15 Weird Facts About Me To Prove It

You know those comedians that always open up their show with a lead in like ‘Do you know those (insert your group of people, typically some group we can all relate to) who always do….’  just to get you to laugh right off the bat? OK, that’s my opening line at open mike night. No, I have never done it but I have played a comedian in my own, real life.

Typically, you will not get straight answers from me. Ask my mother and she will tell you the same thing. I just can’t give up this idea that life should be fun.

So, when you read this list, know I do it tongue-in-cheek.

I got this from G’s blog, Nouveau Cheap. Man, this is my favorite-est blog. There’s something about knowing about products before they hit the shelves that makes me feel like an ‘insider.’ G helps fulfill that. Wanna be in the know too? Check out her fab blog here.

15 Weird Facts About Me:

What’s a nickname only your family calls you?
I was called ‘Kim’ when I was a kid. Grandma called me ‘Kimmy’ and she was the only one that did. 

What’s a weird habit of yours?

I have to make my bed every day in order for my day to feel orderly.

Do you have any weird phobias?
I had a phobia about needles. I used hypnosis to get over it. I have agoraphobia and I have to use a lot of mental tricks on that one. Plus, it’s important for me to not go too long without leaving the house.  
What’s a song you secretly love to blast and belt out when you’re alone?

 I got to see Kansas perform at the Ryman Auditorium at Opryland when I lived in Nashville. 

I was in Wolf Creek Pass, Colorado and went into a boutique. They had some wickedly, awesome clothes; I loved them. And then I saw these boots that were to die for. I said out loud, ‘These boots look like something Stevie Nicks would wear.’ The shop owner said that Stevie used to come in there to shop when she visited her aunt, who lived outside the town. Oh, my eyes did light up! Unfortunately, I was too broke to buy the boots but 10 years later, I still want them. 
What’s one of your biggest pet peeves?

 Blow-hards. Rudeness. People that will not own up to their responsibilities.

What’s one of your nervous habits?

 Hmmmmm….biting my cuticles????

What side of the bed do you sleep on?

 I like to sleep on the side closest to the door. However, my hubs ‘has’ to sleep on the left side. I’m banished to the right side. Preferably, I like to sleep alone so sides don’t matter.
What was your first stuffed animal and its name?

Mom said I had a panda bear but my brother got it when he came along. I do remember a yellow bunny but it had a hard, plastic face. Still liked it.

What’s the drink you always order at Starbucks?

 Venti soy no-water chai. With 3 pumps of pumpkin during the Fall and Winter.

Wanna know another story to tie in with the Stevie Nick one? Good, cuz I’m gonna tell ya. That same time I was in Wolf Creek Pass, I went into a tea shop. I had never heard of chai tea before. The owner brewed me up some and I was in love it right there and then. I never have drank coffee, but Starbucks chai tea makes the world ‘right’ for me.

What’s the beauty rule you preach, but never actually practice?
 Don’t pump your mascara.

Which way do you face in the shower?

I love horror movies; I face the door or curtain.

Do you have any weird body skills?

What’s your favorite comfort food thats ‘bad’, but you love to eat it anyways?

 Kettle-cooked potato chips.
What’s a phrase or exclamation you always say?

Oh, Man!

Time to sleep – what are you actually wearing?

I wear jammies, for real. I wear matching sets and most of the time it’s a tank top with shorts. 

Did you just read all of this? Then ‘TAG!!’  You are it!!!

Tag: Would You Rather

Caitlin, who owns Cosmetic Chronicles, did a ‘Would You Rather’ post and tagged anyone who would like to give it a go. 

So, here it goes…

1) Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lip-glosses or lose all of your palettes and eye shadows?

I could do without my shadows, if I had to.

2) Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?

Hmmm…rather easy…never cut it again. 

3) Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?

Pink; I have cool undertones.

4) If you had $1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?

Oh, man! That’s hard because I don’t need either. But, since I have to choose, I’ll say clothes.

5) Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner or eyeliner as lipstick?

Lipstick as eyeliner would feel weird. I’m going to say eyeliner as lipstick.

6) Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?

Sephora, all the way.

7) Would you rather only use one eye shadow color or one lip color the rest of your life? 

One lip color.

8) Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?

 Doesn’t really matter in Florida what one wears in the winter. But I sure in the hell am not wearing winter clothes in the summer!! *dies*
9) Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?
Dark nails. I enjoy pretending I’m a vamp.

10) Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product?

I’m so fickle, I only have favorites of the moment. However, I’ll say lip product.

11) Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?

I had to think hard on this one. I was going to say ponytail but when I’m 80 years old, I think a ponytail will be a bit too much. So, I will say messy bun. I’m choosing bun even though I wear my hair in a ponytail more.

12) Would you rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lip-gloss? 

Lip gloss can go.

13) Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all? Or sharpie them in everyday?

This is another one that had me thinking hard. I’m going to say shave them off. A Sharpie brow is going to be much more noticeable. And I don’t want to look like Groucho Marx.

14) Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?

This choice is out of vanity; live without nail polish.

You are tagged if you read this! Come on…you know it’s fun. 😀
