the facts of life... my life.

linking-up today with Whitney for the facts of me. 
I hate, hate, hate when people lick their fingers. even the noise is horrendous, not just the act.ish!
I'm not a fan of ice. I'd rather wait for something to get cold, before I'd put ice in it.
when I find something I like. ie song, movie, actor/person, book. I obsesse over it. I will listen to songs, over, and over, and over again. I will read all the books an author has published. well you get the point. 
I stand on the left side of photos. ALWAYS
I make my bed everyday. I hate coming home to an unmade bed.  
When out shopping for groceries, I always take the second item from the shelf.  Never the first. 
I never "top off" my gas tank. When it stops at $59.21, I don't try to round it up to an even amount. 
I have one tooth that is missing, and I wear a flipper. Yup, just like the tots on Toddlers and Tiaras.
I don't like to wear my hair up ever. I once had an ex-bf who told me I looked ugly with my hair up. Its stuck with me all this time. I will keep my hair down to work-out, until I absolutely can't take it anymore.
I played fast-pitch softball for 10 years of my life. 
I am right-handed, but they taught me how to be a switch hitter. I actually bat better left-handed. 
I played 2nd and 3rd base. 
I've always worked in a Higher Education, but I hate school. Well I hate going to school. I see the value in it. 
I drink everything from a straw, mostly a plastic tumbler. Ry-guy calls them " a glorified sippy cup"
I hate to check voice-mails on my phone. I will wait till I have over 20 before I check them. I did download a program that reads the voice-mail and sends it to me in text form.  
If I only could have one beverage for the rest of my life, I would choose water. Ice Cold water!
I hate the movie The Notebook. I don't get the hype.

my lucky number is 32.
I own numerous fleece jackets. I collect them like kids used to collect stickers. 
I don't drink milk. I can't tell you the last time I ever drank a full glass of milk.  ish, ish, ish!
I didn't try smoking a cigarette till I was 25 years old. Never again. ish.
I eat mac & cheese, mashed potatoes, coleslaw, and rice with a spoon. I'm not a fan of using a fork. 
Growing up, I wanted to be an ESPN announcer. Before  Erin Andrews. 

I could watch sports all day long. for realz. except NFL football. I hate NFL football.
I've worn glasses since 3rd grade. In 8th grade I finally got contacts.
As I kid, I was called by my last name, more than my first name. I don't know if you've ever had a friend name Jen, Jennifer, Jenny, incase you didn't know it was a popular name in the 80s.  Therefore, my teachers called me Petrie (Pee Tree). My last name. Like Petrie from The Land Before Time. 

I do not enjoy eating at a buffet. ick.  The feed troffs, the germs.

I just asked Ryan for some facts about me he said 
"you might be the pickest eater on the face of the planet"
"you don't wear socks, like ever." this is true. I HATEEEE SOCKS. even when its -20 outside in Winter.
"you have a dog toy purchasing addiction, and you  name them all."-yup I do name them all. We're starting to run out of names!
don't for get to go link-up and share some facts about yourself!


  1. What a fun post! I too got glasses in 3rd grade and contacts in 8th! Funny!

  2. I also enjoy eating most foods with spoons rather than forks! Food doesn't fall as much!

  3. omg i'm the same way about hair up/down. i will for working out and if i have to in the summer b/c it's insanely hot but i will usually avoid wearing hair up at all costs. and yes, someone told me i looked ugly/like a boy with it up once and it stuck.

  4. Petrie was my favorite! ha. I got called my brothers name by my high school teachers. It sucked. His name is Gerard.

  5. Agreed, buffets are pretty gross. Except for brunch ones. Those for some reason are okay. But never ever ever OCB.

    And now since you mentioned it, I am going to make some mac n cheese :)

  6. I hate when people lick their fingers too!! ahh! the sound makes me crazy!
    I DO have to top off my gas tank! I can't stand that extra change sitting there!
    fun post!


I love hearing from you. Thanks for taking the time to read about Dexter Morgan and his adventures.
