Random Facts About Me

I used to have a list of 25 Random Facts About Me but I misplaced it and who knows where it is…therefore this is my new list of randomness:

  1. When it comes to music I greatly avoid balads. I would rather listen to a song with great percussion instruments. Take for example: Hummingbird by Alex Clare.
  2. While working at Hobby Lobby people mostly mistook me for an 18 year old…close, by like 10 years.
  3. I have very bad blood circulation on my feet. If I do not wear socks (unless it is very, very hot) my feet turn purple. Ask Tyler, I scared the hell out of him once. He seriously thought my feet had frost bite…in the middle of summer.
  4. I cannot eat a Reese’s Cup without gagging; same with PB&Js. For some odd reason I find it quite gross, but I do like peanut butter.
  5. I am not shy of my age. Ask me and I will shout it at the top of my lungs. Alright, I promise not to yell in your ear, but I would gladly oblige.
  6. I love every single one of my gray hairs! Finding a new one makes me happy (I think I now have about 8) and I get very upset when one falls off. I have actually contemplated letting my hair be and let it all turn white/gray. I guess this is because I loved my late paternal grandma’s hair which was completely white by the age of 30. She was beautiful (miss you Grandma!).
  7. I have a thing for British actors. They have that je ne sais quois; i.e., Luke Evans (Welsh), Daniel Craig, Ewan McGregor (Scottish, but still counts, right?), Jude Law.Random Facts About Me - British Actors
  8. I can twist my tongue like a taco! But that is the fanciest tongue trick I can do…boring, I know.
  9. I hate clowns thanks to the movie/show “It”. Seriously creeped the hell our of me and can’t be near a clown doesn’t matter how friendly they may seem.
  10. My favorite song changes every week. I can listen to it over and over without tiring of it. I will either whisper the lyrics or lip-sync.
  11. I clean when I am mad or extremely upset.
  12. I have always wondered if the extras in the background of movie or show scenes are actually following a script or just saying random things.
  13. I’ve been told I look like Anne Hathaway and Nancy Kerrigan.
  14. I do not like seafood. The only sea creatures I like are shrimp and fish (only fillets though, having to stare at and then eat a whole fish makes me loose my appetite).
  15. I took 3 years of French but never once did I ask if I could go to the ladies room. Pronouncing toilette was impossible. And I still can’t figure out if I am mexicaine or mexicain. So…oui.
  16. I used to bite my nails. Now I only bite the skin around them when I am feeling anxious.
  17. I am afraid of embarrassing myself in front of others.
  18. I have never eaten brussel sprouts. In fact, I have never seen brussel sprouts in person, only in pictures.
  19. I often dream of falling down my late grandma’s stairs. The fall seems to never end and I always wake up when I am about to crash. I literally jump and then awake…strangest and most awful feeling ever.
  20. I would love to have an Utonagan puppy! They resemble a wolf, but in fact are a mix of three breeds of domestic dog: Alaskan Malamute, German Shepherd, and Siberian Husky. And they are also British!! Go figure! 😉
