10 Things About Girl Friday You Never Knew You Always Wanted to Know

I have been meaning to update, but work and life has been nuts.  I still haven’t had the chance to take pictures of my place since the latest addition of a dining room table and new kitchen floor and baseboards.  I swear I’ll get to it soon.

Some things to chew on while you wait…Ten very random facts about yours truly.

1.  I am a total foodie, but I rarely like my own cooking and I derive almost no joy from cooking.  I really just like the pictures in cookbooks.  My mom gives me cookbooks every year for Christmas and they suck because I can’t even use them for entertainment purposes because they just have text, no pretty pictures.  I guess it’s because the food is ugly?  These books have dishes with names like Cheesy Burger Divan Pie.  I would never eat something like that…

2.   I steal pens. I order them for my desk at work and somehow they all end up in my purse.  If I don’t steal them first, annoying coworkers will steal my pens and leave me with just the half-chewed pencils (and it’s not me that chews pencils, I swear!).  I also steal notepads.  I have at least ten in my house from various offices I used to temp at and my current job, too.  What can I say?  I never know when an idea will strike!

3.  I am terrible at remembering people’s birthdays unless they are in the month of May. I could know you for ten years and only vaguely remember the month.  I will check my old cell phone bills and or credit card bills to figure out the exact day if possible.

4.  I kill plants.  I can’t keep anything alive.  I over water, I under water, etc.

5.  I am a stationary whore.  I can never bear to use the last card from a set either.

6.  In elementary school we had to participate in the May Dance.  Each grade had to learn a traditional square or folk dance.  The topper was doing the dance around the May Pole with the ribbons in sixth grade.  It’s that time of year so I guess I’m all sentimental.

7.  I live by the beach but I don’t remember the last time I walked in the sand or got in the water.

8.  I love watching Gilmore Girls, but I hate Rory.  I’m not really sure I have ever liked her…She makes me feel very unaccomplished.  And when I whine I don’t get all doe-eyed, I just look like a brat.

9.  I iron my clothes, pair all my socks, and make my bed with military corners.

10.  I am only nervous right before an interview, and when I used to dance I got nervous right before I went stage.  For about 15 minutes I am full of nervous energy, but then…it’s show time.  Hopefully today’s interview won’t make a liar out of me.  It’s an interview at the main administration building for the university.  Wish me luck.
