Stories That Make Me Laugh: Jean Edition

Wednesday, February 18, 2009

This story is far too amusing to keep to myself... so even though it is highly embarrassing, I have been feeling the need to share it with anyone who will listen (or in this case read)! Yesterday I had the day off due to the fact that the kiddos are on vacation, and so I made a late afternoon trip to the grocery store. Since I was meeting up with my best friend for dinner that night I decided I would put on one of my nice pairs of jeans. All was good... or so I thought... and so off I headed to the grocery store. About half way through my shopping I started noticing this odd feeling on the back of my leg. It felt as though there was something wet on my pants that had soaked through to my leg. Very casually I brushed off the back of my thigh yet I could feel no wet spot. This cycle of me feeling like my leg was wet, followed by me attempting to "brush it off" with no luck, went on for about fifteen more minutes. Finally I gave up, payed for my groceries, and headed home. Once at home I parked outside and started to unload the groceries. All of a sudden my leg felt extremely cold, and it was then that I discovered what the "wet" spot was on my pants. Turns out there was a huge... and I mean HUGE (see the above picture)... hole on the seat of my jeans. Apparently I had been walking around the entire grocery store like this... with my underwear exposed to the world. 

Things That I Find Interesting: 25 Things Edition

Thursday, February 5, 2009

As if Facebook wasn't addicting enough, the recent craze of the "25 Random Things" survey has made it even more of a black hole. I can honestly say that I love reading these things. I don't usually participate in these sorts of surveys, even though I get great joy out of reading them, but I thought this time I would give it a try. The concept behind this survey was easy enough, and everyone else's answers were so varied, informative, and enjoyable, that I thought I would throw some of my random fun facts out there too! I am utterly surprised at how quickly this survey has taken over our lives. Suddenly I find myself getting tagged left and right, and it is almost a game to see who will fill out the survey next. Every time I sign onto Facebook I get excited to see what new silly facts I can learn about my friends. As I stared at a blank page, 25 things seemed daunting to me at first. I really wanted to think of random facts that most people wouldn't know about me, and this seemed almost impossible. However, once I got started I kept thinking of more and more, and by the end I was sort of sad the survey was over. So here you go... 10 more for you to enjoy!

1. I hate lipstick and almost never wear it. Instead I usually just opt for chapstick... or if I must, lipgloss. 

2. I still consider myself a dork, but I can honestly say that I was by far my dorkiest in middle school, when I sported not only a perm, but bangs, glasses, and braces to boot.

3. I get scared incredibly easily (and unfortunately quite frequently too). Oddly, I can also scare myself. 

4. I love being creative, and thinking up new projects to start. The only problem is that I take after my dad, and somehow always manage to never quite finish any of these said projects. 

5. My parents painted our house at some point while I was away at college. I still think that my house is a bluish grey, and will tell people this. In all actuality my house is really a beige color... and I stare at it every day since I currently still live at home.  

6. I love fires in fireplaces, and cool breezes through open bedroom windows on warm nights.

7. I eat frozen peas like they are candy... they taste amazing this way, and I've been a huge fan since I was a baby.

8. I think that spoons are the best utensil ever... especially baby spoons (which can instantly turn almost any food into a comfort food for me).

9. I hate bananas, I like to peel them though.

10. I have always wished that I liked jello and that I knew how to play the piano.
