50 Things Part IV

Welcome to part four!  You can find part 1 here, part 2 here, and part 3 here.
31.      Ventriloquist dummies give me the creeps.  Not the sissy-Jeff-Dunham-type puppets.  The original “Night-of-the-Living-Dummy”-oh-my-gosh-get-that-thing-away-form-me-or-I’m-going-to-cry-type puppets.  I don’t know but there is just something about them that makes me uneasy.  I remember working at the library in college and a guy coming in with one and I had to get up and leave the room.  They’re just creepy!
32.      I have two connections to Hollywood.  My parents went to school with Neil Flynn.   Oh yes… the Janitor from Scrubs, the dad in Mean Girls.  I love to throw that at people!  Also, if you ever saw the movie Simon Birch, a movie from 1998 with Ashley Judd and a cameo with Jim Carrey.  I went to high school with the kid who played Simon.  His mom was my orchestra conductor when I was in 8th grade.
33.      I’m a bit of a hater towards pop-culture.  I don’t get into all the celebrity gossip, who’s pregnant, who broke up-again, who fought with who on Twitter (yeah don’t really understand you, Twitter), who got fat, who’s on what crazy diet, who’s starting a fragrance line that will ultimately smell like a wet dog who rolled in sugar.  (there’s an image for ya)  I get a little tired of news sites being plastered with either negative things or things that don’t matter.  Sorry.
34.      I’m all talk.  If someone (usually someone who budges in line—again, manners! Or someone who hurts a friend or family member) makes me mad, I have a horrible habit of overthinking and over talking.  I’ll threaten to kick them in the shin or “punch ‘em in the nose”, but I’d never actually do it.  I’m actually quite afraid of confrontation in any form.  And if I were ever put in the situation where I’d have to defend myself?  I’d probably go all opossum on them and play dead.
35.      I’m an extremely visual person.  I do great with faces, landmarks, and written instructions.  But if you expect me to remember names after the first time, spoken directions or street names?  Mmm, no. 
36.      I’m very weird about symmetry and pattern.  For example, the other day I was hanging up a new map on my floor.  I had to use both magnets and push pins to hang it.  The colors of the push pins along the bottom and sides of the map had to match.  I’m the same way with spacing and leveling when hanging pictures. 
37.      I always say, I have expensive taste but I don’t have expensive things.  Whenever I’m shopping, I always come across a cute dress, awesome shoes, a really pretty scarf or even home accessories like pillows and rugs.  Then I look at the tag and say, “Of course I like it.  It’s $507,309,843!  Just kidding.  But seriously.  It makes shopping very difficult.
38.      Being a former teacher, I am extremely particular about spelling, grammar, and pronunciation.  Their, there, and they’re.  Seriously people.  He don’t need that.  DOESN’T.  Sher-BET not sher-BERT, w-ash not w-arsh.  Ugh, my children are going to be so annoyed with me.
39.        Whenever I buy a fountain drink, I always push down all the little "bubbles" on the lid.  Sonic's lids are the hardest because there's so many of them.
40.        I'm extremely neat.  Everything in my apartment and on my desk at work has its place.    Dishes in the kitchen sink?  Never longer than a day.  Dirty bathroom sink?  Ew.  Cluttered kitchen table?  Oh nono!  The only habits I can't seem to break are clothes on the floor and shoes EVERYWHERE!  That's right momma, that habit has NOT changed.
