52 Lists week #34: Random Facts About Me

This week's list was quite a challenge for me!  We were to: list random/quirky things about yourself.

Now it's not that I don't have many random/ quirky things to list it was more that I kept thinking what was worth including and what wasn't??

But when morning came I figured I had procrastinated long enough and just needed to start writing something down... so here it is:

1.  I have never liked any picture that has been taken of me.  I am hyper critical of every flaw that the camera shows.  Though years later looking back I usually think I looked pretty good. 
2.  I drink sweetened ice tea-- and LOTS of it every single day.  
3.  I can not stand coffee or hot tea or even mulled cider so I am left floundering in winter for drinks to warm me up.  
4.  Bananas make me gag (I can't even stand the smell of them!)
5.  I don't like marshmallows; at all.  
6.  I am a compulsive neat freak and like to have everything picked up and organized.  I have to fight myself not to keep picking everything up all day long... and yet I do not like to clean (vacuuming/ dusting). 
7.  I never have the same hairstyle for more than a few months.  In fact that profile picture above is no longer accurate; my hair is now so short it barely tucks behind my ears.
8.  I am an artist at heart.  I have done everything from painting to sewing to jewelry making to scrapbooking.  
9.  I lack confidence in myself and my abilities; always have too!
10.  I eat Popsicles; by that I mean I bite into them with my front teeth and happily chomp them down.  
11. I can not fall asleep if the house/room is dark and quiet.  I need ambient light and noise so I usually keep the TV on while I sleep.
12. I do not like animals/ pets unless they are in a zoo or far enough away from me not to rub up against me.  
13.  I am afraid of dogs.
14. I am petrified of heights.
15.  I have never smoked anything nor have I ever been drunk.  I could probably count the number of alcoholic drinks I've had this year on one hand.  
16.  I don't like crowds and find that this is something that is getting worse as I get older.
17.  I have never used an ATM machine
18.  I love, love, love to read... but don't enjoy reading non- fiction. 
19.  I am a control freak.  I actually get nervous and feel sick to my stomach when things are beyond my control.  
20.  I started dating my husband when I was 16.

  1. Fascinating list! Several of those things are very similar to me, too. The one I found most interesting was that you've never used an ATM.

    1. LOL! I am so anti- technology. Really I just hardly use cash...

  2. Loved your list and I also share your fear of heights. Put me near a ledge and I freak out. Some escalators freak me out too because I feel like I'm going to fall backwards at any moment.

  3. I've also never used an ATM machine (or a debit card)! On the rare occasion that I need cash, I take what I need out of my husbands wallet.

  4. I'm fascinated that you've never used an ATM! That's pretty unique in today's world.

    1. I know.... Definitely a bit weird of me.

      Delete
  5. As a former bank teller, half of me is shocked, and the other half of me, not so much. I hated servicing the ATM, and I hated how people relied on the ATM to balance their accounts (don't do that, by the way) but for some reason I never did mind to walk out and show someone how to activate a debit card or use the ATM. So I know there are people out there adverse to them, LOL!

    1. I can't say I'm anti ATM, I just have never felt the need to use one.

  6. Very unique that you haven't used an ATM :) I could probably count the number of alcoholic beverages I've had in all my life on my hands--and even then I can't remember that I've ever finished one -- just tasted, sipped. Great fun list!

    1. I can only finish an alcoholic drink if I can't taste the alcohol. :)
