15 Weird Facts About..Me!

I saw this tag on the lovely NeutrKris's blog and thought it looked like a lot of fun, so here we go:

 15 Weird Facts Tag:

What's a nickname only your family calls you?
Hum...I'm going to go with a nickname that only my little brother calls me. Ever since we were kids, we called each other "dork". I don't know why, I don't know how, but we still call each other that to this day. Even when it's something serious: 

Me: "Hey dork, did you see the news today?"
My brother: "Yeah dork, that was scary."

What's a weird habit of yours?
When I cook rice on the stove, I always set the timer for 21 minutes, even though I know the rice will be ready in 20 minutes. I have no idea why I do this, but I HAVE to do it. I've never actually told Mr. G about this, so when he makes rice he always says, "Hey, how long to do I set the timer for? It's 21 minutes, right?" It cracks me up that he thinks it takes 21 minutes to cook the rice!

Do you have any weird phobias?
I'm petrified of skunks and I'm convinced there's always one lurking in the bushes waiting to spray me. Whenever I have to leave the house when it's dark outside, I rattle my car keys LOUDLY as I walk to my car, thinking this will, of course, scare them all away.

What's a song you secretly love to blast and belt out when you're alone?
I've got two:

 
(specifically, the part that starts at 0.50)

And I LOVE belting this song because it's in the perfect key for my voice:




What's one of your biggest pet peeves?
When people use "it's" instead of "its".


What's one of your nervous habits?
I twirl my hair when I'm nervous. I also eat chocolate.


What side of the bed do you sleep on?
If you were in my bed with me, I'd be on the right side. I literally cannot sleep on the left side.


What was your first stuffed animal and its name?
I never named my stuff animals. Is that weird?


What's the drink you always order at Starbucks?
For years it was an iced venti Americano with about a 1/2 inch of half-and-half and two Splendas. But now I'm really into iced sugar-free vanilla soy lattes.


What's the beauty rule you preach, but never actually practice?
I don't really preach it, but I know you're supposed to rinse your hair with cold water after shampooing and conditioning and I NEVER do. I'm a wimp when it comes to cold water in the shower.


Which way do you face in the shower?
Always with my back to the water unless I'm washing my face (or the front of my body, of course).


Do you have any weird body skills?
I can make that taco-shape with my tongue. That's not really weird though.


What's your favorite comfort food that's 'bad', but you love to eat it anyway?
I really try to stay away from processed foods, but that neon orange powdered "cheese" in Kraft Mac and Cheese is my kryptonite. Wait, I don't mean that I eat the powder by itself, I mean that I love old school Kraft Mac and Cheese, of course.


What's a phrase or exclamation you always say?
I know this is a result of being a Southern California native, but I say "dude" way too often. I cannot help myself. Remember this bit from the 80s? It's TOTALLY true:




Time to sleep - what are you actually wearing?
My black Curb Your Enthusiasm t-shirt that says, "Pretty, pretty, pretty...good" on it and loose pink pajama bottoms.

I tag everyone reading this, whether you've got a blog or not! Feel free to leave your answers in the comments--I'd love to read them!
