25 Random Things About Me

1. I am truly the MOST unorganized person alive! I couldn’t keep my house tidy to save myself, (without a little supernatural help)

2. For most of my life I never wanted to have children or be a mother and now I am a stay at home mother of 2 wonderful children and it was the BEST decision I ever made!

3. I have inherited what I call the “CookBook Gene” from my Mother and Gran…the ridiculous hobby of sitting around reading recipes in cook books. Recipes I will probably never make, but enjoy imagining…jeesh, no wonder I can’t lose weight.

4. I am inexplicably fluent in Spanish. After taking french for like 9 years in the public school system I can’t remember anything except the french teachers green sweaty armpits. And yet I have picked up the spanish language with considerable ease.

5. I am a vat of useless and trivial information…I retain a lot of things that I read and recall them at a moments notice and tend to have an answer for everything…a trait my husband finds particularly irritating.

6. I once spent 17 hours in the casino playing blackjack.

7. I can’t keep my clothes in drawers, if I can’t see them all out on a shelves, I go crazy.

8. My absolute favourite movies in the whole world are the “Barbie” movies. Rapunzel, Princess and the Pauper, The Nutcracker, Mariposa, Fairytopia and the 12 Dancing Princesses…

9. If I was dying of thirst on a desert island, I would choose Diet Coke or Coffee over water in a split second.

10. I am a compulsive photo-taker….the digital camera was the best invention EVER!!

11. I love the George Lopez show and nearly pee my pants every time I watch it.

12. I drink 12-15 cups of coffee every day (about a full pot and a half).

13. I don’t like to let my daughter play with her new Barbie’s b/c she messes their hair and they always end up looking like Bob Marley.

14. I get a proper haircut about once a year, the rest of the time I trim and layer it myself.

15. I love strawberry baby food and miss my children being small enough that I could by jars without looking weird.

16. I grit my teeth, when I am angry, stressed or hugging kids or dog! I grit them so bad my front teeth are wearing down.

17. I spent nearly a year in Chile, South America (which gives insight into #4) where I met the love of my life, who I later married and have now spent 10 years in wedded bliss…most of the time!

18. Both my childrens names came from television characters…so sad!

19. I think Penelope Lopez, Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep are the most overrated talentless actors in Hollywood, and I don’t care what the Academy thinks!

20. My feet control my body temperature, they have to be free to breath or I feel like I’m suffocating…I wear flip flops from March till November. If I have to wear shoes and socks for too long my whole body gets overheated.

21. I am addicted to Dollar stores, I never leave without having spent at least $20.

22. My dream vacation is a suitcase full of books, pina coladas and a personal massage therapist.

23. I speed read, I can read a Harry Potter size novel in one sitting given the opportunity and believe it or not I actually enjoy and absorb what I have read. I thank my mother for my love of books and reading and hope that my children will appreciate the wonderful feeling of being lost in a book so deeply that they don’t notice the sunset and then rise again before they finish.

24. I love having my hair washed or brushed, and it will put me right to sleep.

25. I have NEVER seen any of the following Pop Culture movies, to the disdain of every movie loving friend I have…All 3 Lord of the Rings, The 3 Prequil Star Wars movies, Pulp Fiction, Rocky Horror Picture Show, Psycho, Jaws, Farenheit 9/11, Monty Python, Texas Chainsaw Massacre…

    You don’t like Johnny Depp’s acting? Haven’t seen Star Wars or Pulp Fiction?
