Irrefutable, indisputable fact is

There's this crazy fad going around on Facebook right now - to list 25 Random Facts about yourself. Slate, The New York Times, and The Washington Post all have articles about it. Eilonwy did it. Fran is doing a version of it. A former coworker used hers to announce the plans she and her husband have to adopt.

I might as well. Besides, it's about all my brain can handle after reading 200+ pages of research articles today.

  1. This week, whilst driving in my car, the music I've been listening to has been either to Top 40, country, or Brechtian punk caberet. The two weeks prior were pretty much devoted to R&B.
  2. I can't study in silence. My mind wanders way too easily.
  3. I have to color in my eyebrows. This is currently achieved with an eyebrow brush and eyeshadow.
  4. I have over 70 pairs of shoes. Approximately 10 of those pairs are dance shoes.
  5. I walked barefoot outside today.
  6. I keep certain articles of clothing simply because I know they might come in handy for a costume someday.
  7. I wear up to three different pairs of glasses in any given day - my reading glasses, sunglasses, and regular glasses. I actually have no idea where my sunglasses are right now.
  8. I constantly wear a butterfly ring that Fran gave me on my left middle finger.
  9. I collect butterfly and heart shaped jewelry.
  10. I own a broadsword.
  11. And a holder to display it on a wall.
  12. I will actually display it someday.
  13. I have worn a splint, brace, and/or cast on each of my limbs.
  14. I didn't get my ears pierced until I was 17.
  15. The job I had immediately before my current job was piercing other people's ears.
  16. I do not think babies should get their ears pierced.
  17. I have spent pretty much this entire day on my bed, despite the fact that I have two chairs in my room.
  18. I have both custom fit vampire teeth and mouse teeth in my theatre makeup kit.
  19. Ever since I started using my iPhone, I've wondered why some people don't respond to email as quickly as I do. Yes, I know this is ridiculous.
  20. I love hearing people say my name.
  21. My favorite number is 47, because it's the number of letters in the longest word in the English language.
  22. I keep my house and office keys seperate from my car keys.
  23. I graduate in 6 months and 15 days.
  24. I've been really cranky about the cold weather this year.
  25. I turn 25 on May 25th.
And that's 25 things you probably never planned on learning about me, or aren't surprised at all to learn.

I so agree about the babies not getting their ears pierced thing. And I am happy to learn about you, Amanda!
