry about the rest of my gender. Can't think what got into them.

Glad you enjoyed these, pj, matt, anti-wife and kim.

Kevin, you've got some tall girls there, man! Your wife must be like my mom and sis - statuesque! (As well as beautiful...)

I think the general ratio of comments to visits must be something like 1:50 at times. I used to frequent a blog (Miss Snark's) that averaged 3000 hits a day, but the comments averaged about 60 or thereabouts, often less.

And don't apologize for the bozos out there masquerading as men. I that you (and others I know) are nothing like them. Thank goodness.
