7 Random Things

Mandy tagged me a few weeks ago. It's been a while since I've let you in on some of my (maybe-not-so-random) randomness. And since I'm trying to get back in the swing of blogginess, I decided this would be a great time to do this. Thanks for tagging me, Mandy!

1. I think drinking diet coke is my equivalent to smoking--the whole "oral fixation" thing. Because I really only want to drink them out of a styrofoam cup with a straw. I can drink it out of a glass (ok, plastic cup) or from a bottle or can, but I really only thoroughly enjoy it if it is in a to-go cup of some sort. (did you notice how many 2 letter words I have in a row in the previous sentence!) And if there happens to be Sonic ice in that styro cup, so much the better.

2. I've never left this continent but I really want to. I would love to go to England to meet all of the people that Kris is always talking about and to visit our good friends, Sara and Roger. Really, I'd love to go anywhere to see new sites, meet new people, and experience life in a different culture than my own. My only conflict is that big styrofoam cups full of diet coke are pretty much an American phenomenon.

3. I don't hate to cook as much as I used to. It's still not my favorite thing to do, but I think this is one area in which I have improved greatly.

4. I waited tables during 2 summers when I was in between years at the discipleship school I attended and then all throughout my 4 years of college. So now, when I eat out, I am either extremely forgiving if I see that my server is trying really hard but obviously having a bad night or extremely critical if he or she is being inattentive and rude. It's one thing to be in the weeds and just need some time to catch up. It is quite another to be lazy or M.I.A. when my diet coke is gone and I am sucking on cubes.

5. I've been wearing green a lot lately. I don't really have an explanation for this.

6. One of my goals in life is to be a contestant on Wheel of Fortune. It will happen. I don't want to be all "I'm so awesome at Wheel puzzle-solving" but a little bit I am. Asher and I watch together quite a bit. He loves it and is pretty good at calling out letters. So one day I will be there, with Pat and Vanna, and I will win big. And I will give lots of it away, go to England, and buy a Sonic ice machine.

7. I cannot stand to watch people eat cereal. It makes me queasy. I hate the way it looks and the way it sounds. I hate listening to myself eat cereal. And don't even get me started on drinking the milk from the cereal bowl! Disgusting. Kris does this and it grosses me out every time. Cereal needs to be eaten in private and the milk needs to be dumped down the drain. No exceptions.

Alright--there are my 7 random things. Please consider yourself tagged if you need a break from actually having to come up with something to write about.

How funny! Justin and I want to be on Wheel of Fortune sometime! We are ok alone, but we are really good together!!! Also, I can't be in the same room with Justin when he eats cereal:)

Robin said...

Ooh - I hate the sound of people (myself included) crunching on cereal,too. Especially when you can't even have a conversation with someone because of all the noise.

Jodie said...

Apparently, the cereal bit struck quite a cord. I completely remember you getting mad at me for the way I ate cereal when we were little! We must have been around 6 or 7. I'm on Kris' side. j.

Jamie Rives said...

Jodie! I totally just laughed out loud. I hope you will forgive me for taking out my issues on you! I'll tell kris he has a sympathizer. :)

Katelin and Jason Boles said...

i'm with you on the cereal thing too. i love cereal but can't stand to see others eat it.....especially my son cause he gets the milk everywhere and when he is done the cheerios are all soggy and i'm the one who washes the bowl and thouches the left overs. nasty!!!

Mamoo said...

Poppy and I both drink our cereal milk. Honestly I just don't know why she is the way she is.

Mandy Crowell said...

Oh girl, I am sooo with you on the cereal thing. It's so goss when it gets soggy with the milk. (and I hate milk anyway) I also can't stand to see people eat ice looks so mushy and gross when it gets on their lips and uggh, I'm getting qeasy just thinking about it. Anyway, thanks for responding to my tag!

Jessica said...

I just want you to know that you pretty much told my life story with the diet coke thing. We are diet coke twins when it comes to addiction/preferences.

P.S. I had a roommate in college who insisted on eating her cereal in our room early every morning as I tried to sleep. And I'm not talking about tiny Rice Crispies crunching. I'm talking Captain Crunch Crunch Berries Crunchy Crunch cereals.
