I think I got tagged by Laura a few weeks ago to list some random things.  I think the magic number was 8 random things.  I’m not sure I can come up with 8, but here are a few.

1. Whenever I work out on the elliptical, treadmill, or bike (okay, who am I kidding.  I don’t ever ride the bike.  And I’ve only been on the treadmill once since I joined the gym in October.)  So maybe I should revise this to say whenever I work on on the elliptical machine, I have to end on a quater mile or nice round number.  But I don’t go for a certain distance, I go for time.  So, for example, I work out for 40 minutes.  At the end of 40 minutes, I’m at 3.62 miles.  I have to get to 3.75 miles.  So first I have to meet the time for that day, and second, I have to be on a nice number.

2.  But these number things don’t translate to other areas of my life.  I don’t have to end on a round number when I fill the car with gas.  I never even look at the numbers.  I never put in any extra.  As soon as the automatic shut off shuts off, I’m done pumping gas.

3.  I like batter better than most finished products.  This goes for all batter, except for things made with buttermilk.  Cookie dough, cake batter, brownie batter, pancake batter, etc.  I love it all.  But, I get a stomach ache every.single.time.  I think I have a bit of an egg allergy, and I can’t handle the raw eggs in batter.  But I eat it anyway.  Every. Single. Time.  I will never learn my lesson.

4. I get a stomach ache when I eat cooked eggs, too.  But that didn’t start until after I had Logan.  And it went away when I was pregnant with Camryn, but is back.  So annoying becuase I like eggs.  And batter.

5.  My hair got curlier when I was pregnant with Connor.  It was curly enough to fix curly.  Now it’s really not curly or straight, which means I have to straighten it every day.

6.  Well, not every day because I don’t wash my hair every day.  who am I kidding…sometimes I don’t even shower every day.  I always say I will do it at night, and then I get too tired and want to go to bed.  I hate sleeping with wet hair.

7.  When I was younger (like 9-ish), I used to hate to blow dry my hair because of the way it made my hand tingle.  But my mom would make me do it so I wouldn’t sleep on wet hair.  I am pretty sure that I shed some tears over it.  Of course, I shed tears over lots of things…I have always had a flair for the dramatic.

8.  I like to make movies, and always have.  I have some awesome movies I made with my brothers, including “The Quest for the Golden Spoon” and one about dangers in the home.  I made Rescue 911 movies with my friends.  Even as an adult, I made a Behind the Music movie with some of Derek’s college friends.  That one was complete with make-up and costumes.  One of these days I’m going to get them up on the blog.  Or at least find some pictures.  I think that this flair for the dramatic and love of movie making is why I like to make video blogs.

9.  And that leads me to a bonus item, I have a video blog ready to go!  I’m just waiting for it to finish processing.

Wow, I sure can talk when I get going.  I only had the egg and elliptical thing in mind, and look at that.  9 things!
