First of all, thank you to the 24929890op-092 people that tagged me to do this on FB. Yes, there is an “op” in there. It’s before 6 AM and I am not fixing it. I know that you guys are all fascinated with all things PQ and I’ve been trying to make up…er…figure out more fascinating things to feed to you.
Let’s see where we’ll end up.
1 — I am not a morning person. I’m a night person…if I’m up all night, technically, I don’t wake up and therefore don’t need to be a morning person.
2 — I can be called B, (real name), B-Rocka, Quello, Jordan, Q, J, PQ, & Princess all on a given day without suffering from an identity crisis. Wasn’t it Shakespeare that said something about roses and names? Be careful with the thorns.
3 — I will probably think of a ‘Friends’ reference to just about anything I hear or see. It’s just how it is. Whether or not I’ll share those references depends on how dorky I’m feeling that day.
4 — When I was in middle school, I was on the crew for morning announcements. I did everything from editing tapes to cameraman to being the actual reporter for 3 years…and then when I got to high school, I lost all confidence.
5 — I spent most of high school in sneakers, jeans & hoodies/tshirts. Except for the days I decided to wear a sports bra as a shirt under overalls (shorts). My best friend has incriminating pictures of me in said ‘racy’ outfit from freshman year. No, they will never see the light again.
6 — In addition to wearing sneakers, I had to dress up for debate matches. One of the fond memories the first floor seniors had of me during my freshman year at lunch was me chasing my friend Ivan in high heels around the circular first floor. I was pretty bad-ass.
7 — I tried out for volleyball 3 times in high school, despite sucking ass and hating to run. I am pretty stubborn for things I’m passionate about though not stubborn enough to actually train myself to run & make it past try-outs.
8 — I didn’t learn how to ride a bike until I was 13.
9 — I’m actually very quiet in person, until I get to know you…or I’m obnoxiously loud. It really depends on the place and who I’m around…Until I get to know you and can be sure that my ramblings won’t scare you off…It’s really hard for me to open up in person. I’m fantastic with the 3 AM emails though.
10 — There is only one huge “What If” in my life…It involves someone I cared/care very deeply about and I feel like he & I just met at the wrong time in both of our lives. He’s happily married and I’m just very glad to be his friend but there are days I do wonder…
11 — I have “Ooh, shiny! Mewant!” Syndrome. Whenever I see something on TV that I want, I don’t hesitate to say “I WANT THAT!”…but I’m very lazy and unmotivated to get everything I want…which is a very good thing.
12 — If I get interrupted in the middle of telling a story…I will pick up EXACTLY where I left off…Even a week later. I feel like the universe is out of whack until I finish my story. Oh yeah, my parents LOVE this.
13 — From the time I was 16 to until I was 19, I went through a ‘thong’ phase…until I discovered hipsters. My lingerie drawer is full of pretty thongs I NEVER wear.
14 — I have a very sensitive stomach and can be very choosy in what I eat. It’s not that I like being high maintenance but my food & drinks for that matter, have to taste right for me to enjoy them.
15 — I’ve always been around older people…and because I’m a tomboy, they tend to be older guys.
16 — I am not allowed to go into a Staples unsupervised. I have a thing about pretty office supplies.
17 — I have insane road rage but I hate using my horn. Just hate it.
18 — I snort when I laugh. I have absolutely no shame about this.
19 — I’ve had beer come out of my nose because a coworker made me snort during happy hour. True story.
20 — Despite the brain damage I inflicted on myself by the time I was 10 (Falling down 5 flights of stone stairs, being hit by a motorcycle, jumping off a moving bus)…I’m surprisingly relatively normal.
21 — I still want to be a reporter.
22 — I was *almost* kidnapped when I was 5.
23 — I’ve only been drunk 3 times in my life…and those three times were enough…I do enjoy a good buzz now and then…
24 — Grease, Boondock Saints & Love Actually are my favorite movies of all time.
25 — Why don’t you tell me something about me here?
Tell me a random fact about you…Or whatever’s on your mind.
Oh and if you ever want to quote me on something, I have a new one added to the list…Which is my favorite thing to say these days: Knock Knock? Who’s there? Your mortality, that’s who.
