Just the Facts

So I accidentally published this last Wednesday. Or rather I forgot this was Ashley scheduled and published something else. I hate when I do that. It's rare, but it happens. 

I’m still using the “blog crutches” to work my way towards getting back into the swing of things around here. It’s times like this that I miss my old job. I could blog for 8 hours straight – reading, writing, drafting. It was glorious. I was, in essence, getting paid to blog and life was good. In reality my bank account wasn’t good so I left to pursue more. And I got it. But then blogging took a back seat. Like, the backseat of a stretch hummer.

Today’s crutch comes from Erin and it’s a fun way for me to hit you with some about me knowledge.

Something I will...

Refuse to do for the rest of my life: work in fast food. Never done it, never will do it. I’ll go back to being a slave to retail before that ever happens.

Always do forever: be my own person. I'm not one to be swayed by the masses. 

Something I think is...

Certifiably disgusting: people who abuse animals. There are just no words for the type of punishment and retaliation they deserve.

Absolutely amazing: people who open their homes, lives, and heart to either become a foster parent or adopt a child. It takes truly special people to take on that role. My grandmother fostered for 30 years. When she passed in 2002 some of the kids she fostered came. No words.

A compliment I’ve been given that’s made me...

Feel on top of the world: “Happy mother’s day. She's not your baby but you love her like she is. Thank you for being the best BFF”.

Pretty upset: I haven't received any backhanded compliments lately, and none that I've ever let get to me. 

A name I...

Hate: Michelle. If that’s your name then I’m happy for you. Personally, I hate it. Why? Because people are morons and the scenario usually plays out like this:

Them: Michael.
Me: Yup, that’s me.
T: {looking questioningly at paper, then look back to me} Michelle?

Love: Charlie... for a girl. Or Billy, or... any standard guy’s name for a chick.

Something people say about me that I...

Know is entirely false: I honestly can’t answer this one. I’m sure people talk shit about me, but to their credit {?}, they do a good job of keeping it behind my back.

Think is on point: that I’m a bitch. It’s not that they’re right or wrong; it’s just how I come across. I like to observe my surroundings and take in everything going on around me. Done may perceive this as being judgey but I'm an observer, and I’m not one for sugar coating. You want my opinion, be prepared for an honest answer.  

A taste I...

Can’t stand: onions. Just no. I’m very slowly adapting to red onions in salad but we’re talking about maybe 6 slivers. They’re disgusting things... but apparently they’re good for your blood? I don’t know.

Can’t get enough of: salted caramel. It doesn’t matter if it’s hot chocolate, coffee, ice cream, granola bars, chocolate, etc. If it has a salty-sweet flavor I’m getting it.

A song I always...

turn off immediately: I Will Remember You by Sarah McLachlan. I just can't.

belt out the lyrics to: I Wanna Dance With Somebody by Whitney

Animal I...

fear: I don't fear any animal. Truly.

need in your life right this instant: all the strays. I'd rescue every last one of them if I could.

Something I...

will never eat: Sauerkraut. The smell alone makes me want to vomit.

would eat for every meal if I were given the chance: french fries... no pizza. No... tacos. Can I just have all the food?

To enhance my looks I...

would love to, but would probably never resort to: having the girls lifted. Gravity isn't cool and I just want them to be like, Hey! instead of just, hi.

just stick to: washing my face. Ha. No really, I usually leave the house bare faced because I'm too lazy to take the time for even a "5 minute face" {there's no such thing}.

Now that you all know a little more about me, let's hear it. What's something I should {or can} know about you?
