25 Random Things About Me

Inspired by Bibliophile by the Sea, I decided to share my Facebook 25 Random Things tag in the interest of "getting to know you and me." If you make your own list, please leave a link!

1. I don't go barefoot. Ever. I hate the feeling of floor/carpet directly on my feet. I need a buffer.

2. I am addicted to my library on-hold list online. I check it and add things to it constantly.

3. I am NEVER without a tube of cherry Chapstick.

4. I am always 10 minutes early to anything. I can't help it.

5. I love, love, love magazines, almost as much as I love books. At last count, I have 27 subscriptions.

6. I wish I had studied abroad in college. No one ever tells you that you won't ever have that block of time again.

7. I wore black at my wedding. God bless my mother. She so gets me.

8. I have an aversion to getting my hair cut. I will do it; I just don't like it.

9. I really enjoy washing dishes (with the big exception of pots and pans) and folding laundry.

10. I love reading cookbooks even more than I love to cook.

11. I can clog.

12. I don't ever wear any jewelry except my wedding ring.

13. I love to move. I have no house attachments.

14. I could make a meal out of appetizers…and go the rest of my life without sweets.

15. I have strong feelings about y’all vs. ya’ll. (It’s y’all. Don’t get me started.)

16. If I could pick the perfect job, it would be grocery shopping for other people. Seriously.

17. I am a hugger.

18. I am moved to tears by old hymns.

19. I have an obsession with award shows. If you call me on Emmy, Golden Globe, or Oscar Sunday, you don’t know me at all.

20. I can type very fast.

21. I could eat Mexican twice a day, every day.

22. I miss living in NYC.

23. I love to drive. Give me an errand, and I’m on it.

24. I am a huge Georgia football fan...even though I graduated from Alabama.

25. I never dreamed the enormous impact my three nieces would have on me. Being an aunt is a role I have unknowingly waited my whole life for.

This is a fun meme! I am glad you and Diane decided to post it to your blogs.

I like to be early too. I mean, what if you get stuck in traffic on the way or lost? It's always best to plan to be early just in case.

I bet you were a beautiful bride! I don't think there is anything wrong with wearing black on your wedding day.

I would love it if you would do my grocery shopping. How much would you charge? ;-)

Diane said...

So happy you posted your list. I should have added : I am addicted to the on-line holds list at the library as well..I have 35 things reserved now..LOL

I see nothing wrong in wearing black for your wedding, and I don't mind moving either. I have a bit of the gypsy in me :)

Thanks again Jill!

I too am always on time. I have about as many magazine subscriptions as you, I love to move, but I do say ya'll:) I am from the south. What can I say:) I like to go to the grocery store too. I have never heard anyone say that they like it but me.

I am with you on the studying abroad - my one true regret of my youth. And the reading of cookbooks and addiction to mags. :) Fun meme.

Michelle said...

Very interesting list, I love things like this. I never wear jewellery except my wedding ring either and I love washing the dishes.

You are so right about y'all - it's short for you all. You could be a member of my family - everyone in my family, except me, loves to grocery shop. I don't have house attachments either. I don't mind moving, but I don't like all the work involved in it. We used to live in Auburn, but we're Virginia Tech fans - Go Hokies!

Serena said...

i'm not attached to my home either, i don't mind moving, but I don't love it.

This is a great way for us to get to know you.

What a nice thing to say about your nieces!

This was a fun list to read (if you lived closer I'd hire you to grocery shop for me!)

What a great list! I also regret not studying abroad. I stayed here because I thought I wouldn't be able to go that long without seeing my fiance. We're not even together anymore (nor did we make it to marriage). What a waste! My younger sister spent a summer in Spain and adored it. I have been envious ever since.

I loathe washing the dishes. Always have and I don't know why. Come over and do mine anytime. But I like to do my own grocery shopping. ;)
