Although I’ve picked out this little ole spot in the blogosphere that I call my own, I feel like there’s parts of me you don’t know. As secretive as I can be, as a blogger it’s important for you to know what kind of soda I like, and what side of my hair I usually part, and maybe that I whisper crazy things in my sleep. Well … maybe that’s a bit extreme but in order for us to bond and become online buddies you need to know a few random things about me. Here goes!

1. I stand in front of my mirror with my iPod on and dance to my favorite songs – Despite the fact that I am a black girl I have no real dance moves. I can’t remember choreography so I am the 2 step queen when I go out. But when I’m home and I’ve had a “trying” day I turn my iPod up as loud as it can go (I swear I’m investing in some Dre Beats) and I rock out, white girl style. Kinda like at a rave party back in the 80s. I envision purple lights flickering and I sing my heart out and my fist pumps are on 1 thousand. I wonder if my neighbors can hear me?


2. In addition to snoring I apparently make other sounds in my sleep – At first I didn’t believe my bff or my bf but it actually wakes me up sometimes.  

3. I pop gum, like in the worst way. I really try to be quiet, especially since it really bothers my bf. But it’s something I’ve done for years. It’s almost relaxing to me. When I’m at events with tons of people or around important people – gum is my friend. But I realize it’s kinda ghetto so I am working on a polite way to pop my gum. LOL

4. Shy is an understatement. No one believes me but I am so socially awkward sometimes it’s pathetic. That is until after our first introduction. Once I’m over that I will yap the ceiling down telling jokes, cracking on folks wardrobes choices, and occasionally I may engage in a political conversation. But in a room full of fashionistas (and oh my don’t throw in celebs) I get totally flustered and I end up being the chick in the corner up against the wall the entire evening.

It’s your turn now … tell me something I don’t know about you!

    OMG! #1 is definitely something I do ALL THE TIME!!! Now my son joins me and we have dance contests….the amount of times he wins is frightening…I took dance in Elementary all the way through to HS so its a definite love of mine. Loud music from my Ihome and my favorite tunes and I am lost for hours….the ultimate workout!

    Love this post!

    #2 made me giggle a bit, lol. I too am rather shy. I don’t exactly like a lot of attention (though I’m sure my style would beg to differ), but at events and rooms full of strangers, I am quiet as a mouse and my phone is my best friend. Once I know you I’ll talk none stop, but I’m trying to get over my shyness by attending more events.

    LOL i am with you on #4! I can be so shy and socially awkward at times! It is so annoying. I am definitely trying to break out of it though…its a work in progress lol. I cant dance either and I hate songs that have choreography.

    Loved learning more about you.

      I think all bloggers are shy. LOL, that’s why we blog.

    Hehe! This was funny. Okay, hmmmm, let’s see. I used to wear glasses (well, contact lenses) and I got the Lasik surgery this past year. LOVE IT!!! Ummm, what else…. I grew up among all girls (5 sisters total) & no boys, and now am in a family of all guys (2 sons + hubs)! I love that too! LOL
