LIVE. LAUGH. LOVE. EAT… and DRINK CHAMPAGNE

Hi,

       I am Connie. It’s a pleasure to meet you.

       I am a contradictory mix of silly and serious. Interested in all things, intellectual, spiritual, cultural,  terrestrial or from another dimension …and because I am a human being and I am a big child most of the time I can get easily distracted by beautiful love stories, someone’s smile, shiny things or a warm hug.

       I love reading those Random Things About Me notes on the Internet (because let’s face it, we’re all mega nosy!) even if I didn’t really know the person. So, here’s a list of 100 and something random facts about me and I hope this will give you a bit more insight into me and my life.

  132. I stopped caring what people thought about me some time between three and six years ago. It’s been pretty great ever since.
  133. I hate to say I hate something, but, well, I really hate it when people say unnecessary mean things against others and mean it…especially when that happens to me. I don’t get that kind of mentality of intentionally hurting someone.  It’s cruel and I immediately think, karma dude, karma.
