Lee wrote a fun post today on random facts and as I too have just a few things on my mind, not quite enough for a full post, I thought I’d do a random post as well, because sometimes, these posts offer the most insight into a person, ya know? So, here we go!
It has occurred to me that as deeply as I know M, one thing I do not know his ‘style’ in. Taste in jewelry. I decided for Christmas that one of the gifts I was going to get him is a cross for his chain as he mentioned in passing a few months ago that he wanted to get. Now that I’ve purchased it, I am *totally* stressing that he won’t like it, but won’t have the heart to tell me he doesn’t like it. Why? Because all he wears is that chain and a watch. Nothing to really compare style to, with that as my base! Of course, I have no basis for knowing whether he will or not, I just don’t KNOW, so I worry. Normal? Weird?
I hate cologne and perfume of any kind. That goes for scented candles and lotions. Except Bath & Body Works Country Apple lotion (and candles. And not even Winter Apple will do, JUST Country Apple, which isn’t even sold in stores anymore, just online. *rude*). ONLY this type of scent does not bother me. I am super sensitive to most perfumes and colognes and suspect I may have a slight allergy to them, as sometimes, I get a metallic taste in my mouth when I am near really pungent scents. However, M’s cologne (Polo Black) does not bother me. *whew*
I had ‘mall bangs’ for far too many years after they were no longer ‘cool.’ Ya know, bangs like this (take your pick, there are some HOT ones here!). Sexxxxy. NOT. Why didn’t I get the memo sooner, I have no idea. Same goes for ‘pegged pants.’ Does anyone even know what that *means* anymore?! Check out that awesome look…seriously, with sneakers, that is just atrocious. I at least wore bitch’ flats from Payless with a black tassle on the front. Yes, I do remember those very vividly! (sisters, do you know what I am talking about?!)
Sometimes I confuse childhood memories and recall a story that happened to me…but it really happened to Jess. And vice versa. And we’ll both swear up and down it happened to me. For example, the pig dream. She knows what I am talking about. And that was so MY dream, not yours. Just sayin’.
I hate scary rides. Rollercoasters, stuff like that. Anytime I’ve been forced to go on them, I get scared, nauseous, and have even been known to cry. If you know what’s good for you, don’t force me onto scary rides. You’ll just get embarrassed at the scene I’ll make. Legit. (I don’t even like the FERRIS WHEEL anymore…it used to seem so relaxing, but the last time I was on one, going over ‘the edge’ and around, I seriously thought I was going to fall off. Heart dropping to stomach feeling. Ick. No thanks.)
I always sling my purse over the chair at my dining room table. I never noticed this before, but Jess pointed this one out. I have no idea why she thinks it is so weird, but apparently I’ve done this at every house or apartment I’ve ever lived in. Not that weird, at least not to me.
I am uber particular about how my work email inbox is organized. By the end of the day, I must not have a scroll bar in my inbox, because that means I have too many open items to take care of the next day (because my email is set up so that only thing that I owe something on or have a deadline attached to it are in my inbox. Everything else that is ‘done’ gets filed). My filing system is a science as well, folders for everything. Scarily organized. But it keeps me sane.
I hate scary movies (sensing a theme here, scary stuff?) and won’t watch them, not even with M. Anytime I do, I get really stressed, tense, and well, scared! What’s the fun in that?! Yet, as M pointed out, I LOVE the show Fringe. Super paranormal and weird, yet I just love it. But will only watch it during daylight hours…or with M (and it can’t be right before bed or I have weird dreams. Yes, I really am 32, not 14).
Speaking of movies, I hate the movie theater and have to be in the mood to watch a ‘thinking’ movie. M always wants to watch some sort of drama or action movie or – his freaking favorite for some reason – ‘The Road’ or ‘Book of Eli’ (for the bazillionth time, I might add!), and I just have to be in the mood for that type of movie to commit to it. And it can’t be halfway through either, if it’s on TV and I haven’t seen it before. I HATE that. M does that to me too (LOL). I prefer comedies and girlie movies that I can sorta zone out to. (as for movie theaters, they are dirty, cold and filled with people I don’t care to watch a movie with! And I can’t have a glass of wine!).
Welp, that’s about as random as you can get for a post, so have at it…BE RANDOM! Tell me something random about you or just have fun making fun of my randomness 😉
Happy weekend friends! I am thrilled for the weekend ahead, filled with equal parts holiday-esque parties and downtime! Cheers!
