7 Random Things About ME!!!!

My new blog friend Becky over at Stuck in a Frump has tagged me and now I must list 7 random things about me.

I've been wanting to do the one that I have been seeing on other blogs where they list 100 things about themselves but I thought to myself that 50 of them would probably be pet peeves so maybe I shouldn't do one!

I like to keep things positive as not to upset my peaceful internal balance. I'm laughing hysterically now.

Anywhoo, let's get started.

1. I am the Queen of Klutz

If you took the average amount of steps I take on a daily basis and compare it to the average human being (yes aliens are excluded here) you will note that I am on my feet and my fall/step ratio may be justified a tad more than the average person. Looking at my graphs, I would say that I fall an average of 12.8 times a year. That .8 times is the time I almost fall, catch myself, but is still qualified as an embarrassment. (Unless no one witnessed such fall, then if not it is then thrown out.) One of these falls is my "most embarrasing story" moment. Had this fall been captured on tape, I would be a millionaire. No joke. There are probably still people that see me in Wal-mart when I'm wearing my uniform and say, "Look, there's that mail carrier that fell in the road that day!" Maybe I'll tell this one day.

2. I am the Queen of Procrastination

I have 6 assignments due by midnight tonight for my health class, but I'm blogging. I keep telling myself I work better under pressure. I really do. My family suffers though. Have you seen the commercials for the anti-deppresant drug and the ad says "Who does depression hurt?" Well my slogan should say, "Who does procrastination hurt?" Yes. Everyone.

3. I long to be an organized person

I believe if HGTV came to my house and helped me organize it, it would be back to the way it is now within 48 hours. Seriously. What is wrong with me?

4.I'm not a morning person

Well, let's back up. I'm not a nice person when I wake up no matter what time of day, so this includes nice Sunday afternoon naps as well. I don't like this about myself at all. I wish I could wake up every morning like every day was a field trip or like Cinderella when the birds wake her up and she instantly starts singing and making her bed....

It doesn't help that when I stumble into the kitchen to make coffee my husband is laughing at me. I love him, I really do. Just not at 4:30am. Apparently he thinks I'm hilarious right when I wake up. Maybe it's the scowl on my face, the dried slobber on the side of my cheek, or the rat's nest I have for hair?

Wow. This has turned into 7 ways I could bash myself. I am so depressed now.

5. I have never met a donut I didn't like

Not much I can add to that one.

6. I have struggled with my weight most of my life

Don't even try to suggest that 5 and 6 have any correlation whatsoever. I'm attempting to get Madeline to grow up to be a scientist so she can discover why some people have the fat gene and some don't. It's funny to me that my brother and sister have never had much of a weight problem. Interesting. Now where did I put those donuts?

7. My life consists of theme songs

The day of the postman is a lonely one. Walking or driving along there is nothing to do but think. (Unless you have a bluetooth and someone who will talk to you on the phone all day, I don't.)

There is also no radio.

Except the one in my head.

One example of this is when there is something obstructing my way, construction, ect. and I must get by. I, in my ingenious thinking, get around it and when I do a chorus begins in my head: (turn your volume up and press the play button twice)

"Nothin' gets to you stayin' fresh, stayin' cool...."

I am tagging Deb, Lisa, Cheryl, and Melissa. I don't care if you have already done this!!!! I want 7 NEW random things!!!! MUAAHHHHHAAAAAAAA

LOL, Brooke! Hilarious!

The Klutz thing...the .8 being the ALMOST falls, rofl...I can so relate! (except that things are usually compounded by the fact that my husband loves to LAUGH when I stumble! grrr)

Ditto on the procrastination thing (I'm striving for fab in that area, striving for fab!)

Organization itself I can handle...it's maintaining said organization with a toddler going behind me all day long undoing my work that proves to be kind of tricky.

I'm a night owl that stays up late to finally have some peace and quiet, but then I 'suffer' for it in the mornings, requiring copious amounts of caffiene-laden beverages (which are my downfall instead of donuts), and probably the biggest contributor to my own lifelong battle with the bulge. And I, too, have skinny-minnie sisters and a tall, lean brother. (Life is just not fair)

LOVED the Mento's 'theme' song and scenario. I often have this--um--problem(?) too. Except my song for running a little behind is, "Wait for me...please, wait for meeee" by Rebecca St. James (this is one I usually sing when I'm late for an Awana or WMA meeting at church...)

LOL, loved your list, Brooke!

This was just plain heeelarious, Brooke! As for your boredom, you could get yourself a bluetooth and hang out with the Chapman twins on a 3 way call all day. I've told them more times than I can count how much I think they need therapy. (Remember, I used to see their cell bill! 7000 MTM minutes per month,...no kidding!!) Maybe you could council them??

i'm still waiting for you to tell the story about falling out of your mail truck...i'm telling you, it's like speed buggy. do you even know who speed buggy is?

Kellan said...

Hey Brooke - I also love your list. I'm not one that ever falls much - I don't know why, the way I seem to always be in motion. Every time I come to your site I get a vision of you in my head of out in a suburban neighborhood, dressed like a mail carrier - delivering mail. It's a nice little vision - it's never raining and there aren't any dogs or traffic or anything annoying - just you walking along delivering mail. Just thought I'd share that with you - see ya.

Cheryl said...

Oh girl that was so funny!! I really loved reading about you. When I read your post I feel that you are sitting here telling me the story in person. Maybe you should have been a writer. Thanks for tagging me. Have a good day!

I have a tendancy to turn my ankles over on the smallest of objects. Several times I have fallen and done a roll while simply walking across a lawn. Embarassing! Why no radio? You can get a pocket radio with an earpiece for walking and put it on the visor for mounted. I'm only without mine while delivering businesses for professional reasons.

Little Steps Of Faith said...

From one " Queen of Procrastination"to another...LOL:)

I found your blog through Lisa's..and dern it you already tagged her...oh well, maybe she will be nice and think of 7 stranger things:)

Anyway, I just wanted to say hello:)

Be Blessed, and have a good one:)
