I got tagged by my good friend Brenda to do a post about 25 random thoughts I have.  Since I'm at work anyway, I thought I'd go ahead and give it a go.  Enjoy!
1. I don't understand why people get so crazy upset when a celebrity dies.  I mean, it's not like you knew them personally!  (Don't ask how I responded when I found out that Ernest from the "Ernest Goes to..." movies was dead.)
2. I feel bad that I really don't pay attention to politics.  I just kind of vote based on a couple of issues and don't really care much beyond that.  I know that's terrible, but it's true.  (I've had people ask me questions and I answer them with a blank stare because I have no idea what they're talking about.)
3. I'm glad I got my mom's spelling/grammar/fast reading gene (and yes, I'm convinced they're all housed in the same place).  I've been known to read an entire book in a really slow shift at work.
4. Am I the only one who has watched enough Full House to notice the inconsistencies? Uncle Jesse's last name changes at some point.  He also goes back to get his high school diploma when he previously talked about not wearing the mortarboard at his high school graduation because it would mess up his hair.  I have more, but I won't bore you...
5. Full House is awesome.
6. I hate that I am terrified of the dentist. I can think of a laundry list of very unpleasant things I'd rather do than go to the dentist. Pap smear in front of an audience? Sign me up!
7. My mom never warned me that my first gynecologist appointment would include a breast exam and it freaked me out thoroughly!
8. Once, a doctor gave me a breast exam without warning me first and I almost had a giggle fit from the shock.
9. My family gives me laughing fits regularly--usually in inappropriate places.
10. One of the perks of being the youngest nurse in the OB department is getting to be the resident guru of all things Facebook/computer/technology in general.
11. I wish I had perfect skin.  Whenever it's time to get new facewash (or shampoo and conditioner for that matter) I spend no less than 10-15 minutes in that section trying to find the perfect one.
12. I find it disturbing how much I am impacted by advertizing.  I can't even tell you how many times I've seen a commercial for something (usually food) and texted Nick at work to have him bring it home.
13. I really like food.
14. Sometimes I pick my nose, then look in the rearview mirror and see Asher doing it.  Then I say, "No! Yuck!" and feel a little hypocritical.
15. It melts my heart when I tell Asher "I love you!" and he says, "ah too, Mama!"
16. While taking the little kid's youth group roller skating on Wednesday, Nick and I did the "Moonlight Skate," only I walked and he skated.  When I was younger the song they played was "Everything I Do (I Do it for You)" by Bryan Adams.  Now they play "When You Look Me in the Eyes" by The Jonas Brothers.
17. I have one of those two songs on my iPod. I'll let you guess which.
18. Number 16 was the first "Moonlight Skate" I ever participated in, despite skating my butt off as a youth.
19. I love taking pics of myself with the "Myspace Angle."
20. Sometimes, the smell of uncooked white rice makes me think of kindergarten.  They had an indoor sandbox filled with it.
21. I really want a Great Dane. I want to name him something overtly human like "Kevin" or "Ted" or "Bob."
22. I think my grandma might kill me if I got a great dane.  She does own my house, after all.
23. I wonder how many texts I would have to send in a month to be considered a "text-a-holic?"
24. I'm pretty sure the system we use to type birth certificates was used by God to type Adam's birth certificate.
25. I wonder if #24 counts as irreverent? I didn't mean it to!
I'd love to hear your 25 Random Thoughts!  If you choose to do it, let me know, so I can enjoy them!
