Random Facts About Me

Random facts that you might need to know about me:



If you want to annoy me:


  • Talk negatively about an 'only child'.  (One day I will write my story on this one.)  Remember that EVERY FIRST child is an 'only child' until you have the next child.  Unless they are a twin of course. 
  • Don't use your signal light when you are driving.  GAAAAK!  What on earth do you think they are installed in vehicles for?
  • Wear enough perfume so that you can be smelled from 30 feet away.  Why do I need to still smell you a 1/2 an hour after you left?  Why do I need to smell you at all?
  • Ask to borrow some of my stationary supplies.  My turquoise pen?  Yea, no, I don't think so.
  • Take me shoe shopping.  Shoes?  Really?  You want me to look at shoes?
  • Put me on 'hold' while you talk on your other line.  Who but a Doctor and Batman needs 'call waiting'???  It's the rudest phone feature in the whole world.




If you want to make me smile:


  • Be kind to all living creatures.  Except ugly bugs.  It's OK to kill them.
  • Break out into a song and dance once in awhile.  Especially during work time.
  • Add to your story, embellish it, if it will make it funnier.  Really.  I love it.
  • Ask me about my cat.  Especially during work time.
  • Tell me that I look too young to have a 20 year old son.  Or that Wayne looks way older than me.
  • Take time out of your day to laugh.  Especially during work time.


    I just thought you might need to know these things about me... ;)

    Beautiful shot with sharp details!
    It was fun to read the random facts about you! Some are new for me and I agree with many others, especially that you look too young to have a 20 year old son!
    Anyway, what I do know about you is that your kindness is genuine and you always have a positive word to say. :)

    I hate shoe shopping. Probably because my feet are 6.5D and it's almost impossible to find comfortable yet attractive, affordable footwear. It's an exercise in frustration to do it.

    I don't like ugly bugs, either, but sometimes I get them and set them free. Besides, who defines "ugly?" But spiders...They make me scream. ::Shudder::

    And I don't even drive anymore and those who don't signal p*ss me off. What, is everyone else supposed to be psychic?

    Perfume...I can't smell anymore. Probably from the overabundance of perfumes people douse themselves in. LOL. (No, really, I think it's just allergies.)

    And oh, I hate it when my boss borrows my pens because he never returns them. :-P

    There, I got to rant too. Feels good. Now I'll have some dark chocolate and feel even better.

    I wish you a day filled with smiles and with no annoyances. :-)

    The Smiths said...

    I can pretty much agree with all these things...

    Have a good day!

    Bossy Betty said...

    SO how IS your cat?

    Vicki's Bit-o-earth said...

    Now I know we'd get along famously if we ever met! (:

    S. Etole said...

    Laughing gently with you ...

    Brian said...

    Those were quite interesting Betty. Hey, here in the south when it comes to blinkers, they either don't put them on, or they drive with them on forever, it's some kind of rule!

    Catherine, this post just reinforces what I think of you, and how much fun I think we'd have if we ever went to lunch or were co-worker!! :-)

    koralee said...

    So cute...happy to find out some fun facts about you...I so agree with someone using your turquoise pen..now that would annoy me too. I have to hide my favourite pens around here and tell my girls I have no pens for them to use.

    Hugs.xoxox

    Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

    But, but, embellishing makes my brain hurt! ;)

    Great post, Catherine! And you do look too young to have a 20 year-old! :)

    Tricia said...

    Hallelujah to laughing during work!!! =)

    The flowers are beauties...

    ...Miss...Maddie's... said...

    I'm with you on the perfume thing... what this country needs is more scent free zones!
    And I can definitely relate to the only child quirk, but be prepared because mine moved 2000 miles away for work to Calgary. And oh how I miss her!

    Wonderful photos!!! Great to know a bit more about you. Like you I wish people would use their indicators. Have a great day. HUgs Anesha

    BeadedTail said...

    I so wish I was your neighbor because we'd be fabulous friends! I'm an only child so I would love to hear your story on that one and I could probably add some stuff myself! You look much too young to have a 20 year old son but of course we were both child brides!

    It's me said...

    Owwwwwwwwwww...what a sweet post !!...love you...xxx...

    Becca said...

    Beautiful photos, and love your lists!

    Linens and Royals said...

    I hate call waiting too, I always think whoever I'm talking too hopes there is someone more interesting or important waiting to talk to them. Or maybe I have been boring my listener with too many cat stories again. XX

    Ann said...

    Sing, sing a song, sing out loud sing out....
    oh pardon me I was just singing while I was waiting for my turn in the comment line.
    My but you look lovely today Catherine. You look way too young to have a 20 year old son, I would go as far as saying that you look young enough to be Wayne's daughter.
    How is Banjo doing?
    Ok, I'm done now, have a nice day :)

    Sarah said...

    Good advice about 'work time'! I have been taking it all too seriously...not my cooking work time, though...just the work time that pays the bills! Great photos.

    missing moments said...

    Okay ... now I REALLY like you even more!!

    sharon said...

    I so know what you mean about the perfume. I saying is "what, did you marinate in your perfume? My allergies are bad enough without someone adding to it. Didn't you know that your signal light is only used at Christmas time. That way they can match the twinkling lights on the tree!

    Betsy from Tennessee said...

    Hi Catherine, Things that make me happy are people like you who write such great blog posts... Things that make me unhappy are people who are constantly on their cellphones --mostly texting or even taking a call.... RUDE...

    Hugs,
    Betsy

    Deb said...

    So how is Banjo you young lookin' thing?

    Mariette said...

    Dearest Catherine,

    Well, you summed it up mostly for me too! That is very well said and written down.
    Have a great Friday and a happy weekend 'young looking Mom' and Pet-Parent!

    Love to you,

    Mariette

    Laurie said...

    I agree with it all! Great informative post Catherine, and I did think you were way to young to have a 20 year old son!

    Jen said...

    Love the first photo and did "take time" to laugh at the second to last comment on the list (of course you don't look old enough! :o)

    urban muser said...

    so, how's your cat?
    :)

    Sandra said...

    the perfume is my pet peeve, my number one pet peeve, especailly if it is a wait person, i have had them ruin my meal with their STINK. i am allergic to most heavy perfume and it makes me ill for people to bathe in it and leave a wake of smell behind them as they walk

    the put me on hold is my 2nd pet peeve, i have a friend who calls me to chat, i have never had a conversation that i did not get put on hold a couple of times for her to answer her other line OR her cell phone. another friend we meet for lunch when she comes into town and she will answer her cell phone several times while we have lunch.

    Pamela said...

    OH i love this list and i am smiling from ear to ear right now!!!
    I cannot agree more about the only child thing! The one that kills me is when people say they are selfish or not as social!!!
    I love talking about my cat too!!!

    I will remember to never asking to go shopping for shoes lol !!!

    Pamela xo

    Christine said...

    You are the sister I never had, what are you doing for Thanksgiving?

    Pam said...

    Okay, I was pretty much with you until it came to the shoe shopping.

    Hot Rocks said...

    Ok...I won't invite you shoe shopping.

    Linda R. said...

    I just love reading this post.. to be honest we are a lot alike.. I HATE shopping for shoes. I Have had the same bottle of perfume forever. Cause I don't like to smell it on other people so why would I want anyone to smell it on me. And I love to break out in song every now and then.. It drives my hubby and daughter crazy.. Maybe because its preschool song.. Hey, I sing what I know.. Hee Hee..

    Amazing photo my friend..

    Hugs, Linda

    Every day when I get out on the road, I am muttering to myself ... use your blinkers, that's what they're there for. There's two of them. One for left and one for right. Why does no one listen to me? And since they are installed in each and every vehicle, doesn't it make sense that they should serve a purpose?

    I hate shopping for shoes. In fact, mall shopping doesn't do a whole lot for me.

    Happy day to you! Tammy

    Jaime said...

    Well, at least you didn't kill the ugly bug from your other post!

    Love learning new things about you. :)
