The Neurotic Versatile Blogger

As promised, my other award from the talented (and recently promoted!) Cole.


For the Versatile Blogger award I need to tell you all 7 things about myself.

1. I always flush the toilet with my foot in public restrooms. Yes, I realize the stall door and the sink handles have just as many germs, but I can't help myself.

2. I have this obsession with headbands. I want to wear them so badly. My favorite barista at Starbucks wears one nearly every day and looks darling. I want to look darling too! Sadly for me, I've got a big fat head, so all I end up with is a big fat headache to match.

3. I currently owe $2.25 in library late fees. If I can't renew a book I'm reading, I'll just keep it until I'm finished. Bad, library patron, bad!

4. I hate it when people mispronounce the words indicative [in-dik-uh-tiv] and preferably [pref-er-uh-buh-leel . If you can't pronounce it correctly, you shouldn't be using it in a sentence.

5. After that last one, I might as well admit this one too: I love dictionary.com! More people should use it.

6. I like to keep my email organized. I have at least two dozen folders in my Yahoo account and file everything accordingly. I realize this makes me a dork. But I'm a dork who can find any email from the last 7 years.

7. When Nate's out of town, I always sleep with the bedroom door locked. I don't know why this makes me feel safer. All it really does is slow the bad guys down long enough to wake me up so that I'm fully conscious when they come to get me, but whatever. If it helps me sleep at night, that's all that really matters.

Your turn! Give me one random fact about yourself in the comments.

My pronunciation pet peeve (well it's not even pronunciation it's just not a word) is irregardless.

You know you have a true friend when she brags about your promotion for you! :-)

I love your random facts. I would TOTALLY lock my bedroom door at night too...if my bedroom door locked!

At work, I have "the red pen of death" ie. the editing pen that I use when other people make me review their email for spelling and grammatical errors.

Oh, and a random fact to share with you.... I promise that I'll add a few new book reviews to our book blog this weekend!

haha we are definitely sisters! I have been known to be the big dork that actually corrects people when they pronounce those words incorrectly...I get headaches from headbands but wear them anyways cuz they are so darn cute! I lock the bedroom door when I am home alone--and shut all the other doors so I can hear a bad guy in another room...I don't get boks from the library cuz I'm too lazy to EVER return them...haha and am probably the only person that pays 4 or 5 bucks at a redbox cuz I keep the movie in my car for days before returning it...my inbox is meticulously organized and I get made fun of--but I'm also the person everyone comes to when they need an old email! I don't do dictionary.com--Ilm naturally a genius.

(haha on the last one--just seeing if you actually read my comments)

I am absolutely terrified of ALF!

I'm also a sucker for keeping my email box super organized. It makes me happy!

Crazy Shenanigans said...

I'm the same way when it comes to my email. I HAVE to keep it organized!

Cookie Crums said...

Me and Sara..... instead of Sara and I. Drives me insane! I drove my teammates in college crazy with correcting them. BUT by the end of the year, they all said it correctly. :)

Something random.... I don't walk on the grass with my sneakers if there is a sidewalk. I don't want to get my shoes dirty. :) Erskine again..... instead of cutting across the grass, I would ALWAYS stay on the sidewalks. Again, I would be laughed at. I would have clean sneakers though!

I'm the same way about library books. It's cheaper for me to buy the book than get it from the library. I once paid $30 in fines.
