Bet you didn't know...

.....that I could write a book entitled, "101 reasons I am thankful for the invention of boys briefs in dark colors." Long title. How about "Boys + Tighty Whities = Disaster"

....that the 357 text messages I sent last month cost me .20 a text. I didn't know that either, was under the impression (told by dh) that they were free! SURPRISE! NOT! They are now!!!

....that i have monkey feet. My middle toe is longer than any of my other toes. Creepy.

...that when I sweep up a Lego.... I throw it away.

....that there is NO DIET COKE in my house right now. It is like living a nightmare that won't go away!

What don't I know about you? What is your random fact?

Well, I suppose I also have monkey feet then! My second toe is by far the longest!

It takes me DAYS to get started on a new project! I will take hours to decide on a pattern, change a few times and then decide. Then it takes hours to choose the fabric, change it a few times, and then decide. And then change the pattern again. Drives me nuts!

I am terribly untidy. I will shove stuff into the closet until I cannot find anything and then re-organize the whole cupboard once or twice a month. If I stayed neat and tidy, it won't be necessary, but it has always been this way.

I cannot watch a horror movie. If I happen to see even a small part of it, I will sleep with the light on for weeks! (Despite telling the kids "It's not real, it's only a movie")

Enough sharing!

Wow on those text messages! :S yikes!

My second toe on both feet is longer than any of others, and when I took pointe in ballet I didn't tell anyone because I didn't want to have to wear the stupid big toe extender thingy because it was ugly.

Wilma NC said...

My second toe isn't longer, but Dave says I have monkey feet cause I can pick up coins from the floor with my toes, lol.

Kristi said...

my middle toe is longer then the rest and I've heard that (or been told) if your middle toe is longer then the rest you are of superior intelligence :) or that you have a higher then average IQ...something like that. I'm sure studies have been done but I'm just going to tell everyone that it means I'm smart :)

Kira Rae said...

too funny. John thinks its crazy that when I sweep my sewing space that I throw the pins away instead of pick them out. O-well, I'll just buy more.

JJ said...

I haven't any long toes, but I have a thing with light switches when you have more than one on a panel they all have to be in the same direction.In my old home when I was going to bed I wouldn't turn on the light so i could see to go up the stairs (or such I say fall up the stairs) even though I could turn it off at the top of the stairs but if I did they would not be in the same direction. Also I can't have any rugs with fringe on them because theres nothing worse than messy fringe. Do you think I need a therapist?

JJ said...

I forgot to mention that I hope when you sweep up the legos and throw them a way that Lego Man doen't ever get in your broom.

Blakely said...

Wow that is a lot for texting.

I'm not a morning person at all and I'm pretty much late for everything.

Lynsey Lou said...

At least two of those 357 texts were to me.
I like to sing really loud in the car even with someone who cares how you sound.
I pee alittle every time I sneeze and I toot when tickled. I know its sick but it is true.
I love to scrub the toilets!
Ok good enough

Random Facts about me:

2. that I'm a grandma without being a mom (techincally) and am under 40 years old.
3. that I couldn'g live without Greta my sewing maching and my Rainbow vacuum cleaner.
4. wish someone would invent an outdoor vacuum cleaner.
5. that I'm an imperfect perfectionist.

Lindsey said...

When I sweep up a penny, I throw it out.

I hate wearing shoes indoors.

I hope to have 4 kids before I'm 40.

Pretty Things said...

LOL on the briefs, and audible gasp at the texting! I told Rick (dh) and he said, "OHNO!.

Kathi D said...

Oh lord, no Diet Coke? Do you need me to call and talk you down?

We may actually be related by marriage. My SIL has the monkey toe.

I'm not wearing a bra. I'm sorry if that makes you want to poke out your eyes with a salad fork. But you asked.

Sundays Child said...

Let's see ...

I can touch my nose with my tongue (and I don't have a big nose! hee hee).

Like Pinktulip, I am also very untidy.

I have been known to cook pork chops in the middle of the night.

My feet were meant for Birkenstocks. Put my honking big ole feet beside a pair and you will see, someone invented them just for me.

I have over 80 pairs of undies.

There is no substitute (in my humble opinion) for REAL Q-tips!

That's all for now .. Julie Andrea

Living in a house with no diet coke is akin to living in hell. Just thought you ought to know!

Scrappinfor3 said...

So funny about the undies!!! So true! I am just figuring out that I should just go with how I am wired & try to get things done instead of spinning my wheels figuring out the best way to get them done. Isn't that silly? Must be my propensity to procrastinate! Time to get something done!

Amy said...

...that I once licked the knife in between frosting each and every cupcake I was going to serve my freak of a mother in law
...that I didnt pump gas until I bought my first car at the age of 20
...that I cannot make gravy (it just wont turn out right!)

Jessica G. said...

I am not a foot person nor do I have monkey toes but all my kids can pick up things with their feet and hand it to me. FREAKS me OUT!

trisha too said...

I can pick up things AND viciously pinch people with my monkey toes, skills diligently and proudly practiced since early childhood.

Very practical and handy skills, too.

Get it? Handy??

ANYWAY, It's called Morton's Toe. It's the condition where the second toe is longer than the first toe. Well, DUH UH, Dr. Morton!

Hello~happy new year............................................................

Carrie said...

I never run out of Diet Coke! If I'm out in the house I have a 12pk in the car!

Jenny said...

Crooked Curtains are a sin!!!

I have been known to not make my bed in the morning, but to make it before I get into it at night.

Anything I sweep up gets thrown away!!

Princess of Everything (and then some) said...


I totally understand the boys undies thing!

Me? I carry my phone in my bra. Sometimes I boob dial people.

I also make my bed as soon as I grt out of it in the am.

I also may steal this from you!
