25 random things about me

I keep getting tagged in this "25 things about me" meme on Facebook, so I thought I would post it here instead of Facebook. Posting stuff like this on facebook bothers me for some reason.

  1. It's very rare that I get through a day without putting my hair into a ponytail at some point. I will take it down and put it up a million times throughout the day. Once a friend sat behind me in a college class and told me after class "I mean, no offense. Don't get me wrong, it's nice hair. But you play with it more than ANYONE I have EVER seen."
  2. I really really really want to go to BlogHer this year to meet a bunch of people whose blogs I read. But I will probably chicken out and not go. Because I don't actually know those people. And I feel kind of like a moron fangirl by going up to people whose blogs I read.
  3. I quit caffeine a couple months ago because of my acid reflux, and really miss a warm cup of joe and a diet coke every now and again.
  4. I love to read, and do so very fast.
  5. I flip the bird to Worm's Way everytime we drive past it on the way to and from Bloomington. I did a group project for them once and it was the most awful ridiculous thing I ever did in college and I got a bad grade (for me, a low B).
  6. I know an absurdly ridiculous amount of stuff about baby gear for someone who doesn't have a kid. It's all those blogs I read! At least it benefits my sister and friends sometimes.
  7. I remember almost anything for a very long time if I see it in writing. In college I took copious notes but almost never referenced them. I do the same thing at work now.
  8. I am really bad about calling people on the phone, unless it's for a specific reason (ie asking if someone is coming to event or making arrangements to meet up).
  9. I know the caloric content of almost anything.
  10. I have only had one traffic ticket my entire life: a moving violation for going the wrong way on a one-way street.
  11. When my husband first saw me, I was wearing a red coat. I save that coat for special occasions and now just wear it on fancy date nights.
  12. I thought my husband was a weirdo the first time I talked to him.
  13. My nose runs ALL the time, almost. Especially when I run. Then it runs alot.
  14. I worry about almost everything, and then try to plan obscenely far in advance to mitigate that worry.
  15. I have a deep, mad love for Pequod's pizza and chicken/tofu pad thai
  16. I am a pastor's kid.
  17. I obsess over losing things (I look in my seat when I leave places and check that I have my wallet over and over), although I hardly ever lose/misplace anything for any period of time
  18. I love hanging out with my family and look forward to any time I get with them.
  19. I never wanted to get married or have kids until I met Hubs. I just thought that would never happen for me.
  20. I bought a Wii fit and never did use it.
  21. I feel like the housework and to-do lists just never end and wonder how everyone keeps up with it all. There is always something I feel like I missed no matter how much I do.
  22. I have run two half marathons at the breakneck pace of 12 minute miles. Despite that, I am decidedly not a runner.
  23. I think alot about my grandmother who passed away this summer, and what she would think of certain things.
  24. I once had a bedroom that was cotton candy pink. Like, when I was 24 and lived with 3 friends from college. Pink is still my favorite color.
  25. I am a compulsive putter-awayer. I will put my cell phone in my purse without realizing it, even if I meant to leave it out to keep an eye on it.
