Roller Hockey, Peanut M&Ms, and Magicians

By
Real Estate Services with Applied Real Estate Technology

One, two, three.  Here we go:

I was a cheerleader for a roller hockey team.  Don't ask.  Please.

I rarely remember my dreams, but I nearly always wake up with a song stuck in my head.  Typically, something very annoying. 

I wrote a 9 page analysis on the caloric value of peanut M&Ms, including a sidebar on color distribution per bag.  For fun.  Results?  From the abstract:

The average number of M&Ms per bag was found to be 22.2, with a standard deviation of 1.30.  A confidence interval was calculated to estimate that 68% of all bags of peanut M&Ms will have between 20.9 and 23.5 peanut M&Ms per bag.  Given 250 calories per bag, the average peanut M&M in the average bag would have 11.3 calories.  Using the previous confidence interval, 68% of all M&Ms should fall between 10.6 and 12.0 calories per peanut M&M.

I've performed hip hop routines on stage - wearing a plastic garbage bag as a costume.  Again, please don't ask.  Honestly.

I hate magicians because they always want to put their hands near your ears or face.  No one likes a stranger's hands near their face.

I am convinced that nail polish makes my fingernails feel cooler underneath, and never touch the stuff.

I'm not nearly as crazy as I sound.  I promise.  I've just answered so many of these things there's not a whole lot left to tell you. :)  And thus, I tag no one.

Happy New Year!

Some people are crazy. Just the way it is.

As parent of two travel inline hockey players, I can relate.  But only remotely. 9 pages?  Crazy.

My kids did NARCH finals in Estero/Ft. Meyers, Fl (and state wars, and 2HOT4ICE...) and played teams from the US, Canada, Mexico, France, and Japan. Quite an experience. And yes, we did have a nutrician expert on the team. And a one page handout on meals. No soft drinks, no gatoraide before games, no french fries, etc. And no M&Ms.

And I won't ask about the cheerleader thing....

Kelley - As much as I'm tempted by the word "don't ask," I will not ask.  Sorry to send one of these your way.  Trust me, I know how you feel.  I got three in a row done last night and was feeling bleary eyed by the time I finished.

Hi Kelley...As I just finished a "few" M&M peanuts, I'm especially interested in learning the facts, ma'm.

I would have prefered not learning about the calories.   I had convinced myself that they didn't have any!

Your cheerleader background should have made you exceptionally overqualified to appear on the NAR float in the Rose Bowl Parade.  Too bad NAR did not know about your candicacy in time enough to seize the opportunity.

Happy New Year!

Maureen - I KNOW.  We would've been awesome #narfloatchicks.  Maybe next year, eh?  We'll start campaigning earlier.
