I hate spending money. Some would say I am cheap, I like to call it "thrifty."
I have the strange OCD thing about the way my groceries are arranged on the conveyer belt at check out. Like, if I can is laying on its side, I have to fix it. Tim puts stuff on there wrong on purpose, just to piss me off.
I make the best brownies in the free world.
Part of my left leg is always numb thanks to an incident at the Indiana State Fair involving the log ride when I was 14 years old.
I have a pretty good singing voice.
Speaking of voices, my voice is kinda child-like. I often get the, "Is your mom home?" question when I answer the phone.
It is nearly impossible for me to stay awake during long car trips (when I am not driving).
I have freakishly loud sneezes and I never sneeze just once.
I am usually very calm in stressful situations...usually.
I have a somewhat irrational fear of driving on snow and ice.
I have never had a professional pedicure (see number 1).
