Betcha Didn't Know (Part II)

30 more random things you might not have known about me....
(You can read about the first '50 Random Things About Me' here.)

1. I like painting walls and ironing clothes.  It's relaxing.

2. I like peanuts, but hate peanut butter.

3. For just a few months in the 3rd grade, I was an inch taller than my best friend, Robin.

4. I can't stand it when the toilet lid is left up.

5. I taught myself how to do hand embroidery.

6. I also taught myself basic web design, PhotoShop and photography with a DSLR.

7. I refused to give my kids "normal" names.

8. Sean and I could never decide on a boy's name we both liked.  Good thing we never had one!

9. I love going to art museums and galleries.

10. My salt and pepper shakers must always be set with the salt on the right, pepper on the left.

11. I can't stand it when the cereal boxes aren't placed on the pantry shelf tallest to shortest from left to right and nutrition labels facing in.

12.  My best friend in the 3rd grade, Kristen, and I would read the books Peter Perfect and The King Who Rained for 40 Years everyday.  We memorized every single word including all the fine print from front cover to back cover.  And every time we read it we would laugh hysterically.

13. I'm right-handed, but swing and open jars left-handed.

14. I love chocolate milk made with Hershey's syrup, but hate chocolate shakes.

15. I've never ridden in a hot air balloon.

16. I like tooth gel better than tooth paste.

17. The only chocolate ice cream I like is Ben & Jerry's New York Super Fudge Chunk.

18. I really enjoy filing.

19. Ever since I was about 17, I've wanted to pierce my nose and get a tattoo.  I have yet to do either....

20. At about age 15, I realized I enjoyed being the 'weirdo' & outsider rather than join the crowd and be part of any clique.

21. I still feel the same way at age 44.

22. When I was in my late teens, early 20's, shoes were an obsession.  I had nearly 100 pairs.

23.  Although I love shoes, feet creep me out.  I wouldn't say I have podophobia, but don't even think of touching me with your bare foot!

24. I've been coloring my hair for so long (ever since I was 17), that I have no clue what my natural hair color looks like anymore.

25. I'm not bothered by bugs and spiders, but don't even think of coming near me with one of those giant sewer roaches!

26. I love clouds and take at least one picture a day of them. (My Flickr set doesn't even half of the pictures I've taken.  There are a TON on my iPhone I haven't downloaded!)

27. I like to take a decorating idea I've seen & like then give it a twist so it's a little out of the ordinary.

28. I also like to take objects and use them for things other than what they were intended for.

29. I sang a verse of We Are the World with a friend for our high school graduation.  It was horrible.

30. I've never had a Jell-o shot.
