The Facts of Me

The ever so fabulous Whitney is hosting a one day link-up where we all visit one another's amusement parks and learn a little something about each other. Hey, she said it - not me. I just found it really hilarious!

So type up all those weird, quirky things about yourself and go link it up, yo!


I have the humor of a 12 year old boy. Most things that are deemed inappropriate are found hilarious by me.

I get random spurts of energy. Mostly when I first wake up. These energies cause me to bust out in song and dance and sometimes scream at the top of my lungs while driving to release pent up energy.


That's about what my face looks like right before I release my crazy energized self.

I fill my wine glass way too full, and I don't give a shit if that makes me unsophisticated. Classy is 1/4 full?! No way. Fill 'er up, please! 

I rarely pose like a normal person for photos. I like acting silly, so why not capture me at my finest?

I have a thing for old men. Like, not in a creepy, sexual way. But, in a way where I find them so ridiculously adorable that I have to fight the urge to hug them. On a daily basis.

I hate driving. Causes too much anxiety. But I also hate being in the passenger seat. I'm kinda a control freak. Maybe I could just have a private jet to take me anywhere I'd like to go?!

I compare characters in books and movies to my life. I pinpoint which parts of their personalities are like mine. I feel like I can enjoy it more if the characters are relatable.

I will NEVER turn down taking shots with friends at bars even though I hate them and the way they make me feel.


Case in point: My face? Gross. 

Nothing makes me happier than when I walk into a business (Starbucks, (especially the 'bux) post office, gas station, etc.) and people know me. Like, I'm a regular. It's probably embarrassing for most people, but I LOVE it. Makes me feel important. Because I'm lame like that.

Organizing gives me an unreal sense of being high. Paperwork, beauty products, clothes, boxes, anything. If it's organizable, I'll do it and feel amaaaaze afterwards.

I do NOT cry in front of people I don't know well. Or even some people I do know well. I enjoy a good cry, but will suck back those tears until I'm alone. Preferably in the shower because that's where the best cries are held. Plus I have one SERIOUS ugly cry. Oh girl.


Okay, so I'm not gonna cry here, but I look pretty damn sad, right? It could lead to ugly crying. Never know.

I have never told anyone my most embarrassing story, and I will most likely go to the grave with it. It just mortified me. And yes, I know this means you want to know even more now. But too bad! ;)

However, I do not embarrass easily. It's not uncommon for my best friend and I to yell obscenities at one another in a British accent, in public for attention, aka a good laugh.

And that's about that. I could delve deeper into my weirdness, but I don't want to scare you all away just yet. ;)

Kendahl Lanai said...

I love that you love old people haha! I do too and somehow I always end up in deep convo with them whenever drinking. So weird!

Meg O. said...

Love this post!!! I cannot even comprehend having energy in the morning. I'm totally the opposite. Like I can't even talk in the morning until I've taken about 20-30 minutes to wake up.

Neely said...

Shots are never a good idea

Maxine said...

Share the story!! (you knew that was going to happen) I always fill my wine glass WAY TOO full, but hey, when you're thirsty you're thirsty. That doesn't make sense, but just roll with it.

Meghan Granito said...

I think we are the same person. And you really need to share your story now. :)

Xox!!

Amy @ A Glimpse of the Gouglers said...

You are so cute. I like your crazy pictures! Oh and nothing wrong with filling you wine glass too full, you don't have to get up to refill it as often!

SEL said...

As always, we're twins. I never turn down shots. I don't think there's a single time that I have, now that I really think about it.

I get most of my energy in the morning/early afternoon. And then it disappears fast. But I'm blaming the pregnancy for that one.

Wine? 1/4 glass? Um, NO THANKS. Fill 'er up, and call me Mrs. Unclassy-As-They-Come.

I don't cry in front of strangers either. But I can't cry in the shower. The water coming down and the tears made me feel really weird. I totally understand they in and of itself makes me sound weird.

The best cries are definitely in the shower!! I hate crying in front of people. And also I love when places I frequent remember me! It made me sad when my sandwich guy left our cafeteria at work b/c then I had to train someone new how to make my sandwich when he already knew my order by heart.

Lins said...

I too have the humor and maturity at times of a 12 yr old boy. It even causes my husband to shake his head at me! HA HA You really need to share the story now! :)

I'm a seriously ugly crier. I feel you on that!

And on the organizer's high.

Anna Combrink said...

I LOVE organizing. Like to the point I'll cancel plans to do it. Totally with you on that. ;)

Rebekah said...

Thisnwas so fun to read! I'm going to be nosy and say that I'm so curious about your story!

Lia Joy said...

That cry picture... Is that a "the Rangers just lost the World Series" picture? Cause I came pretty close to crying at that point too ;)

Meg - [Life of Meg] said...

You crack me up and are super adorable! The silly/fun photos totally cracked me up, girl! Ha! :)

Rachel said...

You make me laugh so hard, I love it!!

I agree with your old men comment. I think they are adorable as well. I was super giddy when I found out Dick Van Dyke is on Twitter. He's my favorite actor and an adorable old man!

:)

Kisha Jaggers said...

Rachel said...

Love all of your crazy photos and I want to squeeze old men, too. Especially Veterans. :)

tara said...

tell me your most embarrassing story!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;)

xoxo Kelly said...

So random but I read your "girl behind the blog" section and holy cow was it like reading about myself! Maybe if people weren't terrible drivers we wouldn't have road rage. And OCD, don't get me started :) Love your blog!

Jess @ Blonde Meets World said...

And you just confirmed yet again that we're twins (or triplets? or quadruplets? There's lots of twins in the comments haha). And best friends. And YAY!

(minus the crying part I suppose.)

I NEED TO HEAR YOUR EMBARRASSING STORY. LIKE, RIGHT NOW. IT'S NOT EVEN AN OPTION NOT TO TELL ME. The butt of my pants ripped while skiing down a mountain. When I was 16. There's one of mine. NOW TELL ME.

And oh my worrrrrd old men. Well, actually, old people in general for me <3

Janna Renee said...

Haha love getting to know you with the fun facts ;) I love little old men too! They are so cute and full of stories!

Staci said...

I found your blog through Helene! I LOVE old men & I refuse to fry in front of strangers. When I sprained my ankle & had no one to help me but my sister's neighbors, I refused to she'd a single tear until they went home! People who are not eternally bound to me through bloodline or marriage should never be subjected to my cry face!

Jenn said...

I seriously LOVED reading all these facts about you. You are hilarious and if possible- I think you're even more awesome now :)

I HATE driving, too. I'd SO much rather be the passenger.

I'll never turn down a shot- even if it's the shitty $2 shot of the night that makes me feel awful...

My wine glass is ALWAYS more full than a probably "acceptable" amount...and it'll probably be that way forever ;)

Savanah said...

We are very different!! haha! I will cry at the drop of a hat whether Im in front of people or not!! I've broken down many of times right in the middle of the nurses station because I was so stressed!!
I also don't like when people know me in a place! haha, I think it's embarassing!
