If We’re Gonna Be BFF’s…

I consider you all friends. Is this okay?

Because as friends, I think it’s important that we share all the crazy quirky things that make us who we are. I saw this post idea over at Little Miss Momma and thought it was awesome. So I’m totally copycatting. The only caveat to this is that if you’re going to read you simply have to share. Don’t leave me to hang all my crazy quirky out there to dry alone.

Things my BFFs should know:

  1. I crack myself up all the time. And most of the time, I’m the only one I crack up.
  2. If I see Golden Girls is on TV I will stop everything and watch. Dishes drop out of my hands and food burns on the stove. For real.
  3. You will consistently find half-drank (drinken? drunk?) cans, bottles and cups of mine around the house. Drives Greg insane.
  4. I used to make my little brother try do the Dirty Dancing lift with me, but we never quite got it right.
  5. There’s a soft spot in my heart for Bell Biv DeVoe and all other 90s hip-hop rap groups.
  6. I can help you rationalize and justify any decision you’re trying to make.
  7. In high school I wanted to spell my name “Monikkah” until a friend loudly sounded it out phonetically making fun of me.
  8. In my mind I dance like a Fly Girl.
  9. In my mind I sing Adele.
  10. In my mind I might be a little bit cray-cray.
  11. I cannot be productive at all if I don’t have shoes on.
  12. I hate being barefoot.
  13. Lakes gross me out to swim in, but boating is fine.
  14. If my husband wouldn’t make fun of me for it, I’d still wear nose plugs in the pool.
  15. I’d tell you all about my procrastination issues, but let’s wait until tomorrow.
  16. See number 1.
  17. I really am so very introverted which makes me a tad antisocial. Big gatherings and parties totally stress me out. I’m afraid my introverted-ness comes across as snobby at times because I tend to hang along the wall or glom on to one person like a leech. But it’s really just because I’m pretty insecure and totally uncomfortable. Like totally.
  18. I practically ran down the aisle at my wedding because as soon as I entered the chapel I saw everyone staring at me and I freaked out. I figured the sooner I got to the pastor, the sooner I didn’t have to see people watching me.
  19. See number 10.
  20. I need alone time like some people need air.
  21. Whenever I see the clock says 12:34 I say “make a wish!” even if I’m alone.
  22. I am very methodical about my grocery shopping and always start and end in the same exact way.
  23. I am very haphazard about my meal planning and am always scrambling to figure out what we’re eating come 5:30 pm.
  24. Nothing would be better than an 8 x 10 of Will Ferrell’s face on my desk so I can laugh on command when necessary.
  25. I never, ever, ever eat seafood. Not a single bit of it. Grosses me out. This is why they kicked out of Washington State.
What about you? As your bloggy BFF, what do I need to know about you?

  1. Hey I don’t want to be anonymous :) I love you for all the things you said, not quirky, just special like you. I feel you on the cray cray! I would make a list, but since i’m taking a personal health day, I can’t add any stress to it. ;)
    Previous comment, mine. ;) LOL

  2. Well, to start, I have always loved you for #6…good or bad…teehee.

    Number 8 is SO me. Was just doing that this past weekend and then something moved wrong and pulled and then ruined my image in my head, sigh.

    #12 Opposite day! I LOVE being barefoot and that’s why I loathe (the bus) winter! Too many sock wearing days and my feet can’t breath in those things!

    #13 If you come to the lake you must swim in the lake, hahaha.

    #15 Goes hand in hand with #6 for me.

    I do have my own:

    – Love my alone time too, the house to myself is awesome and I talk to myself the whole time. Sometimes I answer back, does that mean I am insane? Good!
    – I’d like to think I am weird-er than I really am. When I think about it though, I am not, boo.
    – I wish I could sport punk rock clothes or even sort of punk rock clothes but when I try I feel old. Sigh, again.
    – I sometimes pretend I drive a stick shift sports car instead of my SUV b/c it has the option to manually do so but there is no clutch. I guess I just think I am superphly.
    – I talk to and sometimes sing to my dogs.
    – I always see grammar and spelling errors in everything. It can be annoying, but mostly to others.

    Love you Monie,

  3. You always make me smile, Monica! Thanks for sharing from your introverted comfort zone! :) Things my BFFs already know about me are:
    – I love God with everything I’ve got, but I try not to be one of those Christians who look down their nose at the person next to them because of _______ (fill in the blank). I’ve probably done something worse than (fill in the blank) in my past anyway, so why miss getting to know someone that may turn out to be a fantastic person and friend?
    – I’m a closet introvert. The nature of my life has forced me to enjoy being extroverted in a crowd, but if it were up to me I’d spend all day locked indoors with a stack of good books. Some days I still do this just to regain my sanity.
    – I’m a firm believer that being “crazy” is overrated.
    – I love all things coffee and tea. I will go out of my way to find the best place to drink a hot drink wherever I happen to be and then hug the wall of said place while writing whatever project I’m working on at the moment. I’ve been known to include coffee shop dialogue in some of my fiction work.
    – I love music. I’d drop everything to move to Nashville and become a part-time musician there if my family would agree to my crazy scheme.
    – I love seafood and couldn’t imagine my life without it!

  4. How fun, bloggy BFF! Introverted-ness, alone time, nasty seafood, cracking myself up by myself… I didn’t realize how alike we are. I’ll work on not leaving you hanging now.
