The Facts of Rach

It makes me bonkers when people leave time on the microwave. Just push the stop button. It’s not hard.

The smell of cold food that is supposed to be hot makes me almost hurl every time. Leftovers are not my friend. It doesn’t matter if it smells exactly the same hot as it does cold, somehow my nose knows and the smell of it right out of the fridge makes me gag. Except for pizza. That I can handle.
I rarely wear a coat. Even if it’s 20 degrees outside. I just hate the feeling of bundling up. I feel all trapped and immobile and crabby when I have on too many clothes. It’s the California girl in me.

Speaking of California, I left my heart there. I honestly feel like I’ll never be the real me again until I go back, which may never happen, and I mourn that. I do.

Things I enjoy that lots of people don’t: mushrooms, roller coasters, doing laundry, anchovy paste, super spicy hot sauce, plane rides, super hot weather (like Arizona in July hot).

Things I don’t care much for that lots of people enjoy: hot tubs, snow, high heels, oysters & cats.

About those cats….I’m allergic. Bad.

I can’t deal if only one of my hands gets wet. If one hand gets wet, I have to get at least part of the other one wet or else it freaks me out.

Also, I hate having dirty or sticky hands. When I am cooking, I will constantly wash my hands after everything I touch, and use a new paper towel every time. Carbon footprint, I know.

I always eat my French fries first.

I was a soul train dancer for one episode. I wish I could find the picture of this….stop laughing.

I drink more water than anyone you know. And yes I pee…a lot.

I love Whitney and I think you should link up too cuz facts are fun and that’s a fact!

And Plus Also? This post insipired me to finally, after almost TWO years, update my About page. So there you have it. More facts about me in one day than you ever wanted to know. Don't blame me, blame Whitney ;)

Your facts have uncovered so many about me that I couldn't think of in my version of this post! AH!

I'm mostly wanting to comment on your little picture and about me blurb - the holding the door and waving thing is a HUGE thing for me too! Bastards.

Anyways - hasta la vista (keeping within the theme of this post, of course)

I love mushrooms and you! I hate dirty hand.. grosses me out and sweaty hands? BARF. Don't tell Benny that you love doing laundry bc you'll be like my Mom and be stuck doing his when he's 21 and moved out ;)

I am the same way about microwaves and washing my hands when I'm cooking or baking! I actually have to clean as I go, too. I can't stand for the counters and stove to get dirty!

omg! I eat my fries first too! LOL. ALways. And I am so allergic to cats- which is fine by me b/c I think they are gross. Ugh. LOL I am such a dog person. ANd cold food - yeah - I can not reheat chicken no matter how good it was to begin with - it just makes me gag when reheated for some reason - even when i'm not pregnant LOL !!! :)

Wait, so you mean to tell me you don't like cold pizza? Damn. If you didn't put that little plug about loving me at the end, I might be worried about you. Jussssst kidding. ;) PS. I will ride roller coasters with you until we are both barfing in a garbage can.

I wish I was a detective so I could find a photo of you doing the soul train! That's awesome! Luckily Leo likes leftovers so I don't have to eat them. Leftovers are sick nasty.

Hot tubs = love in theory, hate in execution. I don't want to sit in someone else's juice. It makes me shiver just thinking about it.

Stopping by from the link-up!! These are great!! I am the same way about coats. Hate 'em! The bundling up, the unnecessary fluffage they add and I feel like Ralphie's little brother from A Christmas Story. My husband is the worst about leaving the "Press Start" flashing. Grrrr....
