fun fact friday

  1. In elementary school, I was cast as the glow worm in “James & the Giant Peach” and had to wear a bright turquoise leotard in front of the entire school. My only line was “I’m trying,” and I had to pretend that light was shining out of my ass. Needless to say, it was the beginning and end of my acting career.
  2. I once had a tiny cut in my neck that bled for 24 hours straight. I went to the hospital and the doctor gave me two shots in the neck before cauterizing it. The night before, Jay wanted to attempt a DIY cauterizing job with a barbecue skewer lit from the stove at Beejaye’s house, but I would rather risk bleeding to death than have Jay light me on fire.
  3. I’ve had thirteen jobs in thirteen years. The longest I’ve been at a job is three years at my current graphic design position. The shortest was my month-long stint as a barista (all the coffee in Starbucks couldn’t keep me awake during my 5am shifts).
  4. The only solo I sang during my show choir days was for “When You Believe” from “The Prince of Egypt” soundtrack. Over a decade has passed, but I’m pretty sure I remember my Hebrew solo bringing the entire audience to its knees.
Fun Fact Friday #2.

  1. I won the school spelling bee in the second grade. It’s an absolute deal breaker when a guy can’t spell for shit (but apparently it’s okay if he forgets my birthday, stands me up, and/or lies to me about his relationship status).
  2. I carry crushed red pepper flakes in my purse at all times and put it on almost everything I eat.
  3. I judge people by what email provider they have. If you use Hotmail, I automatically question our friendship.
  4. I can predict earthquakes. Okay, so really I just predicted one. And maybe I didn’t really predict it. Anyway, the day before I moved out of my apartment, Shi and I set my bed frame on its side to see if I could get it out of my bedroom without having to break it down. After finding out it could fit through the door in one piece, we left it propped up against the wall.

    This is the conversation that followed:
    me: Aren’t you gonna help me put the bed frame back down?
    Shi: Just leave it. It’ll be easier to move tomorrow.
    me: What if it falls on me while I’m sleeping?
    Shi: It’s NOT going to fall on you!
    me: I’m just saying! What if there’s an earthquake?
    Shi: There’s not going to be a damn earthquake, crazy!

    Can you guess what woke me up the next morning? I survived the earthquake, obvi… no thanks to you, Shirley May!

After just one look at my blog, it’s obvious that I love food, bearded men, and the word “vagina” (in that order). I wanted to reveal some new facts about myself, so here’s the first of hopefully many “Fun Fact Friday” posts…

five fact friday

  1. My favorite food is sandwiches. My favorite sandwich is the french dip. And my favorite french dip is from BJ’s. Om nom nom.
  2. I’ve had a lip ring for most of my 20s. It was an impulse piercing that I’m indifferent about now, but I feel like the lip ring is less offensive than the hole that will be left in my face once I remove it.
  3. I can blow some serious smoke rings. I don’t smoke cigarettes, but I used to smoke hookah like nobody’s business. We recently had a sesh in E’s backyard like old times, and five years later, I still got it ;)
  4. My favorite ice is the pellet kind that they have at Phil’s and Sonic.

(You should be writing this stuff down.)
