25 Randoms...

25 Random Things you didn't know about Laura. Wait, no not THAT Laura, me, Laura...

  1. I hate that Laura Bush has the same name as me. Why can't someone cool have the same name as me? Like why isn't, I don't know, Kate Beckinsale's name Laura Beckinsale?
  2. I have dead serious thought of getting a very long wig & wearing it every now & again when I feel like not having short hair for the day. Still haven't got one. So if you ever actually see me with long flowing hair, it's my own.
  3. I actually read the book "Story Telling" by Tori Spelling & liked every page.
  4. I won a hula hooping contest in High School.
  5. I once threw an economy sized thing of Ketchup across the floor in my parents basement & it literally exploded everywhere! All over their BRAND NEW white-ish carpet. That was a bad day to say the least.
  6. I am a bit of an insomniac. No fun. Mike complains to me if it takes him more then 5 minutes for him to fall asleep. I've lied awake watching the clock turn from 2am & then 3, 4...5, "Ahhh just fall asleep!" I yell in my brain! It doesn't listen, in fact it mocks me & says back to me " Now you are even further away from being asleep, sucker!"
  7. I have NEVER watched a single episode of Jersey Shore & I am a little bit proud of myself for this. That is just the type of trashy dumb reality show that I get caught up in. But I won over that one. Man, I am so strong.
  8. I would love to open up a cute little boutique & get to choose everything in it. It would be the sweetest store that women would flock to in the hundreds. I would sell the best smelling home fragrances, & I would be so awesome that I would have the means to make my very own Perfume & sell it there. Don't know yet what I would call said perfume, but it would smell fantastic! I would also sell really random music from artists that nobody has really heard of, but should because they are so talented. I would sell delicate handmade jewelry, stationary, and the coziest blankets you've ever felt. The sexiest shoes would also be sold, as well as unique pieces of clothing, not that blinged out crap, just beautifully made clothes that not everybody & their dog is wearing. Really comfy over sized pajamas (you know like Men pajamas, but for the ladies), and Shea infused stripped socks. And then some quirky home decorations, like funky throw pillows & frames & stuff. It would be decorated awesomely & always smell spectacular in there, with the best music playing on the background. Aww, what a cute dream of mine.
  9. I am beyond grossed out by coral & stuff that has a lot of bumps on it, yuck, I am itching all over just thinking about it!
  10. I had my very first bloody nose out of nowhere a few weeks ago. Not as bad as I had imagined.
  11. I wish I loved to run, like I was a run-a-holic or something. But sadly, I don't.
  12. I once thought that it would be hilarious if I just went up to a boy in high school & put a quarter in one of my eyes (all scrunched up around the quarter, if you can possibly picture it) & say in a silly voice "You would be crazy not to go to Homecoming with me!" And that would be my "cute" way of asking him to a dance.
  13. I want to learn to play the acoustic guitar & blow people away with my skills.
  14. I am overly obsessed with the number 14!
  15. I used to have a crush on David Bowie in "Labyrinth"! Have you seen that movie lately? Could he look any gayer in it? So funny.
  16. I had a weird fear of cats for a while, like when I was in preschool or something.
  17. I probably own enough cosmetics to last me 5 lifetimes.
  18. I definitely own enough perfume to last me like 10 lifetimes. What is the deal with me & my nose?
  19. I use to wish I was Princess Diana.
  20. My first kiss (sorta) was when I chase around a boy named Javier at recess & kissed him on the ear. How romantic.
  21. I don't particularly like Mexican food.
  22. I have a weird scar right above my right knee from jabbing some scissors into it when I was little (on accident, of course).
  23. I hold my breath every time I pass by a cemetery. Some old wives tale associated with this I am sure, just don't remember it.
  24. When Mike and I lived in Logan, we lived across from a cemetery. I still don't know how I felt about not always being able to hold my breath. But I would still hold it every time we at lease drove by it.
  25. I stole the idea to do this "25 Random Things You Don't Know About Me" post from a column they have in US Weekly every week.

I too read Story Telling and enjoyed it. I love the 25 random things in US weekly, I read them all, every week. No matter who it is.

All I'm saying is... that picture of Laura Bush is CREEPY!!!

I think the "hold your breath while you're across from a cemetery" thing came from The Babysitter's Club books. I remember reading it in there.

Also, I totally think you should get that quarter and scrunch it in your eye to ask Mike out on a date. It's not too late - the dream can still come true!

And hey, was it you that stepped on the sewing needle in Mexico or was that me? I can't remember; I just remember it was traumatic.

Oh, and I have actually heard that song by Uncle Kracker, I just had never taken the time to listen to it. Cute song. Love ya.

BTW, how long have you had songs by postal service on your blog?
