7 Random Facts

Okay, I know this one has been done, and redone and I am probably the only person on the internet not sick of it, but I saw over at Aunt Becky's that she's reviving an old post with it, so I am taking that as permission to do it!  I'm such a rebel.

  1. My favorite way to eat cottage cheese?  As a dip for Doritos.  Only the original Nacho Cheese flavor of course.  Anything else would be nasty.  But regular Doritos with small curd cottage cheese is a snack I'd... well not kill for, but maybe poke someone really hard for.
  2. I have a thing about eyes.  They kind of freak me out if there is anything out of the ordinary about them.  There should be 2 eyes of the same color, in the right place on a face - nowhere else.  Anything else is unacceptable.  Those dogs (Huskies?) that often have 2 different color eyes freak me out.  As does any movie or t.v. show where the bad guy has more than 2 eyes, or eyes on his hands or wherever.  *Shudder*
  3. I grew up on a tiny island in the upper northwest corner of Washington State called Orcas Island.  And I do mean tiny.  It's 57.3 sq miles.  Gorgeous, and an amazing place, boring as hell for teenagers, since there was NOTHING to do. (we called it the Rock - as in I can't wait to graduate and get off this Rock!) It didn't even have a movie theatre until I was 14.  The first movie it showed was Batman - the one with Michael Keaton. And the island was not necessarily anything that prepared me for real life.  I was extremely sheltered and naive when I left the island at 18.
  4. I love fairies! Not Disney fairies.  The ones that look like they're probably up to something :).  I used to have a collection of them, but I left them them behind when I left Washington.   
  5. When I was in high school our class (all 34 of them - the entire Freshman class! Told you it's a small island) went on a field trip to the Vancouver Aquarium, in Canada.  I was wearing a white shirt, and a light blue lace bra.  (And let's just say the boob fairy visited my house early and generously - the bra was at least a C cup by then...) A porpoise spit on me, and made BOTH items see through.  We were in CANADA - and all of my clothes were back in AMERICA.  This was not something that made me, or the teachers happy.  Then I got splashed by the Orca act.  I ended up wearing a teacher's jacket.  I still have never met anyone else who has been spit on by a porpoise.
  6. I am duckfooted - meaning my feet naturally turn out.  I would have made a rockin' ballerina.  Well - if I weren't 5'3" and a complete klutz.  You know that position where they have to turn their feet out sideways?  I can do that and then some, pointing my feet halfway backward.  But making them face exactly forward like normal people do?  That's uncomfortable.
  7. I hate coffee.  The smell, the taste, everything.  Don't like tea either, except for good southern sweet tea.  I also don't like Coke, Pepsi, Tab, or any other cola drink, and while I used to enjoy Dr. Pepper or Sprite maybe 2 or 3 times a month I haven't had any in almost 2 years. I don't drink juice or anything with sugar in it.  And I don't drink water because it gives me a stomach ache.  The only thing I drink is Crystal Light - well, actually, the generic version.  A minimum of 64oz every day, and I wish they'd invent new flavors because I'm really kind of tired of the ones available.
Okay - so that was actually a little more challenging than I thought it would be.  I'm going to tag a few people who I have just recently found and hope they'll do it too!  belladonna, ShannonJeanette, Jill, tinycandianemone pie and won.  It was really hard to just choose 7, I've found sooooo many new blogs this past week.  I hope at least a couple of you want to join in!

I'll play! I'll do anything to get out of cleaning! lol I'm on my way to do this right now!

Creepy Mommy said...

Ooohh, I love cottage cheese and Frito Scoops, so good! I'm gonna give your Doritos a try though, sounds pretty tastey!

Jennifer said...

Hmmm. Never tried it with Fritos. Could be good. The Doritos are the way to go though, I promise. I've gotten lots of people hooked on it!

won said...

Oh my gosh...I was reading, wondering what there was left for you to drink! Glad you answered that part for me.

Anemone Pie said...

Hey, I just found this...off to do it!

Jill said...

Thanks for the tag, I'll post my seven random things soon.

Kristin said...

Oopsss...sorry 'bout that one! I scrolled through and I guess I didn't scroll down far enough. I need to catch up on my blog reading.

Can't say that I find the fritos and cottage cheese appealing, but to each his own.

So, question for you...was it a porpoise or a dolphin that spit on you? A lot of people get those to mixed up and a lot of people think porpoises are dolphins. Just one of my things, being a Marine Biology Major. I used to volunteer with dolphins and have had to do a lot of things to them, including scooping fecal matter. Fun times!
