When I get home from work...

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I am leaving for work in about 10 minutes here, and when I get home later tonight, in like 7 hours...I'd like to read some funny things about others on this site.
So..What I want you all to do, is post some kind of random/funny fact about yourself. You dont have to think very hard about it. Just something quirky about yourself to share with me and others to give us kind of an insight about one another like the biography thread, just different.

I'll start.

-I like to sing and dance in the shower like an american idol contestant.
-I stretch every night, and Brandon watches because he thinks it's hot.
-I love Captain Crunch.
-When I'm alone, I pretend my life is a soap-opera and act out everything I do, like they would in a soap-opera.

So..What's your silly random fact/s?

Fun topic!

* I talk to myself and act out scenes from the novel I'm working on (or just scenes in general)
* Up until about 8 years ago I thought Michigan was pronounced "Mitch-ah-gan." That's how my dad and sister pronounce it, and nobody ever corrected us until I went on a roadtrip with some girlfriends ... *hangs head in shame*
* I speak and read French, but can't write it (well, except for phonetically)
* I saw a tornado on Wednesday!

-I have the inability to drag myself out of bed in time for my hair to dry naturally or to blow dry it. I go to work EVERY morning with wet/damp hair. My coworkers are always amazed if they see me outside of work with my hair actually fixed.

-I can't remember birthdays to save my life. If I remember AT ALL it's always the day before or the day after. I can never remember the day of. (Today is hubby's birthday and I forgot this morning and had to call him once I got to work and saw it on my calendar to apologize...)

-My husband and I don't cook. We mean well, but because we're so tired when we get home and we have street parking only (if you happen upon a good spot you don't give it up) we always order in or go out to eat. There's a taco stand across the road that knows us by name, as well as the Subway around the corner.

* I sing in the shower every morning - I turn on Limewire and crank up Buck Cherry
* When I have to clean my ears, I won't use both ends of a Q tip, only one side. Please don't ask why
* My closet throws up on me everyday - It takes me about 1/2 hr to decide what I'm going to wear... in the end, I have nothing hanging up anymore

Oh good! I was starting to think I was the only one Where I used to live the people at the local taco place would see me coming in the door and scream "GUAC GIRL!" as if I was Norm at Cheers (Erm, I put guacamole on everything...)

Great topic!!

Lets see...
I don't let ANY of my food touch...if it touches, I won't eat it...this includes mashed potatoes and gravy, it just grosses me out. Hubby thinks this is very weird!
I like polish on my toe-nails, but I hate the way it looks on my finger-nails.
When I'm bored, I re-organize everything in the house, or I can sit and watch the fish tank for hours on end.
I clean the toilet everyday b/c it seems gross not to, but I'll let soap scum build up in the shower for a couple of weeks!

I'm sure I'll think of more later, I have a lot of quirks!

1. I always tear my gum in half and only chew on half at a time unitll it loses its flavor. most of the time i lose the 2nd half and have to start with a fresh piece, when i clean out my purse I have like a million tiny squares of gum sitting at the bottom.

2. I wash my hands like 200 times while im out at a bar or at the gym. I got used to the habit here at work in the hospital. It just follows me where ever I go.

3. The best pick up line Ive ever had a guy tell me was...(as im walking past him) "ehhh ahhh hey um youve got nice hair!"
The best pick up line or action was to my current boyfriend "has anyone ever told you that you look like the oldest brother from 7th heaven" (he really does) and then right before i left I wrote my number on his hand...old school style!wahhbam!

Ohhh where do I start:

1. I dance for my husband every day. (It makes him laugh, I'm a really bad dancer)

2. I talk to myself in my car when I'm alone. Not just muttering, full conversations.

3. I hate wearing socks. When May 1st hits I stop wearing them until September, regardless of weather

As I posted a couple weeks ago I like to sing and dance while I'm cleaning the house (In hopes noone is watching )

I can't stand to have dry skin! (This needs to be in the Products you can't live without) When I get out of the shower I HAVE to put lotion on before I do anything else.

I have a certain pillow that I sleep with. I will NOT share it! i also have a Body pillow I won't share

I'm a picker...I cant stand zits on anyone!

I'm sure I'll think of more lol

I have this same issue and it drives my husband crazy. He says I can't just rub his back like a regular person, I have to search out every little imperfection and SQUUUEEEEEZE it.
post #14 of 28
I can gleek whenever I want to.
I'm afraid of mushrooms.
My second toe is longer than my big toe.
I eat macaroni/noodles plain (without any sauce or cheese on it).
There's more, I just can't think of any!

Moz, my son does that all the time!

*I am extremely double-jointed. All the fingers on my left hand are double-jointed, as is my jaw, and both wrists and elbows. It's kind of creepy if you saw what I can do.
*I love wierd ghost/ghoulie movies from before my time...such as The Changeling (1980...okay, I was 2 when this was made, but I still count it), Rosemary's Baby, The Haunting of Julia, Don't Look Now, etc. Something about the 60's and 70's...they did the ghost story thing better than we do now.
*I have a raging crush on Robert Smith from the Cure, even though he's getting rather dumpy-looking as he ages. Oh, and Gabriel Byrne. I guess I just love older men...not George Burns old, but you know. Completely bald men are rather appealing too...like Maynard from Tool, and Patrick Stewart.
*Love disco. I'm watching Saturday Night Fever right now.
*Grilled cheese and tomato soup is a meal fit for kings and emperors.
post #17 of 28
This is kinda interesting

-Instead of eating a taco like... a taco, I break up the shell's and make a mock taco salad.
-I can't stand eating lettuce in/with anything but a salad.
-I pick at scabs constantly, even if they aren't my own sometimes. Not random people mind you, but family
-I have this INSANE phobia of people touching my face. If I have an eyelash or something on my face, and someone just goes to move it with their finger, I freak out.
-I hate wearing shoes. If I can get away with not wearing them, I'm happy, but I have a huge shoe fetish.
-I constantly have dejavu, and I have no idea why.
-My closet always looks like it threw up in my room.

I have to have in dark in the bedroom in order to sleep. I put a towel over the little lights on the answering machine and phone, buy a new clock radio based on the fact if it has a dimmer switch on it!! It can be noisy outside but dark-the full moon bothers me!!!
I hardly ever wear shoes!!! I've been known in the winter to go barefoot in the snow to run to get the mail and newspaper.
In November I buy a case of beef and chicken broth when its the cheapest of the year and use it for the entire year in various recipes.
I won't ever buy frozen corn-I have to freeze the fresh stuff-this yr my corn crop failed I've probably spent more on the fresh corn that what it would cost to buy frozen!!
I have to have half and half in my coffee every day-I measure out the exact amt of coffee and water!!

Ok I'm pretty quirky so here I go:

-I'm a picker too...DH will testify to that as well.
-I do everything in even numbers. usually 8 but sometimes 10.
-I always pretend I can sing/dance like people on the radio or TV.
-I could put vinegar or cheese on almost anything!
-Noodles with a little butter and a good amount of ketchup is delicious!
-I loooove grilled cheese and tomato soup as well
-I detest plants. I'd rather receive a gnome! Now cut flowers and things don't bother me. But if it's leafy....I shudder and will not touch it! I accidentally brushed my arm on a plant at work the other day and I literally screamed and jumped away! Scared my co-worker real good!
-I have to rinse my feet after I get out of the shower.
-I am very protective of my food. I get really bent out of shape if DH takes my drinks or anything. I have a co-worker who 'mooches' food alllll the time and that really drives me insane. I'm learning to tell him no before he even walks over when I'm eating something!
-I can't stand my feet feeling constricted. I love sandals or going barefoot at home.

Ok I think that's enough for now. I told you I'm quirky!

-I sing everywhere- shower, car, house...you name it I was a music industry major (recording technology) - lol i always have a song in my head
- I have to have the same brand of guitar pick or i won't use it- it has to be Tortex....and it has to be powdered (weird habit)
-I Hate potatoes, but i will eat some french fries (if they're crunchy) -lol took me years to even eat french fries
- I have an addiction- it's called ICE CREAM!!!!
-I let my cat pick out my clothes in the morning- weird i know! But it works! I'll lay two outfits on my bed and put Velvet in the middle of them and she'll walk over to one and lay beside it- that's the one i wear for the day. She's my wardrobe coordinator I love Velvet! She's such a good girl!
-I'm really picky about brushing & flossing my teeth- i'm majoring in dental hygeine, so anytime i see someone brushing their teeth incorrectly, i politely show them the correct way lol- I've actually flossed Colin's teeth before- it drives me crazy when he forgets to floss!-yeah i know, it's weird- but hey, at least we won't have to pay for fillings and crowns.
-If someone sends me flowers i will immediately take them out and rearrange them perfectly (i'm a florist/wedding planner-i'm a little ocd on flowers)
-I Can't stand the sound of people chewing, filing, bitting tapping...their nails! It drives me crazy!
- I save my gum if it's really good- i know, i'm embaressed to admit it lol, I have a little dish in my refeidgerator my brother-in-law gave to me yrs ago with a little dog holding a tray that says "Gum Dish" ....Colin would die if he knew that lol.
-I've watched every single porn in Colin's collection just to see if Colin was into anything weird when we first started dating. Lol, he has no clue!
-When Colin's not home, I let our dog Fosters up on the couch with me to watch tv lol
- I can NEVER find my Kroger Plus Card when i want to use it- never! (it's a discount card for local grocery stores)
-Everyone at 3 of our local Petco's knows me by name lol

Up until a few months ago, I thought Alaska was its own island. How on earth did I pass High School thinking that?? Those history books made it really confusing making it look like an island. You wanna know how I figured this one out? My boyfriend was talking about someone driving to Alaska. I was like, "You can't drive there, is surrounded my water!!" Stupid!!

I have this problem with my ankles. I think they are fat. They don't look like regular ankles. My legs are very muscular and the muscles go all the way down to my heel. I hate the way they look. I will not wear skirts or capris. Just pants. I know that my ankles will never change, but I am still very self-conscious about it.

I have no problem walking around my boyfriend naked. However, I can't dance for him with clothes on. I feel self-conscious.

I have this problem too. Usually I still end up 8 minutes late.

1) I am obsessed with bleach. I beleive I mentioned that cleaning the kitten room top to bottom with bleach was the most cathartic experience in my life. I use my bleach cleaner every day, even if its only to clean a spot on the floor.
2) Despite my bleach obsession, I am not a very good housekeeper. I clean full-out about two hours a week.
3) I love to peel sunburns. My husband hates me for it, but its fun.
4) I sometimes suck my food. I've done it since I was a child. I drift off into space and just suck away. On anything. I think my mother weaned me too early.
5) When I got my braces off, my orthodontist said I had toungue thrust and wanted to send me to the spech pathologist, despite the fact that I speak more clearly and with less accent than anyone I've ever known (especially for living in the south).
6) Um, well, some of you may have read this, but I study human skeletal remains and intend on making it my life's work.
7) I practice the tango with my children daily, usually to Jack's Big Music Show.
8) Tonight, when DH and I went out to eat, there was a band on the patio. One of the members looked exactly like Patrick Sawyze. I went up to him and told him. He said he'd heard it a time or two, laughing. When I passed him later, he said "Should I do some Dirty Dancing?". I said no ( I think he was flirting.) Once they started playing, they asked for request. I requested "She's Like the Wind." (You know, Patrick Swayze's song from Dirty Dancing.) He was laughing so hard he couldn't play his harmonica. I guess you had to be there!

Lol, I wish i coulda been there for that Lol, to this day, my sister still hates "Dirty Dancing" because everytime it was my turn to pick out a movie when i was younger, i always chose that one lol. You gotta love a hot man that can dance!

Well you all have full-filled my need for funny stuff when I got off of work. I was rolling!
Nice to know all of these interesting things about you guys.
I'm so going to read these all over tomarrow and quote some, because I'm actually too lazy to do it right now.
You guys are halarious!

Great idea Leah!

- I play make-believe a lot to motivate myself. For example, for housework I don't want to do, I pretend to be a Sim character from the game The Sims being directed to do housework. Or, if I'm having trouble motivating myself to do stuff for college (I study politics), I pretend to be a character on The West Wing (not one of the characters from the show - myself as a character).

- I am against cruelty to punctuation. It hurts me. I don't know how to explain it.

- I have long hair but it is nearly always tied up - sometimes I compromise and just tie it back - but I don't like the feeling of hair in my face when I'm doing something (which is most of the time). I even sleep with in a loose plait (braid) because it's so long that if I don't, either I or BF will end up lying on it and pulling it in our sleep.

- I asked BF for more ideas for my quirkiness, but he was no help. He says everything I do is quirky.

Oh I forgot that one! I am constantly proofreading things in public! I guess it might be because everyone at work has me proofread their reports! Not that I'm perfect myself or anything. I just notice these things.

Case in point, walking through the Peach Festival today I see a vendor who I have also seen at local craft fairs in the past with a sign up that says: We except checks. It irritates me but I'm far to polite to point that out.
