Blog Update: The Facts of Me
Linking up with Whitney to share some silly facts about me today. (As if I don't do this on a daily basis). So here goes:
-I love onions and would put them on cake if I could figure out the right way to do it.
-I hate green peppers with a passion but I will eat yellow, red, and orange without thinking about it. The green ones actually make me physically ill. I can't eat anything they have touched. Not even pizza. If there are green peppers in something, chances are I will taste them above everything else and will turn...green.
-I suspect my green pepper hate stems from a tragic well accident I had as a child while eating the offending vegetable. I actually was stuck in a well cap for hours. (Minutes?). Well my foot was anyway. It looked a little like this only the opening was much smaller and my leg was attached to it, of course.
- I have a mad crush on this man....a female crush not a sports crush. I love his broad shoulders. I am a sucker for broad shoulders. I love that he is funny. I love that he is obsessive about his game. This makes him incredibly hot. He is my only blonde and I normally don't go for super skinny guys so he goes against my "type". (What, you were expecting Ryan Gosling? )
-I would eat pizza or ice cream every day if I wouldn't gain weight. I have the appetite of a 12 year old and get stuck in food ruts and will eat them all the time without tiring.
-I love weird vegetables like brussel sprouts and cabbage. I blame my German and Hungarian grandparents.
-If I ever get married, I want to honeymoon at one of two places. Rome or Cooperstown. They are the centers of my two religions so it seems only natural that I would celebrate the "OMG, I Finally found a nice guy" moment of my life there.
-I still believe in Prince Charming. He may look like Dirk...but with brown hair, of course.
-I like being the loud and crazy friend.
-I have a bunch of tapes of baseball and football events from the 1990's. All-Star Games from 1990-1996, the first Opening Day at the Ballpark in Arlington, the First time the Rangers clinched the AL West in 1996 and Super Bowls 27 and 28. Tapes, as in VHS. *Don't ask.
-I would rather go to the mountains than the beach.
-Everything is better if it is Cherry flavored.
-I don't eat beef aside from an occasional hamburger. Steak gives me an upset stomach and I can't stand the way it gets caught in my teeth so if everyone at the table is ordering steak, I am the girl with grilled chicken or talapia. I just prefer chicken to everything else.
-I cry...about everything. I am sometimes shocked I don't walk around completely dehydrated. I may have even been known to tear up at cotton commercials. Yes, I am THAT girl.
-My DVD's may actually be organized based on who stars in them. This takes hours to sort out. Don't laugh at my issues.
-I have a thing about light switches. They must all be going in the right direction before I go to bed or I can't sleep.
-I check the front door to make sure it is locked at least 3 times and I always lock it immediately. The back door, I only check once.
Well, that is enough odd facts about me, I guess. Am I the only crazy one out there?
