Fun Facts

My blog is coming up on a year old and there are a lot of firsts happening. I remember my first post and thought about it for such a long time. I didn't even introduce myself, I went in feet first with the silliness. But it just showed who I was. From that first post to my first official outfit post in which was funny because I didn't expect for that outfit to get chosen but in truth it is most like me. So for this first almost year, I thought I would give you the opportunity to get to know me a little better. I don't really write about personal facts because I am lets face it labeled the funny girl. So here are 5 fun facts and I would love to answer any questions you have. So leave me a question in the comment box and I will be sure to compile and answer all at once. I love getting know other bloggers and their lives. That's how we become friends really, and I have made so many wonderful twat waffles!

Fun Fact #1 - When I grew up I wanted to be a singer. Yep, I wanted to be up on stage, singing my heart out. But I wasn't brave enough to pursue it. It meant sacrificing my family and how my heart would probably miss being at home. I did make a few demos in my day and tried out once for a rock band as a back up singer. But it just wasn't meant to be. I sing but only in my car. Weird fact, I don't like to sing karokee. I have and with a few drinks would but I really don't like it.

Fun Fact #2 - I don't listen to music in my car on the way to work, but I do on the way home. I need silence and concentration while setting in traffic, plus it makes me nervous. I also get some of my best ideas for my blog in the mornings. 

Fun Fact #3 - I suffer from IBS. It sometimes causes havoc in my life. When I was in my twenties it was worse. I couldn't keep weight on, now it has the adverse affect. I am not overweight by society standards, but to me I am. I also don't always watch what I eat. I think about my grandfather who was diabetic. They told him not to eat ice cream or drink a beer. After major heart surgeries and living a long life into his 70's his motto was what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. So I sometimes indulge. But if I eat a lot of greasy things, I pay for it. 

Fun Fact #4 - I LOVE college football. Obnoxiously! I don't really care about the pro's. They are paid millions of dollars and live this high life and you only hope that they do good with what they earn. If you ask me $25 million dollars to throw a football is ridiculous. Our economy sucks but these guys get paid all this money for 3 hours of doing something they should love to do whether they get paid or not. That's why I love college ball. These guys are fighters and not even half of them make it to the pros. On any given Saturday starting this fall, I will be dressed in my Orange and White, screaming obscenities at the television. Note to all of you, do not knock on my door, it could be hazardous to your health.

Fun Fact #5 - I talk with my hands. If you tied my hands behind my back, I would probably turn to mush which for some could be heaven. I wave them around like a eagle taking flight. Get me mad and I look like an angry wasp. It's just my form of expression. Even when I talk on the phone and no one's around. I am using my hands and arms. And probably pretty comical and nobody can see me. It may have something to do with being a Scorpio. I am very animated and I don't back down. I would fight the jolly green giant, but I gotta use my hands.

So those are five fun facts. Now your turn. Ask me a fun fact, question or you can leave a comment. Anything goes, no rules remember and in my bloggy anniversary month coming up I will answer them every one. I also encourage others to do the same on their blogs. Let's get to know each other.

Let the games begin,
Dusty

  4. GAH! I loved your fun facts! I turn down the radio when I get lost and also wanted to be a singer. It's because we're sissys, or the same person just years apart.
    love you!

  5. If you could be any animal, what would you be?

  6. I didn't know you were into college ball!! I LOVE sports, love em, love em. Pro mostly, but I really want to get into college ball.. mainly so I'll know who goes pro before they go pro!

    My question: Did you always want a ba-baby? Are you glad you by-passed your 20's before having one?

    ReplyDelete
  7. Which singer would you compare yourself to? I think that you should blog-sing for us.

  8. I wanted to be singer too, but I'm actually no good. I want to hear a love story. Your first kiss? Or high school crush?

    ReplyDelete
  9. I'm sure at some point I wanted to be a singer too. My parents used to have this crazy karaoke set up, but it was all chinese songs. So I thought I was going to be a chinese singer and tour all over Asia. HA.

    I can't listen to music on my way to and from work. I always listen to talk radio.

    Question: Besides the day you got married and had your baby, what was the happiest day of your life?

  10. I always wanted to be a singer too, but have a fear of singing solo in public.

    Love your fun facts!

  11. I used to want to be a singer also until one day in kindergarten I was the last one in the bathroom washing my hands and started singing by myself...only to come back to the classroom and have all of my classmates clap for me because they overheard. I've been scarred for life!

    Also love college vs nfl for the same reason!

  12. I'm the same way with my hands! My friends did tie them behind my back once, and I got verbal dyslexia - legit couldnt form complete meaningful sentences, it was awful!

  13. #6 crazy dog lady. oh yeah, I guess everyone already knew that, so you left it out.
    I do the exact same thing with the music in the car. sometimes silence both ways ... if I really feel like "thinking". but definitely in the mornings. except for at christmas time. I'm mildly obsessed with christmas music.

  15. love all these fun facts!!
    i love the silence in the car at times... def helps me think more clearly!
    my question is... have you always been this funny?
    do you have any funny stories about when you were little?

  16. I love your fun facts. And I agree with you about college football. The players are so much more enthusiastic about it. The heart and soul of the game is just missing with the pro teams. We are a Norte Dame household. Sadly... this makes for some tough days at my house during foorball season. But ND's glory shall ruturn - soon - hopefully! =)

  17. did you watch the men tell all last night?? your thoughts? sorry about the IBS and the havoc it causes, i wish you didn't have to deal with that

    ReplyDelete
  18. I am the complete opposite. I listen to music on my way to work. I sing really loud and off key. Occassionally I dance and get wierd looks. It gets me going for the day. On the way home, nothing. I like the quiet to undwind.

  19. Ever go to your prom? I didn't. I think I missed out :(

    ReplyDelete
  20. *Ahem* Orange and white? You mean orange and blue, right?! :) College football is the best. My radio/cd player is broken in my car right now so I am in silence most of the time too! I've started to turn on Pandora on my phone and let it play, but it has been nice to just drive and think!

    I can't think of any questions off the top of my head, but I will think of some and give them to you! :)

  21. IBS.

    Oh Dusty, the things you tell me/us that just make me love you. I love how honest you are.

    I have the exact opposite of IBS, now you know me better.

  22. I do the silence thing in the morning on my way to work too- but in the afternoon I blast my jams. Especially if I had a good day!

    I also talk with my hands like I'm signing every word I'm saying, I have no idea why but I've always done it- even when I was little!

    I loved your facts! Great post idea!

  23. Happy almost 1 year of blogging Dusty! Your blog is so good and you have gained a great following - keep it up!

    I also talk with my hands - a lot. I'm not even aware that I do it until someone points it out... oh well.

    Thanks for sharing a little more about you!:)

  30. I loved the facts. Although IBS would totally suck. I am hoping to never develop one of those kinds of conditions. Having no thyroid is enough for me, thank you very much.

    When I was little I wanted to be a writer. I still kind of do. Not just blog, but an actual published book. If only I could think of an idea...

  31. Just checking in on my favourite sassy blogger. These are great, I use to want to be a singer too, but lack of talent got in my way.

  36. Alright Dusty... so last week I didn't read blogs. I'm back. And I want to know what your best redneck princess story of growing up in the South is. Every time you talk about your childhood, it's something epic.
