10 RANDOM things about me... what about you?

Just Jules tagged me for a meme today. I HATE tags. But I LOVE Jules. SO I'll do it. But I'm putting my own RANDOM twist to it!

I guess I'm suppose to tell you 10 things about me that you don't already KNOW! HELLO?!?!?! I don't have any secrets. I wish I could keep a secret about myself to save my life... but sigh... I don't have a chance.

So 10 things about me Random Style aka stuff that's just stupid and weird:

1: When I'm on something really tall or high and look down, for example the roof of my house or on top of a mountain, I have the biggest urge to just FLING myself off to fall to my death, I literally think, "What if I just jumped off right now!"

I am in no way suicidal... yet...

2. When I go work out and I don't have my wedding ring on, I feel like a piece of meat... and secretly I like it.

3. When I eat pancakes I have to do the following: spread peanut butter all over it, add jam, and douse with Sugar Free pancake syrup. Don't ask me why. I try and stay away from pancakes.

4. At McDonald's on the rare occasion I have french fries I HAVE to dip them in their HOT MUSTARD... that stuff is the manna of McDonald's and a lot of people don't understand what they are missing. I try and stay away from McDonald's and french fries.

5. In high school I got my first role. I was so excited and practiced and practiced my part so I got the timing JUST right. The play was, "Into the Woods" and I stood behind a tree back drop and stuck my hand out from behind it... on my hand was a wolf paw and I had to slyly move my fingers. People stood in line for HOURS to get their picture taken with my wolf hand. It was a great moment for me :)

6. For one week out of my WHOLE life I had a date EVERY NIGHT with a different guy. I married MR. Tuesday! :)

7. I have to give people 1 syllable nick names if they have more than 1 syllable in their name. For example, McKenzie after our first meeting I would proceed to call "Kenz".

8. I HATE talking on the phone. I LOVE to talk, but I HATE talking on the phone. Unless, it's the first time we have talked and/or it's the only way we can communicate. Then I'm okay to grin and bear it.

9. On that same note. I screen my calls. If I don't answer your first call right away then don't try and call again. Take the hint. It's usually when I'm taking a nap or I'm working on photos... but really, I don't need an excuse.

10. I get nervous to meet people that know me solely from this blog. I don't want to disappoint their expectations of me and even though I I'm not really a touchy feely person... First thing I want to do when I meet fellow bloggers is HUG them?! Track record proves it. Ask anyone that's met me.

11. BONUS: I can make my chin quiver, usually on cue, it's helpful in many situations... I can also make my ears and nostrils move separately. Stupid human tricks will be worth something to me someday... like if I do late night talk shows when I'm blog famous.


Random things about me.

So what I'd like from you is first of all... steal the tag if you are into those things and/or you don't want to think of a post.

Secondly, what's something random about you? Tell me... and just so you know I might tweet it! hehehehe



Malea said...

Totally unrelated. But I am still reeling from the fact that Matt and you have worked in the same office for however long and he just barely found out how the enigma of Shelle actually contributes to the SkyWest circle of life. Seriously!!!

♥georgie♥ said...

Shelle you complete
Glad it only took ya to Tuesday to find Mr right! that was cute and I was the same way on the hate to talk on the phone and screening my calls

Barbaloot said...

I'm totally with you on #1! Have you ever been on a cruise? Freaks me out---I just stand at the end of the boat and think, "What if I jumped? How long before I hit the water? Would I freeze? Drown?" It's awful. I try to avoid staring off the edge of boats now.

Something random about me: I only like PB and Jelly sandwiches if the jelly is red; purple, peach, good.

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

I am not very good at being random, but like you and Barb I sometimes wonder when I am driving what would happen if I just let go and drove off a cliff. Weird huh. I have however been suicidal several times in my life, so I have fought the urge. Most of the time I am glad about that. The fact that I am still alive that is.

Just Jules said...

thanks for playing along... love you man!

One more random thing - hate wine. hate it. good wine, cheap wine. reallllly expensive - h.a.t.e. it!

Anonymous said...

I have twice been asked by chicks if I plucked my eyebrows because they were perfect.

Anonymous said...

With regards to #1, check out Yeah, I don't do heights for much the same reason you do . . .

And another completely random thing about me? I have a very unattractive birthmark on the second toe of my right foot. For 40 years I've been convincing people it's not cancer . . .

SciFi Dad said...

Between the fries thing and the pancakes thing, I may as well have married you (my wife has the same issues).

Random fact about me: since you didn't read yesterday (cough), I can use this here... I was once in a situation where my clothes were on fire and I had them cut off my body. Then I had to walk to get help in my underwear with my smoldering clothing in tatters around my ankles.

Chief said...

I have to you really spend that much time on your roof? Do you own a fiddle?

Random huh? I like to drench my pancakes in butter and granulated sugar and then roll them and eat them like burritos

Shawn said...

Thats why I am afraid to be high up---I feel like I will throw myself off or throw someone else!

Another strange thing about me----I love hospitals---to stay in them---they make me feel like someone is taking care of me, and I adore hospital food!

Mama Belle said...

#2 - Funny.

#10 - Totally relate. I'm way funnier and cooler on my blog than in person.

Debbie said...

Me me me on the phone stuff. I hate talking on the phone (except to my hubby) and I totally screen my calls. I loved your comment "I dont need an excuse" Amen!

Random about me-I sometimes dip my plain, original potato chips into ketchup. They're almost like french fries right?

April said...

Yes you do like to hug your blog friends!

I like vinegar on my french fries, but I don't like it when my feet smell like vinegar. Weird.

April said...

I eat

I only eat dinner on Thanksgiving and Christmas and special occasions.

H.K. said...

I'm just like you, I don't like talking on the phone at all. It feels awkward, except if I'm talking to my sister because I know it will be short and sweet.

Most random things about me?
- I melt my ice cream in the microwave.
- I like to eat burnt toast especially pop tarts (yummy!)
- And I love to eat half-cooked oatmeal.

clan of the cave hair said...

when I'm driving, I have to tense and relax my fists according to the curbs. Tensed while passing a curb, relaxed while passing an intersection. Same thing for passing picket fences, relaxed for pickets, tensed for posts. I don't know if that's random, but I sure know its weird!

wendy said...

good stuff ---but I never took you for a Dating Slut (tee,hee) a different guy every day of the week. LUCKY Mr. Tuesday.
don't jump
pancakes are fattening
I too hate talking on the telephone
hate cell phones
a quivering chin is good ---I too can flare my nostrils (also I drool)

Shanana said...

You said it... No lurking!

So here goes:
Whenever I cross the street, I suck in my gut.

I think dirty, hairy feet are more disgusting than poop.

Whenever I stand at a countertop across from somebody, I stand on my tippy-toes.

I looooove peanut butter and syrup on my pancakes and marvel that the combination hasn't been made into a candy bar of sorts. But I also like peanut butter and salami. Maybe not as a candy bar, but you asked for random.

Oh, and I usually lick every little bit of McDonald's hot mustard out of the container with my finger. I think it's got crack in it.

The Wixom Zoo said...

Hmmm....random thing about me...I have a weird obsession with reality tv. Doesn't matter how trashy or innocent the show is - I LOVE it!!!Anything from cooking shows to the AWESOME shows like Wipeout. Ha! (That one makes me have to pee I laugh so hard!)

roy/elisabeth dean said...

My lovebirds, P.Diddy and Nelly, layed an egg today! I don't know nuthin' about birthin' birdies!

My Cocker Spaniel, Joe Cocker, chews his nails, then chews the nails of the other dogs. I never have to clip them!

My daughter's boyfriend said my apple pie was dry. What.the.heck? And he STILL wants to come back?

I went into labor on Labor Day 16 years ago....

Corn Dogs are my favorite food. I dip them in Ranch dressing.

I can't find my wedding ring. I about had to chew my finger off to remove it when a cute artist spoke to me at a gallery. I threw it in my purse and haven't seen it since. I am going to have to buy another one....I'm so ashamed! I don't know WHY I even took it off, I ALWAYS flirt with it on~

Feet give me the creeps! Creeps feet are the absolutely worst!

I'm solar powered.

I never took ballet, but owned a tutu. Some days I would put it on and go to the grocery store just because I thought people would be in awe of me since I was a dancer...

I don't understand "dressy crocs"

It seems some days I "get" you better than others. Wonder what that means?


ZenMom said...

This was a great list, Shelle. Very fun!

Random thing about me ... Hmmm ... Okay, here's one: I was once inside a building when it was set on fire - on purpose.

Homer and Queen said...

I have missed you...and Sage!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

ha ha ha I love this post. It feels so good to read you again. It's almost too good it hurts, you know. Like sentimental. I have so many memories of you and all the girlz when I was in Hawaii. My eyes are actually sweating a little right now. That's why I've been staying away from everyone. It's kinda hard. But I need to face the pain.

Anyway, I hate to talk on the phone too. And I know what you mean about blogger friends and expectations. My apostate brother was actually disappointed in me this summer. I didn't meet his CTD expectations. How weird is that?

I lub your new profile pic.

How funny you married Mr. Tuesday. And LOL that you are that famous wolf hand. Perfect timing is such an art.

It's fun to see Southern Sage again. What a card.

I miss everyone.

So I got your comment today. I BET you do feel like sleeping. I'm glad to hear it actually because I don't know how you keep going without crashing. And I'm the crash expert.

When do you want to chat? Should I just randomly check my google mail?

Ashley said...

I am a total call screener too!
One random thing about me is that I occasionally shower, straighten my hair, or do a variety of other strange things in the middle of the night. I'm talking MIDDLE of the night, like 3 am!

Please stop by my blog and enter some fun giveaways. I've got a really great one that's ending today for a kid's outfit valued at $113! I really need to get some more entries for it, so I'd really appreciate your help! And you have a good chance of winning too!!! :)

JustRandi said...

Random, huh?

Sometimes I drive 5 minutes out of my way so I don't have to go by Burger King. I think cooking meat sometimes smells like B.O.


Dopp Family said...

Go Mr. Tuesday!! Do you call me Ria? I think you do, but I've never really paid attention until now.

I can't watch more than about 30 minutes of TV straight w/out feeling guilty and completey unproductive... unless it's a movie or LOST (which we haven't watched since last season) or Glen Beck. Okay, wait, I think I must be losing the guilt!!

PS - It was fun to see you at Wally World! Our Ice Cream was delicious!!

Cherie said...

Very fun list and love the picture!! You make the best faces :D
First, I hope I get to meet you someday. We have a ton in common - Phone, screening calls, nicknames, pancakes with peanut butter, and even the thought of throwing yourself off a cliff (I thought I was the only one - I feel so connected to you now - hee hee). You are my kind of people girl!!
I didn't know about Mickey D's hot mustard thought - You have opened my eyes..
Have a Super weekend!
