Seven things you probably don't know about me:

1. I am deathly afraid of unnaturally large human forms... stems from an unfortunate "Santa-at-Ala-Moana" incident when I was three. ;) Now it's a phobia. Statue of Liberty, Mount Rushmore,... you name it - my palms get sweaty, I get dizzy, and I almost pass out. (Embarrassing, but true...)

2. I almost NEVER watch tv - I have one, it's just never on. When I do, it's once a year and I can sit there for hours on end watching a "What Not to Wear" or "John & Kate Plus 8" marathon and then I'll be good - tv-wise - for another year. ;)

3. I'm not even 5 feet tall. Even saying that I'm 4' 11" is stretching it. ;)

4. I collect plush shelties - and over the years my collection has grown to over 2 dozen from as far away as Japan. :) My collection really grew after Sydney passed away. Lots of friends gave me plush shelties when they found out - which I thought was really sweet.

5. Although I travel a lot, I HATE flying. I cannot sit in the window seat of a plane because looking down weirds me out. It's funny for the amount of flying that I do, I still feel this way.

6. I never cry when I'm sad. I only cry when I'm really, REALLY frustrated or when something is incredibly touching.

7. Up until recently I had clothes in my closet ranging in size from 3 to 13 and in the ten years that I've been living in my house, I've fit into all of them at one time or another - except the size 5s - I was a size 5 for like, maybe a week. ;) I have bagged and given away the 3s and 11s and 13s, but are holding on to the 9s and the bigger 7s "just in case" my diet slips... :P

Haha!! Looking down really does weird me out, though. :) I have to sit in an aisle seat... :P

Haha!! I've given away my size 3s because I will never be 96 pounds again, and... I've accepted that. ;) I gave away my 11s and 13s because I NEVER want to have to fit into them again! I'm thinking about giving away the 9s too... but I want something to fall back on in case I fall off the diet wagon this year. Mark can't understand why I have so many clothes. What he doesn't understand is that only a very small portion of them actually fit! ;)
there would never be anyone for me but you: milkjessnic85 on January 13th, 2009 10:22 pm (UTC)
Oh, what a fun read! We might have to do this one ourselves... :)

I really am surprised to hear how much you hate to fly!! And #3... well, we knew that already. ;) :D But I honestly have to say that probably the most shocking thing I've ever learned about you is that you've never seen "Titanic." :P ;) I think both of us had our jaws drop to the floor when you said that... :D

YAY! I'll have to head over and read your list. :)

And I do hate flying, but to get anywhere from here it's a necessity - and for someone who does it so much, you think I'd be okay with it by now... NO!

And HAHA! My shortness is well known to you and Nicole - that I'm sure of! LJ friends who have not met me yet might be surprised by my midget-ness. ;)

The fact that I never saw "Titanic" OR "Pretty Woman" is pretty shocking. :)

What? size 7 and 9? Are those children's size? LOL I rarely see clothes that size 7 or 9. It's like 6, 8, 10, no? Or are you talking about Japanese clothing sizes??

BTW #4, yay I found a person shorter than me! I'm 5' :)

I think the odd numbered sizes are Jr sizes... I know in the women's department, I'm a petite 4... But in the Jr dept, I'm a 7 - not too sure how that works... :P

I am shorter than you! (But then again, I'm probably shorter than MOST people! Except, of course, my Mom who is 4' 9 1/2") ;) :)

Hmm... I have no idea what your height actually is since I am used to the metric system :)

Plush shelties... must be CUTE!
