everyone has been doing this 25 random things about you stuff. i've been tagged a few times, and i'm finally getting sucked in. hold on, this is going to be a bumpy ride...
1- some people make fun of the way i talk. i say certain words a little differently...like "chwenty" or i have "chwin" nephews...."towlet" paper... "ompen". don't try to correct me, it won't work.
2- a majority of my life, i was blonde. bleach blonde.
3- i believe in bigfoot once a year
4- i love to cook when i go home to visit my family. not having to worry if you have the ingredient or not takes the stress out of cooking for me. plus, i think i enjoy cooking for other people more than just cooking for myself.
5- my brothers used to have lizards and horney toads for pets...and i would play with them. (this almost makes me sick thinking about it now)
6-i was born in orange county, CA. one time a friend asked me where i was born and when i told him this he laughed in my face...like i was trying to be cool after the tv shows and movies and all that jazz. i really was born in the city of Orange in Orange County CA. if i just said Orange, people would look at me like i was stupid.
7- i am not obsessed with my phone as people might think. someone called me out on this over the weekend. i am not obsessed. i am aware. last night, i left my phone at home...by choice. so there.
8- i have a mental list of things that are a big no no. at the top of my list: never tell me i'm annoying. i don't know why that is so offensive to me, but i just don't like it. had a friend tell me this once when we were in a little tif - no dice. my eyes started bulging out of my head and i got really defensive.
9- on a regular basis i write my first name with a slew of different boy's last names. don't be alarmed. there is no harm in this, just a thing girls do. right?? i'm just practicing, and have to make sure it looks right...
10- i love sharing beds with people. when i go home to visit my family, my little sister sleeps in my bed with me. i love falling asleep talking to someone and getting my arm tickled. beb is the BEST.
11- i am a sucker for tradition. don't try to change things. that's how it's done.
12- birthdays are a big deal. for some people they are not, and i feel bad for them. every since i can remember, i've gotten breakfast in bed on my birthday, and i got to pick what mom made for dinner. tradition? i've asked for the same birthday dinner for- EVER. my mom just stopped asking and knows to make brocoli beef. mmmmmm.
13- i own five pairs of prescription glasses that i wear on a regular basis. i used to be a contacts kinda person, but i guess i'm just too lazy these days...
14- every memorial day weekend i'll be camping with about 500 extended family members at the davis family campout. tradition. dutchoven cooking, sharing a tent with cousins, a family dance, family feud...the whole nine yards. i wouldn't miss it for the world. and i will never bring a male with me unless i have a ring on my finger... (i learned from an older sibling that it can lead to a break up. sorry whit, but we like kevin better anyways...)
15- i graduated with a degree in information technology, but i really don't know much about comptuers. i don't feel like explaining this. but my degree looks real nice hanging on my wall.
16- i still use the same passwords that i had in high school. they don't make sense now, which probably makes it a better password now that i think about it.
17- i can sleep anywhere. sitting up in a chair? done. couch, floor, car, plane, loud, lights on. doesn't phase me. but ye be warned....i'm not the nicest person if you wake me up, so don't do it- or do it very nicely
18- i've been in a number of car accidents, and i don't think it's because i'm not a good driver...i just get very distracted very easily.
19- i have dance parties by myself on a regular basis. i apologize to anyone who has walked in on one of these... ridiculous and embarassing.
20- ice cold water is my drink of choice. always.
21-i own way too many shoes...and clothes. while talking to a friend on the phone once, they asked how many shoes i owned i started counting. he stopped me when i got to 75...and he let me count flip flops as a half a pair. whoops.
22- i don't drink soda. sometimes i miss it in a bad way. the only way i curb this craving is with root beer popcicles. i looooove root beer popsicles.
23-i could walk around the mall by myself for hours. it de-stresses me.
24- i talk differently when i'm with different people. when i'm with ryan, i talk like ryan. when i'm with megan and greg....i sound like greg. efy people. efy. work voice? i have one. i think cindy is the only one that knows my real voice.
25- i have a heart murmer...aka regurgitative valve. born with it. checked every 5 years. check up this friday. NOT looking forward to it.
