random friday facts

1. All the clothes in my closet face the same way.  To the right.


2. I think my heel-striking problems stem from a very long and successful marching band career.  I learned how to roll-step in the 6th grade.


3. I never call out sick (when I have a job, that is).


4. Two of the windows in my house are missing screens.


5. I'd like to be famous so that stores would close down for me to shop.  Can you imagine how brilliant Costco would be?


6. When I learned to type, I put two spaces after a period, and probably will for the rest of my life.


7. The thing that I will buy to celebrate my next-first paycheck will be a new dishwasher.


8. I take my tea with one scoop of sugar, no milk.


9. The number of random facts for today will be determined by the time Beth knocks on my door.


10. Learning how to mute people on twitter had a very serious positive impact on my life.


11. I probably shouldn't keep teaching people how to do it, because I strongly suspect I am being muted.


12. The number of times I have peed outside this week mid-workout is approaching triple digits.


13. When people yell or scream, especially in anger, it actually hurts, in my chest.


14. I'm still looking for an outdoor pool that is open year-round.  I would swim every day.


15. I bit my nails in college.  Now I am annoyed by how fast they grow.


16. I am back in my Newtons.


17. I'm a Mac person.  I don't mind PCs but I hope I never have to go back.


18. She's here.  Puppy barking explosion.  Happy Friday!

  1. I double space after a period, too.
    And please please teach me to mute.

  2. Ooooh, 10. Oooooh. I do not have the Secret of Mute. I'm not sure I am responsible enough to wield such power.

  3. I love my Newtons. Never thought I would and took me a very long time to transition into them. Not sure I'll ever race in them. Hope you can wear yours again soon :)

  4. The OCD part of me loves number 1. I missed it--why no Newton's? I learned the two-space thing too, but my first writing job broke me of it.

  5. I think I break out into hives when I see people's clothes facing different directions in a closet. Come to think of it, I haven't seen that in a long time, so maybe I only associate with sensible people now? (Or maybe I don't poke around in closets anymore...) However, my clothes face left. I'm trying to picture them facing right, and it's not working in my head.

  6. My clothes all face left. Every so often I find something facing right and I can't really understand how to get it off the hanger.

    I think an empty Costco is the only way I could handle Costco. I've been in twice and it gives me the shakes. But the deals!

  7. #12 never fails on a long bike ride for me.

  8. Hi Beth!!!!
    All my clothes face left. And all are evenly spaced on matching wooden hangars.
    Also, trying to break the two space habit. Damn you, Mavis Beacon!

  11. #5: I'm having a mental image of you on the show "Supermarket Sweep." Check it out... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSwmFurzkpQ This was on TV daily when I was growing up. My dad actually had a strategy - in the event that he ever got on the show. :)

  12. I have never once in my life even thought that I should have my clothes all facing the same way, nor did I realize that people did that. I wonder what that means?

  18. I was in marching band too! We were pretty good as well.
    I'm pretty sure all my clothes face right in my closet too. Weird. I never thought about it before.

  22. You can MUTE people? Why not just "unfollow"?

    If people have closets where clothes aren't in some sort of order, I'd prefer not to know about it. That's just crazy.

  23. I've always thought there might be a connection between marching band and heel striking for me as well.

  24. I like #6.

    Maybe we could "rent out" Costco for your birthday, and only have you in there shopping.

  25. You could certainly see your skills in the work you write.
    The world hopes for even more passionate writers such as you who aren't afraid to mention how they believe. At all times follow your heart.
