Eight Random Things

It's Friday and here are eight random things you may not know about me. Why eight? Because eight is the new ten.

1. When my husband drives I grip the sides of the car. I make the "sseeekkkkhhh eek" noise all the time from the passenger seat. It drives him nuts. It drives me nuts! I grew up hearing my Mom do it and it drove me batty. Now I'm just like her....

2. When I was 12 my idol was Barbara Bush. I had a veritable photo collage of her on my bedroom wall. George Bush, Dan Quayle, and Ronald Reagan adorned my locker. Dork much? I even packed their pics away in my cheer camp suitcase. Do I vote elephant today? Guess.

3. I will not allow a box of tissues in my car. Fact: The corner of a tissue box in the back window once killed a person. At least that is what my drivers ed instructor told us. Now I'm a paranoid non-tissue box allowing freak.

4. Apple juice and popcorn remind me of Saturday nights watching the Muppets. It was my weekend treat as a kid.

5. I like biting people's fingers. Only those I love. I'm not a total freak.
It gives me a great feeling of satisfaction to feel the squish of flesh and then bone.

6. I rarely read books by male authors. Though I've read everything by John Jakes. What can I say I'm a sucker for a sappy historical novel.

7. I cannot stand when people pull lint off sweaters. It makes my teeth tickle and I have to dig my nails into my palms.

8. I am Edward Gorey junkie. Feel free to send gifts.


  1. Apple juice and popcorn, yum! :D

  2. I TOTALLY REMEMBER THAT about Barbara Bush and the quotes on your walls!! ;) So you have to tell me one more thing, as I knew that one, so I only got seven ;)

    Miss you, hope you are well!

    P.S. Going to revive my public blog in about a month...I'm moving again....back to FL...I'll have to email to explain but its job related, nothing more.


Thanks for commenting! It's always good to hear from a reader and not say, a robot.
