6 Little Quirky Things About Me

i can peel a banana with my feet.  i learned this because my mother used to tell me i had monkey toes.  challenge. accepted.

i can't sleep in socks.  sometimes i forget this and then it wakes me up in an hour because i must get them off.

i like to choose the opposite side just for fun.  often just to aggravate people, particularly on a topic i just don't care about.  if someone says chocolate is the best, i argue for vanilla.  if they're adamant about fancy beer, i order pbr in a can.

i'm obsessed with all things spicy and i want to put just straight pepper seeds on all my food.  i rarely think anything is spicy.  my dad is indian and i grew up on his cooking.  everything he makes is spicy and not just indian food.  he makes spicy pasta sauce and spicy eggs.  i think basically my taste buds burned off so now my food has to be exceptionally super human spicy for me to even notice.

i cannot just watch tv or movies.  at least at home.  i always need to be doing something else at the same time.  cleaning, blogging, laundry, cooking - i have to multitask or else i just feel like i'm wasting time.

i love things i suck at.  karaoke, beer pong.  the worse i am the more i want to do it.  but i don't really try to get better at it, i just keep doing what i'm doing.

anyone with me?  tell me i'm not the only one with monkey toes...

  1. Well I don't have monkey toes but I do love to nickname people and places! Also I am proud to be the first to read this cause I was literally hitting refresh starting at 6:58 hoping for your blog to update :)

  3. I'm the total opposite when it comes to socks - I have to sleep with them on, even if it's summer. Walker teases me endlessly :)

  4. Yes, I have monkey toes. I don't know what prompted me to do this one day, but I took one sock off with one foot and then THREADED THE OTHER SOCK INTO THE FIRST SOCK with just my feet. Felt like a badass.

  5. we are the same person. I cannot & will not sleep with socks. I am obsessed with spicy foods, & i hate sleeping along. I also give my closest friends nick names. Dave's real first name is william & i camm him willy bill. I also am ALWAYS devil's advocate which pisses dave off to NO end.

    soul mates we are.

  6. It totally cracks me up that you can peel a banana with your feet! I only wish I was as coordinated. I can't stand sleeping with socks either and have to multitask- movies bore me and I can never sit straight through one because I feel like I should be doing something else.

  7. I can't sit and watch tv either- I get up and clean something and listen to it in the background, or get on the computer, or read. It drives my husband crazy!

    1. But it's just being efficient! Then you don't feel like you're wasting time, and he has a clean house :)

  8. I am a HUGE fan of watching TV and blogging at the same time but I disagree with you - I HATE spicy things!

  11. haha yes, i have to nickname everything. my boyfriend wants to die when i order eggs and "hashies" at a restaurant.

  12. Seriously with your feet? How have you been drunk around me so many times and this has not come out! I'm soooo bringing a banana out with us saturday. I think it would be a good present to Ryan haha.

  13. I am also monkey toed and nickname everything and everyone. And I normally multi-task when watching a movie or TV.

  14. I can pick things up with my toes...I have never tried to open a banana though. I might have to give this a try.

    I don't think I have ever called any of my friends by their actual name. EVERYONE has a nickname and most of them make no sense. My friends bf was actually asking how she got her nickname this weekend and we seriously couldn't explain it.

  15. not gonna lie, i really want to see this monkey toe action

  16. Nick names YES. Tom's really the only one I refer to by his name and usually I call him bebe.

  17. Can I have a nickname?? ;)

    Quirks are the best. I only drink flat pop (the bubbles hurt my nose). And if possible, I prefer to crush chips up into little crumbs before eating them.

  18. I've been such a bad blog friend by not commenting! I'm sorry. I would love to see you peel a banana with your toes. And then I would be completely disgusted but intrigued. Spicy foods are the best foods. I don't think I eat them as hot as you do though. I think I need a nickname now.

  19. I also despise wearing socks to bed! It gives me anxiety. And I'm obsessed with nicknames. I'm pretty sure my dog doesn't know his real name because I call him nugs or nugget all the time!

  20. I'm a nicknamer.
    I gots monkey toes too but I have never tried peeling a banana, haha!

  21. About half of those sound like me. I hate socks when I'm trying to sleep, I don't care if its 20 degrees. I can't sleep alone either, or shower if I'm alone. I will have to take a bath becuase standing in the shower is just too scary in an empty house.

  22. I can't even peel a banana with my hands, so I am super impressed!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yes, to the socks...and just watching TV.. it's terrible habit! I try just sitting and watching TV but it doesn't take me long to go grab the computer! like i'm doing now..

  26. i don't think anyone can sleep in socks. i seriously have yet to meet anyone who does. spicy food is the worst. like i'm sorry, but it's just true. i'm the same way about watching tv. i have to be doing something while watching and i talk during them and college kids want to watch movies ALL THE TIME and i can sit through one, maaaybe two if it's really good, but then i want to go play.

  27. if you love spicy, you'll love scotch bonnet peppers! it's so hot that people usually just rub it onto food; my husband pops them like skittles...then he moans the next day when he gets the ring of fire.

    1. Haha!! I'm going to have to find those then! But not pop them like skittles, I don't need to learn that lesson.

  28. I don't know about the monkey toes but I definitely always have to be multitasking! My boyfriend always gets annoyed because if we put on a movie I have to have my phone or laptop out too...trying to work on that haha

    ReplyDelete
  29. wait, so you NEVER watch tv or movies? w/out doing something else? and I didn't think I could feel any worse on the Monday after a 4 day holiday weekend...

    I think I call Brent and Binx everything except their given names. First names just don't cut it.

  30. I think we might be polar opposites. I sleep alone all the time, I actually don't sleep that well when someone else is in my bed with me. I sleep in socks a lot in the winter. However, I do like spicy (but my tolerance isn't nearly like yours) and I am a multi-tasker (i'm watching tv right now too!)

  31. I think I need proof of this banana peeling with your feet. Video time!!

  32. I almost always HAVE to sleep in socks. So sexy.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I can't sleep with socks on either! And sometimes, especially in the winter, I'll forget that I'm wearing them and it'll wake me up hours later! So funny. Glad I'm not alone :)

  34. TIGER?!? I love it.

    Socks are the devil. Sometimes I try to moisturize my feet at night in socks and wake up all panicked. Not okay.
