My friends, if you will please take note, this is the 4th day in a row that I have written a blog post. TAKE THAT, EVIL BLOG AVOIDANCE TENDENCIES! I think I am trying to 1) make up, both to myself and those of you readers, for the fact that I didn't post regularly for a while or 2) anticipating that I won't be posting a lot once classes start up, due to what will be a crazy-fun but insane-definitely-not-inane school load and not really having any free time between that and work and school and maybe trying to be social and getting ready for my mission. Or maybe 3) some sort of combination of the above.

Also. I have a problem. You see, I'm really funny. But not many people believe me. This is not helped along by the fact that when I went to post something witty on my blog, I promptly got caught up in looking at pictures and then the fact that this is my 4th day in a row posting and now I have forgotten what the really, really funny, awesome thing I was going to say was. Sigh.

So, instead, here are some things you may want to know about me but don't:

  • Like I said, I think I'm funny
  • I like surprising people and making them smile
  • In the winter when it's cold, my laundry room puts off a lot of steam that smells like dryer sheets and clean clothes. I want to kiss someone in that steam, eventually. I blame Siostra Tracy Allen (who leaves for Poland soon) and the movie Miss Potter.
  • I have the DuckTales theme song in my head and it is reminding me of blasting it and singing along with my best mate Lindsey on our way home from school . . . our senior year.
  • I am one of those crazy (read: AWESOME) people who likes to read literary criticism. Oh, yeah. Nothing like lots of good lit. crit. As long as it's well-written and interesting. Yes.
  • I feel like I'm always either serious or off-the-wall and like I don't really have an in-between stage.
  • Sometimes, when I think I look really good, I'll put on this "I Look Good" face. I discovered this freshman year here at the Y when Lisa told me about it. It usually happens when my hair is done or when I'm wearing red and/or a favorite piece of clothing.
  • I name some inanimate things, but not everything, and usually they are named after literary-bookish figure-people. My computer is Fred. My car is Emerson. I have a plant that I don't think I ever officially named but I think I've been calling him Fortinbras for the past little while (you see, he needed some sort of dramatic, Hamlet-y name, because he has an older brother named Horatio). My iPod, however, does not have a name. Neither does my cell phone.
  • I LOVE this.

I like this post a LOT. Also, that sign is so awesome. I would do that too if I worked for TFL.

Curses, now I have Duck Tales stuck in my head too. I miss you!
