10 Things You May Not Know

It’s been a little while since I’ve done any kind of “About Me” post mostly because I’m not always the biggest fan of talking about myself.  But, I thought it might be fun to do a random facts post about me.

  1. I hate talking about myself.  So why do I have a blog?  I don’t mind talking about life, but I’m not the biggest fan of talking about me personally all the time.  I can’t really explain it.
  2. I have never traveled outside of this country. This is kind of why our honeymoon trip is so important.  Actually, neither of us have ever been out of the country, and that seems like a perfect opportunity to go for a big trip.
  3. I hate drinking water.  Seriously.  No matter what I do, no matter even if I try to flavor it, I just hate it.  If we didn’t need it survive I’d be happy.  I do better, most days, at drinking enough of it to be hydrated, but I really REALLY hate it.
  4. I have two celebrity crushes. And yes, Devon knows about both and he also knows if there was ever a shot with either, I’d take it (it’s okay, he has his one or two, too).  First one is David Tennant; no surprise, most likely.  He’s just adorable; I do prefer his British accent over his natural Scottish one, though, honestly, but I just love him.  Even in Jessica Jones when he’s playing the biggest asshole ever, I still loved him.  He’s just that good.  The other is Kiefer Sutherland.  I know both of these guys are completely against what most people think my “type” is, but I love Kiefer Sutherland, too.  Ever since 24, he could do no wrong as far as I’m concerned.  And now, playing the President in Designated Survivor? Amazing. All other actors could go away as far as I’m concerned, just keep Kiefer and David going for as long as humanly possible.
  5. I don’t really have a bucket list. And it’s not because I don’t want to do things or go places or whatever, I do.  I’ve just never sat around and said “I must do all of these things in my lifetime”.  Life is just too weird and unpredictable and I don’t want to feel disappointed in my older age thinking that I didn’t get to do a lot of those things.  There are things I hope to do, but at the end I want to look back and say that I lived a good life not that I didn’t see the Grand Canyon, or whatever.
  6. I have a slight speech impediment. I’ve had it all my life, it’s just a lot less noticeable than it used to be.  I have a slight stutter.  I actually didn’t talk at all until I was about 3 years old. My parents had to take me to a Speech therapist 3 times a week when I was 3 because I hadn’t said a word yet.  I just babbled.  Now, I don’t ever shut up.  But, I do still have a little stutter.  It’s mostly noticeable when I’m talking really fast or when I’m nervous now but it used to be really bad when  I was growing up.
  7. I played the cello for 10 years. And I loved it, I’ve said a few times I want to take it up again, I just don’t have the time to dedicate to it.  One day I want a new cello, though.  I played all throughout school and went to many orchestra competitions with my school ensemble.  (Coincidentally, Devon’s school was also at a lot of these same competitions and he was there with the Band, but yet we still never actually met until college.)
  8. I can’t handle dirty floors.  Like, at all.  I would vacuum my house 24/7 if it was feasible.  I hate the thought of stepping on/walking on stuff in bare feet (because I rarely have on shoes/socks in the house), it’s just really really gross to me.  So, I make sure there is always a good vacuum, mop, and broom in my house at all times.
  9. I can’t eat avocados. And this makes me SO SAD.  Because avocados are delicious.  But, I have a moderate latex allergy that’s developed in my 20’s and avocados can trigger a latex-like allergic reaction, and have in me, so I can’t eat them.  So much sad.
  10. I can’t go to sleep without Chapstick on my lips.   And not just any Chapstick, it has to be the original cherry flavored lip balm.  Devon waits “patiently” every night because he can’t turn off the light until I have put an “adequate” amount of Chapstick on my lips.  I can’t sleep with dry lips.  I just can’t.  Plus, I have a tendency to bite my lips throughout the day, so I have to heal my damage.
