Day 01 - 15 "interesting" facts

07/31/2010 - Counts as recent enough for me. Picture is shockingly (for me) completely unedited, so ignore all zits, dark shadows and whatnots. This was taken during my family's trip to Colorado. Thanks go to JP, who took the photo, and my grandma, Jo Ann Poulsen, who taught me how trick the camera into making me look skinnier than I really am.

I don't know if there are 15 interesting facts about me, but we'll see. So bear with me if they are uninteresting. 

  1. I go through stages with clothing. When I was younger I hated jeans and tennis shoes, and now that's all I wear. 
  2. I love berries, really really love blueberries, raspberries, and salmonberries. I wish they were more available and affordable.
  3. I don't like pancakes, except for my late Grandpa's blueberry sourdough pancakes, which are amazing. 
  4. I can't stand to take test with my hair down, when I'm trying to think I find it very distracting to have my hair on my neck and face. 
  5. I think the most beautiful part of the body is either the arbor vitae or the optic chiasma. (I tried to find pictures, but I couldn't find a good one on Google.)
  6. I love being in the mountains. 
  7. I hate the winter, I hate the snow, I hate the bitter stinging winds, and I hate the gray, sunless skies.
  8. I am absolutely terrified of talking on the phone. I have mini panic attacks every time I have to call someone. I'd rather text, or talk in person.
  9. I am horrible at updating my blog, but I love reading others blogs. (Hey it didn't say it had to be 15 facts you didn't know, so I can include a really obvious one on here.)
  10. I think my daughter is the cutest thing I've ever seen. (The second cutest thing is baby monkeys, which my daughter has been known to resemble, so she's even cuter.)
  11. My husband thinks I'm an amazing cook. I think I'm a horrible cook. I have like 10 things that I ever cook, and I just recycle through them. And they are all just recipes that I follow the directions for, so it's not really to my credit if it does taste good, it's be the inventor of the recipe.
  12. We need more bookshelves in our place. We already have a 5-shelf bookcase, a 3-shelf bookcase, plus one shelf on the computer desk, and one shelf on the entertainment center that have books on them, and we still have more books than space. Of course part of the problem is that the lower shelves are really underutilized, thanks to the subject of #10. 
  13. I lose pencils at an alarming frequency. Taking a guess, I'd say I lose at least 1 pencil a week, sometimes more. It's very frustrating. (Shout out to my amazing aunt, G.P. who once gave me an amazing gift of a giant pack of mechanical pencils, actually that was only part of the gift - the rest was pretty cool too. But thanks, that pack has been my lifesaver.)
  14. The color of my laptop, and that it has a cool texture, so I can run my fingers across it and make noise were large factors in picking the laptop I did. 
  15. I got my laptop this year. My husband tried to tell me that I should use a laptop for years, and I resisted. But I finally had to succumb and admit, that I could really really use one, and it's made things so much easier.
Woohoo! I didn't think I'd be able to come up with 15, I was struggling there at the beginning.
