I tagged myself?
So I've been secretly hoping for the day that I became cool enough to get on someone's tag list... Apparently I'm still not that cool. How sad! I keep seeing all of these fun posts on the whole 7 interesting facts about me or whatever, and I thought, wow, I hope someone tags me because that looks like it could be fun/challenging/fill up a lot of empty time at work to do! So I decided to be totally like the girl that invites herself to people's parties and I tagged myself? Anyway, here are 7 interesting (okay maybe not interesting but I put a lot of work into this!) things you may or may not know about me!
-
1. I am part hypochondriac. Serious. Josh makes fun of me for it, but I really do think I have a lot of rare and unusual (and some deadly) diseases. When I get headaches I get worried that I might have a brain tumor and they won't find it until too late, or if I am feeling sick to my stomach I worry that it might be a parasite or a tapeworm. Sometimes I really feel like my blood actually hurts, and then I think I probably have some rare blood disease and will start bleeding out of my ears or something. I know, I'm retarded! I also don't go to the doctor, though, unless I myself can diagnose what I think I have (or if I'm actually dying, maybe). If I just haven't been feeling good for a few days and there's no logical explanation in my mind as to why, I figure the doctors won't be able to figure it out either, so why waste my $10 copay?

2. I have this thing for vampires. Okay wow, I might stop now, I'm starting to sound like a creep! And no, it's not because of the Twilight books, either, and no, I am not secretly crushing on Edward. It all started when I saw Underworld on TV and I just decided that vampires (as long as they are nice vampires and only drink synthetic blood?) are pretty cool. I always want to buy a pair of fangs for Halloween, but I never have.
-
3. I have REALLY vivid dreams, pretty much every night. I can always remember my dreams, at least for a few hours. Maybe I'm having visions, I haven't decided yet. I usually wake up and tell Josh, 'I dreamed about this last night, and such and such happened', and he just stares at me wondering where my brain comes up with that crap. It might have something to do with my brain tumor? The only thing that bugs me is sometimes my exes or old enemies appear in my dreams and ruin my good night's sleep.
-
4. I've got this weird memory thing, maybe part photogenic or something. I rarely forget where I put something, and Josh loves it, since he loses his stuff all the time. He can ask me, "hey have you seen my sweet glasses?" and I can say "yeah I saw you take them off and put them in this really random place while I was distracted doing something different". It also comes in handy working with my scatterbrained boss. His client files will always be completely messy, but if he needs something he just asks me if I've seen it and if I have, I know exactly where it is. This also could have to do with my brain tumor? (yes I make fun of myself for my weird hypochondria)
-
5. I can't handle bad food smells. I'm sure this is pretty common with a lot of people, so I don't attribute this to a brain tumor or anything. If someone even ASKS me to smell the milk to see if it's gone bad, I will start gagging just thinking about it. We don't eat leftovers at my house for this reason -- If I open the fridge door and something doesn't smell right I won't be able to eat all night.
-
6. I go through phases of fetishes -- it's true, I get sick of things pretty quickly. I'll never be one of those people that has an absolute favorite band since I was 5, a favorite movie, or a favorite restaurant, even. A while ago I ate a sandwich at this little restaurant downstairs, the Atlantic Cafe, and it was delicious. I craved it for weeks. And then suddenly, I moved on to craving soup from Skool Lunch down the street. A few years ago, for a few months all I spent my money on was Nike shoes on e-bay (which are sweet and I actually still love them) Just when I think I've decorated our bathroom the way I like it, I decide I'm sick of the towel colors and I want something different. Luckily we are poor so I don't get to indulge on my fetishes, especially as often as they come and go!
-
7. I am an extremely quick typer. I used to be really bored when I was a receptionist and would take typing tests just to see how quick I could go. Now, my boss will e-mail me a letter that is all ready to be sent out, all I have to do is copy and paste it onto our letterhead, but I still will print it out and type it, just because I don't want to lose practice. Every once in a while I get a side job typing pleadings for someone in prison or something, and I often feel bad billing for the work, as I enjoy myself so much while I am doing it! I dream of becoming a court reporter one day, as a truly perfect day at work would just consist of me typing to my heart's content.
