13 Random Things

So there’s these group of people who do “Thursday Thirteen”…and this is my first week participating. If you’re coming over from the TT blog, welcome 🙂 Hope you look around and stay a while.

Since I can’t brain today, I will share 13 things you wish you didn’t know…

1 — I was born a blond with baby blue eyes and then as I grew older, my eyes changed to hazel and my hair grew darker. So, for those who are wondering if I’m a natural blonde…basically. That explains a lot, don’t it?

2 — The year that I was 9….I fell out of a moving bus, got hit by a motorcycle and got in 6 fights with boys/girls who were in 8th grade (I was in 5th). I came out the winner in all of the fights and was the most respected kid in school (K-8th grade). My parents didn’t even know I was hit by a motorcycle until I told them 2 years ago.

3 — I hate going to the dentist. The first time that I went to the dentist was in the middle of the night when I was 8. In every neighborhood, there was a dentist, a doctor and a pharmacy open 24 hours for those who couldn’t make it to the emergency room. One night, I woke up with a painful toothache so my dad took me to the dentist. The motherfucker stuck a needle in me to numb…the motherfucking phone rang so HE STOPPED THE INJECTION, answered the phone as I’m lying there, trying not to cry…5 minutes later, he comes back and sticks the needle in me AGAIN. Needless to say…I’m really not fond of dentists.

4 — When I was a little kid, my cousins and I loved the Power Rangers. I was yellow, my little cousin was pink, my bro was blue and my older cousin was red. Yes. There are home videos. No, you will never see them.

5 — I have to either wear high high heels or sneakers. Nothing in between. I can’t stand chunky heels

6– I have the worst habit of wearing hoodies in the winter. By worst habit, I mean, in the office on top of my work clothes. I’m such a comfort freak.

7 — Everyone knows that my preference in men is…Hmmm…Dark chocolate (Taye Diggs)….There’s something about a brotha that just gets my juices flowin…but there are some men that just make me weak like: Channing Tatum, George Clooney, Jason Statham…etc.

8 — I’ve been in love with John Travolta since I saw him in Grease when I was like 6.

9 — I used to be REALLY shy in high school. All I ever wanted was to be in a play and even though I tried out for a play, I froze on stage. I was so incredibly self-conscious that I barely made it through my monologue.

10 — I know every line to the movie Boondock Saints.

11 — I’m addicted to White Mocha from Starbucks.

12 — One of my biggest goals is to travel the world and visit every continent and as many countries as I can.

13 — I am INCREDIBLY easily amused…I laugh at the stupidest things and I’m obsessed with the LOLCatz.

So…tell me some things about YOU.

    I went the other way around. I was born with black hair. It grew out platinum. Now it’s kind of a honey color with streaks.

    I love that list. Remind me never to visit that dentist!

    Welcome to TT!

    Finding out a little more about you is always kinda cool…

    I was born with black hair, now I have none.

    Great list. I’ve done a couple like that in the past — mine are usually random things on a topic. I try not to be too sturctured. Welcome to our world.
    Thanks for dropping by earlier.

    My dentist is a sweetheart. He gives me nitrous oxide before the novacaine. By the time the needle’s coming at me, I could care less!

  • yvonne November 6, 2008, 9:47 pm

    I hate the Dentist too…..Thank God they all have “sweet air” and headphones/music.

    I have three dentist at all times. Regular, oral, perio….

    These were interesting!

    All dentists are sadists. I’m convinced! My Starbucks addictions is an Iced caramel machiatto. Yum!

  • Sheri/Cookingmom November 7, 2008, 12:33 am

    LOLcats make me ridiculously happy.

  • Krypto November 7, 2008, 11:52 am

    I was born a blonde too and then it got dark quick. Over the years though my blonde hair has been coming back.

    When I let my hair grow long I end up with some blonde in it and my beard starts to turn into a mix of gold and black. Only when it gets really long though. I’m talking about Static X long.

    You got hit by a bus? Then hit by a motorcycle? Damn…

    My brother in law is a dentist. I don’t necessarily hate dentists themselves but I hate dental visits. Getting the wisdom teeth pulled was one of the worst things.

    A couple months ago I went to the periodontists to get some surgery done. I was given a pill to help knock me out. I waited in the waiting room with my wife for it to kick in. Out of no where I started talking to my wife and telling her about all the girls I liked in college. And how you should practice kissing on a potato. The periodontist realized the pill was kicking in.

    Oh my gosh. You were hit by a bus? That stupid, stupid dentist. I totally understand why you don’t like them! I TOTALLY hear you on the hoodies, I do the same thing 😉 I, too, am a traveler. Really my only life goal is to visit all 50 states, and all 7 continents…

    Thanks for stopping by! Come again 🙂
