I was looking through my draft posts the other day and found this list of random things about me. I know you wanted to start your Monday morning with some random things about me.
1. I do not look good in button-down, collared shirts. I wish I did, but I do not.
2. I’m not particularly short (just shy of 5’4 which is smack dab what the national average for women is), but I was so short for such a long time (4’10 when I started high school) that it makes me really uncomfortable to stand next to someone shorter than I am.
3. I cannot stand under-baked bread products. It makes me gag to eat bread or rolls or cinnamon rolls that are at all doughy. Frankly, I can hardly even type this without feeling a little bit ill.
4. It is virtually impossible for me to watch anything without subtitles, unless I’m at the movie theater. And even then, I feel like I’m missing half the lines.
5. My least favorite part of my morning routine is putting on mascara. I don’t know why I find it so tedious, but I strongly dislike doing it.
6. My breakfast of the moment is plain yogurt, homemade granola, diced bananas, chopped cashews, and dried cranberries. It is ridiculously tasty.
7. I only wash my hair about once a week. When we lived in Boston, I washed it every other day and then I started pushing it off a little more when we moved to Texas and now I’m down to once every five or six days. This gives me so much more happiness than it should.
8. I have no sense of right or left. I’m 27, and I still have to consciously think about it every single time. I wish this was an April Fool’s joke, but it is most definitely not.
9. I won’t be the least bit sad if I only have daughters.
10. My favorite childhood television show was Sabrina the Teenage
Witch, which also happens to be pretty much the ONLY TV show I watched
as a child.
11. One of my biggest fears is getting in trouble, because I am the most pathetic person alive.
It’s like torture when people ask me who my favorite author is. But,
it’s clearly Gary D. Schmidt. If there are still some of you out there
who haven’t read The Wednesday Wars, I’m obviously not doing my job.
