Lisa: 25 random things

1. Diet Coke allows me to be the best version of myself. This has been confirmed by outside sources.

2. I secretly believe that if you heat-style greasy hair, it sort of cooks the grease into your hair again, like a hot oil deep-conditioning treatment. That sounded less gross in my head.

3. My genuine laugh is too loud to be considered strictly ladylike.

4. Who am I kidding--even my normal voice is too loud. Someone once told my boss at the library that he should hire quieter employees.

5. The best (and arguably only) reason to own a gun is to be prepared for the impending zombie outbreak. Better make it a shotgun.

6. I have been blogging for the same ten readers for almost six years.

7. I'm sure your McMansion is very nice, but I'd choose a smaller, older home every single time.

8. I am incredibly clumsy (see current black eye). I have a very real fear that I will fall down the stairs while holding Nora and kill us both.

9. I can't remember a time, no matter the number on the scale, when I didn't want to lose ten pounds. It's nice to have a constant in life.

10. I make Blake change his shirt because I love him.

11. It's fine if you hate Obama. Seriously. Just don't tell me it's because he’s a Muslim who wasn’t even born in the U.S.

12. Just because something is in print (on paper or online) doesn't make it true. Check. Your Effing. SOURCE.

13. I desperately need a new water heater. Invigorating cold showers are starting to lose their appeal.

14. I am cripplingly intimidated by everything my mom can do.

15. I'm in love with my daughter.

16. I love routines. Someday I'll put all the right pieces together to form the ultimate routine, and it'll just be perfect week after perfect week from there on out.

17. There were three people before Blake who I believed I was going to marry. Don't worry, if you're reading this I can almost guarantee you weren't one of them.

18. If I had to choose, I'd say James Bond is hotter than Aragorn. Of course, Jim Halpert is hotter than both of them. Not sure what that says about me.

19. I think I could leverage my librarian skills and my natural stalker tendencies into being a damn fine private investigator. Maybe someday I'll find out for sure.

20. If your proposed activity includes a) dressing up fancy and going out, or b) sitting on a couch with a blanket and fuzzy socks, I'm sold.

21. If there are garters involved, I will buy it.

22. I love being asked for advice.

23. I go to church because I think it's important to have a spiritual aspect to your life, and to try to be a better person than you already are. Church is one possible framework designed to help you do that.

24. I can't wait until it gets warm enough to ride my bike again.

25. I have found that people usually turn out to be more awesome than you gave them credit for.

#2 made me think "deep fried". That said, I'm glad to share a brain with you.

I know I wasn't one of the people you were going to marry before Blake, but I'm still holding out to be one of the people you marry *after* Blake.

And Blake? Same deal goes for you.
