8 Random Things

I've been tagged to list eight random things about myself. I have no idea what I will write here.

  1. I really don't enjoy wearing skirts/dresses. I'm a pants girl all of the way. I didn't even enjoy sleeping in nightgowns growing up. I had to wear shorts under the gown to feel comfortable. Maybe this means I need security and protection from the "drafts" in the world....who knows...
  2. I like movies with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan in them. Aren't they just cute together??? I also think I would really like having Denzel Washington as a friend. I think he must really be a cool guy. And, yes, I think he's good looking too.
  3. I've enjoyed every stage of life. I've been fearful about moving into each stage, but once I'm there, I have a good time. The one stage I went into without any fears was marriage. Luckily, this stage should last a long time. :)
  4. No matter how hard I try, when I use something with bleach in it, I end up "spotting" what I'm wearing. I've learned to put on a t-shirt and shorts I don't care about as often as possible when using these products. I have salvaged some black and navy t-shirts with a permanent marker. Brilliant, I know.
  5. No matter if we have money saved up and Michael is totally fine with me making a purchase, it is so very hard for me to spend $100 or more on something. I'm talking about contacts and curtains. I put it off month after month. I'll buy my contacts this weekend. I bought curtains/pillows/table decor earlier this month. It was hard to be at the counter to make the purchase, but I LOVE the results!
  6. I'm bow-legged and pigeon-toed. Maybe that's why I like pants.
  7. I've had some of the greatest roommates ever. I've only spent a few months living by myself in my lifetime.
  8. I've never ridden in a taxi. I don't think I would know what to do or how to pay. Do people always have cash on hand and just lose the change? What if your ride was $5 and you only had a twenty? Do you get cash back?? I better never head out to NY. Wait, Michael takes a taxi sometimes....I should ask him.

I love Meg Ryan and Denzel Washington too. I forget what movie I saw not too long ago with Denzel but he was really foul mouthed and I was so disappointed. It was like "oh, I don't really know you." I did ride in a taxi but Steve paid so really can't give you an answer there. I have no doubt that you would be a great roomate and friend as you are just too sweet!

I also think Denzel is attractive. I also think he's just a good guy. It's so funny you mentioned the taxi. I purposefully got in a taxi in NYC just to have driven in one. Although I only went 3 blocks. I was so nervous paying!

taxi driving: yes you get change back.
:)
I can't believe you've never ridden in a taxi!

Oh, and I buy my contacts as I need them. I wear my glasses more than contacts, so buying a year supply at a time is a waste for me. I think I spend about $25 or $30 a box, which will last me about 6 months or more!
