10 Things You Might Not Know

Hi, Siestas! I think I’ve got a fun one! I saw this idea in one of those complimentary airline magazines and showed it to Michelle (who was sitting right next to me) with great enthusiasm and said, “I’m going to do this with the Siestas!” to which she dryly said, “Great, Ma’am.” (I adore her. To say that she has whiplash after going from Washington D.C. to Living Proof Ministries is the understatement of the year. She really doesn’t want to talk a lot about mascara and would not be caught stone-cold-dead in a pair of Capri pants. And never in her entire life has she had to keep a small bottle of anointing oil in her brief case…just in case her boss calls for it. She has also never before had a boss request a photo-shopped picture of herself on a Spiderman costume. A post for another time.)

I’m sorry. I have a little ADD this morning. Back to my idea. It’s not very original but I think it will be a blast. As we’re getting to know one another here in Siestaville, let’s hit the fast forward button. What are 10 things – right off the top of your head – that we would only know about you if we knew you really well? 10 random things ranging anywhere on your personal map that make you a tad distinctive? Or just plain weird? Think quickly. Don’t go for deep. Go for quirky. Don’t try to put them in any kind of order and don’t make them long. Just start typing. I’ll go first to give you the idea.

1. I have an addiction to Ziploc bags.
2. I hate wet socks worse than almost anything.
3. I was the only baby out of 5 born to my mother with no anesthesia. She never forgot it.
4. I wore braces for 12 years. I still often sleep in a retainer.
5. I am a read-aholic. I read over others’ shoulders. I walk the aisle on airplanes to see what others are reading. I read what’s laying on people’s desks during meetings while they think I’m listening.
6. I love Black music.
7. I need slices of cakes and pies to be cut neatly with a sharp knife and not gouged out with a fork. (Nearly just got a shiver at the thought.)
8. My children call me “Doodle.” I no longer remember why. Sometimes just “The Doods.”
9. I am a very slow driver.
10. I’m a go-girl. I love the rush of taking off in an airplane. I smile almost every time.

OK, Siestas! What about you? What are 10 quirky things we might not know?

    JR, Forgiven says:

    1. I added highlights to my hair for the first time last week. That’s the first of any colour treatment – ever.

    2. I am a fast driver; my husband doesn’t speed… cause for contention, but I don’t have a lot to argue with –the law is the law! :S

    3. I (we) planned a wedding in three months… met, dated, got engaged and marred all within 12 months. Whirlwind romance but REAL! God is SO good. 🙂

    4. I grew up a tomboy, spent much of my childhood running around in bare feet, climbing trees, building forts, and so on… my husband grew up much more proper – barely knows what it is like to walk without socks and shoes on!! Just shakes his head at me… 😀

    5. I grew up with the ocean as my backyard (after the big beautiful green grassy back yard that ended at a cliff!)… spent most days of the summer at the beach. I love scenery of any kind, but there is NOTHING like the beach to me. And I miss it so incredibly much and can’t imagine my kids (future hopefully) not growing up near the ocean and beach.

    6. My favorite place to read tends to be the washroom. I think it’s the lack of interruptions. Plus as a kid – being “in the washroom” was an excuse for procrastination! I think it carried over into adulthood…

    7. My feet need to breath at night… rarely INSIDE the blankets. I get claustrophobic if my feet are stuck or tangled in a blanket. My husband finds this entertaining.

    8. I’m the oldest child and the only NOT named after ANYONE (or thing)… sometimes it irrationally feels like I have no roots because of this.

    9. I sometimes long for a nice hot bath… like I won’t survive if I don’t have it… I get it all ready, get in, and… can only handle it for about 5 minutes!

    10. I only heard of Beth Moore this past December… how much I have missed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Definitely a groupie now. 🙂

    6. My husband and I will celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary this year, in December. Where has the time gone? He has put up with a lot.

    Cindy- My Life HIS Story says:

    1. I wasn't 'supposed' to be in special education. I wanted to teach English. God had a plan. 😉 23 years later, I like His idea better. Although I still think 'professional shopper' would have been the best match.
    2. I used to have really bad hair by girl standards when I was growing up. It always had a mind of its own, so when people give me a little snide, "Your hair is always perfect." I think, "You have NO idea, girl."
    3. One of the greatest regrets of my life is not being given a beautfiul singing voice. So I make up for it by using a lot of words…just without music.
    4. One of my biggest pet peeves – people who leave their blinker on after it has fulfilled its purpose.
    5. I have had 12 cars/vehicles since getting my license 29 years ago. Three years is the longest I've ever had one.
    6. I'm completely handicraft disabled. My sisters won't even let me start the projects. They just say, "Here, Cindy, we'll do yours for you." Saves them time later fixing what I've messed up.
    7. I love that my husband calls me 'Doll'.
    8. The paper monster throws up on my desk ALL the time. But no one better touch my piles 'cause I know where everything is.
    9. I hate anything lemon flavored, but love lemons. I hate cherries, but love anything cherry flavored.10. I DESPISE for my feet to be wet so if there is rain in the forecast even if it is 110 degrees – I'm wearing closed-toe shoes.

    1. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE lists like this!
    2. I cannot figure out why so many women are reading this book (…Insecurity) when Beth obviously wrote it especially for me.

    5. Have already bought a lot of books for my someday grandchildren.
    6. I am a scrapbook paper collector. It's probably an addiction.
    7. Didn't know that my husband was not born in Texas until just before we married. I was so upset, it took me a while to get over it. Hours, not days.
    8. I CANNOT stand chicken on the bone. Will not buy it, cook it or eat it. Chicken breasts, trimmed and ready.
    9. Spent 5 minutes yesterday just trying to get all of the blinds in my living room evenly opened.

    oh i wanted to leave this great betty crocker tip for siesta mama and her fettish for neatly cut pies and cakes. if you're like me, you can't wait til the cake or, in my case, brownies to be cool before cutting – use a plastic knife so it won't rip the delicacy into pieces. although to me, it'll eat just same in a jumbled mess on my plate than a neat square/triangle, but to each her own! thought i'd share…hope it helps.

    Okay. I love this post! It is so fun to learn things about people, even if you don't know them…makes you feel like you're not crazy when you read someone else HATES wet socks!

    I have to ask about this, though. What do you mean by "Black" music? I mean, I think I can make some assumptions but why call it "Black" music instead of whatever else you could mean? Hip hop? Rap? Choir-style Gospel music? Country? Classical? Rock? Techno? Who knows because there are so many talented, Black artists in every one of these genres and more.
