Day One - A recent picture of yourself and fifteen interesting facts about yourself
The Hubs and I one month ago in St. Petersburg, Florida.
- I can roll my tongue. Not a huge thing but interesting, nonetheless.
- I can also tie cherry stems into knots with my tongue. Comes back to that being able to roll my tongue thing ;-)
- I'm petrified of armadillos. I mean really, really scared of them. I have this irrational fear that they eat people. I know it's stupid, but I can't get it out of my head.
- I have an irrational pet peeve - I hate it when people phone me and I'm not in a mood to talk. I know they have no idea, but I get really frustrated and agitated with them for calling me. It's really unfair to the unsuspecting caller, but I can't seem to shake the feeling of irritation.
- I'm a Glee freak. I know I've said this before, but I really don't think you can possibly understand how crazy I am about that show! I absolutely love it! I cannot miss it each week. I DVR it even if I watch it. Then I watch it again during the week. I have the first season on DVD and I'm hoping to get the second season for Christmas. I wish I'd had these kids around me when I was in school. I know. I'm pathetic. But I don't care!
- I love puzzles! The Hubs and I are actually currently putting together a 1000 piece puzzle and we have 4 more of equal size waiting when we finish. My co-workers have told me this makes me incredibly boring but that's okay. I'd rather be boring but enjoy what I'm doing than to be interesting but be hating every second of it.
- When I'm alone and I'm cooking - which I love to do, by the way - I sometimes pretend I have my own cooking show. I talk to the non-existent audience and explain what I'm doing. Someday when I make it onto Food Network, I'll be all ready :-D This is really embarassing, so please don't tease me about it!
- I'm really unhappy at my job right now. I've always enjoyed it in the past but lately it's been making me unhappy. I'm kind of stuck there until next April when I finish my degree, so I just have to find a way to make it bearable.
- I have a tendency to stay up very late. Even though I have to be at work at 7am every morning, I'm usually still awake at midnight. I feel tired most days, but I can't seem to get to bed earlier. Something I need to work on.
- Even though I always said that I hated that I looked so much like my dad's side of the family, now that he's gone, I'm secretly glad I look like him. Now, everytime I look in the mirror, I see traces of him and it makes me feel less alone.
- I'm a little worried about our dog, Isabel, when we adopt. She's a very friendly dog when she gets to know people, but when she first meets them, she barks constantly. And she seems fierce, even though she's not so much (at least as long as you're not another animal). I hope she doesn't cause a problem for us with the home study and I hope it's an easy transition for her when we adopt.
- Even though I've lived most of my life in the area The Hubs and I currently live in, I find it difficult sometimes to accept how small-town and red-necky it is. I know that it's just the way people are and that not being that way would not be honest to them, but some of the things they do just make me cringe! I'm not ashamed of where I come from, but I sometimes wish some of the people I deal with daily could tone down the hickness. (And, trust me, I know this makes me sound like a bitch, but it's how I feel.)
- I hardly ever find the "hot" guys on television dating shows good-looking. I usually think they're kind of ugly. I just don't get what's supposedly attractive about them.
- I am addicted to The Maury Show, particularly the "who's the baby-daddy" episodes. It's really sad, but I am totally enraptured by them when they're on. What can I say? Trash television is perfect for rubber-necking!
- Even though I am madly in love with my husband - and, make no doubt about it, The Hubs is my everything and the only reason I keep going a lot of days - I have a teeny, tiny crush on my best guy friend who is not The Hubs. Yup, the one who's leaving the country on Sunday. I'm heartbroken he's leaving. Who'm I going to flirt with, bitch to and joke with now? I mean, apart from The Hubs. J is my outside-of-things sounding board. I have no idea how I'm going to survive without him. Btw, he has NO IDEA I have a teeny, tiny crush on him. However, The Hubs knows all about it. He thinks it's kind of funny but it doesn't bother him because he understands it is what it is. He knows he has nothing to worry about.
So, that's my picture and 15 interesting facts about me! What are your's?
