25 (er, 26) random facts about myself

ok, i wrote this on facebook and my close friends really got a kick out of it, so I thought you guys might enjoy it...i finally gave in to the whole 25 random facts about me thing after my old roommate Kayt gave in, and she barely goes on facebook.  here it is:

25 Random Things

Rules: Once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it's because I want to know more about you.

(To do this, go to “notes” under tabs on your profile page, paste these instructions in the body of the note, type your 25 random things, tag 25 people (in the right hand corner of the app) then click publish.)

1. I can lick my elbow. It's supposed to be impossible.

2. I'm allergic to cats. If I'm exposed for too long, the whites of my eyes turn into this jelly-like substance, and when I look from left to right/up and down, my irises run/push into the whites of my eyes. It's awesomeeee.

3. I pluck my armpit hairs, then shave for extra smoothness. I would rather pluck my armpit hairs than my eyebrows. I'm sure none of you wanted to know that.

4. I've never successfully watched Aladdin or most of the Disney movies, but I love Disney.

5. I enjoy people watching. But then again, everyone does. My favorite was in high school, where we sat in Aco's parking lot and predicted what cars would come, who would come out, and what they would be wearing. Ex. We'd guess a purple or tan Buick or Crown Victoria...Old man with a tan cabby with a matching tan jacket...sometimes accompanied by an old woman with a plastic hair cover. We were correct probably 4/5 times.

6. I'm never fully happy with anything I produce/write...there is something that I always wish I would have changed or done better. But that's the nature of writing/producing/directing...

7. I watched an entire Asian soap opera series all day with my parents once...and enjoyed it, from the bad voice dubs - Thai to Cambodian, the English subtitles, and the terrible resolution...

8. I secretly wish I could get a bowl cut and straight bangs but I would only enjoy it for a second...the moment where I would laugh at how ridiculous my bowl cut was...then I would cry and debate whether I could pull off a weave.

9. Sometimes my mind goes crazy when I'm in creative mode...too many things float around at once...I have to learn how to focus. But sometimes I go blank and that's fun too, having absolutely nothing on my mind.

10. I have a collection of posters consisting of Doogie Howser - M.D., Tom Cruise, and Gerard Butler all hanging in my room...thank you, Justine.

11. My sisters and cousins first got me drunk in 8th grade at my grandma's 90th birthday party (we slip and call it grandma's wedding sometimes). Everyone was confused because there were 5 of us wearing the same purple chinese dress, donning the asian glow.

12. After I drink lots of coffee, my pee starts to smell like it. It freaks me out because my pee smells like something I enjoy drinking.

13. I hate school. Really, it's ruining the fun-ness of college life. I think I had more worthwhile memories from back in high school because school wasn't a ***. Half of what I'm doing in college is not teaching me anything useful in life but is required for some crappy reason.

14. I love these words/phrases: repulsive, honestly, dude, wiggin' out, bah, buddy, the childrennn, ridiculous, crap, ***, and *** it.

15. I got suspended in 6th grade for a whole day once. I took an Accelerated Reading Test for Marko and this kid named Nathan tattled on me. I will never forgive him for that.

16. I don't want to grow up. No really, I don't want to wear normal clothes. I want to wear my sweet gold, pink, and yellow Nike Dunk Lows, a yellow (not maize) MI Tee, and black leggings for the rest of my life. I hope I get a job where I don't have to wear a fancy dress pants and belt, because I tend to actually go to the bathroom later than I should, and I would probably piss my pants a lot if I had to wear a belt. I think that was more than one fact.

17. When I grow up, I want a husband (duh), 2 or 3 children, a Yorkie named Cornchip, a walk-in closet filled with shoes, an island in my kitchen, a Lisa-room filled with pillows and lined with dry-erase boards, and a garage so I never have to scrape snow off my car ever again. Oh, and a really big backyard.

18. I'm extremely lazy. I hate walking, because I start to sweat and I really hate sweat when I'm not intentionally making myself sweat (ex: when exercising).

19. I really enjoy the Disney Channel, which I mentioned before. I know a lot of people do but I feel like I'm way too old to sincerely enjoy it. I think it's the fake innocence that gets me. I think my roommates know I secretly watch it because sometimes I turn off the TV and forget to switch the channel, so when they turn it on it's still on the Disney Channel.

20. I'm really clean (as in not dirty), but really messy with my room and clothes, but really organized when it comes to school. I don't know why I'm like that.

21. I'm a very, very, sensitive person. I cried while watching Animal Planet because there was this wolf thing that ate a baby duck looking thing. The baby bird/duck/thing with wings was so helpless, I couldn't watch it.

22. Sometimes I get in a funk and am moody. I have a bad temper and am snappy, but only with my family. But I also cuddle with my family. Well, with Melinda because she is an incestuous *** with small hands and cold feet.

23. I have a receding hairline, a nonexistent bridge, no eyelids (creases), and half the hair on my arms don't grow.

24. I am a very secretive person. I'm sure all of you know that. I'm afraid of letting things out because I don't like to be judged. But then again, I am telling you these 25 facts...I'm working on it.

25. I love to gossip and go to small get-togethers - I miss freshman year of college, when our room was dubbed the "dirty room" because all we would do was gossip about the dirty things people were doing in our hall. We would also spy on people, but that's another fact that I am not willing to fully reveal. I'm a stalker. Oh and I love drunken shenanigans with my buddies...

26. I just realized Kayt did 26 random facts so I guess I will too because the number is typed out already. Oh, I will make this one about her. When Kayt and I met/chatted via AIM for the first time, I knew we would get along just fine after two instances: the first being when I asked if she was religious and she made a joke about putting jesus and mary statues above both our beds, and the other was when she asked me a blunt question in the middle of the night while in our lofts...

I love this, Lisa, made my morning! Despite the fact I am now trying to lick my elbow (you are indeed gifted and exceptional...). I'm going to see if we can't appeal to all RED authors to put their 25 up. How cool would it be to have a full set?

This "25 things" has been blowing up on Facebook the past week. I started writing one, except then a few of my friends starting posting fake 25 things to make fun of everyone and get people to stop... so I haven't posted mine. xD Maybe I'll post it here and just not on facebook. lol.

#4 - Sarah and I JUST watched Aladdin 2 days ago. And if you watched it as a child and then came back to it as a teenager, it is twice as good because you now understand some of the things they talk about such as "Praise Allah!" or "Wake up and smell the hummous!" xD SO GREAT.
