Ditto on #13. There’s nothing more satisfying than clearing off your desk, but I can never make it last more than a day or two. :)

I am left handed and I have never had a bleeding nose.


Kristen September 30, 2009 at 7:21 pm

I used to think that I should be a hand model :) Then I cut my hands a few times and now I figure they are still nice, but would probably need to be a little too heavily air brushed…

I also used to not make my bed, but something happened in the last year and now it always needs to be made!

Thanks for sharing! I love that you had a southern accent.

I love my feet too! And I really love random trivia/facts so this one was right up my alley.

I am the opposite in terms of bed making and desk cleaning. I make my bed (i.e. fluff up the down comforter over the messy sheets) every morning. It gives me peace of mind. So does the clean desk thing; clutter aggravates me! How about I come clean your desk and you can repay me in Green Monsters and Glo Bars!?? :)

Angela, so funny about the foot model thing. All of my friends still to this day make fun of me because I always used to say I wanted to be a foot model. Also, I’m technically 5’3 1/2 and always say I’m 5’4…It’s much better to round up.


maria September 30, 2009 at 9:23 pm

I’ve always envied those who can go without the snooze. That is one of my necessities I am afraid!


Morgan September 30, 2009 at 9:40 pm

I’m a Taurus too! May 12!
Birds creep me out…I’m always scared they are going to “go” on me, and I think they are sneaky b/c they fly away so fast.
I collect rubber duckies and teapots.
2 things about me, I could go on for awhile, but Glee is on!


cynth September 30, 2009 at 10:11 pm

NEVER HIT THE SNOOZE BUTTON?!?!?! Angela let me in your tips. My posts the last two days have been all about how I’m a SNOOZE MONSTER.


WholeBodyLove October 1, 2009 at 12:12 am

I love this list! What a great way to get to know you! Mallard won’t kiss me when I wear lipstick either! Guys!


Pam October 1, 2009 at 1:36 am

Hi Angela!

Came across your blog & I love it! Wow, you never hit the snooze button?!?! HOW do you do that? That’s a superwoman trait I wish I had! I set 3 alarms and snooze my way through them all. I need to set my first alarm about 2 hours before I absolutely HAVE to get up…that’s so bad!


Marika October 1, 2009 at 6:48 am

It’s hard to believe that you’re shy, since you’re so open about yourself on the blog. I’m shy too… there are certain situations that just make me freeze up. I wish I could get over it but sometimes it feels more like a physiological response than a psychological one. Also hard to believe you were a troublemaker in high school!

At several points in my life, my dream was to become a veterinarian. More than halfway through university I decided my passion for languages was greater than my passion for science, and now I work as a translator. Another thing about me—I am extremely jealous of people who seem to pick up new languages very easily.

Since feet have been a recurring topic—I’m 5’3” and wear a 9 or 9.5. But I’m kind of proud of my big feet :-).


Kristine October 1, 2009 at 8:23 am

Ba Ha Ha, i’m 5’4″ AND A HALF tooooo!!


Sarah October 8, 2009 at 9:02 am

I love these, we have a lot in common! I’m also a Taurus (May 6), 5’4.75″ (so I claim 5’5″ haha), and I was definitely a rebellious teen. I only wear lip gloss too and I also did the choir thing ;-)

Oh! And I won a lot of spelling bees. I came in 2nd in our state one time too. Haha, too funny.
