5 things you didn’t know about me

Thrift Eye

I wanted to break up the typical posts with a little bit of silly information about myself. I thought a 5 things you didn’t know about me type of post would break the ice!

1. I’m afraid of aliens – as a child, I would stay awake hours in bed imagining that aliens would land in our backyard to abduct me. It’s kind of a weird story where I have vague memories of being unsure if I saw an UFO or I was just dreaming. The thought of them still frightens me. I had a tough time getting through the Ancient Aliens TV show!

2. I hate bananas – I don’t think I’ve ever eaten more than one whole banana combined in my life. I hate the taste, I hate the smell. I’ll get those nutrients in other ways, so don’t bother offering me one or trying to convince me to do it. I won’t even eat the banana shaped Runts candies.

3. Long drives alone – I have a love/hate relationship with driving. I’ve done countless trips alone from LA to Vegas when I lived in Las Vegas and now SF to LA! That being said, I am convinced that cars are the best audio devices to enjoy music. I crave the feeling of driving with the windows down, hair blowing in the wind, and the music turned all the way UP!

4. I have a secret crush on Trent Reznor – maybe one of the more embarrassing things I’m willing to admit on here. But we’re all allowed one celebrity crush right? My first year of college, I abused my free color print privileges and printed out about 30 pictures of him to “decorate” my dorm room wall. My roommate was very kind to not say anything, but I feel bad about it now, and know its borderline crazy.

5. I sleep with a pillow on top of my head – yes, you read that right. I typically cannot fall asleep unless I have the weight of another pillow over my head. I’m a very light sleeper and I think the pillow blocks out light and sound, but something about it being there makes me feel more comfortable. When I was little I always slept with the blanket over my head, and I think this was just the carryover effect as an adult.

Well that was a whole lot of TMI! ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you’re wrapping up your week nicely – I have been a busy bee over here with work projects and because I’m a masochist, getting a second part-time job! More on that another time. Feel free to share your sympathies in the comments about my not-so-secret anymore secrets! ๐Ÿ™‚

      I thought I was the only one!! I’ve definitely had a few people look at me like I was insane when I explained this, including my parents. They thought I was suffocating!

  • What a great self-interview! It’s always to learn a bit more about the bloggers whose sites I frequent.

  • Haha, bananas aren’t my favorite either, but I’ll eat them covered in either sour cream, nutella, or peanutbutter. Also good in shakes, and bread. I would not eat any banana flavored candy. Ick!

    Driving…. Yes to windows down and loud music!! One of my main factors in car shopping was the ability to connect my iPhone, because I think CDs get ruined in cars and I don’t really buy them anymore anyway….
    I am not a huge fan of driving either. But when I know exactly where I am going, and I don’t have to change lanes (or there is no traffic so changing lanes isn’t stressful) then I might actually enjoy it.

      I have eaten some banana bread before from the store, but those things have been so processed they probably don’t count as real bananas anymore ๐Ÿ˜€
