1. I love trivia games. I love tidbits of information that otherwise normal people may not know, and the geniuses who made Trivial Pursuit, and other trivia games, seriously made games that are engaging and entertaining.
On any night of the week, I will ask my mother if she wants to play a game and nine out of ten times it's a trivia game. Sometimes we just read the questions back and forth and see who can out do the other by getting a full card of questions (six in all)correct. Sometimes the questions are funny and leave us laughing for hours, giving us stomach cramps.
For Trivial Pursuit, my favorite editions are Genus I (the original Trivial Pursuit) and Baby Boomer. I am having trouble finding the Rock and Roll edition, but I may have to peruse Ebay and other such sites soon.
My favorite categories are: music, history, art, and literature. Being that I majored in English, you'd think I'd be a genius in the literature category. Nope! There are books out there even I haven't heard of. Of course the best part is making an educated guess and being correct.
My least favorite category is sports. Why? If it doesn't concern baseball or swimming I have a hard time making educated guesses, AND I am awful with statistics. When I get an American football question right, I do my own little touch down dance! It's pure coincidence when I get some sports questions right.
2.When I laugh really hard, I make really weird sounds. No, really. I do! However, I sometimes laugh really hard and do not make a sound at all. I don't even inhale. I just have to wait until I stop laughing.
Other times, I snort. It's not quite a pig snorting sound, but it's a snort. My nostrils vibrate.
A few times I've gasped for air and wound up sucking it in. That makes a sound sort of like Godzilla roaring, but a tad softer. That usually gets other people to laugh.
I've made some sort of weird gurgling sound that sounds like a stuck laugh.
By-the-way, I love to laugh!
3.I hate “reality” television shows. I do not find shows about people's families doing odd crotch sniffing rituals or not being able to tell which ocean the city they are in is on, having any entertainment value other than listening to others making fun of the show.
Other shows that vote people off of islands and watch various people live together and treat each other poorly do not amuse me either. It's as if television in America has gone sour. I do not understand the pull these shows have. You worry about your childrens' brains rotting watching cartoons, but at least cartoons have entertainment value, where as reality shows can cause the adult brain to implode!
4. I don't care if the toilet paper goes over or under. Seriously, this debate has to end! As long as it's on the roll and soft and two or more ply, then I do not care if the toilet paper is over or under. I'd be more concerned when one cannot get the toilet paper roll started, or if there is a blue line throughout the entire roll (that happened once).
I definitely get concerned when the toilet paper is one ply. That's just gross. I get concerned when the toilet paper is too rough because, let's be honest, that hurts like the dickens! I do not get concerned whether the TP on the roll goes over or under.
5. I do not pick my nose. Aren't you relieved? I was listening to the cogs and sprockets of my brain moving and I was thumping through the volumes of my own personal encyclopedias and this is all I could come up with. I'm sure this is a fact that you always wanted to know. I think it's self-explanatory.
Now, it's your turn (oh yes --this is an interactive blog entry)! What five things do you want the world to know about you? It can be on any topic, serious or funny. Feel free to leave your five confessions below!
