I Bet You Literally Had No Idea...

As if I would miss a linkup party, or any party for that matter, I'm linking up with Helene to bring you 11 things you probably didn't know about me! 



1. I hate holes
This is number one for a reason. Holes are without a doubt my biggest problem in this world. I wouldn't say i'm scared of holes, it is more like I have a serious allergic reaction to holes. I'm sure you're staring at your computer screen thinking, bitch be crazy, but hear me out. 

Did you ever play Super Mario Kart? You know when you're on that dirt track, and a mole jumps out of a hole in the ground? Then it gets stuck on the front of your car and makes a horrific high-pitched squeal. It would then stay there until you could find a body of water to wash him off?

Well, that is the root of my problem with holes, but only certain holes. 
*Cue everyone pointing to every hole in the room and asking, "What about that hole?" "Or that one?" "Is that hole ok?"* 

If I see a hole that might have something behind it that I can't see, I'm going to break out into hives and my skin will turn beat red. I'm starting to itch just talking about this so I'll have to move on now. 

2. Never say the word embedded around me
Why? Please refer to bullet point number 1. 

Alright cool, now that you guys think I'm a nutcase....

3. I always wanted to be a Real Estate Agent
Most children dream about being a singer or actress, but not me. My childhood dream? Real Estate Agent. I don't feel like this dream is dead. I mean, I watch Million Dollar Listings every single Wednesday, so I'm pretty much a broker already. 

4. I have road rage
And a very bad potty mouth from the hours of 5pm - 5:45pm Monday - Friday. 

5. I think about my next meal while I'm currently eating
CB and I will be at Waffle House and I'll ask him what he'd like to do for dinner. That question is generally answered with a mouth full of hash browns and a furrowed brow. 

"Oh right, sorry. I realize we're currently eating breakfast."
*7 minutes pass*
"So what did you want to do for lunch today?"

6. I have FOMO
I cannot stand to miss out on things. I could go to 100 parties with the exact same people at  the exact same place, but if on the 101st party I couldn't go??  Well, I would feel like my world was crashing down on me and I might never smile again. 

7. Moes beats Chipotle every time
I'll eat Chipotle, don't get me wrong, but Moes is life. There is only one Moes in Dallas and it is located within walking distance from my apartment. Coincidence? I think not. 

8. My dogs are not trained, at all
I simply don't know how to train a dog. Veenie jumps. She growls at strangers. She is territorial. Gee isn't much better, and barks his face off anytime another dog walks by the window. I am totally lost on how to train a dog. I've read article after article, dog training simply isn't my calling in life. 

9. I could live off cauliflower 
There is a Hidden Valley Ranch commercial where this girl is in a movie theatre with what looks to be a popcorn bucket. They zoom in and you realize it's actually a big bucket of cauliflower with ranch dressing. I find myself envying that girl and the life she leads. 

10. I'm obsessed with properly using the word, "literally"
Like the rest of America, I abuse the word "literally." When someone uses it properly, I want to hug them and tell them how smart they are. It's a tough word to use correctly, so I'm genuinely impressed when it happens. I'm fascinated by that word. I literally can't even with that word. Similarly, I have the same obsession with making and recognizing a really good pun. 

11. When I'm petting something really cute, I unconsciously bite down really hard
I can't help but clench my jaw the whole time I'm petting a puppy. I then realize what I'm doing, and that my teeth my break. That's weird. I shouldn't have said typed that one out loud.


OK BYE.

  2. I legit thought number 1 said "I hate hotels", so I'm reading the explanation and I'm so confused what hotels you are going to that have holes everywhere. SIGH. Is it Friday yet?

  5. I'm with you on #4. It's bad. I'm constantly yelling at other drivers.

  6. I have serious road rage too! It's bad. I yell, I give the finger, I give the evil eye.

  7. I remember when we got wine at that place in uptown and you told me you hole theory and i was like... i knew i liked you. quirky girls are the best- right? i don't understand how in the world to train a dog. so sue me!

  8. I do the teeth thing too - definitely not alone in that!

  9. I'm fascinated by your phobia of holes. I hate when peek at me in any way - think peeking between your fingers at a baby. I'm also guilty of planning my next meal while eating my current one. It's a bit of a problem, but I definitely plan my day around my meals. Sorry not sorry. Also, I can't believe there is a person that prefers Moe's or Qdoba to Chipotle. Blaspheme!

  10. #8 and #10 are so me! Great post!

  11. I've never had Moe's, but one just opened up by my house. I'm excited to try it. Maybe we'll have to start a blogger revolution.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Haha I totally do the thinking about the next meal while I'm eating the current one thing. What can I say, I love to eat! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Im right there with you with #5. I will be eating lunch thinking about what I want for dinner in the next 2-3 hours. I love eating, it's a hobby. I swear. Now, I need to taste this Moe's you speak of because I'm die hard chipotle fan. Been one for years. :D

    ReplyDelete
  14. Ok Moe's beating Chipotle is pretty bold, and I get where you're coming from because they have queso and Chipotle does not, but if Chipotle had queso I'd say it'd win out every time.

  15. My dogs are not trained either. We have three big dogs and they are all, um...independent. Yeah. That's it ;)

  17. I think about dinner before I've eaten breakfast. I like to plan my meals out in advance so I don't end up eating pasta for lunch and pizza for dinner.

  18. Don't even get me started on the word 'literally.'

    I am not even kind of impressed by Chipotle.

    And I totally want cauliflower.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Chipotle is my jam... soooo... I'm not sure we can be friends ;) But, then again, I have never experienced this "Moes" that you speak of. I am currently working with a Real Estate agent who reminds me so very much of a character from The Book of Mormon (the play). If he can do it, you can do it!

  20. You are NOT alone on the dog training. If I had an obscene amount of money, I would pay a disgusting amount of money to have someone train them for me. Not my forte.

    ReplyDelete
  21. This has been such a great linkup! I LOVE learning about my favorite bloggers, and man did I learn a lot about you. I have about 1000 follow up questions about your phobia of holes. You should really write a whole post about it, i'm not the only curious one.

  22. i want to start a support group for dog owners with untrained dogs. did you adopt yours or get from breeder (no judgment either way). i adopted my dog when he was 1.3 months and had been returned to the pound after his previous owners had him for 4 months and said he was 'food and toy aggressive' (they didnt tell me this until i already had my heart set on him) . . . well he was fine for the first few months, but now he's crazy in other ways and mostly i just dont want him to jump on people. -_-

  23. I literally don't have trained dogs either

    ReplyDelete
  24. Haha this is such a cute post! I love it. Girl, I have serious FOMO too. All the time. It's so unhealthy!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Your reason for not liking holes is completely legit. If something looks out of place or creepy, I start feeling really paranoid. Then again, if something is out of place or not straight I have to fix it or it will bother me for the entire time I am there. Being a real estate agent would be fun! It took me until this comment to finally figure out what FOMO meant. Hah.

  26. I found a hole in my sweater today. I know it's from one of my cats. I love them so much, I can't stay mad...but dang, that hole!!! There's a cauliflower recipe on pinterest that takes something healthy and makes it no longer healthy...but it's sooooooo good.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh man we are so much alike! I do the clamped-down-jaw thing when I pet cute dogs and Moes trumps Chipotle any day for me! I actually like Moes and Qdoba better than Chipotle...but don't tell my hipster coworkers. :) Happy Friday!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Moe's over Chipotle???? Oh friend, we have a problem!!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. hahah hilarious! I can relate to too many of these :P don't tell anyone...

    ReplyDelete
  30. I miss Moe's! Charlottesville doesn't have one, but we did just get a second Chipoltle so there's that. I was such a frequent Moe's visitor while at Tennessee - shout out to The Strip! - that they knew my order when I walked in.

    And my dog? Totally not trained either. He's actually kind of a jerk, but he's cute and I love him and if I don't care that he insists on being the center of attention, then I don't think anyone else should either.

  31. I literally can't stand how liberally Australians use "literally"

  32. Haha I am with you on the childhood dreams. Mine was flight attendant. But alas, I am not tall enough so I couldn't be one if I wanted to!

  33. Cauliflower is amazing and I guess I need to try Moes!

  34. I definitely think about my next meal while I am eating too. I am obsessed. I'm in grad classes at night and always eat before class. However, a lot of the other students eat in class. Makes me daydream about the food I can eat later. I end up eating a second dinner around 10pm!

    Love your post!

  35. So that last thing? It's called cute aggression and it's a real thing. I do it often. It also includes wanting to squeeze all puppies and pinch all chubby baby faces. You are not alone.

    ReplyDelete
  36. You're awesome! I agree, I'd eat Moes every day over Chipotle and I'm always thinking about my next meal {it's a true problem}! Xo, Stephanie
