Eight Random Facts About Me

1. When I was about thirteen, I used to pretend to have either a British or Australian accent whenever I went out with my friends. They would then say I was their cousin/step-sister/foreign exchange student in town for a visit. This was usually just to get the guys.

2. I can recite the entire movie of Disney's The Little Mermaid by heart. Complete with musical interludes and everything. THAT's how many times I've seen it.

3. I can also make my nose sound like a ukulele.

4. Music is a huge part of my life. I'm constantly taking songs that I hear on the radio and applying them to my own personal movie soundtrack. Sometimes I hear a new song that will remind me of something that happened 10 years ago. It still brings back the old feelings and butterflies.

5. I love the nostalgia aspect of wooden roller coasters, but I absolutely cannot stand to ride on them. I get an instant migraine the second I get off.

6. I once saw a maintenance guy sitting on top of a roller coaster. We found out on the news later that night that he wasn't just sitting there and had actually been electrocuted and DIED right there!

7. I can recite the months of the year backwards just as easily as I can forward.

8. I used to sneak into R rated movies with my best friend when I was 12. We looked old enough to do it. Now, I constantly get carded because I STILL look 17.

I'm not going to tag anyone, but play along! Either in my comments or on your own blog. But make sure you let me know so I can come check you out!

I love peanut butter M&Ms too! But I also like Reese's peanut butter cups :) I find it adorable that you faked a british/aussie accent when you were a kid. Your friends didn't make fun of you did they? ;)

I know Spongebob episodes by heart. There's nothing like a little Squidward sarcasm to get through the day.

These were great.

Princess - No, they didn't make fun of me. In fact, it was usually their idea because I seriously nailed the accent. Think I can do it today?? Of course not!

Jennifer - I know a lot of the Spongebob's by heart too. I love that show!

Lemonade - Sweet! I've never known anyone else that likes popcorn with tabasco! That's awesome! :)
