77. I live 10 minutes from my parents. Yet, I would like to move out of state.
78. I was a psychology major going into college. I wanted to study abnormal personalities. I changed my major after my first year because it was impacted.
79. My favorite kind of make-up is Bobbi Brown. Not that I ever wear it. I have a ton of really nice make-up that never gets worn.
80. I refer to Emily Post’s Etiquette, almost weekly. I have friends who call me to ask the golden question, “What is the rule for this XYZ”?
81. I love to give advice. I hate to receive advice. I need to work on this.
82. My favorite shoes are my Birkenstocks. I’ve had about 10 pairs since I was 12. They last a really long time. I’m sad though, because my current broken in pair is missing a mate. I think Angry Toddler did something with my shoe.
83. I hate wearing socks. It’s a good thing that I live in Southern California and it’s not freezing cold all year long.
84. My favorite department store to shop at is Nordstrom. Several of the employees know me there. I don’t know if that’s a good thing.
85. I’ve had two Palm Pilots. I’m back to using a traditional planner. I like to write my dates and notes in there. I had issues with actually charging and using my Palms.
86. My hair is quite short right now. I would love to grow it out long, but I don’t have the patience. I almost considered getting extensions once to take care of the grow out phase, but ended up cutting my hair even shorter.
87. I love taking baths. I haven’t taken a bath at home in over 2 years. Angry Toddler’s bathroom is the only one with a bath tub. The tub is super tiny and not comfortable at all.
88. I don’t like sandwiches. I think alot of it has to deal with my dislike for mayonnaise. Angry Husband suggested getting sandwiches for dinner the other night, and I finally said, you know what? I really don’t like sandwiches.
89. I secretly despise people who live near Sonic Drive-In. I tried it while I was visiting a friend and Texas, and now I’m hooked. Our closest one is over 30 minutes away, and it sucks.
90. I leave out words when I type out or write things. I have to go back and check things several times because of this. Yet, I can easily find grammar mistakes in other people’s documents.
91. I subscribe to several magazines. I love to read about new things.
92. I’m called several different names by different people. My names/nicknames are as follows: Julie, Jules, Hula, and one of my most favorites, ha Mary Sunshine.
93. I like things my way. I need to learn to accept that my husband also has his opinion of things.
94. I hope that my son doesn’t turn out like me, medical wise. I had childhood asthma almost all of my youth. My son had his first attack at 16 months. I don’t want him to spend all his vacations in the hospital doing breathing treatments.
95. I want my son to play organized sports. I’ve already researched when he can start baseball. The kid isn’t even potty trained.
96. My son is in preschool five days a week. It’s not because we need daycare, it’s because I need a break and sometimes he gives me anxiety.
97. It is officially my husband’s birthday. I feel bad for him that his birthday is on Christmas Eve. I’m sure that it sucked when he was younger.
98. I curse like a sailor. I try and behave myself when I’m on the Internet. My mouth is terrible in real life.
99. I love reading people’s blogs. It gives me a little piece of their lives. I enjoy relating to other parent’s and people. I sometimes say out loud he/she is just like me.
100. It took me almost ten days to type this blog post.
101. Merry Christmas Eve!!!! Thanks for Reading Angry Julie Monday!

That is so funny! I hate my neighbors too. I invited the girl over for tea a long time ago (making an effort) she sounded thrilled at first. She calls me back 30 mins later and tell me she wants nothing to do with me or my family. What? Just because we are Italian does not mean we are in the Mafia. GEEZ!

89. I secretly despise people who live near Sonic Drive-In. I tried it while I was visiting a friend and Texas, and now I'm hooked. Our closest one is over 30 minutes away, and it sucks.Snicker.We used to NOT live by Sonic. I knew exactly where the closest one was on my drive back home. I have friends who live in San Fran. No Sonic. They once drove 4 hours to get to one. I think it's north of LA.
