@allyfally: I love it, it’s neat to see little snapshots of people.
1. The feel of makeup creeps me out so I only wore it in middle school a short time to be able to say to my mom “See, I tried it, still hate it.” (I didn’t even like my face painted as a kid).
2. I’ve never dyed my hair.
3. If it has words I’ll read it. Book, leaflet, random terms and conditions, whatever.
4. I have very vivid color dreams that are best explained as bad B rated movies that go on for weeks, they just pick up where they left off each night. The OMG this is so stupid, I wonder what happens next type movies.
5. When I was a toddler my parents say I dreamed I had a yellow rubber duck, because I woke up and went to look for it in the bathroom, it wasn’t there and I had a melt down wanting my yellow rubber ducky… apparently I was so certain that I had one after a few days they bought one just to shut me up. And I didn’t grow up in a home where you got stuff just to shut you up, normally it had the opposite effect!
6. If it can be organized and it’s in my house It’s organized. Not like OCD (people tease me and I’m like no, that is very different… because I don’t want what they go through to be minimized or mocked.), I actually enjoy the process of figuring out and organizing how things work together or fit best, etc.. Or if I’m bored somewhere (work or at a friend’s place who thinks it’s cool) I’ll organize things. Stressed out mommies love this I’ve learned 🙂 “Do you mind if I fold these towels/put these toys away/alphabetize your movies?”… “Mind!? haha… Please!!! Can you stay for dinner? Have a go at my closet?”
7. I moved 800 miles from home just because. Really just because. No job, no school, no one I knew, to a more or less random place (I had a few criteria like public transportation). I later learned both my grandmother and mother did the same thing but they only lived away for a couple years each before returning to their home city… me, I grew roots.
8. My parents followed me when my dad retired. And two of my high school friends work for a company based where I live so I get to see them several times a year.
9. I know public speaking is a very valuable skill, but I have absolutely no interest in developing that skill. ETA: I don’t get panicky, I’m not shy, I just don’t want to, at all, period.
10. I only use one eye at a time, but both work fine, and I can switch which I’m looking out of at will.
