10 Random Things

Okay, so I've been meaning to respond to a meme that The Domestic Scientist tagged me with forever ago... and I never did. Because I'm a lazy blogger. Anyhow, the meme was to list 7 things that nobody knows about you. More recently, Helene challenged us CML bloggers to write a post listing 10 random things about themselves. Well, I can't pass up two different meme requests, so I'm combining them! Here is my list of 10 random things you might not know about me:

1. I am generally a very paranoid person. I worry about what people think of me just about every minute of every day. I get easily freaked out about small stuff. Somehow I can always manage to be the calm voice of reason to other people, but never to myself.

2. I have a difficult time remembering specific things about movies - even ones I've seen multiple times. Maybe that's why I like to watch movies I've seen before, cause I'll always see something new!

3. I can't stand the taste of tea. YUCK.

4. Sometimes I can completely entertain myself with only my thoughts. I have been known to sit and stare for extended periods of time and not realize it. I'm pretty sure this is why I take ridiculously long showers, and also why I love JD on Scrubs.

5. I would be barefoot all of the time if I could be. Even at work.

6. I actually kinda like that stores put out all of their Christmas stuff way early. I like to get excited about it early too!

7. I am a total control freak, and it's really hard for me to admit it. Except that I just did, so never mind.

8. I slapped a kid in the face on my first day of my freshman year of high school. Don't worry, he totally deserved it.

9. One of my earliest memories is of sitting in a high chair, playing with a rattle, and watching my grandmother vacuum the floor. It's such a random memory, and yet it's so vivid in my mind.

10. If I could pick a second career, I would be a party/wedding planner. I think I'd be good at it too! So, you know, if this librarian thing falls through, I have options. Ha!

Nice list! About #1: hey, we all think highly of you! Stop worrying.

Agreed on so many of these random things, especially #3. Yuck fer sure. I think #2 and #4 may be related: "This is a good movie. That's a cool car they're riding in. I wish my car had been that cool in high school; or, what if people had unicorns that they could ride to school, instead of cars, and you could fill your unicorn up with jelly beans instead of gas...wait, what's happening? Who's that guy?" That's what it's like in MY head, anyway.

Also, I'll totally go in on #10 with you. Everybody needs a business partner!

Fun stuff! I usually don't do memes but that one was super fun. And I'm with you on plractaically all of these. From the bare feet, to spacing out, to party planning (except I'd like to go as a caterer).

And thanks for your sweet comment over on my page. I wish you were closer, too! The little guy loves new people (especially girls, that little smoothie) and I need an excuse to make more cookies :)
