25 Random Facts

I did this 3 years ago when that 25 random facts email went viral and everyone (celebrities included) posted their facts.  It was fun then, and it can be fun now.  I was reminded of it when a friend of mine recently re-posted her facts.  I updated mine (some have changed in the past 3 years) and have made it current for my 30 year old self.  Feel free to send me your random-ness, I'd love to read them too.

  1. I have hair that is longer than shoulder length for the first time in 20 years and I'm loving it (even in the moments when it makes me crazy and I'm tempted to chop it all off)
  2. My favorite perfume is Philosophy's "Falling in Love" because it smells like cotton candy and summer.
  3. I have a beautiful Fender acoustic guitar that I have no clue how to play more than a couple cords on.
  4. My car's name is "Tiny Tim" he's a white 2005 chevy aveo hatchback (and this girl drives a standard... hence it being a boy)
  5. I once went all the way to Madison WI to go to a Cal Poly football game.  Was a super awesome trip and I'm glad I had the opportunity to go.
  6. I've never been outside of the USA for more than 10 minutes (mom accidentally drove past the last SD exit in the early 80s and we had to turn around on the other side of the border)
  7. Yes I am distantly related to Dennis and Randy Quaid
  8. No I've never met them
  9. I've seen 4 of my top 5 favorite bands in concert (seen: Bon Jovi, Garth Brooks, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Gary Allan; not seen: Green Day).
  10. The bass player for one of my favorite bands (CCR, they've broken up now but are still a favorite) has posted on my facebook wall... pretty much to tell me that I can't come hang out at his house when he checked in at home and I commented about it. It was an awesome/embarrassing moment.. more awesome though.
  11. This isn't any easier to do than it was 3 years ago.
  12. The movie "8 Seconds" ALWAYS makes me cry
  13. I'm allergic to cats
  14. My favorite footwear = boots, flip flops, or nothing
  15. I've read all the Harry Potter books at least twice, and own most of the movies (all but year 2)
  16. Baking is one of my favorite activities
  17. I hate not having my toe nails painted
  18. I just purchased my first iPhone, and I think it was one of my best buying decisions in a really long time.
  19. I have a red swingline stapler on my desk like the one in the movie "Office Space"
  20. The only professional sporting events I have been to have been baseball games, and I'm not a baseball fan... have always had an awesome time at the games though.
  21. I prefer red to white wine, coors light to bud light, and 7&7s to vodka cranberries.
  22. I'm not afraid of flying, but take offs and landings make me nervous
  23. If you ask me about the Pinwheel Incident of 1999 I'll deny any knowledge of the event in question
  24. The first CDs I bought were Green Day's "Dookie" and John Michael Montgomery's "Life's a Dance"
