25 Random Facts!

I saw this on Kimberly's blog and thought I'd do it also. It went around facebook not too long ago, and it was a big hit! I think its really interesting because sometimes you realize "hey! I do that also!" or something along those lines. REMEMBER...your never alone, someone can always relate in some way or another.
Just a WARNING!:: Some of my fact's ended up being mini-novels!! Sorry in advance! =)

25 Random Facts
  • I go by my middle name. My first name is Linda, I think I honestly am a Bailey though! 
  • I'm a huge 80's and 90s fan. Even though I lived in the 80s a month and 23 days, I love it! I love the music, the movies, the style, the actors, ect! 
  • Aside from facebook, myspace, blogger, and the news. My favorite website is IMDB. Every new movie I watch or hear about, I search it on here! It has trivia, filming locations, goofs, soundtrack listings, and everything else you can imagine! 
  • I just realized that so far all of my bullets and facts so far end in exclamation marks. I'm a fan of those also =) 
  • I love concerts. They are so many that I have wanted to go to this year..my absolute favorite people are all performing within driving distance of me...5 minutes away to 5 hours away. Damn economy and low budgets! =( A few people I have seen in my 20 years is...George Strait, Billy Ray Cyrus, Pam Tillis, Gavin DeGraw, Bowling for Soup, Lonestar, Toby Keith, (are you noticing a favorite genre?) Switchfoot, Pat Green, Cross Canadian Ragweed, and Brad Paisley.
  • My food can't touch when its on my plate unless its mashed potatoes and corn.
  • I'm horrible about calling people back or pretty much calling people in general. Whether it be best friends, doctors, schools, bill collectors. So if you would like to talk to me then text me or pray that I'm available to answer the phone when you call! =/ 
  • I have to always read something before I go to sleep at night. It can be books, magazines, pamphlets, instructional manuals, anything!! Its really weird! 
  • I'm horrible about taking pictures then not uploading them until months later. That's probably why I'm such a bad blogger! 
  • Ever since I was little I've loved names. They fascinate me. I've had my future childrens name's picked out already! 
  • I'm a sentimental sap. Ive been so homesick lately. I haven't made it home in a month, which is definitely a record for me. You are my hero if you live states away your family. I don't know how you all do it!
  • Since I've grown up on country music, I can flip radio stations and can always jump into the song and know all the words! 
  • I'm adventurous in my own way. You won't see me skydiving, scuba diving, hang gliding, or running with the bulls anytime soon though! I love maps and I have to know where exactly I'm at and how I got there and back. When we first moved to Tulsa, Eli was working and I was just going to school; and he would give me money for food and spending money while he was at work. Well I ended up using that money for gas and would just drive all over town finding new things and exploring! I love it when we go for little drives, granted they aren't the heartwarming back roads in BFE that I'm used to back home but its okay! I can successfully say that I have been to the north, south, east and west sides of Tulsa.
  • I've never been to the beach and most of the time I have no desire too. It just seems to dangerous to me. I can't get through the whole movie of Jaws, the whole theme music to that makes my heart drop. I've been told that I could always hang out on the shore but then again..what if I get stung by a jellyfish? Bitten by a crab? Suddenly washed away with the waves?  There is just too much to stress about! LOL then again, I'm a past victim of 2nd degree sunburns. The sun and I aren't the best of friends, so maybe the beach wouldn't really mind if I'm not a fan either. 
  • I used to be deathly shy! I have my first job to thank for that! I was a checker at a small IGA grocery store where everyone knew everyone and if you didn't it wouldnt take you long to! Well my boss James told me that I was going to have to greet everyone and get out of my shell. Well it didn't take me long before I was talking to everyone! Now I work at Target which a major retailer not just a local grocery store! I never would have thought I would greet and start conversation with that many strangers. I want to work with the public for the rest of my life! It's a funny thing to me because Eli is more the homebody/computer geek/anti social kind of person and I never thought that I would be with someone like this! I'm the social one. I make the plans for us to go out and do such and such. I have to take care of business on the phone. He just doesn't feel comfortable talking to people he doesn't know unless its through IMs or any other online messaging! 15
  • I've never seen all the classic Disney movies. If I saw one that I liked I would end up watching it over and over until my tape wore out. I continuously watched Mary Poppins, Cinderella, and Beauty & The Beast. I've never seen Bambi, Snow White, Alice in Wonderland, Aladdin, ect. They just never interested me. Once I found out that Bambi's momma died, I really didn't want to watch it! 
  • While we're on the subject of movies, aside from the 3 I listed above. I remember always watching Steel Magnolias, Fried Green Tomatoes, Gone With the Wind, and To Kill A Mockingbird when I was younger. I would quote Steel Magnolias and have no idea what I would actually be saying. Looking back it's humorous! I don't want some people to read this and think I wasn't brought up right because I was, I just never was interested in kid movies when I was little. 
  • I've been told that I'm an old woman in a 20 year old body. I like old movies, tv shows, magazines, memorabilia, clothing, cooking, ect. I;m content doing low-key things and being a homebody, clipping coupons and reading Good Housekeeping. Sometimes I think maybe I'm just trying to grow up to fast but then again this is just who I am and I can't change it! I'm not saying loud music, a few beers and good friends at the river doesn't sound fun =)
  • My food groups are Breads, Sweets, Fruits, Vegetables. Bad Combo I know! French Bread, Peach Cobbler, Banana Pudding, Watermelon, Strawberries, Fresh Broccoli, and all things Potatoes are the way to my heart. 
  • I'm still learning my way through the kitchen on my own. I just can't cook like my Grandma and my Momma, and of course not like Eli's Grandma. I can bake though thats about it! HaHa! 20
  • I have waaaayy to many tv shows that take up my life. Desperate Housewives used to be really intense but now it's kind of died down this season. Greys Anatomy is crazy intense and I love it! Growing up my Mom loved ER and I just couldn't get into it. I really think Grey's is better! I'm a fan of Cougartown this year..Eli is a sweetheart and actually watches it with me on Wednesday night! It never fails to make Laugh Out Loud!! Also there is...Extreme Makeover Home Edition, Sex and the City, and of course the reruns of Roseanne & The Nanny! 
  • A perfect summer day for me is riding in the truck with the windows down, country music blaring, my best friends, a cooler of drinks, and the grill down by the river!Hopefully I'll have a few perfect days this summer =) 
  • I love diet coke, diet mountain dew, red bull, margaritas, and apple vodka. 
  • I'm bipolar when it comes to cleaning and such. I will nag and nag until Eli helps me clean and pick up THEN when he starts helping and I completely lash out and criticize about how he isn't doing it right and he should just sit down and let me do it the right way. Its a sad episode. Somedays I'm down with it and then Somedays I'm crazy. 
  • I think that if you read all of this and was entertained to say the least; then I owe you a Thank you! Hopefully you didn't find me too weird!   


  1. I love IMDB too! That's so funny!

  2. I love your list! I can totally relate to the food not being able to touch on my plate, except for the corn and potatoes, they are SO good together :) And I also am in love with country music. So good!
    Thanks for the sweet comment you left on my blog! I always love hearing from people that they actually like my blog and its not just super boring! ;)
