  1. In response to...

    #2: You're like my dad. They prop his mouth open because he will fall asleep during a cleaning/proceudre.

    #7: I agree!! Folding is fun, putting away is boring!

    #6: That sounds painful!

    It was fun learning some new things about you :-)

  2. This is so fun! I love posts like this. I'm totally with you on #15 and how cool that your parents took so much thought with your name. Something random about me: I'm wearing pink, black, white, and blue plaid pj pants right now. :)

    1. I love plaid PJ pants! Are they flannel? Now I wish I was back home in bed!

  3. I am SO with you on the bird one!! Oh my Lord, I am not a fan! I also spent my entire childhood and still kind of now afraid of frogs. Random, right?

    1. Once I was driving down the interstate and I saw a huge flock of birds take off from a tree and I had to pull over! Glad someone else can understand my pain! I'm okay with frogs but I could see how someone might find them creepy.

  4. Nice list. I'm opposite on the dentist though: I get panic attacks when I have to go. They freak me out. Maybe it's because I have a terrible gag reflex.

    1. I just think it's so relaxing. And I can't do anything else, so I'm not stressing about what housework I should be doing.

  5. I got my ears pierced at 6 weeks too! My daughters did at 8 weeks...LOL. And I HATE folding...AND putting away! I will leave a pile of folded laundry out for a week. I tend to let the clean clothes pile up for about 2! Which is why I probably hate folding because it's soooo many!

    1. I have baskets of clean laundry everywhere. Maybe I should just give up on the idea of a dresser and keep it all in a basket!!

  6. When characters in a movie have to hold their breath underwater, I always do it to, just to see if I can. Also I like to watch movies with sad endings only up to the happy part, then I turn them off. :)

    1. I totally do that with movies too!! But I can't watch or read half of something. Even if a book or movie is completely horrible, I have to finish it. Just in case it gets good or something. I don't know!

  7. Dentist! ::runs and hides::

  8. I can't stand vanilla either!!!!!!! (and I've tweezed the hair legs, too. LOL)

  9. I'm late, but . . .
