25 Things

Since everyone and their brother in the blogworld has already done this, I figured that I would join in....

I'm trying to make these new, but I'm probably going to tell you some things you already know.

1) I get super weird and intense leg cramps. All. the. time. Even if I hydrate.... and take potassium. I still get them in the middle of the night. I have forever. They aren't normal..... they require me to fall back asleep in the strangest positions ever to get them to go away.

2) The idea of backpacking through Europe holds no appeal to me. I want suitcases. And, hotels. Without random strangers as my roommates.

3) One time in college, I totally skipped class for the day to audition to be a guest co-host on Live with Regis and Kelly. I didn't make it past the first round, but it was fun to try.

4) Speaking of auditioning, when I reach my goal weight, I want to audition to be a Rockette. No, seriously. I have always wanted to be one. They usually have auditions within driving distance of me, each year. Keep in mind, I have no illusions that I'll actually be cast. I just want to try, just so I can say I did.

5) I've read the Fifty Shades series and loved it. In fact, I read Darker and Freed twice. For all the talk of blushing while reading and having to put the books down, I never once did either. Maybe I'm smuttier than I thought.

6) I am left-handed, but do not ask me to use left-handed scissors. I can't cut with them. The way the blades meet is different than the way right-handed scissors meet and after being forced to use RHS for so long, I can't cut straight on a line with LHS.

7) My whole life I have always dreamed of having a little girl with curly hair. However, with my ridiculously stick straight hair, I probably should marry Ben Savage.

8) I *love* pineapples, pears, and watermelon. I could eat them every day.

9) My Ninny and my mom's sneezes will scare you to death. My mom didn't always sneeze like that and I fear that as I get older, my sneezes will become scary, too.

10) Full House was my absolute favorite TV show growing up. I've seen every episode at least a half dozen times. I still kind of wish I was friends with DJ Tanner.

11) I didn't travel via plane with an adult until I was 17 years old and a senior in high school. Before that, an trips to visit my Ninny in Alabama or my family in Colorado every summer were solo. As a result, I really am not a fan of travelling with my family on a plane. It is usually more dramatic than it needs to be. Pretty much, we get to the airport and I tell them I will meet them at the gate.

12) Thunderstorms are my favorite. And, heat lightening. They are both reasons I look forward to summer.

13) I know nothing about cars by choice. I am smart enough to learn about them. I just really don't care. As long as it works, I'm cool. If it doesn't, then I will gladly depend on someone who has taken the time to learn about them to fix it for me.

14) Chemistry alluded me in school. I could dissect an entire cat and take AP Calculus, but basic Chemistry made absolutely no sense to me.

15) Sportscasters are the equivalent of nails on chalkboard to me. They talk way too loud.

16) Ironically, actual nails on chalkboard don't bother me.

17) Scarlett Johannson irks me. Like, I know men think she's the epitome of sexy, but I don't understand why. A lot of times, she looks constipated to me. And, she always plays a confused slut.

18) The theme music for So You Think You Can Dance and Big Brother actually makes me smile. Every time I hear them.

19) I am always dumbfounded when restaurants are out of a major item. I never know what to say. One time, I went to Arby's and they were out of roast beef. Another time, Pizza Hut was out of all their crusts, except for Thin n Crispy. How does that happen?

20) The fun braids that are popular right now just make me wish I had the talent to braid my hair. Especially the pretty "headband braids." I try to do that with my hair, but it just doesn't work. I need a hairstylist to do my hair everyday.

21) When I sleep at night, it has to be on my side or back. I can't sleep on my stomach. However, when I take a nap, I prefer sleeping on my stomach. Go figure.

22) I'm super sarcastic. My cousin and I will make ourselves laugh until we cry with our sarcasm. Except, apparently I have an innocent face and a convincing tone, because very few people ever know that I'm being sarcastic. They don't pick up on it, at all.

23) There are some songs that pull such emotion out of me, it's embarrassing. Whether it's happy, sad, inspired, or whatever... I just feel it in all my bones and heart. If you add that song to great montage and I'm a goner. Really, it is ridiculous.

24) I'm seriously jealous of people with great butts. I have none. It's basically like one long back.

25) I kind of wish that Jesse Tyler Ferguson would have his own talk show. I adore him.

This made me laugh, and kind of made me want to do this post too.... I could probably post 25 comments, but instead I just have to agree that wtf is up with places running out of their key items??? I went to a cuban restaurant more than once that ran out of black beans and rice. Um, really???? Arby's running out of roast beef is RIDICULOUS!!!!

I'm lefthanded and I think LHS are tools of torture as can't cut crap with them.

I find Scarlett sexy (sorry) but I'd pay to braid my hair all cool too. And I'm totally with you on the songs.

Hahaha! This was great. I need to put a million comments:

1 - I have been having intense cramps - just every once in awhile. But when i have them i literally freeze & start crying (or almost crying!) & brad has to come massage the whatever that was out! I mean... PAINFUL!!!!! What the freaking HECK!

2, 13, 15, 19!!!!! (it happens b/c SOMEBODY dropped the ball apparently!), 20 - these are all me. Totally me.

I do think Scarlett's beautiful though! Other than that we have a zillion things in common haha.
