Fun and Random Things About Me

It’s always fun to learn new, different, fun, and random facts about people. So here’s a list of things about me that you may not know.

  • My guilty pleasure is TV. I have the TV on at all times. It may have to do with the fact I don’t care for complete silence.
  • I love to eat, cook, watch cooking/eating shows, and if I had only one wish, I’d wish that food had no fat or calories so I could eat the world with no consequences.
  • I don’t have children and I have no desire to have any.
  • I love to sleep so that I can dream. I’m also a lucid dreamer.
  • I have two Maltese dogs, Winston and Churchill. They are my furry children and I’m pretty certain they’re the most photographed dogs out there.
  • I have panic and anxiety attacks. I’ve learned how to use yoga breathing to get me through them or I go to a quiet place and meditate. If that doesn’t work, Xanax is my go-to, and I make no apologies for it.
  • I will choose comedy over serious every time, whether it be a movie or a TV show. I’m not a fan of anything in the scary or horror genre.
  • Pretentious, narcissistic, vain people get on my last nerve.
  • I’ve been told I have a scary memory and it’s true.
  • I can’t sleep or nap in front of other people, with the exception of going to sleep at night with my husband. During the day, I can’t nap in front of him either. I know, very weird.
  • I’m a Libra and the description of a Libra is spot on for me.
  • Although I love to travel, I consider myself a homebody.
  • I’m an introvert, which confuses some people, but that’s because (usually) most people don’t understand the true definition of an introvert.
  • I’ve been to 17 countries– Italy is my favorite country. London and Florence are my favorite cities.
  • I clean the kitchen as I cook and I’m obsessed with having a clean kitchen before I go to bed.
  • I have several pet peeves, but my number one is when people eat loudly. I definitely have Misophonia. There’s nothing more annoying than when people eat with their mouth open, smack, crunch, or put too much food in their mouth at one time. Sometimes, I have to leave the room; it’s just too much for me. Mexican restaurants, with their never-ending baskets of chips and salsa, are painful for me, but of course, I don’t let that stop me from going.
  • I love driving long distances. I can drive from our house in South Carolina to our house in Vermont in one day, which is 18 hours, and it doesn’t faze me. A good audiobook and coffee are all I need. Oh, and of course, snacks. Snacks and a road trip go hand-in-hand.
  • I’m proud to be a Southerner and I embrace my southern accent.
  • I LOVE peanut butter milkshakes and I don’t have them enough.
  • I thoroughly enjoy deep conversations, no matter the topic.
  • I sleep on my stomach.
  • I absolutely love Christmas. LOVE! I watch Christmas movies all year ’round, and I decorate at the beginning of November, and I take them down as last as I can.
  • If I had to choose my last meal, it would be my mom’s country style steak and gravy, creamed corn, green beans, my dad’s mac and cheese, with a homemade biscuit, which is perfect for dipping in the gravy. For dessert, I’d want my mom’s carrot cake.
  • I love watching the sunrise, but I love the sunset just as much.
  • I talk to myself, a lot.
  • Snow makes me very happy.
  • I believe in having a soulmate and I’m married to mine.

If you’d like to know something that I don’t have here, ask me in the comments, and I’ll add the question and answer to the list.

  1. I am totally with you in the kids thing, the food thing, being a Libra, and the movie thing!

  2. Oh Princess Bride. I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve seen that movie. Just love. I also talk to myself but now that I tote my daughter around with me I talk to her instead. I’m not sure which people find more unusual–get strange looks either way. And carrot cake. Mmmmm!

  3. hello you have a interesting site. I wanna say thanks for posting this interesting articles with us. Keep up great job.

  5. I don’t have a question, but I’ll trade you a weird point for a weird point: I like peanut butter and Miracle Whip sandwiches 😊

  6. For me it’s PB&J, the J being grape or strawberry jam. You wrote an interesting and surprising list, and made me think about some of my weirdness and some of my friends as well. It was fun.

  7. Loved these. Now all I can think about is a Peanut Butter milkshake. I’ve never had one, but know already I love them.
