What You Don’t Know – Part Three

4 Feb

11. I like happy songs.
I can appreciate the beauty of slow songs, but I’m really not a fan. If the song has a happy beat, I’m a happy listener. I also REALLY love to sing, in the car, by myself, alone. But I have recently fallen in love with karaoke…Watch out, world.

12. I come from a family of very loud talkers and selective listeners.
I live in with the constant fear that I am talking way louder than I need to. My family also has a tendency to be very selective when listening to stories. That now is one of my biggest pet peeves – don’t answer me a question if you don’t want to know my answer.

13. I like to think I’m a funny person, but there are times I annoy even myself.
Besides being a mom, I don’t know if anything gives me more joy than making someone laugh. But ironically, I also hate the spotlight. I’m constantly analyzing my behavior and trying to balance being funny and interjecting witty anecdotes without being overbearing and annoying.

14. I hate to buy anything not on sale.
A little piece of me dies when I have to pay full price and I lurves me some outlet malls. I can’t remember the last time I spent full price on clothes. Okay, I lied, I bought a bunch of stuff at Old Navy a few weeks ago. But Old Navy definitely falls in to the not-full-price category since you can’t really buy anything there that costs more than $15. The more money I save, the happier I am.

15. I really love personal questionnaires.
Honestly, it’s because I know that I’ll know all the answers! I’m retarded, I know. But I never have an answer for “What is your favorite color?”

Sorry for the lack of clever posts this week. Trying to get a jump on cleaning the house and organizing, well, my life. And reading all the horrible baby losses on the interwebs has really bummed me out.

    Maybe reflecting on the story about the woman donating a kidney and having it removed through her vagina will inspire something to post. I’m desperate to hear your take on it!

    Did I write this? I think I did because they all sound just like me. Are you me? Am I losing my mind?
