20 Things

I've met some pretty incredible people since joining this tight-knit hockey community several years back.  Some I have gotten to know in person and some are friends of friends. Some I have lost contact with, some I still occasionally keep in touch with and some are stuck with me for life. 

Today I am linking up with one of those incredible people, Kym, over at Travel Babbles , to bring you "20 Things You Should Know About Me". Hopefully you all still want to be my friend after this one...

20 Things You Should Know About Me

 This is me (drinking wine). About right.

1.  I am a perfectionist, but also one of the messiest people around.

2.  We have a pet mouse and I talk to him like he is a person and talks back.

3.  My middle name is Rae.  I used to hate it, now I embrace it.

4.  I am obsessed with pickles and olives.  Obsessed. And no, I am not pregnant.

5. My biggest pet peeve is when people spell my last name wrong, even after I've spelled it out for them.

6.  I used to play hockey when I was younger, but my heart belongs to soccer.

7.  I think flowers are a waste of money.

8.  When I am hungry and do not get food fast enough, I turn into a huge "B".

9. My second pet peeve is easily polar bears and penguins, together.  They would never be friends in real life.

10. I am rarely ever late, and if I am it's for a very very good reason.

11. I have "Bieber Fever".  It was my New Years Resolution to get rid of it.  

12. I wish I was good at crafting. I can never stick with one thing because I get bored easily.

13. I have zero self control when it comes to chips, especially kettle cooked bbq lays.

14. I am not a fan of chocolate.

15. I am allergic to shellfish.

16. I have an irrational fear of buildings collapsing.

17. I cannot tolerate spicy food.

18. My body is out of proportion.  My short legs do not match my long torso, long fingers or long toes.

19. I work with animal pee and poop and even raw meat every day, but seeing/hearing vomit makes me very very queasy.

20. I am referred to as "the General" at home.  Woman. of. the. house.

Everyone's got their quirks and those are just a few of mine in a nutshell. Do you still want to be my friend?
