I wanna talk about me

I wanna talk about me
I solve crossword puzzles in my spare time. I cheat at crosswords when I get tired or bored or just don’t know the answer. My favorite place to be is wrapped in a quilt. My cat is one of my best friends, but I like dogs, too. I wish coffee didn’t stain teeth and invite dehydration, ‘cause then I’d drink a steady flow. Whole milk is my favorite but I drink 2% because I’m afraid my metabolism will slow down someday. I’m kind of a hypochondriac. My inner monologue is constant and, I think, rather entertaining. I like to be told bedtime stories and to have my hand held. I sleep with a teddy bear. I’m a mix of Monica Geller, Kathleen Kelly and Sally Allbright… or at least I like to think so, because they’re my favorite fictional characters. I love cheesy musicals and sometimes pretend the leading man is singing about me. I can be slightly narcissistic. I like pink but prefer to surround myself with earth tones. I love orange, even though it reminds me of Auburn, Florida, Miami and Tennessee. I wish I were more spontaneous. I’m a daydreamer. I love road trips and long conversations with friends. I can have an adventure without leaving town. I don’t like the phone very much, but I can get past that for people who are important to me. I think I’m a catch. I don’t believe it’s a meal unless it includes meat, spinach or eggplant. I love Jesus but always fall short of my expectations. I read two or three books a week. I think daisies are the friendliest flower, but I love daffodils and tulips even more. A man who can sing makes my knees wobble, but a man who can write makes me melt. I love brown. Chocolate is always appropriate but flowers are better still. I love hugs. Sepia photographs are the best. I think I’m a princess but have never dated a man who agreed. My cat is a better judge of character than I am. I’m wee. Autumn makes me want to fall in love. Summer makes me want to flirt. I express my moods through my earrings. I think curly hair is the best, especially on men. Plaids, long sleeve, button down collared shirts make me want to snuggle. Just like every other woman, I feel fat at “that time of the month.” Unlike many women, I know I’m not. I think coffee shops and board games make great first (or second, or thirty-second) dates. I enjoy being single. I want to wake up with rain falling on a tin roof while I’m safe there in your arms. I love playing in the rain. Good songs are better with the windows down, especially when it’s cold. The beach is best at night. Honeysuckle is my favorite fragrance; it reminds me of my childhood. Fondue is overrated but I still like it. I think paper is romantic. I’m crazy, but I like me this way. I’m a drama queen, but it keeps life interesting. I’m a list maker. I wish I looked good in yellow. I keep myself awake at night thinking about what is, what has been and what will be. I love art galleries and I miss living within walking distance of several. I love rich fabrics–I should probably learn to sew. I spend money when I’m lonely. I’m not sure if I look good in hats, but I have several anyway. I have more winter wear than a Southerner probably should. I love leaves; maybe that’s why autumn is my favorite. My favorite sound is the crunch of stomping in piles of fallen leaves. I like Pottery Barn, even though it’s big and corporate and looks like everyone else’s stuff. I think the best rooms aren’t purchased at Rooms to Go. I like interior design. (Once I thought about majoring in it.) I’m an excellent letter writer. I can talk for hours about football, coffee and my cat. I’ve been called eccentric; I took it as a compliment. Valentine’s Day doesn’t really bother me, though I’ve never had a date on it. I haven’t had a proper date since 1999. I don’t know what I want, but at least I know that much. I want to play guitar, but I’m too lazy to learn. My guitar is pretty, anyway. Heirlooms are better than fancy new things. I have a squeaky voice in which I talk to animals and babies. I might want a dog someday. I know I want babies someday… at least one, anyway. There’s nothing easier than loving a newborn. I’ve never been “in love.” Maybe someday. I put lots of things off to “someday.” I’m trying to stop. Perhaps my biggest faith challenge is perfectionism. I’m very type A. I’m more forgiving of others than of myself. I like pigtails, flannel and cowboy boots. I have romanticized ideas of the west. I love curly haired men. I have a certain voice I use when I want someone to think I’m cute. It’s kind of annoying. I have a huge smile (even though I’m self conscious about my teeth). I love the smell of coffee. When I was a little girl, I dreamed of marrying a man who drank it so I could smell it every morning. I had no idea how much I would love it myself. I read too much, get quiet in large groups and have recently learned to enjoy wearing socks.

    I solve logic puzzles in my spare time. I cheat or give up if i find something i’d rather do. My favorite place to be is wrapped in a sleeping bag with someone special on top of a mountain. I don’t have best friends, just a few close ones. I wish coffee didn’t stan teeth and invite dehydration, ‘cause then I’d drink a steady flow. Alcohol as well. I love the creaminess of 2% and think whole milk would be even better, but i haven’t tried it. My sister is a hypochondriac. My inner monologue is constant, and annoying when it doesn’t go away at night. I like to be read stories and to hold someone’s hand. I do not sleep with a teddy bear. I’m a mix of Hitch, Joey Tribbiani, and Aragorn; or at least I like to think so, because they’re my favorite fictional characters. I enjoy good musicals and find myself empathizing with the characters. I can be fairly narcissitic. I would wear pink but prefer to dress myself with grays and blues. I wish I had more friends who would be spontaneous with me. I’m a daydreamer, but mostly at night when i’m lying awake in bed. I love road trips and long conversations with friends. I can have an adventure without leaving town. I don’t like the phone very much, but I can get past that for people who are important to me. I know that I’m a catch. I don’t believe it’s a meal unless it includes meat. just meat. I love Jesus but always fall short of my expectations. I used to read two or three books a week, and am slowly working back up to that. I think irises are the coolest flower, but I love the smell of lilacs. A nothing turns my head like a woman who can sing harmony. Money is always appropriate but random gifts are better still. I love hugs, and kissed. Sepia photographs are the best, but black and white look better on my wall. I only date princesses who don’t realize they are. I can be too trusting, despite being a decent judge of character. I’m huge. Spring makes me want to fall in love. Summer makes me want to flirt. I express my moods through my facial hair. I think hair style depends very much on the person. Plaid, long sleeve, button down collared shirts make me want to snuggle. Girls look hot in my plaid, long sleeve, button down collared shirts. I think coffee shops and board games make great first (or second, or thirty-second) dates, but i would never date someone i can’t enjoy a walk with right off the bat. I enjoy being single, but enjoy usually means “check out the prospects.” I want to wake up with rain falling on a tent roof while she’s safe there in my arms. I love playing in the rain. Good songs are better with the windows down and friends singing along. The beach is best at night. Fondue is just kind of strange. I think women on motorcycles are sexy. I’m not crazy, everyone else must be. I shun drama, but it still seems to find me. I’m a list maker. Who would ever want to wear yellow? I keep myself awake at night thinking about what is, what has been and what will be. I love cool bars and I miss living within walking distance of many. I spend money when I’m lonely. I’ve never been a hat person, and don’t own any. I have more winter wear than anyone in Texas should, but i’ll need it when i visit home. I love running streams and waterfalls; maybe that’s why spring is my favorite. My favorite sound is the trickling of a brook. I like Ikea, even though it’s big and corporate and looks like everyone else’s stuff. I think the best rooms aren’t purchased at Rooms to Go. I like to think i can do interior design, but i’m not sure that i actually pull it off. I’m an fairly proficient at writing for being an engineer. I can talk for hours about computers, paintball and my random adventures. I’ve been called a geek; I took it as a compliment. I’ve broken up with a girl right before Valentine’s Day so i wouldn’t have to do anything for it. My last proper date was around christmas, but they’re not as frequent as i would like. I don’t know what I want, but at least I know that much. I am practicing guitar and violin every chance i get. Fancy new things are better than heirlooms. I haven’t heard that squeeky voice yet. I might want a dog someday. I know I want babies someday…all boys. There’s nothing easier than loving a newborn. I’ve never been “in love.” Maybe someday. “Someday” turns out to be now, and i’m doing all sorts of things. Perhaps my biggest faith challenge is perfectionism. I’m very type A. I’m more forgiving of others than of myself. I like pigtails, flannel and cowboy boots. I have romanticized ideas of the west, but it’s not for me. I love curly haired women, and straight haired women. any hair, as long as it’s there and not a mullet. I have a certain voice I use when I want someone to open up to me. It works. I have a huge smile (even though I’m self conscious about my teeth). I love the smell of coffee. I don’t read enough, get quiet in large groups until i know everyone, and have recently bought an ipod.
