The Randomness of Lu: 15 facts

My friend Megan over at Kitschy Suburbia tagged me for a fun little fact session! The rules: share 15 facts and then tag 5 other bloggers. Easy enough. :)

1. I have never broken a bone. Honestly. And I've only ever had 5 stitches, thanks to a baby born with his hands over his head. Blech. Sorry, that's gross even to me...

2. Aqua is my current favorite color. Seriously, I want to plaster it everywhere because I love it so much. I'm currently crushing on these lovelies from Simple Serendipity (my newest etsy fave):

3. I am terrified of my garbage disposal. I will only run it when I have to, and I NEVER put my hand down that side of the sink, even when the disposal isn't running.

4. I was in college before I realized that you don't have to save the twist ties from bread bags -- you can BUY them at the store!


5. I can't cook scrambled eggs or that coconut frosting for German chocolate cake. The scrambled eggs end up burned and the frosting ends up as scrambled eggs. **To be truthful... I am learning how to cook scrambled eggs. I have managed to make edible scramblish eggs twice now.

6. I have never gotten a grade other than an A in any school course. But I did FAIL my swimming lessons as a kid.

7. I use vinegar for pretty much everything. You know the dad from My Big Fat Greek Wedding? His Windex is my vinegar. Laundry, dishes, household cleaning... everything except drinking it. :)

8. I am a font junkie -- over 700 fonts installed on my computer. And more every day. Yesterday I downloaded about 15. The Mr was concerned until I told him they were all free!

9. Pretty much anything I know how to do domestically (cooking, cleaning, sewing, etc), I learned from my mom or taught myself. Mostly learned from my mom... So I don't know a lot of the fancy words for things... I just do them. And every once in a while, I do them right. :)

10. I have been reading The Screwtape Letters by CS Lewis for almost a year now. I love the book but for some reason I just can't read it quickly like I read other books.

11. Yo hablo espanol... I took Spanish classes for 8 years from middle school through college. Not that I've retained much of the language since then. :(

12. I love getting new socks. Even if they are just plain white. Love love love.

13. My feet are always cold. Even in the summer. Even when I am wearing new socks. :)

14. One of my favorite movies of all time is Remember the Titans. You just can't beat Denzel. 

15. I can trace my family genealogy back to Adam. Or pretty close, at least to Noah, I think. Or some waaaay-back-when king who was descended from them. Thanks to many dedicated family researchers!


And now I tag some new(ish) friends who I want to learn more about:

Ahhh! I was reading your list and kept thinking "Me too! Me too!" So basically I could just copy your list on my page, but I won't because that would be creepy.

Dusty said...

You've never gotten lower than an A?? The more I learn about you, the more insuperior I feel! :-/

Jocelyn Christensen said...

If i had a garbage disposal...I too would be afraid of it.

Megan Harmeyer said...

I'm glad you participated! You and I are pretty similar. The sock thing - I have a TON! Before nail polish, I was know before my socks. I've been looking for a free font site - thankyouthankyouthankyou!

Brandy@YDK said...

what a fun list. even if you started with the stitch thing. shudders.

Stuff by Ash said...

Have you ever tried making scrambled eggs in the microwave? I thought I was a font junkie, but you waay beat me! Fun facts. Thanks for sharing.

Andi @ Jane of all crafts said...

HAHA!! Love this! We have a lot in common except the whole A in every class...impressive! Can't wait to share my 15 things. Thanks for tagging me!

Gwen @ Gwenny Penny said...

This was a lot of fun to read. Like a lot of people before me have said, we have a lot in common. I've never broken a bone. I'm afraid of garbage disposals (even though I don't have one). I can't cook scrambled eggs (but I don't like them, so no big deal). I didn't get any grade lower than an A until my junior year of college (and even then it was only two Bs). And I failed swim lessons as a kid, too!

Nick and Keira said...

How neat! I love learning things about you! It's funny how there are some things that we are exactly alike on, and things that are totally different! (I personally don't know how to cook an egg any other way than scrambled--it's the only way I'll eat them!)
Vinegar is one of the best ways to clean things (and it's "environmentally friendly" without paying a fortune for some company's 'green cleaners'.)

Nick and Keira said...

Oh, and C.S. Lewis is in my top 3 favorite authors, always has been. I love "The Screwtape Letters".

Amy @ Increasingly Domestic said...

Okay, I finally did it:)

So I am terribly sad! I wanted to buy the earrings for you as a surprise and they are sold! Seriously makes me very sad!
