25 Random facts about me

So I have been tagged multiple time with this on facebook. So I thought I would post it here instead….just to be difficult.

1.) I have a horrible water phobia. I don’t even enjoy showering, swimming or aquatic life. The only way I want to see a fish is on my plate with lemon and butter.

2.) My favorite color is Orange. I really love orange. It makes me happy.

3.) I like to pretend I am taller then I really am. It was easier to pull off when I wore heels all the time but lately I have been lazy and rocking the tennis shoes or snow boots. That makes it a lot more obviously I am lying about being 5’2. I didn’t get any taller after middle school.

4.) Where I come from we like our tractors green and our chicken fried. And I can fry one heck of a mean chicken.

5.) I was never taught the domestic arts such as cooking and cleaning. My mother was a bar maid and a drunk so those were not high on her list of priorities. However I can bake like it ain’t nobodies business…the cleaning…uhh not so much.

6.) I never took typing in high school (I was supposed to but got a free pass b/c of band) it was never a problem until now. I have a job where I type all the time but I can not type “properly” I am however a “super fast pecker” (that was for you Christin) I am thinking I should learn to type properly.

7.) Jello is my favorite food

8.) I am not the most fun person to go to the movies with. I tend to talk and comment a lot. I also can not watch anything scary, suspenseful, violent, gory, sad, too mushy/romantic, or that involves water, ice or space.

9.) I tend to text message from the bathroom at work so I don’t get bored.

10.) When I finally get around to giving birth I will be doing it at my own home with a midwife. I also plan to start baking cookies when my water breaks and inviting all my friends over for a party to celebrate the birth. Please do not attempt to convince me this is not a good idea.

11.) I still think farting is hilarious. I know this makes me immature.

12.) I am addicted to fabric and have a very strange relationship with it. If I love a particular fabric a whole lot then I am unable to use it until I have acquired at least 6 yards of it. I don’t know why it has to be 6 yards or why I am such a freak.

13.) I WILL NOT EVER eat stove top stuffing

14.) For the first time in my life I have a job that does not validate me or inflate my ego. I find it very humbling.

15.) I am a little concerned b/c I think I might know more about Harry Potter then I do the Bible. I should try to fix that. I love them both very much.

16.) I used to dress up as Professor Sprout for the midnight book releases of Harry Potter.

17.) Michael and I used to participate with the SCA when we lived in Michigan. We did medieval reenactment and loved it.

18.) My father has a mail order bride from the Philippines. His wife and I are the same age. I had always hoped he would spend his life lonely and miserable but I let go of that hate awhile ago.

19.) I am considering getting Michael a dog for his birthday but I am sort of worried I will come home from work one day and he will have rescued an entire menagerie from the pound.

20.) Most people are a little taken aback by the fact that I am a christian and I love the movie Dogma. I am annoyed by their shock.

 21.) I collect the fortunes from fortune cookies. I am saving them for an art project.

22.) I know that we are created in God’s image and all beautiful in His sight but….I only think I am pretty when I am all “dolled up”. I feel kind of guilty that make up makes me feel more confident.

23.) I am always cold. Probably due to anemia but I try not to complain since I had a lot of blood related issues as a child so I am grateful all I have to deal with now it a bit of anemia.

24.) My mother gave me to my father’s sister when I was 11. She was a drunk and could not longer stay sober enough to take care of me. She died a year later. I do not miss my mother but I do miss having a mother.

25.) I take customer service very seriously. I hate it when people in service postions are rude. I am almost always nice and cheerful to my client….even if I don’t always feel that way on the inside.
