25 of the Most Random Things I Can Think Of

1. I have a dry erase board on my refrigerator that I bought so that I could do things like... write myself notes to stay organized. I basically haven't used it at all in 2 years. My mom wrote a note on it about a year ago that says "Mommy Loves You" that is still there.

2. I'm addicted to throws. As in blankets. I love them. I have four of them just on my couch and a few more downstairs in the garage in storage. I think its a problem. Maybe I should go to therapy for that.

3. I hate when hands come out of weird places in movies. Like that part in The Sixth Sense when the little girl's hand comes out from under the bed. Or the part in Signs when the alien hand comes out from the coal chute. Or the part in Gothika when the hand comes out from behind the staircase. Etc. It totally freaks me out.

4. I strongly dislike dusting. I think that dust shouldn't exist. It has alot of nerve getting all over the place for me to clean up.

5. I think that Internet Explorer should be struck from the face of the Earth. The end.

6. I have nerve damage in the inside sides of both my big toes from dancing on pointe. I had essentially no feeling in them for years.

7. I never used to wash dishes with gloves. I don't know why. This doesn't make any sense.

8. I dislike most wallpaper designs. I'd like to know who got paid to think of something as awful as massive flowers in a repetitive pattern. Seriously, doesn't anyone know what that does to your visual senses? I think I'd rather stare into a strobe light for hours on end.

9. I use Google to check my spelling of certain words.

10. I'm incredibly picky about winter coats. I only buy them when my last one is falling apart because I know that its going to an ordeal.

11. Bad acting makes me want to claw my eyeballs out. So does bad singing. And bad dancing. And bad art.

12. The last 2 fingers on my left hand go numb often. Maybe I should get that checked out.

13. There is nothing better than a good cry when you need one.

14. I find "asterisk" to be a very strange word.

15. I would like a grape arbor when I finally buy a house. I think that they're very spectacular and beautiful.

16. I think that Jesus wasn't thinking very clearly when he created snow. I mean, come on. Seriously?

17. I find wrapping up in a big blanket to be one of the most comforting things in life.

18. I find the way our ankles, toes, knees and hips bend and work together to be fascinating.

19. I typically like indie films much better than mainstream ones. Same thing goes for music.

20. I can't wait to turn 30! I've heard many people say that their 30s were way better than their 20s. I could go for some of that.

21. I think 2009 is going to be my year. I can just FEEL it!

22. I fully support arranged marriages. Whoever thought up dating ought to be drug out to the street and shot. Who needs to actually be in love with the person they marry? Pssssshhhht.

23. I think red nail polish is awesome and I'd wear it constantly if I didn't bite all my nails off all the time.

24. I'd really like to fluently speak another language one day. I only have one problem... I am simply not motivated enough to do it.

25. Today is Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day. I DO appreciate bubble wrap. It prevents me from causing bodily harm to other people. You know what they say.... Therapy is expensive, bubble wrap is cheap. Any questions?

You're 25 random things are pretty cute. I don't think my 25 random things would be quite as amusing as yours. Why? Because I'm simply not as random as you are. And I think I used random too many freaking times in this random paragraph.

P.S. the word verification for this comment is pates... I think I'm going to call you from this day forward. How goes it Pates?

15 is spot on. My Nanna has a grape arbor and it is in fact all of the things you said.

18 made me ell oh ell for some reason.

most of the rest of these are very true, or at least the ones that can actually be agreed to. otherwise, congratulations on being, in fact, random.

First off, let me introduce myself - I'm a friend of Jeremiah's - he actually did my most recent ink...Anyway, I may be heading to Guat this summer, and have been looking for thoughts from people who are there, thus, me following your blog.

That being said...#12, I had that too. It's usually because you're irritating your ulna nerve in your elbow. So, not resting my arms on arm rests all day long (like at work) has helped a ton. Hope that does it for you! --Looking forward to reading all about your year in Guat.

hi april! I think you're confusing me with Leah:-) She knows Jeremy and will be down in Guatty for a year. I'm a good friend of hers who is down visiting for a week! You can find her blog under the ones I follow... "life and what that entails."
