Ten (Revisited) Random Things About Me...

Yes, I have already posted the fast-moving 'spam' mail that has swept Facebook "25 Random Things About Me".

And BTW, I like reading these. They are fun. If you don't participate, so be it. But if you don't because you think they're stupid, then you're just lame and lacking a fun bone in your body. If you read and enjoy others' postings and still think it is stupid, then you are a hypocrite. Keep your opinion to yourself and let everyone else have their fun.

I started thinking: you know, I really blog about random things. The difference is that I was LESS WORDY with the 25 random things than the wordy posts I put into my blog.

Anyway, I thought I would outline ten random things about me that I have already posted. It's like a summary of shit I have posted over the course of my blog.

1. I once received a birthday cake from a total stranger. It was HER birthday cake.

2. My favorite restaurant in Raleigh is Hayes Barton Cafe & Dessertry. It has the best filet mignon I have ever had. Period. All of the other food on the menu (that I have tried) is amazing too.

3. I find High School Musical to contain some of the worst songs ever recorded. I cannot stand it.

4. I love the sport of wallyball.

5. I have an almost finished all back tattoo of a dragon. I had been going for close to a year, nearly every two weeks, with three hour sessions. I have been posting about nearly every session. I stopped going at the start of the summer last year. I needed a break and jump into the pool with my kids (can't get chlorine on fresh tattoos). I haven't been back since. And I only have a little more to go. I'll go back. Soon. I just can't stop thinking of how painful it is.

6. I am scared of flying kites.

7. I was once a victim of a container of sour cream being thrown on my head. In public.

8. I find mattresses being delivered by 'civilians' (non-professional mattress movers) hilarious.

9. My favorite book of all time is The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett.

10. I am mildly obsessed with crimes and especially, convictions of innocent people.


  1. I still haven't done my 25 things, but not because I think it's silly. I just haven't made the time to do it. I will soon though...

  2. Surprisingly, Tim did his last night. And then lost it all after he accidentally pushed the back button. I doubt we will see them now.
