#1. What's a nickname only your family calls you?
I don't really have a name that only my family calls me. My Dad has one name for me (Stink - think Bugs Bunny "Ain't I a stinker?"), and then my Granny calls me Toodles. I have no idea where that one came from. Everyone else just calls me by my name.
#2. What's a weird habit of yours?
I'm not sure if this is a real weird habit, or if it's just my OCD rearing it's ugly head, but when I'm writing all of my letters have to look just right to me. It's not unusual for me to erase a letter or word and write it over and over again until it looks absolutely perfect in my mind. This is one reason I write exclusively in pencil now, unless I am forced to write in ink. Even then I have the ink that erases so I can fix letters that just look funky in my eyes.
#3. Do you have any weird phobias?
If I am at the beach I won't go in the water if I can't see the bottom. I don't have a fear of the water, but the critters that are in the water. The biting and stinging critters that could make a pleasant day at the beach end at the hospital. If I even feel something brush against my leg, my beach day is over.
#4. What's a song you secretly LOVE to blast & belt out when you're alone?
I love disco. Machine's There But For The Grace Of God Go I has always been one of my favorites, and I belt it out and dance like an idiot to it. Too much fun!
#5. What's one of your biggest pet peeves?
I can't stand mess. If one thing is out of place, suddenly my entire house is messy and I must clean. My boyfriend is a bit of a messy guy, so I am always picking things up after him, especially in the bedroom. We have a hamper for a reason, and sometimes it just doesn't sink in for him, haha.
#6. What's one of your nervous habits?
I pick at my cuticles. It is terrible, and makes my fingers look terrible, but I have done it since I was a child.
#7. What side of the bed do you sleep on?
Generally, in the middle, or wherever else I may crash. We have a king sized bed, so I can sleep totally diagonally and there still be room for three more people to make themselves one hundred percent comfortable. I have never been picky about having one side of the bed or the other.
#8. What was your first stuffed animal & it's name?
My first stuffed animal was a siamese cat that I called 'Boo Kitty' because it had blue eyes. I couldn't pronounce blue until I was maybe around four, but she was still Boo Kitty in my eyes. I still have her, in my closet ^.^
#9. What's the drink you ALWAYS order at starbucks?
I don't do Starbucks. It's overpriced for low quality coffee that tastes bad to me. Support your local coffee houses, people!
#10. What's the beauty rule you preach.. but never ACTUALLY practice?
I won't preach something I don't practice. It goes against my morals, and makes me feel like I am putting on a bad example.
#11. Which way do you face in the shower?
It depends on what portion of the shower you are talking about. I generally face away, since I hate getting water in my face.
#12. Do you have any 'weird' body 'skills'?
My fingers are double jointed. I can do this weird claw thing with my fingers. All of my fingers also bend back a lot more than what is apparently possible by most human beings. I never considered it unusual until I met someone who had fingers that didn't bend backwards XD
#13. What's your favorite 'comfort food'/food that's 'bad' but you love to eat it anyway?
Philly Cheese Steak anything. Be it the sandwich or the pizza from Domino's, I love it even though I can feel my blood pressure rising each time I eat one.
#14. What's a phrase or exclamation you always say?
I change out frequently, and make up a lot of words. Buttfluff has been a recent one, to avoid calling people more vulgar names. Example: "Listen here, buttfluff" rather than "Listen here, (insert vulgar name here)
#15. Time to sleep- what are you ACTUALLY wearing?
An oversize U2 'War' album shirt. It goes to my knees and is the absolute in comfort. If I could wear it all of the time for the sake of comfort, I would.
Well, that is my list! Maybe one day I'll have a nice camera so I can start recording some of these tags on video :)
