Sleepy Jane tagged me and I heart her so this is for her!

 Ten Random Things About Moi’.

  • Before I go to bed I must drink a glass of water, flip my pillow, and straighten the sheets. I am fully aware that this is a compulsive behavior.
  • When I do sleep I must either a) be on my side with a “huggy” pillow or b) be flat on my back with my arms over my head. Strange, I know.
  • When I was little I was obsessed with The Sound of Music and I was convinced that the Von Trapp family came to live in the woods behind my house when they fled Austria and the Nazis. I would go looking for them on a weekly basis.
  • When I was seven my Mom had me try out for a talent show. When I was performing in the show the music to my song malfunctioned and they left me standing on a stage, in a spotlight, in front of thousands of people, for a good ten minutes while they fixed the sound system. I still to this day hate to be in front of an audience alone.
  • If I could choose one celebrity and only one to be with, it would be Christian Bale, always Christian Bale. Any other Newsies fans out there?
  • When I graduated High School I was given a full ride scholarship to the state school of my choice- which I turned down. Hmmm.
  • I love Starbucks, but I don’t drink coffee.
  • My dad wanted to name me Ramonda Lynn, but my Mom refused for fear that I would be called “Ramada Inn” by mean classmates.
  • I must take two showers a day. Again, obsessive compulsive I know.
  • One time my aunt tried to set me up with a guy from her church and he turned out to be my third cousin. Talk about weird!

Consider all of your lovely selves tagged!

OK, that is ten things about me that you probably could have lived without knowing, but I know that you are all just dying to know random stuff about me or else your day will not be complete. (Extreme sarcasm – of course!)

  1. Cute, I love this idea! I’m also crazy compulsive about straightening the sheets before I sleep. The boy is a crazy sleeper, so when he comes to see me I take the sheets off of the bed and we just sleep under a comforter so the sheets won’t bug me. 🙂
