Random Friday Facts

1. I am much more likely to be productive when there are 30 things on my "To-Do" list than when there are 2.  

2. My favorite Ben & Jerry's flavor is Coffee Heath Bar Crunch

3. I don't like olives.

4. I always try to finish reading to books I start--even if it means I start a book, put it down for months or even years, then later pick it back up and finish it.

5. I LOVE Amazon Prime.  I spent most of break watching Grey's Anatomy.  (I just finished Season 5--that finale is heartbreaking!)  The free two-day shipping has been pretty sweet too.

6. I managed to NOT check my work email at all over Winter Break.  This is a huge accomplishment.

7. The Phantom Tollbooth has been one of my favorite books since I was in the fourth grade.   Up until this week, I thought the author's name was Norman Juster.  It's apparently Norton Juster.

8. My yoga studio is currently closed, so I haven't done any yoga in 6 days.  I think this is the reason why I've suddenly caught a cold.

9. I've been craving cinnamon tea this week.  I didn't find any at the grocery store, so I resorted to adding cinnamon to my tea.  This morning, I found an entire box of cinnamon apple tea on the shelf in my pantry and it made me stupid happy.  I've had 3 cups so far today.  

10. I am outspoken and confident today, but I was a totally nerdy, introverted bookworm when I was a kid.


  1. I read this last week and didn't respond but then randomly today I decided to... not that you care or even need to read this...

    1. I am exactly the same way ..but there is a delicate balance because if there are way too many thing I get overwhelmed and do none of it.

    2. Mine too!

    3. I like green olives but not black olives

    4. I used to be like that but my Kindle makes me more likely to purchase a book that I know I probably won't read and though I feel guilty sometimes I know I have no intention of finishing it.

    5.I love Amazon Prime but more for the shipping than the streaming. (I got rid of cable and I depend on Netflix and Hulu.)

    6.I went last weekend without checking my email all weekend...on Monday there was an email I wish I had seen sooner but it didn't really hurt anything.

    7. I have never read the Phantom Tollbooth but I know exactly what the cover looks like.

    8. I have never done Yoga ..I have contemplated it several times but I am not social enough to go do something like that.

    9. I don't drink many hot liquids ...including soup. I will drink hot chocolate and eat hot and sour soup but that is pretty much the extent of it.

    10. I remember you being this way when we were in school. I have probably done just the opposite. I was more outspoken as a kid and now I am very introverted and shy.

    The end.

    1. Blog comments are like Christmas day to me. Thanks for taking the time to respond :)
