6 Random Facts
1) I have never used an eyelash curler. I'm honestly afraid to use the things. I have this fear that I'll clamp it down on my lashes and they'll all fall right off. They kind of remind me of paper cutters. Luckily I have naturally curly lashes, so I don't think they'd help me out that much anyway.
2) When I was 9 or 10 years old, I packed up my blue Crayola crayon bag that I used for swim class with one outfit, a few McDonald's Happy Meal toys, and a barbie and planned on running away from home. I wasn't unhappy with anything in my life, I just thought that it would be cool to go off on my own and explore. Plus, there were a lot of made for TV movies on at that time about kids running away from home and it just looked fun (why I was watching these movies at this age is beyond me). Well I "explored" my neighborhood for about 20 minutes before I decided that I missed my room and my guinea pigs and wanted to go back home.
3) I wash my hair every single day. I know you're not supposed to, but I feel like my morning routine isn't complete unless I do it. Plus I feel like I look like a greaseball if I don't do it.
4) Thanks to my dad, I love bands like Fleetwood Mac, Foreigner, The Eagles, and Journey and I love TV shows like Matlock, Columbo, The Andy Griffith Show, and Murder She Wrote (wish they would bring back reruns of all these shows!).
5) I will not throw a product away until I've used up every last drop of it. Yes I hate to waste things, but it's also a fun challenge to see how many more uses I can get out of something. I also do this with food. You'd be amazed at how many sandwiches you can get out of that last bit of peanut butter at the bottom of the jar.
6) I discovered two new pet peeves of mine when I was on vacation in Seattle this summer. The first is when I would ask random strangers to take pictures of my husband and I and they acted like they'd never seen a camera before (this is with my point and shoot). It's not like I asked little kids to do this either. I always asked adults with cameras who looked like they knew what they were doing. All I told them was to make sure you could see _________ in the background and to push down on the big button halfway to focus before pushing down the entire way. We got a few good photos, but most were of us in front of/covering the building/mountain/object that I wanted to be able to see and others were just out of focus. My favorite was the woman who thought that pushing down halfway on the button took the picture. So she did this several times to be nice, but in the end, we ended up with no picture :/
The other is when people on airplanes touch the top of every single chair on their way back to the bathroom (it's like they use them to propel themselves to the back of the plane). Not only does it pull on my hair, but it wakes me up from my nap!
