25 Things

25 Jan

Per request, here are 25 unique things you may not know about me:

1. It took me 312 licks to get to the tootsie roll center of a tootsie pop.

2. I can list all the presidents.

3. I need to go on trips to far away places in order to stay sane.

4. There are life-size cardboard hobbits in my basement that I can’t bear to throw away.

5. I’ve always thought I would make a great detective because I’m good at research and looking below the surface to find information without getting caught. My friends suggest that maybe I’m just extremely nosey.

6. I have kissed a Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Interestingly, not one of them believed in god.

7. When I’m bored at work I memorize the Periodic Table of Human Cytokines & Chemokines that hangs next to me.

8. I once had an intense fight with my ex boyfriend that resulted in me farting on his cat. It lightened the mood (I never said I was classy).

9.  My favorite food is boneless buffalo wings.

10. I scream the entire time I’m riding a jet ski.

11. I just started taking keyboard lessons.

12. One of my favorite childhood memories is of my family in the car on our way to Ocean City and my dad and brother are singing/screaming Whitney Houston’s I’ll Always Love You at the top of their lungs.

13.  I can sing every word from every song in Mary Poppins and The Little Mermaid.

14. One time, on my way into work, I saw a man on the side of the road yelling, “Peanuts, get your peeeeaaanuts here” but he wasn’t holding anything.

15. Every morning, my iGoogle page greets me with a picture of the daily puppy and a place to see. The daily puppy today is a Bernese Mountain Dog and the place to see is Bora Bora, French Polynesia.

16. I pretend not to be competitive. I don’t like when that side of me comes out because that gal is a vicious poor sport.

17. I love watching grown-ass men eat ice cream cones.

18. I went to Catholic school for 15 years.

19. I like driving at night because people are less likely to see me singing.

20. I was in a meatball-eating contest. I ate 7 meatballs and felt so sick that I didn’t eat them again for an entire year.

21. I love laughing so hard that I cry and grasp for breath.

22. If given the chance, I would move back to London in a heartbeat.

23. I love the way guys tell stories with sound effects just like they did when they were kids.

24. I hate crafts and craft fairs. I don’t want to make a wreath. I have no patience for glue, sequins, beads, thread, popsicle sticks, paints, embossing etc…

25. Disney movies really did give me unrealistic expectations about hair (among other things).

Thoughts from a drunk girl

13 Oct

A number of people have told me that I am very profound when I drink. I decided to write what I’m thinking/saying over a couple of drinking sessions to see if I could come up with answers to some of life’s biggest questions. It didn’t happen, at least not yet:

1. Hugging really is kind of funny when you think of it as a strangle you haven’t finished yet.

2. Is there a god? If so, I wonder if he reads my blog. If he does, he probably shakes his head a lot.

3. I am lying on my bathroom floor. I’m topless. My puppy is sitting at my head and I’m wondering, does he know I drank too much? Is he judging me? I wish he knew how to get me some Taco Bell. Or just a snack. I just asked him to get the snack and he’s just staring at me.

4. How many licks to the center of a tootsie roll tootsie pop? They say the world may never know, but I do know–it’s 314. I have the certificate to prove it.

5. If I could go back in time, I’d have a serious make out session with Potsie from Happy Days. He’s so dreamy.

6. Why won’t anyone in this hot tub harmonize with me? Dina harmonizes with me. I wish she was here in this hot tub. Hot Tub Harmonies–our new singing group.

7. Guys, I have a good idea. What if we take pictures of our breasts (clothed) in different spots so you can see a chest to the side and like….my science lab in the background? Boobs in the Workplace: An Exploration. OR how about boobs in the front, and beautiful scenery in the background? Except we would be wearing clothes. Boobs around the world, but clothed. A calendar. Think about it.

8. I want Dwayne Wayne glasses. I actually want to be him for Halloween, but I understand that wouldn’t be very easy, so I will settle for the glasses.
