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? ;-)

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.

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. ;)

Hey there, I need an Statistics Homework Help expert to help me understand the topic of piecewise regression. In our lectures, the concept seemed very hard, and I could not understand it completely. I need someone who can explain to me in a simpler way that I can understand the topic. he/she should explain to me which is the best model, the best data before the model and how to fit the model using SPSS. If you can deliver quality work then you would be my official Statistics Assignment Help partner.
