I've wanted to write a post like this since I read Beth's post - full of the quintessential "busy nothings" that make up who we are. Nothing earth shattering or ground breaking or even deep - just things that make me - me. You already know a bit about yours truly because of the weekly thankfulness lists (not to mention the "About Me" page), but here are a few more random facts about me and the little things that make up who I am - just for fun.
I don't use flavored coffee creamers because I believe they are wrong on many levels. I'll stoop to half and half (fat-free just begs the question of WHY??), but my heart belongs to heavy whipping cream. My diet belongs to regular half and half though.
Make-up is foreign to me. I've worn it once and I don't like the way it feels or how much it costs, and so with me, what you see is what you get. Zits, rosacea-like redness and all.
I love my $0.89 tubes and bottles of Carmex - they save my lips in the wintertime. Not only that, but when you're in the midst of a major cold and your nose is past the point of raw from blowing, Carmex works like a charm! Dab it on the raw outer portions of your nose and it really does help.
I have no tattoos and no piercings. No earrings. No nose or tongue studs. No man-made holes anywhere in my body. I hate needles.
I don't like bumper stickers on my car because I don't want to be easily identifiable. It's not a paranoid thing, it's an "I cut off that person from church and they recognized my car" thing. Not that I would ever do that of course. However, we do purchase stickers for Peter's toolbox. We paid $0.05 for my favorite sicker when we were in Wall, South Dakota...
Listening to someone sing "The Lord's Prayer" never fails to move me. It's just beautiful.
I would love to be a personal shopper - too fun! But my ultimate dream job looks something like an archaeologist (a female Indiana Jones) who writes books about what I dig up - historical fiction based on what I've found (a la The Source) . I took an archaeology class in college and loved it.
I adore pumpkins (duh!), but Christmas is my favorite time of year/holiday. I've finally decided.
My first car was a 1992 Honda Accord station-wagon which we called "Madame Blueberry" - and the wagon rocked! Madame B. was my favorite car ever and I'm still sad about her sale.
I've traveled the world and eaten all manner of weird (sheep head) and wonderful (Indian curry in E. Africa) foods, but I still can't stand: green peas, green lima beans, and whole Brussels sprouts. And there you have it - ten random facts about me. That was fun - I might have to do it again. Is there anything you want to know? Something you've wondered about but haven't asked. Go ahead - ask me! I might just answer you! And while we're at it, would you please take a second to vote in the poll I put up on the sidebar? I'm trying to figure out what people like about Busy Nothings - what you want to see more of in 2011. Man, I really wanted to type 2010. This may take a while...
I 100% agree about flavored creamer. And don't even get me started on the 'creamer' that need not be refrigerated. GROSS! I still miss my first car...so much...ReplyDelete
This was fun! I love finding out little random things about people. :)ReplyDelete
