20 Random Things ..

  1. I can't go to sleep until everyone else in the house is asleep (or at least, is asleep as far as I know - I don't do bed checks when I sleep at friends' houses or anything. That would be weird, right?).
  2. I was planning to try and get into a midwifery program while I was pregnant with Emmett, but I changed my mind after his birth. Now I don't know what I want to do when I grow up.
  3. All of my right-side appendages are weird looking and my left-side ones are normal/nice. I call my right foot "troll foot" and my left food "pretty foot".
  4. Oliver always preferred to nurse accordingly, also, leading me to suspect that there's actually something wrong with my right side. He even named each side. I'm probably not going to post those names here.
  5. My main purpose in taking guitar lessons is to learn to play every song that I sing as a lullaby to my kids, so I can sneak them into their consciousness even after they are beyond the age of lullabies.
  6. But I also secretly want to be in some middle-aged band.
  7. I know the lyrics to every song I've ever heard. It's hard to convince people that I really loathe Maroon 5 when I can also sing along to everything they've ever released. It's a curse.
  8. I have to close my eyes when commercials for scary movies come on. I'm still traumatized daily by trailers that haven't been on TV since I was 10.
  9. I am always actively making plans to hang out with friends and family, but I am always pumped when those plans fall through because even though I love my friends, I'm an introvert and home-body at heart.
  10. I have no fullness mechanism. If I were a fish I'd have exploded from over-eating ages ago.
  11. My dream job when I was a kid was "spy". That's still true.
  12. I'm really, really terrible at remembering names and I basically never believe that I've got anyone's name right. Like, I have friends who I've been friends with for years and I still feel uncertain every time I call them by name. I suspect I have something like face blindness, but for names.
  13. I accidentally shoplifted a bottle of water from 7/11 once, and I tried to go back and pay for it later but they wouldn't take my money. I've always wanted to actually shoplift but I clearly don't have the stomach for it (Plus, it's wrong, obviously).
  14. I once had a spiritual experience with a porcupine fish.  I'll tell you the story in person and you can laugh at me as I tear up telling you, just like my family does every time I mention it.
  15. I've had the chicken pox three times.
  16. I've always wanted to grow my armpit hair long, just to see what it would look like.
  17. My favourite running song is "Crazy Train" (Ozzy Ozbourne). Honestly I don't even know how it ended up in my playlist, but it really works for me.
  18. I want to move out of the city, to a small farm, but I want all of my friends from the city to come too, with their kids. We could all grow our own food and raise our own animals and school our own kids... Chris says that's called a commune, and that no one will go for it. 
  19. I try on a minimum of three outfits every time I am going anywhere, because I'm still convinced that there are mean girls everywhere, talking about what I'm wearing. 
  20. I'm starting to grow up enough to realize that no one is actually thinking/talking about me at all, which I think, is one of the most important lessons I've learned so far.


  1. we are so similar it's scary. and I'm still afraid thinking about the trailer for cape fear. my armpit hair is currently long (not on purpose) and we're just basically sisters from other misters. I'd say let's get together soon, but we'd probably make plans and be happy when one of us cancels last minute. we need to be neighbours and have casual dates in our pajamas with wine, cookies and kids. in the morning.

    1. Yes! All get-togethers should be in the morning. Any other time of day is too much effort! I'm 50% convinced to buy a farm out of the city, so if you find a property in the country with a neighbouring farm available - count me in for breakfast dates!
