30 Things You May Not Know About Me

There are a lot of you out there and let’s face it, if you don’t know me personally, you don’t know my quirkiness. And let me tell you, there’s a lot. I just feel like if you know some of these things, you can better imagine the person behind the blog. So here goes:


  1. I wait until my gas light comes on to get gas. Every. Single. Time. I know I’m not the only one.
  2. I use at least half a stack of Post-It’s a day. No joke.
  3. The Reminders app on my phone is my lifeline.
  4. I have to rinse my cup out each time I fix a new drink, even if it’s the same kind of drink. The leftover ice has to go and I have to start all over again.
  5. While we’re on the topic of drinks, I have to use a koozie for can drinks and all others must be in a cup of some sort that will keep the ice from melting, such as a Yeti. I even transfer restaurant drinks from their cups into my Yeti.
  6. I hate math. And I’m an Accounting Coordinator. My official title is Administrative Assistant, so I do accounting…and everything else.
  7. I am way too uptight about grammar and punctuation.
  8. My favorite color is blue.
  9. I had to wear a patch over my left eye one summer when I was 8 to help correct my vision in my right eye. It didn’t work.
  10. I went to Los Angeles when I was 23. Best vacation of my life.
  11. I wish I could own a plant for longer than a month without it dying.
  12. The only plant I have owned for longer than a month is a cactus, which requires literally no attention.
  13. I am obsessed with Christmas music. I listen to it consistently from the day after Halloween until Christmas Day.
  14. I don’t trust most people. It’s not intentional, but working in a county jail ruined much of the trust I used to give out.
  15. I’m an awesome cook. Unless it’s grilled cheeses or French toast.
  16. I love to clean but my house consistently looks like a bomb went off in it.
  17. I also love to mow the grass and fight my husband over it.
  18. I have attended recordings of The Jay Leno Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live. Josh Groban was one of the guests on The Jay Leno Show and none of Jimmy Kimmel’s guests were live, so I don’t remember who they were. But the Pussycat Dolls played a concert for Jimmy Kimmel live, so we were escorted out back to watch them perform.
  19. I don’t like the Pussycat Dolls.
  20. I’m usually first to point out when someone is rude, disrespectful, or dishonest.
  21. I’ve had gray hair since I was 18. Not just a gray hair here and there. A lot of it. But it only grows on one side so I can part my hair to hide it.
  22. I have been tased and maced. Not because I was in trouble, but because I had to do it in order to become certified to carry those methods of personal protection when I worked at the county jail. And, for the record, I was tased twice because the person recording it (it had to be recording to prove there was no foul play involved in the certification) didn’t have the camera turned on.
  23. I love all National Lampoon’s movies. I could watch them over and over and over again. And I do.
  24. I also watch reruns of Gilmore Girls, Roseanne and The Golden Girls almost every day.
  25. I’m never late. I’m usually at least 15 minutes early.
  26. I love rain. Unless I have plans outdoors.
  27. I was a makeup artist for several years. But I hate doing my makeup each day.
  28. I love Taco Bell. I could eat it 3 meals a day if no one would mind me being the size of a Buick.
  29. I’m obsessed with spearmint Chap-stick. So obsessed that it’s in almost every room of the house.
  30. I wish everyone had my sense of humor. But then we’d all go to hell.

There’s more… I can assure you. But I have things to do, like write up a grocery list for this weekend. I’m off work Friday (yay 4 day weekend!) and why in God’s name I decided that would be a good day to go grocery shopping, I will never know. Y’all just keep an eye on the 6 o’clock news Friday evening. You might see me as a story line.
