Cinco Things

image source

AHOY! The lovely Emily at A Devine Life tagged me in a five things post, so here we goooo...

0. I'm bilingual! Me gusta Doritos Locos Tacos!! <-- this all started because on my sick day(s)... we'll get to that... I watched Role Models, and one of the Bring It On movies had a preview on the DVD, and the mean cheerleader tells Christina Milian she "doesn't speak Taco Bell menu." Seriously how did they get away with saying that?

1. I am straight up Murphy's law/jinxed/cursed. I never got to try a case in front of a jury at my last internship because every single case someone gave me got continued (postponed) for one reason or another. Literally it was almost a dozen cases. And that time (you know, like Monday) when I said I was officially back from my bloggy break? Scheduled my post for Tuesday, woke up Tuesday morning with some mutant combination of plague and the flu and an upper respiratory infection. Haven't gotten out of my pj's since.

2. I avoid pedicures until they're (overly) necessary because I'm so ticklish. Literally, some people live for massages and pedis, and to me they're basically torture.

3. I have a compulsive disorder called trichotillomania that means I pick/rub my eyebrows when I'm stressed. I don't notice when I'm doing it until they're almost gone. So much like the incredibly intimidating German woman who owned the restaurant my mom worked at when I was little, I have (partially) fake drawn-on eyebrows. Except I don't rub mine off on my apron when the kitchen gets too hot.

4. I never got in to The Bachelor. My mom loves it, my friends at home love it. It's not that I don't love me some reality(ish) TV, I just don't see the appeal.

5. I have a penchant for bad movies. Without a Paddle, 2ge+her, all of the Fast & Furious saga... you name it, I love it. I think I'm the only person on the planet who would have given Spice World more than 1/2 a star.

AND NOW! I tag:
Elissa
Gina
Ani
Fran
Whitney

Because learning more random things about you pretties never ever sucks. :) Tell me more!!

  1. The Fast & The Furious franchise is complete cinematic gold, and I will defend that to the death !!
    I just saw the photo and I was so excited - I watch all the Bring It On movies whenever I have panic attacks and can't sleep, and after this one, I am ALWAYS craving Taco Bell (they should open one in Germany already!). And yes, I realize that might make me a little racist, but then again, Taco Bell is delicious, so eh.
    Hope you feel better soon!

  2. So fun! :) Thanks for the tag--I'll have to respond to it soon. :)

    I, also, avoid pedicures because my feet are SO ridiculously ticklish. It's embarrassing!!!! Nobody understands--I'm so glad you do!

    For the record, one of my favorite movies is "Rat Race." Totally understand the draw.

    1. EVEN THE PEOPLE AT THE NAIL PLACE MAKE FUN OF ME! It's so sad.

  3. I saw 2 Fast 2 Furious 5 times the summer it came out. That franchise is effing amazing haha. I've also seen Tokyo Drift probably 4-5 times also, but I think that might have gone straight to DVD so what does that say about me...

    Also, too bad about not having a trial during your internship. I didn't have a trial either during mine when I worked at the PD, but I did get to write some motions and I argued one. Are you going to try to work at the office you had your internship with?

    1. I've never seen Tokyo Drift, on principle. I refuse to acknowledge any FF movie without Paul. ;)

      And no, I'm moving so I won't be able to try to work at the same office, which is sad because I LOVED IT.

  5. I'm SO ticklish!! I hate pedis too, but I force myself to get them. And I don't do the Bachelor either. I watched the first 1 or 2 seasons, but after that I figured out how fake it was and how it set unrealistic expectations for dating/life. So...no go for me.

    Loved learning 5 fun facts about you!!

    1. Oh man, if I didn't get pedis things would get ugly.... but I just DREAD them. Glad we're all weird together on this one!

  6. Oh my goodness... I love you a little bit more now for 3. I too have trichotillomania, and it's one of the biggest things about my appearance about which I am self-conscious. Thank you for admitting that on your blog, my partially-drawn-on eyebrows and I feel a little less weird now. :)

    1. OMG I've never met anyone else with it! We should start a support club. Nothing to feel weird about, everyone has their thing, this just happens to be ours!

    2. I stumbled across your blog on Pinterest and after scrolling through, I am so impressed at your openness. I also have trichotillomania fairly severely and struggle with it severely. I admire you for being so open with it! I've never told anyone except my husband. Thank you for your openness :)

    1. Crappy movies should be their own category at awards things! There's just a certain draw.

  11. I already thought we should be friends, but the fact that you mentioned 2ge+her just confirmed it. I try to tell people how hilarious it is, and no one believes me. I mean, U+Me=Us is awesome!

  12. Hahahahaha, I am def adding my proficient taco bell menu skills on my CV next time, how hilarious is that? :-D

    Trichotillomania? As a nerd of course I looked it up at wiki too see if you bullshitting me, I mean you are really good in making things up hahahhaa but SHIT you are right that word and disease is def existing.....Oh my goodness, a good thing there are eyebrow pencils and you master not to swipe your eyebrows off, that's horrible. As a matter of fact, I have so light eyebrows that I need a pencil to make them appear and believe it or not, beeing in a kitchen or not, I smudge them once in a while hahahahha, I am soooo retarded :-D
    I hope you don't pick your beautiful hair off?!At least law school is over soon, so no more stress there but let me tell you, life has so many stress moments in storage for you. BUMMER!
