random friday facts

1. I can pee REALLY fast.  

2. I hate it when people write "tough" instead of "touch."  It happens a lot and now you ALSO will be haunted by it.

3. When we do poses in yoga that put my nose 2 inches from my feet, I pick at the calluses and blisters and toenail polish.

4. Graham barks if you say, "Who's here?" (I kind of expected him to bark from me writing it just now).  One of my favorite games is to wait until he is sound asleep and then yell "WHO'S HERE?" and then when he runs over to me, barking his crazy head off, say, "Did you hear something?"

5. After hearing a song once, I have about 95% of the lyrics memorized.

6. Sometimes I dance while I'm swimming.  

7. This has happened several times: I try a running shoe, fall in love with a running shoe, find it online at 50% off and buy 3 pairs, then decide I hate it and have 2 brand-new pairs left in my closet.

8. I broke my ankle in fifth grade and it was the itchiest thing that had ever happened to me.

9. I am obsessed with scented candles.  I have SO many.

10. I like silver better than gold.

11. I have a Dyson vacuum cleaner.  Totally worth it.

12. I never keep anything in my computer trash can.

13. I almost never wear deodorant (see #9).

14. Sometimes I wish I could be Jodie Foster in "Silence of the Lambs."  I love her.

15. I've been wearing the same perfume for almost 10 years.

16. I will never be comfortable running in just a sports bra.

17. I get really mad at a lot of things that I can't control: traffic, wind, heat, dropping things.  I know it's useless but I still get pretty mad.

18. I can burp decently on command.

19. I sleep on my belly.

20. I can tell my dogs apart by the smell of their farts.

Have a great weekend, everyone!  Leave me a random fact about you in the comments!


  1. Hmmm..dancing while swimming! Sounds interesting. Random fact about myself: I have to sleep with a sound machine or else I can't fall alseep

  2. I can tell Phil and Brizzy apart my their farts.

    any of those shoes come in my size? ;)

  3. I HATE marshmallows. That's my random fact. PS: I'm a size 8-8 1/2 if you want to send some running shows my way ;)

  4. So let me get this straight, you don't shower or wear deodorant? Thom is a saint.

  5. P.S. I hate marshmallows too! (I sat on your page too long and there were no comments when I posted.)

    Also, I will take the 2150s if they are size 8's! :)

  6. #17 ME TOO

    My random fact: I have certain tabs I always keep open in Firefox, then another window for things I only need to read and then close. I'm pretty OCD about the order of said tabs too.

  7. I love these posts. So interesting. Yay for Dyson! It's changed my life. :-)

  8. #16 - shorts and shoes would probably make you feel a bit more comfortable. And keep you within the law, and common decency.

  9. Hate me some traffic to girl! And I'm also an idiot savant with song lyrics. ;)

  10. I think the main reason I became an ultrarunner is because I can't stand train delays, waiting for buses, or otherwise having my progress impeded.
    This is also why, despite the fact you have yet to come run trails with me, I am confident you will end up running ultras.

  11. I am totally jeals of your Dyson. One day...

  12. I pee really fast too. And I LOVE my dyson. I hesitated for a year before finally buying one. It's awesome!

  13. and when I had two dogs I thought it was Harley who always farted. Because they always smelled the same. Now that he's gone I know Springer was part of it.

  14. Here are all of my me too's: 3, 5, 8 (wrist, 7th grade), 10, 13, 14, 17, 19.

  15. Hah #1 - ME TOO. I have raced boys to see who gets out of hte bathroom first - I WIN! lol

    I know too much about dog farts too - luckily Emma doesn't but Kylie makes up for it :-/

  16. I have to sleep on my back. And I am the exact opposite with song lyrics, movie quotes, etc. Can't ever remember or identify them.

  17. I like the idea of you dancing while swimming - so joyous!

    I've just recently started running in just a sports bra and I'm SO self concious. I feel nekkid. But it certainly is cooler.

  18. As an editor, I greatly appreciate No. 2!

  19. 5. DITTO, and I sing along most of the time, too. I'm pretty sure it drives some people crazy, so sometimes it's done very quietly ;)

    11. D will be happy to hear this - he wants one EVERY time we see the commercials.

  20. I don't understand how anyone sleeps on their belly!! Cannot do it. No way.

    I love that your dog barks when you yell that. Adorable!
