12 utterly useless facts about me Friday.

This is a blatant rip-off of Ali’s post today – it made me laugh so hard, I just had to write one myself πŸ˜‰ Some random and utterly useless facts about me on this fine FEF!

I seriously KEEP watching this video and laugh hysterically EVERY time. I first saw it at the gym yesterday and laughed like a fool while on the ‘mill (speed walking, mind you, not running, even though I wanted to!!), then again with M, as I showed him after the gym, then re-laughed at it IMing portions of it back and forth with Jess, and then AGAIN laughed at it with M as we were drifting off to sleep.

On that note, ever start laughing at something completely ridiculous and not even that funny, yet you find it utterly hilarious and can’t even stop laughing to explain why you are laughing? Happens to me far too often. Bonus points if it happens with my sisters, and we each know what we are laughing at by our facial gestures and guffaw and arm motions, but can’t spit the words out. Sister intuition πŸ˜‰

I HATE when the sheets aren’t tucked in on the bed. Don’t even get me started if the bottom of the sheets and comforter slide off the bed in any form or fashion. I will get up at 2 am and retuck the sheets. (before M and I moved in together, his bed was always a shitshow and I literally had to make his bed before I could sleep in it. LOL)

I hate when people whistle.Β M whistles and it is one thing that irritates me. Yet he’s actually a really good whistler. Nice and strong. LOL. But I still hate it.

I hate when I can’t type for sh*t. Like, every third word is mispelled because I am typing too fast, or the words are typed with random spaces, lik ethis. OMG it drives me batty, yet I can’t stop myself from typing slowe rso it doesn’t happe nagain. Gah! πŸ˜‰

I LOVE using QTips. It feels so good. Yes, I’m weird. And yes I know I’m not supposed to clean my ears with them. But, pray tell, what ARE you supposed to use them for, then??

I also love rubbing my eyes. But can only do that when my contacts are out, and then, game on, I can rub my eyes for a solid 5 minutes and it feels *almost* as good as using QTips.

I can’t swim. But we kinda knew this already.

I have a cleaning ritual. I clean our apartment top to bottom once a week (with mini cleanings throughout the week, of course). I ALWAYS start and end the same way. I can’t start in the middle, and I can’t skip a step, except juuuust one. Wrapping the chord around the vacuum when I am done (I know I have mentioned this before!). I abhor it. Almost always time it so M is still home and he can do it for me, or else I do it begrudgingly. Because Lord knows I couldn’t LEAVE the vacuum out all day.

I hate when my work email has a scroll bar. I file my emails as soon as I am done with whatever task is in said email. When I have a scrollbar, I have FAR too many things to do, and my goal each week is to shut down my computer with *no* scrollbar in my email. Yes, this is extremely type A.

I HATE lingering food smells. As in, the failed attempt at crab bisque M made last night that stunk up our apartment and lingered all night and this morning until aforementioned cleaning ritual commenced. Drives me absolutely bonkers. Who wants to wake up in the middle of the night and smell…crab? Gag. I legit tell M not to make fish when I am not home because he never turns the fan on to ventilate if I am not home πŸ˜‰ #obsessmuch

I love house hunting…and it reminds me of the game the Sims. Just me? No? LOL. But truly, I do love looking at houses and dreaming up how it would look if I lived there. And – nice segue – M and I are looking at houses this weekend! I am sooooooo excited. We truly can’t move till at least June, with our lease, but it never hurts to start a smidge early, right?! πŸ˜‰

So what about you…anything random you feel like sharing? I’m looking forward to a fantastic weekend, filled with house hunting, a night out with a hot man (it’s M, just so we’re clear – LOL), Sunday Funday AND teaching my very first barre n9ne intensive (1 hr 15 mins of pure sweatastic awesomeness!!!). Happy weekend friends!!

  1. Um. I needed this. REALLY REALLY badly today. I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I ‘guffawed’ (um, who uses this word?? juuust my sister, that’s who) at this post. Particularly the eye rub one, LOL. And the vacuum cord — I mean, I’m as Type A as they come but even I’d just roll it back up and put it away without whining about it LOL

  2. HAHA! Awesome I love reading random facts like this! I also hate not having the sheets tucked in and The Boy LOVES them un-tucked (so strange) I grew up with tucked in all the way πŸ™‚ Also, I can’t whistle so you’d probably really like hanging out with me hehe

    1. It was fun to write! I love reading them too! Sheet tuckage is SUCH a finicky thing isn’t it? Everyone has a preference! I’d love to hang with you!

  3. I LOVE cleaning my ears with qtips and watching house hunters!! So jealous that you guys actually get to look at houses this weekend πŸ™‚ that’ll be so much fun for you!!

  4. I could have written this!! well, except for the whistling – Jason whistles too, and I LOVE it – well, I love how happy it is – Jason is such a positive person and when I hear him whistling I am reminded how lucky I am to be with such a smiling happy positive guy.

    oh and the sheets – I am the opposite. I make the bed each day, and if I tuck in (most times I do not!), I have to untuck before I even get in… my feet MUST be able to get out!

    the rest though – I cannot swim. yeah.

    I loved house hunting – AND I love the sims!! I was SO addicted to the original game for a while…

    1. See, that’s the thing. I love that M whistles because he IS happy when he whistles, much like Jason. The act of whistling just annoys me, for no good reason. Maybe I’ll embrace it more, since you bring up such a good point! Thank you for that πŸ™‚

      Sims!! I was hugely addicted too! as for sheets, I HATE my feet being uncovered in bed. I literally cannot sleep if that happens.

  5. OMG this post is hilarious. Huh, you really are Type A, huh? πŸ˜‰
    The sheet thing kills me because I could care less but it drives my husband crazy when the bed isn’t properly made before getting into bed. I LOVE Q-tips too. Really do.

    1. I am indeed type A πŸ˜‰ Shocker, right? I think it’s funny that it drives your husband crazy when the bed isn’t made before getting in!

  6. I am the total opposite when it comes to sheets. I have to have them untucked or I feel too constricted. But, I am the same with typing. I guess I try to type too fast.

    1. I always type too fast. So interesting – half of people responding here said they like untucked, half like tucked. guess it’s a ‘thing’ huh?

  7. I love wrapping the vacuum cord. Weird.

    Qtips and eye rubbing FTW! And congrats on the house hunting! Very exciting!

    Oh and speaking of something ridiculous that makes me laugh, and Qtips… this commercial cracks me the hell up. Even GJ will text me certain quotes from it and I will LOL!

    I’m giggling just thinking about it.

  8. I agree with almost all of these! Too funny. Love cleaning my ears and rubbing my eyes after taking my contacts out. πŸ™‚ Oh…and I can’t stand whistling either. Our clients were laughing at me when the whistle song was on the radio all the time because they know how much I hate whistling. πŸ˜‰

  9. UGH, the sheets drive me crazy! Tony and I have been together 17 years and married almost 18. I like the sheets tucked, he does not. The problem here is the the covers fall over to my side and suffocate me! Drives me CRAZY! I’m a q’tip lover too. Why does it feel so good? I hope you had a great weekend!

    1. Yes, the sheets will suffocate me too, because M does the same thing! Qtips feel good, I don’t know why, but they were an amazing invention!

  10. LOL!!!!! Oh my God.

    An ex-boyfriend from in college called me “Qtip” for the exact same reason I go through 4-5 of them every time I shower. Not only do I hate wet ears, but I LOVE the feeling. Tee hee hee.

    I’m a shower eye-rubber. πŸ™‚

    I’m a whistler. I whistle when I clean and when I cook. I come by it honestly, because my grandmother (the one with Alzheimer’s) does it while cleaning and cooking, and I always loved that about her. It made me giggle. You always knew what she was up to by her whistles. Unfortunately, she only whistles once in a while now. 😦

    I only like lingering food smells if it’s sweet, baked goods. lol Otherwise, I’m with you.

    And we’ve already discussed the vacuum before. I’m the exact same way. lol

    1. 4-5 QTips? THAT is awesome!! hahaha. Shower eye rubber – I def do that too, but only if I shower without contacts in πŸ˜‰ And you are so right, lingering food smell is a-ok if it’s brownies or cookies…just not…crab, bacon, scallops. Ick! I love that memory of your gram…((hug))

      1. It was hard finding a house in the specific neighborhood we wanted and in our price range, so patience and praying were key! But yes, I am sure it will not take you as long. πŸ™‚
