oh goodness i hope this meme is still cool

1. I keep my nails as short as possible at all times, and haven’t painted them since high school.
2. On a related note, I think long toenails are super gross.
3. In the eighth grade, when we were supposed to be practicing trust falls, I let Joe L.  hit the ground totally intentionally. Sorry, Joe!
4. I learned to knit from the septuagenerian grandmother of the director of the YMCA afterschool program I went to in elementary school.
5. I straightened my hair for most of middle school.
6. Once my brother and I were so scared by an episode of Scooby Doo that we ran crying to wake up our mom on a Saturday morning. I can’t remember for sure but I think it may also have been her birthday? Sorry, Mom.
7. I am really, genuinely into soy. Soymilk, tofu, soy crisps, edamame, all of it. Even fake meat, most of the time.
8. For most of my adolescence and well into college, I would braid my hair into two pigtails before I went to sleep.
9. I am totally okay with eating food off the floor, but hair in my food (or even having to think about hair while eating food) is unbearable for me. Once I found an incredibly long hair in Christmas dinner and couldn’t eat any of it. Worst Christmas ever.
10. In my bedroom at home is a three-foot-tall wooden statue of an Indian princess that my mom and I rescued from someone’s trash when I was like six.
11. I read The Hiding Place in the fifth grade, and The Catcher in the Rye when I was like twelve.
12. I don’t get Pavement.
13. I’ve never been in any jet ski accidents.
14. I really like public transportation. Like, I can drive, but I would prefer to take the T everywhere if I could.
15. I think probably the first concert I went to was the Indigo Girls, and I was like eleven, and with my mom. I feel like this explains a lot about me.
16. I don’t know what “ipso facto” means.
17. Wall-E legit made me cry.
18. This is the funniest joke I know:
What’s brown and sticky?
A stick.
19. I have never been to a funeral. I have maybe been to a wedding once, but I wasn’t invited and only stayed for 10 minutes and I don’t think I saw the vows exchanged.
20. I have seen maybe every Arnold Schwarzenegger movie ever. My favorites are Eraser and True Lies. Oh wait, also Terminator 2.
21. The cell phone I have right now is a model that was created solely to be marketed to senior citizens. I got it because it was cheapest, but also because I am genuinely excited to have a 911 emergency button.
22. This Christmas, my little brother gave me a liquor luge. I will never be cool enough to use it.
23. I would say I average 5-6 cups of tea a day.
24. I can’t watch scary movies ever. Not even bad ones. I saw The Reaping last year, and couldn’t sleep.
25. My best time on the Intermediate level of Minesweeper is 72 seconds.
