Because You Asked

Because you asked, I will list some things about me that you may not know.

• I am sarcastic. I find sarcasm in others quite annoying.
  I don’t find myself annoying though.

• I work from home and never leave the house unless I absolutely
   have to because leaving the house requires me to shower and do
   my hair.

• My husband, Brian, and I have only been married for 4 ½ years.
  I like him a lot.

• When I was young I made a hit list. The only two names that I
   remember on it were Dave Killman (a rather large man who
   sat on one of our kitchen chairs and broke it) and Art Linkletter
   (because apparently my  mother met him once and he wasn’t very
    nice to her).

• I break out in hives on my arms and my eyebrows itch every time
   we go out of town.

• I am addicted to raspberry lemonade Chap Stick.
  I apply it at least thirty times a day.
  I have tubes stashed all over the house.

• I could live without a television.
  The only time I turn it on is about 5 minutes before I fall asleep.

• I would love to live in a cottage style house or a bungalow.
  I will never buy a stucco house again. Ever!

• I don’t sweat much in the summer;
   I sweat in the winter when I’m cold.

• Guacamole is my favorite food group.

• I have an aversion to blue ink pens.

• When I was young, my sister told me that if I went to bed
   with a moth in my room, it would sew my mouth closed while
   I was sleeping and I would starve to death.
   To this day, when I see a moth, I cover my mouth.

• I really want to like alcohol.
  I want to have a cocktail in the evenings every once in a while.
  It sounds fancy. Like on Bewitched.
  But I don’t like the taste of any of it.

• When I go back to Indiana to visit, my favorite thing to do
   as soon as I get off the plane is to rent a car and just drive.
   I don’t look at a map; I just drive down country roads
   and get lost. I never make plans to meet up with anyone
   until the following day because I never know where I’ll end up.

• When I was young, I wanted to be either a playground attendant
   or a Quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys.

• I may have lied a little; no one asked me for this list.

Deborah in Atlanta said...

I loved reading your comments. And I'm with you - I love raspberry lemonade Chap Stick. I haven't seen it anywhere but the Dollar Store. And I grab it up when I can!

Funny that you like sarcasm in yourself, but not others.

Bethany said...

I don't think you're sarcastic at all. Not one bit. :)

Ashley said...

That is all very...interesting. I used to break out in hives from head to toe when I was little because I was allergic to A LOT of soaps and detergents. No bueno. I wonder if you get them because of something in the air that isn't around your home.

ain't for city gals said...

Darn it...I can't remember everything I want to say if I can't refer back to the post!! But I do know one are NOT sarcastic!! how! Save your day I might sell the 10 footer...but only to someone that will love her as much as I do already...

Tabitha said...

Maybe no one asked, but that's still good to know. I'm making a note to myself to keep all sarcastic thoughts to myself and to try to find some of that Chap Stick. I've never seen that flavor around here. :-) I've also never lived in a stucco house, so I have to ask - are they harder to maintain?

Tricia said...

Holly: Thank you for visiting my blog and taking the time to comment! I like that you read everything in reverse...that means I'm getting younger, right? About the bird pillow, I used punchneedle for it. Have you ever tried it? It was all the rage here in Missouri about five years ago and now I think I'm probably the only person who still loves it. I totally relate to your aversion to leaving your house. I work from home, too, and I love it. I need to find another job and I'm praying that I can find another work-from-home option. I'm with you on the stucco, too. Have a great weekend!

You are too funny:)

Amy said...

I love driving the country back roads.

I have never seen raspberry lemonade Chapstick but must look.

The house I built 6 years ago and have since sold was stucco. I really hated it.

I love posts like this.

Lucy (aka rharper) said...

Amen on the stucco house! Before I die, I want a house like my grandmother had with a porch on the front. I don't see that happenin'.

Laraine Eddington said...

The enigma that is Holly has only become more enigmatic in the reading of this list. Oh you sassy woman of mystery you!

Kris said...

Well, I just keep learning such interesting things about you!!! And the post on the baby quail was precious. Glad the little guy found his mommy!!! Been super busy here. Not much blogging!

Pink Overalls @DIY Home Staging said...

Lucky us that you choose to stay home and write these entertaining posts.

Thanks for the warning about raspberry Chap Stick. It sounds like a gateway drug.

Don't leave the house. You may find an interesting life out there, and quit blogging.

I love the Chapstick addiction. I have lip balm in various forms in every nook and cranny in my purses, home and office. I constantly change brands convinced there is a better one out there. Congrats on being lip balm monogamous, it is a big accomplishment.

Linda said...

I love the list....I'm with you...I love being home and working in whatever I feel like wearing at the time! I'm addicted to Blistex Silk and makes my lips so soft and shiny!

Katherines Corner said...

I love your list. Knowing more about you is a pleasure. Hmm guac is a food group. Yea I love it too, giggle. Hugs and happy Friday

Tammy said...

You should've been the quarterback for the Cowboys!! You could've hooked me up. lol!!

Genn said...

I LOVE yoru sarcasm Holly. It cracks me up.
And your last tid bit of info was pretty funny too.
I totally get the hives when you leave town, the older I get, the weirder I am about leaving too far away.
The alcohol thing, ever tried malibu rum in a diet coke? Hmmm.
I like getting to know you. ;)

Seven Gates Farm said...

You witty gal, you. Home is good. It's where you can scratch the itch!! Debi

just call me jo said...

Look at all the comments you got... So cool! You didn't have to tell me you're sarcastic. That's the only kind of people I can read. The others make me break out in hives on my eyelids. I MUST find raspberry lemonade Chapstik. Who knew?? You know I hate stucco especially's everywhere. It's everywhere--at least in AZ. I'm home for a couple of days and then off to Rach's. Then after that we MUST do lunch!

Love your list, way too cute. Such a sense of humor and I love it.

You asked about flowers, there isn't a lot for the summer except what you see at HD and Lowe's. I try to have some flowering bushes. The orange and fire bells grow really well and produce a ton of flowers, I also have some Hibiscus and some roses. When fall comes you can plant all kinds of flowers and they will do really well. Summers are just the pits. Hugs, Marty

Oh I was going to tell you, DH stopped by some roadside stands yesterday and brought home a fabulous watermelon, cantelope and a huge bag of red potatoes and onions. Love the produce at these stands this time of year. Hugs, Marty
