10 of the [best] ways I'm weird

Continuing the trip to:

1. I'm basically an introvert. People never believe me when I say this, but I've done the test: INFP. 
  • introversion
  • intuition
  • feeling
  • perception
The last three are pretty obvious and are very strong. But the first is weak, sometimes I'm an "X" a balance of introversion and extroversion, but mostly I feel like an "I."

2. I refuse to pay for cable or internet. Cable is a time-suck [that I love with all my heart] and I only want to watch Food Network, TLC, E! and Bravo. And Lifetime when it has Project Runway's on. Oh, how I love cable. Internet is me being cheap. I go to Starbucks to use the interwebs. Someday I'm going to have to bite the bullet and call whoever the internet provider is for my building.

3. When I give massages I think about a)making cupcakes, b)singing songs, c)muscles.

4. Pineapple and black olives are my favorite pizza toppings. Thank you, MG.

5. I don't think I have allergies, but I sneezed more times at our nation's capital than I have in the past year.

6. Sometimes I over-exaggerate, but I really don't think I am in #5.

7. I remember random factoids and often know just enough to get me in trouble. My mind cannot remember everything, just part of _______________. One time I was watching Food Network and I saw an episode of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. Guy went to some restaurant and they made something that looked delicious. It was in our nation's capital. That's all I remembered, but luckily I did a google search of the show name and Washington, DC and discovered that the place I vaguely remembered was called TortillaCafe.

Hello, lovers.

If I could marry food and it would provide all my cuddling, snuggling, loving, companionship, child-rearing needs, I would. [bonus way I'm weird]

I may have had a moment while devouring this.
A personal moment.
Not weird, just facts people. 

8. One time I was telling someone about my move [from NC to IN] and how sad I was to leave MegB and he asked me if MegB and I had dated. Slightly awkward, but a time when I got to tell someone about loving a friend and being in a non-romantic relationship. Then we talked about how socially it's generally acceptable for women to experience that type of friendship, but for men it's more difficult. If I were a man [only because she's not into women and I'm not into women] I'd totally date her.

9. I always debate and deliberate when I order coffee, but I get the same thing 95% of the time.

10. I almost bought these earrings and then decided they were too quirky. Buck-toothed squirrels?
I still can't decide if that was a good move or not.

OK, that's 10.
The list is incomplete.
You'll get more some other time.
We can blame my parents for making me weird. They're the ones who reared me. Is this a nature or nurture thing? Let's debate it.

I'd rather think about it by myself though because I'm an "I".

I think I love those earrings.
Love you people.


  1. Pupusas are so amazingly delicious. I had some in El Salvador. Now I really want some.

    1. shall we go to el salvador? my passport expires in a year. make it happen.


  2. Amy, every single time I read your blog you make me smile. You are amazingly quirky and beautiful and you are SO interesting to read!

    1. thank you, Holly! sometimes I feel like I'm just rambling and rambling and rambling so that's nice to hear! (-:

  3. Ha! When Bonnie and I went to DC last year, we used the phrase "our nation's capitol" CONSTANTLY. It still makes me giggle.

    P.S. "Capitol" is the building. "Capital" is the city. Unless you're talking about The Hunger Games, when all the rules go out the window. :)

    1. Double ha--I just used the wrong "capitol" above. Screw homophones. We all know what we mean.

    2. IT'S SO FUNNY! they say it on the news too and I giggle. Megan and I were debating where saying "our nation's capitol" came from and we gave you credit. (-:

  4. Okay, somehow I missed this until now. But, better late than never, I'm commenting to say - I was IN that Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, and I ate a papusa. (It's very awkward, trying to eat while TV cameras film you. At least, it was for me.)

    Thanks, btw, for forwarding the coupon code the other day!

    1. Jessica! I just saw you when I watched the video! I AM SO JEALOUS.
