Thursday Thirteen #18



THIRTEEN RANDOM BITS OF USELESS INFORMATION ABOUT ME


1. I like coffee with cream to drink, but not with breakfast. I prefer something cold to drink with breakfast.

2. I sleep on the left side of my bed. (Okay, so I end up in the center, but I start out on the left side.)

3. I drive a silver car.

4. I don't really have a favorite flower, but if forced to pick, I'd pick gerbera daisies because they come in so many colors and are cheerful.

5. I remodel and redecorate people's homes in my head when I visit them. (I think I've watched too much HGTV.)

6. I'm not so much afraid of heights, but I'm terrified of falling.

7. My favorite color is green. I don't have a favorite shade of green, I just kind-of like all greens.

8. I can't watch horror movies because they give me horrible nightmares.

9. I do not like clowns. It isn't the costume because people in a clown costume don't bother me, it's the makeup in combination with the costume, I guess. Clowns are just creepy.

10. Fall is my favorite time of the year with the leaves changing and the weather (supposedly) getting cooler. I don't like the allergies it brings, though.

11. I am allergic to many, many things, but surprisingly not ragweed. (At least according to the scratch test I had done a year or so ago at the allergy doctor's office.)

12. I love the noise and chaos that being with my family entails, but it is always so nice to go back to my peaceful, quiet home even if I'm a little sad to not be with them anymore.

13. Strange things will make me all weepy... some commercials, small children singing (especially if they're singing the national anthem or church songs). I cry way too easily.

Wow, this could have been MY list! Are we the same person? Yikes! :)

Renee B said...

Great List. We have lots in common. The fear of clowns is such a common thing--it's called Coulrophobia. Have a good weekend!

Julia said...

I cry way to easy too and I love the Fall beause of the leaves changes too but I hate the cold air it bring.

I enjoy your list! Thanks for visiting my blog - Happy Thursday Thirteen!

Well, we may be kin, but we don't share that many things. But #13 is one we do share. I cry at commercials with children and get weepy with I hear their little voices, but not at things other cry about.

Wow. Clowns. You're right about that. I also sleep on the left and drive a silver minivan. Thanks for stopping by today. Great TT!

Meju said...

Interesting list!

If you're ever by my house, do tell me the decorating ideas you come up with. I'm terrible at it!

Lori said...

We have a few things in common from this list- 2,6, 7, and 13. :-)

I choose not to watch horror movies anymore, but they don't really give me nightmares. I guess I had all of that scared out of me at a young age, unfortunately!

Kris said...

I love fall, too. It's definitely my favorite season.

Loved the quote in your sidebar about congressmen wearing NASCAR-type gear. ;-)

Julie said...

Mostly I just think "why do so many people make their living rooms feel like a waiting room?"

I think there are two types in the world -- clowns and the rest of us who hate them.

Great list.
