What what!! I’ve made it to 100 posts!
Thanks once again to all of my readers out there! I can’t tell you how much I love writing these little posts, showing you what I’ve eaten/or cooked, or getting the chance to tell you about one of my great adventures! — and it seems I’ve been lacking adventure in my life in the past few months, so it’s time to get back on the bandwagon with that and go out and live life to the fullest, as if it were a Sandra Bullock movie!
So for this 100th post, seeing as I didn’t have much to share in terms of adventures & whatnot, I figured I’d give you guys a bit of a random “top 10 facts” about who I am and why I like things I do or hate the things I do? Sounds kind of self-absorbed now that I’m reading it back, but hey, this is a blog about my life isn’t it? So here we go.
I prefer television to movies, because I’ll often sacrifice quality for quantity. Namely since you can get attached to a character for several seasons and learn all about them, go through good and bad times with them, and so on — yes I sound crazy I know — but then when I watch a movie, I often find myself asking what happened to them AFTER “the End” …and then I get cranky when a sequel comes out and is just simply terrible. This is also why I’d like to write sitcoms/comedies, because I dream of making people fall in love with a character, and having them live forever in the TV world (or internet world) like Friends with Ross & Rachel, The Simpsons with Homer, Married with Children with Al, Seinfeld with George, and I could go on forever… (Spencer Reid & Derek Morgan on Criminal Minds….mmmmmm)
I do not own the copy right to any of the images used in either of these valentines, but I seriously can’t stop laughing every time I look at them.
I get inexplicably angry when watching reality shows, yet I have Teen Mom & Toddlers&Tiaras programmed to my PVR… I often can’t believe the stuff flying out of those people’s mouthes, but for whatever reason I can’t turn away… I’ve recently developed an addiction to Toddlers & Tiaras because hearing the mom’s defend their behaviour is just prime hilariousness. You want to tell me you can justify spending upwards of a $100,000 to get your kid involved in pageants? That’s a down payment on a house, a new car, and some money into a college fund! …but who am I to judge. I watch them every week. (I am however, proud to say that I’ve never watched an episode of the Jersey Shore, or of any variety of Housewives of wherever.)
I know I really should not laugh at other people’s tattoos, but for real girl, what were you thinking?
I hate cleaning, but I love organizing and color coding. Now to find myself a husband who likes to clean and drive, and I’ll be in good shape.
If you slather it in BBQ sauce or deep fry anything, there’s a good chance I’ll try eating it. I’m a pretty picky Patsy when it comes to trying new food, but there are two solutions I’ve found to dealing with this problem — soaking it in BBQ sauce or dipping it in batter and deep frying it. I’m planning a trip to the Richmond Night Market on opening day with MVS and my amigo Justin Balboa who told me all about the market — he says there’s deep fried snickers, I’m sold. This is also one of the main reasons I want to do a road trip across the USA, namely Texas and Tennessee, hitting up all sorts food festivals and BBQ contests. Can you say Heaven?
Contrary to the deep frying however…I’ll do what I can to avoid eating the crust on food. I used to date a guy who made me “perfect toast”, and he would always cut the crusts off of my toast for me … and since then I’ve been stuck in that horrendous habit. But my hatred for crusts is much more than that… I hate eating the edges of a cake (and will always start with that end if I get stuck with it) or the end of a corn dog and sometimes even the crust on french bread! Now this is obviously a habit I need to get over cause 1. it’s embarrassing to have the eating habits of a 4 year old kid, and 2. when I start traveling, I’m gonna have to eat what I can get and get used to it!
I can pick up almost anything with my toes. There isn’t much of an explanation attached to this one, but I can do that. Bam.
I will always root for Charlie Sheen. While I’d probably never do nearly everything he does, the guy does have a heart, and he continues to beat the odds. In the last few months the amount of things that have come out about him could be compared to what happens to an actor over the course of a LIFETIME, but oh no, Charlie has done it all and in less than a year. It’s not like I want to glorify his behaviour, but seriously, how does he do it!?!?! I want some magic-nothing-will-kill-me-potion too!
I know a shocking amount about celebrities and should probably work at TMZ — just sayin’ Harvey. Over the years I have read a very large amount of People Magazines (Okay…And Us, Star and the Entertainment section of newspapers), watched a good 80%+ of all episodes of TMZ ever on TV (and read TMZ.com every day…), and a lot of VH1 shows about who has dated who, etc. and in this mind of mine filled with cats and food, there is also a LOT of pop culture knowledge.. Not all of it interesting (frankly, most of it is useless) but ask me any question about just about any celebrity’s history — particularly those involving the law — and I can give you an answer. While this may not be the most amazing skill, it has provided hours upon hours of fun while chatting with J, and I wouldn’t trade that for the world.
The most listened to song on my iTunes is Baby by Justin Bieber and I don’t care what anyone thinks. (ps. Bieb, I’m still waiting on you to buy me anything, and ANY ring.)
So now it’s your turn! Tell me something about you in the comment section below. ♥
Thanks again for readin’ ya’ll, can’t wait to get to post #1000! (Well, maybe.. it did take me 6+ months to get to 100 lol.)
Have a great day!
