Hello, bandwagon

25 Random things about me:

1. I love doing this stuff, but I do not like feeling obligated to do so. Nor do I like obligating anyone else to do so.  Thus, if you'd like to share 25 things about yourself, feel free, and I will love to read it!

2. I like challenging myself and I do not enjoy being told I cannot do something. This is most especially applicable when it comes to feats of strength and agility. Scrappy? Yes.

3. I love the water. I love to swim and ski and boat and just be close to the water. This is possibly what I miss most about living in Tallahassee - I miss the beach and the lakes and the rivers in and around OP! 

4. I wish I could play the piano by ear. I took piano lessons for 8 years and I love to play. Except I stink. I am constantly amazed at how much my ability to play my old songs is based purely on muscle memory. 

5. I have always wanted to work in covert ops. I love a spy game and I once tried to tail someone. 

6. My lifelong dream is to be a backup singer. 

7. My other lifelong dream is to be a record producer. 

8. My other lifelong dream is to be the "professional driver, closed course" on the car commercials.

9. I named my dog George, though she is a female. This is because of the Nancy Drew novels. I love Nancy Drew. Nancy loved her BFFs, Bess and George, both females. George also liked feats of strength and agility - she was awesome. 

10. I like math. 

11. I am not a girly girl. I'm making peace with that. But I LOVE clothes. I LOOOOVE J.Crew. 

12. I am not a fan of talking on the phone. I like to say what needs to be said, but I am not a chatter. 

13. I don't know how to dress in the winter.

14. I laugh silently. It frustrates me because I do not feel it adequately expresses my enjoyment of the funny.

15. I have a touch of the OCD. Not the clinical kind, though.

16. I am a rule-follower by nature. However, if I'm going to follow rules I'd like for there to be a POINT.

17. It's true, I enjoy manual labor. This perhaps stems from my love of World Changers. I love roofing and construction because I like making something and seeing the results of working hard.

18. I like matching my underwear to the rest of my outfit, even though no one else will know but me. And I do the same with argyle socks. 

19. If I ever build my own house, I will have an outdoor shower. 

20. I think I would be a great architect. 

21. I once had a "moment" with God, sitting in the parking lot of the Tallahassee Mall at sunset. I love Him best at sunset ever since.

22. I hate being videotaped, but I would make an exception only to be on What Not To Wear. Clinton, Stacy, and I would have SO much fun!

23. I have been to at least 5 Point of Grace concerts. Don't judge me. 

24. "What I'm saying is all I really want is someone to hold me and tell me that everything is going to be all right."  I like using movie quotes in my everyday conversations.

25. Sometimes I like to pretend I'm in a Cosby lip-sync. 

and p.s. I love facebook.  (:

#18 - Really? I was doing fine with your list til I ran across #18. Now I'm not doing so good. TMI, eDub! I'll never be able to look at you without thinking that your drawers match the rest of your outfit. It will just be me laughing and giggling like a silly boy.
