25 Random Things

I recently came across a "25 Random Things" chain letter so to speak...and decided I would partake in the randomness of it because I lack anything better to write this week and I am a pretty good list maker. So here goes, 25 random things about me;

1. I love Michael so much, but lately I have had a growing crush on Richard Armitage (the actor, not the politician)
2. It is almost 1:00 p.m. and I am still in my jamjams (as Erin would say on "The Office")but I feel it is warranted since today is a furlough day, and I deserve it.
3. My kitchen smells, except I can't imagine why. There is no food out, and the kitchen is sorta clean, so now I am pretty sure it is my garbage, but I don't want to open the lid to take it out. I'll wait 'til Michael comes home, he's fought some pretty fierce stink battles in the past and came out victorious...
4. Mischa Boy loves to take socks, underwear, and anything else he can get his paws on, under the bed...where the items go to die, and never return. He pretty much sets up shop under the bed and it is almost impossible to get him out. We have tried numerous ways to get him out, but to no avail. Finally, I tried knocking on the door, or wall, and he comes running out to see who's at the door. It works like a charm, but I feel sorta guilty tricking him all of the time...and then he does it again, and the guilt goes away.
5. I am feeling sort of bad that I am leaving the garbage for Michael to deal with, so I am going to take it out.
6. I am graduating in a month with a four year degree that took seven years to get.
7. I registered for graduation convocation on the deadline date...that should tell you something about me and why it took seven years to get my degree. I procrastinate.
8. I got a new phone last week and I have been too afraid to put it in my purse. I don't want it to get scratched by my keys, so I hold it in my hand like a tool.
9. Parent/Teacher conferences were last night. The PTA provided a dinner for us and I dripped gravy on my white camisole. I looked really professional.
10. Another 2nd grade teacher showed me this really cool number trick that you can play with your students and they think that you can read their minds. I did it for my class this past week and all my students thought it was really cool...except one. Student B ruined it for me. I think he did it on purpose, so I just won't call on him anymore when I do the trick. That makes me feel better.
11. I have lots of laundry to do. I hate laundry. I hate folding laundry. As of late, and I hope my mom doesn't read this, but because we have so many whites...instead of folding them, I have taken to just shoving them in a drawer.
12. Post #11 got me thinking about how my mom and grandma do things and how opposite I have turned out from them. My mom irons her pillowcases. My grandma won't leave the house without her hair or makeup done. She manages to look beautiful even in a sweatshirt and jeans. Mom gets up early every morning and runs. They both wear dish gloves so as not to ruin their hands and nails. How did I turn out the way I did? I shove things in a drawer...I go shopping in my pajamas sometimes...I hate running!
13. I am starting to regret this 25 things list...I am getting bored.
14. I always wanted to be described as exotic looking. It has always conjured up the prettiest of people in my mind. Instead, my husband says that I am unique looking. I love him lots, and I know he loves me and thinks I am beautiful, so I will go with unique looking...I guess it is endearing.
15. My new couch creaks. I wish we had bought a different one.
16. Sometimes, as I walk up or down the three flights of stairs to our condo, I wonder how it will be when I am in labor and trying to get down to the car, or how I will carry the baby and whatever else back up the stairs. (I am not pregnant, by the way.)
17. I avoid looking at my bank account. Even when I was single I hated looking at it. I don't think I have seen it since I got married.
18. I bought these really nice, clear spice bottles at IKEA to hold all of our spices because I hated how the store bought bottles looked. Now, I can't tell which spice is which.
19. My alter ego is my ROCKBAND avatar. I spend more time changing her clothes, hair and accessories than I do actually playing ROCKBAND.
20. For the past month and a half or so, I have boycotted Wal-Mart, based on moral principle. I am going through withdrawals. I miss their low prices, and the fact that it is a one stop shop mecca.
21. I want to write a book. I always have, but the thought of actually sitting down to do it is daunting, so I end up just telling the story in my head.
22. I have never liked seeing people eat alone. Especially in really public places like a restaurant. If they just had a book or something to read, it would make me feel better. I was shocked to hear that my own mother ate alone in Vegas! I thought we both agreed that it was sad looking.
23. I love documentaries. I think that is why reality tv has such a hold on well as The Office.
24. Whenever I get close to the edge of something I always get this sick feeling in my stomach like I am going to fall. I also don't like glass elevators. They make my legs weak.
25. I wish I was friends with someone famous. Maybe even their closest confidant.
