7 Random Thoughts About Me

I got a blog award! Thanks FatSoSarah!

I've never gotten one of these before, so I'm going off of what she did, and it looks like I need to say 7 interesting things about myself, so here it goes!

1.) I never, ever wear matching socks. I buy them in packs of what feels like 500 from Costco, and I figure someday when I'm 92 years old, and look back on my life, I won't miss the percentage of time I would've spent matching socks. So I don't. Ever.

2.) I play a dirty blues piano. I'm not sure how really, I sat down at a piano one day and it was just perfect, almost like a secret language I didn't know I could speak. I have a keyboard now (a particularily nice one that cost most of my savings a few years ago) but since it has a spot for headphones I can play it at 4 in the morning when I can't sleep. Ha and I can't sleep a lot.

3.) I hate pecan pie and it drives me freakin' nuts. Theoretically I should like it. I've gone over the ingredient list a million times and it makes no sense for me to hate it. I try it every year at Thanksgiving, and sure enough I end up running to the bathroom to spit it out. Even the smell of it baking in the oven makes me gag. I swear I'm going to beat this one day. I am determined to like pecan pie.

4.) I'm incredibly sporadic, probably to a fault. One of my biggest dreams is to travel the world, and I'm starting this summer, though I don't know where I'm going yet. (The post Stupid and Crazy explains those plans...or I guess I should say it explains my lack of plans...) I'm deciding based on the poll on the right. So please vote on the best place to send me!

5.) I lose everything. My keys, my phone, my homework...if it's not tied down, I'll lose it. As of this moment I haven't seen my debit card or driver's license in almost 3 weeks, but I know they're somewhere in the house and there hasn't been any funny business with my bank account, so I just keep looking, hoping they'll turn up.

6.) I consider myself extremely well prepared for a zombie invasion. If your neighbor becomes a zombie tomorrow, shoot me an email. I've got you covered.

7.) I consider my boyfriend to be the sweetest, funniest person I've ever met. If I'm having a bad day he'll pull his pants up super high, slide his glasses down to the tip of his nose and walk around pretending to be a 100 year old man trying to catch one of our cats. He puts my name is random song paradies, and he'll drive to the store to buy me brownie mix at 2 in the morning. In the last 3 and 1/2 years I've never been happier. I'm absolutely, 100% pathetically in love with him.

Now it looks like I'm supposed to give this award to two awesome bloggers, so here they are:

So tell me, what are some of your favorite quirks about yourself?


  1. What a cute list! Love it.

    Thanks for linking up at Mom Blog Monday! I am now following you back!

  2. Hi. Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm following ya back from the Monday hop!

    Have a great week :)

  3. Congrats!!! I have to laugh at your Pecan Pie hatred. That is one of my favorites.

  4. I'm super sad you don't like Pecan Pie. I didn't when I was growing up, but over the past few years, I've become obsessed. Try the ones from Publix, they are delicious!

  5. I love the fact that if I get really angry or I am super excited, my southern accent comes on strong even though most of the time you can't hear it anymore :). Wanted to thank you for joining the Alexa hop this week :)


  6. Congratulations on the award! Stopping by from the Alexa hop. I'm your newest follower, too.

  7. Following you back from your following me ;)

    Between you and me I NEVER match the socks in my household . I buy socks that look similar in nature for myself so I dont have to match LOL.
    My girls never match on purpose so that helps AND the husband sometimes yells at 645 am "WHERE ARE A PAIR OF BLACK SOCKS CAUSE I GOTTA MATCH FOR MY CORPORATE JOB DAMMIT" lol
    so yeah his socks get matched but the rest of the house.. nah ;) More power to the non sock matchers I say!

  8. haha don't you just LOVE having mismatched socks?! it's awesome. oh, and neon socks too. they brighten up my day :]
    point 5: oh my, that sounds like me. except i don't have my license ;P
    awww i'm so happy for you and your boyfriend, you two sound so sweet together :)

    following you, hope you'll follow me back ! :D

  11. Love the socks! You know I ever even THOUGHT not to match them? :)

  13. Congratulations on your win! And thanks for dropping by my blog.

    I used to lose my keys all the time too, but then I got so fed up with the stress that caused I changed my ways! Now I put my keys on a nail when I enter the house, and that works!

    Other quirks? Ehm.. I love eating mars bars at night…

  15. How fun. Great list!

    Stopping by from the Tuesday Hop to say hello.
    Join me for Deal Seeking Tuesday!
    Have a great day!

  16. Congrats on the award...and thanks for following along at Finger Click Saver. I am already a follower of your's. Matching of my pet peeves, but I have a compulsion to do it. Drives me nuts if my socks don't match. My daughter...she's 13 and tells me it's the going thing at school...whatever...but I still hate not having matching pairs when I do her laundry!

  17. Found you from the FTLOB blog hop! I'm a fan of your 7 facts and can completely relate to a couple of them, I just this week lost my wallet and have had to replace everything, and last week I lost my keys! Oops. Additionally, I also consider myself extremely well-prepared for any impending zombie attack. It's always good to know where zombie-fighting allies are...! :)
