you probably didn't know

I'm most self conscious about my eyebrows.

I'm very obsessive about numbers. I can't function until I know everything in my apartment, car, and office is a multiple of 5 or ends in a 3 or 7. There are very few things I want more in this world than a dog. I drink seven glasses of water every day. I miss having a friend nearby to watch bad TV with. I sleep on my stomach, and I hate the feel of a top sheet.

I love Cheez-Its more than is humanly possible. Sometimes I dream about leaving everything and everyone I know behind and reinventing myself in an exotic country; I know I would never be able to leave my family. I can't decide if that makes me feel comforted or just plain sad. I sing jazz songs very quietly in the shower every morning.

I love to flirt, but I only do it with people I'm not interested in. I have pretty eyes, dimples on my cheeks, and small hands. I hate shoe shopping. I've been a spontaneous crier my whole life. I often try to cover this fact up by feigning a sudden attack of sneezes. I chew the insides of my cheeks and lips habitually. I constantly misspell my signature on credit card receipts.

(I stole this idea from This Fish.)

Because of you, I used to be obsessed about the volume of my car stereo. You *always* made sure that the volume number was odd. My stereo volume goes from 0 to 50. I remember many "cruises" where you would reach out and turn it up from 36 to 37. After a while, so did I.

I do not do this anymore.

There is something about cheez-its, isn't there?

Phil - Don't you miss me? Luckily, I still obsess over the car stereo volume enough for the both of us. Being crazy is fun!

Miss Hum - I don't know what it is! I could eat them all day long.

I thought I was the only one capable of spelling my own name wrong. Glad to see I'm in good company.

You and The Daver would get along famously, I think, between your shared love of Cheez Its. We always have many boxes of them in our pantry JUST IN CASE WE RUN OUT.

It's hilarious.

I am very OCD. Not like MONK....but more like you. My TV volume cant be on an odd number unless its a 5. Same with pumping gas...has to be on an even cent.

I miss having friends. Havent really had any since high school...and that is a long time ago.

I love Cheez-Its too! THEY ARE THE BOMB! I prefer the original kind though.

Note to self...if Becky flirts with me...it means she doesnt like me!! LOL

KC - Every single time! I have a very loopy last name, and sometimes I just get lost in the moment, I think.

Becky - The Daver just keeps getting cooler! My favorite kind is white cheddar. If I kept many boxes in my pantry, they wouldn't stay there for very long.

Scott - I'm the same way with the gas cents! Sometimes I have to try several times till I get on a cent that ends in 0, 3, 5, or 7. People must think I'm so weird. Also, I set my alarms (yes, multiple) for odd-numbered times - 6:37 and the like.
