25 Random Things You May Not Know About Me
If I could drive any car in the world it would be the Lexus RX. I’ve had my eye on it ever since I started working a big girl’s job and I feel that I’ve unknowingly cheated because in the meantime I’ve fallen hard for my Jeep.
I love the quiet...and rarely feel the need to have music playing when I’m in the car.
One of my top five, all-time favorite songs is Killing Me Softly by the Fugees and I have no idea why.
I refuse to wear tampons after my best friend unashamedly had to rip one out of me because it was too full and had gotten "stuck." I discovered two things that day: 1) I am indebted to Laura for testing the bond of our friendship to the max and 2) Being poolside in a bikini is not worth the pain!
I am as girlie as they come but when it comes to sex I am 100% man. I require zero frills or forethought. I like it short and sweet and often. [When Ben gets around to reading this in a few weeks he'll be mortified...but in agreement!]
Talking on the phone is one of my least favorite things to do.
I LOVE making lists. Grocery lists, to-do lists, future project lists, when-there's-nothing-to-do lists...I'm so neurotic about it that sometimes if my list isn't neat enough, I'll tear it up and make a new one. Only clean straight lines are allowed when crossing off items on the list and I will add something completed to the list just so I can cross it off. I have a problem really....
I live for Choo Choo's Chocolate dark chocolate turtles.
I love being with me and soak in the time I get to spend alone.
I could spend 5 hours shopping and come home with one pack of socks for Ben and be completely satisfied.
I hate driving in the rain.
Growing up my favorite numbers were always 3 and 5....but 3 lost it's luster, so now I roll with 5. I try to use it as often as I can.
I am a Notory Public and took my oath very seriously...in a mini jean skirt. My first act in office included notorizing my love for Ben...and my closest girlfriends.
I must keep my toenails well manicured because I have this nail fetish that can't be satisfied. I love to peel back the layers and clean out jam....albeit disgusting, it offers me disturbing amounts of satisfaction.
My alter ego is named "Straight Haired Girl" and Ben enjoys his dates with her.
I don't like potato chips of any kind, but have a maddening addiction to T.G.I.F Potato Skins, Sour Cream & Chive flavor. Their existence taunts me with rarity....but when I do find them, I buy every bag on the shelf. [Dan, I seriously blame you for this one.]
I have never heard the alarm clock in the morning. Ever. A marching band could parade through the room and I would continue to sleep.
I have this bizarre habit of spelling words I like, in my head, when I hear them for the first time...You probably shouldn't play Scrabble with me because of it
I only write with blue pens.
Samuel is my favorite person in the Bible and I love that he chose to sleep in the very presence of God...and that his words never fell from his mouth. I strive to be him.
I wish bees didn't exist. They make me nervous.
I don't know how to french braid and will be in serious trouble when I have a little girl.
One of my favorite summer chores is bleaching the garage floor.
At night, my feet need to hang off the end of the bed or I'll never fall asleep.
I love simplicity and try to use it in every area of my life.
There you have it! I tried to think of items that most of you wouldn't know and hopefully, you don't think I'm a complete nut job.
I have been a little lax in the blogging because I've been studying really hard for my GMAT (admission test for Grad school). I'll be back in full swing next week. My next post will be my 100th....and I promise it'll be good!
