Let's Talk Facts

Today I'm linking up with the hilarious Whitney from I Wore Yoga Pants to Work. A) Because I love when people tell me what to blog about because then I don't have to be creative at all and B) Whitney's pretty. I like pretty people. 

So here are some random facts all about me, myself, and I.
I only wear clothes because that's what society expects of me. Most days after work I put on my bathrobe and if I do happen to fall asleep in pajamas, it is not uncommon for me to wake up naked. I understand the necessity of clothing, but, seriously, my birthday suit is just way too comfortable to be beat.

I sing. All. The. Time. About everything. I don't speak my sentences, I sing them. You can bet my husband really enjoys that on the daily ;)

I name inanimate objects. Example: My espresso machine is named Max. My car is named Gracie. And my iphone is named Florence. 

I write for my hobby and my living. I'm one of the lucky few English majors who is actually using my degree. Feel very blessed about that.

I think old people are pretty much the cutest thing ever. So cute, that when I'm in close proximity to them, I cry. No, seriously, I do. Evidence in this post.  

Speaking of crying, I also tend to cry pretty much every time I watch Animal Planet.

To this day, Beauty and the Beast and Moulin Rouge are my favorite movies. I guess I like musical. 

I take a bath almost every night. Nothing beats some candles, a good book, and bubbles. Plus, it helps me fall asleep quickly.

I suffer from sympathy pains. If you describe to me any pain you're feeling, I will experience pain in my knees. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN!?!?!

I've had the same best friend for 14 billion years. Okay, like 17. But that's a good run, huh?
And, I'm pretty sure we were the most awkward looking kids growing up.
 
Mullets, oversized tweedy bird shirts, and rollerblades...doesn't get more awkward than that.

I'll stop now because this could easily go on all day.
You're welcome :)

I feel ya on only wearing clothes because you have to. Since it would be a little awkward to run around naked in public I believe the second best thing is yoga pants. Whitney is on to something!
I love to sing! Too bad I suck at it.. haha!
That's crazy about the sympathy pains in your knees! I get really achy when the weather changes.. but I think that's normal when you break bones.
Love the fun facts!

I wake up naked almost every day! I'm always cold, so I bundle up around the house, but at night it's no-holds-barred birthday suit time. Glenn definitely doesn't hate it :)

And I still love that you cry over old people. It cracks me up haha

Beauty and the Beast is probably my favorite Disney movie all time!

I love bubble baths. They really do help you fall asleep quicker! Especially if you get some sleepy time bubbles. =)

This made me laugh! I also named my car, her name is Holly. I never thoght about naming my phone but that's a good idea.. As as you can guess I love the name of your espresso machine since we have a max:) you also gave me a great idea because I have a terrible time falling asleep at night yet love to take a nice bubble bath. I think this will be going into my daily schedule :)

I've been enjoying some of the posts in this link-up.
Our older dog (and now the new puppy) has a collection of stuffed animal toys that I've given names to - Retired Schoolteacher Frog, Slick Sales Associate Fox, etc.

It's great that you can use your degree for work.

I name inanimate objects too - my computer is Julius, my car is Paul, and I used to have a standing wardrobe that I named Sophie! I also like taking bubble baths almost every night, for the same reasons you do - one of the hardest things about being pregnant is that I'm not allowed to do that anymore (apparently hot baths are bad for the baby ...). 8 more weeks!!!

Hoorah for fellow English majors who write for a living and sing about everything :)

LOVE that you have had the same bestie for 17 years. I'm impressed! I don't know many people I'm not related to who I've known for that long!

When it doubt, let it all hang out. Love the nakedness; sometimes, you just gotta wear clothes!

Hope you're loving Seattle! I'm originally from the PNW but now I'm in Texas finishing up grad school. Found you via Whit's link-up!

I am working on my post right now :) These facts are the best thing! It's like an extended "about me" page. PS. I also randomly take picures of cute old people. Bc I think they are too cute not to be photographed. I'm very creepy.
